Trojan Script Becomes Glued to Super Glue Website
According to a warning by security company Avast Software, before eliminating malevolent redirection scripts, people who visited the globally popular Super Glue's website were diverted onto another that thrust crud. Also, the company further warned that the website -supergluecorp.com remained contaminated for no less than 5 days starting August 5, 2011 and during that period Web-surfers were diverted several times to finally land onto a payload that was then dormant. TheRegister published this in news on August 10, 2011.
Reportedly, when diverted again and again, the Web-surfers were channeled through several intermediary sites that were based in Russia. Thereafter, the landing website, also hosted in Russia, probably triggered a scareware campaign although any other mischief couldn't be ruled out. People visiting Super Glue were put in danger till the time the adhesive manufacturer, on August 11, 2011, fixed the problem.
Nevertheless, Avast Software stated that the infection had been notified to Super Glue that apparently had cleaned the stuff on the day of reporting.
