Malware Attack Hit Lyme Public Library Website

Lymeline.com dated July 29, 2012 reported that Lyme Public Library website attacked by malware in and around July 8.

The website was damaged in the beginning of July 2012 but if you have clicked there of late, you will see a terrible warning that it is a "Reported Attack site" and that utilizing it could spoil your computer or share the dangerous software onto your machine and multiply it among others.

The Library has preset the problem and the malware is no more with the website so the Lyme Library wants everyone to be aware that there's no reason for anxiety. The only issue left is that the browsers that verify the websites for malware and computer viruses haven't rescanned the site of the attack, thus the message still blinks.

Elaborating on the attack, the library administration said: "we apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. We are trying our level best to solve the problem. We will let you know as earliest as when the website is displaying properly again" according to a statement published by lymepl.blogspot.in on July 28, 2012.

For now, to offer library patrons with continuous access to the Library's online catalog and additional resources that is as the library continues to get rid of the impending problem. The Library has sent links on its blog accessible at http://www.lymepl.blogspot.com. The links are available in the sidebar just below the Pages heading.

Besides library catalog, the links also contains the library's downloadable e books and audio books, the library events calendar and ICONN database.

To contact the library, patrons can call via phone at its hotline number or by email at staff@lymepl.org. For help with any information s not available on the blog, highlighted by library.

Unluckily, it is because of malicious attacks of before mentioned types that have provoked to rush in malware over the internet, examined the issue comment by security officials.

Moreover, Lyme's Public Library website is not only site which is hit by cybercriminals recently. In May 2012, Amnesty International's UK website was compromised and used to launch an infamous backdoor Trojan that permit hackers to spy on political activist and government employees, security researchers had then claimed.
