The commemoration of the anniversary of the Italian Job, information theft and several attacks on sites Asians were some of the security threats detected by Trend Micro during last May.
After a year since the famous Italian Job attack, and in an apparent attempt to celebrate his birthday, a similar attack has been committing some 90 sites Italians, all with a common server in Italy, the same one that gave rise to last year’s actions. TrendLabs laboratories detected two formats in this threat: one through a script integrated in the message, which redirects to a certain malicious URL, and another through an iFrame and the same script.
Attacks on 19 May followed sites in Chinese, in a deliberate action against China, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong. Search results on Google at the time of the attack showed that 327,000 pages contained the script malicious, Trend Micro said in a statement.
On May 22nd, Trend Micro reports the malicious code contamination of several sites in Japan, including a popular download music and a record company.
