Previously, we often warn people from visiting unknown/suspicious websites as they could contain malicious content. But nowadays, even visiting known websites, you could be affected. It was reported that the India Times website contains hundreds of malicious files that could infected those visit the website.
Legitimate websites containing malicious content is not something new as it has already happened a couple of times. Web administrators must be prudent to ensure their websites are properly secure. Hackers are now clever enough not to deface your websites to alert you but rather plant malicious content on them and wait for victims. Periodically running a vulnerability scan on your web systems is necessary to avoid known holes. Let us know if you have other good tips for the web admin.

  2. I think Browser like mozilla and chrome detect if the site is a attacking site. Which helps us to stop viewing the site. This is for the users. For admins they ought to know tricks to keep their files secure as possible as not leaving the chmod of files open using high security password and encryption(SSL).

  7. I’ve seen virus’ trick users into clicking cancel or close to install, or install unattended. I’ve also seen a rash of new viruses originating from ads and games on Facebook, and the porn alternatives to youtube. I’m currently recommending Microsoft’s Security Essentials for free basic anti-virus protection, and Trend Micro for premium subscription based security suites.

  8. Injecting virus and trojans on legitimate websites are now the trend for cyber criminals activity. My site has been injection with Trojan shell before without me knowing it, until Google put the virus warning alerts on its search result of my site then i notice something has been wrong.

    Nowadays you can search on Google and find this tag “This site may harm your computer” on its search result. Something must be wrong with the site.
