Trojan on Dolphin Stadium Site

I just caught the article on Digg about a trojan being on the Dolphin Stadium website. Websense was the one with the warning on their site. Apparently a bit of javascript code had been dropped into the header of the site and was downloading a bit of malware – a keylogger/backdoor. You can read either of the above articles for more details.

This just goes to show that folks really need to keep their browsers (and web servers) updated with the most recent patches. Often you will hear the excuse from the user side that they don’t go to the “bad” parts of the Internet. But this is a common tactic – infecting either the main page of a mainstream site or often times easier, exploiting the banner ad system to get harmful content to run. So just a heads up that even if you stick to mainstream sites keep you browsers patched and seriously consider switching to an alternative browser such as Firefox.
