Trading Forex Website Targeted

Nov 28, 2012 | comments

A FOREX trading website called "Trading Forex," located at hxxp:// has been contaminated with a malicious Java applet that is designed to install malware on the systems of visiting surfers. 

FOREX is the foreign exchange market where international currencies are traded, and nowadays, it's used by millions of people around the world. 

The backdoor planted on Trading Forex is written in Visual Basic.Net and requires the Microsoft's .NET framework to be successfully installed and running on a victim's computer. This is an unusual approach.

Hackers intent on distributing malware through compromised websites often use pre-packaged tools, available through underground forums, most notably the widely used Blackhole Exploit kit.
