New malware attack infecting Web sites
Somewhere around 40,000 Web sites have apparently been infected with code that redirects visitors to sites hosting malware, according to a security firm.
Security firm Websense has put out an advisory warning Web site owners about malicious code that redirects surfers to seemingly safe sites.
It's not clear how the sites were compromised, but Computerworld reported the redirect sites are being hosted in the Ukraine, implying that the Russian Business Network is behind the threat.
This is a separate scam from thethat made the rounds last week, according to Websense.
