Banking on Security
by Marianna Schmudlach / August 31, 2007 8:12 AM PDT

31 August 2007 11:23 GMT

Overnight, news on the wires has indicated that a major bank has had its website compromised by hackers. We wouldn?t normally ?name and shame? the site that has been hit, but as others have already named Bank of India as the victim it seems silly now not to.

The Bank of India website now appears to be clean. Although it is not clear how the site was compromised we do know what it was compromised with. There were several malicious Iframes on the site. We are currently in the process of updating our Mal/Iframe-F detection for this specific threat. However, WS1000 appliance customers will be pleased to know that the URLs referenced by the malicious webpages were blocked by Sophos over 14 days ago.
