+ - OpenX Vulnerability leaves sites open to attack->

Submitted by bossanovalithium
bossanovalithium (1396323) writes "An OpenX vulnerability is leaving legitimate and popular websites wide open to malware attacks — by getting into the nuts and bolts and tinkering with the advertising.

Tucows, the popular download site, confirmed that it's part of an OpenX server vulnerability. "We detected the intrusion, patched the vulnerability in OpenX and resolved the issue quickly," said general manager Andy Walker.

The code is being loaded in from external domains. When planted on a website it hosts a downloadable exploit from advertising servers which will put the Bredolab trojan onto a computer."

uninformed? (I didn't watch it, but I heard about it (or not), so that makes me qualified to have an opinion. I heard it sucked, therefore I think it sucks too! baaa.)

uneducated? (WTF? I don't get this mythologee philosophic claptrap. WTF is a parable? Something in math?! Two male bovines? I don't get it! Therefore it is dumb. qed.)

inattentive? (WTF? It took 6 YEARS? If it isn't 140 chars. or 2 minutes on YouTube I don't have time! Text me wut is al abt,k thx!)

unimaginative? (I want it ALL EXPLAINED dammit! There better be a machine that turns a dude into smoke or something, because *that* I could understand!)
