Submission + - Washington media websites hit by cyber attacks (computing.co.uk)

Bosolaa writes: Several media outlets in the Washington DC area have had their websites hacked and used to spread malware.

WTOP, the largest radio station in the region, and Federal News Radio, along with the website of technology blogger John Dvorak were all infected by a waterhole attack. A waterhole attack is when a popular website is covertly injected with malware, and then goes on to infect users who visit it.
