Submission + - Rampant Apache attack hits visitors with malware

recoiledsnake writes: A campaign that forces sites running the Apache Web server to install highly malicious software on visitor's PCs has compromised more than 40,000 Web addresses in the past nine months, 15,000 of them in the month of May alone. Darkleech, which also goes by the name Linux/Charpoy, is able to tailor exploits to the geographic region of the infected victim as well. esearchers in recent months have uncovered a third piece of malware that causes websites to expose visitors to attacks. Known as Linux/Cdorked, it targets sites running the Apache, nginx, and Lighttpd Web servers and, as of May, had exposed almost 100,000 end-users running Eset software alone to attack.
