Submission + - MySpace Hacked Using Simple HTML Exploit ( 1

babooo404 writes: It appears a new hack and exploit has appeared on MySpace — Alicia Keys profile is affected along with a variety of others to-date. The hack and exploit is pretty simple but very "deadly". Basically a user puts a link to the infected ste with just a simple href tag (no script tag) using some css to position the element anywhere that an element doesn't already live. So if you mis-click, you get sent to the infected site and it prompts you to install a codec to listen to Alicia's music. Of course it's not a codec, it's some sort of virus. Roger Thompson from Exploit Prevention Labs found the exploit.
