Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr got together for a rare live performance, and according to reports it would seem the bad guys thought that a spot of media friendly Beatle-mania presented the ideal time to target McCartney's website.
"Once your computer is infected with a rootkit, none of your personal information is safe" Spencer Parker, director of product management at ScanSafe says, adding "This site will have been an extremely attractive target for cyber criminals given the level of attention it will be receiving at the moment. Users should be aware that the majority of malware distribution is now occurring through mass compromise of legitimate and reputable websites."
Thankfully, I understand that the people behind the McCartney website reacted extremely quickly to fix the problem. Still, I bet that was a hard day's night...
