Trend Micro Suffers Web Attack

Of the more than 20,000 web pages affected by a massive internet attack which started earlier this week, security vendor Trend Micro's site was among the victims, embarassing as it may be. Infected sites attempt to install password-stealing programs with a special affinity for online video games onto viewers' computers. Mike Sweeny, a Trend Micro spokesman confirmed that the company's site had been hacked Thursday: "A portion of our site -- some pages were attacked," he said. "We took the pages down overnight Tuesday night -- and took corrective action." Although researchers are still puzzled as to how the attacks took place, the use of Microsoft's Active Server Page (ASP) technology seems to be a common trend among infected sites.
