msshamof Security Alert

Posted on Saturday, June 16 @ 12:08:15 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Why does it always happen on Friday night? There's a malicious new javascript out there, and I feel it is my civic duty to inform.

Sharp eyed revolutionaries spotted it when it cropped up in our forums, and we got it quickly under control, but it's spreading like mad across thousands of other forums and blogs.

The javascript, which is hosted at msshamof.com and idfirstc.com, appears to spread by secretly adding code to web forms you fill in, so it can appear on almost any site that allows posting, and is effective on any site that allows html.

Just check out this Google search to see some of the infected sites. Wow.

UPDATE: The malicious code also includes a flash file currently titled "nice.swf". It definitely has a keylogger functionality and your information is being sent to China. Two of the bad-guys' IP addresses are 222.181.87.196 and 221.0.60.216.

We've disabled html in our forums until we can come up with a more elegant fix on Monday. For those who know how to do such things, we recommend changing your hosts file and routing msshamof.com and idfirstc.com to localhost.

Until the inevitable Microsoft and/or Macromedia security patch, we urge you all to be very careful when posting anything to any site. You may be unwittingly posting more than you think.
