Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver serves up an unpleasant malware surprise
Most web-based threats come from malicious adverts placed on websites (aka malvertising), but Malwarebytes has discovered a well hidden malicious injection on the official website of Jamie Oliver which redirects unsuspecting visitors to an exploit kit.
The compromised site -- www.jamieoliver.com -- is currently ranked 519 in the UK (5,280 in the world), according to Alexa, with around 10 million visitors a month, which makes it a valuable target for hackers.
Once infected, users face search engine hijacks, and the danger of being tricked into downloading malicious software updates.
You can find out more about the discovery on the Malwarebytes Unpacked blog.
