Kaspersky Lab's Malaysian Web Site Hacked

Jeremy Kirk writes on PC World:

Russian security company Kaspersky Lab's Web site for Malaysia was defaced on Saturday along with one of its online shopping sites, according to Zone-H, an organization that documents such attacks.

The attacker, nicknamed "m0sted," wrote that the site was compromised through SQL injection, wrote Roberto Preatoni on a Zone-H posting.

The attack involves inputting code into a form on a Web page in an attempt to get the back-end database to respond. It can enable the hacker to gain control over the Web site.

Kaspersky has since locked down the site, which is apparently running Microsoft's Internet Information Services Web server. The site is no longer open to the public and requires a user name and password for access.
