Cases of hacked web pages have been the routine reports across the world. But now hacking activity has reached the peak and in the last few weeks the survey reads about 5,00,000 web pages attacked by the hackers. It is surprising to see that the hacked pages were originally from the genuine websites including those that belong to the United Nations. It has been said that this widespread attacks could have been triggered by a blemish in the Microsoft’s web server software. It seems that this condition have been reported to the Microsoft’s engineers. Numerous web sites that have been attacked by the attackers can compromise visitors by downloading malware from a hosting server. What happens next is the downloading process of the strike attack kit to the visitor’s PC. This downloaded file hijacks the system. Microsoft has already issued a security advisory on the reported susceptibility. It has not been conformed whether these attacks are related to those informed previously.
