MySQL Website Hacked

MySQL Website Hacked

The website MySQL.com has been hacked and is now being used to target users with malware. At present, visitors to the sit are hit with a Java script injection attack which in turn starts a chain of events leading to the sneaky installation of malware on the user's machine. And all this happens by just typing in the url in your browser. No download of the relational database managing software is necessary to compromise your computer.

For now the exact identity of the culprit is unknown but a Russian hacker, offering to sell root access to MySQL.com for US$3000, is suspected.
