Unfortunate hack at tax time
We noticed a couple of Alabama county websites have been hacked, with a Neosploit call out to a website in Germany.
The two websites are...
(The actual exploit server in Germany seems to be 404 at the moment, but you should still be careful)
The second one is more interesting, particularly given the time of year. The front page looks like this ...
Looks pretty innocent, doesn't it? If you're good at html, and you make a point of looking at page source, you might notice something weird at the top of the page ...
but you probably won't, because no one looks at source much anyway. ;-)
If you have a Really Useful Tool (tm) like our Browser Helper Object, you'll probably notice that it's reaching out to a funny looking site ...
We've told the very nice folks at the revenue website, so it should be cleaned up soon. It's just a particularly unfortunate website to be hacked at tax time.
