A tangled web...

The moment of infection, and the circumstances that lead to the introduction of malware to a system, are often not obvious. This short case study examines our observations and investigations into a particular example that illustrates a fairly typical method of compromise that is played out countless times each day​ all over the web.

A couple of days ago, our attention was drawn to a website that appeared to use the Microsoft brand. We received reports that a website with the word "Microsoft" in big friendly letters at the top of the page, may have been serving malware. We were worried that users may visit the site with confidence and trust its content because it carried our name. So, we took a closer look at this “Microsoft” website.
