New Malicious Module Attacks Unnoticed

Online attackers usually exploit webpages by adding malicious scripts to HTML pages or specific code that triggers “drive-by downloads.” Unfortunately, a new attack discovered last Friday called Apmod not only infects webpages but infects the web server itself. When a web server gets infected, each user that requests a web page from the infected server is a victim. Although this new attack is not yet widespread, it has the potential to be, it targets popular Apache Web Servers that run on both Windows and Linux. Apache Web Servers currently host about 204 million websites.
