Gumblar" Computer Virus A Growing Threat

Experts Say Web Site Compromise Attack Spreading To New Computers, Already Worse Than Conficker

"The Web site compromise attack known as Gumblar has added new domain names that are downloading malware onto unsuspecting computers, stealing FTP credentials to compromise more sites, and tampering with Web traffic, a security firm said on Thursday.

The Gumblar attack started in March with Web sites being compromised and attack code hidden on them. Originally, the malware downloaded onto computers accessing those sites came from the domain, a Chinese domain associated with Russian and Latvian IP addresses that were delivering code from servers in the U.K."
