Speaking of Security...
- While malware updating via public resources is nothing new in itself, the RSA FraudAction Research Lab recently witnessed this hosting method being used to operate a banking Trojan; specifically a variant of the â€œBrazilian Banker family of Trojans. In effect, any website that lets users upload virtually any type of content, and then publishes it in sequential form without line breaks such as those denoted by the HTML tag
for a single-line break can be exploited to store Trojans encrypted configurations. This includes almost any social networking or Web 2.0 platform that enables the almost unrestricted posting of comments, creation of public profiles and the setup of newsgroups.
