PRAGUE, Czech Republic, August 10, 2011 – The website of Super Glue Corporation (supergluecorp.com) makers of the world-famous adhesive, has been infected with malware. And after five days, this infection seems to be sticking like glue.
The malware was first reported to the AVAST Virus Lab through the CommunityIQ system of sensors. After receiving the initial report on August 5, 20.53 CET, the Lab confirmed the infection and flagged the site to avast! users.
“This last address seems to be the page that contained the payload - and it is turned off for now. By using a combination of redirectors, it’s statistically difficult to uncover the precise payload,” she added. “The likely candidate is some sort of fake antivirus.”
NOTE: AVAST Software informed Super Glue Corp. by email and telephone about this malware. They removed the Trojan later that day and sent AVAST a thank you note.
