Forbes released a blog post about an attack targeting forbes.com visitors back in November. While I visited the Blog and found that “Thought of the Day” pretty useless (and one more click before seeing the content), it’s kind of ironical that it was in Flash once (doesn’t seem to be the case anymore) and it got hacked. As the blog post includes technical details, it is read worthy.
The hackers tinkered with the Adobe Flash widget that delivers the Thought of the Day page that visitors to Forbes.com are taken to when they visit the site. – Forbes
