MySpace Pages Rigged with Bad Script

Trend Micro was recently alerted to a possible malware detection triggered when visiting MySpace Web pages. According to reports, certain MySpace pages are being detected as Possible_HiFrm.

Possible_HiFrm is a heuristic detection noted for being effective in detecting malicious iframes and redirects pointing to most of the old and some of the recent Web threats. Possible_Hifrm is Trend Micro’s aggressive pattern used to detect characteristics common to iframes pointing to malicious web sites.


Reports of recent Web site compromises accomplished through iframes include the high-profile SEO attacks, Wired.com and History.com search engine attacks, the mass compromise of various sites in China, Taiwan, etc., and other Asian sites injected with nasty code, most of which have been summarized in Total Recall: The Month of Mass Compromises.
