Kaspersky Labs reports an attempt to hack its Web server 08 nov 2002

Kaspersky Labs informs users that on the night the 7 November there was a massive attack against the company's Web server. The attack resulted in a group of hackers sending the subscribers of the Kaspersky Labs e-mail newsletter a message containing the recently discovered "Bridex" worm.

"Bridex" is an e-mail aware worm that spreads in e-mail messages and infects computers in two ways:

  • manually, if a user executes the attached file (README.EXE),
  • automatically upon reading the message if the target PC has no Internet Explorer patch installed that thwarts the IFRAME-vulnerability.
Despite Kaspersky Labs not receiving any actual reports of infection caused by this hacker attack we recommend that users under no circumstances open messages having the aforementioned appearance and immediately to delete them.

Unfortunately, hacker attacks have become a part of computer users' every day life. Even the majority of the world's largest governmental and commercial institutions already felt victims to hackers. "During the last few years Kaspersky Labs has grown to become one of the leading virus experts and this status has attracted much attention from hackers resulting in daily attempts to penetrate of defenses, - said Eugene Kaspersky, Head of Anti-Virus Research. - Currently we are conducting an investigation to reveal the sources of this attack and are taking the necessary measures with our security system to ensure that this type of attack will never succeed in the future."
