President Obama's Web 2.0 Campaign Hijacked

Congratulations Mr. President, your Web 2.0 campaign to be the "hip" president has just been hijacked.  In an interesting news article published originally on, someone has decided to use the President's popularity to hijack his potential, and unsuspecting, users and drump malware on their machines.

 I won't go into details, you can read it all here, but  the moral is simple... I've been telling you folks that hackers don't just want your databases and credit card data... they want your CLICKS too.  The more popular your site is, the harder someone will try and break it (silently) to inject things like adware/malware for their own purposes... which by now should be obvious - make money.

 Protect your sites...  and your users.
