Spin.com redirects to Rig Exploit Kit, infects users with malware

2014/11/04

SC Magazine - (International) Symantec researchers stated November 4 that the music news Web site Spin.com was redirecting users to a page hosting the Rig Exploit Kit October 27 and that the issue has been closed. The researchers were unsure of how the compromise occurred but found that the attackers injected an iFrame into the site in order to redirect visitors.
