New exploit toolkit not so nice

Share this article:
At least 10,000 websites have been compromised to redirect users to a new exploit toolkit, called “Nice Pack,” according to researchers at Dell SecureWorks. Nice Pack, discovered Wednesday, attempts to take advantage of flaws in users' third-party apps, such as Java and Adobe, to install the "Zero Access Trojan," a rootkit that allows attackers to take control of a victim's machine. Though researchers are still looking into the threat, they have discovered that the JavaScript on compromised sites is nearly identical to the malicious code recently found on MySQL.com, which was infected to redirect users to the Black Hole exploit toolkit.
