An SQL injection attack that began in late November has compromised more than 125,000 web pages, researchers at web security provider ScanSafe, recently acquired by Cisco, said Wednesday in a blog post. The sites have been injected with an IFRAME that loads malicious content from a known malicious domain, 318x.com. A number of other IFRAMEs and code redirections, used for tracking purposes, untimely aim to install the trojan Backdoor.Win32.Buzus.croo on the user's system. The malware generally is used for credit card and other banking-related theft. — AM
