Geek.com, a technology, software and gadget news site that was founded in 1996, is just the latest reputable site to be found serving exploit kits – a kind of Swiss Army Knife of Web attacks that allows hackers to customize attacks to the particular software a visitor is using. Sports site Goal.com and even some BBC sites were found dispensing malware to their site’s visitors after being hacked in a similar fashion earlier this year. As poor coding procedures, responsible for browser-based attacks like these, persist, drive-by downloads will continue to run rampant.
