Wikipedia, outil de Hack ?

les hackers sont partout

A Wikipedia page has been used by hackers in an attempt to spread malicious code. The entry for the MSBlast worm in the German version of the popular online encyclopedia was altered to include false information about a new version of the Lovesan/MSBlast worm, with links to a supposed fix, according to Sophos. The fix was actually a piece of malicious code, the antivirus vendor said in a notice published Friday. It’s not clear how long the vandalized page was live, but the editors of moved quickly to delete the links once they were discovered.

En substance, des petits malins ont modifié une page du wikipedia allemand sur le virus W32.Blaster, en y incluant des liens de fix pour le virus/vers Lovesan/MS Blaster worm. Ce fix était un fait un script peu scrupuleux, voire malicieux. (info de la boite d’antivirus Sophos.)
Mais jusqu’où s’arreteront-ils ?
