Google Informs 20k Websites That They May Be Infected With Malware


Google recently informed 20,000 websites that they may have been infected with a Javascript redirect malware.

According the the search engine/email/social network/cloud music/you get the idea internet giant, the Javascript was injected by third-parties, and is designed to redirect users to malicious sites.

Furthermore, server configuration files may have been compromised, which Google said may mean sites “may be cloaking and showing the malicious content only in certain situations.”

That’s probably not a fun email to receive from Google, but we’re sure the webmaster would rather be informed than remain oblivious.
