Hacked GOP Site Infects Visitors with Malware

Even though we try to steer clear when it come to politics, it is kind of crazy that any major organization could have their site hacked to hand out malware and no one noticed. This is really starting to become a nasty trend.

A Republican Party Web site has been hacked, and for some time it has been spreading a variation of the long-running Storm Trojan horse to vulnerable visitors, a security researcher said Friday.
