Unresolved Compromised Fox Sports Host Heading Into Third Week

Written by

eSoft first detected a compromise on the Fox Sports website two weeks ago and as of today, at least one Fox Sports host continues to contain automatic links to a multitude of dangerous exploits.  Even with media coverage and direct emails, this compromised host has not be taken offline or cleaned.  The threats being hosted have rotated with the most recent threats being remote script links to ackworld.com and nt002.cn.

akcworld.com has been hosting a multitude of Gumblar exploited pages that are leading to dangerous trojans.


nt002.cn has been hosting a variety of exploits, most recently targeting the Microsoft Video Control ActiveX vulnerabilities.

We hope that with further attention and pressure, the Fox Sports administrators will address this problem before another week passes.
