That's my understanding of it, what ad network was the metservice using?

It's using openx now but not sure if that was what they were using before or whether they switched in a new system.

I know the software in use was OpenX and seeing they applied an update then I believe it was in house.

freitasm: Folks, on request of MetService I have created this blog post: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/freitasm/7776

Could you please check that the information is correct or closer to what we know, and if there's anything else we can add or change please send me a PM so I can update it?

I guess there will be quite a few readers on that so it would be good to get it as easier as possible for people to follow.

Thanks!


Nice.  Can I suggest dropping a link on NZNog?

freitasm:
DonGould: So far I've read that AVG and MSE aren't stopping it.


Try Norton Power Eraser and let us know: http://security.symantec.com/nbrt/overview.aspx?lcid=1033

 


Thanks FM, now my problem is I don't know if I've actually got an issue any more to even be checking for.  I note two MSE updates in the past 24 hours.

But MSE is a bit strange.  I did a full scan a month back and it picked up a virus in an old back up.  I did a scan yesterday and it picked up the same virus in a slightly different part of the old back up.  So I'm left wondering why MSE didn't pick up the same issue in both locations the first time?

freitasm: Yes, not a problem.


Sorry, does that mean you're going to or you'd like me to?

Also should we contact the http://www.auscert.org.au people directly and ask them for comment?  They post updates on issues on AuNOG but not NZNog I don't think.

You do it please.

No need to contact auscert I think.

I've contacted Microsoft New Zealand for comments on MSE working/not working in this case. Waiting for a reply.

Hi guys - we've had an enquiry regarding what implications this may have to iPads; I'm thinking no Java, no problems? Would be great to hear what you think - we really appreciate you all wading in on this issue!

Thanks

Hello Jacqui. I wouldn't expect this to be of any consequence on iPad, iPhones and other smartphone mobile platforms.

So this was not an IE-specific expoit, but would have affected all browsers with Java installed?

To see what it does I fed it some fake credit card numbers that pass validation.

When you try and pay, it connects to 91.226.212.37 and then gets redirected to https://secure.fastbillingonline.com/payment/?... to take the credit card details.

I won't publish the whois results of the IP here, but it does resolve to the Ukraine; the billing site has a US registrant.
