Super Bowl Virus Spreads
Bowl Site Hit First
Initially, the exploit appeared isolated to Web sites related to U.S. football, as hackers tried to capitalize on the surge of traffic to sites concerning the Super Bowl sporting event, which was played on Sunday. The site of the Miami Dolphins team, and another site for its stadium, were hacked, although they were eventually cleaned up.
Security company Websense reported the problem on the stadium site on Friday. Websense recommended users stay away from the affected sites until they had been cleaned up.
