Daily News and Analysis (DNA) is an Indian daily English newspaper published from Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Jaipur and Bangalore in India.

We found that one of the pages from this e-newspaper site was infected with malicious script.
Here is the screenshot of that page:



The malicious script tag had been inserted in plain text as can be seen in this screenshot of page
source:



The malicious script tag directs the victim’s browser to ‘hxxp://vcvsta.com/ur.php’. This page then redirects the user to another malicious site (‘hxxp://www4.to-gysave.byinter.net,), which will again redirect victim to random sites hosting fake antivirus campaigns.



Quick Heal Successfully blocks the malicious url and protect the users.
