DNA e-newspaper website infected with fake antivirus


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

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