Popular German wesite dwdl.de hacked, serving malware via 94.142.140.222

Popular German media website dwdl.de has been hacked and is serving up malware, according to this URLquery report.

URLquery's IDS function detects what looks like the RIG Exploit kit:


The exploit is in injected code pointing to a server at 94.142.140.222 (Marosnet Telecommunication Company, Russia) which in the example is using filter.michiganbeerhops.com which is a hijacked GoDaddy domain.

The exploit only appears to work if the site is accessed via a search engine, which looks like a classic .htaccess hack. URLquery's script relationship chart shows this in action:




VirusTotal gives an overview of other malicious domains on this server. It indicates that the following domains have been hijacked and malicious subdomains set up:

Thanks for your report. We've cleaned up our htaccess-file, so the problem should not appear any more

Excellent, thank you :) I suspect many other sites will have been hit in the same way..

@Uwe.. although you need to address whatever the actually security flaw is too. Nobody external should be able to access the .htaccess file.
