playbill.com hacked

playbill.com covers listings and tickets for theatre events in New York and London. It's a popular site in the US, ranked 3350 according to Alexa.

Unfortunately, the site has been hacked with exploit code for the Java AtomicReferenceArray unsafe typing (CVE-2012-0507) vulnerability (report here), apparently loading malicious components from dezbvu.dyndns-server.com/forum/s1 ( - ClodoCloud / IT House Ltd, Russia).

Remember you keep your Java up to date to avoid this sort of drive-by attack.
