The English website of the Russian newspaper Pravda has been hacked, reported by F-Secure. On first glance at the site there are no visible changes done by the hack however the page silently loads a exploit script that tries to infect the user by Java vulnerabilities.

If the hack is successful on the user PC then the computer allows a bot to give remote access to that computer.

Operations Director, Ian Chilvers said, "Hacks like this are dangerous because users know the website and trust the site and probably visit the site daily for the news, so it would be easy for a end user PC to get infected.".
