NBC websites hacked with malware

(SlashGear) Earlier today, Ronald Prince sent out a tweet stating that NBC.com had been infected with malware and that users should avoid visiting. This prompted others to look into the issue, with HitmanPro and Sucuri both confirming the issue, stating that a trojan and exploit links were present. In light of this, NBC released a simple statement confirming the problem while assuring users that their information hadn’t been compromised.

Visting the website in Chrome would prompt it to block access, warning users of malware that could infect their computer. According to the folks over at HitmanPro, NBC’s main domain was serving visitors with the Java and PDF exploits and infecting with the Citadel trojan.
