SQL Injection Attack Warning

Well, that’s not particularly unusual in itself, except that it’s been flagged by the Internet Storm Center¬†as (a) happening right now and (b) escalating somewhat dramatically: in fact, it appears to resemble the lizamoon attack which was reported as affecting around a million sites earlier in the year.

According to Mark Hofman, if you’re in a position to block the site referenced in the injection string for your client machines, that¬†should prevent them being infected for the present. But if you are responsible for protecting your site against stuff like this, I’d strongly recommend that you read the whole diary entry, including the comments.

Hat tip to Conny Javerdal for bringing this to our attention on the AVIEN list.
