Various Anti-Virus websites are reporting that Hasbro website is hacked and is distributing virus/malware to those who visit. The attacks have been happening on and off throughout the last month and it is recommended to scan your PC with a trusted Anti-Virus software with the latest virus definitions if you have visited Hasbro.
Since Transformers: Age Of Extinction reveals are happening soon, many of you may have been visiting the site to look for latest info to share with your fellow members at TFW2005.
According to Barracuda Labs; who first reported the incident:“A week ago (on Monday, January 20), as well as on January 14, 11, and 10, Hasbro’s website pushed malicious software to visitors’ computers. As with the Cracked.com compromise a week prior, the incident was the result of direct site compromise, and affected users were unlikely to have recognized that their computers were infected. For reference, below is a screenshot of Barracuda Labs’ malicious URL detection environment after a successful attack.
Given the frequency with which Hasbro’s website has recently served drive-by downloads, Barracuda Labs recommends that users refrain from visiting the site until its operators have confirmed it is again safe.”
We are yet to hear the latest update regarding this situation.
