BT official website take the Phish

Written by Nick Farrell

Flagged as being evil

The official BT Group website (http://www.btplc.com) is being flagged by a number of Internet security checks and Anti-Virus firms because it has been infected by Phishing Malware.

ISP review noticed the problem when it attempted to load the btplc.com website on several computers protected by ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus software.

A few quick checks around the Internet reveal that some but not all other anti-virus vendors had either made a similar block or noted a related event on the btplc.com website. AVG’s free anti-virus software hasn’t detected anything but others like ESET’s NOD32 and Sucuri . The hack can result in someone taking over your computer remotely..

The site appeared to be infected by the MW:ANOMALY:SP8 malware virus, which has been around for a while. This makes the hack especially embarrassing for BT which is supposed to have a handle on these sorts of things. Still it could be worse, it could be a security company which had been infected by an ancient virus.
