BT official website take the Phish

by on17 June 2014

Flagged as being evil

The official BT Group website ( 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 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 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.
