google’s blogger platform under attack

after facing a complete, hour-long outage last week, bbc news is reporting that google’s blogger platform and the over 34.5 million sites hosted on it are now under attack,.

the attackers are posting malicious entries on the blogs containing links that take the unwitting reader to a booby-trapped download that affects your pc and allows the attacker to hijack it and mine it for data or use it for more attacks.

Security researcher Alex Eckelberry from Sunbelt Software first noticed the booby-trapped links turning up on Blogger on 27 August.

Now many hundreds of blogs on the site have been updated with a short entry containing the link.
