Superbowl Exploits


Ryan Naraine reports that the Superbowl XLI site was hacked and seeded with exploits that will install a keylogger and backdoor that give the crooks access to the compromised machine.

This is doubling interesting to me since Ross Jardine and I did the first two Superbowl sites on the Web for Superbowls XXIX and XXX. We even owned the domain name superbowl.com at one point. For Superbowl XXIX (1995) we ran a contest and gave away Superbowl merchandise each day with a grand prize of two Superbowl tickets. In 1994, that was a great way to build traffic and put iMall.com on the map.
