Oh. Good. Grief.

Chalk this up to my ignoring the SuperBowl (except for the Frito Lay commercials) … but I just found out that the Dolphin’s website — the SuperBowl host site — was hacked last week. (tip, tip) "The attackers are exploiting flaws patched in Microsoft’s MS06-014 and MS07-004 bulletins." Hello??

Who found it? External security guys, of course.

From Online Security Authority: "The file downloaded in the attack is a keystroke logger and a remote control tool, also called a backdoor, Websense said. Attackers get full access to the compromised PC."

The website runs MSIIS and Windows 2000, according to Netcraft.

Do people even think about crisis planning/prevention anymore?
