Poisoned websites attack visitors

Thousands of small web shops have been unwittingly poisoned with malicious code that infects PC users who visit.

Security experts said the sophisticated attack had succeeded on a larger scale than many other similar attacks.

Once installed on a Windows machine the malicious code steals passwords, browser data as well as login names for bank accounts and online games.

The attack is proving hard to defend against for both sites being hit and PC users who are caught out.
