WikiLeaks rivela Cherry Blossom, il malware della Cia per compromettere i router
Sono operativi che conducono missioni in tutto il mondo con licenza di uccidere, supportati anche da cyber armi create nei loro laboratori, ma tra killer e nerd, sembrano avere anche slanci romantici, tanto da chiamare uno dei loro programmi Cherry Blossom, ovvero fior di ciliegio. Cherry Blossom, in realtà, di poetico e gentile ha ben poco: è un micidiale programma segreto messo a punto dalla Cia nel 2004, ma che è andato avanti almeno fino al 2012 e non è escluso che sia ancora in corso, considerato quanto longevo e ambizioso.

Anatomy of a Theme Malware » Otto on WordPress
As I’ve gotten involved with helping the WordPress.org theme review team, I’ve seen some strange things. One of the stranger ones was a theme virus that actually propagated from one theme to all others in a WordPress installation. That one was awfully clever, but it ultimately didn’t really do anything but propagate and generally be a pain in the ass. However, today, @chip_bennett discovered that one of his themes had been copied and was being redistributed by a site called top-themes.com. It had malware inserted into it that is of a much more malicious and spammy nature. Further investigation reveals that ALL of the themes on that site contain basically the same code. This code is not actually “viral”, but it’s definitely malware and it’s worth investigating to see some of the ways people try to hide their spam. So today, I’m going to dissect it and serve it up on a platter for everybody to see.
