20,000 sites hit with drive-by attack code

Hackers have broken into more than 20,000 legitimate Web sites to plant malicious code to be used in drive-by malware attacks.

According to a warning fromWebsense Security Labs (click here to read more), the sites have been discovered to be injected with malicious JavaScript, obfuscated code that leads to an active exploit site. The companydiscovered that the active exploit site uses a name similar to the legitimate Google Analytics domain (google-analytics.com) which can easily fool any user trying to access websites while web browsing.

I know this might sound ridiculously scary and NOT fair, but you better be careful and dont be too casual the next time you plan to visit unknown websites.
