Jamie Oliver's Website Hacked Again; Distributes Malware

Jamie Oliver's Website Hacked Again; Spreads Malware

Last month, we have reported that the Jamie Oliver's website was hacked and distributed malwares to the visitors. Sadly, Jamie Oliver's website is hacked again and drops digitally signed malware.

Security firm Fox IT and Malwarebytes have independently identified a malicious code in the main HTML page of Jamie Oliver's official website. Malwarebytes Senior security researcher Jérôme Segura inspected the malicious scripts and said, "This is basically the same structure as we observed in the previous hack, which leads us to believe this is the same infection that was not completely removed or perhaps that a vulnerability with the server software or Content Management System (CMS) still exists."

The script also redirects to the Fiesta exploit kit to compromise victim's computer system. The users of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit are completely protected from this threat. 

Here is the Virus Total scan report :

Fox IT said, "We first saw JamieOliver.com redirecting to the exploit kit as early as Thursday March 5, which means that the website has been redirecting for at least eight days."

Jamie Oliver's spokesperson said in an email, "We have taken measures to clear the offending code and the site is now safe to visit. We are now running a forensic audit to find out more information."
