I was looking at a website of a fairly well known designer. The site was extremely simple - it's just a big auto play flash slide show of the designer's work, and their name and address on top of the slideshow.
I tried clicking around, but there was nothing to click on the site. It just plays the slideshow, and has contact information.
Just for fun I looked at the source code for the page--
The top part was normal, at least what I would expect for a site with a flash slideshow, but then at the bottom there was all these links for spam sites.
(Please see screen shot
So, why is this strange code there? Is it intentional? If not, how was it malaciously inserted? And what does it even do? As far as I can tell, you could never click on any of these links from the site itself.
Finally, if it is a hack, how do you fix or prevent this kind of attack?
