“A number of cyber attacks took place against human rights groups this week; including Armorize’s discovery of a variant of a “drive-by-download” attack on Amnesty International’s Web site. As this Armorize blogpost explains, “A drive-by download attack refers to the process of a user visiting an infected page and subsequently gets installed with malware, without his/her knowledge and without having him/her to click on or to agree to anything.” In the case of this week’s attack on Amnesty International, a “drive-by-cache attack” (term dubbed by Amorize) was launched.”
