An online site in Russia is using an affiliate model to spread malicious code, including back doors, other Trojans, spyware, and adware By Gregg Keizer, TechWeb InformationWeek May 30, 2005 An online business based in Russia is paying Web sites 6 cents for each machine they infect with adware and spyware, according to security researchers who call the practice "awful." IframeDollars.biz says it pays Webmasters to place a one-line exploit on their sites. The code exploits a number of patched Windows and Internet Explorer vulnerabilities, including some that go back as far as 2002. Systems that haven't been updated would be vulnerable to the exploit.
