Indian Website Defacements

Bank of India website got compromised yesterday and was used to host malware/exploits.
If you have visited the website recently and feels that your computer is showing strange behaviour after that, it is most likely that your system got compromised by some malware which was on the site.
Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) have some interesting info about the Indian sites which were defaced last year.

In the year 2006 a total no. of 5211 Indian websites were defaced , on an average of about 14 websites per day.

The Bank website has been cleaned up by their staff and is considered safe to access now.

An analysis of the defacement is available at Mcafee AvertLabs blog at
