Embassy of Brazil in India Site Compromise


Threat Type: Malicious Web Site / Malicious Code

Websense® Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker™ Network has discovered that the official Web site of the Brazil Embassy in India has been compromised and is infecting site visitors with malicious code. The Web site has been injected with obfuscated JavaScript, redirecting users to multiple, fake anti-virus removal software sites. These sites deliver malicious code.

The Embassy’s services include: issuing emergency passports, immigrant and non-immigrant visas; notarization and attestation; cultural exchange; consultant services for commercial ventures; representation of Brazilian citizens in dealings with local authorities; assistance in emergencies; and providing necessary tourist and local information for the needy.
