Free hosting increasingly used to spread malware

Posted on Friday, July 29 2005 @ 06:36:45 CEST by

Internet security firm Websense warns free hosting services are more and more used by malicious users to store and spread malware. During the first two weeks of this month the firm noticed an alarming increase in keyloggers, Trojan horses and spyware coming from free webspace providers.
Dan Hubbard, senior director of security and technology research at Websense, said more malware was found on free hosting services during the first two weeks of July than in May and June combined.

According to Hubbard, some Web sites being used by malware distributors are disguised as legitimate, while others are online for such a short period of time they are very difficult to trace.
