Linux servers targeted by iFrame attack

ESET warned Zeus trojan is attempting to infect Linux machines through iFrame attacks. The malware can automatically hijack websites hosted on compromised servers to attack web surfers with drive-by-downloads. It targets machines running 64-bit GNU/Linux and a web server, and acts like a rootkit by hiding itself from admins. When a user visits a site hosted on a compromised system will be directed via HTML iFrame to malicious site thus infecting user's machine. Details of the attack first surfaced in a post to the Full Disclosure mailing list.
