Trend Micro CTO puts record straight
Recent hacking attack did not endanger internet surfers, CTO claims
A recent hacking attack that affected Trend Micro’s website did not endanger internet surfers and was handled correctly, the company’s CTO claimed today.
“On the 12th of March, we discovered that around 25 web pages had been infiltrated; these pages were English and Japanese pages concerned with malware, including our Virus Enclopedia. When this infiltration was discovered, by our own monitoring tools, we shut down the site for approximately nine hours in order to run a forensic analysis and do a permanent fix,” Genes said.
“No site is completely immune from compromise,” Genes concluded.
