Snip:
March 13, 2008 (Computerworld)  Antivirus vendor Trend Micro Inc.
confirmed Thursday that "some portions" of its site had been hacked
earlier this week, but hedged when asked if those pages had been
serving up attack code to unsuspecting visitors.

"I can't confirm or deny the details," said Mike Sweeny, a spokesman
for the Tokyo-based security company, on Thursday afternoon. "Some
pages were compromised, but we took those pages down and took
corrective action hours ago." When pressed for more information,
Sweeny would only say that the attack was "under analysis."

But media reports from Japan, and a blog post by a rival, U.K.-based
Sophos Plc, offered more information. The English-language edition of
the Yomiuri Shimbun, one of Japan's largest newspapers, said Trend
Micro's site was hacked around 9:00 p.m. Sunday, Tokyo time (7:00 p.m.
Eastern, on Saturday, in the U.S.).

Trend Micro did not directly infect users with Trojans.
The hackers inserted code that redirected the users to malicious web sites that
installed
the Trojans.
