The Brazilian embassy in India website has been compromised with malicious code.

 

Identified by the Websense Security Labs ThreatSeeker Network, it discovered that official website had been compromised and is infecting site visitors with malicious code.

 

Websense claimed that the website had been injected with an obfuscated JavaScript that redirected users to multiple, fake anti-virus removal software sites, from where malicious code is delivered.

 

The website offers embassy services including issuing emergency passports, immigrant and non-immigrant visas, representation of Brazilian citizens in dealings with local authorities and assistance in emergencies.

 

Websense reported that its Messaging and Web Security customers are protected against these threats.
