Going by the details shared by iSight Partners and Invincea on Tuesday, Chinese hackers who infected the Forbes. com website had inserted malware into the website’s ‘Thought of the Day’ widget which shows up whenever visitors access any page on the site. The cybersecurity firms said that the malware installed by the hackers automatically attacked visitors by exploiting security vulnerabilities in Microsoft’s Internet Explorer browser and Adobe Systems’ Flash software.
