Myspace.com hacked

myspace.com is a very popular community site where people can post information about themselves and create a network of friends with other members on the site. Earlier this week, someone hacked the site by injecting code into a profile that will make a HTTP request in the background when someone views the profile. The HTTP request is written to add the hacker’s profile as the Hero to the viewing member’s profile. Each newly added Hero also contains the script to do the same essentially creating a worm on the site. Of course, it grew exponentially as the hacker realized later in a posting and it quickly brought down the site.
