Websense Security Labs™ ThreatSeeker™ Network has detected that Torrentreactor, one of the oldest and most reliable torrent search engines on the Web, has been compromised and injected with malicious code. The site has been injected with an IFrame leading to a site laden with exploits. The exploits on the payload site include Internet Explorer (MDAC) and Microsoft Office Snapshot Viewer, as well as Adobe Acrobat Reader and Adobe Shockwave.

If the user's browser is successfully exploited, a malicious file is downloaded and run from the exploit site. The malicious file has an extremely low AV detection rate.
