Jamie Oliver’s website found spreading malware… again

Graham Cluley

Jamie OliverYou won’t need an incredibly good memory to recall that Jamie’s Oliver was found to have been spreading malware recently.

In fact, it’s less than a month since I wrote about how the naked chef’s website had been serving up an exploit kit since early December of last year, and infecting visiting computers with malware.

Well, Jamie Oliver’s website is in a right pickle yet again.

Does Jamie’s IT team not give a fig about computer security? He should be going bananas that his website has once again being compromised, and for at least the last eight days been redirecting to an exploit kit serving up malware.

I’d be pretty cheesed off if I was him – the site’s administrators clearly failed to properly find what the security issue was with the site last time, and appears to have been compromised so easily again.

Fox-IT researcher Maarten van Dantzig tells me that sites used in this particular campaign include oscar-tube.com, jalocamex.pw, kasperloker.pw, glokasyv.pw, and lasokebun.pw.

Jamie, I know you have a lot on your plate, but this is no small potatoes. Secure your website, or find someone worth their salt who can.

  1. serving up, is in a right pickle yet again, give a fig, going bananas, cheesed off, a lot on your plate, but this is no small potatoes, worth their salt…

    I wouldn't have ever thought food is so (ab)used for analogies… and I doubt I'd have thought of all those examples if I were to try. Yet it seems a good time to let it all out ('purge' ?), based on what the subject is. I won't ask what they serve for dessert.

  2. It's worth noting that Jamie's some 40 odd UK restaurants are advertised officially via this website, at: http://www.jamieoliver.com/italian/restaurants

    If the entire network/empire is interconnected and the main domain behind it all has been compromised, it will be interesting to see if this is just the tip of the iceberg.

    I wonder if POS devices a/o data may have been compromised also. How deep does this rabbit hole go?

  3. Who ever said that Brits have a dry sense of humor?
    Between Graham and those over at "the Reg", I always get a chuckle. Thanks.

    One satire I read at "el reg " had me laughing so hard,I nearly blacked out. It was about some woman hired by the company as a consultant. A real she devil.
