Five days after it was first discovered, the website of the Super Glue Corporation is still serving visitors with a malicious script, pushing them to sites selling fake security software, security company Avast has revealed.
"This infection seems to be sticking like glue," said a company note on the discovery put out on Wednesday, the first of what will be a long string of glue-themed jokes at the company's expense.
The second notable theme - again not an especially uncommon issue- is the lack of response by the affected company. Yet again, days on, Super Glue seems to be oblivious to the problem thanks to an apparently disorganised chain of reporting between the company and its host.
"Avast Software has informed Super Glue by email and telephone about this malware. However, as is usual with most firms, contact details on their site are designed for customers and not for reporting security issues," read the security alert put out by Avast.
