Default Darkleech infects scores of Apache servers

From http://h-online.com/-1834311

For at least nine months, the Darkleech malware is believed to have injected invisible iFrames that link to malicious web pages into thousands of web sites. The malware uses an Apache web server module to add the iFrames, although no credible attack vector has been identified as the route for the malicious module installation. Darkleech is also very careful when selecting victims to have the iFrames injected into, running a blacklist of users it won't send dangerous content to. Infected servers have been found in 48 countries, but are mostly concentrated on sites in the US, the UK and Germany.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
