The companies, iSight Partners and Invincea, said hackers who appear to be linked to China had reprogrammed Forbes’ “Thought of the Day” widget to send malicious computer code to readers’ computers.
The site appears to have been compromised from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1, the firms said. They said they did not know how many Internet users may have been affected.
I assumed that this Forbes feature was merely very irritating. Little did I know.
