The Science Fiction And Fantasy Writers Of America website was hacked by someone who installed malicious code into its pages. When anyone visited the SFWA site, it would try to launch a Trojan against your browser — which mostly affected older browsers and unpatched machines. The attack was aimed at gaining users' bank-account details and other personal information. SFWA says it's removed the malicious code from its site now. [SF Crows Nest]
