According to the company, Google has been hacked 7000 Magento sites blocked. Magento is a popular open source content management system for web shops. Anti-malware company Malwarebytes reports that the attackers script on the hacked websites sites visitors unnoticed to a page with the Neutrino-exploitkit.
