JB Hi-Fi’s website was redirecting customers to malicious web pages over the
weekend in a cyber attack that appears to have affected several other Australian
websites in the lead-up to Christmas.
The exact details of the attack are not yet clear as the retailer has refused
to comment but users first started reporting problems on Friday night.
Visitors to jbhifi.com.au reported being automatically redirected to Chinese
websites carrying malware. Similar issues affected JB Hi-Fi’s New Zealand
website, which is hosted on the same server.
