According to unconfirmed reports MSI.com has recently been hacked and can distribute Malware code. The report states that cyber-criminals have hacked MSI.com and have altered it to distribute malware that is hosted by Kristians1(dot)net and some other shady websites. The writer of the report, Conrad Longmore of Dynamoo’s Blog, reports that he notified MSI of such an exploit but they have not responded and the malware still remains in place.
Google’s safe browsing report of MSI.com suggests that 23 exploits including 2 Trojans have been hosted on MSI.com from 5 domains. Google’s safe browsing report is as follows (we have removed all hyperlinks so please do not attempt to visit any of these websites or you may put your computer’s safety at risk):

This isn’t the first time MSI has let security drop and back in May MSI Taiwan had 50,000 user account details stolen and its site was defaced.

“Our service has been compromised. Our webteam are currently working on it as we speak.”
