TrendLabs Malware Blog reports, that whitehouse.org, the “officious” parody site of current U.S. White House administration, and all the colorful punditry that accompanies it is compromised and serving malware.

According to Trend Micro Advanced Threats Researcher David Sancho, whitehouse.org has been compromised to harbor some malicious, obfuscated JavaScript code which “background downloads” code to unsuspecting visitors of the site, where a malicious file is downloaded (which is detected by Trend Micro as TROJ_DELF.GKP ).

Of course, the official White House Web site is whitehouse.gov, and although it has been reported that some people believe whitehouse.org is the real deal, even those looking for this site specifically should be forewarned.
