I received a very strange pop-up when my Ladbrokes poker client was open a while ago...I bet this site is full of viruses...

I got it too! It started yesterday.

I you go to the site (Do not do this if you use IE) it says you have won 10.000$ , but you have to enter your visa card details including the secret number:what:

The site does look somewhat as an official Ladbrokes site, however any
sane person should realize it is fake since they would never ask for visa carddetails (as Ladbrokes allready have them) and especially not your secret visa number. This does not mean that some will not still enter all the information. I had expected Ladbrokes to instantly warn everyone about the site, but it has not happened yet.

Maybe they target the client's (by trying random IP's) so it is not really comming from the server.

If you add /logs to the url, you can see the access log for the server. It has a LOT of traffic actually.
It was 5MB last night it is already 2MB again now.

They must be reading forums, as it's forbidden to access /logs now :)

[edit]Congrats to ladbrokes, seems the site is shutdown :D

Yeah, but it isn't the first time this happened...
Last time the pop-ups had a different URL to go to and claimed that an employee had stolen 30million pounds... lol

You have to remember, it's the website itself that's getting hacked, _not_ the casino software...

Very entertaining and clever to launch the popup from within the site. I hope no one fell for it though.
