I using Mcafee Total protection and I am sure my computer is safe. However I have want to ask Mcafee.
Recently on Feb 14th my blog web site got hacked. It is my own web site.
There were few number of web site in India it got hacked because of some black hackers from other country hacking only .in web site.
The title of the page was mentioned as "-= [3xp1r3-61 3xp1r3 Cyber Army] =-'
When I view the web page it was shown some weired thing. Lucky it only created a page and did not steal or corrupt data. I restored backup of the page through my web host provider.
Now browsing this kind of hacked page. Does it get infected any way on visitors computer or my computer?
I did not get any infected notification. Mcafee program was working as usual.
Now since it was hacked by black hackers, is it possible a visitor's computer can be compromised?
I am sorry I don't have screen shot but I have saved web page. If required I can attach it later.
Sorry I had to explain more.
Thank you in advance,

I'll look into this as soon as I can. At the moment you're number 4 in the queue, sorry about that but it's a bit busy right now.
Yes it is possible to infect a computer. Most of the times it happens and sometimes it also possible that even though you have antivirus in your system,it won't detect it because this are new threats but again possibility remains
Yes, it is very possible. There are currently many exploits in the Metasploit Framework (msfgui/msfconsole/armitage etc...) that will make a special site and the attacker will send you a link to it; once you visit this site it will infect your computer.
Which is depends upon the Motivation of hackers we exactly dont know for what purpose our website got hacked for exaple the hackers may hack our sites by siply post thier contents and harm the users that your site is in their control else the hackers may hack the websites to give the burdens to the users by replicate their infection to the visitors PC's but the answer is yes its possible the pc may get infection wen we visit the hacked and harmfull sites...Message was edited by: lakshmanans on 3/2/12 12:39:57 AM CST
