Celebrity cook Nigella Lawson has had her website hacked by the 
increasingly dangerous SQL injection attacks.

An attacker has used a Structured Query Language (SQL) attack to add 
code to her website. This code then links Nigella website users to 
malware hosted on another website.

The attack has been created using the Asprox toolkit, widely distributed 
by hackers.

Researchers from security software firm ScanSafe first detected the 
attack on 14 July. Anyone who has visited the Nigella site could 
potentially have an infected computer, said ScanSafe.
