It seems that the folks at Spectrum Advisory Services Inc., manager of the Marathon Value Portfolio mutual fund (NASDAQ: MVPFX) were victims of malicious hackers who hacked into the third-party host server of the Fund’s website on June 30.

The fund’s website, along with other websites, had malware (malicious software used to disrupt computer operations) planted on the site, according to the firm. Users, who entered the site via a search on Google, immediately received a warning message about the pages of the site that were infected by the malware. Those using browsers, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, were restricted from entering the site; a normal occurrence when these browsers detect a virus or malware.
