Note:Maisto[.]com is now in maintenance mode to fix the issue.

The website of popular American brand Maisto, known for miniature and radio-controlled toy vehicles, was caught pushing the Angler exploit kit eventually leading to ransomware infections.

According to website security company Sucuri, maisto[.]com is running on a Microsoft IIS server and showing an outdated version of the Joomla Content Management System, therefore exposing itself to automated hacks.
