A U.S. Republican Party website selling campaign stickers and other political gear is among thousands of websites infected with a credit-card stealing virus that sent data to a server in Russia, according to a Dutch security researcher.A page on the National Republican Senatorial Committee's website selling stickers, T-shirts and baseball caps was infected with a hard-to-detect virus that collected all information entered on orders, including buyers' names and addresses, credit card numbers and merchandise ordered, according to the researcher, Willem de Groot.The NRSC took down the website on Thursday and acknowledged that it had been targeted by a "skimming operation".Researcher De Groot documented the attack in a video on his blog, in which he demonstrates that entering an order on the NRSC site causes the malware to send its details to a server in Russia.
