Was Bangalore Telecom Website Hacked?

It seems Bangalore Telecom website, bangaloretelecom.com was hacked, or atleast there was an attempt to inject malicious script, gumblar.cn (has been blacklisted by Google).

See the screenshot below

Gumblar.cn exploit is usually injected right before the <body> tag and when the script is executed (every time someone visits the infected web page),  another script from “gumblar . cn/rss/” is silently loaded and executed.

Incidentally, 95% of the sites infected by this exploit uses PHP (bangaloretelecom too).
