A stadium spokesman said the Web site was cleaned and back to normal within hours of the discovery.
The type of malicious software used in the attack is easy to detect and easy to protect against, the security experts said. It was unclear how many computers may have been affected.
The attack involved a common type of Trojan horse program targeting Windows computers without the latest security patches from Microsoft Corp.
The program can give hackers full access to compromised computers through two vulnerabilities in Windows PCs, both of which have already been patched by Microsoft, according to Websense.
the FBI is investigating the attack because of the international attention surrounding the Super Bowl, which is expected to draw some 75,000 attendees this Sunday to the stadium in Miami Gardens florida.
