New Mobile Malware Spotted in the Wild, Hundreds of Users Affected

November 09, 2017
We've recently, intercepted, a currently, circulating, malicious, spam, campaign, affecting, hundreds, of users, globally, potentially, exposing, the, confidentiality, availability, and, integrity, of, their, devices, to, a, multi-tude, of, malicious, software. Largely, relying, on, a, multi-tude, of social engineering, vectors, the, cybercriminals, behind, the, campaign, have, managed, to, successfully, impersonate, Adobe Flash Player, users, into, thinking, that, they're, visiting, a, legitimate, Web
site, on, their, way, to, infect, their, devices, relying, on, bogus "Please update Flash on your device", messages.

Over, the, last, couple, of, years, we've, been, monitoring, an, increase, in rogue Google Play, type, of, Android, applications, capable, rogue online Web sites, tricking, tens, of, thousands, of, users, on, a, daily, basis, into, installation, rogue, applications, largely, relying, on, a, multi-tude, of, social engineering, vectors. Next, to, rogue, online, Web, sites, we've, been, also, actively, monitoring, an, increase, in, compromised, Web sites, serving, malicious, software, potentially, exposing, the, confidentiality, availability, and, integrity, of, their, devices, to, a, multi-tude, of, malicious, software. We've, been, also, busy, monitoring, an, increase, in, ongoing, monetizing, of, hijacked, traffic, type, of, underground, market, traffic, exchanges, with, more, cybercriminals, successfully, monetizing, the, hijacked, traffic, while, earning, fraudulent, revenue, in the, process.

In, this, post, we'll, profile, the, malicious, campaign, provide, actionable, intelligence, on, the, infrastructure, behind, it, and, discuss, in-depth, the, tactics, techniques, and, procedures, of, the, cybercriminals, behind, it.
