DailyMotion hit with malvertising attack
Researchers at Malwarebytes spotted a malvertising attack targeting the popular video-sharing site DailyMotion.
A decoy ad from a rogue advertiser initiates a series of redirections to .eu sites and ultimately loads the Angler exploit kit, a Dec. 7 blog post noted.
Researchers had been tracking the attack via .eu sites but were unable to spot the final payload until they managed to reproduce a live infection via an ad call from DailyMotion. The attack targeted (Flash CVE-2015-7645) and possibly targeted other vulnerabilities and was promptly resolved. Its unclear how many were impacted.
