An example of one of the redirects

This site was detected by ConcealBrowse on May 9th, the same day other security vendors began reporting. It was initially detected by three vendors and is now flagged by two vendors for malicious behavior. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 21% risk assessment due to suspicious behavior.

This domain is part of a malicious advertising campaign. The link will redirect to several different sites, which may contain spam, malware, or other harmful material. A browser redirecting to this site without any input from the user may be indicative of a malware infection or a malicious browser extension. ConcealBrowse’s intervention helps alert users that these sites are malicious and encourages further action if their device is compromised.

Conceal Recommends: This domain should be blocked.

browser-based threat 5.13.24

This page was detected by ConcealBrowse on May 9th, before other security vendors began reporting. This site is an emerging threat and is still not detected by any security vendors. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 32% risk assessment, citing proximity and potential phishing activity.

This is a phishing page that aims to steal email credentials and utilizes user verification features to evade website scanners. Before this page is displayed, the user is asked to verify their identity with a Captcha system. This prevents popular scanners and security vendors from viewing the site using automatic tools, keeping the page up longer and increasing the risk to users. While in an isolated session, keyboard input is blocked, and users cannot enter sensitive information.

Conceal Recommends: This URL should be blocked.

browser-based threat 5.13.24

This page was detected by ConcealBrowse on May 10th, the same day other security vendors began reported. It was initially detected by seven vendors, and that number remains the same as of this writing. ConcealBrowse intervened with an 18% risk assessment, citing suspicious behavior.

This site offers free downloads of popular software that usually requires payment to access. Although these offers may be tempting, software obtained through illegitimate sources can carry significant risk for the end-user. They may come attached with malware that can compromise accounts or lock the device with ransomware. While in an isolated session, ConcealBrowse users cannot download or execute any files from the website.

Conceal Recommends: This domain should be blocked to prevent the accidental download of harmful software.
