browser-based threat 6.3.24

This page was detected by ConcealBrowse on May 31st. It was first flagged by security vendors in April, and there are currently nineteen vendors reporting this site as malicious. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 25% risk assessment, citing suspicious behavior.

This is a phishing page that attempts to harvest email credentials. Email credentials are particularly valuable to threat actors, due to their wide scope of use. A compromised email address can be used to send out more convincing phishing emails to other potential victims by coming from a trusted sender. Additionally, any credentials that were shared with the email address are also compromised and could lead to the loss of accounts that belong to the same user. While in an isolated session, ConcealBrowse ignores keyboard input, so user credentials are secure.

An example of one of the redirects

This site was detected by ConcealBrowse on May 31st, the same day other security vendors began reporting. It is currently detected by three vendors for malicious behavior. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 14% risk assessment due to suspicious activity.

Although the page has since been removed, the IP address associated with this domain has been involved in multiple instances of fraudulent downloads. This software, such as the one shown above, disguises itself as a legitimate service. Once installed, the computer is infected with adware that creates pop-ups or redirects users to unwanted websites. They may also act as a browser hijacker, changing default browser settings and putting the user’s data at risk. While in an isolated session, ConcealBrowse blocks downloads from suspicious websites.

This site was registered on May 31st, the same day that it was removed, making it a zero-day phishing attack.
