browser-based threat 6.17.24

This page was detected by ConcealBrowse on June 14th, with security vendors first detecting the site in May. It was initially detected by 3 vendors, and is now flagged by 15 for phishing, causing ConcealBrowse to intervene with a 28% risk assessment.

Prior to the removal of the site, this page was attempting to harvest credentials via QR code phishing. QR Code phishing involves a malicious actor taking a legitimate authentication QR code and hosting it on their own site. An unsuspecting user then uses the QR code to login to their account with their mobile device, giving the threat actor access to the tokens necessary to steal the account. ConcealBrowse’s intervention helps users recognize deceptive sites quickly, reducing the risk of the QR code being scanned.

browser-based threat 6.17.24

This site was detected by ConcealBrowse on June 13th, the day after the first security vendors began detecting the site. It was initially detected by eight security vendors and is now flagged by 15 due to phishing and malicious activity. ConcealBrowse intervened on this page with a 17% risk assessment, citing suspicious activity.

This is a phishing page looking for a cryptocurrency recovery phrase. Recovery phrases are used to recover cryptocurrency wallets if the user has lost access. If the user were to enter their recovery phrase into this deceptive site, a malicious actor would have complete access to the wallet and be able to transfer all currency out of it. Given the value of some cryptocurrency, this can be devastating to the victim, and there is not a way to reverse the transaction. ConcealBrowse’s intervention blocks all keyboard input while in isolation, stopping users from entering sensitive information into suspicious sites.

browser-based threat 6.17.24

This page was detected by ConcealBrowse on June 13th, first being reported by security vendors on June 12th. It was initially detected by eight vendors and is currently detected by 13 vendors for malicious behavior. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 21% risk assessment due to the suspicious nature of the website.

This site is phishing for social media credentials. Compromised social media accounts may contain more personal data, such as phone numbers and addresses, that can be used to further target the victim. Additionally, malicious actors may use the compromised account to attempt to phish users in the victim’s contact list. Unknowing users are more likely to click on links from someone they trust, continuing the chain of compromise. ConcealBrowse’s intervention blocks keyboard input and prevents users from entering their credentials into sites while in isolation.
