browser-based threat 6.24.24

This page was detected by ConcealBrowse on June 17th. It was initially detected by 2 vendors on June 14th and is currently flagged by 14 vendors for phishing. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 19% risk score due to suspicious behavior.

This is a technical support scam, which mainly aims to steal money from victims by pretending to be a legitimate brand. These pages often force the user into fullscreen mode, along with playing alarming noises, which make it more difficult to tell that the notifications are not legitimate. If the user were to dial the phone number, the malicious actor would then walk them through the steps necessary to gain access to their banking information and machine. ConcealBrowse’s intervention benefits the user in this case by showing the interstitial page and letting them know before they proceed that the site is potentially dangerous.

browser-based threat 6.24.24

This page was detected by ConcealBrowse on June 17th, having initially been reported by security vendors earlier in the year. It is currently detected by 18 vendors, causing ConcealBrowse to intervene with a 21% risk assessment.

This is a Microsoft phishing page, attempting to deceive users into entering their email credentials. In today’s age, email credentials are often tied to multiple accounts that hold value to the victim. For example, several workplaces use integrations that allow their employees to login to everything with just their email address. This could lead to a malicious actor gaining access into other systems and put other members of the company at risk. ConcealBrowse’s isolation blocks keyboard input while in a suspicious website, preventing users from entering their credentials.

browser-based threat 6.24.24

This site was detected by ConcealBrowse on June 18th,  and there are currently ten security vendors flagging the site for malware hosting and malicious behavior. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 23% risk assessment because of suspicious activity.

This site claims to host several popular pieces of software that you would normally not be able to obtain without paying for the licenses. However, upon further inspection of the downloads, several security vendors have flagged them as being several different variants of malware. One of these variants is a cryptomining malware. Cryptomining malware infects the machine with software that degrades device performance and may leave it vulnerable to other exploits. While in an isolated session, users cannot download any software onto their device, which helps defend them against malware.
