At Conceal, your digital safety is our utmost priority. Our weekly browser-based threat report for the week of January 22nd, 2024, unveils critical insights into the ever-evolving landscape of online threats.
The following browser-based threat report highlights recently detected sites that were deemed suspicious:
ConcealBrowse detected this URL on January 16th, 2024. It was first identified by 2 security vendors six months ago and is currently reported by 11 others. ConcealBrowse isolated the page with a 37% risk due to possible malware and phishing.
Initially, this web page appears to be a generic banking website requesting information for a new account. However, further investigation into the website reveals an address in Los Angeles that does not exist, and there is no phone number listed. The company name has a history of being used for banking scam operations, and this page is an example of personal information harvesting. These kinds of attacks can be used for identity theft and are particularly dangerous because they are often brushed off as legitimate due to the nature of the web page.
ConcealBrowse detected this URL on January 18th, 2024. Later that day, other security vendors started reporting it as well. It has now been identified by 9 vendors, labeling it as malware and malicious. ConcealBrowse assigned this threat a 14% risk.
Software that has not been shared from recognized publishers, such as the one on this site, should be avoided whenever possible. They may contain hidden malware that deploys on the machine when installed. When analyzed, the program hosted on this website contained possible credential scraping tools. These tools scan browsers for any saved passwords to steal and compromise accounts. Although the website itself is not malicious, ConcealBrowse’s isolation allows users to recognize that the downloadable programs on this site could be dangerous.
This URL was detected by ConcealBrowse on January 19th, 2024. It was detected by several security vendors in February of 2023 and is currently being flagged by 12 of them. It is classified as a phishing attempt, being isolated by ConcealBrowse with a 14% risk assessment.
This webpage is a clone of the Netflix home page and includes a box for the user to enter their email address, as well as various images and hyperlinks. Even though a password is not harvested, collecting email addresses can lead to more specialized attacks, such as spear phishing. Creating a Netflix clone is a common practice exercise for new web developers, but they usually have multiple pages and elements such as thumbnails and embedded video trailers. This page lacks these features, and that, combined with other suspicious elements found by ConcealBrowse, indicates that this is likely a malicious page.
