Non-affiliated webpages that push custom video game components such as cursors should be viewed cautiously. Sites like this are often not moderated and push custom-scripted game components. This specific site is loaded from an IP address that security vendors have flagged as malicious. This IP also delivers similar domains that have been flagged and use the same naming convention, such as videogame-cursors[.]online. In fact, a handful of these domains were also isolated by ConcealBrowse. This site and many of these domains are still active and should be avoided.
This URL was detected by ConcealBrowse on January 10th, 2024. It was first identified by 2 security vendors on the same day, with 3 reporting to date. ConcealBrowse intervened assigning the page a 14% risk due to suspicion.
Upon first look, the webpage itself is using a malicious Top-Level Domain (TLD) that is notoriously used globally for malware distribution and phishing campaigns. The domain itself is also leveraging deception, as there is a legitimate Robin AI used by many. Due to this, vendors have annotated this site as phishing. Further, the page is seen downloading an HTML file that has also been annotated as suspicious by two reputable anti-virus vendors. More grandeur, the hosting IP address was flagged and is delivering other copycat websites to users. With that, users should always confirm login page addresses before divulging credentials and other personal information.
The URL was detected by ConcealBrowse on January 16th, 2024. It was detected by various security vendors on January 16th, 2024, and currently is flagged by 2 vendors. This delivered page is classified as malware and malicious by those 2 vendors. ConcealBrowse interdicted this page and prescribed a 22% risk score.
The webpage was seen redirecting to a Yahoo webpage that loads various scripts from third party hosting sites in the process. The page was seen delivering suspicious downloads that have matched various crowdsourced YARA rules for encoded content. This is often used to bypass security mechanisms by encoding script so that it cannot be detected. Although it loads a legitimate Yahoo page, upon delivery there are callouts to third-party hosting sites to execute the various scripts to initiate downloads. Due to this, the page should be avoided.
