BlackHat SEO Attacks Redirect to 4DW4R3 Rootkit
We have analyzed a new blackhat seo attack these days and we have noticed that now the main target of these attacks are not anymore the spread of rogue security software, but instead they try to spread the dangerous 4DW4R3 rootkit, and then with this rootkit they may install, in future, a new rogue security software in the victim’s computer.
Below there is a small analysis of the network traffic we have captured during the analysis of these new blackhat seo attacks. The targets of the attacks are mostly keywords related to iphone, episodes of cartoons and world cup 2010 matches.
