Porn Site xHamster Hit by Malvertising Wave

“The SSL malvertising campaign we documented in August that affected Yahoo.com, MSN.com and several other top sites is still ongoing,” said Malwarebytes researcher Jerome Segura, in a blog shared with Infosecurity ahead of publication. “What allows us to differentiate [this campaign] from other malvertising attacks are some similar patterns in the infrastructure, such as the use of free cloud-based platforms providing Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).”

Researchers have observed the Microsoft Azure and RedHat cloud platforms being used by the threat actors behind the attack, and now, a new platform has been added to the mix. The bad guys are using IBM’s Bluemix, looking to make use of the free HTTPS encryption that it provides them in the delivery of malicious code.
