Sucuri, a company that provides website security, has issued a warning about a rise in phoney distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection notifications that spread malware.
The browser displays DDoS protection messages to users when checks are made to ensure that the visitor is actually a human and not a bot or an accomplice in a DDoS attack. Although these alerts may appear to be an inconvenience, they were only intended to serve as preliminary checks before the user accessed the targeted web page and are required to ensure fraudulent traffic is blocked before it reaches its objectives.
The NetSupport RAT, RaccoonStealer information stealer, and two more payloads were seen being dropped by the ISO file.
