November 1, 2016 - In this post we take a look at a malvertising campaign that we traced back to late August and that is targeting adult traffic. While initially pushing the Neutrino exploit kit, it switched to RIG EK in September. We estimate that at least one million visitors to adult websites were exposed to this particular campaign.
October 18, 2016 - The Sundown exploit kit is keeping us busy by switching from one variant to the next. This latest one clearly was inspired by the original source code and we take the time to explore it a little bit more.
September 27, 2016 - In the battle of exploit kits, RIG EK has earned some extra mileage by being leveraged in a high profile malvertising attack on popular website answers.com. The same domain shadowing campaigns that were popular in the Angler era are continuing with RIG now.
