According to researchers, cybercriminals are adjusting their malvertising campaigns to adapt their malicious ads making them relevant to the COVID-19 crisis, including using website names appearing to host information related to the coronavirus. The campaign hosts an exploit kit called Fallout, which attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in older versions of Internet Explorer. They’re doing this without user action or awareness that anything is happening with the goal of installing Kpot v2.0, an information/password stealer.
