Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Known as Gumblar by ScanSafe and Troj/JSRedir-R by Sophos and Gumblar, this botnet first appeared in 2009. It is characterized by redirecting user's Google searches and installing rogue security software. Visitors to an infected site will be redirected to an alternative site containing further Malware, which was once gumblar.cn, but has now switched to a variety of domains. The site sends the visitor an infected PDF that is opened by the visitor's browser or Acrobat Reader. The PDF will then exploit a known vulnerability in Acrobat to gain access to the user's computer. On the new variations of Gumblar, it is redirecting users to sites running the fake anti virus.show more
