Adversary Tactics Intel Group Finds Gootloader Threat Actors Use SEO Poison Technique to Exploit Gov, Legal, Real Estate, Med, Ed Victims with Highly Targeted Content

Deepwatch has published a new report uncovering Gootloader threat actors using the search engine optimization (SEO) poisoning technique. In the latest report from its Adversary Tactics and Intelligence (ATI) group, Deepwatch looks at a technique where threat actors are compromising legitimate websites, creating fake blog posts, and using overlays to display a fake forum page over blog posts–all to snare government, legal, real estate, medical, and education victims with highly-targeted content.

This is a very sophisticated attack and the report is well worth your time to read.
