Malware purveyors have 'creatively' used video to launch a large-scale malvertising attack earlier this month, according to a report.
The Media Trust, a company that's developed security tools and services for detecting malvertising, blogged about this uncommon way of maware attack. They say that the malware attack used video to orchestrate mayhem affecting 3,000 website for more than 12 hours beginning late on Thursday, October 29.
The malicious content came from a domain called brtmedia[.]net. It was unclear if that domain is connected with BRT Media, which appears to be an online advertising company.
