PlentyOfFish members need to review their account after reading this post. While our mind still recalls the recent Ashley Madison leak, we got report on similar attack on PlentyOfFish.
Last time we know, the attackers use Nuclear exploit kit to drop massive attacks at once. With this, you should expect to have your system disabled (read PC World report on this attack here). Just like any malvertising attack, this attack also involves an ad network. They use ad.360yield.com to host the exploit kit and target thousands of PlentyOfFish users. The impact was huge. Yet, we should be able to prevent it. Just a few days after the break, our security experts told us the truth. They had predicted the event from a day before the incident. That is when they found the network was related to a rare malvertising attack. At first, they thought that it was another random attack. Well, it was until they realize that it wasn’t random. That day, the attackers simulated their strategies. They used multiple hoops to cover their tracks. Then, they lead their victims to malicious page.
The malvertising attack was not the only threat. The attackers also injected Trojans to PlentyOfFish users. It is possible for two reasons. First, both attacks took the same time. Second, they involve the same network. Learning this fact might be too late to prevent the attack. However, it is never too late to fix it. After getting reports from their members, PlentyOfFish have become aware of this issue. They quickly began solving this problem as they received the reports.
