CYBERCROOKS TARGET U.S. VETERANS WITH FAKE HIRING WEBSITE
Researchers are warning that a fake website – purporting to help U.S. military veterans search for jobs  actually links to installers that download malware onto victims’ systems. The website spoofs a legitimate website for U.S. military veterans offered by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce  (https://www.hiringourheroes.org). However, the fake website instead prompts users to download an app, which in turn downloads malware that deploys malicious spyware and other tools onto victims’ systems. “This particular attack vector has the potential to allow a large swath of people to become victims of this attack,” said Warren Mercer and Paul Rascagneres with Cisco’s Talos security team, in a Tuesday post. “Americans are quick to give back and support the veteran population. Therefore, this website has a high chance of gaining traction on social media, where users could share the link in the hopes of supporting veterans.” LINDSEY O'DONNELL READ MORE
