Fake Video player
The 184.108.40.206 website claims that the victim needs to download, install and use a “video player”. This video player is a fake video player which has been loaded with malicious code. Once the victim downloads and runs the 220.127.116.11 malware, the malware will be activated and it will try to communicate with the cybercriminal which is operating the malware. It is also known that the “Fake Video Player” will install pop-up configurations on the device, which in order will load annoying pop-up advertisements.
Another method which is being used by the cybercriminals, is the “Update” method. The cybercriminals will claim that the victims browser or video player is outdated, and that it needs to be updated. The cybercriminals will provide an “fake update” to the victim. The “update” contains malicious code, which will perform the same tasks which we have described in the “Fake video player” piece.
