Infected Ads On Dating Site PlentyOfFish

On the free online dating site PlentyOfFish infectious ads have appeared that tried to infect visitors with a Trojan horse. PlentyOfFish receives daily more than three million visitors. The ads on the website users imperceptibly sent to a website with the Nuclear exploitkit. This exploitkit is using known vulnerabilities in Adobe Flash Player and Internet Explorer.

In the case the attack was successful was the Tinba banking Trojan installed on the computer. This Trojan is designed to steal money from online bank accounts. The infected ads were distributed through the ad network, reports anti-virus company Malwarebytes. Visitors PlentyOfFish whose software up-to-date was ran no risk in this attack.
