DailyMotion hit by malvertising attack
A decoy ad from a rogue advertiser initiates a series of redirections to .eu sites and ultimately loads the Angler exploit kit, a 7 December blog post noted.
Researchers had been tracking the attack via .eu sites but were unable to spot the final payload until they managed to reproduce a live infection via an ad call from DailyMotion. The attack targeted Flash CVE-2015-7645 and possibly other vulnerabilities and was promptly resolved.
It's unclear how many users were impacted.
