Ender's Game News Leads to Blackhole Exploit Kit

ANALYSIS BY

Cyril Coronado


The movie Ender's Game, based on a novel of the same name, did not escape cybercriminals' sights. Trend Micro researchers spotted Blackhole Exploit Kit spam campaign using the movie's name.

The spammed message disguises itself as coming from news agency CNN. It also namedrops actor Harrison Ford's name in the subject line. The message itself has a link that leads to BHEK-related URL.

Trend Micro users are protected from this threat as products block the spam and URL.
