MAD Monday Bedtime..
Finding madvertising is really easy. Too easy.
I was just about to call it a day and head to sleep, when I wondered how quickly I could find a few more madverts on Amazon. After all, there are two whole hours of MAD Monday still to go.
Finding this one took less than five minutes.
It looks like Mindspark is certainly getting themselves out there. Search for “retro gamer” on amazon.com, the first sponsored link is deploying binaries that are loaded with malware.
Here’s the binary loaded with malware and the report from VirusTotal with 22 scanners having a problem with it. Just to be clear, the binary is digitally signed and once again it is ‘Mindspark Interactive Network’.
