Scam Group Partnerstroka Uses Browser Locker Against Latest Google Chrome Build


Malwarebytes Labs Jérôme Segura details in a new report the behavior of a new malvertising campaign named Partnerstroka which uses a browser locker technique specifically designed for Google Chrome as well as adaptive algorithms to cover most browsers and platforms.

Tech support scams are still a prime threat for most Internet users and can use multiple ways of luring their victims, from telephone calls impersonating Microsoft staff to malicious tech support ads and pop-ups designed to redirect targets to payment pages.

Among all types of threat actors observed using malvertising methods to scam their victims, Partnerstroka is a new tech support scam group which uses old and verified techniques but with a twist: they use a new type of browser locking method specifically designed for Google Chrome.
