Scammers Are Targeting Global Events Including RSA 2018

To say hackers are becoming confident is an understatement. Recently SlashNext’s Threat Intelligence Lab uncovered a series of Phishing web sites that were set up to promote a variety of Global Events and luring victims to these web sites in that process.

Some of notable events currently being targeted by these scammers are as follows:

Event/Official
Phishing Site
http://rsa2018.org
OTAKON Convention
https://www.otakon.com/
http://otakon-2018.org
ALIMENTARIA International Show
http://www.alimentaria-bcn.com/en/
http://alimentaria2018.com
http://acs-meeting.org
http://eshremeeting2018.com

At the time of this writing, all of these phishing web sites are hosted on in a data enter located in Mumbai, India. Through IP correlation, we discovered a related business called KCBJ, who claims “Our mission is to completely delight and satisfy our client. We are committed to making a difference every day; continually getting better to keep us the best in market.”

These attackers offer a variety of travel and lodging deals through these phishing web sites and lure victims to initiate booking through their site, but instead of being used for the requested booking(s) upon completion all funds will be delivered to a fake Paypal account. It is likely, that any and all personal information collected through this process will be used to commit additional fraud.

These type of attacks is a prime example of Internet deception, where using someone else’s logos, names and branding can result in employees being directed to sites they did not intend to visit, releasing information they didn’t intend to give up.

You may ask, “Who would fall for this?”

Well, Just take a look at all the sites, and if the hackers weren’t successful, they wouldn’t invest in building them out.

Phishing sites are one of the biggest threats users face on a day to day basis.

Here is the screenshot of the fake RSA2018.ORG web site.
