CEIDPageLock hijacks your browser

By tcavadias Staff ·
The RIG exploit kit, which at its peak infected an average of 27,000 machines per day, has been grafted with a new tool designed to hijack browsing sessions.

The malware in question, a rootkit called CEIDPageLock, has been distributed through the exploit kit in recent weeks.

The malware targets Microsoft Windows systems. The dropper extracts a 32-bit kernel-mode driver which is saved in the Windows temporary directory with the name "houzi.sys." While signed, the certificate has now been revoked by the issuer.
