Adrozek Malware threatens 30k devices a day, says Microsoft

A malware campaign called Adrozek has been sending out fake advertisements to 30,000 devices each day during its peak in August. Microsoft has warned that this malware also extracts device data and steals credentials making it an even more dangerous threat. The malware has attacked several browsers including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Mozilla Firefox, proving the advancement in browser-modifier malwares. 

A security awareness advocate named Erich Kron mentioned that this incident is a great example of how technically advanced modern attackers are. Microsoft tracked where Adrozek came from and found out that it is from an enormous global infrastructure. Microsoft researchers have warned the public to be careful in installing softwares from untrusted and malicious websites.
