THE DAWN OF POWERSHELL EVOLVING ADWARE

CYBEREASON LAB RESEARCH

While adware is usually considered annoying for users and relatively harmless to enterprise security, the adware campaigns Cybereason Labs has seen since the beginning of 2016 behave more like advanced network threats.

In this research report, Cybereason Labs dissects an adware attack that used PowerShell to execute commands and remain persistent on the host machines. Along with creating hourly scheduled tasks, the adware also has the potential to download additional malicious code and direct the user to compromised websites.
