  • The credential of the affected user account is being sold on the dark web for a price starting from $800.
  • Following the discovery, Sizmek has forced a password reset on all internal employee accounts. 
Sizmek, an American online advertising platform is investigating a security incident in which hackers have gained access to one of the firm’s user account. The credential of the affected user account is being sold on the dark web for a price starting from $800.
 
What is the matter - Security research Brian Krebs discovered that the compromised account has been put up for sale on a Russian-language cybercrime forum. The account can allow the attackers to modify ads and analytics of big-name advertisers such as Gannett and Fox Broadcasting. The bidding of the stolen account starts at $800.
 
What is the impact - If threat actors buy access to these type of accounts, they can use it as a platform to add new users to the ad system and infect both the existing ads and offers. They can do this by injecting malicious scripts into the HTML code of ads that run on popular sites.
Citing further on threat actors’ nefarious activities, Kreb said, “They could hijack referral commissions destined for others and otherwise siphon ad profits from the system.”
