    Other Methods of the RBN - Fake Codec Sites


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    Another method deployed by the RBN is the use of fake codec websites, which act similar to the fake malware sites. A codec, for those that don't know, is a program that lets an operating system play video/audio in a given format, such as DivX. The visitor is lured to the fake codec sites and prompted to download one of the programs. When they do, an exploit is loaded into their machine for any number of purposes.

    Below is a compiled list, made possible by the good folks at RBNExploit and Jahewi's Fake Codec Information site:

    As with the majority of websites in this series, it is highly recommended that you do not visit these sites. In fact, I am posting them here specifically so that you won't.
