One of the world’s longest-lived malware networks, EITest, has gone offline. EITest was part of several infection chains, used by attackers to redirect users from legitimate sites to compromised sites that shipped exploit kits. In 2016, for example, it was part of an attack that used shampoo brand Just for Men to push the RIG exploit kit. To get rid of EITest, Proofpoint says it worked with researchers from BrilliantIT and Abuse.ch to sinkhole the infection chain.
