The Blackhole Exploit Kit is nothing new for PC security researchers. However, the Blackhole Exploit Kit is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous tools in hackers' arsenals. The fact that criminals released a freely-available version of the Blackhole Exploit Kit in 2010 means that the Blackhole Exploit Kit can now be personalized and used for several attacks. The Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150 infection is one of the many variants of the dangerous Blackhole Exploit Kit and is used to attempt to attack a computer system by taking advantage of numerous known vulnerabilities which can be used to download malware on the victim's computer system. The Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150, in particular, is Java-based and tends to exploit vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment, so the Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150 will be able to install other malware on the victim's computer system. Usually, a Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150 attack occurs in the background, without any visual cues that may alert the victim that their computer system is under attack.
Security experts have identified numerous sources of a Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150 infection, including attack websites and pop-up windows, corrupted advertisements, scripts placed into normally-safe websites, and social engineering attacks containing malicious email attachments or fake video codecs. The Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150 infection is often associated with variants of the Zeus Trojan, which was also leaked to criminals in 2010. Both of these can be used together to carry out a coordinated attack – the Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150 attack will attempt to install some version of the Zeus Trojan, for example.
Avoid Becoming a Victim of the Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150
While it is important to use fully-updated anti-malware software and a firewall, the main way in which you can prevent becoming a victim of a Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150 attack is by using common sense when browsing the Internet and becoming familiarized with common tactics criminals use to direct you to online content containing malware. While the Blackhole Exploit Kit 2150 can exploit vulnerabilities on your computer system, criminals still have to find ways to direct you towards the Blackhole Exploit Kit. To do this, they will often resort to social engineering, that is, lying and enticing you with hard-to-believe offers of breaking news stories, easy money, or sexual content. ESG security researchers recommend avoiding website typically considered unsafe and avoiding unsolicited email attachments and other common sources of malware.
