Nebula Exploit Kit

Nebula Exploit Kit Description

The Nebula Exploit Kit is used to attack their victims' computers. Exploit kits like the Nebula Exploit Kit are used to take advantage of vulnerabilities onto the victims' computers to install threats, collect information or carry out other attacks on unprotected PCs. The Nebula Exploit Kit is a sophisticated exploit kit that is relatively new and can be used to carry out devastating attacks on victims.

How the Nebula Exploit Kit can Enter a Computer

The Nebula Exploit Kit was created so that malware developers could distribute their threatening creations to vulnerable computers. The Nebula Exploit Kit will exploit known vulnerabilities in the targeted computer's software and hardware to run a corrupted code onto the victim's computer. For example, using the Nebula Exploit Kit, third parties can deliver a Trojan dropper or downloader, which will, in turn, deliver other threats to the targeted PC. PC security researchers have received reports of the Nebula Exploit Kit ads on the Dark Web, on forums and on shops on shady websites that are out of reach of most computer users. The people responsible for the Nebula Exploit Kit research vulnerabilities in software and then create software like the Nebula Exploit Kit to exploit these vulnerabilities to make money or collect information. Creators of exploit kits like the Nebula Exploit Kit will attempt to keep these vulnerabilities quiet until they can be sold and then used to carry out high-profile threat attacks. In the case of the Nebula Exploit Kit, however, instead of doing this, the cybercrooks are allowing third parties to subscribe to the Nebula Exploit Kit updates and receive updated versions of this software periodically.

How the Nebula Exploit Kit is Used and Distributed

The cybercrooks must pay to use the Nebula Exploit Kit, and the price will depend on the amount of time that they will use the Nebula Exploit Kit. To have access to the Nebula Exploit Kit for 24 hours costs 100 USD, a week costs 600 USD, and one month costs 2000 USD. The Nebula Exploit Kit has support infrastructure similar to legitimate software, and users of this threat can connect to the Nebula Exploit Kit's developers using instant messaging and email. Most of the Nebula Exploit Kit attacks are being used to target computers located in Europe. The Nebula Exploit Kit can be used to deliver a variety of file types to the victim, including executable files, DLLs, Visual Basic and Java scripts. The Nebula Exploit Kit has an advanced graphic interface and can be used to connect online using sophisticated methods. The people distributing the Nebula Exploit Kit have reported some features in connection with the Nebula Exploit Kit:

  • API rotator domains.
  • Includes custom domains and server.
  • Automatic domain scanning and generating.
  • Ability to delegate tasks by country and file.
  • Generate a feed with statistics on the ongoing malvertising campaign.

The Nebula Exploit Kit is used in conjunction with two main types of threats; ransomware and cryptocurrency mining malware. Ransomware Trojans are threats designed to take the victims' files hostage in exchange for a ransom. They will use a strong encryption algorithm to make the victim's files inaccessible and demand payment in exchange for the decryption key. A cryptocurrency mining malware is designed to take over the victim's computer and use its resources (such as memory and processing power) to generate revenue by mining cryptocurrency. The victims may be pushed to websites containing the Nebula Exploit Kit through unsafe advertising links. The Nebula Exploit Kit is capable of taking advantage of several vulnerabilities that were detected in 2016 and 2017. Because of this, it is important to ensure that all of your software is fully updated with the latest security patches and updates since these threats are especially effective against computers that have not received timely updates.
