Website Malware – Mobile Redirect to BaDoink Porn App

Online Security Share this post

A few weeks ago we reported that we were seeing a huge increase in the number of web sites compromised with a hidden redirection to pornographic content. It was a very tricky injection, with the redirection happening only once per day per IP address and only if the visitor was using a mobile device (IPhone, Android and a few others).

These types of injections are called conditional redirections because certain conditions need to be met for them to redirect visitors. They are not always present and the malware authors try very hard to hide them from the website owner. The malware code looks for logged in cookies to try to identify whether or not someone is managing the site and then attempts to never redirect someone who is logged in. Finally, if a visitor gets redirected once, the malware will not redirect them again. The goal for the malware author is for visitors to not report something going wrong with a website. In this example, if you were to visit an infected site, you’d be redirected, but from your point of view, maybe it was just something weird so you retype the url and now you aren’t redirected. Since everything is working normally now, you decide not to report it and the malware lives on.
