Google Bans Several Malicious India-linked Domains

More than a dozen malicious India-linked domains and websites that were being used in hack-for-hire attacks targeting users worldwide have now been banned by Google’s Threat Analysis Group (TAG).

To alert users to the threat, the company recently published a blog post in which they listed the banned domain links that were used to inject spying tools into users’ PCs/laptops by masquerading as fake login pages for websites or apps.

The blog post read, “As part of TAG’s mission to counter serious threats to Google and our users, we’ve published analysis on a range of persistent threats including government-backed attackers, commercial surveillance vendors, and serious criminal operators.”

“We’re sharing intelligence on a segment of attackers we call hack-for-hire, whose niche focuses on compromising accounts and exfiltrating data as a service,” it continued.
