Don’t be fooled by fake ads for this file transfer service – they could lead to malware

A well-known ransomware group is pushing fake ads to lure people into visiting webpages that spoof the official WinSCP (Windows Secure Copy) site, experts have warned.

BlackCat, also known as ALPHV, has loaded the pages with malware installers that infect the victim when they visit. BleepingComputer claims that the group hopes to target “system administrators, web admins, and IT professionals for initial access to valuable corporate networks.”
