Cloud security startup Wiz warns of a widespread redirection campaign in which thousands of websites targeting East Asian audiences have been compromised using legitimate FTP credentials. In many cases, the attackers managed to obtain highly secure auto-generated FTP credentials, and used them to hijack the victim websites to redirect visitors to adult-themed content. Likely ongoing since September 2022, the campaign has resulted in the compromise of at least 10,000 websites, many owned by small companies and some operated by large corporations. Differences in hosting providers and tech stacks make it difficult to pinpoint a common entry point, Wiz says.
