Weather.com Has Become the Pawn of A Huge Data Theft Scheme

Wanna know tomorrow’s temperature? Don’t visit weather.com to find out, especially if you’re on a mobile device: the website has been compromised by a malicious advertising (malvertising) attack that is scraping personal information from its mobile users. While its purposes are not yet known, security searchers who have already identified and named this strain of malware — alternatively called “IcePick-3PC” or “eGobbler” — theorize that it originates from a group of organized criminals who are collecting the information for a future attack, or selling it on the Dark Web.
