There is a tricky new attempt by hackers to trick users into downloading ransomware onto their computers. Unsuspecting users are shown what appears to be a Google Chrome popup prompting the user to install a new font.
The hackers are first corrupting a website to lay a trap for users. When a user encounters a hacked website they get prompted that the “HoeflerText for was not found” and the user is provided an ‘update’ button. Unfortunately, the ‘update’ button downloads and installs the Spora Ransomware.
