Imgur vulnerability exploited in attack on 4chan
Images Share Service Imgur faced a vulnerability that could allow malicious code could be added to image links. The exploit led to a DDoS attack on 4chan and 8chan, and also left behind malware on the PCs of users of these sites.
Imgur confirms the leak and says measures have to patch it. “After analysis by our team, it seems that the exploit was specifically aimed at users of 4chan and 8chan, with images from a specific sub-reddit were shared with Imgurs hosting and sharing tools,” reads the site.
The latter has not yet been confirmed, and it is unclear what would be the goal of this attack. Imgur recommends deleting users to browse data, cookies, and local storage.Viewing:-162
