Every day an average of 30 websites in the RU zone are hacked and start redirecting their mobile visitors to malicious sites. There are four main partner networks behind this, and I will share some statistics about their effectiveness/profits. I will show the popularity of the malware samples and their main 'landings' (fake GooglePlay, OperaUpdate, etc). This is a new trend among mobile malware writers, and we have had some requests about it from mobile providers. In addition, I will go into details of three major redirection techniques and the main methods used to hack these sites.

VB2013 takes place 2-4 October 2013 in Berlin, Germany.
