Tech Support Scammer, not your ISP

Jérôme Segura has blogged for Malwarebytes about a somewhat innovative tech support scam campaign: Scammers Impersonate ISPs in New Tech Support Campaign.

The scam is pushed by malvertising which

‘detects which Internet Service Provider (ISP) you are using (based on your IP address) and displays a legitimate looking page that urges you to call for immediate assistance.’

Added to the tech support scam resource page at AVIEN.
