Brits going on their summer holidays have been warned that an evil new malware is targeting those whose use free Wi-Fi at hotels across the globe.

The DarkHotel group have been carrying out cyber crimes for over a decade, targeting travellers worldwide with malware attacks.

But now they’re back with a new threat that compromises free Wi-Fi hotspots at hotels.

The attack begins with a Wi-Fi network being compromised either by exploiting server vulnerabilities or gaining access to the hotel’s infrastructure.

Hackers then begin a series of phishing and social engineering tricks that infect targeted computers.

The malware, dubbed Inexsmar, begins like many others of its kind with an e-mail that arrives in the victims’ inbox.

However, these messages are individually designed to convince the target of its authenticity.

So, unlike other bulk phishing scams – it’s tailor made for the target.

Speaking to ZDNet, senior e-threat analyst at Bitdefender Bogdan Botezatu said: “The social engineering part of the attack involves a very carefully crafted phishing email targeted to one person at a time.”
