#1679 Inside the RIG exploit kit
Today’s most prolific exploit kit is RIG, which has filled a void left by the departure of Angler, Neutrino and Nuclear. That has made it public enemy No. 1 when it comes exploit kits. Now Cisco Talos researchers are hoping to shed new light into the ongoing development of the potent EK in hopes of neutralizing the RIG EK threat.

In a deep analysis of RIG, Cisco Talos team outlined recently the unique nature of the exploit kit. In a nutshell, like other exploit kits the crew behind RIG are using gates to redirect their victims to their exploit kit.
