A Researchers Story: Uncovering the Omnatour Malvertising Network
ThreatTalk season 3 episode 15
To deliver malware, threat actors depend on techniques like phishing and malvertising, but malvertising doesn’t get as much visibility. To address this imbalance, we’ve invited Chance Tudor, an official “Threat Hunter” in the Infoblox threat research group, to talk about his recent work uncovering the Omnatour Malvertising network, an unusually large and persistent threat delivery system. Our discussion will focus on the behind-the-scenes investigation work, starting with how they even knew a threat even needed to be investigated.

Over his career, he has helped many of today’s leading security vendors pioneer and introduce many new technologies as a developer, architect, product manager, and marketer.
