Virginia based Red Hen Restaurant was targeted by hackers on Wednesday this week as they wanted to hijack the sudden online popularity of the food business to be diverted to their own websites, which sell Viagra at discounted rates.
We all know by now that the said restaurant became famous for refusing to serve to the White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders due to the only fact that she works for 45Th US President Donald Trump and his policies are ‘futile’ in the perspective of the Red Hen Restaurant owner Stephanie Wilkinson.
An investigation launched by Chris Boyd & team, a malware intelligence analyst and from Malwarebytes says that the scammers did not target the website with a political motive, but were just interested in banking on the online popularity of the restaurant in order to create sales on their web portals.
The reason why the analysts did not find anything politically suspicious is due to the fact that the website did not experience defacement or was not put into SEO spam tactics.
Boyd and his team from Malwarebytes found that the hackers injected spam into the search engine results which took Red Hen Restaurant visitors to divert to online sales sites meant to treat reproductory disorders in Humans.
Technically the effort is called spamdexing and scamsters often make small websites as victims in such attacks.
Note- Sarah Huckabee Sanders who has three children will get an extra security cover due to the latest developments which took place in case of ‘migrant children separation’.
