Summary: Chinese-speaking users are being targeted in an ongoing malvertising campaign that leverages Google ads. The threat actor employs Google advertiser accounts to create deceptive ads that lure users into downloading Remote Administration Trojans (RATs). The malicious ads are designed to mimic popular messaging platforms, redirecting users to pages where the unsuspecting victims inadvertently download the RATs.
