I have been tracking a Rig EK campaign that drops Bunitu. It appears to be cycling domains often. I originally found it via my usual malvertising chain. Every site always has an iframe to another domain usually on the same IP which then leads to Rig EK. I believe the gate requires a correct referrer in order to appear. I’m not sure if this gate exists anywhere else in the wild or whether it is unique to the threat actors behind Bunitu.
If you review the picture below you can see initial iframe has the width and height of 303 and every iframe redirecting to Rig EK has the “small” tag.
