Recent changes made to the Terror exploit kit (EK) allow it to fingerprint victims and target specific vulnerabilities instead of carpet bombing the victims with many exploits at the same time, Talos researchers discovered.

Terror activity increased last month, after the Sundown EK inexplicably disappeared from the threat landscape.
