Nebula Exploit Kit is a malicious toolkit applied by cyber criminals to exploit vulnerabilities in victims' browsers and drivers. This kit was first spotted a year ago. You can easily infect your system with all kinds of payloads if you land on a malicious page armed with this exploit kit unless your browsers and drivers are all up-to-date, of course. It is possible that you clicked on the wrong web content or got redirected to this malicious page otherwise. In any case, it is possible that your PC is infected with malware and this is why you end up on such a page. Since this kit means serious danger to your computer, we recommend that you remove Nebula Exploit Kit right away by trying to detect any possibly responsible suspicious applications. Please read our full report if you would like to learn more about the capabilities of this dangerous kit and how you can avoid similar attacks.

In order for you to be infected by this exploit kit, you need to be redirected to the malicious web server where there could be multiple pages set up as traps. This can basically happen in two ways. First, you may be redirected to such a malicious page automatically when your PC is infected with malware like adware. Second, you may click on corrupt third-party content, which triggers the redirection. The second case can happen when you are viewing a suspicious website (e.g., torrent, freeware, gaming, and betting) and you click on any content there, such as fake navigational buttons, fake download buttons, and third-party ads. But you can also be exposed to unsafe third-party content when an adware program, a browser hijacker, or even a potentially unwanted program is hiding on your system. So, if you want to be certain that your PC is clean and no infection can harm you, it is essential that after you delete Nebula Exploit Kit, i.e., the application that could be responsible for it, you also run a malware scanner to find all other threats, including the malicious payload as well.

Another way for you to end up on such a malicious page rigged with this exploit kit is by opening a spam e-mail and clicking on the compromised link therein. Nowadays spam mails are rather tricky and convincing. You may believe that this e-mail is very important for you to open because it refers to a seemingly urgent matter. Your curiosity this time may cost you dearly. The lesson here is to be doubtful and vigilant whenever you receive an e-mail you are not expecting. You may not even realize for long that you have infected your computer with such a dangerous threat. So how could you delete Nebula Exploit Kit when you do not even know it has infected you with a payload?

This vicious exploit kit is rented out by hackers to cyber criminals who set it up on their web servers to deliver malicious payloads to victims' computers. There are three types of subscriptions: $100 for 24 hours, $600 for 7 days, and $2000 for 31 days. Once it is set up, these criminals need to make sure that unsuspecting users will be redirected to their server and their malicious pages on it. Here is a list of features this exploit kit offers:

  • Automatic domain scanning and generating (99% FUD)
  • API rotator domains
  • Exploit rate tested in different traffic go up 8/19%
  • Knock rate tested with popular botnet go 30/70%
  • Clean and modern user interface
  • Custom domains & server (add & point your own domains coming soon...)
  • Unlimited flows & files
  • Scan file & domains
  • Multiple payload file types supported (exe , dll , js, vbs)
  • Multiple geo flow (split loads by country & file)
  • Remote file support (checks every minute if file hash changes; if changed, replaces it) for automatic crypting
  • Public stats by file & flow
  • Latest CVE-2016 CVE-2017
  • Custom features just ask support

Practically, this kit can drop any .exe, .dll, .js, and .vbs malicious file, which can perform all kinds of actions on your computer without your knowledge, including stealing sensitive information from you, damaging files, and so on. Although you cannot actually remove Nebula Exploit Kit directly as it is stored on the remote web server, you can try to identify the infection that may have redirected you to the malicious page with this kit and remove it from your system.

You may have multiple malware threats on your system that could be responsible for this redirection to the malicious page that is armed with this threat. If you follow our instructions below, you can reset your browsers to make sure that no browser-related infections remain on board. In addition to that, you can also inspect your list of installed programs to uninstall all suspicious applications. Still, the best possible way for you to protect your PC against present and future infections is to install a reliable anti-malware program like SpyHunter. If your computer is protected with up-to-date security software, even if you accidentally were to land on a malicious page, you could get away with it without risking further damage to your system.
