26 April 2013 - "193.107.16.213 is a web server run by Ideal Solution Ltd in the Seychelles. It contains many malware sites that should be blocked, and you might well want to consider blocking the entire 193.107.16.0/22 (193.107.16.0 - 193.107.19.255) range. VirusTotal detects a number of malicious sites on this server (see report*) but blocking access to this IP address is probably the easiest approach. However there seems to be very little of value in the whole /22 and I have personally had it blocked for some months with no ill effects.

Multiple Facebook SCAMS ...
- http://www.hoax-slay...ewer-scam.shtml
April 30, 2013 - "Outline: Message being spammed across Facebook claims that users can follow a link to install an app that allows them to check who has been viewing their profile.
Brief Analysis: The message is an attempt to trick Facebook users into relinquishing control of their Facebook accounts to Internet scammers by submitting their Facebook authentication token. The scammers will use the compromised accounts to launch further spam and scam campaigns in the names of their victims. Any message that claims that you can install an app to see who has viewed your profile is likely to be a scam. Do not click on any links in these messages...
Detailed Analysis: This message, which is currently appearing on Facebook, claims that users can check out who has been viewing their Facebook profiles by clicking a link and installing a new app.
However, the message is a scam designed to trick users into temporarily handing control of their Facebook accounts to online scammers. Those who click the link will first be taken to a Facebook page with further "instructions" for procuring the app:
> http://www.hoax-slay...ewer-scam-1.jpg
If victims follow the link on the page, they will next be taken to a second page that falsely claims that Facebook is now required to show users who has been viewing their profile:
> http://www.hoax-slay...ewer-scam-2.jpg
Next, victims are taken to a "security check" and told that they must generate an "age verification code" before proceeding:
> http://www.hoax-slay...ewer-scam-3.jpg
Users will then receive the following instructions:
> http://www.hoax-slay...ewer-scam-4.jpg
Folllowed by this:
> http://www.hoax-slay...ewer-scam-5.jpg
... by pasting the "age verification" code as instructed, users are in fact giving the scammers access to their Facebook accounts, including their Friends list. The code is the victim's Facebook authentication token, which can then be used by the criminals to temporarily hijack the Facebook account. The compromised accounts are then used to distribute more of the same scam messages on Facebook... victims will be taken onward to various bogus survey pages and enticed to participate, supposedly as a further prerequisite to getting the promised profile viewer app... In reality, the profile viewer app does not exist... Some versions use the promise of a profile viewer to lead victims directly to a scam survey page. Other versions try to trick users into first installing a rogue Facebook application that will send spam and scam messages to all of their friends.
Do not trust any message that claims that you can click a link and install an app to see who has viewed your profile. If you receive such a message, delete it."

UK banks targeted with Trojans and social engineering
- https://www.net-secu...ews.php?id=2477
April 30, 2013 - "... Trusteer’s security team recently analyzed a Ramnit variant that is targeting a UK bank with a clever one-time password (OTP) scam. The malware stays idle until the user successfully logs into their account, at which time it presents them with one of the following messages:
> https://www.net-secu...er-042013-1.jpg
- or:
> https://www.net-secu...er-042013-2.jpg
While the user is reading the message, Ramnit connects to its command and control server and obtains the details of a designated mule account. This is followed by the initiation of a wire transfer to the money mule. But, there is still one more obstacle in the way of the malware – to complete the transaction a One Time Password (OTP) must be entered by the user. To overcome this requirement Ramnit displays the following message:
> https://www.net-secu...er-042013-3.jpg
The temporary receiver number in the message is in fact the mule’s account number. The user then receives the SMS and thinking that he must complete the “OTP service generation”, enters their OTP. By entering the OTP, the user unknowingly enables the malware to complete the fraudulent transaction and finalize the payment to the mule account. This is yet another example of how well designed social engineering techniques help streamline the fraud process... the authors most likely used ‘find and replace’ to switch the two words that resulted in the grammatical mistake “a option.” Nevertheless, by changing multiple entries in the FAQ section Ramnit* demonstrates that its authors did not leave anything to chance – even if the victim decides to go the extra step, Ramnit is already there..."

Malicious PDFs on the rise
- http://blog.trendmic...fs-on-the-rise/
Apr 29, 2013 - "... we continue to see CVE-2012-0158 in heavy use, we have noticed increasing use of an exploit for Adobe Reader (CVE-2013-0640)... files used dnsport.chatnook .com, inter.so-webmail .com, and 223.25.242.45 as their command-and-control servers... Our research indicates that attackers engaged in APT campaigns may have adapted the exploit made infamous by the MiniDuke campaign and have incorporated it into their arsenal. At the same time, we have found that other APT campaigns seem to have developed their own methods to exploit the same vulnerability. The increase in malicious PDF’s exploiting CVE-2013-0640 may indicate the start of shift in APT attacker behavior away from using malicious Word documents that exploit the now quite old CVE-2012-0158."

Phish target Apple IDs
- http://blog.trendmic...-phishing-bait/
Apr 30, 2013 - "Phishers appear to have concentrated their fire on a relatively new target: Apple IDs. In recent days, we’ve seen a spike in phishing sites that try to steal Apple IDs... Technically, the sites were only compromised, but not hacked (as the original content was not modified). It’s possible, however, that the sites may be hacked or defaced if the site stays compromised... the directory contains pages that spoof the Apple ID login page fairly closely:
> http://blog.trendmic.../fake_apple.jpg
We’ve identified a total of 110 compromised sites, all of hosted at the IP address 70.86.13.17, which is registered to an ISP in the Houston area. Almost all of these sites have not been cleaned:
> http://blog.trendmic...13/04/chart.png
The graph above shows the increase in phishing sites targeting Apple IDs. We’ve seen attacks targeting not only American users, but also British and French users. Some versions of this attack ask not only for the user’s Apple ID login credentials, but also their billing address and other personal and credit card information. It will eventually result in a page that states that access has been restored, but of course the information has been stolen. One can see in the sample page below how it asks for credit card information:
> http://blog.trendmic...credit_card.jpg
Users may be redirected to these phishing sites via spam messages that state that the user’s account will expire unless their information is subject to an “audit”, which not only gets users to click on the link, it puts them in a mindset willing to give up information.
> http://blog.trendmic.../apple_mail.jpg
One way to identify these phishing sites, is that the fake sites do not display any indications that you are at a secure site (like the padlock and “Apple Inc. [US]” part of the toolbar), which you can see in this screenshot of the legitimate site:
> http://blog.trendmic...4/legitsite.jpg
The screenshot above is from Chrome, but Internet Explorer and Firefox both have similar ways to indicate secure sites. For the phishing messages themselves, legitimate messages should generally have matching domains all around – where they were sent from, where any links go to, etcetera. Mere appearance of the email isn’t enough to judge, as very legitimate-looking emails have been used maliciously. We also encourage users to enable the two-factor authentication that Apple ID recently introduced, for added protection..."

Fake Microsoft Security Scam
- http://blog.webroot....-security-scam/
April 30, 2013 - "... we have seen an increase in fake Microsoft scams, which function by tricking people into thinking that their PC is infected. With these types of scams there are a number of things to remember.
1. Microsoft will never call you telling you that your PC is infected
2. Never allow strangers to connect to your PC
3. Do not give any credit card info to somebody claiming to be from Microsoft...
The current scam will display a webpage that is very similar to the one in Figure 1. There are a number of ways to figure out that this is a false alert. The first is that it’s a website message and not a program; the second is that the location of the web site will be a random string of letters.
1) https://webrootblog....owser_alert.jpg
More details: These websites will normally only stay active for 24-48hrs before they are pulled down. The websites’ primary function is to get you to run a “removal tool” called “security cleaner”. This file is the infection and, if ran, will infect the PC and start displaying pop-ups (like the one in Figure 2).

AutoIt malware - 188.161.9.226 ...
- http://blog.trendmic...e-and-toolsets/
May 6, 2013 - "... In addition to tools being found on sites like Pastebin and Pastie, we are also seeing a tremendous increase in the amount of malware utilizing AutoIt as a scripting language. One piece of malware that was found in the wild was particularly interesting. This malware is a variant of the popular DarkComet RAT – utilizing AutoIt. This variant runs a backdoor on the victim machine and communicates outbound to a nefarious host at shark18952012.no-ip .info (188.161.9.226 at the time of writing) over port 1604... In addition to this malware’s outbound communication, it also modifies the local software firewall policies to disable them, in addition to installing itself at startup for persistency... Upon execution of the malware, it immediately disables the Windows Firewall. After disabling the firewall, the malware then disables the ability to get into the registry of Windows to view or undo the changes performed... As scripting languages like AutoIt continue to gain popularity, we expect more of these types of malware to make a migration to using them. The ease of use and learning, as well as the ability to post code easily to popular dropsites make this a great opportunity for actors with nefarious intentions to propagate their tools and malware. We recommend continuing to update your Anti-Virus signatures as well as consider blocking access to Pastebin, Pastie and other code dropsites on your corporate network where applicable."

Fake AV and ransomware combo

8 May 2013 - "Ransomware and fake antivirus solutions are well-known threats, but a deadly fraudulent combination of the two has been recently spotted... The software - dubbed "Secure Bit" - first tries to convince the victims that the "security level" of their computer is low and instructs them to call for support so that the “threats” it has "found" can be removed. The claim is accompanied with a pop-ups that lists a great number of them. But if the victims don't do as they are told after a period of time, the fake AV turns nasty (well, nastier), and locks the computer screen. The victims can't do anything on their machine, and they are again told to contact the given phone number in order to regain control of it. The phone call reveals that it will cost the victims $49.99 to do that, and Total Defense's Tsahi Carmona warns* that many users may not recognize it's a scam and may pay the ransom..."

Phone phish ...
- https://www.ic3.gov/...013/130508.aspx
May 08, 2013 - "The Internet Crime Complaint Center has received numerous reports of phishing attacks targeting various telecommunication companies' customers. Individuals receive automated telephone calls that claim to be from the victim's telecommunication carrier. Victims are directed to a phishing site to receive a credit, discount, or prize ranging from $300 to $500. The phishing site is a replica of one of the telecommunication carrier's sites and requests the victims' log-in credentials and the last four digits of their Social Security numbers. Once victims enter their information, they are -redirected- to the telecommunication carrier’s actual website. The subject then makes changes to the customer's account.
The IC3 urges the public to be cautious of unsolicited telephone calls, e-mails and text messages, especially those promising some type of compensation for supplying account information. If you receive such an offer, verify it with the business associated with your account before supplying any information. Use the information supplied on your account statement to contact the business."

The attached document is RECEIPT428-586.doc which contains a CVE-2012-0158 / MS12-027 exploit, so a fully patched Windows system should be immune. Further analysis is pending, but the payload is likely to be P2P / Gameover Zeus as found in this attack*. VirusTotal detections stand at just 11/46**. Further analysis is pending.

Something evil on 94.242.198.16

14 May 2013 - "I'm not entirely sure what this is, I think it's an injection attack leading to a malware server on 94.242.198.16 (Root SA, Luxemburg) which is using various stealth techniques to avoid detection. This is what I'm seeing.. code is getting injected into sites referring to [donotclick]fryzjer .me/hpoxqnj.php (report*) or [donotclick]stempelxpress .nl/vechoix.php (report**) which (if called in the correct way) tries to forward the victim to

VirusTotal reports this as a bad IP***, and out of several domains associated with this IP, almost all are red-flagged by Google for malware. The site contains several subdomains of the following domains.. I would recommend the following blocklist:

Malicious FedEx SPAM delivers trojan ...

May 15, 2013 - "A new wave of malicious FedEx spam delivers Trojans instead of packages, infecting users with malware when opening the attachments. In the last couple months, the Gamarue Trojan has spread intensely in the US, Australia, Croatia, Romania, Iran, the UK, Germany and Spain...
Screenshot1: http://www.hotforsec...-packages-1.jpg
... To give credibility to the malicious payload, scammers added links to the authentic shipping company. Trojan.Gamarue silently installs itself on the system, sending sensitive information to the command and control center. The stolen data can then be used for identity theft and other cyber-criminal activities. Gamarue can also download and execute arbitrary files, performing updates without users noticing. The malicious software can also spread to removable drives, so users should be careful when managing important documents through USB devices...
Screenshot2: http://www.hotforsec...-packages-2.png
FedEx is a common target for cyber-criminals, who only change the bait from time to time. Other excuses to ship malware include parcel delivery notifications. Scammers also request money in return for delivery of a package by posing as representatives of the shipping service. They also go so far as to create spoofed web sites to collect usernames, passwords, Social Security Numbers, credit card details and more..."

16 May 2013 - This fake invoice email contains a malicious attachment:

Subject: invoice copy
Kindly open to see export License and payment invoice attached,meanwhile we sent the balance payment yesterday.Please confirm if it has settled in your account or you can call ifthere is any problem.ThanksKaren parker


The attachment is invoice copy.zip which in turn contains an executable invoice copy.exe which has an icon to make it look like a spreadsheet. VirusTotal results are a pretty poor 7/45* and indicate that this is a Zbot variant. The Comodo CAMAS report** indicates that the malware seems to be rummaging though address books and gives the following characteristics:
Size 331776
MD5 ebdcd7b8468f28932f235dc7e0cd8bcd
SHA1 a3d251b8f488ef1602e7016cb1f51ffe116d7917
SHA256 4b15971cf928a42d44afdf87a517d229e4aabbb5967cb9230a19592d2b939fe6
... The ThreatTrack report*** is nicely detailed and gives some details about network connections... As ever, blocking EXE-in-ZIP files at the perimeter is the best way to guard against this type of threat."

Get Free Followers! on Instagram? Get Free Malware, Survey Scams Instead
- http://blog.trendmic...-scams-instead/
May 16, 2013 - "The popular photosharing app Instagram is the latest social networking site targeted by the ubiquitous survey scams seen on Facebook and Twitter. This time, we found that these survey scams may also lead users to download an Android malware... these Instagram followers have repetitive account names like “Tawna Tawna” and “Concetta Concetta”... Given these suspicious signs, I then checked this “Get Free Followers” picture (which is actually clickable) and was led to this page that supposedly offers the “Get Followers” app. This app is detected by Trend Micro as ANDROIDOS_GCMBOT.A, which can be used to launch malicious webpages or send SMS from the device.
> http://blog.trendmic...rvey-scam-4.jpg
Whether users download the said app or not (in my case, I tried to), in the end they are redirected to your run-of-the-mill survey scams. Since Instagram can also be accessed via a PC, we tried to access the malicious website and survey scam using a desktop. Fortunately, this ruse didn’t work. Cybercriminals profit from these survey scams via ad-tracking sites, which users are redirected to before the actual survey page. Plus, these bad guys can also use the data gathered from these scams by either peddling them to other cybercriminal groups or using them in their future schemes. Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, and now Instagram. The people behind these scams are jumping on every popular networking sites and potential engineering hooks like the Google Glass contest. To protect yourself against this scam, you must always double-check posts on your social media accounts, even if they come from friends, family members, or known acquaintance.

Last Updated: 2013-05-17 - "Like with .biz, I sometimes have the impression that .su and .cc could be sinkholed in their entirety, because the bad domains seem to vastly outnumber whatever (if any) good is running under these TLDs as well. Earlier today, ISC reader Michael contacted us with information that several PCs on his network had started to communicate with iestats .cc, emstats .su, ehistats .su, e-protections .su and a couple other domains. I was pretty sure that I had seen the latter domain on an earlier occasion in a malware outbreak, but I couldn't find it in our records .. until I only searched for "e-protections", and found e-protections .cc. This domain had been implicated back in October 2012 in a malware spree that was linked to the nasty W32.Caphaw, a backdoor/information stealer... each infected box was apparently running a slightly different version of the EXE. Anti-Virus coverage is still thin (Virustotal*) , but the Heuristics of some products seem to be catching on. This sample looks more like a ransomware trojan than Caphaw, but we'll know more once we analyze all the information gathered so far..."

Blackhole Spam Run evades detection using Punycode
- http://blog.trendmic...using-punycode/
May 20, 2013 - "... we have seen a slew of spam crafted as a notice from the popular retail chain Walmart. However, this spam run offers something different.
> http://blog.trendmic...HEK-walmart.jpg
... some of the URLs lead to Cyrillic domain names. These domains were translated into the English alphabet through punycode. Punycode* is a way to convert Unicode characters into a smaller character set. URLs in punycode have to be decoded first in order to see its original format. The use of international domain names (IDNs) can pose additional security risks to users. Users can be redirected to a phishing page that appears to have the same URL as a legitimate site. IDNs also allow spammers to create more spam domains not limited to English characters. This can make blocking malicious sites more difficult. This technique is not new, but seeing punycode used in a BHEK email campaign is unusual. Users who click the links are redirected to several sites, until they are lead to the site hosting a malware (detected as TROJ_PIDIEF.SMXY), which exploits a in Adobe Reader and Acrobat (CVE-2009-0924) to download and execute other malware onto the vulnerable system. This attempt at evading detection is not surprising, given how 2013 is shaping up to be the year of refining existing tools. In our 1Q 2013 Security Roundup, we already noticed how dated threats like Asprox and banking Trojans like CARBERP were returning to the scene with new and improved features. We can expect this trend to continue this year, though new threats can always appear anytime soon..."

Oklahoma tornado charitable organization scams, malware, and phishing

Last Updated: 2013-05-21 17:09:55 UTC - "... Be very wary of any charity that is raising funds for victims of any disaster, particularly one that has -not- been around for very long. There are many legit charities, I would recommend sticking to ones you are already familiar with. The American Red Cross for example has been around for a long time, does amazing work, and is always in need of funding. They are just one example of a well established charity that does good work and is already involved in helping out in Moore, Oklahoma. Routine monitoring of newly registered domain names shows a number of brand new ones that have words like Oklahoma, Moore, tornado, recovery, help, assistance, and similar. I am certain that a number are registered by well meaning people, however I am equally sure that many are fake or scams. It does not take long for any recent newsworthy topic to be the subject line of phishing, malware, and scammers..."

Firstly, the email was sent to a scraped address from the website of the Slimeware Corporation and isn't any sort of opted-in address at all. The address of "75 Glandovey Terrace, Newquay, Cornwall TR8 4QD" simply does -not- exist, and the telephone number of 0843 289 4698 appears to belong to a completely -unrelated- company. I very much doubt there is anybody called "Emily Norton" involved, and there is no company in the UK with the name "Prospect Direct". The website prospectdirect .org itself carefully hides any contact details, the WHOIS details are anonymous, the domain was created on 2012-07-19 and is hosted on 109.235.51.98 (Netrouting / Xeneurope , Netherlands). There are no contact details on the website and there is no identifying information at all.. it hasn't just been omitted by accident, the whole thing has been left meticulously clean by a professional spamming outfit.

I would recommend giving these spammers a wide berth given their catalogue of lies."
