Fake 'list of missing documents' SPAM - malicious attachment
- http://blog.dynamoo....-finds-you.html
23 June 2015 - "This spam comes with a malicious attachment:
    Date:    23 June 2015 at 14:14
    Subject:    Hope this e-mail finds You well
    Good day!
    Hope this e-mail finds You well.
    Please be informed that we received the documents regarding the agreement No. 7232-003 dated from 3rd day of June.
    However there are some forms missing.
    We made the list of missing documents for Your ease (the list is attached below).
    Please kindly check whether these forms are kept in your records.
    In case you have any questions here are our contact details: 838-72-99. Feel free to give a call at any time.
    Stacey Grimly,
    Project Manager


Some of the details vary in each email, but the overall format is the same. So far I have seen two different mis-named attachments:
check.zip size=57747.zipsize=57747
check.zip size=57717.zipsize=57717
The file sizes actually -match- the one listed in the file's name. Because the attachment is not properly named, some ZIP file handlers may fail to deal with them. Equally, the technique may be designed to get the spam past mail filters. Each archive contains a file info_bank_pdf.exe with different checksums and a detection rate of 3/52* or 3/54**. Automated analysis tools... indicate traffic to the following locations:
93.93.194.202 (Orion Telekom, Serbia)
173.216.240.56 (Suddenlink Communications, US)
188.255.169.176 (Orion Telekom, Serbia)
68.190.246.142 (Charter Communications, US)
... Malwr reports... show dropped files named yaxkodila.exe (two versions, VT 5/54*** and 5/55****) plus a file jieduk.exe (VT 8/54)[5].... the VirusTotal analysis also throws up another IP address of: 104.174.123.66 (Time Warner Cable, US). The malware is a common combination of the Upatre downloader and Dyre banking trojan, targeting Windows systems.
Recommended blocklist:
93.93.194.202

Fake Bank of America Twitter Feed Leads to Phish ...
- https://blog.malware...-phishing-page/
June 24, 2015 - "Over the last day or so, a Twitter feed claiming to be a support channel for Bank of America has been sending links and messages to anybody having issues with their accounts. Here’s the dubious BoA Twitter account in question:
> https://blog.malware...oatwitfeed1.jpg
... In most cases, they direct people to a URL where they can supposedly fix their problems, which is
sclgchl1(dot)eu(dot)pn/index(dot)html
They’ve also been seen asking for credentials directly via DM (Direct Message). They appear to be using that classic Twitter -phishing- technique: look for people sending help messages to an official account, then inject themselves into the conversation:
> https://blog.malware...oatwitfeed2.jpg
Here’s a sample list of messages they’ve been sending to BoA customers:
> https://blog.malware...witterstorm.jpg
Some things to note: the Twitter account is -not- verified, and the page collecting personal information is not HTTPS secured which is never a good sign where sending banking credentials to someone is concerned. If you land on their page with JavaScript disabled, you’ll be asked to switch it on again:
> https://blog.malware...oatwitfeed3.jpg
The site asks for the following information: Online ID, Passcode, Account Number, Complete SSN or Tax Identification Number and Passcode. Once all of this information is entered, the victim is redirected to the real Bank of America website... At time of writing, the site is being flagged by Chrome for phishing:
> https://blog.malware...oatwitfeed7.jpg
We’ve also spotted another page on the same domain which looks like a half-finished Wells Fargo “Security Sign On” page:
> https://blog.malware...oatwitfeed8.jpg
We advise customers of BoA to be very careful where they’re sending account credentials – note that the official BoA Twitter feed has a -Verified- icon, and that small but crucial detail could make all the difference where keeping your account secure is concerned."

Samsung laptops deliberately disable Windows Update with bloatware
- http://www.theinquir...-with-bloatware
Jun 24 2015 - "... Samsung, in common with a number of manufacturers, has an app for finding the latest drivers and updates to, well, frankly, bloatware. In Samsung's case the app is called SW Updater. Samsung describes it thus: 'Find easy ways to install and maintain the latest software, protect your computer, and back up your music, movies, photos and files'... a teardown from Microsoft MVP Patrick Barker* has revealed that Samsung laptops -include- an executable file called Disable_Windowsupdate.exe which kind of explains itself really. What's really disturbing about this, as if it wasn't enough already, is that if you turn Windows Update back on, SW Updater goes back and turns it back -off- again..."

Instapaper App vulnerable to Man-in-the-Middle Attacks
- http://labs.bitdefen...middle-attacks/
June 23, 2015 - "... analyzed popular Android app Instapaper and found it can be vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks that could expose users’ signup/login credentials when they try to log in into their accounts. The vulnerability may have serious consequences, especially if users have the same password for more than one account, leaving them potentially vulnerable to intrusions.
The Problem: Instapaper allows users to save and store articles for reading, particularly for when they’re offline, on the go, or simply don’t have access to the Internet. The application works by saving most web pages as text only and formatting their layout for tablets or phone screens. Everyone who wants to use the application is required to sign-up and create an account to check out notes, liked articles or access other options. However, the vulnerability lies not in the way the application fetches content, but in the way it implements (or in this case, doesn’t implement) certificate validation. Although the entire communication is handled via HTTPS, the app performs no certificate validation. If someone were to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, he could use a self-signed certificate and start “communicating” with the application...
The Attack: If a user were to sign into his account while connected to a Wi-Fi network that’s being monitored by an attacker, his authentication credentials (both username and password) could easily be intercepted using any fake certificate and a traffic-intercepting tool...
Implications: While the attacker might seem to only gain access to your Instapaper account, most people use the same password for multiple accounts. A cybercriminal could try and use your Instapaper password to access your social media or email accounts. Studies have shown that more than 50% of users reuse the same password, so the chances are -better- than even that more than one account could be vulnerable if your Instapaper credentials have been stolen. We have notified the development team behind the Android Instapaper app about the found vulnerability, but they have yet to confirm when a fix will become available..."

SEC hunts hacks who stole corp emails to trade stocks
- http://www.reuters.c...N0P31M720150623
Jun 23, 2015 - "U.S. securities regulators are investigating a group of hackers suspected of breaking into corporate email accounts to steal information to trade on, such as confidential details about mergers, according to people familiar with the matter. The Securities and Exchange Commission has asked at least eight listed companies to provide details of their data breaches, one of the people said. The unusual move by the agency reflects increasing concerns about cyber attacks on U.S. companies and government agencies. It is an "absolute first" for the SEC to approach companies about possible breaches in connection with an insider trading probe, said John Reed Stark, a former head of Internet enforcement at the SEC. "The SEC is interested because failures in cybersecurity have prompted a dangerous, new method of unlawful insider trading," said Stark, now a private cybersecurity consultant. According to people familiar with the matter, the SEC's inquiry and a parallel probe by the U.S. Secret Service - which investigates cyber crimes and financial fraud - were spurred by a December report by security company FireEye Inc about a sophisticated hacking group that it dubbed 'FIN4'. Since mid-2013, FIN4 has tried to hack into email accounts at more than 100 companies, looking for confidential information on mergers and other market-moving events. The targets include more than 60 listed companies in biotechnology and other healthcare-related fields, such as medical instruments, hospital equipment and drugs, according to the FireEye report*..."

Dyre emerges as main financial Trojan threat
- http://www.theregist..._symantec_says/
25 Jun 2015 - "...  the masterminds behind the Dyre banking malware are putting in full five-day working weeks to maintain some -285- command and control servers handling stolen banking credentials. The malware is one of the worst in circulation using its fleet of command and control servers to handle the reams of bank account data blackhats steal using phishing websites. Symantec says* the attacks are confined largely to Europe outside of Russia and Ukraine where most of the command and control servers are located..."
* http://www.symantec....l-trojan-threat
23 Jun 2015 - "... After a number of recent takedowns against major financial threats such as Gameover Zeus, Shylock, and Ramnit, the threat posed by these groups has receded but Dyre has taken their place as one of the main threats to ordinary consumers. Detected by Symantec as Infostealer.Dyre, Dyre targets Windows computers and can steal banking and other credentials by attacking all three major web browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox). Dyre is a two-pronged threat. Aside from stealing credentials, it can also be used to infect victims with other types of malware, such as adding them to -spam- botnets... the number of Dyre infections began to surge a year ago and the attackers behind this malware have steadily improved its capabilities and continued to build out supporting infrastructure:
Dyre detections over time:
> http://www.symantec....031/Fig1_24.png
... Dyre is mainly spread using spam emails. In most cases the emails masquerade as businesses documents, voicemail, or fax messages. If the victim clicks-on-an-email’s-attachment, they are -redirected- to a malicious website which will install the Upatre downloader on their computer... In many cases, the victim is added to a -botnet- which is then used to power further spam campaigns and infect more victims..."

Web security subtleties and exploitation of combined vulnerabilities
- https://isc.sans.edu...l?storyid=19837
2015-06-25 - "The goal of a penetration test is to report all identified vulnerabilities to the customer. Of course, every penetration tester puts most of his effort into finding critical security vulnerabilities: SQL injection, XSS and similar, which have the most impact for the tested web application... what we exploit with the XSS vulnerability in the first place: typically the attacker tries to steal cookies in order to gain access to the victim’s session. Since here sessions are irrelevant, the attacker will not use XSS to steal cookies but instead to change what the web page displays to the victim. This can be used for all sorts of -phishing- exploits and, depending on the URL and context of the attack, can be even more devastating than stealing the sessions."

- http://blogs.cisco.c...ker#more-172509
June 24, 2015 - "... Attackers are constantly targeting user data and attempting to trick users into leaking sensitive information through phishing campaigns. These phishing attempts are targeting normal users who represent the customers of the various businesses being targeted. If the emails come through a work email, the user can take advantage of a layered approach to security that will usually indicate these attacks as spam or even malicious. Most home users, however, do not have the same layered security configuration on their home networks. Many of these phish also attempt to try to place time pressure on the user to get them to act quickly and without taking the time to think about what they are doing. Therefore, it is important for users to be constantly vigilant, and to remain -calm- when they receive that cleverly crafted phishing email. Users should always take time to think -before- revealing any sensitive information, whether it is on the phone, via email, or through the web..."

Fake Twitter Verification Profile leads to Phishing, Credit Card Theft
- https://blog.malware...dit-card-theft/
June 30, 2015 - "... we’ve come across a -bogus- Twitter account harbouring a nasty surprise for anybody taken in by their fakery. Twitter Feed “Verified6379″ claims to be an “Official Verification Page” with a link to a shortened Goo.gl URL. The site it directs visitors to is:
verifiedaccounts(dot)byethost9(dot)com/go(dot)html
Here’s the Twitter feed in question:
> https://blog.malware...ketwtverif0.jpg
... This week has seen 3,000+ click the link so far, with the majority of visitors coming from the US and UK. What do those with a thirst for verification see upon hitting the page? A rather nasty double whammy of phishing and payment information theft. First up, the -phish- which aks for Username, Password and Email along with questions about why the victim thinks they should be verified, if they’ve ever been suspended and how many followers they have. Note that once the accounts have been compromised, information such as follower count makes it easy for the phisher to work out which are the best ones to use to spread more malicious links:
> https://blog.malware...ketwtverif1.jpg
After this, the verification hunter will be presented with the below screen:
> https://blog.malware...ketwtverif2.jpg
The page reads as follows:
Congratulations! You are one step away from being verified, please understand we require each user to pay the $4.99 verification fee. Processing this fee allows us to verify your identity much faster.
Uh oh. They then go on to ask for card number, expiration date, CVV, name, address, phone number, state, country and zip code along with a confirmation email. There’s no way to know how many people completed all of the steps, but there’s potential here for the scammers to have made off with quite the haul of stolen accounts and pilfered payment credentials. Note that the so-called payment page doesn’t have a secured connection either, so if a third party happened to be snooping traffic and you were on an insecure connection there’d now be two people running around with your information instead of just one. We’ve seen a number of possibly related accounts pushing out similar links, all offline / suspended at time of writing. There’s sure to be others floating around, so please be careful with your logins... more information on Twitter Verification, you should read their FAQ page. From a related article:
'Twitter currently does -not- accept applications for verification. If we identify your account as being eligible, we will reach out to you to start the verification process'.
The only Twitter feed you should pay any attention to with regards the little blue tick is the Official Verification account – anybody else should be treated with caution, especially if asking for logins via Direct Message or websites asking for -credentials- and / or -payment- information..."

If you have the correct browser agent (e.g. Internet Explorer 8 on Windows) you will see a "Your document will download shortly.." notice. If you have something else, a fake -404- page will be generated:

The page then forwards to the real HMRC login page but attempts to dump a -malicious- ZIP from another source at the same time:
> https://2.bp.blogspo...0/fake-hmrc.png
In this case, the ZIP file was Document_HM901417.zip which contains a -malicious- executable Document_HM901417.exe. This has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/55* (identified as the Upatre downloader). Automated analysis... shows attempted traffic to 93.185.4.90 (C2NET, Czech Republic) and a dropped executable with a random name and an MD5 of ba841ac5f7500b6ea59fcbbfd4d8da32 with a detection rate of 2/55**. The payload is almost definitely the Dyre banking trojan.

Angler Exploit Kit pushing CryptoWall 3.0
- https://isc.sans.edu...l?storyid=19863
2015-07-02 - "... Recently, this EK has been altering its URL patterns on a near-daily basis. The changes accumulate, and you might not recognize current traffic generated by Angler... Angler pushes different payloads, but we're still seeing a lot of CryptoWall 3.0 from this EK.  We first noticed CryptoWall 3.0 from Angler near the end of May 2015:

Traffic from Tuesday, 2015-07-01 shows Angler EK from 148.251.167.57 and 148.251.167.107 at different times during the day..."

The 'Grey Side' of Mobile Advertising
- https://blog.malware...le-advertising/
July 2, 2015 - "... Mobile advertising is a headache because of its intrusiveness, the amount of bandwidth used, and other unexpected nefarious behaviors. I get it, there’s money to be made–the good guys are trying to sell us something, the bad guys are trying to steal something, and the grey guys are doing a little of both. Grey hats do their work in between the good and the malicious sides of computing and often push the limits of maliciousness when it comes to making a quick buck. Some advertisers have been pushing this grey line by using shady tactics in order to get app installs for some time now. These pay-per-install ad campaigns use the same scarevertising* messaging we see from malware authors like; “You are infected” or “System Alert.” Unlike -fake- alerts that lead to malware, these alerts often -redirect- to legitimate apps residing in Google’s Play Store, like battery saving and security type apps... Most of these ad campaigns use the same wording, images, and fake scans used by malware authors. Because of this, we wanted to spread the word to ignore these ads and hopefully take away some of their impact. Shutting them down and tracking their creators have been difficult. The ads don’t stick around long and Ad Networks have a difficult time preventing because of their small footprint compared to all the ‘good’ ad traffic–they get lost in the chaos.
Don’t fall for the bait. If you come across any of these -fake- messages you can back out of the page or close the tab to dismiss. If they persist it might be necessary to clear out browser history and cookies..."
