"please update your blah@blah.blab mailbox" spam

Another version of the Zbot trojan coming in via email, much like this one.

From: operator@blah.blah Sent: 20 November 2009 15:21
To: Blah

Subject: please update your blah@blah.blah mailbox


Dear owner of the blah@blah.blah mailbox,
You have to change the security mode of your account, from standart to secure. Please change the security mode by using the link below:

http://accounts.blah.blah.verzzi.org.uk/webmail/settings/noflash.php?mode=standart&id=[snip]&email=blah@blah.blah

So far verzzi.co.uk and verzzi.org.uk seem to be domains that are used for this, there are probably many others.

Target page is a fake Flash download:

Target file is flashinstaller.exe with patchy or generic detection at best, according to VirusTotal.

ThreatExpert report is here which could be useful if you are trying to disinfect a machine.

When infected, the machine calls home to 193.104.27.42 in the Ukraine, allegedly belonging to "Vladimir Vasulyovich Kamushnoy" but that could be fake.

The Verzzi domains are hosted on a fast flux botnet, so the good news is that it won't be very reliable if some muppet DOES visit the site.

elkinsrealty.net is one nameserver domain, with obviously fake WHOIS details

ns1.winderz.net and ns1.elkinsrealty.net are on 198.177.253.152 (Allerion Inc, Altlanta)
ns2.elkinsrealty.net is on 210.217.15.41 (Korea Telecom)

In this case the email "came" from operator@victimdomain - filtering your own domain at the gateway (or the "operator" address) could be useful.

Now she's hitting me from verzzn.org.uk


Maybe "she" registered ALL the "verzz[*].org.uk domains!

Conrad Longmore said...

Oddly, not all the verzz* domains have been registered. The .be ones are even odder, can't see a patter there at all.

Jack said...

Yep just been hit by dirddrf.be, reported to the .be registry because you'll need good luck to find all of the multiple server locations.
