Evil network: RONET / ro-net.eu (91.229.90.0/23)

RONET (aka. ro-net.eu) seems to be a new netblock occupying the 91.229.90.0/23 (91.229.90.0 - 91.229.91.255) range. This block has several sites recently moved from Netserv Consult SRL (who have a very bad reputation), all of which appear to be involved in criminal activity.

Although the number of sites is very low at present (just 30), the use of a /23 block indicates the perhaps this will be used for more sites very soon. Blocking 91.229.90.0/23 preemptively would probably be an excellent idea.

Here are some examples of evilness:

bywordelectronics.com [91.229.90.11]
Money mule scam / fake jobs [1] [2] [3] [4]

admagnet1.com [91.229.90.35]
Malware distribution [5] [6] [7]

eyebluster-sv1.com [91.229.90.37]
Malware distribution [8]  [9]

Other domains are registered with fake WHOIS details which is never a good sign.

The 91.229.90.0/23 range is registered to:

Of note is the fact that ro-net.eu was only registered two weeks ago with anonymous registration details. Also, note that although the address is in Hungary, the RONET name would indicate that it still has a ROmanian connection.

Another oddity is that the network announces itself as part of AS17088 which is allocated to Currenex, Inc. There seems to be no connection at all between Currenex, Inc and RONET, so perhaps this is an error or some kind of forgery.
