UPS Spam / UPS Invoice 74458652.zip

This fake UPS invoice has a malicious attachment:

From:      "UPSBillingCenter@ups.com" [UPSBillingCenter@ups.com]
Subject:      Your UPS Invoice is Ready


New invoice(s) are available for the consolidated payment plan(s) / account(s) enrolled in the UPS Billing Center. Download the attachment. Invoice will be automatically shown by double click.
Attached is a file UPS Invoice 74458652 which in turn contains a file called UPS Invoice {DIGIT[8]}.exe  which presumably isn't meant to be named like that..

The VirusTotal detection rate is a so-so 18/46. The Malwr analysis is that this is a trojan downloader that attempts to download bad things from the following locations:
[donotclick]gordonpoint.org/forum/viewtopic.php
[donotclick]mierukaproject.jp/PjSE.exe
[donotclick]programcommunications.com/WZP3mMPV.exe
[donotclick]fclww.com/QdytJso0.exe
[donotclick]www.lajen.cz/tPT8oZTB.exe

The VirusTotal detection rate for the downloaded file is not great at just 9/46.

The domain gordonpoint.org is a hijacked GoDaddy domain on 74.207.229.45 (Linode, US) along with several other hijacked domains which are listed below in italics.

Wells Fargo spam / WellsFargo_08232013.exe

This fake Wells Fargo spam has a malicious attachment:

Date:      Fri, 23 Aug 2013 09:43:44 -0500 [10:43:44 EDT]
From:      Morris_Osborn@wellsfargo.com

Please review attached documents.

In this case there is an attachment WellsFargo.victimname.zip which contains a malicious executable WellsFargo_08232013.exe (note the date is encoded into the filename). The VirusTotal detection rate is just 4/45, but the file itself is unusually small (just 21Kb unzipped, 8Kb zipped) when I would normally expect to see the executable closer to 100Kb for this sort of malware.

What does it do? Well, the automated reports show it rummaging through various browser and address book data, and the ThreatTrack report [pdf] shows a DNS lookup of the domain huyontop.com plus what appears to be some peer-to-peer activity. Malwr, Comodo CAMAS and Anubis are somewhat less enlightening.

The WHOIS details for the domain huyontop.com appear to be valid (I won't list them here, look them up if you want), however it was only registered a few days ago. I can't tell you exactly what it is doing, but I would treat huyontop.com as being potentially malicious and block it if you can.

"Remittance Docs 2982780" spam / Docs_08222013_218.exe

This fake Chase spam has a malicious attachment:

Date:      Thu, 22 Aug 2013 10:00:33 -0600 [12:00:33 EDT]
From:      Jed_Gregory [Jed_Gregory@chase.com]
Subject:      Remittance Docs 2982780

Please find attached the remittance 2982780.                                             
                                                            If you are unable to open the
attached file, please reply to this email        with a contact telephone number. The
Finance Dept will be in touch in          due course. Jed_Gregory
Chase Private Banking      Level III Officer

New York, NY 10036
T. 212.525.8865
F. 212.884.2034
The attachment is in the format Docs_victimdomain.com.zip which contains an executable Docs_08222013_218.exe (note that the date is encoded into the file). The VirusTotal detection rate for this is a moderate 16/46. The Malwr analysis shows that this is a Pony/Gate downloader which attempts to connect to the following URLs:
[donotclick]watch-fp.ca/ponyb/gate.php
[donotclick]www.jatw.pacificsocial.com/VSMpZX.exe
[donotclick]richardsonlookoutcottages.nb.ca/Q5Vf.exe
[donotclick]idyno.com.au/kvdhx2.exe

The downloader then downloads a second part with a much lower detection rate of 6/46. This appears to be a Zbot variant, and the Malwr analysis for that component is here.

The Pony/Gate component is hosted on 72.5.102.146 (Nuclear Fallout Enterprises, US) and is a hijacked GoDaddy domain, one of several on that server and listed below in italics.

The link in the email uses the Twitter redirection service to go to [donotclick]t.co/9PsnfeL8hh then [donotclick]x.co/1neIk then [donotclick]activegranite.com/vocatives/index.html and finally to a set of three scripts as follows:
[donotclick]02aa198.netsolhost.com/frostbite/hyde.js
[donotclick]96.9.28.44/dacca/quintilian.js
[donotclick]cordcamera.dakisftp.com/toothsome/catch.js

From this point the victim ends up at the malicious payload at [donotclick]abemuggs.com/topic/able_disturb_planning.php which is a hijacked GoDaddy domain hosted on 74.207.253.139 (Linode, US).

At the moment, I can only see abemuggs.com active on 74.207.253.139, however other domains in the same GoDaddy account may be hijacked as well. If you see unexpected traffic going to the following domains then it may be malicious:
abemuggs.com
abesmugs.com
abemugs.com
andagency.com
mytotaltitle.com

I would strongly recommend the following blocklist:

"You have received a secure message" spam / securedoc.zip

This fake Citi spam contains a malicious attachment:

Attached is a file securedoc.zip which in turn contains a malicious executable securedoc.exe which has a very low detection rate at VirusTotal of just 2/46. The Malwr analysis (and also ThreatExpert) shows that the file first connects to [donotclick]frankcremascocabinets.com/forum/viewtopic.php (a hijacked GoDaddy domain on 184.95.37.102 (Secured Servers, US / Jolly Works Hosting, Philippines) as seen before here, and it then tries to downoad additional components from:

[donotclick]ftp.ixcenter.com/GMMo6.exe
[donotclick]faithful-ftp.com/kFbWXZX.exe

This second part has another very low VirusTotal detection rate of just 3/46. Malwr gives an insight into what the binary is doing, or alternatively you can look at the Comodo CAMAS report or ThreatExpert report

The spam that I have seen appears to originate primarily from IP addresses in India.

So, what's up with MONK? The stock has only been trading since June and most of that time it has been at around the $1.00 level. At the beginning of August the price dropped to $0.40 and then $0.20 per share (dropping for one point to just $0.10), losing more than 75% of its value since launch (see the stock chart here).


On 16th August there was a flurry of activity as 209,400 shares were bought at around the $0.20 or somewhat under that. Usually this is the spammers taking up a position in the company that they are about to spam. On the next day (a Saturday) the pump-and-dump spam started. So far today about 450,000 shares have been traded, apparently giving the stock a bit of a bump as whoever has hired the spammers tries to cash out.

As with all pump-and-dump spams, the only people making money out of it are the scammers who run it. Any investor who tries to try to invest in these it likely to lose some or all of their investment. Avoid

Malekal.com Joe Job part II

There has been a Joe Job being run against Malekal.com for some time now. However, the joe job has now morphed and includes a reference to this blog (which is kind of annoying).

Date:      Sun, 18 Aug 2013 14:35:33 +0300 [08/18/13 07:35:33 EDT]
Subject:      Email SPAM for malekal.com

Theses emails SPAM are sent from a botnet (check the mails headers), im not
responsible of theses spam emails.
Someone is probably trying to get the site blacklisted or to get bad reputation
(called this "a Joe Job" - see :
http://blog.dynamoo.com/2013/08/malekalcom-joe-job.html )

The responsible is " Reveton Guy ", try to get revenge after a mass shutdown of
their malvertising :

http://www.malekal.com/2013/07/30/en-juicyads-reveton-malvertising/
http://www.malekal.com/2013/07/28/en-plugrush-reveton-malvertising/
http://www.malekal.com/2013/07/26/en-reveton-adxpansion-com-malvertising/

The August 11, they tried to get my website blacklisted using hacked website :
http://www.malekal.com/2013/08/12/en-reveton-go-now-by-hacked-website/
This is rather more subtle than the previous Joe Job, as it appears to be from the Malekal administrator themselves. However, it is being sent by a botnet (probably the same botnet sending the original spam) and is just another way to cause trouble.

These spam emails are tightly targeted to addresses that are most likely to make complaints. If you are going to report these, then I'd appreciate it if you would report the sending IP only rather than just copy-and-pasting all the links in.

"California Human Right Foundation CHRF USA" scam email

It's hard to say whether or not this scam is simply a version of the advanced fee fraud (you can come to the conference, but there will be fees and hotel charges), or if the idea is that you go down to Senegal and get kidnapped. In any case, this is a scam send to an email address scraped from the web via a hijacked email account in Indonesia. Similar scams have been seen before. Avoid.

ADP spam / ADP_week_invoice.zip|exe

This fake ADP spam has a malicious attachment:

Date:      Fri, 16 Aug 2013 09:57:59 -0500 [10:57:59 EDT]
From:      "run.payroll.invoice@adp.com" [run.payroll.invoice@adp.com]
Subject:      ADP Payroll INVOICE for week ending 08/16/2013

Your ADP Payroll invoice for last week is attached for your review. If you have any
questions regarding this invoice, please contact your ADP service team at the number
provided on the invoice for assistance.

Thank you for choosing ADP Payroll.
Important: Please do not respond to this message. It comes from an unattended mailbox.
There is an attachment ADP_week_invoice.zip which in turn contains a malicious executable file ADP_week_invoice.exe. The payload is exactly the same as this other malicious spam run which is running in parallel.

"CEO Portal Statements & Notices Event" spam / report_{DIGIT[12]}.exe

This fake Wells Fargo email has a malicious attachment:

Date:      Fri, 16 Aug 2013 09:51:17 -0500 [10:51:17 EDT]
From:      Wells Fargo Event Messaging Admin [ofsrep.ceosmuigw@wellsfargo.com]
Subject:      CEO Portal Statements & Notices Event


Wells Fargo

Commercial Electronic Office (CEO) Portal Statements & Notices Event: Multiple Download Request Available

Your Deposit Adjustment Notices is now available. To access your information please download attached report and open Statements & Notices file.
Date/Time Stamp:    Fri, 16 Aug 2013 09:51:17 -0500
Request Name:    MM3P85NRLOXLOFJ
Event Message ID:    S045-77988311

Please do not reply to this email.

The email has an attachment called report_625859705821.zip which in turn contains an exectuable report_{DIGIT[12]}.exe (which presumably is an error) which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 9/46. The Malwr report shows that this malware does various things, inclding an HTTP request to a hijacked GoDaddy domain at [donotclick]hubbywifeco.com/forum/viewtopic.php hosted on 66.151.138.80 (Nuclear Fallout Enterprises, US) which is shared with another hijacked domain, hubbywifecakes.com.

From there, another executable is downloaded from one of the following locations:
[donotclick]208.106.130.52/39UvZmv.exe
[donotclick]demoscreactivo.com/DKM9.exe
[donotclick]roundaboutcellars.com/Utuw1.exe
[donotclick]bbsmfg.biz/VKPqrms.exe

This executable has an even lower detection rate of just 5/46. You can see the Malwr report for that here.

Blocking EXE-in-ZIP files like this at your perimeter is an excellent idea if you can do it.

"INCOMING FAX REPORT" spam / chellebelledesigns.com

A facsimile transmission. How quaint. Of course, it isn't.. the link in the spam goes to a malicious page on chellebelledesigns.com:

Note that the spam appears to come "from" the "Administrator" in the victim's own domain. This email address is a forgery, so don't worry about it. If you are daft enough to click the link in the email you go to a legitimate hacked site and then on to one of three scripts:
[donotclick]millionaireheaven.com/mable/rework.js
[donotclick]pettigrew.us/airheads/testier.js
[donotclick]www.situ-ingenieurgeologie.de/tuesday/alleviation.js

from there on, the victim is forwarded to a malicious landing page at [donotclick]chellebelledesigns.com/topic/conclusion-western.php using a hacked GoDaddy domain on 173.246.104.55 (Gandi, US). There are other hijacked GoDaddy domains on the same server (listed in italics below):

Something evil on 162.211.231.16

The server at 162.211.231.16 (IT7 Networks, Canada) is currently being used in injection attacks (example) which have been going on for some time [1] [2] and uses several domains, some of which are listed below.

The WHOIS details for these domains seem to be consistent but are possibly fake:

Registrant ID:CR148448937
Registrant Name:Leonardo Salim Chahda
Registrant Street1:Patron 6755
Registrant Street2:
Registrant Street3:
Registrant City:Capital Federal
Registrant State/Province:Buenos Aires
Registrant Postal Code:1408
Registrant Country:AR
Registrant Phone:+46.444407
Registrant Phone Ext.:
Registrant FAX:
Registrant FAX Ext.:
Registrant Email:info@brigitteunderwear.com


All the domains are very recently registered by GoDaddy. The WHOIS details for brigitteunderwear.com (also registered by GoDaddy in 2006) are consistent, but I've seen enough hijacked GoDaddy domains recently to be suspicious that there could be an element of identity theft here, and the named person may well have nothing to do with this attack.

I haven't had time to poke around at the payload too much, but this could well be a good IP to block, or alternatively use the list of domains that I have identified below (it may not be comprehensive, though)

ADP spam / hubbywifeburgers.com

This fake ADP spam leads to malware on hubbywifeburgers.com:

Date:      Wed, 14 Aug 2013 08:58:12 -0700 [11:58:12 EDT]

ADP Security Management Update

Reference ID: 39866

Dear ADP Client August 2013

This message is to inform you of the upcoming �Phase 2� enhancement to ADP Security Management (formally ADP Netsecure). This is where you manage your users� access to ADP�s Internet services, and includes the self-service registration process.

Please review the following information:

� View the Supported Browsers and Operating Systems, listed here. These are updated to reflect more current versions to ensure proper presentation of the updated user interface. It is important to note that the new ADP Security Management is best accessed using Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 8 or Mozilla Firefox Version 3.6, at minimum.

This email was sent to active users in your company that access ADP Netsecure with a security role of �security master� or �security admin�.

Yeah.. click the link. What could possibly go wrong? Well, first you go to a legitimate hacked site that tried to load one of the following three scripts:

[donotclick]e-equus.kei.pl/perusing/cassie.js
[donotclick]cncnc.biz/pothooks/addict.js
[donotclick]khalidkala.com/immigration/unkind.js

From there, the victim is sent to a malware site that uses a hijacked GoDaddy domain at [donotclick]hubbywifeburgers.com/topic/nearby-promptly.php hosted on 199.195.116.51 (A2 Hosting, US - report here). This IP probably contains other hijacked domains from the same owner.

Gmail Compose.. another app screwed up by Google

If you use Gmail then you've probably seen the "new compose" experience before. And turned it off. Well, Google never listed to feedback now Gmail joins a long list of applications that Google have screwed up, including Blogger, Google Play Music, Google Maps for Android and don't get me started on Google Reader and iGoogle.


The new compose experience attempts to be minimalist, but in reality it's either too small, or too big. If you are reply to a message then you get a tiny box at the bottom of the screen, a long way from the top of the email you are trying to reply to. And all the usual buttons have been hidden away because.. well, goodness only knows. It's a mess.

With these latest bodged updates, I really think that Google is jumping the shark and changing applications for no good reason at all. Android in particular is becoming a disaster area with important apps being screwed up completely. Perhaps it's time to buy a Lumia?

The detection rate for this initial malware is just 9/45 at VirusTotal.

This is a pony/gate downloader [1] which attempts to download from [donotclick]guterprotectionperfection.com/ponyb/gate.php on 192.81.135.132 (Linode, US). This is the same IP as used in this attack, and it also utilises a hijacked GoDaddy domain.

The download then attempts to download a second stage from the from the following locations [2] (as well as installing all sorts of hooks into your system):
[donotclick]Missionsearchjobs.com/D5F7G.exe
[donotclick]betterbacksystems.com/kvq.exe
[donotclick]www.printdirectadvertising.com/vfMJH.exe
[donotclick]S381195155.onlinehome.us/vmkCQg8N.exe

The second stage has an even lower detection rate of just 3/45. The analyses by Comodo CAMAS and Malwr do give some detail as to how this part infects the target system.

CNN: " Canadian teenager Rehtaeh Parsons" spam leads to malware

The bad guys don't have much of a sense of shame. This fake CNN email leads to malware on hubbynwifewines.com:

2 face charges in case of Canadian girl who hanged self after alleged rape
By Stephanie Gallman and Phil Gast, CNN
updated 6:39 AM EDT, Fri August 9, 2013
Canadian teenager Rehtaeh Parsons, who was allegedly gang-raped and bullied, has died, her family said. Parsons, 17, was hospitalized after she tried to hang herself on Thursday, April 4. The high school student from Halifax, Nova Scotia, was taken off life support three days later.

Canadian teenager Rehtaeh Parsons

Two 18-year-old men face child pornography charges in connection with the case of a 17-year-old girl who hanged herself after she was allegedly gang-raped and bullied online, Canadian authorities said Thursday evening.  Full story >>

The link in the email goes through a legitimate but hacked site and ends up running one of three scripts:

[donotclick]ftp.adaware.net/earwax/philosophic.js
[donotclick]hargobindtravels.com/coloratura/nesting.js

The victim is then sent to a malware payload site at [donotclick]hubbynwifewines.com/topic/able_disturb_planning.php which is a hacked GoDaddy domain hosted on 72.249.76.197.

The initial file is just a trojan downloader. VirusTotal results are 10/45. The Malwr analysis gives some excellent details of what is going in, included attempted downloads from the following locations:

This downloads a Zeus variant with a very low detection rate of 4/45. The Malwr analysis for this part shows some apparent peer-to-peer traffic (note some of these IPs are legitimate and belong to Google):
