"PLEASE SEND PI" spam / something evil on

"PI" in this case seems to refer to a Proforma Invoice rather than Π - but in fact the attachment is malware.

Subject:      PLEASE SEND PI


Regarding our previous conversation about our urgent purchase, kindly
find attached PI and let us know if the quantity can fit in 40ft
kindly revise the Proforma invoice so that we can proceed with an
advance payment as agreed.

We look forward to your urgent response with revised proforma invoice.

Thks & Rgds,

It sounds like a fiendish maths question from an obscure exam. How much Π can you fit in a 40ft container? Anyway, the attachment Order.zip contains a malicious executable klopppp890.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 18/53. The ThreatExpert report [pdf] and ThreatTrack report [pdf] show that the malware phones home to walex2.ddob.us/sddob/gate.php on (OVH Canada reassigned to Big Kesh, LLC, US).

Looking at the domains registered on and the surrounding IPs there do seem to be a lot of malicious ones being used as malware C&Cs:

walex.ddob.us [1]
dino.ddob.us [2] [3]
walex2.ddob.us [4]
robert.xiga.us [5]
daniel.ddob.us [6]
robert.ddob.us [7]
frannky.ddob.us [9]
sayee.ddob.us [10]
dino.ddob.us [11] [12]

I think this is enough evidence to block the entire as a precaution (although there do appear to be a small number of legitimate sites too). For the record, this is suballocated to:

In the case of Big Kesh LLC I will be charitable and assume that this behaviour is happening without their consent.

The domains xiga.us and ddob.us appear to be used for purely malicious purposes, so I recommend that you block them. The registrant details are probably fake but here they are:
