The Word document contains a malicious macro [pastebin] but is currently undetected at VirusTotal (the Malwr report doesn't say much but is here).

The macro then downloads http://ctmail.me/1.exe and executes it. This malicious binary has a a detection rate of 4/52, and according to the Malwr report it contacts the following URLs:

http://84.40.9.34/Xl37yRuH5LS6Nqk/~yNk%2C2IO.1Jw9/wm@OF0fR%2BPvics%2CR8H/br~%262O%2Cu3k%3FI~i7%2D

84.40.9.34 is Hostway in Belgium, 213.143.97.18 is Wien Energie, Austria. The malware also downloads a DLL as 2.tmp which has a detection rate of 3/54.

Recommended blocklist 1:
213.143.97.18

UPDATE 1 - 2014-11-03

A very similar email is doing the rounds this morning with a different version of the attachment (called ORDER-203-2083868-0173124.doc) which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 0/54 and contains this malicious macro [pastebin]. This downloads a file from http://hilfecenter-harz.de/1.exe which also has zero detections at VirusTotal. According the the Malwr report this binary connects to the following URLs:

http://84.40.9.34/E8Zf43JY1/8/wXw4M%26H~J%7EQ5/./
http://37.139.23.200/NQwFPhXiqAw/i27%24Yz~M%2CS_/x$%2DKWssW9Yh/L3

http://37.139.23.200/RqCGVww2Sup3iH5rZ/h=abyF$sO%3DheysYSV/n5%3Fs/

It also downloads a malicious DLL which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 7/54 which identifies this as a version of Cridex.

Recommended blocklist 2:
84.40.9.34
37.139.23.200
hilfecenter-harz.de
garfield67.de

UPDATE 2  - 2014-11-03

A second version of the attachment is also being circulated, this time with a slightly different macro [pastebin] which downloads the same binary as before from http://garfield67.de/1.exe. I have updated blocklist 2.

UPDATE 3 - 2014-11-06

The spam has been updated with a new date and there are now three new malicious Word documents [1] [2] [3] [Malwr report] which contains one of two macros [1] [2] that download a malware binary from one of the two following locations:

http://castours.com/js/bin.exe
http://www.irming.hr/js/bin.exe


This file is saved as %TEMP%\LNZMTDCWLZX.exe and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/53. The Malwr report shows that it connects to:

http://84.40.9.34/NjTrZuSH2&rb/@&RT/aATv%2BqGe%2C

It also drops a DLL which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 8/53 which is identified as Cridex.

"Further Reminder" spam has a malicious Word document attached

Another round of malicious Word documents today, this time with the subject "Further Reminder" from random senders. For example:

From:     Milan Roach
Date:     30 October 2014 11:35
Subject:     Further Reminder SN4215796

Good afternoon,

Please see attached statement sent to us, I have highlighted on this the payments made to you in full and attached a breakdown of each one for you to correctly allocate. Hope this helps.
Thanking you in advance.

Many Thanks & Kind Regards
Milan Roach

Senior Accounts Payable Clerk
Finance Department
Attached is a malicious Word document with the same name as the subject (e.g. CopySN4215796.doc). There are at least two different versions of this document [Version 1 VirusTotal / Malwr report, Version 2 VirusTotal / Malwr report]. If macros are enabled on the target machine then a malicious macro [pastebin] runs and downloads a futher component from one of the two following locations (there may be more):

http://81.7.3.101:8080/doc/6.exe
http://195.154.126.245:8080/doc/6.exe


This binary has a VirusTotal detection rate of 7/54 and the Malwr report shows it contacting the following URLs:

http://212.59.117.207/fJ5SAAWU%7EQh@T%7E/.c0ip%2D~wm&4iS$2%20/@sVAEx5n%2Dq2fhFR%2C2E3nTsY7CsJG

It also drops a file 2.tmp which is actually a DLL with a VirusTotal detection rate of 14/54 which identifies it clearly as a variant of  Cridex.

Recommended blocklist:
212.59.117.207
217.160.228.222
91.222.139.45
81.7.3.101
195.154.126.245

UPDATE: a contact tells me that this malware also connects to a config file at:
212.59.117.207:8080
91.222.139.45:8080
..so I have updated the blocklist above to include these.

"INVOICE 101760 from Power EC Ltd" spam

This spam supposedly comes from a company called Power EC Ltd, but it doesn't. Instead it come with a malicious Word document.

From:     soo.sutton77@powercentre.com
Date:     28 October 2014 11:01
Subject:     INVOICE 101760 from Power EC Ltd

Please find attached INVOICE number 224244 from Power EC Ltd

The invoice number varies, as does the name of the attachment but it will be similar to INVOICE101760.doc which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 5/53. This contains this malicious macro [pastebin] which attempts to download a file from http://Riccis.homepage.t-online.de/Testseite/js/bin.exe which is currently 404ing but I believe to be the same payload as this [virustotal].  The Malwr analysis for that file shows it communicating with the following URLs:

UPDATE 2014-11-12
Another version of this spam is doing the rounds, very similar in nature:

From:     soo.sutton@powercentre.com
Date:     12 November 2014 12:57
Subject:     INVOICE 224245 from Power EC Ltd

Please find attached INVOICE number 224245 from Power EC Ltd
I have only seen one version of this with a malicious attachment 14153.DOC which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/55, which contains this malicious macro [pastebin] which attempts to download a component from http://fruido.de/js/bin.exe to %TEMP%\XZLNXTMSJUX.exe but fortunately that download location is not working (however, there could well be other download locations).

UPDATE 2014-12-08
A further version of this spam run is under way, described here.

Randomly generated "invoice xxxxxx October" spam comes with a malicious Word document

There have been a lot of these today:

From:     Sandra Lynch
Date:     27 October 2014 12:29
Subject:     invoice 0544422 October

Please find attached your October invoice, we now have the facility to email invoices,
but if you are not happy with this and would like a hard copy please let me know.
New bank details for BACS payments are Santander Bank Sort Code 0544422 Account No 5600544422.
Thanks very much

Kind Regards


Sandra Lynch
The numbers in the email are randomly generated, as is the filename of the attachment (in this example it was invoice_0544422.doc).

The document itself is malicious and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 5/53. Inside the Word document is a macro [pastebin] that attempts to download an execute a malicious binary from http://centrumvooryoga.nl/docs/bin.exe which is currently 404ing which is a good sign.

There's a fair chance that the spammers will use this format again, so always be cautious of unsolicited email attachments.

Do people really fall for this?

Here's a simple phishing spam..
From:     info@kythea.gr
Date:     24 October 2014 13:50
Subject:     payment

this mail is to inform you that the payment have been made

Attached is a file payment Slip (2).html which displays a popup alert:
You have been signed out of this account this may have happened automatically cause the attachement needs authentication. to continue using this account, you will need to sign in again. this is done to protect your account and to ensure the privacy of your information
The victim then gets send to a phishing page, in this case at uere.bplaced.net/blasted/tozaiboeki.webmail.html which looks like this..

Ummm... do people really fall for this? The frightening answer is.. probably, yes.

Bitstamp.net "New bank details" spam

This fake email pretending to be from Bitstamp.net (a Bitcoin exchange) is meant to have a malicious payload (probably a Word document) but in the sample I have seen that payload is missing. However, if you receive a similar email then wth an attachment then it is probably malicious.

From:     Bitstamp.net [no_reply@bitstamp.net]
Date:     23 October 2014 14:48
Subject:     New bank details

New banking details

Dear Bitstamp clients,

We would like to inform you that Bitstamp now has new bank details, please check attached file.

We would like to assure those of you who sent deposits to our old details that our old IBAN is still active and your transfers, if otherwise sent with correct information, should arrive without a problem.

Please note that SEPA transfers usually take 1 to 3 business days to arrive and would kindly ask those waiting for your SEPA transfers longer than usually to please send us a transfer confirmation so that we can examine our bank account log and locate your transfers.

Also for those waiting on deposits we ask for your patience; we have accumulated a long list of transfers which lack information or contain wrong information which means we need to manually go through all of them instead of our system sorting them automatically.

Best regards
CEO, Nejc Kodrič
Bitstamp LIMITED
Despite the hype, very few people actually deal with Bitcoins and I suspect even fewer use this particular exchange, so I assume that the attackers in this case are very interested in targeting Bitcoin owners specifically.

Clicking the link goes to a script that detects if the visitor is running Windows, if so it downloads a file doc_9231-92_pdf.zip from the target system which in turn contains a malicious executable doc_9231-92_pdf.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/51.

The Malwr report for that binary shows it communicating with the following URLs:

"This email contains an invoice file attachment" spam contains poorly-detected malware

This fake invoice spam has a malicious Word document attached.

From:     Brittney Spencer , Customer service [Fitzgerald.79f7@host-77-242-217-170.telecomitalia.sm]
Date:     22 October 2014 12:46
Subject:     Reference:ZHO904856SU

 This email contains an invoice file attachment ID:ZHO904856SU



Thanks!

Brittney Spencer .
In this case the attachment was ZHO904856SU.doc which contains a malicious macro, however at the moment the document is showing a VirusTotal detection rate of 0/54.

Attempting to open the document gives the following message:

You didn't enable macros.
Content cant be visible.

..along with an embedded image to tell you how to turn macros off.

If the victim does this, then this malicious macro [pastebin] runs and downloads an executable from http://162.243.234.167:8080/gr/4.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of just 1/53.

The Malwr analysis shows this binary posting data to: http://178.250.243.114/IArej7rcO/@HPZ8A5aPU_W/

The 178.250.243.114 IP address is allocated to MajorDomo LLC, Russia. The executable also drops a malicious DLL using the name 2.tmp which also has a VirusTotal detection rate of 0/54.

Attached is a malicious Word document 15040BII3646501.doc which has a VirusTotal detection of 6/54. The Malwr report gives a little detail as to what it going on, but the crux of it is that if you have macros enabled then they will download and execute a malicious binary from http://gpsbah.com/images/1.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 11/53 and which the Malwr report  indicates then connects to the following URLs:

http://live.znicz-pruszkow.cba.pl/mandoc/js/bin.exe

This is also poorly-detected according to VirusTotal. The Malwr report for this shows that it reaches out to the following URL (again):

http://84.40.9.34/Xe0RBsy6nU2qow&nr7pGA%3DTWw./%7EwosMJ_V46G3/5Cqmr+6S/1ZzUf

It also drops a DLL identified by VirusTotal as Dridex.

beeg.com hacked (again)

Earlier this year I looked at a hack attack on popular porn site beeg.com (Alexa rank 429) which appeared to be something to do with a fake advertising agency that had bought ad space.

Well, it appear that beeg.com has been hacked again (as of yesterday) [1] [2] [3] and has been serving up an exploit kit (which appears to have been cleaned up now).

What's interesting about this attack are the domains in use, all using .CF (Central African Republic), .GA (Gabon), .ML (Mali) plus the more commonly abused .TK and .UNI.ME. The domains detected are listed at the end of this post, but they all appear to be dead now.

All the domains in question use nameservers using the domain rezupsell.com which uses an anonymous registration, but which itself uses reg3.ru nameservers which perhaps gives a clue as to the general origins of this attack.

The malicious hosts were based on the following IPs which might be worth blocking:

192.208.185.103 (Continuum Data Centers, US)
64.187.224.62 (Microglobe LLC, US)
64.251.19.156 (Infolink / Serverpronto, US)


(plain list for copy-and-pasting)
192.208.185.103
64.187.224.62
64.251.19.156

The domains that seem to be associated with this attack are as follows:

chcontaca.cf
ciscomphy.cf

Adobe Billing "Adobe Invoice" spam / adb-102288-invoice.doc

This fake Adobe spam has a malicious Word document attached.

From:     Adobe Billing [billing@adobe.com]
Date:     20 October 2014 11:33
Subject:     Adobe Invoice

Adobe(R) logo    
Dear Customer,
Thank you for signing up for Adobe Creative Cloud Service.

Attached is your copy of the invoice.
Thank you for your purchase.

Thank you,
The Adobe Team

Adobe and the Adobe logo are either registered trademarks or trademarks of Adobe Systems Incorporated in the United States and/or other countries. All other trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

Attached is a malicious Word document adb-102288-invoice.doc which has a VirusTotal detection rate of just 1/53, the Malwr report shows there are macros in the document then try to run when it is open. If macros are enabled, this then downloads and executes a malicious binary from http://pro-pose-photography.co.uk/fair/1.exe which also has a pretty poor detection rate of 2/53.

According to the Malwr report, this binary then reaches out to the following URLs:

http://62.75.182.94/66mAzAj8ko%2Ch$n=pS%3FgfE@%3Dx%7Efa/%24ysusij%2B%2C%2C%20kCbh2tc8ex%3Dnsgr_/%26

http://208.89.214.177/yr3=E~SS+/%2Df7Y.OZk3M/~Ww6A3~33YQ%24UT%3D

The IPs in question are 208.89.214.177 (Virpus, US) and 62.75.182.94 (Intergenia, Germany).

The Malware then drops another malicious binary 2.tmp (which looks like a DLL). The VirusTotal detection rate for this is only 1/54. The Malwr report is inconclusive.

eFax message from "02086160204" spam

The telephone number seems to very but is always in the 0208616xxxx format.

The link in the email goes to some random hacked WordPress site or other with a URL with a format similar to the following:

http://tadarok.com/wp-content/themes/deadline/mess.html
http://107.170.219.47/wp-content/themes/inove/mess.html
http://dollfacebeauty.com.au/wp-content/themes/landscape/mess.html

Then (if your user agent and referrer are correct) it goes to a fake eFax page at http://206.253.165.76:8080/ord/ef.html which does look pretty convincing. (Incidentally if the UA or referrer are not right you seem to get dumped on a pills site of naturaldietpills4u.com).


The download link goes to http://206.253.165.76:8080/ord/FAX_20141008_1412786088_26.zip which is a ZIP file containing a malicious executable FAX_20141008_1412786088_26.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/54.

The Malwr report is interesting because it contains many references to bacstel-ip which is the name of an online payment system used by UK businesses. The malware also contains the string
runas /profile /env /user:mydomain\admin "mmc %windir%\system32\dsa.msc
 If you are a sysadmin then you might recognise this as being the "Active Directory Users and Computers" admin tool. So, are the bad guys probing for sysadmins?

The malware connects to the following URLs:

http://212.59.117.207/yqqwe9mN5yoZJwBcwDqo0kTckoyNuHmw3cXoyRRFa/kaT1aBHyLi9Ne5TcaVNg3ik0NkDZ4ZqwwP/J9s1iNPmFwLiTgJuwky

I recommend blocking 107.170.19.156 (Digital Ocean, US), 212.59.117.207 (IO-Hosts Ltd, Russia) and 206.253.165.76 (Arachnitec, US)

188.165.214.6 is not surprisingly allocated to OVH France. In turn, it drops an executable bcwyw.exe (VT 6/54, Malwr report) which communicates with 66.102.253.25 (a China Telecom address located in the US in a Rackspace IP range) and also moxbk.exe (VT 1/52, Malwr report).

A bunch of .su and .ru domains leading to malware

These sites lead to some sort of malware. The presence of .SU domains hosted on what looks like a botnet is probably all you need to know. I haven't had much time to poke at these properly though, but I'd recommend watching out for these:

Barclays Bank "Transaction not complete" spam

This fake Barclays spam leads to malware.

From:     Barclays Bank [Barclays@email.barclays.co.uk]
Date:     16 October 2014 12:48
Subject:     Transaction not complete

Unable to complete your most recent Transaction.

Currently your transaction has a pending status. If the transaction was made by mistake please contact our customer service.


For more details please download payment receipt below:

http://essecisoftware.it/docs/viewdoc.php


Barclays is a trading name of Barclays Bank PLC and its subsidiaries. Barclays Bank PLC is authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority (Financial Services Register
No. 122702). Registered in England. Registered Number is 1026167 with registered
office at 1 Churchill Place, London E14 5HP.

Clicking on the link downloads a file document23_pdf.zip containing a malicious executable document23_pdf.scr which has a VirusTotal detection rate of  4/54. The Malwr report shows that it reaches out to the following URLs:

http://188.165.214.6:12302/1610uk1/HOME/0/51-SP3/0/
http://188.165.214.6:12302/1610uk1/HOME/1/0/0/
http://188.165.214.6:12302/1610uk1/HOME/41/5/1/
http://jwoffroad.co.uk/img/t/1610uk1.osa


In my opinion 188.165.214.6 (OVH, France) is an excellent candidate to block or monitor.

It also drops two executables, bxqyy.exe (VT 5/54, Malwr report) and ldplh.exe (VT 1/51, Malwr report)
.

"Shipping Information for.." spam uses a Google redirector and copy.com to distribute malware

This fake shipping spam contains malware.. although it appears that it may be buggy and might not install properly.

From:     fatmazohra.mekhalfia@groupehasnaoui.com
Date:     15 October 2014 15:09
Subject:     Shipping Information for [redacted]
      
Please see the shipping info
  
Processed on Oct 15/ 2014

This is to inform you that the package is being shipped to you. We also provided delivery terms to specified address.

Order number: 611541106
Order total: 3000.28 USD
Shipping date: Oct 16th 2014.


Please hit the button provided at the bottom to see more info about your package.

 Shipping Invoice

The link in the email goes to https://www.google.com/url?q=https%3A%2F%2Fcopy.com%2FEl9fd4VfLkfN%2FTrackShipment_0351.PDF.scr%3Fdownload%3D1&sa=D&sntz=1&usg=AFQjCNE0-3UrX7jNPzSGYodsQVzmBhrwMA which bounces through Google and then downloads a malicious executable TrackShipment_0351.PDF.scr which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/54.

The Malwr report indicates that the malware fails to install because of a bug in the code, a problem that also appears in all the other analysis tools that I tried.

What I think is meant to happen is that a malicious script [pastebin] that has been disguising itself as a GIF file which then renames a component Gl.png to Gl.exe and then attempts to execute it with the following command:
Gl.exe -pGlue1 -d%temp%
This executable has a VirusTotal detection rate of 2/53. It bombs out of automated analysis tools (see the Malwr report) possibly because it is being executed with the wrong parameters. It also opens a seemingly legitimate PDF file (VT 0/54) which is designed to look like a Commercial Invoice, presumably to mask the fact that it is doing something malicious in the background.


If you opened a file similar to this and you saw a PDF with a blank Commercial Invoice like the one pictured above, then you've probably been infected by the executable running in the background.

"Clean India" spam is an exercise in hypocrisy

"Clean India" is a meant to be a campaign to clean up Indian politics. But one of the biggest problems they have in India is spam (which lead to the long saga of Delhi minister Somnath Bharti's history of spam). So I think it is an act of sheer hypocrisy to promote this campaign through random spam.

Google sums up localcircles.com poor reputation nicely: We've found that lots of messages from localcirclesemail.com are spam.

As long as India tolerates spam and other dishonest business practices then I don't think that there's much change of them cleaning up their act. I think whoever is sending out this spam needs to look much closer to home before criticising others.

"To view your document, please open attachment" spam with a DOC attachment

This spam comes with a malicious DOC attachment:

From:     Anna [ºžô õö?ǯ#-øß {qYrÝsØ l½:ž±þ EiÉ91¤É¤y$e| p‹äŒís' ÀQtÃ#7 þ–¿åoù[þ–¿åoù[þ–¿åoù[þ–¿åÿ7 å{˜x|%S;ÖUñpbSË‘ý§B§i…¾«¿¨` Òf ¶ò [no-reply@bostonqatar.net]
Date:     14 October 2014 11:09
Subject:     Your document

To view your document, please open attachment.
The "From" field in the samples I have seen seems to be a random collection of characters. The DOC attachment is also randomly named in the format document_9639245.doc.

This word document contains a malicious macro [pastebin] which downloads an additional component from pro-pose-photography.co.uk/fair/1.exe. The DOC file has a VirusTotal detection rate of 0/55 and the EXE file is just 2/54.

I have not yet had time to look at the malicious binary, but the Malwr analysis is here.

UPDATE: among other things the malware drops the executable pefe.exe with a detection rate of 3/55. You can see the Malwr analysis here.

The order number changes in each version of the spam. Note the misplaced "}" in the title though.. that's not the only thing wrong with this spam.

Attached is a file with a random number and a DOC extension, but in fact it is a plain text attachment that begins:

Obviously something has gone wrong here, it looks like the attachment is Base 64 encoded when it shouldn't be, but running it through a decode still seems to generate nothing but junk.

My guess is that something has gone wrong with this spam run, and this is meant to be a malicious executable. As it stands, neither the original or decoded version trigger anything at VirusTotal [1] [2]. There's a good chance that the bad guys will figure this out and fix it though, so be cautious if you receive an unexpected email from Amazon.
