Attached is a .7z archive file with a name that matches the one quoted in the subject line. So far I have seen just two versions of this, each containing a malicious script (sample here and here). These scripts have a detection rate of about 13/58 and they can been seen attempted to download a component from:

ahlbrandt.eu/IUGiwe8?
fulcar.info/p66/IUGiwe8
accuflowfloors.com/IUGiwe8?
aetozi.gr/IUGiwe8?
agricom.it/IUGiwe8?


An executable is dropped (Locky ransomware) with a detection rate of 18/64. Although Hybrid Analysis [1] [2] clearly shows the ransomware, no C2s are currently available (it turns out there aren't any).

UPDATE - additional download locations:
81552.com/IUGiwe8

All the versions I have seen contain those same formatting errors. Details vary from message to message (e.g. carrier, reference numbers). Attached is a malicious ZIP file (e.g. ORDER-608-0848796-6857907.zip) containing a malicious javascript file (e.g. F-9295287522-9444213500-201611165156-2601.js) that looks like this.

Malware spam: "Credit details ID: 87320357" leads to Teslacrypt

So many Teslacrypt campaigns, so little time... I've had to rely on third party analysis on this particular one (thank you!)
From:    Ladonna feather
Date:    14 March 2016 at 14:50
Subject:    Credit details ID: 87320357

Your credit card has been billed for $785,97. For the details about this transaction, please see the ID: 87320357-87320357 transaction report attached.

NOTE: This is the automatically generated message. Please, do not reply. 
Send names, references and attachment names vary. The malicious scripts in the attachment attempt to download from:

giveitallhereqq.com/69.exe?1
washitallawayff.com/69.exe?1
giveitallhereqq.com/80.exe?1
washitallawayff.com/80.exe?1


This is Teslacrypt ransomware with VirusTotal detection rates of 1/57 [1] [2]. The malware attempts to phone home to:

198.1.95.93/~deveconomytravel/cache/binstr.php
kel52.com/wp-content/plugins/ajax-admin/binstr.php

The download locations for the executable files can all be considered as malicious:

54.212.162.6 (Amazon AWS, US)

5.166.207.194 (ER-Telecom Holding, Russia)
46.172.219.246 (Krym Infostroy Ltd, Ukraine)

Out of these, only the first three (for giveitallhereqq.com) appear to be static IPs, the others (for washitallawayff.com) are dynamic and are likely part of a botnet, so blocking the domain might be better.

Subject:    Debt #85533 , Customer Case Nr.: 878

Dear Customer,

Despite our constant reminders, we would like to note that the mentioned debt #85533 for $826,87 is still overdue for payment.

We would appreciate your cooperation on this case and ask you to make the payment as soon as possible.

Unless the full payment is received by April 1st, 2016 this case will be transferred to the debt collection agency, will seriously damage your credit rating.
Please, find the attachment enclosed to the letter below.

We hope on your understanding.

Kind regards,

Malware spam: "Urgent Notice # 78815053" leads to Teslacrypt

This spam comes from random senders, and has random references, dollar amounts and attachment names:

From:    Donnie emily
Date:    12 March 2016 at 14:01
Subject:    Urgent Notice # 78815053

Dear Customer!

According to our data you owe our company a sum of $452,49. There are records saying that you have ordered goods in a total amount of $ 452,49 in the third quarter of 2015.

Invoice has been paid only partially. The unpaid invoice #78815053 is enclosed below for your revision.

We are writing to you, hoping for understanding and in anticipation of the early repayment of debt.

Please check out the file and do not hesitate to pay off the debt.

Otherwise we will have to start a legal action against you.

Regards,
Donnie emily

Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file, in the sample I have seen they begin with:
  • letter_
  • confirm_
  • access_
  • unconfirmed_operation_
  • operation_
  • details_
..plus a random number. There may be other formats. Inside is a malicious script beginning with:
  • details_
  • post_
  • mail_
..plus a random string of characters. I have seen six versions of this script, I do not know how many there are in total. VirusTotal results show detection rates between 4 and 7 out of 57 [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] and automated analysis tools [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] show the script attempting to download a binary from:

bonjovijonqq.com/69.exe?1
bonjovijonqq.com/80.exe?1


This is Teslacrypt ransomware, although it is possible that some variants of this message may drop Locky. Both these binaries are slightly different (VirusTotal results [19] [20]) and they appear to phone home to:

vtechshop.net/wcspng.php
sappmtraining.com/wp-includes/theme-compat/wcspng.php
shirongfeng.cn/images/lurd/wcspng.php


It also attempts to contact the domain multibrandphone.com but that was not resolving at the time of analysis. It also appears to phone home to:

91.234.32.192 (FOP Sedinkin Olexandr Valeriyovuch, Russia)


The domain bonjovijonqq.com is purely malicious and is hosted on the following IPs:

This executable has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/55, the MD5 is 592899e0eb3c06fb9fda59d03e4b5b53. The Hybrid Analysis report shows the malware attempting to POST to mlewipzrm.in which is multihomed on:

89.163.249.75 (myLoc managed IT AG, Germany)
188.209.52.228 (BlazingFast LLC, Ukraine / NForce Entertainment, Romania)
95.173.164.212 (Netinternet Bilgisayar ve Telekomunikasyon San. ve Tic. Ltd. Sti., Turkey)


The nameservers for mlewipzrm.in are NS1.REBELLECLUB.NET and NS2.REBELLECLUB.NET which are hosted on the following IPs:

210.110.198.10 (KISTI, Korea)
52.61.88.21 (Amazon AWS, US)


These nameservers support the following malicious domains:

deseondefend.com
xonstensetsat.com
dledisysteming.com
thecertisendes.com
georgino.net
tangsburan.net
rebelleclub.net
helpagregator.net

The download location uses a pair of nameservers, NS1.MOMEDEFER.PW and NS1.PRIZEBROCK.PW. If we factor in the NS2 servers as well, we get a set of malicious IPs:

5.135.237.209 (OVH, France)
196.52.21.11 (LogicWeb, US / South Africa)
75.127.2.116 (Foroquimica SL / ColoCrossing, US)


These nameservers support the following malicious domains:

An analysis of reported Equation Group IP ranges and domains

There has been a lot of buzz this morning about "The Equation Group", a possible state actor involved in placing malware on hard disks [1] [2] [3] [4].

Securelist (in conjunction with Kaspersky) published a list of domains and IPs to do with this malware, but with very little information about where they were hosted. After all, if they a hosted in a shed next to the bus station in Tiraspol or some underground complex buried under Wutong Mountain, then it's a rather different proposition from some secretive organisation in Washington DC.

Securelist post a number of hardcoded IPs as well as some domain names. Kaspersky have sinkholed some of the domains, and I can see one other active sinkhole. At least one of the domains is parked. Some of the domains look like they are not in use.

The data I collected can be found here, but before you use any of it, I will explain in more detail so you can use it prudently.

There are several web hosts and networks involved, all over the world. Some seem to have a higher certainty of involvement than others. In most cases, the Equation Group have rented a bunch of servers with contiguous IP addresses (I call this the "Equation Range") which is the one that I recommend you monitor. Some web hosts have other suspect IP addresses in the same neighbourhood, but in order to keep things simple I am not going into that.

(Updated 18/2/15 to remove an OpenDNS sinkhole and add 41.222.35.70)

FLAG Telecom / Reliance Globalcom

62.216.152.64/28
80.77.2.160/27
80.77.4.0/26

Allegedly a partner of the NSA and GCHQ, these IP addresses appear to be in the UK, US and Egypt (I would doubt the accuracy of the WHOIS data for the last one). In addition to apparently hardcoded IPs, they also host:

team4heat.net
forgotten-deals.com
phoneysoap.com
cigape.net
mimicrice.com
charmedno1.com
functional-business.com
rehabretie.com
advancing-technology.com
crisptic01.net
tropiccritics.com
cribdare2no.com
following-technology.com
teatac4bath.com

Verizon

194.229.238.80/28
195.108.238.128/30
195.128.235.225/28
202.95.84.32/27
210.81.52.96/27
212.177.108.192/27

Another company with a long history with the NSA, these Verizon IPs are all located outside the United States, specfically the Netherlands, Singaporre, Japana and Italy. In addition to hardcoded IPs, they are hosting:

honarkhaneh.net
meevehdar.com
parskabab.com
ad-noise.net
ad-void.com
aynachatsrv.com
damavandkuh.com
fnlpic.com
monster-ads.net

honarkhabar.com
techsupportpwr.com
webbizwild.com
zhalehziba.com

Global Telecom & Technology Americas Inc. / Cogent / PSInet

149.12.71.0/26

This Cogent customer has at least four different IPs hosting Equation Group servers. The following domains are hosted:

avidnewssource.com
rubi4edit.com
listennewsnetwork.com
unite3tubes.com

Colombia: Alfan Empaques Flexibles S.A. / Columbus Networks / IFX Networks / Terremark

64.76.82.48/28
190.242.96.208/28
190.60.202.0/28
190.60.202.0/28
190.60.202.0/28

The relationship between the US and Colombia is difficult, with the former spying on the latter extensively. Why there should be a cluster of servers in Colombia connected with this is a mystery. In addition to hardcoded IPs, the following domains are hosted in Colombia:

selective-business.com
technicalconsumerreports.com
technicaldigitalreporting.com
technology-revealed.com
melding-technology.com

Czech Republic: Master Internet / IT-PRO / 4D Praha

81.31.36.160/28
81.31.34.174
81.31.34.175
81.31.38.160/27

A group of three internet companies (possibly using the same infrastructure) also appear to be involved. All these IPs appear to be in the city of Brno, which is also home to the Czech National Cyber Security Center. Coincidence? The following domains can be found on Czech IPs in addition to hardcoded addresses:

islamicmarketing.net
noticiasftpsrv.com
coffeehausblog.com
platads.com
nickleplatedads.com
arabtechmessenger.net

Spain: Terremark / GTT Global Telecom

84.233.205.96/27
84.233.205.160/28
195.81.34.64/27
84.233.205.32/28
85.112.1.80/28


Terremark also provide hosting services for Equation in Colmbia, and of course Spain is a long-time ally of the United States and United Kingdom. Web sites hosted:

businessedgeadvance.com
business-made-fun.com
rampagegramar.com
unwashedsound.com
businessdealsblog.com
industry-deals.com
itemagic.net
posed2shade.com

rubiccrum.com
rubriccrumb.com

Netherlands: Tripartz-Atrato / IX Reach / Claranet / FiberRing

212.61.54.224/27
87.255.34.240/28
87.255.38.0/28
89.18.177.0/27
80.94.78.53
80.94.78.109

In addition to Verizon, four other Netherlands companies are hosting Equation Group servers. The Netherlands is another long-time ally of the US and UK.

arm2pie.com
businessdirectnessource.com
housedman.com
taking-technology.com
micraamber.net

124.217.250.128/27
124.217.253.61
124.217.253.64/29

Often appearing to be a "go-to" company if you want to set up a Black Hat reseller, these domains and IPs look like they have been picked up as part of a commercial offering.

roshanavar.com
adsbizsimple.com
bazandegan.com

  • Vox Telecom in South Africa hosts mysaltychocolateballs.com on 41.222.35.70 having previously hosted forboringbusinesses.com.
In all the following network blocks and IPs appear to be hosting servers connected to the Equation Group:

67.215.237.104/29
209.59.42.97
41.222.35.70

I recommend that you look at the data before you do drastic things with these IP ranges.

Now, I don't know for certain that this malware is a government actor, but the IP address indicate that whoever it is has a relationship with these companies (especially Verizon). That certainly feels like a state actor to me..

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.

"Your Amazon.co.uk order" spam with malformed DOC attachment

A whole bunch of these just came through:

From:     AMAZON.CO.UK [order@amazon.co.uk]
To:     1122@eddfg.com
Date:     13 October 2014 08:32
Subject:     Your Amazon.co.uk order }837-1171095-3201918

Hello,

Thanks for your order. We’ll let you know once your item(s) have dispatched.You can view the status of your order or make changes to it by visiting Your Orders on Amazon.co.uk.

We hope to see you again soon. Amazon.co.uk

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:

0M8R4KGxGuEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPgADAP7/CQAGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAIgAAAAAA
AAAAEAAAJAAAAAEAAAD+////AAAAACEAAAD/////////////////////////////////////
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKQAAAAAALADAAAAAAAAsAMAALADAAAAAAAAsAMAAAAAAACwAwAA
AAAAALADAAAAAAAAsAMAABQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOoDAAAUAAAAIgQAAAAAAAAiBAAAAAAAACIE


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.

Another fake Amazon spam with a malicious payload:

 There's a ZIP file attached (in this case Order-853-9908013-4362599.zip) which unzips to a folder Order details with a malicious file ORDER-992-5188991-000933.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 9/53.

Hello ,
Thank you for shopping with us. We'd like to let you know that Amazon has received your order, and is preparing it for shipment. Your estimated delivery date is below. If you would like to view the status of your order report is attached here.
This email was sent from a notification-only address that cannot accept incoming email. Please do not reply to this message.

Attached to the spam is an archive file order.zip which in turn contains a malicious executable order_id_26348273894729847239.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/51.

Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] shows the malware altering system files and creating a fake csrss.exe and svhost.exe to run at startup.

The malware also attempts to phone home to two IP addresses at 91.226.212.32 and 193.203.48.37 hosted in Russia but controlled by a Ukranian person or entity PE Ivanov Vitaliy Sergeevich. These network blocks are well-known purveyors of crapware, and I recommend that you block the following:

91.226.212.0/23
193.203.48.0/22

In the samples that I have seen the link in the email goes to either [donotclick]exivenca.com/support.php or [donotclick]vicorpseguridad.com/support.php both of which are currently down but were both legitimate sites hosted on 213.152.26.150 (Neo Telecoms, France). The fact that these sites are down could be because the host is dealing with the problem, however I would expect to see this same email template being used again in the future, so take care..

"Unauthorized Activity on your Amazon account" phish

The New Year seems to have brought a new wave of phishing emails, here's a new one looking for Amazon credentials.

Date:      Mon, 6 Jan 2014 08:19:39 -0000 [03:19:39 EST]
From:      Amazon [noreply@trysensa.com]

Case- 91289-90990

Unauthorized Activity on your Amazon account.

We recently confirmed that you had unauthorized activity on your Amazon account.

Please be assured that because your card includes "zero-liability fraud protection" , you are not responsible for unauthorized use of your card.

Unfortunately, we have not confirmed your complete information , please follow the instructions below.

Click the link below to validate your account information using our secure server:

Click Here To Active Your Amazon Account

For your protection, you must verify this activity before you can continue using your account

Thank You.
Amazon LTD Security System
The link in the email goes to [donotclick]immedicenter.com/immedicenter/images/yootheme/menu/Amazon/index.php and comes up with a convincing-looking Amazon login page:


The next page phishes for even more information:


And now it goes after your credit card information:

And having stolen all your information, you get a nice message to say thank-you:

The hapless victim then gets sent to the genuine Amazon.com website.

In most email clients, floating over the link would clearly demonstrate that this was not the legitimate amazon.com website, and certainly once visited (not something I would recommend) then the address bar at the top of the browser would clearly indicate it is not amazon.com.

If you have accidentally clicked through this email and provided all the details then you should contact your bank immediately and also change your Amazon password plus any other places that you use that same username/password combination.

Automated analysis tools seem to be timing out [1] [2] indicating perhaps that it has been hardened against sandbox analysis.
