"You requested a new Facebook password!" spam / Recoverypassword.zip and Facebook-SecureMessage.exe


This fake Facebook message comes with a malicious attachment:

Date:      Tue, 26 Nov 2013 04:58:18 +0300 [11/25/13 20:58:18 EST]
From:      Facebook [update+hiehdzge@facebookmail.com]
Subject:      You requested a new Facebook password!

facebook
Hello,

You have received a secure message. You will be prompted to open (view) the file or save (download) it to your computer. For best results, save the file first, then open it.

Read your secure message by opening the attachment, Facebook-SecureMessage.zip.

Didn't request this change?
If you didn't request a new password, let us know immediately.

This message was sent to [redacted] at your request.
Facebook, Inc., Attention: Department 415, PO Box 10005, Palo Alto, CA 94303

The attachment is Recoverypassword.zip which in turn contains a malicious executable Facebook-SecureMessage.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 16/42. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] shows attempted connections to developmentinn.com on 38.102.226.252 (Cogent, US) and spotopia.com on 199.229.232.99 (Enzu, US). Note that the servers on those IPs host dozens of legitimate sites and I cannot say for certain if they are all compromised or note.

Facebook spam / watchfp.net

All this malware-laden Facebook spam is boring. Here's another one, leading to a malicious payload on watchfp.net:

Date: Tue, 3 Sep 2013 11:37:14 -0700 [14:37:14 EDT]
From: Facebook [notification+zrdohvri=vd1@facebookmail.com]

Blake is pretty feminine looking for a bloke:

The photograph is stolen from the website of Ashot Gevorkyan [some pictures perhaps nsfw] who has quite a nice porfolio. Anyway.. the link in the email uses a shortening service:

[donotclick]u.to/r05nBA which goes to
[donotclick]www.rosenberger-kirwa.de/triassic/index.html which loads one of the following:
[donotclick]safbil.com/stashed/flout.js
[donotclick]ftp.spectrumnutrition.ca/sunscreens/copping.js
[donotclick]schornsteinfeger-helmste.de/covetously/turk.js


The final step is that the victim ends up on a malware landing page at [donotclick]watchfp.net/topic/able_disturb_planning.php which is a hijacked GoDaddy domain hosted on 192.81.134.241 (Linode, US) along with some other hijacked domains listed in italics below. The attack is characteristic of the ThreeScripts series of malicious spam emails.

In this case the link in the spam appears to use some sort of URL shortening service, first going to [donotclick]jdem.cz/5xxb8 then [donotclick]93.93.189.108/exhortation/index.html where it attempts to load one of the following three scripts:

[donotclick]mobileforprofit.net/affected/liberal.js
[donotclick]tuviking.com/trillionth/began.js

These scripts in turn direct the visitor to a malicious payload site at [donotclick]london-leather.com/topic/able_disturb_planning.php which is a hijacked GoDaddy domain hosted on 173.246.104.184 (Gandi, US) which hosts a number of malicious domains, also hijacked from GoDaddy and listed in italics below.

Apparently all these people look alike:

This is a "ThreeScripts" attack, clicking the link goes to a legitimate hacked site which then tries to run one of the following:

[donotclick]system-hostings.info/aphrodisiac/nought.js
[donotclick]gc.sceonline.org/worsens/patronizingly.js
[donotclick]www.kgsindia.org/retell/manson.js

from there, the victim is sent to a malware landing page on a hijacked GoDaddy domain at [donotclick]happykido.com/topic/able_disturb_planning.php hosted on 50.2.138.161 (ServerHub Phoenix, US). There are several other hacked GoDaddy domains on the same server, all of which should be considered to be malicious.

"You requested a new Facebook password" spam / nphscards.com

This fake Facebook spam leads to malware on nphscards.com:

The link in the email goes through a legitimate hacked site and then through one or both of these following scripts:
[donotclick]ftp.thermovite.de/kurile/teeniest.js
[donotclick]traditionlagoonresort.com/prodded/televised.js

The victim is then directed to [donotclick]nphscards.com/topic/accidentally-results-stay.php (report here) which appears to be 403ing, but this may just be trickery. The site is hosted on 162.216.18.169 (Linode, US) and the domain nphscards.com itself appears to have been hijacked from GoDaddy. The domain nphssoccercards.com is also on the same server and is probably hijacked.

rxlogs.net: spam or Joe Job?

I've had nearly one hundred of these this morning. Is it a genuine spam run or a Joe Job?

The link in the emails goes to multiple pages on rxlogs.net which as far I as can tell is not malware, but is a blog about online pharmacies. But is is spam? Well, let's dig a little deeper..

Each email comes from a different IP, probably being sent by a botnet. That's pretty normal for pharma spam, but in this case there appear to be some anomalous addition headers..

The mildly munged headers from an example email are quite revealing. It appears that there are references to Amazon ECS (Amazon's cloud service) and a valid sender address of whisis101 -at- gmail.com injected into the headers, along with a load of other elements that you'd expect from botnet spam. The email has at no point hit either Gmail or Amazon, but the headers appear to have been faked in order to generate reports to Amazon and/or Gmail. It's worth noting that rxlogs.net is hosted on 107.20.147.122 which is an Amazon IP, so this is beginning to look like a Joe Job.

So what do we know about the domain rxlogs.net? Well, the WHOIS details appear to be genuine and not hidden, I've redacted the most of the personal information but some of the key details are:

domain:       rxlogs.net
owner:        Stephen K. Walker
email:        whisis101 -at- gmail.com
address:      [redacted]
city:         [redacted]
postal-code:  [redacted]
country:      US
phone:        +7.[redacted]


The "From" address in the email matches the registration address in the WHOIS. Does that make it a genuine email? No, because no spammer is stupid enough to use their real email address in a spam run like this. Again, this smells like a Joe Job.

Another key indicator that this is a Joe Job is that all the dozens of emails have been sent to a spamcop.net email address, and there are far more emails that you would normally see for this type of spam run. This behaviour is typical for a Joe Job attack, the spammer pick the people who are most likely to complain and then hit them repeatedly to get try to get them to file a complaint with the victim's web host.

If you use Gmail, the email links back to a spare but apparently genuine Google+ profile, which links back to rxlogs.net. Which really leads to the next question.. what is rxlogs.net about?


rxlogs.net appears to be a genuine attempt to look at and rate online pharmacies using secondary sources to judge reliability and trustworthiness. The sites carries some paid advertising, but doesn't appear to deal with prescription medications directly, it looks like an affiliate site.

I'm not an expert in the US online pharmacy market, but I do know that you can check the legitimacy of online pharmacies with LegitScript but this is not without criticism.

My guess is that what has happened here is that Mr Walker has posted something on rxlogs.net which exposes a bogus pharma operation run by the same spammers sending out these emails. In other words, I believe this is a Joe Job and not a "genuine" spam run, and rxlogs.net is simply another victim of the bad guys.

ICANN: thanks for the malware spam / mailedspokesperson.biz

LinkedIn values your privacy. At no time has LinkedIn made your email address available to any other LinkedIn user without your permission. c 2013, LinkedIn Corporation.
The catch with this is that the email address being used is one used only to file WHOIS Compliance Reports with ICANN. If you file reports of inaccurate WHOIS data, then you need to be aware that by default ICANN will forward your contact details to the bad guys.. you can request that this be suppressed, but using an alias is (ironically) probably the best bet. So in this case, the bad guys have presumably just added the email in the complaint to their spam list..

Anyway, this has a link to a legitimate hacked site and thence on to [donotclick]mailedspokesperson.biz/closest/f2ihoiwegjowiejf230hfaj.php (report here) hosted on 46.4.150.117 (Siteko Ltd / Hetzner Online, Germany). The WHOIS details are characteristic of the Amerika gang:

The emails vary somewhat in content. I've received 60+ of these today to one email account alone, so this site is being pushed very hard indeed. Although the email is annoying, it does not seem to be harmful. For more details, see this earlier post about another spam run for the same domain.
