Malware spam: "Companies House - new company complaint" / noreply@companies-house.me.uk / noreply@companieshouses.co.uk leads to TrickBot

This fake Companies House spam leads to TrickBot malware:

From:    Companies House [noreply@companieshouses.co.uk]
Date:    2 November 2016 at 11:51
Subject:    Companies House - new company complaint
Signed by:    companieshouses.co.uk

Investigations and Enforcement Services

This message has been auto-generated in response to the company complaint submitted to our WebFiling  service.

The submission number is ID109202DLK02911

Please find the attached document for your review.

Note: This email was sent from a notification-only email address which cannot accept incoming email. Please do not reply directly to this message.

Unlike recent Locky spam runs, this TrickBot run has gone to a lot of effort to look authentic.


The sender is either noreply@companies-house.me.uk or noreply@companieshouses.co.uk - both those domains have actually been registered by the spammers with fake WHOIS details:

    Registrant:
        Camell Williams

    Registrant type:
        Unknown

    Registrant's address:
        550 HOLTS LAKE CT STE 101
        Suite 101
        Apopka
        Florida
        32703
        United States


Both those domains are close to the genuine one of companieshouse.gov.uk and because the email is digitally signed it might get past spam filters where normal botnet-sent spam wouldn't.

All the emails that I have seen have been sent via servers at 172.99.84.190 and 172.99.88.226 (a Rackspace customer apparently called OnMetal v2 IAD PROD). I recommend that you block email traffic from those IPs.

Attached is a Word document Complaint.doc  (MD5 21AEA31907D50EE6F894B15A8939A48F) [VT 7/55] which according to this Hybrid Analysis downloads a binary from:

futuras.com/img/dododocdoc.exe

This is saved as sweezy.exe and has a detection rate of 7/57. At present that download location is down, probably due to exceeding bandwidth quota.

The Hybrid Analysis identifies several C2s which overlap with this TrickBot run from yesterday:

78.47.139.102 (Unknown customer of Hetzner, Germany)
91.219.28.58 (FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com, Ukraine)
91.219.28.77 (FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com, Ukraine)
193.9.28.24 (FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com, Ukraine)
193.107.111.164 (PP "Kremen Alliance", Ukraine)
193.124.177.117 (MAROSNET, Russia)


The uadomen.com IP ranges (as discussed yesterday) are a sea of badness and I recommend you block traffic to them.

Recommended blocklist:
78.47.139.96/28
91.219.28.0/22
193.9.28.0/24
193.107.111.164
193.124.177.117

Malware spam: "New Fax Message" / administrator@local-fax.com leads to TrickBot

This fake fax leads to TrickBot which appears to be similar to the Dyre banking trojan that we saw a lot of last year..

From:    Administrator [administrator@local-fax.com]
To:    annie@[redacted]
Date:    1 November 2016 at 13:28
Subject:    New Fax Message
Signed by:    local-fax.com

Confidential Fax
Date: 01/11/2016
Recipient: annie@[redacted]
From: +443021881211
Attn:
Important document: For internal use only
The documents are ready. Check attached file for more information.

[THIS IS AN AUTOMATED MESSAGE - PLEASE DO NOT REPLY DIRECTLY TO THIS EMAIL]

Confidentiality Notice: The information contained in this message may be confidential and legally privileged. It is intended only for use of the individual named. If you are not the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that the disclosure, copying, distribution, or taking of any action in regards to the contents of this fax - except its direct delivery to the intended recipient - is strictly prohibited. If you have received this fax in error, please notify the sender immediately and destroy this cover sheet along with its contents, and delete from your system, if applicable.



Attached is a Word document (in this case Internal_Fax.doc) which has a pretty low detection rate at VirusTotal of 5/54. Both the Malwr report and Hybrid Analysis give some clues as to what is going on, but in fact the Malwr report comes out with a binary download location of:

www.tessaban.com/img/safafaasfasdddd.exe

This is a hacked legitimate website. Downloading that file manually and resubmitting it gives two rather more interesting Malwr and Hybrid Analysis reports give the following suspect traffic:

91.219.28.77 (FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com, Ukraine)
193.9.28.24 (FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com, Ukraine)
37.1.209.51 (3NT Solutions LLP, UK)
138.201.44.28 (Philip Diver, Australia / Hetzner, Germany)
23.23.107.79 (Amazon EC2, US)

I can match all those IPs except the last to this ThreatGeek report, those IPs are a mix of what looks like dynamic IPs for hacked home users and static ones (highlighted):

5.12.28.0 (RCS & RDS Residential, Romania)
27.208.131.97 (China Unicom, China)
36.37.176.6 (VietTel, Cambodia)
37.1.209.51 (3NT Solutions LLP, UK)
37.109.52.75 (Cyfrowy Polsat, Poland)
46.22.211.34 (Inferno Solutions aka 3NT Solutions LLP, UK)
68.179.234.69 (ECTISP, US)
91.219.28.77 (FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com, Ukraine)
91.219.28.103 (FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com, Ukraine)
104.250.138.194 (Sean Sweeney, US / Gorillaservers, US)
138.201.44.28 (Philip Diver, Australia / Hetzner, Germany)
188.116.23.98 (NEPHAX, Poland)
188.138.1.53 (PlusServer, Germany)
193.9.28.24 (FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com, Ukraine)


3NT Solutions (aka Inferno Solutions / inferno.name) are very, very bad news and I would recommend blocking any IPs you can find for this outfit. FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com has appeared here so many times [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] that really I have to categorise that as an Evil Network too.

If we excise the domestic IPs and blackhole the 3NT / Inferno / uadomen.com ranges we get a recommended blocklist of:

37.1.208.0/21
46.22.211.0/24
91.219.28.0/22
104.250.138.192/27
138.201.44.28
188.116.23.98
188.138.1.53
193.9.28.0/24


However, there's more to this too. The original email message is actually signed by local-fax.com and it turns out that this domain was created just today with anonymous registration details. The sending IP was 104.130.246.8 (Rackspace, US) and it also turns out that this is widely blacklisted and is probably worth blocking.

All the samples I have seen show a consistent MD5 of e6d2863e97523d2f0e398545989666e4 for the attachment, and all the recipients I have seen begin with the letter "a" curiously enough..

Malware spam: "Your order has been proceeded." leads to Locky

This curiously worded spam email leads to Locky ransomware:

Subject:     Your order has been proceeded
From:     Elijah Farrell
Date:     Wednesday, 26 October 2016, 12:41


Your order has been proceeded.

Attached is the invoice for your order 2026326638.

Kindly keep the slip in case you would like to return or state your product's warranty.
The name of the sender is randomly generated, as is the reference number. Attached is a ZIP file beginning with "order_details_" plus a random sequence, containing a malicious .VBS script with a similar name.

The various scripts download a component from one of the following locations (thank you to my usual source for this):

Malware spam: "bank transactions"

This fake financial spam comes with a malicious attachment:

From:    Rueben Vazquez
Date:    31 August 2016 at 10:06
Subject:    bank transactions


Good morning petrol.

Attached is the bank transactions made from the company during last month.
Please file these transactions into financial record.


Yours truly,
Rueben Vazquez

The name of the sender will vary. Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file containing a malicious .js script with a name consisting of a random hexadecimal number plus _bank_transactions.js.

According to the Malwr report of these three samples [1] [2] [3] the (very sweary) scripts download from these following locations (there are probably more):

www.fulvio77.it/50glk
www.mbeccarini.com/8k8bpxvf

virmalw.name/2lnbr
smc.psuti.ru/rvnfdn26
www.opal.webserwer.pl/hpeqoqgg
www.europegreen.org/va99dis

Each one of those samples drops a different DLL with detection rates of 8/57 or so [4] [5] [6] and according to the Hybrid Analsis reports [7] [8] [9] these phone home to:

95.85.19.195/data/info.php [hostname: vps-110831.freedomain.in.ua] (Digital Ocean, Netherlands)
138.201.191.196/data/info.php [hostname: u138985v67.ds-servers.com] (Hetzner, Germany)
188.127.249.203/data/info.php [hostname: it.ivanovoobl.ru] (SmartApe, Russia)
188.127.249.32/data/info.php (SmartApe, Russia)
cufrmjsomasgdciq.pw/data/info.php [91.223.180.66] (FOP Sedinkin Olexandr Valeriyovuch aka thehost.ua, Ukraine)

The payload is probably the Locky ransomware.

Scam: Fanrong Europe Fund / fanrongfund.info / fanrongeuropefund.info / fanrongeuropefund.com

This spam email advertising a "too good to be true" investment is a scam:

From:    Tim Hoffman [letter@612.com]
To:    contact [contact@victimdomain.tld]
Date:    30 July 2016 at 09:26
Subject:    Fanrong Europe Fund – 1 Half 2016 return +32.69%.

NOTICE: Your address was obtained from open sources where you were agreed to receive the marketing information from third parties.
I have received two of these emails, one coming from the IPs 188.69.207.57 and 188.69.223.168 which are both allocated to a mobile phone provider in Lithuania (UPDATE: also 188.69.223.54). The website fanrongfund.info was created just a few days ago (28th July 2016) and is registed to the following (presumably fake) registrant:

Registrant ID: JLD4030131633
Registrant Name: James Dean
Registrant Organization:
Registrant Street: Vorstadt 20
Registrant City: Zug
Registrant State/Province:

Registrant Country: CH
Registrant Phone: +41.417120101

Registrant Email: jd767@yahoo.com


The site is hosted (apparently) in the British Virgin Islands on an IP allocated to the Public Domain Registry (PDR). It uses nameservers from Russian company AYBHOST.COM.

The website is pretty generic looking and opens with these words of wisdom:

Our main trade approach is:
"Close the position if it runs to loss, and hold it if it runs to profit".

Hans Messner
fund manager "Fanrong Europe Fund"

What next. "Buy low, sell high"? Here are some screenshots in case you see another version of this on your travels:






The "About" page carries this text:
We are the EU-domiciled investment manager with successful experience in stock trade in EU. Our professional assets managers have personal approach to trade with bear and bulls market. We use self-made investment strategy that allows getting the constant positive result in short-term horizon. All investment process is in full accordance with IIS (International Investment Standards) of Fanrong Capital (Hong Kong) (fanrongcapital.com).
Presumably this is copied off an earlier scam site, in this case there is an official warning about that particular firm.

fanrongfund.info appears to have mirrors at:

Malware spam: "Attached is the updated details about the company account you needed"

This spam has a malicious attachment:

Subject:     updated details
From:     Faith Davidson (Davidson.43198@optimaestate.com)

Attached is the updated details about the company account you needed

King regards

c57b98d01fd8a94bbf77f902b84f7c0ee46c514051b555c2be 
The spam comes from different senders with a different hexadecimal number in it. Attached is a ZIP file with a random name, containing a malicious .wsf script. Analysis of a sample shows the script download from:

beauty-jasmine.ru/6dc2y

There will be many more download locations in addition to that. It drops an executable which appears to be Locky ransomware with a detection rate of 7/55. Analysis of this payload is pending, however the C2 servers may well be the same as found here.

UPDATE

The C2 locations for this variant are:

5.9.253.173/upload/_dispatch.php (Dmitry Zheltov, Russia / Hetzner, Germany)
178.62.232.244/upload/_dispatch.php (Digital Ocean, Netherlands)

Malware spam: "Sent from my Samsung device" leads to Locky

This spam comes in a few different variations:

From:    Lottie
Date:    27 July 2016 at 10:38
Subject:    scan0000510

Sent from my Samsung device

The subject can be "SCAN", "scan" or "COPY" with a random number. Attached is a .DOCM file with a name that matches the subject. This file contains a malicious macro which downloads a component from one of the following locations:

alldesu.web.fc2.com/j988765
dslandscape.50webs.com/j988765
gmp.home.ro/j988765

www.holzrueckewagen.de/j988765
www.milleniumitaly.com/j988765
yogamaruco.web.fc2.com/j988765


The dropped file is Locky ransomware and it has a detection rate of 2/52. It phones home to the following locations:

5.9.253.173/upload/_dispatch.php (Dmitry Zheltov, Russia / Hetzner, Germany)
178.62.232.244/upload/_dispatch.php (Digital Ocean, Netherlands)


(Thank you to my usual source for this data)

There is nothing of value in the 5.9.253.160/27 range, and several IPs appear to have been hosting malware in the past.

Malware spam: "Weekly report" / "Please find attached the Weekly report."

This fake financial spam comes from random senders and companies and has a malicious attachment:

Subject:    Weekly report

Hi [redacted],


Please find attached the Weekly report.


King regards,

Castle (A.M.) & Co.
There are a large number of these, with a ZIP file attached containing a malicious scripts with a typical detection rate of 3/56. In this sample Malwr analysis, it downloads a file from:

test.glafuri.net/yxk6s

There will certainly be a LOT of other download locations. The dropped file GSKQtcnNu8MS.exe has a detection rate of 4/55 and that same VirusTotal report indicates C2 traffic to:

138.201.93.46 (Hetzner, Germany)
91.200.14.139 (PP SKS-LUGAN, Ukraine)
104.131.182.103 (Digital Ocean, US)
164.132.40.47 (OVH, France)


Even though other automated analysis failed [1] [2] this time we have previously identified two of those IPs as being Locky ransomware, so there is little doubt that this will be more of the same.

Malware spam: "Third Reminder - Outstanding Account" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam has a malicious attachment. It comes from random senders. Last week a fake "Second Reminder" spam was sent out.

From:    Ernestine Perkins
Date:    3 May 2016 at 08:54
Subject:    Third Reminder - Outstanding Account

 Dear Client,

We have recently sent you a number of letters to remind you that the balance of $9308.48 was overdue.
For details please check document attached to this mail


We ask again that if you have any queries or are not able to make full payment immediately, please contact us.


Regards,

Ernestine Perkins
Franchise - Sales Manager / Director - Business Co 

Attached is a ZIP file which in the samples I have seen begins with Scan_ or Document_ each one of which contains four identical copies of the same script, e.g.:

48524088_48524088 - copy (2).js
48524088_48524088 - copy (3).js
48524088_48524088 - copy (4).js
48524088_48524088 - copy.js
48524088_48524088.js


Typical detection rates for the scripts seem to be about 3/56.  The samples I have seen download a malicious binary from one of the following locations (there are probably more):

digigoweb.in/k3lxe
rfacine.com.br/z0odld
boontur.com/b2hskde


These binaries are all slightly different, with detection rates of 4 to 6 out of 56 [1] [2] [3]. Various automated analyses [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14] show that this is Locky ransomware, and it phones home to:

31.184.197.126 (Petersburg Internet Network, Russia)
78.47.110.82 (Hetzner, Germany)
91.226.93.113 (Sobis, Russia)

Hi there!

Hope you are good.

Hope you are good. We're missing payments on our statements for the invoices included in this email. Please let us know, when the payments will be initiated.

BTW, trying to get reply from you for a long time. This is not junk, do not ignore it please.

I have only seen a single sample of this, it is likely that the company names and sender will vary. Attached is a file missing_quickbooks982.zip which contains a malicious obfuscated javascript 91610_facture_2016.js which attempts to download a component from:

web.spartanburgcommunitycollege.com/gimme/some/loads_nigga.php

This drops a file pretending to be favicon.ico which is actually an executable with a detection rate of 3/56. This Hybrid Analysis and this DeepViz report indicate network traffic to:

103.245.153.154 (OrionVM Retail Pty Ltd, Australia)
176.9.113.214 (Hetzner, Germany)
210.245.92.63 (FPT Telecom Company, Vietnam)
213.192.1.171 (EASY Net, Czech Republic)


The payload isn't exactly clear, but it looks like Dridex rather than Locky. Almost certainly one of the two.

Malware spam: "FW: Latest order delivery details" is somewhat rude

This fake financial spam leads to malware:

From:    Milan Bell [Milan.Bell5@viuz-en-sallaz.fr]
Date:    21 April 2016 at 17:45
Subject:    FW: Latest order delivery details

Good morning!

Hope you are good.

Yesterday and the day before my colleague (Glover Hector) sent you a request regarding the invoice INV_6325-2016-victimdomain.tld past due.

I kindly ask you to give us a reply finally. We're getting no answers from you. Please stop ignoring invoice requests.

Many thanks and good luck

The rather rude pitch here is a canny bit of social engineering, aimed to make you open the link without clicking. I have only seen one sample of this at present and I guess that the details vary from email to email. In this case the attachment was called pastdue_tovictimdomain.tld340231.zip containing a malicious script pastdue60121342016.js.

This script has a VirusTotal detection rate of just 1/56. The Malwr report and Hybrid Analysis for this show it downloading a malicious binary from:

trendmicro.healdsburgdistricthospital.com/RIB/assets.php

Cheekily the URL references a well-known security company.  The domain it is using is a hijacked GoDaddy domain, and the download location is actually hosted at:

176.103.56.30 (PE Ivanov Vitaliy Sergeevich / Xserver.ua, Ukraine)

You can be that this is a malicious server and I recommend blocking it. This script downloads a binary named alarm.exe which has a detection rate of 4/56. The Hybrid Analysis for this sample shows network connections to:

103.245.153.154 (OrionVM, Australia)
176.9.113.214 (Hetzner, Germany)
210.245.92.63 (PT Telecom Company, Vietnam)
23.249.1.171 (Datacate , US)


It is not clear what the payload is, but there are indications it is the Dridex banking trojan.

Malware spam: "Please do confirm the Quote Price and get back to me as soon as possible"

This fake financial spam leads to malware:
From: khlee@ahnchem.com sales
To
Date: Mon, 18 Apr 2016 13:46:21 +0100

Dear Sir

FYI,

Please do confirm the Quote Price and get back to me as soon as possible.

Regards
Sales Department
Attached is a fie with an unusual extension, ORDER LIST.ace which is actually a compressed archive (basically a modified ZIP file). It contains an executable ORDER LIST.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 15/56. That same VirusTotal report indicates traffic to:

booksam.tk/pony/gate.php

This is hosted on:

46.4.100.109 (Hetzner, Germany)

That IP address might be worth blocking. The Hybrid Analysis indicates that this steals FTP and perhaps other passwords. This is a Pony loader which will probably try to download additional malware, but it is not clear what that it might be.
