Malware spam: "Agreement form" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to malware:

Subject:     Agreement form
From:     Marlin Gibson
Date:     Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 9:35

Hi there,

Roberta assigned you to make the payment agreement for the new coming employees.

Here is the agreement form. Please finish it urgently.

Best Regards,
Marlin Gibson
Support Manager
The name of the sender will vary. Attached is a ZIP file named with a random hexadecimal sequence, containing a malicious .JS script ending with agreement_form_doc.js and in the sample I saw there was also a duplicate..

308F92BC agreement_form_doc - 1.js
308F92BC agreement_form_doc.js


Automated analysis [1] [2] shows that the scripts [partly deobfuscated example] attempt to download a binary from one of the following locations:

donttouchmybaseline.ws/ecf2k1o
canonsupervideo4k.ws/afeb6
malwinstall.wang/fsdglygf
listofbuyersus.co.in/epzugs


Of those locations, only the first three resolve, as follows:

donttouchmybaseline.ws 216.244.68.195 (Wowrack, US)
canonsupervideo4k.ws   51.255.227.230 (OVH, France / Kitdos)
malwinstall.wang       51.255.227.230 (OVH, France / Kitdos)


The registration details for all those domains are the same:

  Registry Registrant ID:
  Registrant Name: Dudenkov Denis
  Registrant Organization: Eranet International Limited
  Registrant Street: Lenina 18 Lenina 18
  Registrant City: Vladivostok
  Registrant State/Province: RU
  Registrant Postal Code: 690109
  Registrant Country: RU
  Registrant Phone: 85222190860
  Registrant Phone Ext:
  Registrant Fax:
  Registrant Fax Ext:
  Registrant Email: volosovik@inbox.ru
  Registry Admin ID:

These are the same details as found here. We know from that incident that the download locations are actually spread around a bit:

23.95.106.206 (New Wave NetConnect, US)
51.255.227.230 (OVH, France / Kitdos)
107.173.176.4 (Virtual Machine Solutions LLC, US)
192.3.7.198 [hostname: ns2.3arab.net] (Hudson Valley Host, US)
216.244.68.195 (Wowrack, US)
217.13.103.48 (1B Holding ZRT, Hungary)


The following also presumably evil sites are also hosted on those IPs:

bookinghotworld.ws
clubofmalw.ws
darkestzone2.wang
donttouchmybaseline.ws
canonsupervideo4k.ws
malwinstall.wang
wangmewang.name
tradesmartcoin.xyz
virmalw.name


Currently I am unable to work out the C2 locations for the malware, which is probably Locky ransomware. In the meantime, I recommend you block:

51.255.227.228/30
23.95.106.206
107.173.176.4
192.3.7.198
216.244.68.195
217.13.103.48

bookinghotworld.ws
clubofmalw.ws
darkestzone2.wang
donttouchmybaseline.ws
canonsupervideo4k.ws
malwinstall.wang
wangmewang.name
tradesmartcoin.xyz
virmalw.name


UPDATE

My trusted source (thank you) says that it phones home to the following IPs and URLs:

91.211.119.71/data/info.php (Zharkov Mukola Mukolayovuch aka 0x2a, Ukraine)
185.162.8.101/data/info.php (Eurohoster, Netherlands)

In addition to the IPs listed above, I also recommend blocking:

Malware spam: "We are sending you the credit card receipt from yesterday. Please match the card number and amount."

This fake financial spam has a malicious attachment:

From:    Tamika Good
Date:    5 September 2016 at 08:43
Subject:    Credit card receipt

Dear [redacted],

We are sending you the credit card receipt from yesterday. Please match the card number and amount.


Sincerely yours,
Tamika Good
Account manager
The spam will appear to come from different senders. Attached is a ZIP file with a random hexadecimal name, in turn containing a malicious .js script starting with the string credit_card_receipt_

A Malwr analysis of three samples [1] [2] [3] shows each one downloading a component from:

canonsupervideo4k.ws/1bcpr7xx

This appears to be multihomed on the following IP addresses:

23.95.106.206 (New Wave NetConnect, US)
107.173.176.4 (Virtual Machine Solutions LLC, US)
192.3.7.198 [hostname: ns2.3arab.net] (Hudson Valley Host, US)
217.13.103.48 (1B Holding ZRT, Hungary)


Of interest, the WHOIS details have been seen before in relation to Locky. They are probably fake:

  Registrant Name: Dudenkov Denis
  Registrant Organization: Eranet International Limited
  Registrant Street: Lenina 18 Lenina 18
  Registrant City: Vladivostok
  Registrant State/Province: RU
  Registrant Postal Code: 690109
  Registrant Country: RU
  Registrant Phone: 85222190860
  Registrant Phone Ext:
  Registrant Fax:
  Registrant Fax Ext:
  Registrant Email: volosovik@inbox.ru


Those reports indicate that a malicious DLL is dropped with a detection rate of 9/57.  These Hybrid Analysis reports [4] [5] [6] show the malware phoning home to:

91.211.119.71/data/info.php [hostname: data.ru.com] (Zharkov Mukola Mukolayovuch aka 0x2a, Ukraine)
158.255.6.109/data/info.php (Mir Telematiki, Russia)
185.154.15.150/data/info.php (Denis Leonidovich Dunaevskiy, Ukraine)

uxfpwxxoyxt.pw/data/info.php [188.120.232.55] (TheFirst-RU, Russia)

The payload is probably Locky ransomware.

Malware spam: "Scan from KM1650" / "Please find attached your recent scan" / "scanner@victimdomain.tld"

This fake document scan leads to malware. It appears to originate from within the victim's own domain, but it is just a simple forgery.

From:    scanner@victimdomain.tld
Date:    11 February 2016 at 10:24
Subject:    Scan from KM1650

Please find attached your recent scan  
Attached is a file =SCAN7318_000.DOC which seems to come in several different varieties (sample VirusTotal results [1] [2] [3]). The Malwr reports [4] [5] [6] indicate the the macro in the document downloads a malicious executable from:

maraf0n.vv.si/09u8h76f/65fg67n

The dropped executable has a detection rate of 2/54. As with this earlier spam run it phones home to:

Block traffic to that IP. The payload is the Dridex banking trojan.

Fake "Financial Times Survey Team" spam / ft-survey.com and AlfainHost

This fake Financial Times spam is a bit of a mystery:

From: The Financial Times [mailto:ft448516@surveymonkey.com]
Sent: Thu 07/11/2013 18:58
Subject: We value your opinion and we need your help


Dear British businessman,

We at the Financial Times are doing a survey among British business owners and managers regarding Euroscepticism.

As you are currently aware David Cameron on Monday confronted critics in his party who want to withdraw from the EU and close Britains borders, arguing there was no use hiding away from the world. And a lot more will follow.

We are contacting as many subscribers and people who commented on our business related articles to ask for their own opinion.

If you would like to be heard and help us build an article that will be on the first page in the next few weeks please help us.

Send us an E-mail at eu@ft-survey.com with the following information:

If your business is connected by import or export with the European Union, if it is Export please add us a few more details like what do you sell, or the services you provide;
What countries do you trade within the European Union;
Your opinion on Euroscepticism and the effect it has on your business;

Thank you so much for your help and contribution.

The Financial Times Survey Team,
eu@ft-survey.com
There are no links in the email apart from a mailto: for the email address, and there are no attachments. The email was sent to a UK user and concerns a matter specific to people in the UK, so it appears to be targeted in some way.

So, what's wrong with this email? Let's start by looking at the domain ft-survey.com which was registered just one day ago on 6th November to a registrant using the Panamanian privatewhois.net service to hide their details. The real Financial Times site at ft.com clearly identifies its owner. If you visit ft-survey.com (not recommended) then you get a 302 redirect to the legitimate ft.com website.

Next, ft-survey.com is hosted and receives mail on 204.188.238.143 which nominally belongs to some outfit called Sharktech in Las Vegas, but is actually suballocated to a customer in Pakistan:

It would be unlikely that the Financial Times would be using such a small outfit. Furthermore, 204.188.238.143 appears to contain a number of scam domains that look like phishing or money mule recruitment sites, as indeed does the entire 204.188.238.140/30 block.. more of which below.

The email headers are also suspect, and appear to show an originating IP of 94.21.75.226 (A Digi Ltd Customer in Hungary) mis-using a PHP script on rockyourworldsummit.com 66.147.242.87 (Unified Layer, US) which then bounces mail through a mailserver on 67.222.51.224 (also Unified Layer).

WOT ratings indicate low trustworthiness, Google has identified a number of malware and phishing sites and the SURBL codes also indicate some spam and malware. However, a look at some of the domains in use will lead you in no doubt that there are a large number of phishing domains hosted in this block. I would strongly recommend that you block it.


Quite what the point of this spam is I do not know, however I suspect that answering the so-called survery will open you up to other attacks including spear phishing.

Something evil on 87.229.26.138

This seems to be a bunch of evil domains on 87.229.26.138 (Deninet, Hungary) being used in injection attacks. Possible payloads include Blackhole (for example).

There are two sets of domains, .in domains being used by themselves and .eu domains being used with subdomains, listed below.

The registration details are probably fake, but for the record the .eu domains are registered to:
Juha Salonen
Lukiokatu 23
13430 Hameenlinna
Hameenlinna
Finland
salonen_juha@yahoo.com


The .in domains are registered to:
Puk T Lapkanen
Puruntie 33
LAPPEENRANTA
53200
FI
+358.443875638
puklapkanen@yahoo.com


If you can block the IP address then it will be the simplest option as there are rather a lot of domains here:

Virus: "Help! I'm in trouble!"

Another virus-laden email, technically very similar to this one yesterday:

Date: Wed, 23 Nov 2011 08:28:46 +0700
From: Saffi@victimdomain.com
To: victim@victimdomain.com
Subject: Help! I'm in trouble!

I was at a party, got drunk, couldn't drive the car, somebody gave me a lift on my car, and crossed on the red light many times, I've just got the pictures, maybe you know him?
Here is the photo

I need to find him urgently!

Thank you
Saffi
The name of the sender varies, but the approach is to use the same domain as the victim to make it look more believable. In the sample I have, the "Here is the photo" link 404s, but you can guarantee that it is malware.. so don't click that link!

Update: the malicious payload is on blredret.ru  (94.199.51.108) at 23vnet Kft in Budapest (again). The Wepawet report is here. Blocking that IP proactively is probably wise.

Update: this spam run is happening again, but with a different set of malicious IPs (read more)

Virus: "Hello! Look, I've received an unfamiliar bill, have you ordered anything?"

Here's a piece of fairly clever social engineering:

Date:      Tue, 22 Nov 2011 12:48:52 +0200
From:      "LILLIE Stinson" [accounting@victimdomain.com]
To:      [victim@victimdomain.com]
Subject:      Need your help!

Hello! Look, I've received an unfamiliar bill, have you ordered anything?
Here is the bill

Please reply as soon as possible, because the amount is large and they demand the payment urgently.

Looking forward to your answer

Fingerprint: 9caf6417-d5b308e2

The link goes to a legitimate website that has been hacked, which then redirects to bsredret.ru on 94.199.51.108 (23VNet, Hungary). A Wepawet report for the target page can be found here.

There are a variety of similar emails doing the rounds at the moment, and the IP and URL with the payload seems to change every day. It might be prudent to warn any users you are responsible for to look out..

Evil network: RONET / ro-net.eu (91.229.90.0/23)

RONET (aka. ro-net.eu) seems to be a new netblock occupying the 91.229.90.0/23 (91.229.90.0 - 91.229.91.255) range. This block has several sites recently moved from Netserv Consult SRL (who have a very bad reputation), all of which appear to be involved in criminal activity.

Although the number of sites is very low at present (just 30), the use of a /23 block indicates the perhaps this will be used for more sites very soon. Blocking 91.229.90.0/23 preemptively would probably be an excellent idea.

Here are some examples of evilness:

bywordelectronics.com [91.229.90.11]
Money mule scam / fake jobs [1] [2] [3] [4]

admagnet1.com [91.229.90.35]
Malware distribution [5] [6] [7]

eyebluster-sv1.com [91.229.90.37]
Malware distribution [8]  [9]

Other domains are registered with fake WHOIS details which is never a good sign.

The 91.229.90.0/23 range is registered to:

inetnum:         91.229.90.0 - 91.229.91.255

Of note is the fact that ro-net.eu was only registered two weeks ago with anonymous registration details. Also, note that although the address is in Hungary, the RONET name would indicate that it still has a ROmanian connection.

Another oddity is that the network announces itself as part of AS17088 which is allocated to Currenex, Inc. There seems to be no connection at all between Currenex, Inc and RONET, so perhaps this is an error or some kind of forgery.

Evil network: Leksim Ltd / RELNET-NET AS5577 (62.122.72.0/21)

Implicated in malware distribution, botnet C&Cs and spam, the network range 62.122.72.0/21 (62.122.72.0 - 62.122.79.255) is currently quite active in evil activities (you can find examples here and here and the SiteVet report here).

There aren't many sites in this block, and they are almost all either in 62.122.73.0/24 and 62.122.75.0/24 (but blocking the /21 is safer).. but the vast majority of sites are rated deep red at MyWOT (a full list of sites and ratings can be downloaded here).

But is this "Leksim Ltd" or Relnet? Relnet's contact details (for rel-net.eu, relnet.eu, relnet.hu) are very different:

domain:        relnet.hu
registrant:    Relnet Technologia Ltd.
registrant:    Relnet Technológia Kft.

address:   Véső 7

fax-no:    06-1-350-1355
e-mail:    hostmaster@relnet.hu
hun-id:    2000466058

If you Google the first three names you get some very telling results.

Blocking the /21 is probably the best idea. I can identify the following domains in this block in case you want to block by domain name, or for more detail download the CSV version.
