About NACHA

Established in 1974, NACHA - The Electronic Payments Association was formed by the California ACH Association, the Georgia Association, the New England ACH Association, and the Upper Midwest ACH Association, to establish uniform operating rules for the exchange of Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments among ACH associations.

To help guide advocacy and related communication activities, NACHA established a Communications and Marketing Advisory Group (CMAG) in early 2010. CMAG brings together practitioners representing ACH Network participants to engage in work efforts to benefit the Network and those who utilize it.

NACHA and its member Regional Payments Associations help industry professionals expand their payments knowledge to further their professional development and benefit their employers. Offerings include in-person, desk-top, and distance learning courses, publications, and the Accredited ACH Professional (AAP) Program. Payments education offered by NACHA at the national level augments the rich offering of educational programs provided by the Regional Payments Associations throughout the country.

The link in the email goes through a legitimate hacked site and then runs one of three scripts:
[donotclick]theodoxos.gr/hairstyles/defiling.js
[donotclick]web29.webbox11.server-home.org/volleyballs/cloture.js
[donotclick]www.knopflos-combo.de/subdued/opposition.js

Then the victim is directed to a malware landing page at [donotclick]thewalletslip.com/topic/latest-blog-news.php and if you follow this blog regularly then you will not be at all surprised to find that it has been hijacked from GoDaddy (others listed in italics below). It is hosted on 75.98.172.238 (A2 Hosting, US) which is the same server spotted yesterday.

About NACHA

NACHA occupies a unique role in the association world, serving as both an industry trade association and administrator of Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network. As the industry trade association that oversees the ACH Network, NACHA provides services in three key functional areas:

The NACHA Operating Rules provide the legal foundation for the exchange of ACH payments and ensure that the ACH Network remains efficient, reliable, and secure for the benefit of all participants. In its role as Network administrator, NACHA manages the rulemaking process and ensures that proposed ACH applications are consistent with the Guiding Principles of the ACH Network. The rulemaking process provides a disciplined, well-defined methodology to propose and develop and propose rules amendments to the NACHA voting membership, the decision makers for the NACHA Operating Rules.

NACHA develops and implements a comprehensive, end-to-end risk management framework that includes network entry requirements, ongoing requirements, enforcement, and ACH Operator tools and services. Collectively, the strategy addresses risk and quality in the ACH Network by minimizing unauthorized entries and customer services costs to all Network participants.

freac.net is back with a BBB spam run

freac.net is a domain used by malicious spam email pretending to be from the BBB or NACHA, as in this example. In that case, freac.net was apparently hosted on an IP belonging to Huawei in the US, but shortly afterwards it went non-resolving.

Well, freac.net is back and so is the spam promoting it.. e.g.

Currenly freac.net is hosted on 46.4.226.18 and 41.64.21.71, the first is a server rented from Hetzner in Germany, oddly the second is an ADSL line in Cairo.

Anyway, blocking those IPs will stop any further infections from those IPs. A Wepawet report for this infection is here.

Here we go again, another NACHA spam leading to a malicious payload..

From:  The Electronic Payments Association risk_manager@nacha.org

The ACH transaction (ID: 44103676925895), recently initiated from your bank account (by you or any other person), was canceled by the Electronic Payments Association.

The malware is on biggestblazer.com/search.php?page=73a07bcb51f4be71 (report here) which is hosted on 199.30.89.180 (Central Host Inc / Zerigo.. yet again). It attempts to download additional components from billydimple.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=656974  on 69.164.205.122 (Linode.. again).

I've now seen several malicious sites in the 199.30.89.0/24 range, it might be worth considering blocking the whole lot.

I can't believe that there is a person in the world receiving this who will not have received hundreds of versions of the same thing before, but the spammers continue. The malicious payload is at biggestloop.com/main.php?page=27f6207e33edeeca (analysis here) on 206.214.68.57 (B2Net Solutions, Canada). Block the IP if you can. Better still, write some filters for your email system to keep the things far, far away.
