Malware spam: DHL Shipment 458878382814 Delivered

Another day and another fake DHL message leading to an evil .js script.

From: DHL Parcel UK [redacted]
Sent: 02 May 2017 09:30
To: [redacted]
Subject: DHL Shipment 458878382814 Delivered

You can track this order by clicking on the following link:
https://www.dhl.com/apps/dhltrack/?action=track&tracknumbers=458878382814&language=en&opco=FDEG&clientype=ivother

Please do not respond to this message. This email was sent from an unattended mailbox. This report was generated at approximately 08:15 am CDT on 02/05/2017.

All weights are estimated.

The shipment is scheduled for delivery on or before the scheduled delivery displayed above. DHL does not determine money-back guarantee or delay claim requests based on the scheduled delivery. Please see the DHL Service Guide for terms and conditions of service, including the DHL Money-Back Guarantee, or contact your DHL customer support representative.

This tracking update has been sent to you by DHL on behalf of the Requestor [redacted]. DHL does not validate the authenticity of the requestor and does not validate, guarantee or warrant the authenticity of the request, the requestor's message, or the accuracy of this tracking update.

Standard transit is the date the package should be delivered by, based on the selected service, destination, and ship date. Limitations and exceptions may apply. Please see the DHL Service Guide for terms and conditions of service, including the DHL Money-Back Guarantee, or contact your DHL Customer Support representative.

In this case the link goes to parkpaladium.com/DHL24/18218056431/  and downloads a file DHL-134843-May-02-2017-55038-8327373-1339347112.js which looks like this.

According to Malwr and Hybrid Analysis the script downloads a binary from micromatrices.com/qwh7zxijifxsnxg20mlwa/ (77.92.78.38  - UK2, UK) and then subsequently attempts communication with

75.25.153.57 (AT&T, US)
79.170.95.202 (XL Internet Services, Netherlands)
87.106.148.126 (1&1, Germany)

92.51.129.235 (Host Europe, Germany)
74.50.57.220 (RimuHosting, US)


The dropped binary has a VirusTotal detection rate of 10/60.

Despite the link appearing to be from "royalmail.com" it's actually a Google redirector..

This bounces to centregold.org [185.133.40.23 - Krek Ltd, Russia] then a load balancer at rns.tobeylabs.com/tracking/delivery/tracking.php?id=554 [31.148.219.65 - KingServers, Netherlands] then either http://booniff.com/delivery/Pack_9356667UK.zip [216.24.167.58 - Amino Communications, US] or https://purolator.topatlantanursinghomelawyer.com/tracking/parcel/Notification_37352742UK.zip [185.159.80.100 - KingServers, Netherlands].

Note that the name of the .ZIP is generated dynamically, so there is some variation in filenames.

Inside the ZIP files is a malicious script (e.g. Pack_9356667UK.js) which according to Hybrid Analysis then communicates with a website at 31.148.219.208 [the same KingServers /24 as before!] and it drops a file mstsc.exe with VirusTotal detection rate of 11/57.

Malware spam: "RE: RE: ftc refund" / secretary@ftccomplaintassistant.com

This fake FTC email leads to malware. Curiously, it was sent to a company that received a multimillion dollar FTC fine, but this is almost definitely a coincidence.

From:    Federal Trade Commission [secretary@ftccomplaintassistant.com]
Date:    17 April 2017 at 15:25
Subject:    RE: RE: ftc refund


It seems we can claim a refund from the FTC.
Check this out and give me a call.
https://www.ftc.gov/refunds/company/companyname.com/FTC_refund_recipientname.doc
Thank you
James Newman
Senior Accountant
secretary@ftccomplaintassistant.com
212-0061570

The link in the email actually goes to a URL beginning http://thecomplete180.com/view.php?id= followed by a Base 64 encoded string that appears to be 6281 + recipient email address + 5434 (so for president@whitehouse.gov it would be http://thecomplete180.com/view.php?id=NjI4MXByZXNpZGVudEB3aGl0ZWhvdXNlLmdvdjU0MzQ=)

Obviously this downloaded document is up to no good, but the VirusTotal detection rates are only 5/56. The Word document itself tries to persuade victims to enable macros, which would be a bad idea.


Automated analysis [1] [2] shows network traffic to:

wasstalwihis.com/bdk/gate.php
littperevengpa.com/ls5/forum.php
littperevengpa.com/mlu/forum.php
littperevengpa.com/d1/about.php

hybridinformatica.com.br/blog/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/inc/1
hybridinformatica.com.br/blog/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/inc/2


It also appears to start sending traffic via Tor, which is a good reason to monitor Tor on your network. All sorts of files are dropped, most of which don't seem to be particularly malicious. "Gate.php" indicates a Pony downloader, but this does look like a tricky bugger.

Out of the domains contacted, littperevengpa.com and wasstalwihis.com shared the same registrant details and look fairly evil. We can associate the same registrant with the following domains:

soinwarep.com
ronwronsednot.com
withwasnothar.com

Perhaps more usefully, we can associate that registrant with the following IPs:

Malware spam: "Attached is the tax invoice of your company. Please do the payment in an urgent manner." leads to Locky

Dear Client,

Attached is the tax invoice of your company. Please do the payment in an urgent manner.

The name of the sender will vary. Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file containing a malicious .wsf with a name beginning with "tax_invoice_scan PDF". According to my trusted source (thank you!) the various scripts download a component from one of the following locations:

Malware spam: "Budget report" leads to Locky (and also evil network on 23.95.106.128/25)

This fake financial spam leads to Locky ransomware:

From:    Lauri Gibbs
Date:    12 September 2016 at 15:11
Subject:    Budget report

Hi [redacted],

I have partially finished the last month's budget report you asked me to do. Please add miscellaneous expenses in the budget.


With many thanks,
Lauri Gibbs
Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file which in sample I saw contained two identical malicious scripts:

921FA0B8 Budget_report_xls - 1.js
921FA0B8 Budget_report_xls.js


The scripts are highly obfuscated however the Hybrid Analysis and Malwr report show that it downloads a component from:

lookbookinghotels.ws/a9sgrrak
trybttr.ws/h71qizc


These are hosted on a New Wave Netconnect IP at 23.95.106.223. This forms part of a block 23.95.106.128/25 which also contained Locky download locations at two other locations [1] [2] which rather makes me think that the whole range should be blocked.

A DLL is dropped with a detection rate of about 8/57 [3] [4] which appears to phone home to:

51.255.105.2/data/info.php (New wind Stanislav, Montenegro / OVH / France)
185.154.15.150/data/info.php [hostname: tyte.ru] (Dunaevskiy Denis Leonidovich, Russia / Zomro, Netherlands)

46.173.214.95/data/info.php (Garant-Park-Internet Ltd, Russia)
91.214.71.101/data/info.php (ArtPlanet LLC, Russia)

Incidentally, the registrant information on the bad domains is also very familiar:

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)

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)

cufrmjsomasgdciq.pw/data/info.php [91.223.180.66] (FOP Sedinkin Olexandr Valeriyovuch aka thehost.ua, Ukraine)

Malware spam: "As you directed, I send the attachment containing the data about the new invoices"

From:    Marian Mcgowan
Date:    3 August 2016 at 11:15
Subject:    Fw: New invoices

As you directed, I send the attachment containing the data about the new invoices

Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file which contains a highly obfuscated .js script  which according to this Malwr analysis downloads a binary from..

blog-aida.cba.pl/2zensi7t

..when decrypted it creates a binary with a detection rate of 4/54. That same Malwr analysis shows it phoning home to:

93.170.104.20/php/upload.php (Breezle LLC, Netherlands) [hostname: pundik.rus.1vm.in]

This IP was seen last night and it seems that there is a concurrent Locky spam run phoning home to:

185.129.148.19/php/upload.php (MWTV, Latvia)
89.108.127.160/php/upload.php (Agava, Russia) [hostname: srv1129.commingserv.com]

Malware spam: "Please check the attached invoice and confirm me if I sent the right data" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to malware:

Subject:     Invoice
From:     Kendall Harrison (Harrison.59349@chazsmedley.com)

Hello,

Yours sincerely,

320907cb16fbe856062a081d4f925b39cb3f007b8818d40dd3 
The name of the sender and the hexadecimal number at the bottom varies. Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file which in the sample I analysed contains a malicious .wsf script beginning with the word "redacted".

The Malwr analysis for the partially deobfuscated script and this Hybrid Analysis show this particular sample downloading from:

83.235.64.44/~typecent/xvsb58

This drops a malicious Locky ransomware binary with a detection rate of 7/55. Analysis of this binary is pending.

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.

Malware spam: "DocuCentre-IV" / "Scan Data"
