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

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
dingandrinfe.com
troverylit.com
derby-au.com
utonerutoft.com

adp-monthly-billling.com
rigakeddo.com

hetoftinbut.com

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

178.170.189.254 [hostname: nejokexulag.example.com] (Servachok Ltd, Russia)
185.146.1.4 (PS Internet Company LLC, Kazakhstan)

Malware spam: "The Insolvency Service" / "Investigations Inquiry Notification" / chucktowncheckin.com / chapelnash.com

This malware spam in unusual in many respects. The payload may be some sort of ransomware [UPDATE: this appears to be Cerber].

From: The Insolvency Service [mailto:service@chucktowncheckin.com]
Sent: 19 January 2017 12:22
Subject: EGY 318NHAR12 - Investigations Inquiry Notification



Company Investigations Inquiry
Informing You that we have received appeal regarding your company which indicates corporate misconduct.
Your Inquiry Number: 84725UPTN583
As part of this occasion we have made our own background investigation and if it occurs to be in the public interest, we can apply to the court to wind up the company and stop it trading.
Also if the performance of the director(s) who run the company is questionable enough, we can commence proceedings to disqualify them from governing a limited company for a time span up to 15 years.
FURTHER CASE DATA
The investigation can give us information that we can transmit to another regulatory body that has more suitable powers to deal with any concerns the investigation uncovers.

FHF 338SYBV85 -  Investigations Inquiry Notice
EGY 318NHAR12 -  Investigations Inquiry Notification
IZJ 296CNWP92 -  Investigations Inquiry Notice

All the senders I have seen come from the chucktowncheckin.com domain. Furthermore, all of the sending servers are in the same /24:

194.87.216.87
194.87.216.62
194.87.216.40
194.87.216.43
194.87.216.3
194.87.216.7
194.87.216.80

All the servers have names like kvm42.chapelnash.com in a network block controlled by Reg.ru in Russia.

The link in the email goes to some hacked WordPress site or other, then ends up on a subdomain of uk-insolvencydirect.com e.g. 2vo4.uk-insolvencydirect.com/sending_data/in_cgi/bbwp/cases/Inquiry.php - this is a pretty convincing looking page spoofing the UK government, asking for a CAPTCHA to download the files:


Entering the CAPTCHA downloads a ZIP file (e.g. 3d6Zy.zip) containing a malicious Javascript (e.g. Inquiry Details.js) that looks like this [Pastebin].

Hybrid Analysis of the script is rather interesting, not least because it performs NSLOOKUPs against OpenDNS servers (which is a really weird thing to do give that OpenDNS is a security tool).

The script downloads a component from www.studiolegaleabbruzzese.com/wp-content/plugins/urxwhbnw3ez/flight_4832.pdf and then drops an EXE with an MD5 of e403129a69b5dcfff95362738ce8f241 and a detection rate of 5/53.

Narrowing the Hybrid Analysis down to just the dropped EXE, we can see these peculiar OpenDNS requests as the malware tries to reach out to:

soumakereceivedthiswith.ru (176.98.52.157 - FLP Sidorenko Aleksandr Aleksandrovich, Russia)
sectionpermiathefor.ru (151.0.42.255 - Online Technologies, Ukraine)
programuserandussource.ru (does not resolve)
maytermsmodiall.ru (does not resolve)

It isn't exactly clear what the malware does, but you can bet it is Nothing Good™.

I recommend that you block email traffic from:

194.87.216.0/24

and block web traffic to

uk-insolvencydirect.com
studiolegaleabbruzzese.com
176.98.52.157
151.0.42.255

Malware spam: "Payslip for the month Dec 2016." leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to Locky ransomware:

From:    PATRICA GROVES
Date:    19 December 2016 at 10:12
Subject:    Payslip for the month Dec 2016.

Dear customer,

We are sending your payslip for the month Dec 2016 as an attachment with this mail.

Note: This is an auto-generated mail. Please do not reply.
The name of the sender will vary. Attached is a malicious Word document with a name like Payslip_Dec_2016_6946345.doc which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 12/55.

This Hybrid Analysis clearly shows Locky ransomware in action when the document is opened.

According to my usual reliable source, the various versions of this download a component from one of the following locations:

The malware then phones home to one of the following locations:

176.121.14.95/checkupdate (Rinet LLC, Ukraine)
193.201.225.124/checkupdate (PE Tetyana Mysyk, Ukraine)
188.127.237.76/checkupdate (SmartApe, Russia)
46.148.26.82/checkupdate (Infium, Latvia / Ukraine)

Malware spam: "Invoice number: 947781" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam comes from multiple senders and leads to Locky ransomware:


From:    AUTUMN RHINES
Date:    12 December 2016 at 10:40
Subject:    Invoice number: 947781

Please find attached a copy of your invoice.


Tel: 0800 170 7234
Fax: 0161 850 0404

For all your stationery needs please visit Stationerybase.
The name of the sender varies, as does the fake invoice number. Attached is a .DOCM file with a filename matching that invoice number. Typical detection rates for the DOCM file are 13/56.

Automated analysis of a couple of these files [1] [2] [3] [4] show the macro downloading a component from miel-maroc.com/874ghv3  (there are probably many more locations). A DLL is dropped with a current detection rate of 11/57.

All those analyses indicate that this is Locky ransomware (Osiris variant), phoning home to:

176.121.14.95/checkupdate (Rinet LLC, Ukraine)
88.214.236.218/checkupdate (Overoptic Systems, UK / Russia)
91.219.31.14/checkupdate (FLP Kochenov Aleksej Vladislavovich aka uadomen.com, Ukraine)

Malware spam: "Firewall Software" leads to Locky

This spam appears to come from multiple senders and leads to Locky ransomware:

From:    Herman Middleton
Date:    9 December 2016 at 07:40
Subject:    Firewall Software

Hey [redacted], it is Herman. You've asked me to order new firewall software for our office computers.
Done and ready. Here, in the attachment, is the full invoice of the software counteragent.

Please check it out.


--
King Regards,
Herman Middleton
IT Support Manager
Attached is a ZIP file with a name like f_license_5330349.zip which contains a randomly named .js script which is very highly obfuscated.

The Hybrid Analysis and Malwr report show that the script analysed downloads a component from welte.pl/mupze (there will probably be dozens of other locations) and appears to drop a DLL with a detection rate of 4/56. That Hybrid Analysis also detections C2 traffic to:

107.181.187.97/checkupdate [hostname: saluk1.example.com] (Total Server Solutions, US)
51.254.141.213/checkupdate (OVH, France)


It's worth mentioning perhaps that other Locky C2 servers seen in the past 12 hours are as follows:

91.142.90.46/checkupdate [hostname: mrn46.powerfulsecurities.com] (Miran, Russia)
195.123.209.23/checkupdate [hostame: prujio.com] (Layer6, Latvia)
185.127.24.247/checkupdate [hostname: free.example.com] (Informtehtrans, Russia)
176.121.14.95/checkupdate (Rinet LLC, Ukraine)
185.46.11.236/checkupdate (Agava, Russia)
178.159.42.248/checkupdate (Dunaevskiy Denis Leonidovich / Zomro, Ukraine)


Although some of these are from different sub-groups of Locky pushers, let's stick them all together for the sake of convenience. Note that there are a at least a couple of bad /24 blocks in there.

Recommended blocklist:
51.254.141.213
91.142.90.46
107.181.187.97

Moar Locky: "Bill-12345" from victim's own domain

This spam has no body text and appears to come from within the sender's own domain. It leads to Locky ransomware. For example:

From:    julia newenham [julia.newenham@victimdomain.tld]
Date:    23 November 2016 at 10:44

Malware spam: "Invoice 123456" from random sender in victim's own domain

This fake financial spam appears to come from a random sender in the victim's own domain, but this is just a simple forgery. The payload is Locky ransomware.

Subject:     Invoice 5639438
From:     random sender (random.sender@victimdomain.tld)
Date:     Tuesday, 22 November 2016, 8:43

Attached is the document 'Invoice 5639438'.

The reference number varies from email to email, but is consistent in the subject, body and the name of the attachment (e.g. Invoice 5639438.zip). This ZIP file contains a malicious WSF script (e.g. Invoice 7868933153.wsf) that looks like this.

According the the Malwr analysis, that script downloads from:

manage.parafx.com/98y4h?AdIXigNCmu=UdJVux

There are no doubt many other locations. That same analysis shows a DLL being dropped with an MD5 of de5d8250edf98262f335cd87fe6f6740 and a detection rate of 9/56. The Hybrid Analysis of the same sample shows the malware contacting the following C2 locations:

89.108.73.124/information.cgi (Agava, Russia)
91.211.119.98/information.cgi (Zharkov Mukola Mukolayovuch aka 0x2a.com.ua, Ukraine)

Malware spam: "Delivery status" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to Locky ransomware:

Subject:     Delivery status
From:     Gilbert Hancock
Date:     Tuesday, 22 November 2016, 8:51

Dear Client! Our delivery department could not accept your operation due to a problem with your current account.
In order to avoid falling into arrears and getting charged, please fill out the document in the attachment as soon as possible and send it to us.

In the sample I analysed there was an attachment named document_recipientname.zip (i.e. the first part of the recipient's email address was in the name), containing a malicious javascript with a random name. This particular script (and there are probably many others) attempts to download a component from one of the following locations:

sbdma.com/ri3xnzkaoz
robertocostama.com/qpnst8glsz
kettycoony.com/ahkzls3w
sadhekoala.com/efgqy4tdw
sdwsgs.com/voh7


According to this Malwr analysis, a malicious DLL is dropped with an MD5 of ebf03567c2a907705a026ff0821d8e63 and a detection rate of 6/55. The Hybrid Analysis reveals the following C2 locations:

91.201.202.130/information.cgi [hostname: dominfo.dp.ua] (FLP Anoprienko Artem Arkadevich aka host-ua.com, Ukraine)
95.213.186.93/information.cgi [hostname: djaksa.airplexalator.com] (Selectel, Russia)
188.120.250.138/information.cgi [hostname: olezhkakovtonyuk.fvds.ru] (TheFirst-RU, Russia)
213.32.66.16/information.cgi (OVH, France)

For those Russian and Ukranian networks I would be tempted to block the entire /24 at least, but this is my minimum recommended blocklist:

91.201.202.130
95.213.186.93
188.120.250.138

Malware spam: "Sage Invoice [service@sage-invoices.com]" / "Outdated Invoice" leads to Trickbot

This fake financial spam leads to the Trickbot banking trojan.

From:    Sage Invoice [service@sage-invoices.com]
Date:    17 November 2016 at 10:54
Subject:    Outdated Invoice

This is a customer service e-mail from © Sage (UK) Limited to [redacted]
   
Sage Invoice Payments
Outdated Invoice

You have an outdated invoice from Sage Invoice Payments that needs your attention. To find out more details on this invoice, please see the enclosed document attached to this email.

Malware spam: "Suspicious movements" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to Locky ransomware:

Subject:     Suspicious movements
From:     Marlene Parrish
Date:     Tuesday, 8 November 2016, 12:52

Dear [redacted], Leroy from the bank notified us about the suspicious movements on out account.
Examine the attached scanned record. If you need more information, feel free to contact me.
---
King regards,
Marlene Parrish
Account Manager
Tel.: 202-328-1800
U.S. Office of Personnel Management
1189 E Street, NW
Washington, DC 20415-1000
The names, addresses and telephone numbers will vary from message to message. Attached is a ZIP file (e.g. pdf_recipient_3608c4a.zip) which contains a malicious javascript (e.g. NRV_J51E8_.js) which looks like this (note the insane amount of whitespace).

That particular script downloads a malicious component from one of the following locations:

vexerrais.net/6sbdh
centinel.ca/wkr1j6n
3-50-90.ru/u4y5t
alpermetalsanayi.com/vuvls
flurrbinh.net/6mz3c5q


There will probably be other download locations. This Hybrid Analysis and this Malwr report show the Locky ransomware in action. This version of Locky does not appear to use C2 servers, but instead drops a malicious DLL with an MD5 of 75e6faf192d00b296d89df2cd56c454a and a detection rate of 9/56.

UPDATE

My usual reliable source (thank you) informs me that there are indeed C2 servers (see the end of the post). The download locations are as follows:

Malware spam: "Financial documents" leads to Locky

The never-ending Locky ransomware onslaught continues. This fake financial spam has a malicious attachment:

Subject:     Financial documents
From:     Judy Herman
To:     [redacted]
Date:     Monday, 7 November 2016, 10:53

Hi [redacted],

These financial documents need to be uploaded on the system.
Please let me know if you experience any technical problems.

Best Wishes,
Judy Herman 
Sender names will probably vary. In the sample I saw there was an attachment named fin_docs_f73856f4.zip containing a malicious script NRV_A194008F_.vbs that looks like this. This particular script (and there will be others like it) attempts to download from:

http://coachatelier.nl/lg8s2
http://bechsautomobiler.dk/m8idi9j
http://desertkingwaterproofing.com/ma4562
http://zapashydro.net/6sgto2bd
http://owkcon.com/6xgohg6i

According to this Hybrid Analysis, the malware then phones home to:

195.123.211.229/message.php [hostname: panteleev.zomro.com] (Layer6 Networks, Bulgaria / ITLDC, Latvia)
185.67.0.102/message.php [hostname: endgo.ru] (Hostpro Ltd. / hostpro.com.ua, Ukraine)
188.65.211.181/message.php (Knopp, Russia)

Malware spam: "!!! Urgent payment request" from random senders leads to Locky

This spam comes from random senders, the name in the "From" field always matches the fake email signature. The number of exclamation marks varies, and the payload is Locky ransomware.


Subject:     !!! Urgent payment request
From:     erika.whitwell@hillcrestlife.org (erika.whitwell@hillcrestlife.org)
Date:     Thursday, 3 November 2016, 10:01

ERIKA WHITWELL

Telefon: +49 1592 / 51-2545
Fax: +49 1592 / 5166-2545
E-Mail:
erika.whitwell@hillcrestlife.org

Attached is a file with a long name made of random numbers (e.g. 5148202750-2115939053-201611153218-5476.zip) which contains a similarly-named malicious javascript file (e.g. 8357243996-7378883150-201611233647-0661.js) which looks like this [pastebin].

Analysis is pending. Please check back later.

UPDATE

This Hybrid Analysis shows the script downloading from:

dornovametoda.sk/jhb6576?jPUTusVX=GXNaiircxm

There will be lots of other download locations too. That same report shows the malware phoning come to the following C2 servers (that overlaps somewhat with those found here):

194.28.87.26/message.php (Hostpro Ltd, Ukraine)
93.170.123.119/message.php (PE Gornostay Mikhailo Ivanovich aka time-host.net, Ukraine)

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: "This is to inform that the transaction you made yesterday is declined." leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to Locky ransomware:

Subject:     Transaction declined
From:     Chandra Frye
Date:     Tuesday, 1 November 2016, 10:48

Dear [redacted],

This is to inform that the transaction you made yesterday is declined.

Please look through the attachment for the verification of the card details.

Best Regards,
Chandra Frye
The name of the sender will vary. Attached is a ZIP file (e.g. transaction-details_4688d047f.zip) containing a malicious VBS script (e.g. transaction_details_63EC6F26_PDF.vbs) which looks like this [pastebin]. That particular sample plus one other I received communicates with the URLs below, but you can be sure that there are many more examples:

Malware spam: "Wrong tracking number" leads to Locky

This spam email leads to Locky ransomware:

From     "Samuel Rodgers"
Date     Mon, 31 Oct 2016 15:21:22 +0530
Subject     Wrong tracking number

It looks like the delivery company gave us the wrong tracking number.

Please contact them as soon as possible and ask them regarding the shipment number 302856 information attached.
The name of the sender varies. Attached is a ZIP file named in a format similar to tracking_number_8b5b0ab.zip which in turn contains a malicious VBS script [pastebin] named something like tracking number A99DB PDF.vbs.

That script tries to download a component from:

tastebudsmarketing.com/uw6lin
mechap.com/xd7uh
coffeeteashop.ru/daz2rp
ficussalm.com/0bqzcn96
waynesinew.com/0fqt9he1

There will no doubt be other locations. At present I do not have those or the C2 servers, but will update this post if I get them.

Malware spam: "Payment history" leads to Locky

Another morning, another spam run pushing Locky ransomware:

Subject:     Payment history
From:     Theodore Wilkins
Date:     Friday, 28 October 2016, 10:09

The payment history for the first week of October 2016 is attached as you requested.

Please review it and let us know if you have any question.
The sender name varies from message to message. Attached is a ZIP file named in a similar way to payment_history_aecca55b.zip containing a malicious VBS script [pastebin] (e.g. payment history 6848D10A PDF.vbs). You can see some of the activities of these script in these automated analyses [1] [2].
