"Scan from a Hewlett-Packard ScanJet" spam 6/4/12

Another fake HP scan spam email leading to malware. This one follows the new technique of putting a malicious HTML (HP_Scan.htm) file inside a ZIP file to reduce the risk of it being blocked, and then it has multiple payload sites to try to get a higher infection rate. Nasty.

The bad guys certainly seem to have found a way to bring more machines into contact with this malware. Take care!

playbill.com hacked

playbill.com covers listings and tickets for theatre events in New York and London. It's a popular site in the US, ranked 3350 according to Alexa.

Unfortunately, the site has been hacked with exploit code for the Java AtomicReferenceArray unsafe typing (CVE-2012-0507) vulnerability (report here), apparently loading malicious components from dezbvu.dyndns-server.com/forum/s1 (62.76.180.69 - ClodoCloud / IT House Ltd, Russia).

Remember you keep your Java up to date to avoid this sort of drive-by attack.

SMS Spam: "We have been trying to contact you regards your recent accident"

These scumbag SMS spammers are at it again:

URGENT: We have been trying to contact you regards your recent accident; you could be due up to £5,100 in compensation. Reply CLAIM for info, STOP to opt out.

In this case, the sender's number is +447788313443 but this will change as the networks block it.

If you get one of these, you should forward the spam and the sender's number to your carrier. In the came of T-Mobile, O2 and Orange the number to report to is 7726 ("SPAM"). Vodafone customers should use 87726 ("VSPAM") and Three customers should use 37726 ("3SPAM"). Hopefully the carriers will act if there are enough complaints.

"Info in regard to keeping well" spam / ListK LLC

This spam appears to be some sort of probing attack, looking for valid email addresses. In this case, the email was send to an address that didn't actually exist.

From:     Roy Johnson Roy.Johnson@verif1cationtime4.com
Date:     3 April 2012 06:45
Subject:     Info in regard to keeping well.

This is a one time public service message about Attention Deficit
Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHA) and no further emails will be sent.

ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), sometimes called ADD
(attention deficit disorder), is linked with hyperactivity, impulsive
behavior, and attention problems in both children and adults. It's
estimated that up to 12 percent of school-aged children and 6 percent of
adults have ADHD, making it harder for them to focus on tasks, manage
their time, control their behavior, or even sit still.  There is no
single test to diagnose ADD/ADHD. To reach a diagnosis, a doctor or
specialist may do a physical exam to rule out any physical problems, as
well as ask questions about behavior in certain situations.  Treatment is
often a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. The goals of
treatment are to help the person control impulsive behaviors, do better
in school or work, and improve social relationships. Keep well.

This appears to be an attempt to bypass spam filters, and also the relevant spam laws by apparently not being a commercial email message.

In this case, the spam went through a relay at 174.142.85.218, but the originating IP appears to be 208.115.221.34, a Limestone Networks IP suballocated to a outfit called  "24Shells, Feasterville, PA 19053, US" who control a small block of 208.115.221.32/29 (208.115.221.32 - 208.115.221.39) in this range.

So far, I have discovered the following (anonymous) domains and IP addresses connected with this spammer:

174.142.85.218 (iWeb / Listk LLC, Canada)
mx.verif1cationtime4.com

208.115.221.34 (Limestone Networks, US. Suballocated to "24Shells, Feasterville, PA 19053, US")
mail.vprtcls3.com

174.142.82.119 (iWeb, Canada)
mail.3vermethod.com

96.31.93.88 (Noc4Hosts, US)
mx.verif1cationtime2.com

209.54.55.171 (Native Hosting, US)
mx.verif1cationtime3.com

216.245.208.34 (24Shells, US)

173.236.84.2 (Singlehop, US)
mx.4vermethod.com

74.112.248.179 (Triple8, US)
mail.vprtcls1.com

Out of these IPs, 174.142.85.218 is the most interesting. It belongs to iWeb in Canada (Canada is a great home for spammers) but is suballocated to:

ListK LLC has a website at listk.com and are based in Atlanta, Georgia (BBB report here). Their web site gives an indication as to exactly what this spam is about:

NameDiscoverer™ helps clients add net new contacts to their lists by utilizing our proprietary search technology to identify, gather and verify contacts and provide their titles and business email addresses.

SmartSender™ is our state-of-the-art email deployment platform that rotates and pulses emails over multiple servers so your emails never get filtered out as part of a bulk send.

eDNA™ helps companies add fresh, deliverable B2B email addresses to their lists using our proprietary technology - not by matching to an existing, tired list of emails off the shelf.

This describes the spam probe exactly, it is using existing contact details to try to form a valid email address, and then probe it from several different IP addresses to try to bypass spam filters.

In my personal opinion, this is unethical and arguably illegal as the spam is indeed part of a commercial offering. If you receive spam from this outfit, you should report it to their hosting providers. I also recommend complaining to the BBB if you are in the US.

Just for reference the mail headers involved are as follows:

txt4aloan.co.uk SMS spam / Sellers Griffin Ltd

I hate SMS Spam.. this one is particularly annoying.

Loan update: Brand new lender, up to £1000 instant approval all online. No Fees. www.txt4aloan.co.uk Cash within 15 mins. Any credit ok. To opt out reply stop.

In this case the sender was +447867397593 although this will probably change when the number gets blocked by the networks.

So who are txt4aloan.co.uk? Well, that's actually a bit unclear because their website claims that they are Sellers Griffin Ltd, and a quick check at Companies House reveals that there is indeed such a firm at the address they claim:

SELLERS GRIFFIN LIMITED
PEEL HOUSE
30 THE DOWNS
ALTRINCHAM
CHESHIRE
WA14 2PX


Sellers Griffin Ltd appears to be owned by someone called Will King. Essentially, this is a lead generator company who think that SMS spam is an appropriate way to drum up business.

However, the WHOIS details for the txt4aloan.co.uk website are completely different:

Domain name:
        txt4aloan.co.uk

    Registrant:
        Inter Financial Ltd

    Registrant type:
        Unknown

    Registrant's address:
        Mont Crevelt House
        St Sampson
        Guernsey
        GY2 4LH
        United Kingdom

That's a completely different company from Sellers Griffin, again it really does exist (and it has its own website on inter-financial.co.uk). Why are there two unrelated entities? It beats us, but it certainly is odd.

Anyway.. a closer look at txt4aloan.co.uk shows just what kind of company they are. Right at the bottom of the page, you can see the interest rate that they charge:
Representative 1737% APR
No.. that's not 17.37%, that's one thousand, seven hundred and thirty-seven percent interest. No wonder they can afford to send out random SMS spam for that kind of money..

If you get one of these, you should forward the spam and the sender's number to your carrier. In the came of T-Mobile, O2 and Orange the number to report to is 7726 ("SPAM"). Vodafone customers should use 87726 ("VSPAM") and Three customers should use 37726 ("3SPAM"). Hopefully the carriers will act if there are enough complaints.

Evil network: Komplit Plyus LLC / AS56697 (91.226.78.0/24)

I came across Komplit Plyus LLC / AS56697 (91.226.78.0/24) while having a look at this injection attack. At first glance it looked like everything in this /24 was dodgy. After taking a close look, I cannot find a single legitimate site in this range and would strongly recommend that you block it.

A full list of domains and MyWOT scores can be found here.Alternatively, I have highlighted some of the non-pharma sites below, which appear to contain malware sites, money mule sites and other nastiness.

gbfhju.com/r.php injection attack in progress

I haven't seen much buzz about this injection attack yet, but several hundred thousand pages have been infected with an injection attack pointing to gbfhju.com/r.php.

According to this Google search there are 236,000 hits for the search string "gbfhju.com/r.php". The sites seem to be randomly distributed through the web, although I couldn't spot any infected UK or US Government or University sites.

The domain gbfhju.com is registered with a set of details that should be familiar to IT security researchers:

These details are connected to the LizaMoon gang. The site is hosted on 91.226.78.148 which is Komplit Plyus in Russia.91.226.78.0/24 is a real sewer of malware sites, money mule and phishing sites and fake pharma outlets and is well worth blocking.

The following domains are hosted on 91.226.78.148 and they can all be assumed to be dangerous:

fgthyj.com
gbfhju.com
hjfghj.com
statsmy.com
stmyst.com
yourpagestat.com
yourpagestats.com


These other domains are also being used in injection attacks (usually overlapping each other). Blocking the IP range will stop any other attacks coming from this hosting provider.

Mid Bedfordshire Constituency and Nadine Dorries - time to go

I don't often get to write about politics on this blog, and I know that most of my readers won't really care.. so scroll on :)

There are proposals to abolish the UK parliamentary constituency of mid-Bedfordshire (where I live). The current MP is Nadine Dorries who is fighting a desperate rearguard action to try to get the proposals overturned. However, not everybody supports Ms Dorries and her campaign, and it seems to me that the proposals (outlined here) are a very good thing and should be supported.

The deadline for submissions is 30th March, the email address to send them to is reviews -at- bcommengland.x.gsi.gov.uk - obviously you can send what you like, but this is what I have sent:

Dear Chairman,

I am writing to support the dissolution of the Mid Bedfordshire parliamentary constituency for the following reasons:

1) The current constituency does not represent a cohesive entity. It is merely a rural "filler" between the urban areas to the north and south.

2) The proposed boundaries reflect closely "Travel to Work Areas" and takes into account that the north of the county is more closely affiliated with Bedford, and the south of the county with Luton and Dunstable.

Although there are obviously some compromises in the way the proposed boundaries have been drawn up, it is my belief that the proposals have been made with some care and understanding of the demographics of the area. In my view the proposed arrangements will be much better for the residents of the current Mid Bedfordshire parliamentary constituency, and that the constituency should be abolished and new boundaries should be established based on those proposed.
