"Southwest Airlines" spam / headerandfooterprebuilt.pro

This fake Southwest Airlines spam leads to malware at headerandfooterprebuilt.pro:

Upcoming Cruise: 11/20/12 - SLC - Phx Knight 

The malicious payload is at [donotclick]headerandfooterprebuilt.pro/detects/quality_flyes-ticket_check.php hosted on 198.27.94.80 (OVH, US). There are probably other Bad Things on that IP address, I just can't see them yet.. blocking it would be a good precaution.

"W-1" spam / 5.chinottoneri.com

This is a new one, pretending to be from the victim's HR department with tailored fake links in the email that look like they are going to the victim's own domain. Of course, floating over the links reveals that they point to some other domain entirely. A W-1 form is a tax form or some sort from the US Internal Revenue Service.

From: Administrator [mailto:administrator@victimdomain.com]

To All Employee's:

The end of the year is approaching and we want to ensure every employee receives their W-1 to the correct address.
Verify that the address is correct - https://local.victimdomain.com/details.aspx?id=[redacted]
If changes need to be made, contact HR at https://hr.victimdomain.com/update.aspx?id=[redacted].

 Administrator,

In this case, the link bounces through two hacked legitimate sites to end up at [donotclick]5.chinottoneri.com/links/landing-philosophy_dry-suspende.php hosted on 50.61.155.86 (Fortress ITX, US). VirusTotal detections are pretty low. I suspect that there are many other malicious sites on this IP, blocking it would be wise.

J. dee Edwards / jdeeedwards.com scam

I'm not even certain what this scam is, but this is certainly not legitimate:

From: J. dee Edwards j.edwards@jdeeedwards.com

Subject: Edwards contact

Dear Colleague,

We would like you to become a member of working group and share your opinion online. Please review your full name, specialty, country and language by clicking on the link http://www.jdeeedwards.com/contact.php?e=[redacted] or replying to the email.

Thank you for your time.

Copyright 2012 - J. dee Edwards - 20 Broadwick Street London, UK 
Firstly, the email is sent to an address that ONLY spammers use, which is not a good sign. Secondly, the domain jdeeedwards.com has anonymous WHOIS details and was registered just over a month ago - the site is hosted on 54.247.87.188 (Amazon, Ireland) and looks like this:

This fairly badly spelled page (the title is "J. dee Edwards - Human resourcs experts") says:

J. dee Edwards
Human resources experts

We plan, direct, and coordinate the administrative functions of an organization. We oversee the recruiting, interviewing, and hiring of new staff; consult with top executives on strategic planning; and serve as a link between an organization’s management and its employees.

We are comming soon...
Now, there did used to be a company called JD Edwards, but there isn't any more, nor is there a company called J. dee Edwards anywhere in the UK.




The link in the email is some sort of signup thing, I guess it's the first part of a scam to recruit people for some sort of illegal activity.


Oddly, the email address is an "optional" component, so how are they going to contact you? Maybe it's the tracking code in the link.

Alternatively, you can reply by email and this is the third suspect thing, the mailserver is on 85.206.51.81 in Lithunia (AS8764 / LIETUVOS-TELEKOMAS). AS8764 is a pretty scummy netblock according to Google. 85.206.51.81 is also the IP address the spam was sent from.


So, a non-existent company with a month-old domain sends an email to an address only spammers use, from an email server in a dodgy part of cyberspace. Whatever this is, it is some sort of scam and is definitely best avoided.

promotesmetasearch.net promotes malware

From the WeAreSpammers blog:

This looks like a fake get-rich-quick scam email which is actually intended to distribute malware.

Originating IP is 5.39.101.233 (OVH, Germany). Spamvertised domains are 8mailer.com on 5.39.101.225 (OVH, Germany) and promotesmetasearch.net on 46.249.38.27 (Serverius Holding, Netherlands).

This last one is kind of interesting, because a) it's all in French and b) it contains a virus. The malware attempts to download an exploit kit from [donotclick]vodkkaredbuuull.chickenkiller.com/trm/requesting/requesting-pass_been_loaded.php which is kind of unfriendly, hosted on the same IP address.

The WHOIS details show a completely different name and address from the one quoted on the email:

    Florence Buker
    florence_buker05@rockfan.com
    7043 W Avenue A4
    93536 Lancaster
    United States
    Tel: +1.4219588211

Clearly the owner of promotemetasearch.net is up to no good, and I would suggest the Anthony Tomei connection might well be completely bogus.

Cableforum.co.uk hacked?

Cableforum.co.uk is a popular and useful UK site about digital TV and broadband. Unfortunately, the email address list has leaked out and is being used for spamming, for example:

NatWest : Helpful Banking
Dear Valued Member ;

To prevent unauthorized access to your accounts, your online service has been temporarily locked. No further log in attempts will be accepted.
This is a procedure that automatically occur when an invalid information is submitted during the log in process.
Please follow the provided steps below to confirm your identity

This is a standard NatWest phish. It doesn't originate from Cableforum.co.uk or its servers, but it is sent to an address ONLY used for Cableforum, so it must have leaked out somehow.

So.. dutifully I pop across to Cableforum.co.uk and (changing my password en route) find the appropriate forum. It seems that the problem has already been spotted:

Here's one example:

So I received this email today:


Quote:
Date: Fri, 2 Nov 2012 10:15:08 -0400
From: NatWest Online [helpdesk@nwolb.com]
To: [removed]
Subject: Please Review Your Contact Details!!!


Dear Valued Member ;
To prevent unauthorized access to your accounts, your online service has been
+temporarily locked. No further log in attempts will be accepted.

..etc...
The email was sent to an address I've only used to register on Cable Forum and is a series of random characters that spammers wouldn't just 'guess'. Just wondering if anyone else has had this email? 

That's odd. That's exactly the same as me. And then there's another one:

I had two emails sent to both the addresses registered here on Cable Forum. Not sure why the earlier thread was so hastily closed?
Slightly off topic, why can I not edit my email address here?
When I attempt to change it I get this: The email address you entered is already in use. If you have forgotten your password, please click here.
I have not forgotten my password, I was trying to change it as well as my email. 

These are very precise reports from people using unique sign-on addresses. You'd think that would be pretty good evidence. So, armed with that you'd expect a concerned "we'll look into it" response. But instead the replies are:

Spammers don't "pick" anything. Their software generates emails at random and, yes, that includes strings_of_gibberish @yourdomain.

This site has not sold your email address.
This site has not been hacked, cracked or compromised.

The end.

Thread closed.
and

Threads of the same topic that have been closed should not be re-opened/re-created no matter what the circumstances are.

This issue cropped up several months ago and I will repeat what was said then...

We do not believe our systems have been compromised. There was no evidence to suggest an intrusion or breach took place. If anyone has any *Strong* Evidence to suggest other wise then contact us using the contact link below.

Thank you. 
which prompted a response from the original reporter:

The only spam I had was today, didn't have any earlier. I did get an explanation from the mod that closed it about how he didn't feel the thread was useful and that it would attract unwanted replies. But I think preventing people from discussing the issue stinks of a cover up (whether it is or not).

It would be much better to at least post a link to that thread, or some sort of explanation of what they think is happening rather than a dismissive knee-jerk response that it didn't happen when three people have claimed to receive the same email (and Osem says it happened before). All I want is an explanation about what happened and a promise that security of MY data is important but I don't feel like I'm getting that.  
What's worse is that this isn't the first time that this has been reported. Here's another one:

Today I received a not-so-subtle phishing email pretending to come from Santander, sent to my one-off email address associated with my cableforum account. I registered my account in 2009 and it's the first time I get spam/phish on this address. I don't really care if CF was hacked since I used a unique pw/email, but maybe a warning to other users would be the polite thing to do... 

But going back even further shows this thread with a lot of evidence that an email address leak has occured. One person who seems to know their stuff points:

Your database has been dumped and the damage is done as far as spam is concerned
now the question is are you

1) going to stick your head in the sand and thow around accusations
or
2) man up and fix the problem 

One of the Cableforum team shows just how far they can bury their head in the sand

But seriously, all in all, getting back to the main issue, there is about 5 people receiving it to their CF registered e-mail address and reporting it here so far. Co-incidence, yes but a very weak one. 
How many people do you think use unique emails for each site? Not many. That sort of evidence is very, very strong.. especially with multiple reports. That comment got this withering rebuke:

It's not a co-incidence at all. The emails are clearly of the same content and arrived within a small interval of each other and to CF-specific registered email addresses. If you're saying this is purely by chance and that all these email addresses were just "guessed" up by some automated program, then you're in denial.
 But another member of the CF team shows that they just don't understand it at all:

Given the extremely weak evidence provided and this appearing to only affect a very small number of members i.e less than 10, we do not believe that our systems have been breached and as a result we believe this to be the actions of brute force spamming.
Really? All these people with unique email addresses report the same spam. And it just gets dismissed?

But if you have the same problem.. forget it. All threads have been closed, creating new threads on the matter has been banned. In denial much?

Clearly there has been a problem for several months, although it isn't clear when such an address leak occurred or what data was taken with it. You should always assume that the passwords have been compromised and change it, plus change it anywhere that you re-use the same password.

Sadly, crap like this happens to good websites. And the best way to deal with it is to be honest and 'fess up so that members can act accordingly. Nobody likes to think that there site has been compromised, but in this case it clearly has been to some unknown extent.

I emailed Cableforum.co.uk to advise them (since new forum threads are banned). Let's see if I get a response..

Update: and other incidents are here and here.. so this isn't really an isolated problem.

Update 2:  predictably, raising the issue just gets the thread closed with the phrase "There is nothing to discuss and I am not interested in wild theories and stupid accusations that some how there is a cover up." Which just shows that there is a cover up..

Update 3:  and what is really ridiculous is that Cableforum mods are denying it, despite the fact that their site was recently hacked. And it isn't the first time, either.

getyourbet.org injection attack

There seems to be an injection attack doing the rounds, the injected domain is getyourbet.org hosted on 31.184.192.237. The domain registration details are:

Registrant ID:TOD-42842658
Registrant Name:ChinSec
Registrant Organization:ChinSec
Registrant Street1:Beijing
Registrant Street2:
Registrant Street3:
Registrant City:Beijing
Registrant State/Province:BJ
Registrant Postal Code:519000
Registrant Country:CN
Registrant Phone:+86.5264337745
Registrant Phone Ext.:
Registrant FAX:+86.5264337745
Registrant FAX Ext.:
Registrant Email:chinseccdomains@yahoo.com


The domain was created on 12th October. The IP address is in Russia (PIN-DEDICATEDSERVERS-NET).

This is a two stage attack, if  getyourbet.org is called with the correct referrer parameters then the victim ends up at another server at 64.202.123.3 (Hostforweb, US) that tries to serve up a malicious payload. This server contains a bunch of subdomains from a hacked GoDaddy account.

pin.panacheswimwear.co.uk
physical.oneandonlykanuhura.com
pig.onmailorder.com
picture.onlyplussizes.com
person.nypersonaltrainers.com
pipe.payday-loanstoday.com

I've seen this sort of abuse of GoDaddy domains before, the main "www" domain resolves OK, but the subdomains get pointed elsewhere. There's either a problem with GoDaddy or this is done through a phish.

Anyway, block 64.202.123.3 and 31.184.192.237 if you can to prevent further attacks.

Oddly, 84.22.127.43 doesn't seem to be registered at RIPE. No matter, we know who the owner of 84.22.127.0 is:

It's our old friends Cyberbunker again, who have registered the block with fake details. How RIPE lets them get away with this I don't know. If you can, I recommend blocking the entire 84.22.96.0/19 range as almost everything here is pretty seedy. You can read more about Cyberbunker's very dark grey hat activities over at Wikipedia if you want more information.

SMS Spam: "Records passed to us show you're entitled to a refund approximately £2130"

More SMS spam from.. well, I think the ICO will shortly reveal who. It's not just a spam, but it's also a scam because the spammers are attempting to persuade you to make fraudulent claims. Not everyone is eligible for a PPI refund, and I'm certainly not.. no "records" exist, it's just a scammy sales pitch. Avoid.

Records passed to us show you're entitled to a refund approximately £2130 in compensation from mis-selling of PPI on your credit card or loan.Reply INFO or stop

In this case, the sender's number is +447585858897, although it will change as it gets blocked by the networks.

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.

Dynamic DNS sites you might want to block

These domains belong to ChangeIP.com, which I guess is a legitimate company providing Dynamic DNS services, but one that is being abused by the bad guys. These will be used with some random subdomain unless it's a corporate site (like ChangeIP.com itself) pointing to a random IP address somewhere.. so blocking IPs won't work here.

There are two versions of this list, one links through to the Google Safe Browsing diagnostics report in case you want to review them on a case-by-case basis before blocking them (yellow highlighted ones have some malware, red highlighted ones are blocked by Google). The second one is a plain list of everything in case you want to block them completely.

You might notice one of the domains is called b0tnet.com which is a peculiar name for a legitimate business to register.

Fake statistics domains lead to malware

The following fake "statistics" domains lead to malware. All have been registered very recently in the past few days and are used as a redirector to other exploit kits. Perhaps they are actually performing black hat statistical tracking. Blocking them (or the associated IPs) would be wise.

Finally, this long list (too long to post here) contains other detected domains on the same IP. Frankly, blocking the IP address is the most easy option.. there are actually more domains than listed here and some are duplicated, but it's the best I could do at the moment.

Many of these domains show as evil in Google's Safe Browsing Diagnostics (example) and I can file zero legitimate domains on this IP.
