Zbot sites to block 5/12/12

These domains and IPs are involved in malware distribution, especially the Zbot trojan. Most are using the nameservers in the dnsnum10.com domain, or are co-hosted on the same server and have malicious characteristics.

I've come up with a recommended blocklist based on the characteristics on the netblocks in question. If you are based in Russia, Ukraine, Poland or Iran then you may want to review these carefully.

IP addresses and hosts
31.184.244.73 (TOEN Incorporated, UAE)
62.122.74.47 (Leksim, Poland)
77.72.133.69 (Colobridge, Germany)
78.46.205.130 (Hetzner, Germany)
78.140.135.211 (Webazilla, Gibraltar)
85.143.166.132 (PIRIX, Russia)
87.107.121.131 (Soroush Rasanheh Company Ltd, Iran)
91.211.119.56 (Zharkov Mukola Mukolayovuch, Ukraine)
91.231.156.25 (Sevzapkanat-Unimars, Russia)
91.238.83.56 (Standart LLC, Moldova)
146.185.255.161 (Sergeev Sergei Yurievich PE, Russia)
178.162.132.202 (Tower Marketing, Belize)
178.162.134.176 (Silin Vitaly Petrovich, Belarus)
188.93.210.28 (Hosting Service, Russia)
195.88.74.110 (Info Data Center, Bulgaria)
198.144.183.227 (Colocrossing, US)

Single IP list for copy and pasting:
31.184.244.73
62.122.74.47
77.72.133.69
78.46.205.130

"ARK Bureau" (arkbureau.com) fake job offer

The ARK Architecture Bureau is a genuine company. This fake job offer is not from ARK Bureau, but is some sort of illegal activity such as money laundering.

Update: I didn't look closely enough at the site, I discovered that arkbureau.com is also fake, as is this email. See more below. This is still trying to recruit people for money laundering though.

From: Odette Holcomb [mailto:nbnian@esonchem.co.kr]
Sent: 03 December 2012 12:32
Subject: Help wanted.

POSITION: Customer Assistant

ABOUT COMPANY:
ARK Bureau has served hundreds of clients in the United Kingdom, Poland, France and Germany since 1998.

The firm was created by Lorinda Rogers, a young architect of Canadian origin. From its inception, ARK Bureau.s vision for design and construction was based on system approach, incorporating both building and landscape design. That philosophy has always meant the highest quality for our clients. That.s probably why ARK Bureau enjoys a strong loyalty from the past customers.

Now we have open vacancy in the U.S.: Customer Assistant

RESPONSIBILITIES:
- Process payments from customers;
- Filing invoices, statements and associated documents;
- Meet and exceed performance and time management goals;
- Other duties as required.

GENERAL SKILLS:
- High communication skills;
- Strong problem solving and planning skills;
- Experienced computer & internet user.

APPLY:
To apply please: arkbureaumanager@nokiamail.com
An alternative version uses the email address of arkbureau_manager@nokiamail.com. The two samples that I have seen have originating IP addresses of 174.52.171.8 (Comcast, US) and 109.173.54.245 (NCNET, Russia).

You should give this fake company a wide berth unless you want to end up in serious trouble with law enforcement.

Update: I had originally assumed from the amateurish spam email that arkbureau.com belonged to a genuine company. However, a search of UK company records shows no such company, the domain was only registered a month ago to an address which is actually consistent with the one on the site:

Domain Name: ARKBUREAU.COM     
                                  
 Registrant:                      
     N/A
    Allen Hart        (arkbureau@aol.com)
    108 Broadwick Street
    London
    London,W1F 8MT
    GB
    Tel. +44.448715283620    
                                  
 Creation Date: 16-Nov-2012 
 Expiration Date: 16-Nov-2013 


Their site is full of stock images (like the one below) which can be found in many other places, most of which appear to be in the US (where they don't have an office).

Fundamentally, the whole thing is a fake. A good-looking fake, but a fake nonetheless.

These contact details are presumably also bogus:
Int'l Customer Care: +1 646 583 0506

Our head office is located in London, UK:

108 Broadwick Street, London, W1F 8MT, UK
Phone: +44(0) 20 3290 1280
Fax: +44(0) 871 528 3620
Email: info@arkbureau.com

Since 2010 we also run a branch in Warsaw, Poland:

Pl. Pilsudskiego 3, 00-078 Warszawa, Poland
Phone: +48 22 208 4722
E-mail: info@arkbureau.com 
Well, a quick Google of "108 Broadwick Street" indicates that it probably doesn't exist. If we get down on the ground with Google Streetview we can see that Broadwick Street only goes up to number 76 which is a bank of cash machines. Also, the quoted postcode of W1F 8MT is wrong, that belongs to somewhere which is quite a walk from Broadwick Street.

Emails to info@arkbureau.com bounce, there is no such user configured on the server.

arkbureau.com itself is hosted on 64.191.88.71 (HostNOC, US). There are several other sites on the same server that look dedicated to either fraud or fake pharma. I would recommend that all of these sites are avoided:

Dynamic DNS sites you might want to block II

These Dynamic DNS domains belong to a mystery outfit called dnsdynamic.org, and several of them seem to be in the process of being abused by third parties (for example). The registrations seem to be anonymised, some poking around at the recent WHOIS history of one of these domains (freedynamicdns.com) reveals ownership details of:

More digging at invertabrateisp.com comes up with a real name:

      [redacted]      Fax -- 

Anyway, Mr Wilde is  not connected with the malicious activity going on with these domains, but he is providing a service that is being abused. Interestingly he founded DynDNS before selling it on.

Dynamic DNS services can be useful, but my personal recommendation is that you should consider blocking them as the bad guys are very good at abusing them. Overall, these are not as bad as the ones run by ChangeIP.com (see 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.

Vobfus sites to block

These domains and sites appear to be connected to the Vobfus worm, hosted on 222.186.36.108 (Chinanet Jiangsu Province Network). There seems to be quite a bit of this worm about at the moment (auto translated).

This is a short list of domains to block (scroll down to the bottom for more details) all of which appear to be directly connected to the Vobfus worm:

zdns.eu

zdns.eu and ddns1.eu are Dynamic DNS services provided by another party not directly connected to the worm. I recommend you block access to them anyway (more on this at a later date)

The following list is of domains that share nameservers with the Vobfus domains. You can make a decision if you want to do anything about these on your own network.

Gary McNeish, Christopher Niebel fined £440k for SMS spams

I've covered Gary McNeish and his SMS spamming outfit before, they are quite possibly behind the majority of financial SMS spam messages that have been doing the rounds lately.

Well, it seems the ICO finally caught up with him and his business partner Christopher Niebel and have hit the pair with a whopping £440,000. The Daily Telegraph reports that they were pumping out up to 840,000 spam SMS messages per day. The BBC has more details about the pair.

It looks like Mr Neibel has suffered the bulk of the fine, with £300,000 ordered to be paid by the ICO. Mr McNeish lives in Thailand (but owns the spamming company Tetrus Telecom) and has been fined £140,000. Mr Neibel seems a bit upset by this according to reports. Tough shit, I say.

Anyway, this is the guy who probably won't be coming back to the UK any time soon..


Check out some of his semi-naked photos here. Classy!

In this case the download site was [donotclick]amsterdam.cathedralsoft.com/TFOIATVZVT.html hosted on 46.105.140.157 (OVH, Spain). www.cathedralsoft.com is hosted on 94.23.187.176 (also OVH, Spain). It looks like cathedralsoft.com have been compromised in this attack.

BeyondTek IT / Beyond Tek IT / beyondtekit.com spam

Here's an annoying spammer.. but who are they exactly?


From:     Nick Snow ---- BeyondTekIT Nick@beyondtekit.com
Date:     27 November 2012 10:24
Subject:     Your IT Jobs - HR

Hello:

The IT market is extremely HOT right now and there is no doubt that, there is a severe shortage of qualified, experienced IT candidates and an over-abundance of IT jobs being advertised by companies all over the country. It seems, most qualified candidates are in such high demand that they are getting multiple offers, which is making it difficult for companies to fill certain positions.

That being said please let me know if you currently have any hard-to-fill IT positions at  that we could provide candidates for. We can assist with contract, contract-to-hire/temp-to-perm, or permanent positions.

We have candidates available across all technologies and skill-sets, including (this is only a partial list):
Programmers/Developers - Java, C++, .Net, Ruby, Web, Perl, Python, PHP, ColdFusion, etc
Systems Analysts / Business Analysts
QA Engineers/Analysts/Testers
DBA's - SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, etc
SAP Consultants - Technical, Functional, Techno-Functional, Analysts, Developers
Oracle Consultants - Technical, Functional, Techno-Functional, Analysts, Developers
Data Warehouse/Business Intelligence Developers/Engineers - ETL, SSIS, SSAS, SSRS, Cognos, etc
Project Managers
Systems Administrators - Linux, Window, etc
Executive - CIO, CTO, VP of IT, etc

PS - We have just started offering our clients a business model of hiring off-site developers, who can be your employees but working from our office in India. Please ask me for more details, and I can send you our PowerPoint presentation.

Thank you.

The spam (and it is spam) originates from a server on 216.14.62.75 (Telepacific Communications, Los Angeles) which also hosts the beyondtekit.com and beyondtechit.com domains.

So who are BeyondTekIT? (They also spell their name Beyond Tek IT and BeyondTek IT). The WHOIS details for the beyondtekit.com (and beyondtechit.com) are no help because they are anonymised. So, perhaps their website gives a clue.. and indeed they give the following contact details:

BeyondTek IT
1057 E. Imperial Highway, Suite 509
Placentia, CA 92870

Phone: 714-572-1544
Fax:     714-364-9705

General Inquiries:                     info@beyondtekit.com
Candidate Resume Submittals: resume@beyondtekit.com
So, this is a California company. So it must be registered in the State of California? Err.. no. There is no business entity of this name. So let's check out the address.. well, that turns out to be a store called Postal Max that rents out mailboxes.

A bit of hard searching around shows that this is not a US based company at all, but is actually based in India (the email mentions an Indian connection). Their real website is at beyondtech.in and clearly mentions the maildrop address on their contact page.

The WHOIS details for this domain are:

Registrant ID:SB23414228
Registrant Name:Nishant Rastogi
Registrant Organization:One MG
Registrant Street1:23, North Boag Road, TNagar
Registrant Street2:
Registrant Street3:
Registrant City:Chennai
Registrant State/Province:Tamil Nadu
Registrant Postal Code:600017
Registrant Country:IN
Registrant Phone:+91.9444034408
Registrant Phone Ext.:
Registrant FAX:
Registrant FAX Ext.:
Registrant Email:mail@onemg.in


I personally wouldn't recommend giving any personal details to spammers, and I certainly wouldn't recommend giving details to a company that seems to spend some effort to conceal who they really are. But, bear in mind that there are no anti-spam laws in India which explains the high level of Indian spam messages (think SEO spam) that we see, so under Indian law they are probably not doing anything wrong, but surely if they are trading as a California entity then they need to be registered?

203.80.16.81 (MYREN, Malaysia)
208.87.243.131 (Psychz Networks, US)

Note that ganalionomka.ru  is also on the same cluster of servers and will also be malicious. These IP addresses have been used for malware several times, blocking access to them would be a good idea.
