91.224.135.20 (Proservis UAB, Lithunia)

Something evil on 74.91.117.50

OK, I can see just two malicious domains on 74.91.117.50 but they are currently spreading an exploit kit through this spam run.

The domain is allocated to Nuclear Fallout Enterprises who often seem to host malware sites like this, so there's a good chance that more evil will turn up on this IP.

These are the domains that I can see right now:
13.blumotorada.net
13.carnovirious.net

The domains are registered wit these apparently fake details:
Glen Drobney office@glenarrinera.com
1118 hagler dr
neptune bch
FL
32266
US
Phone: +1.9044019773


Since there will almost definitely be more malicious domains coming up on this IP, it is well worth blocking.

Something evil on 109.123.66.30

109.123.66.30 (UK2.NET, UK) hosts several domains containing the Blackhole Exploit Kit (example here). The domains in user are (mostly) legitimate hacked domains, but there are a couple of odd things here.

Most of the malicious domains have a format like this: 700ff4ad03c655cb11919113011611137102708d4fb6daf0e74bea4aa5e8f9f.darkhands.com - in this case darkhands.com is a legitimate domain registered to an individual in Australia, but it has been hacked to create a who load of malicious subdomains, hosted on another server from www.darkhands.com.

In fact, almost all the domains are registered to Australians, but the key thing is in that all of those cases the main domains are hosted by OrionVM in Australia, with the main domains hosted in the 49.156.18.0/24 block. Update: it seems that a single customer was compromised and the OrionVM issue has been resolved.

So how can the main (legitimate) sites be hosted in 49.156.18.0/24, but the malicious subdomains are hosted on a completely different network in the UK. I suspect that there is a compromise of some sort at OrionVM which has allowed the DNS records to be change (it should be noted that these domains used several different registrars).

Another oddity is that these hijacked domains only go from A to I alphabetically, which indicates that there might be some other malicious servers in this same group. The domains are:

00.co.kr
07drama.com
1001mg.com
1sim.net
20cargo.com
2ndi.com
2seul.net
3gendata.co.kr
atomthecreators.com
bodaguatemala.com
ciudaddelangel.com
colmodasa.com
ctsau.com
cyberdyne.net.au
dafconstructions.com
darkhands.com
deanmathers.com
demon-networks.com
dentistasguatemala.com
dfs-mortgages.com.au
easygosa.com
elitebusinesssupplies.com.au
eliteoz.com.au
enaballet.com
escapeelsalvador.com
fairymeadowsurfclub.com.au
floor-me.com.au
furniturebiweb.com.au
frankflick.com
fwmesker.com.au
gcbustours.com.au
giftsbiweb.com.au
goddessmassage.com.au
goldcoastnorth.org.au
goldcoastpacifictours.com.au
greyfoxjumps.com
grubisaguitars.com
img.or.kr

Also hosted on 109.123.66.30 are some malicious .in domains that were previously on 87.229.26.138 (see here):
gguwvn.in
gmvgyx.in
humswz.in
jlqrnp.in
krvrkh.in
lupszm.in
nwujgl.in
onylkp.in
pmkvyh.in
sirrpk.in
tmthzz.in
ukokqz.in
ymjjjm.in
yxrkyu.in
zjmnwv.in
znztip.in
zpjhjv.in

It looks like there are some legitimate sites on the same server, but blocking 109.123.66.30 is probably a good idea.

As for those subdomains I wrote about, well here are some examples (there are probably many more!)

Cheeky exploit kit on avirasecureserver.com

What is avirasecureserver.com? Well, it's not Avira that's for sure.. it is in fact a server for the Blackhole Exploit Kit.

This site is hosted on 82.145.57.3, an Iomart / Rapidswitch IP that appears to have been reallocated to:
person:         Dimitar Kolev
address:        QHoster Ltd
address:        Apt 1859
address:        Chynoweth House
address:        Trevissome Park
address:        Truro
address:        TR4 8UN
address:        GB
phone:          +13232180069
abuse-mailbox:  abuse@qhoster.com
nic-hdl:        DK5560-RIPE
mnt-by:         RAPIDSWITCH-MNT
source:         RIPE # Filtered


Trevissome Park is a small business park in Cornwall, there certainly isn't a building with over 1000 apartments there, so we can assume that "Apt" is a euphemism for a post box. There's also no company in the UK called QHoster Ltd. In fact, if we check the QHoster.com domain we can see that it is a Bulgarian firm:

    QHoster Ltd.
    Dimitar Kolev        (domains@qhoster.net)
    27 Nikola D. Petkov Str.
    Sevlievo
    Gabrovo,5400
    BG
    Tel. +359.898547122
    Fax. +359.67535954

QHoster has an IP block of 82.145.57.0/25 suballocated to it. A quick poke around indicates not much of value in this range, you may want to consider blocking the /25 as a precaution.

Kenyan Judiciary (judiciary.go.ke) hacked to serve malware

The Judiciary of the Republic of Kenya has a mission to deliver justice fairly, impartially and expeditiously, promote equal access to justice, and advance local jurispudence by upholding the rule of law. Unfortunately, it has also been hacked to serve up malware.


The site has been compromised to serve up an exploit kit being promoted by spam email. There's a redirector at [donotclick]www.judiciary.go.ke/wlc.htm attempting to redirect visitors to [donotclick]dfudont.ru:8080/forum/links/column.php where there's a nasty exploit kit.



Of course, most visitors to the judiciary.go.ke site won't see that particular exploit. But if someone can create an arbitrary HTML page on that server, then they pretty much have the run of the whole thing and they can do what they like. So the question might be.. what else has been compromised? Hmm.

"A.R.T. Logistics" fake job offer

There may be various genuine companies in the world with a name similar to "A.R.T. Logistics Industrial & Trading Ltd", but this job offer does not come from a genuine company. Instead it is trying to recruit people for money laundering ("money mule") jobs and parcel reshipping scams (a way of laundering stolen goods). Note that the scammers aren't even consistent in the way they name the company.

Malware sites to block 14/1/13

A couple of interesting posts over at Malware Must Die!  showed some significant nastiness on a few IP ranges you might want to block. The IPs mentioned are:

91.243.115.140 (Aztek Ltd, Russia)
46.166.169.238 (Santrex, Netherlands)
62.76.184.93 (IT House / Clodo-Cloud, Russia)

I'll list the sites on these domains at the end of the post for readability. But in these cases, blocking just the single IPs is not enough as they reside in pretty evil netblocks which should be blocked altogether.

91.243.115.0/24 (Aztek Ltd) is part of this large collection of malware hosts. Perhaps not all sites in the network are malicious, but certainly a lot of them are. I would err on the side of caution and block access to all sites in this /24, legitimate or not.

46.166.169.0/24 (Santrex) is another horrible network. According to Google, out of 4604 tested sites in this block, at least 3201 (70%) are involved in malware distribution. There may be legitimate sites in this /24, but since customer service is allegedly atrocious then it's hard to see why they would stick around. Again, blocking this /24 is probably prudent.

62.76.184.0/21 (IT House / Clodo-Cloud) is quite a large range to block, but I have seen many malicious sites in this range, and like Aztek it is part of this large network of malware hosts and it has a poor reputation. This is only a part of this netblock, if you want to go further you could consider blocking 62.76.160.0/19.

PPI scam: 0843 410 0078

Short version: 
If you're Googling this number to see who is ringing you, then the short answer is that it is a bunch of scammers trying to get you to make a PPI refund claim. If you end up speaking to a human, then you can either ask them to "remove and suppress" your number, alternatively you can just tell them to fuck off (as there's no real reason to be polite with them).

Long version:
Despite a massive fine handed out to some SMS spammers for pushing PPI and ambulance chasing spam, there are still others about.

One particularly common on is to be called with a recorded message about a PPI refund, and then being given the opportunity to press "5" to connect to an operator.

So, I got one of these today from 0843 410 0078, a number allocated to Jtec UK Ltd (although they are probably just the telecoms provider). It seems that this number block is stuffed full of telepests.

Now, this isn't just spam.. it's a scam. Firstly, I'm not eligible for any PPI refunds, but the scammers are encouraging you to make a fraudulent claim regardless. They're just interested in selling your lead on to the next level in this very seedy world of PPI refund claims.

My conversation with the lady scammer went something like this:

Me: So I'm due a PPI refund am I?

Scammer: Yes, our records indicate that you may be eligible for a refund.

Me: Oh yes? You have records?

Scammer: Yes.

Me: So then, please tell me what my name is.

Scammer: We don't have that information for data protection reasons. [Yeah, but you have my financial records and telephone number, so really you are lying, aren't you?]

At which point I got bored and suggested that the woman fucked off and never called me again, at which point she hung up. I really do recommend being rude to these people incidentally. If you can ruin their afternoon and make them feel shitty about themselves then it's a small victory, they are willing participants in the scam after all.

The problem is that the people working at lead generation at this level will NEVER reveal who they are, and by the time the PPI claim has gotten to someone higher up in the food chain then the lead has been laundered through several middlemen.

Registering with the TPS isn't always as effective as you might think. Mobile numbers seem to expire after a year and need renewing (don't forget, the TPS is run by marketers). If you are TPS registered and still get bombarded with PPI scam calls, then you can try filing an ICO complaint. Or you could try doing it this way. But please remember, if you can make the telepests upset for the whole afternoon then it might make them reconsider their bad career choices..

If you find out who these pests are, or come across any other numbers, please consider sharing them in the Comments. Thanks!

These other numbers appear to be related:
0843 410 2215
0843 410 2576
0843 410 4770
0843 410 0269 (claimed to be from a nonexistant company called "PPI Assistance")

This is the same scam, but may be a different outfit:

The malicious payload is on [donotclick]royalwinnipegballet.net/detects/occasional-average-fairly.php hosted on 89.207.132.144 (Snel Internet, Netherlands) which was hosting another attack site this morning (so best blocked in my opinion)


"Federal ACH Announcement" spam / cookingcarlog.net

This rather terse spam leads to malware on cookingcarlog.net:

From:     Federal Reserve Services@sys.frb.org [ACHR_59273219@fedmail.frb.org]
Date:     8 January 2013 15:11
Subject:     FedMail (R): Federal ACH Announcement - End of Day - 12/27/12

Please find the ACH Letter of Advice Reporting from the Federal Reserve System clicking here. 
The link in the email goes to an exploit kit on [donotclick]cookingcarlog.net/detects/occasional-average-fairly.php (report here) which is hosted on 89.207.132.144 (Snel Internet Services, Netherlands).

Added - a BBB spam is also doing the rounds with the same payload:

Malware sites to block 2/1/13 part II

Here's a bunch of malicious IPs and domains to block, mostly based on this in-depth research at the Malware Must Die! blog.

As far as I can see, the domains in use are exclusively compromised consumer PCs dotted around the globe, rather than compromised or evil web servers.. so the ISPs are pretty irrelevant in this case. This type of infected host has a relatively short shelf-life, possibly just a few days, so you may or may not want to add them to your blocklist.

IPs:
1.169.174.98
5.79.227.65
14.97.222.104
24.14.110.124
