University of Illinois CS department compromised

There's a bunch of malware sites infesting University of Illinois CS department machines in the 128.174.240.0/24, range, mostly pointed out in this post. Compromised machines are tarrazu.cs.uiuc.edu, croft.cs.illinois.edu, tsvi-pc.cs.uiuc.edu, mirco.cs.uiuc.edu, ytu-laptop.cs.uiuc.edu, node3-3105.cs.uiuc.edu and they are on the following IPs with the following malicious domains (I would recommend blocking the whole /24):

Malware sites to block 29/5/13

These domains and IP addresses are connected to this malware spam run and belong to a group I call the "Amerika" gang (because they tend to use fake US addresses for their WHOIS details but really seem to be Russian).

It's quite a long set of lists: first there is a list of malware domains, then a list of malicious IPs and their web hosts, followed by a plain recommended blocklist list of IPs for copy-and-pasting, finally a list of IPs that are advertised as nameservers within this group for research purposes only.

You might notice something odd going on at the University of Illinois in the 128.174.240.0/24 range. Hmm..

I have also seen a similar spam with the subject "Amazon.com order of Sharp UN55EH5080 55-Inch" and I guess there are others. The spam goes through a legitimate hacked site and ends up on [donotclick]federal-credit-union.com/news/basic_dream-goods.php (report here). Luckily right at the moment this domain is suspended and won't work, however. There is a very large number of connected domains though which I am compiling a blocklist for and will post later..

Update: some other subjects include "Amazon.com order of Panasonic UN55EH6030 55-Inch" and "Amazon.com order of Akai NPK55KR9070 55-Inch".

Update 2: the malicious landing page has been replaced  with one using the domain ozonatorz.com.

Something (a bit) evil on 158.255.212.96 and 158.255.212.97

The IPs 158.255.212.96 and 158.255.212.97 (EDIS GmbH, Austria) are hosting malware used in injection attacks (see this example for fussball-gsv.de). These two examples report a TDS URL pattern which is resistant to automated analysis. The domains appear to be part of a traffic exchanger system (never a good idea), but they have been used to distribute malware.

The following sites are hosted on those two domains, plus a link to the Google Safebrowsing diagnostics:
linkstoads.net [no malware reported]
node1.hostingstatics.org [malware reported]
node2.hostingstatics.org
nodeph.hostingstatics.org
numstatus.com [no malware reported]
systemnetworkscripts.org [no malware reported]
finger2.climaoluhip.org [malware reported]
connecthostad.net [malware reported]
netstoragehost.com [malware reported]
nethostingdb.com [no malware reported]

In the cases where no malware has been reported it may well be because Google hasn't visited the site. The domains all have anonymous WHOIS details and have been registered in the past year or so.

I can identify a couple more IPs in this cluster, and I would advise you to treat all the domains here as suspect and add them to your blocklist:
158.255.212.96
158.255.212.97
193.102.11.3
205.178.182.1

prospectdirect.org (Emailmovers Ltd) spam

Everything that this spammer says is a lie:

From:     Emily Norton [emily.norton@prospectdirect.org]
To:     [redacted]
Date:     21 May 2013 16:33
Subject:     Cater to your email marketing needs
Signed by:     prospectdirect.org

Hello,

I hope you don’t mind but I just wanted to contact you to discuss your email marketing strategy. If you don’t currently have one that is working for you then our client can help.

The company I am contacting you on behalf of have the dedicated knowledge and services to cater to your email marketing needs.

If you would like a quote please complete this form: http://prospectdirect.org/email-marketing-strategy

Leave your details at the link above or reply with any requirements.

Kind Regards,

Emily Norton

75 Glandovey Terrace, Newquay, Cornwall TR8 4QD

Tel: 0843 289 4698

This email (including any attachments) is intended only for the recipient(s) named above. It may contain confidential or privileged information and should not be read, copied or otherwise used by any other person. If you are not the named recipient please contact the sender and delete the email from your system. If you would no longer like to receive emails from us please unsubscribe here http://www.prospectdirect.org/landing/page.php?jq=[snip]
Firstly, the email was send to a scraped address from the website of the Slimeware Corporation and isn't any sort of opted-in address at all. The address of "75 Glandovey Terrace, Newquay, Cornwall TR8 4QD" simply does not exist, and the telephone number of 0843 289 4698 appears to belong to a completely unrelated company. I very much doubt there is anybody called "Emily Norton" involved, and there is no company in the UK with the name "Prospect Direct".

The website prospectdirect.org itself carefully hides any contact details, the WHOIS details are anonymous, the domain was created on 2012-07-19 and is hosted on 109.235.51.98 (Netrouting / Xeneurope , Netherlands). There are no contact details on the website and there is no identifying information at all.. it hasn't just been omitted by accident, the whole thing has been left meticulously clean by a professional spamming outfit.


I would recommend giving these spammers a wide berth given their catalogue of lies.

Update: filling in the request form gets a response from Emailmovers Ltd (emailmovers.com / emvrs.co). More on them soon...

Delivery_Information_ID-000512430489234.zip

The file Delivery_Information_ID-000512430489234.zip is being promoted by a spam run (perhaps aimed at Italian users, although all the hosts are German). I don't have a copy of the email itself, but my best guess is that it is a fake package delivery report.

So far I have identified three download locations for the malicious ZIP file:
[donotclick]www.interapptive.de/get/Delivery_Information_ID-000512453420234.zip
[donotclick]www.vankallen.de/get/Delivery_Information_ID-000512453420234.zip
[donotclick]www.haarfashion.de/get/Delivery_Information_ID-000512430489234.zip

The ZIP file decompresses to Delivery_Information_ID-000512453420234.Pdf_______________________________________________________________.exe (note all those underscores!) which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 23/47 and has the following checksums:

MD5: 791a8d50acfea465868dfe89cdadc1fc
SHA1: be67a7598c32caf3ccea0d6598ce54c361f86b0a
SHA256: 9ae8fe5ea3b46fe9467812cbb2612c995c21a351b44b08f155252a51b81095d7

The Anubis report is pretty inconclusive but ThreatTrack reports [pdf] some peer-to-peer traffic and also some rummaging around the Window Address Book (WAB).

Update:  sandrochka.de appears to be hosting the malicious ZIP as well.

"Referral link" spam / rockingworldds.net and parishiltonnaked2013.net

This spam comes from a hacked AOL email account and leads to malware on 62.76.190.11:

From: [AOL sender]
Sent: 17 May 2013 14:12
To: [redacted]
Subject: [AOL screen name]

Subject :RE(8)
Sent: 5/17/2013 2:11:53 PM
referral link
http://printcopy.co.za/elemqi.php?whvbcfm
The link goes through a legitimate hacked site and in this case ends up at [donotclick]rockingworldds.net/sword/in.cgi?6 (report here) which either redirects to a weight loss spam site or alternatively a malware landing page at [donotclick]parishiltonnaked2013.net/ngen/controlling/coupon_voucher.php (report here) which appears to load the BlackHole Exploit Kit. Both these sites are hosted on 62.76.190.11  (Clodo-Cloud / IT House, Russia).

That server contains a number of other suspect domains that I would suggest that you add to your blocklist:
62.76.190.11
bestukdeals2013.net
catpowers.org
gabbingdeals.com
moonflyerss.com

I have several IPs blocked in the 62.76.184.0/21 range, you may want to consider blocking the entire lot if you don't have any reason to send web traffic to Russia.

Wells Fargo and Citi spam / SecureMessage.zip and Securedoc.zip

HMRC spam / VAT Returns Repot 517794350.doc

This fake HMRC (UK tax authority) spam contains a malicious attachment:

From: noreply@hmrc.gov.uk [mailto:noreply@hmrc.gov.uk]
Sent: 16 May 2013 10:48
Subject: Successful Receipt of Online Submission for Reference 517794350


Thank you for sending your VAT Return online. The submission for reference 517794350 was successfully received on 2013-05-16 T10:45:27 and is being processed. Make VAT Returns is just one of the many online services we offer that can save you time and paperwork.

For the latest information on your VAT Return please open attached report.

The original of this email was scanned for viruses by the Government Secure Intranet virus scanning service supplied by Cable&Wireless Worldwide in partnership with MessageLabs. (CCTM Certificate Number 2009/09/0052.) On leaving the GSi this email was certified virus free.

Communications via the GSi may be automatically logged, monitored and/or recorded for legal purposes.

The attachment is VAT Returns Repot 517794350.doc which contains an exploit which is currently being analysed. It is likely to use the same vulnerability as this attack. VirusTotal results are just 1/46, so either this is something completely new or it is a corrupt sample.

UPDATE: ThreatTrack reports that the malware sample appears to make contact with the following IPs which are all dynamic IP addresses, indicating perhaps a P2P version of Zeus:
62.103.27.242
76.245.44.216
86.124.111.218
92.241.139.165

"Invoice Copy" spam / invoice copy.zip

This fake invoice email contains a malicious attachment:

Date:      Thu, 16 May 2013 00:27:41 -0500 [01:27:41 EDT]
From:      Karen Parker [Kk.parker@tiffany.com]
Subject:      invoice copy

Kindly open to see export License and payment invoice attached,meanwhile we sent the balance payment yesterday.Please confirm if it has settled in your account or you can call ifthere is any problem.ThanksKaren parker
The attachment is invoice copy.zip which in turn contains an executable invoice copy.exe which has an icon to make it look like a spreadsheet. VirusTotal results are a pretty poor 7/45 and indicate that this is a Zbot variant.

The Comodo CAMAS report indicates that the malware seems to be rummaging though address books and gives the following characteristics:

Size331776
MD5ebdcd7b8468f28932f235dc7e0cd8bcd
SHA1a3d251b8f488ef1602e7016cb1f51ffe116d7917
SHA2564b15971cf928a42d44afdf87a517d229e4aabbb5967cb9230a19592d2b939fe6

The ThreatExpert report and Anubis report are pretty inconclusive. The ThreatTrack report is nicely detailed and gives some details about network connections which I haven't had a chance to analyse yet.

As ever, blocking EXE-in-ZIP files at the perimeter is the best way to guard against this type of threat.

184.95.51.123 (Secured Servers LLC, US / Jolly Works Hosting, Philippines) appears to be trying to serve the Blackhole Exploit kit through an injection attack (for example). The payload appears to be 404ing when viewed in the automated tools I am using, but indications are that the malware on this site is still very much live.

The domains on this server belong to a legitimate company, Lifestyle exterior Products, Inc. of Florida who are probably completely unaware of the issue.

These following domains are all flagged by Google as being malicious, and are all based on  184.95.51.123. I would recommend blocking the IP if you can, else the domains I can find are listed below:

exteriorbylifestyle.com
hurricanesafecard.com
hurricanesavingsgift.com
hurricaneshuttersdiscount.com
hurricaneshuttersgift.com
hurricaneshuttersrebate.com
hurricanestormsavings.com

lifelinewindows.com
lifestylebonita.com
lifestyleestero.com
