IRS.gov "Complaint Case #488870383295" spam / Complaint_488870383295.zip

This spam contains a malicious attachment, but seems to confuse the roles of the BBB and the IRS.

Date:      Mon, 22 Jul 2013 09:59:08 -0500 [10:59:08 EDT]
From:      "IRS.gov" [fraud.dep@irs.gov]
Subject:      Complaint Case #488870383295

You have received a complaint in regards to your business services.
The complaint was filled by Mr./Mrs. Ulivo DELERME on 07/22/2013/

Case Number: 488870383295

Instructions on how to resolve this complaint as well as a copy of the original complaint are attached to this email.

Disputes involving consumer products and/or services may be arbitrated. Unless they directly relate to the contract that is the basis of this dispute, the following claims will be considered for arbitration only if all parties agree in writing that the arbitrator may consider them: Claims based on product liability; Claims for personal injuries; Claims that have been resolved by a previous court action, arbitration, or written agreement between the parties.

The decision as to whether your dispute or any part of it can be arbitrated rests solely with the IRS.

The IRS offers a binding arbitration service for disputes involving marketplace transactions. Arbitration is a convenient, civilized way to settle disputes quickly and fairly, without the costs associated with other legal options.

2013 Council of IRS, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Attached to the email is a ZIP file Complaint_488870383295.zip which in turn contains an executable Complaint_07222013.exe which is bad news. VirusTotal detection rates are a so-so 14/47.

ThreatExpert and Comodo CAMAS give a little background information, but in this case the Malwr analysis seems to be the most comprehensive and shows traffic out the the following compromised sites:

prospexleads.com
phonebillssuck.com
moneyinmarketing.com
abbeyevents.co.uk
salsaconfuego.com
fales.info

The second part has a much lower detection rate of just 2/47. At the moment this second stage is still being analysed.

The BMW 3 Series continues to live up to its hard-earned reputation as the best compact sports sedan in the world. AUTOMOBILE MAGAZINE presented the 3 Series with the coveted 2013 All-Star award, making the number of AUTOMOBILE MAGAZINE awards won by the 3 Series alone over a dozen.

    LIGHTWEIGHT, AGILE, AND STRONG

The Life Module of BMW i vehicles is a high–strength and lightweight passenger compartment made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). This, along with the use of aluminum, offsets the additional weight of the batteries of an electric car. And by reducing the weight, the number of batteries and the average battery charging time can also be reduced.

OVH Hacked

A bad thing to happen, but kudos to OVH for being transparent about this issue:

Hello,

A few days ago, we discovered that the security of our internal network at our offices in Roubaix had been compromised. After internal investigations, it appeared that a hacker was able to obtain access to an email account of one of our system administrators. With this email access, they was able to gain access to the internal VPN of another employee. Then with this VPN access, they was able to compromise the access of one of the system administrators who handles the the internal backoffice.

Until then, internal security was based on 2 levels of verification:
- Geographical: required to be in the office or to use the VPN, i.e.: the IP source
- Personal: password

Measures taken following this incident
---------------------------------------

Immediately following this hack, we changed the internal security rules:
- Passwords of all employees were regenerated for all types of access.
- We set up a new VPN in a secure PCI-DSS room with highly restricted access
- Consulting internal emails is now only possible from the office / VPN
- All those who have critical access now have 3 verification levels:
- Ip source
- Password
- Staff's USB security token (YubiKey)


Findings
-------

After our internal investigation, we assume that the hacker exploited the access to achieve two objectives:
- Recover the database of our customers in Europe
- Gain access to the installation server system in Canada

The European customer database includes personal customer information such as: surname, first name, nic, address, city, country, telephone, fax and encrypted password.
The encryption password is "Salted" and based on SHA-512, to avoid brute-force attacks. It takes a lot of technical means to find the word password clearly. But it is possible. This is why we advise you to change the password for your user name. An email will be sent today to all our customers explaining these security measures and inviting them to change their password.
No credit card information is stored at OVH. Credit card information was not viewed or copied.

As for the server delivery system in Canada, the risk we have identified is that if the client had not withdrawn our SSH key from the server, the hacker could connect from your system and retrieve the password stored in the .p file. The SSH key is not usable from another server, only from our backoffice in Canada . Therefore, where the client has not removed our SSH key and has not changed their root password, we immediately changed the password of the servers in the BHS DC to eliminate an risk there. An email will be sent today with the new password. The SSH key will be systematically deleted at the end of the server delivery process in both Canada and Europe. If the client needs OVH for support, a new SSH key will need to be reinstalled.

Overall, in the coming months the back office will be under PCI-DSS which will allow us to ensure that the incident related to a specific hack on specific individuals will have no impact on our databases. In short, we were not paranoid enough so now we're switching to a higher level of paranoia. The aim is to guarantee and protect your data in the case of industrial espionage that would target people working at OVH.

We also filed a criminal complaint about this to the judicial authorities. In order not to disrupt the work of investigators, we will not give other details before the final conclusions.

Please accept our sincere apologies for this incident. Thank you for your understanding.

Regards,

Octave

Dear Manager,

(If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO,Thanks)

This email is from China domain name registration center, which mainly deal with the domain name registration in China and Asia. We received an application from Huasheng Ltd on July 22, 2013. They want to register " [redacted] " as their internet keyword and China/Asia/Hongkong (CN/ASIA/HK) domain names. But after checking it, we find this name conflicts with your company. In order to deal with this matter better, so we send you email and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China or not?

David Cameron's porn block - how will it work?

This government likes its half-baked ideas, and David Cameron's attempt to bring in mandatory porn blocking in the UK seems to be one of those daft ideas. Yes, ISPs should offer blocking if people want it.. and perhaps they should be made to offer it by law. But there are a number of concerns which are well addressed by this New Statesman article.

Leaving aside the moral debate and the questions over who decides what, there is the tricky question of how ISPs would actually block access to porn.

DNS filtering

The simplest and quickest way to block it is to use DNS filtering. ISPs can simply set their DNS servers to not resolve adult sites. You can do this sort of thing with OpenDNS already. The advantages is that this is fairly easy to implement and it doesn't cause any latency in web traffic. The disadvantage from the point of view of censoring is that it is trivially easy to bypass, simpy change your DNS provider to one that doesn't block sites or access the porn sites through their IP address only where they  have dedicated servers (most big sites do).

Of course, if people bypass the DNS filtering by using non-ISP DNS filters, ISPs could then firewall all outbound DNS requests. But that would interfere with people's freedom to use Google or OpenDNS or other DNS providers if they want.

Deep Packet Inspection

A more sophisticated approach is to inspect every packet and determine where it is going. This should block sites even if the customer has chosen different DNS settings, and it can pick up and negate a lot of common attempts to bypass filters. But this sort of thing is slow and expensive, ISPs would need to pass on the costs to consumers and the added latency of filtering would make web surfing slower. Many businesses use a form of this to protect their corporate network already, but they are prepared to put up with the downsides for the additional protection.

You could still use a proxy, VPN or Tor to get around it. And HTTPS screws some elements of DPI because it is encrypted, there are ways around that but they are extremely messy and had many drawbacks.

And of course there's the privacy issue. If ISPs are slurping all your data to this level then who has access to it? Supporters of DPI may we have a hidden agenda.

IP address blocking

Instead of blocking domains, IP addresses hosting pornography can be blocked. That's a pretty quick and easy solution too, but it means that anything on shared hosting with "adult" content could lead to every other site on that IP being blocked too.. There would be a lot of legitimate sites blocked as a result.


Anti-circumvention

ISPs could use a combination of the above to stop traffic. But it is relatively easy to use a proxy or VPN connection, but the next logical step would be to go to war with providers of these services too. It is very difficult to stop people finding ways around blocks. And remember, we're not talking about illegal material here.. we're talking about perfectly legal material which is blocked by default.

So, in my opinion this approach will have the drawbacks of being a combination of ineffective, expensive and slow. More needs to be done to protect children from accidentally accessing material that they shouldn't have access to (and please could we include malware with that?), but this half-baked approach has the potential to be an expensive fiasco.

Darin Delia's address is also West Florida (although some way from the theoretical location of the IP address). Darin Delia appears to be the same person who was sending out Spotlite Radio spam. Is Mr Delia merely a contractor sending out an email blast, or is he responsible for this so-called "Who's Who" outfit. I have no evidence one way or the other, but it seems he does have some sort of association with whoever is running these things..

Primrose.co.uk were informed of the breach on 4th July and told me that IT were investigating, but as I haven't heard anything back and customers haven't been notified then I will assume they did not find anything.

Of note is that the spam email does not address customers by name, so it is possibly only email addresses that have been leaked. Also, passwords do not appear to be kept in plaintext which is good. Without further information from primrose.co.uk it is impossible to say if any financial data has been compromised.

02086 547426 "PC Wizard" tech support scam

Just a quick one.. some Indian scammers routing through a UK number 02086 547426 (02086547426) and purporting to be from a company "PC Wizard" just called and tried to convince me that something was wrong with my PC.

I'll do a write up later.. but in the mean time their MO is to get you to look at your Event Viewer for errors (there are always) errors, and then visit ammyy.com to run some remote control software. DO NOT LET THEM DO THIS!

Update:
I know this type of scam is quite common, and ammyy.com even admits that it is often abused in this way. There was a degree of sophistication here though in that they had a close approximation of my wife's name and we have an unlisted telephone number.

There were two operatives, the first one handles the initial part of the call and makes you open up your Event Viewer to look for errors and warnings (there are always some of those) and then warns you not to open the warnings or you will damage the computer. Operative number one had an Indian accent and sounded like they were coming in over a voice-over-IP connection.

Once they have you hooked, you get connected to a second Indian operator who attempts to connect to your computer with the ammyy.com remote control software. In this case it was operator 6070592.

After mucking the operator around for 20 minutes I confronted them with what they were doing. He was unapologetic and full of bullshit, and was still trying to connect to my machine.

Of course, the whole thing is a scam. I don't have a support contract for my version of Windows, the errors in my Event Viewer were harmless.. but if I had let the operator take control of my machine then he could have installed any sort of malware on it, or trashed the machine and then charge me a fortune to fix it.

I've been working in the IT field for almost 25 years and frankly it was obvious in the first few seconds that this was a scam. But for a naive user it might seem credible. If (like me) you end up doing tech support for your relatives, it might be a good idea to edit the PC's hosts file to block ammyy.com and www.ammyy.com:

0.0.0.0     ammyy.com
