This fake DPD message contains a link leading to an exploit kit.

In this case the link goes to [donotclick]seanergia.pl/model.php?dpd=Ny1yrZdnYkTUirJpfIQ6dj79Zbf5481JA1xta2JR54w= (this seems to be 404ing, but it could just be hiding). According to this report the payload is Asprox.

"LLC INC" / llcinc.net fake job offer

This fake company's name looks like it has been designed to be hard to find on Google. The so-called LLC INC using the domain llcinc.net does not exist.

Hello,
  Good day to you overthere we will like to inform you that our company is currently
opening an opportunity for employment if you are interested please do reply with your resume
to recruiter@llcinc.net

Thanks
Management LLC INC 
This so-called job is going to be something like a money mule, parcel mule or some other illegal activity.

The domain llcinc.net was registered just a few days ago with fake details:

There is no website. The email originates from 209.169.222.37, the mail headers indicate that this is probably a compromised email server mail.swsymphony.org.

Geir Myklebust (DHL NO) [Geir.Myklebust@dhl.com] invoice spam has a malicious attachment

Geir Myklebust is a real employee for DHL in Norway, but neither he nor DHL are responsible for this spam run in any way (their systems have NOT been breached either). Instead, it contains a malicious attachment and it should simple be deleted.

Attached is a ZIP file of various different names (e.g. invoice_0257241.zip), containing a malicious executable file invoice_3466198.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/54.

The Comodo CAMAS report  shows an attempted connection to voladora.com/Imagenes/qaws.cab  which is currently coming up with a socket error. I would recommend that you block access to that domain. Further analysis is pending, I will update the post if I find more information.

UPDATE: a second malicious binary is doing the round, this time with a detection rate of 2/53. The ThreatTrack report [pdf] and Anubis report shows the malware performing lookups for a variety of domain names [pastebin] which are not currently resolving, but might be worth blocking.

The link in the email does not go to invoice.sage.co.uk at all, but loads a page from:

which in turn executes the following scripts:

[donotclick]importedjewelryoutlet.com/include/invoice_090914.zip


You would have expected an exploit kit after all this hard work, but not.. it's a plain old ZIP (invoice_090914.zip) file containing a malicious executable invoice_090914.scr which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 8/55.

The ThreatTrack report [pdf] and Anubis report show that the malware attempts to make a connection to:

In order to deal with the attachment new order.7z, you'll need something capable of dealing with .7z files (e.g. 7-Zip). Inside the archive is a malicious executable new order.scr which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 5/54. I have not been able to analyse the malware any further than this.

RBS "Important Docs" spam doing the rounds again

The Royal Bank of Scotland has been spoofed several times recently, this latest fake spam contains a payload that looks like it might be Cryptowall.

This information is classified as Confidential unless otherwise stated. 
Attached is an archive RBS_Account_Documents.zip containing a malicious executable RBS_Account_Documents.scr which has a detection rate at VirusTotal of 4/53. The ThreatTrack analysis [pdf] shows that it attempts to download components from the following locations:

These emails are not from BH Live Tickets and their systems have not been compromised in any way. Instead, these emails are a forgery with an attachment (tickets.3130599.zip or similar) which in turn contains a malicious executable (in this case tickets.332091.exe).

The VirusTotal detection rate for this malware is just 3/55. Comodo CAMAS reports that this downloads an additional component from tiptrans.com.tr/333 which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 4/51.

According to ThreatExpert, This second component POSTs some information to 80.94.160.129:8080 (OVH, France) and also appears to contact 92.222.46.165 (National Academy Of Sciences Of Belarus).

Added: there is at least one other version of the malicious binary, for example this one.  I have seen some reports that there are more.

UPDATE 2014-09-09:
A second spam run is in progress, essentially the same as the first one except some now have a subject in the form "Confirmation of E-Tickets Order Number 0088658".

There are two new binaries, well detected by anti-virus products with a VirusTotal score of 27/55 and 25/54.

In one case the binary downloaded an additional component from plancomunicacion.net/333  which has a detection rate of 25/54 and according to the ThreatExpert report has the same characteristics as before.

Also, the people operating BH Live have put a notice on their website.:

Concerns raised over emails purporting to be from BH Live Tickets
Published on 8 September 2014

Bournemouth, UK, 8 September – At approximately 7.30 this morning BH Live started to receive a high-volume of calls from members of the public in connection with an email purporting to come from BH Live Tickets. The email contains attachment(s) and hyperlinks relating to a booking for Peter Pan.

BH Live's Information Security teams together with information technology professionals and suppliers have investigated the matter and confirm that its internal systems have not been breached and that the emails were sent from known SPAM IP addresses. The emails are not genuine and do not originate from BH Live. A number of precautionary measures have been taken to ensure data, systems and networks continue to be protected.

The public is advised to delete these emails, to not open any attachments or links; ensure they are running the most up-to-date security products and that the operating system has been updated to the latest version. It is recommended that anyone receiving these emails update their passwords over the coming days.

BH Live continues to monitor the situation and is posting updates via websites and social media channels.

Shakira death hoax email comes with a malicious Word document

This Spanish-language spam email reports the (fake) death of Shakira in a car accident. Attached is a Word document that contains a malicious macro.

From:     El Universal [eluniversal@eluniversal.org]
Date:     5 September 2014 14:50
Subject:     Shakira muere en grave accidente

Muere Shakira en grave accidente

Esta madrugada a las 1:10 A.M. en el barrio la Macarena, Colombia. La conocida cantante e intérprete Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, sufrió un grave accidente automovilístico en el cual perdio la vida. Abordo del vehículo también se encontraba su manager, que quedó con heridas graves. Testigos, dicen que el auto conducido por este último, se dirigia a exceso de velocidad..

Para ver imágenes exclusivas y detalles de la noticia adjuntamos un documento con toda la información sobre este trágico acontecimiento.

Ampliaremos.

El Universal © todos los Derechos Reservados  2014.
This approximately translates as:

Shakira dies in serious accident
This morning at 1:10 A.M. in the neighborhood La Macarena, Colombia. The well-known singer and performer Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, suffered a serious car accident in which she lost herlife. Aboard the vehicle was her manager, who was seriously injured. Witnesses say the car driven by the latter, was speeding ..

To view exclusive images and details of the story, we have attached a document with all the information about this tragic event.
When attempting to open the Word document (IMAGENES_01.doc), the potential victim sees the following:


The rest of the document explains to the victim how to remove the security settings from Word, supposedly to enable them to view the pictures. But what will actually happen is that the malicious macro in the document will try to infect the PC.

This malicious document has a VirusTotal detection rate of just 2/54. According to an analysis of the document, it then appears to download additional components from an insecure Joomla site at [donotclick]www.papeleriaelcid.com/aurora/ajax/

This type of spam seems to commonly target Spanish-speaking South American victim (like this one).

In this case the originating IP was 207.150.195.247 (a SouthWeb Ventures IP allocated to a customer supposedly called "Microinformatica Gerencial, S.A. de C.V.").

Blocking the papeleriaelcid.com site and rejecting emails from 207.150.195.247 might be wise if you have Spanish-speaking users.

This fake Companies House spam comes with a malicious attachment.

This email was sent from a notification-only email address which cannot accept incoming mail. Please do not reply directly to this message.

Attached is a malicious PDF file ar01_456746_09042014.pdf which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 5/54. The Malware Tracker report shows that this attempts to exploit the CVE-2013-2729 flaw that was patched over a year ago.. so it may well be that if your version of Acrobat is up-to-date then you will be OK, as you will probably be if you use another PDF reader.

IRMGF (Inspiration Mining Corporation) pump-and-dump spam

Here's another pump-and-dump spam pushing a stock that as far as I can see is utterly worthless.

Billlions in proven reserves just found

Dear Investor,

Every once in a while a ridiculous deal presents itself. IRMGF (or inspiration miniing corporation) is a junior miining company that has properties in Ontario, Utah and Chile and has just found massive reserves of nickel, copper platinum and other rare metals. Walstreet is about to start buying up shares in IRMGF this very quickly as it is so cheap right now trading at just under 10cents. I expect to see this hit a dollar next week. Move quickly.

IRMGF trades on the Toronto stock exchange, it appears to have no income or cash assets but does have land holdings in Ontario. In May 2007 the share price was up to $6.82, today it is around one-hundredth of that at $0.073 a share, according to this data. There are around 75 million shares and options, which gives the firm a nominal market cap of $5.5m.

Trading levels are normally close to zero, but in late May and early June around 5.5 million shares were bought at about $0.15, since when the price halved.

Sometimes there is a pattern of share purchases just before the pump-and-dump operation, but that does not seem to be the case here.. so whoever is promoting this illegal spam run most likely already holds stock in the company.

Don't be tempted to buy stock in this company.. somebody is probably trying to cash out and is using this illegal method to try to maximise their returns. Normally when the P&D spam finishes, the stock price collapses leaving people daft enough to invest out of pocket.

UPDATE:  there have been many more of these over the weekend..

cars4cashuk.com scam and Cyber Cast International (CCIHosting), Panama [190.97.160.0/21]

I spotted this scam warning on the Autotrader website:
We have received reports of customers receiving a text message asking them to visit www.cars4cashuk.com to sell their cars quickly for cash. Customers are asked to pay a deposit in order to secure the sale of their vehicle. This website is not genuine and in no way affiliated with AutoTrader. We are currently working to have this website shut down.

For more information please contact our Customer Security team on 0330 303 9001.
The site is a crude attempt to extract money from unsuspecting people trying to trade their car, but it does feature the AutoTrader logo prominently.


If you're trying to sell your car then probably all you need to know is that it's a scam, and you probably don't need to read any further. But if you read my blog regularly then you might want to read on..

The site has no ownership information, but a check of the WHOIS details show the following contacts:

So who are José Castrellón and CyberCast (aka CyberCast International). Are they the scammers? Well, no.. CyberCast (through their website at ccihosting.com) offer anonymous offshore hosting and domain registrations. The sort of things that scammers love, although of course there are legitimate uses for such things. CyberCast presumably are not doing the actual scamming, but I'd suggest that they could be accused of some level of complicity.


So.. you can buy a domain and web hosting using an anonymous payment system like Bitcoin or Perfect Money and it seems more-or-less do what you like with it. Now, that's great if you are running a web site dedicated to overthrowing an oppressive regime (for example) but the bulk of the sites hosted by CyberCast are a lot less savoury, including phishing sites, sites selling DDOS services, counterfeit goods, trading stolen credit card information, piracy sites, spam, cybersquatting, illegal or fake pharmacies, hacking sites and a little bit of porn as well.

There may well be some legitimate sites hosted by this company, I spotted some local Panamanian sites for example, but the overwhelming majority of the CyberCast / CCIHosting address space is completely toxic, therefore I would strongly recommend that you block access to the 190.97.160.0/21 range from your network.

There is not a lot of reputation data for the sites in this /21, but I have compiled a list of sites, IPs, WOT ratings and Google and SURBL prognoses here [csv].

Vodafone MMS service malware spam

This fake Vodafone spam comes with a malicious attachment. There is not body text as such, the header reads:
From:     Vodafone MMS service [mms813562@vodafone.co.uk]
Date:     26 August 2014 12:00

The version I had was mangled and the attachment was just called noname which required a bit of work to turn into a ZIP file IMG Id 813562-PicYbgRr TYPE--MMS.zip which in turn contains a malicious executable Picture Id 550125-PicSfdce TYPE-MMS.exe

This .EXE file has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/55. The malware then attempts to download additional components from the following locations:

"Ministerio Publico federal 11 08 2014 07:35" spam / informativoministeriopublico.info

This Portuguese-language spam originates from a Brazilian-IP address and has a somewhat convincing domain of informativoministeriopublico.info - but in fact it simply leads to a  malicious attachment.

From:     [victim]
To:     [victim]
Date:     11 August 2014 14:33
Subject:     Ministerio Publico federal 11 08 2014 07:35

The link in the email goes to a bit.ly address that forwards to [donotclick]informativoministeriopublico.info/2014-20090717094507AAtpljuX&ei=sVblU7RHpd-wBKbhgZgG&ved=0CBsQvwUoAAqid=20090717094507AAtpljuX&ei=sVblU7RHpd-wBKbhgZgG&ved=0CBsQvwUoAA.html which has garnered a fair number of clicks according to the bit.ly statistics:

From there the victim goes to a download page (it tries to start automatically) which downloads MPF-747-53.2014.5.01.0466.pdf.zip which contains a malicious executable MPF-747-53.2014.5.01.0466.pdf.cpl which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 16/54.

This trojan downloads other components, although at the moment I am not sure what (you can guarantee it will be nothing good).

The malware site informativoministeriopublico.info has been created specifically for this purpose with anonymous registration details, and is hosted on 192.3.129.10 (ClearVPS / ColoCrossing, US). This IP address has been used for a number of other similar sites:

informativoministeriopublico.info
spc-cobrancas.net
ministeriopublico.net
serasaexperian.biz

The 192.3.129.0/25 range has some questionable sites in it, and you might want to block the whole lot as a precaution. You should definitely block 192.3.129.10 though. 

The originating IP is 200.219.245.194 (Alog-02 Solucoes De Tecnologia Em Informatica S.a., Brazil). The presence of a Brazilian IP address as the sender is interesting, because it does make the email look more legitimate if the headers are examined.

In this case the link goes to a phishing site at anerican-fortress.com/americanexpress/ but there seem to be a bunch of them at the moment:

IPs in use are:

More aggressive spam from the scumbag spammers I have been tracking for a few days [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7].. this time spamming from ColoCrossing IPs. I daresay they will have another spam run starting soon from a completely new IP range.

I'm currently working on some leads as to which particular scumbags are behind this..

UPDATE 1:

The pattern continues, still on ColoCrossing..

IPs:
198.23.159.57
198.23.159.58
198.23.159.59

Domains:
factsautowarranty.com

UPDATE 2:

ColoCrossing seem unresponsive to the problem, here is another batch from the same range.

IPs:
198.23.159.60
198.23.159.61
198.23.159.62

Domains:

Given the volume of spam and lack of action from ColoCrossing, perhaps blocking 198.23.159.0/24 is the best bet.
