Subject:    Reference Number #89044096, Notice of Unpaid Invoice

Dear Valued Customer,

It seems that your account has a past due balance of $263,49. Previous attempts to collect the outstanding amount have failed.

Please remit $263,49 from invoice #89044096 within three days or your account will be closed, any outstanding orders will be cancelled and this matter will be referred to a collection agency.

The payment notice is enclosed to the letter down below.

Attached is a file invoice_89044096_scan.doc which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 2/54, and which contains this malicious macro [pastebin] which attempts to download a binary from the following location:

thewelltakeberlin.com/92.exe 

This domain was registered only today, and at the moment is not resolving properly. The payload here is likely to be Teslacrypt.

Malware spam: "Israel Burke" / "BCP Transportation, Inc."

This fake invoice comes with a malicious attachment:
From:    Israel Burke [BurkeIsrael850@business.telecomitalia.it]
Date:    14 December 2015 at 15:00
Subject:    Israel Burke

Dear Customer:

Attached please find an invoice(s) for payment.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

We greatly appreciate your business!

Israel Burke
BCP Transportation, Inc.
I have only seen one sample of this, it is possible that the company name and sender names are randomly generated. The attachment in this case was named invoice_scan_76926455.doc and has a detection rate of 3/55.

Despite the name, this is not a Word document but is an XML document [pastebin] containing ActiveMIME data. The Malwr report for this indicates network traffic to:

109.234.34.224 (McHost.Ru, Russia)
80.96.150.201 (SC-Nextra Telecom SRL, Romania)


That Malwr report shows a dropped binary named qqqew.exe which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 5/55.

I am not certain of the payload, but I suspect that this Word document is dropping Upatre leading to the Dyre banking trojan.

Malware spam: "Your order #12345678" / "11 Money Way, Pittsburgh, PA 15226"

This fake financial spam leads to malware:

From:    Giuseppe Sims
Date:    14 December 2015 at 14:19
Subject:    Your order #25333445

Dear Valued Customer,

This letter was sent to you as a formal notice that you are obligated to repay our company the sum of 2,760$ which was advanced to you from our company on October 16, 2015.
Please, find the invoice enclosed down below.

This amount must be repaid until the date of maturity to payment obligation, December 28, 2015 and you have failed to repay our company the same despite repeated requests for this payment.

Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this matter. We look forward to your remittance. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,
Giuseppe Sims
11 Money Way
Pittsburgh, PA 15226
The sender's name is randomly-generated but is always female. Also random are the order number and value, and there is an attachment in the format invoice_12345678_scan.zip that matches the reference in the document.

Inside that ZIP file is a uniquely generated .JS file in the format invoice_XXXXXX.js or invoice_copy_XXXXXX.js which is highly obfuscated (like this) and deobfuscates to something like this.

The various versions of the macro attempts to download a binary from the following location:

miracleworld1.com/80.exe?1

I cannot get this to resolve at the moment, it turns out that the domain was only registered today.

I think they started spamming before the domain records could be pushed out fully. Shame.

Nameservers are DNS1.DONALDDUCKS.IN and DNS2.DONALDDUCKS.IN on 93.189.42.21 (NTCOM, Russia) and 178.33.200.177 (Dmitry Shestakov, Belize / OVH, France) respectively.

Looking at the nameservers, I can see that the following malicious domains are part of the same cluster, and I recommend you block all of them:

gammus.com
miracleworld1.com
soft2webextrain.com


Although I have not been able to acquire the payload, it is almost definitely Teslacrypt.

UPDATE

An updated version of the script is being spammed out that looks like this when deobfuscated. This attempts to download Teslacrypt from the following URLs:

firstwetakemanhat.com/91.exe?1
miracleworld1.com/91.exe?1


This has a detection rate of 4/55. firstwetakemanhat.com was registered just today and is hosted on:


193.150.0.78 (PE Govoruhin Vitaliy Sergeevich, Russia)
84.200.69.60 (Ideal-Hosting UG, Germany)



Nameservers are DNS1.GOGODNS.RU and DNS2.GOGODNS.RU which are hosted on the same two IPs.

The Malwr report shows more details, however this is my recommended blocklist (updated):
193.150.0.78
84.200.69.60 
gammus.com
miracleworld1.com

Malware spam: "Invoice 14 12 15" / "THUNDERBOLTS LIMITED [enquiries@thunderbolts.co.uk]"

This terse fake financial spam is not from the awesomely-named Thunderbolts Limited but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment:
From:    THUNDERBOLTS LIMITED [enquiries@thunderbolts.co.uk]
Date:    14 December 2015 at 11:15
Subject:    Invoice 14 12 15

This message contains 2 pages in PDF format.
Curiously, the bad guys have gone as far as to include a fake header to make it look like a fax:

X-Mailer: ActiveFax 3.92
 
Attached is a file fax00163721.xls which is fairly obviously not a PDF document. So far I have seen two versions of this with a detection rate of 6/55 [1] [2] and which these Malwr reports [3] [4] indicate download a malicious binary from:

exfabrica.org/437g8/43s5d6f7g.exe
test-cms.reactive.by/437g8/43s5d6f7g.exe


This binary has a detection rate of 0/54. That VirusTotal report and this Hybrid Analysis both show traffic to:

199.7.136.84 (Megawire, Canada)

This malware is likely to be Dridex. Given that it is similar to the one found here,  I would recommend blocking network traffic to:

199.7.136.84
221.132.35.56
202.69.40.173

There will probably be other versions of the document downloading from the same location. The binary has a VirusTotal detection rate of 1/54. Those two reports plus this Hybrid Analysis indicate network traffic to the following malicious IPs:

Malware sites and evil networks to block (2015-12-11)

This group of domains and IPs are related to this Teslacrypt attack, sharing infrastructure with some of the malicious domains in question. In addition to Teslacrypt, some of these are connected with PoSeidon, Pony and Gozi malware.

The analysis [csv] includes SURBL and Google ratings, ISP information and a recommended blocklist.

Malicious domains:
auth-mail.ru
blagooooossss.com
brostosoosossss.com

185.18.53.247 (Fornex Hosting, NL)
185.118.64.176/28 (CloudSol LLC, Russia)

I've blocked traffic to 176.103.48.0/20 for two years with no ill-effects, it seems to be a particularly bad network. There may be a few legitimate sites hosted in these ranges, they would mostly be Russian.. so if you don't usually visit Russian websites then the collateral damage might be acceptable.

Malware spam: "Invoice #66626337/BA2DEB0F" leads to Teslacrypt

I have only seen one sample of this fake invoice spam, so it is possible that the invoice references and sender names are randomly generated.

From:    Jarvis Miranda
Date:    11 December 2015 at 08:25
Subject:    Invoice #66626337/BA2DEB0F

Dear Client,

Our finance department has processed your payment, unfortunately it has been declined.
Please, double check the information provided in the invoice down below and confirm your details.

Thank you for understanding.
In the sample I saw, the attached file was named SCAN_invoice_66626337.zip which contained a malicious javascript [pastebin] with a VirusTotal detection rate of 5/54. When deobfuscated it becomes a bit clearer that it is trying to download a binary from:

soft2webextrain.com/87.exe?1
46.151.52.231/87.exe?1


This behaviour can be seen in these automated reports [1] [2]. The downloaded executable has a detection rate of 6/55 and an MD5 of 56214f61a768c64e003b68bae7d67cd2. This Malwr report gives a clearer indication of what the binary is doing, attempting to pull information from:

kochstudiomaashof.de

The screenshots indicate clearly that this is ransomware, specifically Teslacrypt.

Note that the soft2webextrain.com domain is on the same server as softextrain64.com seen yesterday, so 185.118.64.182 (CloudSol LLC, Russia) can be considered to be malicious.


UPDATE
I didn't spot originally that the "soft2webextrain.com" website is multhomed with another IP address on 149.202.234.190 which is an OVH IP allocated to a customer "Dmitry Shestakov" an which forms a small block of 149.202.234.188/30 which is probably also worth blocking.

UPDATE 2
I made an error with one of the IP addresses and specified 185.118.64.183 and it should have been 185.118.64.182.

Recommended blocklist:
185.118.64.182
149.202.234.188/30
46.151.52.231

From:    sales@touchstonelighting.co.uk
Date:    10 December 2015 at 12:02
Subject:    Order 311286 Acknowledged

There is no body text. Attached is a malicious Word document Order Acknowledgement.doc which appears to be exactly the same as the payload used for this spam run.

Malware spam: "STMT ACWL-15DEC12-120106" / "accounts@mamsoft.co.uk [statements@mamsoft.co.uk]"

The following are attached to this email:
XACWL-15DEC12-120106.DOC
Attached is a file XACWL-15DEC12-120106.DOC which I have only seen one variant of so far, with a VirusTotal detection rate of 6/54. According to the Malwr analysis, it downloads a file from:

life.1pworks.com/76t7h/76gjk.exe

There will probably be other versions of the document with different download locations. This executable has a detection rate of 2/54 and according to this Malwr report it contacts:

136.145.86.27 (University Of Puerto Rico, Puerto Rico)

Other analysis is pending, in the meantime I recommend that you block traffic to that IP. The payload is probably the Dridex banking trojan.

In the sample I saw, the attachment was named copy_invoice_20419955.zip which contained this malicious obfuscated script which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 2/55. When deobfuscated it becomes a bit clearer as to what it does, with an attempted download from:

46.151.52.196/86.exe?1
softextrain64.com/86.exe?1


This pattern is the same as the spam run yesterday. The downloaded binary has an MD5 of 42b27f4afd1cca0f5dd2130d3829a6bc, a detection rate of 5/55 and the Malwr report indicates that it pulls data from the following domains:

graysonacademy.com
grassitup.com

Fake "Fretter Inc" spam leads to Teslacrypt ransomware

This email claims to be from the long-dead retailer Fretter Inc, but it is not. Instead it comes with a malicious attachment leading to the Teslacrypt ransomware.

From:    Tonia Graves [GravesTonia8279@ikom.rs]
Date:    9 December 2015 at 14:50
Subject:    Your order #11004118 - Corresponding Invoice #B478192D

Dear Valued Customer,

We are pleased to inform you that your order #11004118 has been processed and ready to be dispatched. However, according to our records, above mentioned invoice is still unpaid.
We would highly appreciate if you sent your payment promptly. For your information, don't hesitate to check the invoice enclosed to this letter or contact us directly.
In case if you have already sent your payment, please disregards this letter and kindly allow us up to 3 business days to clear the incoming payment.

We look forward to your remittance and will the dispatch the goods.

Thank you for choosing our services we sincerely hope to continue doing business with you again.

Sincerely,
Tonia Graves

There sender's name and the reference numbers change in each version. Attached is a file copy_invoice_11004118.zip which in turn contains a malicious script [VT 5/54] which in the sample I investigated was named invoice_iU9A2Y.js. When deofuscated it looks like this.

The Malwr report for that script shows it downloading from:

softextrain64.com/86.exe?1

The script itself shows an alternate location of:

46.151.52.197/86.exe?1

This has a VirusTotal detection rate of 3/55. A Malwr report on just the executable plus this Hybrid Analysis report shows it connecting to:

gjesdalbrass.no

It also tries to identify the IP address of the host by connecting to http://myexternalip.com/raw which is a benign service that you might consider to be a good indicator of compromise.

You can see in the screenshots of that Malwr report that this is ransomware, specifically Teslacrypt.

Malware spam: "EXB (UK) Ltd Invoice" / "Sales [sales@exbuk.co.uk]"

This fake financial spam does not come from EXB (UK) Ltd but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment.

From:    Sales [sales@exbuk.co.uk]
Date:    8 December 2015 at 12:03
Subject:    EXB (UK) Ltd Invoice

Dear Sirs,

Please find attached our invoice, Thank you for your order

Best Wishes

EXB (UK) Ltd
Attached is a Word document named Invoice 1195288 from EXB (UK) Limited.doc which comes in at least three different versions (VirusTotal results [1] [2] [3]) and which contain a complex macro [pastebin] that fails to run in automated analysis tools [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9].

The payload (if it works) is likely to be the Dridex banking trojan.

UPDATE
According to the comments on this post plus some other sources, the macros in these documents download from:

cabezasdealambre.eu/76re459/98uy76t.exe
mfmanastacio.com/76re459/98uy76t.exe

Attached is a file 151124142451_0001.xls which I have seen come in two versions so far (VirusTotal results [1] [2]). Analysis of this malware is pending, but it most likely leads to the Dridex banking trojan.

UPDATE 1
Automated analysis is inconclusive [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6]. It is possible that there is an error in the macro.

UPDATE 2
According to the comments in this post and also some other sources, the the macros download from:

Malware spam: "Your receipt from Apple Store, Manchester Arndale" / "manchesterarndale@apple.com"

This fake receipt does not come from an Apple Store, but is instead a simple forgery with a malicious attachment:

From:    manchesterarndale@apple.com
Date:    7 December 2015 at 09:43
Subject:    Your receipt from Apple Store, Manchester Arndale

Thank you for shopping at the Apple Store.

To tell us about your experience, click here.
Attached is a file emailreceipt_20150130R2155644709.xls which in the sample I analysed has a VirusTotal detection rate of 6/53.

According to this Malwr report, the attachment downloads a malicious binary from:

steveyuhas.com/~steveyuhas/87tr65/43wedf.exe

This has a VirusTotal detection rate of precisely zero.  Those reports indicate network traffic to:

23.113.113.105 (AT&T Internet Services, US)

This is the same IP as seen in this earlier spam run, and I strongly recommend that you block it. The payload is likely to be the Dridex banking trojan.

Attached is a file 1569311-1Z2X12A50495162278.doc which in the samples I have seen has a detection rate of 7/55 and which contains this malicious macro [pastebin]. According to this Malwr report, the macro downloads a binary from:

www.lama.rs/87tr65/43wedf.exe

This has a VirusTotal detection rate of just 1/54. Those two reports plus this Hybrid Analysis indicate network traffic to:

23.113.113.105 (AT&T Internet Services, US)

I strongly recommend that you block traffic to that IP. The payload here is almost definitely the Dridex banking trojan.

I have seen only one sample of this spam with an attachment with a somewhat interesting name of C:\\Users\\HOLLY~1.HUM\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\Inv_107666_from_DATANET.CO..xls which saves on my computer as C__Users_HOLLY~1.HUM_AppData_Local_Temp_Inv_107666_from_DATANET.CO..xls.

According to this Malwr report and this Hybrid Analysis the XLS file downloads a malicious binary from :

Malware spam: "Invoice from PASSION BEAUTY SUPPLY LTD" leads to Teslacrypt

Following on from this earlier spam run, this email has a malicious attachment that loads Teslacrypt ransomware.

From:    Monique Chen [ChenMonique412@magicleafstudio.com]
Date:    2 December 2015 at 19:22
Subject:    Invoice from PASSION BEAUTY SUPPLY LTD

Dear Customer ,

Please review the attached copy of your Invoice (number: IN78350434) for an amount of $470.49.


Thank you for your business
The attachment is named invoice_copy_78350434.zip and it contains a malicious script invoice_copy_BD2E45I62A129S.js which has a VirusTotal detection rate of 2/55. The script is obfuscated (see example) but according to these analyses [1] [2] downloads a malicious executable from:

74.117.183.84/76.exe?1

This has a detection rate of 3/55. The hosts contacts are the same as for the earlier spam run and I recommend you block them.

Malware spam: "November Invoice #60132748" leads to Teslacrypt

This fake financial spam comes with a malicious attachment.


From:    Valarie Davenport
Date:    2 December 2015 at 11:59
Subject:    November Invoice #60132748


Hello ,

Please review the attached copy of your Electronic document.

A paper copy of this document is being mailed, but this email is being sent in addition for your convenience.

Thank you for your business.

Attached is a file invoice_60132748.zip which contains a malicious obfuscated script INVOICE_main_BD3847636213.js [Pastebin obfuscated / deobfuscated] and this downloads a malicious file from:

74.117.183.84/76.exe?1

It also tries to contact 5.39.222.193, but this times out. An attempt to download from bestsurfinglessons.com comes up with a 404 error.

The Malwr report and Hybrid Analysis indicates that this communicates with the following compromised domains:

ccfinance.it
ecaequeeessa.com
schonemaas.nl
cic-la-banque.org


Both those reports indicate that this is the Teslacrypt ransomware.


Furthermore, the Hybrid Analysis report also shows other traffic to:

Supposedly attached is a document MD220EML.XLS but instead all the samples I see just have a Base 64 encoded section instead. Shame. If you go to the effort of decoding them, they are two moderately detected malicious documents (VirusTotal results [1] [2]) which according to these Malwr reports [3] [4] downloads a binary from:

vanoha.webzdarma.cz/4367yt/p0o6543f.exe
det-sad-89.ru/4367yt/p0o6543f.exe

These download locations were seen earlier, but the payload has changed to one with a detection rate of 4/55.  Those earlier Malwr reports indicate malicious traffic to:

193.238.97.98 (PJSC DATAGROUP, Ukraine)

I strongly recommend that you block traffic to that IP. The payload is likely to be the Dridex banking trojan.

rotulosvillarreal.com/~clientes/6543f/9o8jhdw.exe
data.axima.cz/~krejcir/6543f/9o8jhdw.exe


This binary has a detection rate of 3/54. The Malwr report for that file shows that it phones home to:

94.73.155.12 (Cizgi Telekomunikasyon Anonim Sirketi, Turkey)

There are other bad IPs in the 94.73.155.8 - 94.73.155.15 range, so I strongly recommend that you block all traffic to 94.73.155.8/29.

These two Hybrid Analysis reports [1] [2] also show malicious traffic to the following IPs:

89.248.99.231 (Interdominios S.A., Spain)
103.252.100.44 (PT. Drupadi Prima, Indonesia)
89.108.71.148 (Agava Ltd, Russia)
221.132.35.56 (Post and Telecom Company, Vietnam)
78.24.14.20 (VSHosting s.r.o., Czech Republic)


The payload here is probably the Dridex banking trojan.
