The EK domains are running on a botnet (those are listed in italics). The other domains seem to serve some other sort of nastiness. Those IPs form part of a range rented from Host Europe Group consisting of the following IPs:

62.75.167.186
62.75.167.187
62.75.167.188
62.75.167.189
62.75.167.190

This is roughly analogous to 62.75.167.184/29 which might be worth blocking, but note that won't stop IP traffic to the EK domains which are on different IPs. These IPs are allocated to:

Malware spam: "Attached is the tax invoice of your company. Please do the payment in an urgent manner." leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to Locky ransomware:

Date:     Tuesday, 13 September 2016, 11:22

Dear Client,

Attached is the tax invoice of your company. Please do the payment in an urgent manner.


Best regards,
Kris Allison
The name of the sender will vary. Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file containing a malicious .wsf with a name beginning with "tax_invoice_scan PDF". According to my trusted source (thank you!) the various scripts download a component from one of the following locations:

Malware spam: "Budget report" leads to Locky (and also evil network on 23.95.106.128/25)

This fake financial spam leads to Locky ransomware:

From:    Lauri Gibbs
Date:    12 September 2016 at 15:11
Subject:    Budget report

Hi [redacted],

I have partially finished the last month's budget report you asked me to do. Please add miscellaneous expenses in the budget.


With many thanks,
Lauri Gibbs
Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file which in sample I saw contained two identical malicious scripts:

921FA0B8 Budget_report_xls - 1.js
921FA0B8 Budget_report_xls.js


The scripts are highly obfuscated however the Hybrid Analysis and Malwr report show that it downloads a component from:

lookbookinghotels.ws/a9sgrrak
trybttr.ws/h71qizc


These are hosted on a New Wave Netconnect IP at 23.95.106.223. This forms part of a block 23.95.106.128/25 which also contained Locky download locations at two other locations [1] [2] which rather makes me think that the whole range should be blocked.

A DLL is dropped with a detection rate of about 8/57 [3] [4] which appears to phone home to:

51.255.105.2/data/info.php (New wind Stanislav, Montenegro / OVH / France)
185.154.15.150/data/info.php [hostname: tyte.ru] (Dunaevskiy Denis Leonidovich, Russia / Zomro, Netherlands)
95.85.29.208/data/info.php [hostname: ilia909.myeasy.ru] (Digital Ocean, Netherlands)
46.173.214.95/data/info.php (Garant-Park-Internet Ltd, Russia)
91.214.71.101/data/info.php (ArtPlanet LLC, Russia)

Incidentally, the registrant information on the bad domains is also very familiar:

  Registry Registrant ID:
  Registrant Name: Dudenkov Denis
  Registrant Organization: Eranet International Limited
  Registrant Street: Lenina 18 Lenina 18
  Registrant City: Vladivostok

Malware spam: "Order Confirmation xxxxx" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to malware:

From:    Ignacio le neve
Date:    9 September 2016 at 10:31
Subject:    Order Confirmation 355050211

This message is intended only for the individual or entity to which it is
addressed and may contain information that is private and confidential. If
you are not the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that any
dissemination, distribution or copying of this communication and its
attachments is strictly prohibited.
The name of the sender and the reference number will vary. Attached is a file named consistently with the reference (e.g. Ord355050211.zip) but an error in the MIME formatting means that this may save with a .dzip ending instead of .zip.

Contained within the ZIP file is a malicious .HTA script with a random name (example). This simply appears to be an encapsulated Javascript.

Analysis is pending, my trusted source (thank you) says that the various scripts download from one of the following locations:

The URL is appended with a randomised query string (e.g. ?abcdEfgh=ZYXwvu). The payload is Locky ransomware has an MD5 of 5db5fc57ee4ad0e603f96cd9b7ef048a but I do not have a sample yet.

This version of Locky does not use C2s, so if you want to block traffic then I recommend using the list above or monitoring/blocking access attempts with 7832ghd in the string.

UPDATE: The Hybrid Analysis of one of the scripts does not add much except to confirm that this is ransomware.

Malware spam: "[Vigor2820 Series] New voice mail message from xxxxx"

This spam appears to come from within the victim's own domain, it has a malicious attachment. The telephone number referred to will vary.

Subject:     [Vigor2820 Series] New voice mail message from 01427087154 on 2016/09/08 15:14:54

Attached is a ZIP file with a name in the format Message_from_01427087154.wav.zip which contains a randomly-named and malicious .wsf script. My trusted source (thank you) says that the various versions of the script download from one of the following locations:

Each URL has a random query string appended (e.g. ?abcdEfgh=ZYXwvu)

Unusually, this version of Locky does not seem to have C2 servers so blocking it will involve blocking all the URLs listed above or you could monitor for the string g76gyui in your logs.

Malware spam: "Agreement form" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to malware:

Subject:     Agreement form
From:     Marlin Gibson
Date:     Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 9:35

Hi there,

Roberta assigned you to make the payment agreement for the new coming employees.

Here is the agreement form. Please finish it urgently.

Best Regards,
Marlin Gibson
Support Manager
The name of the sender will vary. Attached is a ZIP file named with a random hexadecimal sequence, containing a malicious .JS script ending with agreement_form_doc.js and in the sample I saw there was also a duplicate..

308F92BC agreement_form_doc - 1.js
308F92BC agreement_form_doc.js


Automated analysis [1] [2] shows that the scripts [partly deobfuscated example] attempt to download a binary from one of the following locations:

donttouchmybaseline.ws/ecf2k1o
canonsupervideo4k.ws/afeb6
malwinstall.wang/fsdglygf
listofbuyersus.co.in/epzugs


Of those locations, only the first three resolve, as follows:

donttouchmybaseline.ws 216.244.68.195 (Wowrack, US)
canonsupervideo4k.ws   51.255.227.230 (OVH, France / Kitdos)
malwinstall.wang       51.255.227.230 (OVH, France / Kitdos)


The registration details for all those domains are the same:

  Registry Registrant ID:
  Registrant Name: Dudenkov Denis
  Registrant Organization: Eranet International Limited
  Registrant Street: Lenina 18 Lenina 18
  Registrant City: Vladivostok
  Registrant State/Province: RU
  Registrant Postal Code: 690109
  Registrant Country: RU
  Registrant Phone: 85222190860
  Registrant Phone Ext:
  Registrant Fax:
  Registrant Fax Ext:
  Registrant Email: volosovik@inbox.ru
  Registry Admin ID:

These are the same details as found here. We know from that incident that the download locations are actually spread around a bit:

23.95.106.206 (New Wave NetConnect, US)
51.255.227.230 (OVH, France / Kitdos)
107.173.176.4 (Virtual Machine Solutions LLC, US)

216.244.68.195 (Wowrack, US)
217.13.103.48 (1B Holding ZRT, Hungary)


The following also presumably evil sites are also hosted on those IPs:

bookinghotworld.ws
clubofmalw.ws
darkestzone2.wang
donttouchmybaseline.ws
canonsupervideo4k.ws
malwinstall.wang
wangmewang.name
tradesmartcoin.xyz
virmalw.name


Currently I am unable to work out the C2 locations for the malware, which is probably Locky ransomware. In the meantime, I recommend you block:

51.255.227.228/30
23.95.106.206
107.173.176.4
192.3.7.198

Malware spam: "We are sending you the credit card receipt from yesterday. Please match the card number and amount."

This fake financial spam has a malicious attachment:

From:    Tamika Good
Date:    5 September 2016 at 08:43
Subject:    Credit card receipt

Dear [redacted],

We are sending you the credit card receipt from yesterday. Please match the card number and amount.


Sincerely yours,
Tamika Good
Account manager
The spam will appear to come from different senders. Attached is a ZIP file with a random hexadecimal name, in turn containing a malicious .js script starting with the string credit_card_receipt_

A Malwr analysis of three samples [1] [2] [3] shows each one downloading a component from:

canonsupervideo4k.ws/1bcpr7xx

This appears to be multihomed on the following IP addresses:

23.95.106.206 (New Wave NetConnect, US)
107.173.176.4 (Virtual Machine Solutions LLC, US)
192.3.7.198 [hostname: ns2.3arab.net] (Hudson Valley Host, US)
217.13.103.48 (1B Holding ZRT, Hungary)


Of interest, the WHOIS details have been seen before in relation to Locky. They are probably fake:

  Registrant Name: Dudenkov Denis
  Registrant Organization: Eranet International Limited
  Registrant Street: Lenina 18 Lenina 18
  Registrant City: Vladivostok
  Registrant State/Province: RU
  Registrant Postal Code: 690109
  Registrant Country: RU
  Registrant Phone: 85222190860
  Registrant Phone Ext:
  Registrant Fax:
  Registrant Fax Ext:
  Registrant Email: volosovik@inbox.ru


Those reports indicate that a malicious DLL is dropped with a detection rate of 9/57.  These Hybrid Analysis reports [4] [5] [6] show the malware phoning home to:

91.211.119.71/data/info.php [hostname: data.ru.com] (Zharkov Mukola Mukolayovuch aka 0x2a, Ukraine)

The name of the sender will vary. Attached is a ZIP file with a random hexadecimal number, containing a malicious .js script beginning with office_facilities_ plus another random hexadecimal number.

Analysis is pending, but this Malwr report indicates attempted communications to:

malwinstall.wang
sopranolady7.wang

..both apparently hosted on 66.85.27.250 (Crowncloud, US). Those domain names are consistent with this being Locky ransomware.

UPDATE 1

According to this Malwr report it drops a DLL with a detection rate of 10/58. Also those mysterious .wang domains appear to be multihomed on the following IPs:

23.95.106.195 (New Wave NetConnect, US)
45.59.114.100 [hostname: support01.cf] (Servercrate aka CubeMotion LLC, US)
66.85.27.250 (Crowncloud, US)
104.36.80.104 ("Kevin Kevin" / Servercrate aka CubeMotion LLC, US)
107.161.158.122 (Net3, US)
158.69.147.88 (OVH, Canada)
192.99.111.28 (OVH, Canada)

Malware spam: "Our shipping service is sending the order form due to the request from your company."

This fake shipping email comes with a malicious attachment:

Dear customer,

Our shipping service is sending the order form due to the request from your company.

Please fill the attached form with precise information.

Very truly yours,
Charles Burgess
The sender's name will vary. Attached is a ZIP file with a random hexadecimal name, containing a malicious .js file beginning with a random sequence and endng with _shipping_service.js.

Automated analysis [1] [2] [3] [4] of two samples sees the script downloading from the following locations (there are probably more than this):

timetobuymlw.in/2dlqalg0
peetersrobin.atspace.com/t2heyor1
www.bioinfotst.cba.pl/u89o4

Between those four reports, there are three different DLLs dropped (VirusTotal [5] [6] [7]). This Hybrid Analysis shows the malware phoning home to:

5.34.183.211/data/info.php [hostname: take.cli] (ITL, Ukraine)
212.109.192.235/data/info.php [hostname: take.ru.com] (JSC Server, Russia)

Good morning petrol.

The name of the sender will vary. Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file containing a malicious .js script with a name consisting of a random hexadecimal number plus _bank_transactions.js.

According to the Malwr report of these three samples [1] [2] [3] the (very sweary) scripts download from these following locations (there are probably more):

This drops Locky ransomware through a malicious attachment. It appears to be largely the same as found in this earlier spam run.

Malware spam: "Emailing: Sheet / Document / Invoice" with a .docm leads to Locky

This malware-laden spam comes with a variety of subjects, for example:

Emailing: Invoice (79).xls
Emailing: Sheet (189).doc
Emailing: Sheet (3352).tiff
Emailing: Document (79).doc
Emailing: Invoice (443).doc
Emailing: Sheet (679).xls
Emailing: Document (291).pdf


There is no body text. Attached is a .docm file with the same prefix as the subject (e.g. Document (291).pdf.docm) which contains a macro that downloads a malicious component from one of the following locations:

abi64.com/h78r3gfe

Malware spam: "Business card" / "I have attached the new business card design." leads to Locky

This spam email has a malicious attachment:

From:    Glenna Johnson
Date:    4 August 2016 at 10:18
Subject:    Business card

Hello [redacted],

I have attached the new business card design.
Please let me know if you need a change


King regards,

Sender names and that long hexadecimal number with vary. Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file containing a malicious .js script beginning with "business card" [example]. The payload appears to be Locky ransomware.

This Hybrid Analysis of the script gives plenty of detail as to what is going on. My trusted sources tell me that the list of download locations is quite short:

escapegasmech.com/048220y5
goldjinoz.com/0a3tg
platimunjinoz.ws/13fo8lnl
regeneratewert.ws/1qvvu9lu
traveltotre.in/2c4ykij7


This drops a binary with a detection rate of 8/54. The earlier Hybrid Analysis report shows it phoning home to:

31.41.46.29/php/upload.php (Relink Ltd, Russia) [hostname: ip.cishost.ru]
185.129.148.19/php/upload.php (MWTV, Latvia)

All of those network blocks have a pretty poor reputation and I recommend that you block their entire ranges.

Malware spam: "Confirmation letter" leads to Locky

Another spam run leading to Locky ransomware..
From:    Mavis Howe [Howe.4267@croestate.com]

Subject:    Confirmation letter

Hi [redacted],

I attached the employment confirmation letter I prepared.
Please check it before you send it out.

The name of the sender varies from email to email. The malicious attachment and payload seem very close to the one described here.

Malware spam: "As you directed, I send the attachment containing the data about the new invoices"

Another day, another Locky ransomware run:

From:    Marian Mcgowan
Date:    3 August 2016 at 11:15
Subject:    Fw: New invoices

As you directed, I send the attachment containing the data about the new invoices

Attached is a randomly-named ZIP file which contains a highly obfuscated .js script  which according to this Malwr analysis downloads a binary from..

blog-aida.cba.pl/2zensi7t

..when decrypted it creates a binary with a detection rate of 4/54. That same Malwr analysis shows it phoning home to:

93.170.104.20/php/upload.php (Breezle LLC, Netherlands) [hostname: pundik.rus.1vm.in]

This IP was seen last night and it seems that there is a concurrent Locky spam run phoning home to:

185.129.148.19/php/upload.php (MWTV, Latvia)
89.108.127.160/php/upload.php (Agava, Russia) [hostname: srv1129.commingserv.com]

Malware spam: "Unable to deliver your item, #000179376" / "FedEx International Ground" leads to ransomware

This fake FedEx email has a malicious attachment.

From:    FedEx International Ground [terry.mcnamara@luxmap.com]
Date:    2 August 2016 at 18:53
Subject:    [REDACTED], Unable to deliver your item, #000179376

Dear [Redacted],

This is to confirm that one or more of your parcels has been shipped.
Please, open email attachment to print shipment label.

Thanks and best regards,
Terry Mcnamara,
Support Manager.
Attached is a ZIP file FedEx_ID_000179376.zip which contains a malicious script FedEx_ID_000179376.doc.js which is highly obfuscated but which becomes clearer when deobfuscated. This Hybrid Analysis on the sample shows that the script downloads ransomware from opros.mskobr.ru but a quick examination of the code reveals several download locations:

opros.mskobr.ru
alacahukuk.com
www.ortoservis.ru
aksoypansiyon.com
samurkasgrup.com


Three of those domains are on the same IP (77.245.148.51), so we can assume that the server is completely compromised. If we extend that principle to the other servers then you might want to block traffic to:

195.208.64.20 (ROSNIIROS, Russia)
77.245.148.51 (Bilisim Teknolojileri Yazilim San. Tic. Ltd. Sti., Turkey)
5.101.153.32 (Beget Ltd, Russia)


A couple of binaries are dropped onto the system, a.exe (detection rate 2/53) [may not be malicious] and a2.exe (detection rate 7/53).

The payload seems to be Nemucod / Crypted or some related ransomware.

Recommended blocklist:
195.208.64.20

Scam: Fanrong Europe Fund / fanrongfund.info / fanrongeuropefund.info / fanrongeuropefund.com

I have received two of these emails, one coming from the IPs 188.69.207.57 and 188.69.223.168 which are both allocated to a mobile phone provider in Lithuania (UPDATE: also 188.69.223.54). The website fanrongfund.info was created just a few days ago (28th July 2016) and is registed to the following (presumably fake) registrant:

The site is hosted (apparently) in the British Virgin Islands on an IP allocated to the Public Domain Registry (PDR). It uses nameservers from Russian company AYBHOST.COM.

The website is pretty generic looking and opens with these words of wisdom:

Our main trade approach is:
"Close the position if it runs to loss, and hold it if it runs to profit".

Hans Messner
fund manager "Fanrong Europe Fund"

What next. "Buy low, sell high"? Here are some screenshots in case you see another version of this on your travels:






The "About" page carries this text:
We are the EU-domiciled investment manager with successful experience in stock trade in EU. Our professional assets managers have personal approach to trade with bear and bulls market. We use self-made investment strategy that allows getting the constant positive result in short-term horizon. All investment process is in full accordance with IIS (International Investment Standards) of Fanrong Capital (Hong Kong) (fanrongcapital.com).
Presumably this is copied off an earlier scam site, in this case there is an official warning about that particular firm.

fanrongfund.info appears to have mirrors at:

Yours sincerely,

The sender will vary from email to email, but the "From" name is always consistent with the one in the email. Attacked is a ZIP file with a random hexadecimal number which in the sample I am looking at contains a malicious .wsf script starting with the words "account record" (sample here).

According to the Hybrid Analysis on that script and Malwr report on a partly deobfuscated version the script downloads a binary from:

oleanderhome.com/q59ldt5r

This dropped binary has a detection rate of 5/55 and is presumably Locky ransomware, but automated analysis is inconclusive [1] [2].

The is also traffic to kassa.p0.ru which is more of a puzzle and doesn't look particularly malicious. I don't know if that is common to all scripts, but it might be worth looking out for in your traffic logs.

If I get more information on this I will post it here.

Malware spam: "Self Billing Statement" / Kathryn Smith [kathryn@powersolutions.com] leads to Locky

This fake financial spam comes with a malicious attachment:

From     Kathryn Smith [kathryn@powersolutions.com]
Date     Thu, 28 Jul 2016 16:21:41 +0530
Subject     Self Billing Statement
I do not know if there is any body text at present. Attached is a file with a name similar to Self Billing Statement_431.zip which contains a similarly named malicious script (e.g. Self Billing Statement_4424.js)

Analysis by a trusted party shows that these scripts download a component from one of the following locations:

This originally dropped this payload since updated to this payload, both of which are Locky ransomware. The C2 servers to block are exactly the same as found in this earlier spam run.
