Malware spam: "[Scan] 2016-1003 15:26:26" / "Sent with Genius Scan for iOS." leads to Locky

This fake document scan leads to Locky ransomware:

From:    DAMON ASHBROOK
Date:    3 October 2016 at 10:56
Subject:    [Scan] 2016-1003 15:26:26

--
Sent with Genius Scan for iOS.
The name of the sender, the subject and the attachment name (in this case 2016-1003 15-26-26.xls) will vary somewhat.

This Malwr analysis shows some of the infection in action. Overall my sources tell me that the various malicious macros download from:

Malware spam: "please sign" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to Locky ransomware:

Subject:     please sign
From:     Ricardo Buchanan
Date:     Monday, 3 October 2016, 10:27

Hi [redacted],

I have made the paperwork you asked me to prepare two days ago.
Please check the attachment. It just needs your signature.



Best Wishes,
Ricardo Buchanan
CEO
In the only sample I have seen so far, the attachment name is paperwork_scan_7069f18e6.zip containing a malicious script paperwork scan ~1EB91.wsf plus a junk file with a single letter name. This obfuscated script [pastebin] appears to download Locky ransomware. Analysis is pending.

UPDATE

This Hybrid Analysis clearly shows Locky in action. According to my sources there are no C2s, and the download locations are:

Malware spam: "Receipt 103-526" / Receipt.xls

This spam leads to Locky ransomware:

From     rosalyn.gregory@gmail.com
Date     Thu, 29 Sep 2016 21:07:46 +0800
Subject     Receipt 103-526
I cannot tell if there is any body text, however there is an attachment Receipt.xls which contains malicious code [pastebin] that in the case of the sample I analysed downloads a binary from:

opmsk.ru/g76ub76

There will be many other download locations too. Automated analysis [1] [2] shows that this is Locky ransomware phoning home to:

89.108.83.45/apache_handler.php (Agava, Russia)
91.200.14.93/apache_handler.php [hostname: ef4bykov.example.com] (SKS-LUGAN, Ukraine)
xpcwwlauo.pw/apache_handler.php [hostname: vjc.kz] [91.234.33.132] (FOP Sedinkin Olexandr Valeriyovuch aka thehost.ua, Ukraine)

A malicious DLL is dropped with a detection rate of 6/57. Malicious IPs and domains overlap quite a bit with this earlier attack. This version of Locky encrypts files with a .odin extension.

UPDATE - a source indicates these are all the download locations in this attack:

Malware spam: "Bill for documents" / "Bill for papers" / "Bill for parcel" leads to Locky

This spam leads to Locky ransomware. The sample I have seen have no body text, but have subjects in the format:

 Bill for documents 31564-29-09-2016
 Bill for parcel 08388-28-09-2016
 Bill for papers 657-29-09-2016

Something evil on 69.64.63.77

This appears to be some sort of exploit kit leveraging hacked sites, for example:
[donotclick]franchidiscarpa[.]com/index.php
--> [donotclick]j8le7s5q745e[.]org/files/vip.php?id=4
You can see this EK infecting a legitimate site in this URLquery report. The IP address appears to be a customer of ServerYou:

OrgName:        MegaHosterNetwork
OrgId:          MEGAH
Address:        Zaporozhskogo kazachestva 15
City:           Zaporozhzhe
StateProv:     
PostalCode:     69097
Country:        UA
RegDate:        2012-09-02
Updated:        2012-09-02
Ref:            https://whois.arin.net/rest/org/MEGAH


These other domains are hosted on the same IP:

[donotclick]j8le7s5q745e.org
[donotclick]3wdev4pqfw1u.org
[donotclick]fg1238tq38le.net

All of those domains are registered to:

Registrant Name: sergey muromov
Registrant Organization: sergey muromov
Registrant Street: veteranov 45-87
Registrant City: sank-tpeterburg
Registrant State/Province: leningradckaya
Registrant Postal Code: 458223
Registrant Country: RU
Registrant Phone: +7.66473838987
Registrant Phone Ext:
Registrant Fax:
Registrant Fax Ext:
Registrant Email: muromov96@bk.ru


It looks like there might be a fair amount of activity to the IP at the moment, judging by the number of URLquery reports, so it might well be worth blocking.

Malware spam: "Attached:Scan(70)" and others leads to Locky

This fake scanned document leads to Locky ransomware:

Subject:     Attached:Scan(70)
From:     Zelma (Zelma937@victimdomain.tld)
To:     victim@victimdomain.tld;
Date:     Tuesday, 27 September 2016, 14:15 

There does not appear to be any body text. My trusted source tells me that the subject is a combination of the words Attached / Copy / File / Emailing and Document / Receipt / Scan plus a random two-digit number. Attached is a ZIP file with a name similar to the subject, containing a malicious .wsf scriot.

Evil network: 178.33.217.64/28 et al (evolution-host.com, customer of OVH)

This customer of OVH appears to be registered with fake details, and are distributing malware via a block at 178.33.217.64/28. Currently, the following IPs are distributing some sort of unidentified exploit kit:

178.33.217.64
178.33.217.70
178.33.217.71
178.33.217.78
178.33.217.79

A list of the domains associated with those IPs can be found here [pastebin].

OVH have allocated the IP range to this customer:

organisation:   ORG-JR46-RIPE
org-name:       Jason Reily
org-type:       OTHER
address:        32 Oldfarm Road
address:        GB21DB London
address:        GB
e-mail:         ourbills@evolution-host.com
abuse-mailbox:  ourbills@evolution-host.com
phone:          +353.8429143
mnt-ref:        OVH-MNT
mnt-by:         OVH-MNT
created:        2016-05-24T18:16:03Z
last-modified:  2016-05-24T18:16:03Z
source:         RIPE


There is no such address in London, the postcode is obviously invalid and the telephone number appears to be an Irish mobile phone. Checking the evolution-host.com domain reveals something similar:

Registrant Name: OWEN PHILLIPSON
Registrant Organization: EVOLUTION HOST
Registrant Street: 24 OLDFARM ROAD
Registrant City: LONDON
Registrant State/Province: LONDON
Registrant Postal Code: SW19 3RQ
Registrant Country: GB
Registrant Phone: +353.851833708
Registrant Phone Ext:
Registrant Fax: +44.7479012225
Registrant Fax Ext:
Registrant Email: info@evolutionhost.co.uk
Registry Admin ID: 


Again, an invalid address with a different street number from before and an Irish telephone number. We can look at evolutionhost.co.uk too..

    Registrant:
        Owen Phillipson

    Registrant type:
        UK Sole Trader

    Registrant's address:
        24 Oldfarm Road
        London
        London
        SW19 3RQ
        United Kingdom

    Data validation:
        Nominet was able to match the registrant's name and address against a 3rd party data
source on 09-Feb-2014


Obviously Nominet's validation process isn't worth rat shit. The Evolution Host website appears to have no contact details at all.

RIPE associates the tag ORG-JR46-RIPE with the following IP ranges, all rented from OVH. I suggest you block all of them:

91.134.220.108/30
92.222.208.240/28
149.202.98.244/30
176.31.223.164/30
178.33.217.64/28


UPDATE

A contact says that IP listed at the beginning of the post are the Neutrino Exploit Kit.

Malware spam: "Tracking data" leads to Locky

This spam has a malicious attachment leading to Locky ransomware:

From:    Loretta Gilmore
Date:    20 September 2016 at 08:31
Subject:    Tracking data


Good afternoon [redacted],

Your item #9122164-201609 has been sent to you by carrier.
He will arrive to you on 23th of September, 2016 at noon.



The tracking data (4fec25a8429fd7485c56c9211151eb42d59b57abf402cc363bc635) is attached.


The sender's name and reference numbers vary. Attached is a randomly named .ZIP file containing a malicious .js script named in the format tracking data ~C503090F~.js (the hexadecimal number is random) plus a junk file with a single-letter name.

Analysis of the attachments is pending.

UPDATE

Hybrid Analysis of various samples [1] [2] [3] [4] shows the script downloading from various locations:

akinave.ru/ckk7y
solenapeak.com/ha4n2
vetchsoda.org/uemmdt
akinave.ru/1e11lhrk


All of these are hosted on:

178.212.131.10 (21 Century Telecom Ltd, Russia)
95.173.164.205 (Netinternet Bilisim Teknolojileri AS, Turkey)


The malware then phones home to the following locations:

91.223.88.205/data/info.php (Anton Malyi aka conturov.net, Ukraine)
176.103.56.105/data/info.php (Ivanov Vitaliy Sergeevich aka xserver.ua, Ukraine)

kixxutnpikppnslx.xyz/data/info.php  [91.223.88.209] (Anton Malyi aka conturov.net, Ukraine)

A DLL is dropped with a detection rate of 13/57.

I have only seen a single sample so far, but I understand that reference numbers and names vary. Attached is a malicious .DOCM file with a name in the format OffOrd_87654321-00-1234567-654321.docm , my trusted source says that the various versions download a component from:

It drops a DLL which had a moderate detection rate earlier. This version of Locky does not communicate with C2 servers, so if you want to block or monitor traffic perhaps you should use the string 67SELbosjc358.

Malware spam: "Express Parcel service" leads to Locky

This spam has a malicious attachment:

From:    Marla Campbell
Date:    19 September 2016 at 09:09
Subject:    Express Parcel service

Dear [redacted], we have sent your parcel by Express Parcel service.

The attachment includes the date and time of the arrival and the lists of the items you ordered. Please check them.


Thank you.
Attached is a randomly named ZIP file containing a malicious .js script in the format Express Parcel service ~0A1B2C~.js with a junk w file that seems to contain nothing.

The Hybrid Analysis for one sample shows a download location of:

178.212.131.10/z3zeg (21 Century Telecom Ltd, Russia)

There are probably others (I'll post them if I get them). The payload appears to be Locky ransomware, phoning home to:

195.64.154.202/data/info.php (Ukrainian Internet Names Center LTD, Ukraine)
46.38.52.225/data/info.php (TCTEL, Russia)
ajsrbomqrrlra.pw/info.php [91.223.88.209] (Private Person Anton Malyi aka conturov.net, Ukraine)

It drops a DLL with a detection rate of 8/54.

Inspiral Carpets hacked, leads to The Quantum Code binary options spam

This type of binary options scam spam comes in waves every so often:

Subject:     Welcoming speech
From:     jeffriesvx@mail2nancy.com
Date:     Friday, 16 September 2016, 3:31

Good day!

We are looking for employees working remotely.

My name is Glen, I am the personnel manager of a large International company.
Most of the work you can do from home, that is, at a distance.
Salary is $2600-$5500.

If you are interested in this offer, please visit Our Site

Good day!

It's not very interesting to tell the truth, but it relies on hacked WordPress sites in order to provide landing pages. Of course, hacking someone's site to do this is illegal and no legitimate business would promote itself like this.

What I noticed was the URL in the email..
inspiralcarpets.com/super/wp-content/themes/twentyfifteen/genericons/
Inspiral Carpets? Yup, that's the website of the Manchester rock band of the same name. Rather than a carpet shop. As this URLquery report shows, it lands on..

cash-onlines.com [172.246.233.55] (Enzu, US)

There's a familiar landing page..


Clicking the link goes to www.the-quantumcode.com hosted on 31.220.0.35 (Terratransit, Netherlands). This is some bollocks about a binary options trading robot which will apparently make you millions. Obviously this is a scam, because if it was really that easy we'll all be doing it.

One little scammy trick is a counter to tell you that loads of people are looking at the site but there are only a small number of slots available.

The numbers are completely made up. If you look exactly the same page in another browser window, they are different.


It's hard to say if the spam was sent out by whoever runs the binary options site or an affiliate. But it's still crap either way.

Hosted on the same server are the following domains which are probably more of the same plus a load of other bollocks:

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:

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:

Malware spam: "Order Confirmation xxxxx" leads to Locky

This fake financial spam leads to malware:

From:    Ignacio le neve

This message is intended only for the individual or entity to which it is

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.

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 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

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:

Hi Corina,

Attached is the list of old office facilities that need to be replaced. Please copy the list into the purchase order form.


Best wishes,
Kimberly Snow
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:

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:

Subject:     Shipping information
From:     Charles Burgess
Date:     Thursday, 1 September 2016, 9:30

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):


joeybecker.gmxhome.de/430j1t
ngenge.web.fc2.com/vs1qc0
mambarambaro.ws/1zvqoqf
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)
188.127.249.203/data/info.php [hostname: it.ivanovoobl.ru] (SmartApe, Russia)
xattllfuayehhmpnx.pw/data/info.php [91.223.180.66] (FOP Sedinkin Olexandr Valeriyovuch aka thehost.ua, Ukraine)

The payload is probably Locky ransomware.

Malware spam: "bank transactions"

This fake financial spam comes with a malicious attachment:

From:    Rueben Vazquez
Date:    31 August 2016 at 10:06
Subject:    bank transactions


Good morning petrol.

Attached is the bank transactions made from the company during last month.
Please file these transactions into financial record.


Yours truly,
Rueben Vazquez

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):

www.fulvio77.it/50glk
www.mbeccarini.com/8k8bpxvf

virmalw.name/2lnbr
smc.psuti.ru/rvnfdn26
www.opal.webserwer.pl/hpeqoqgg
www.europegreen.org/va99dis

Each one of those samples drops a different DLL with detection rates of 8/57 or so [4] [5] [6] and according to the Hybrid Analsis reports [7] [8] [9] these phone home to:

95.85.19.195/data/info.php [hostname: vps-110831.freedomain.in.ua] (Digital Ocean, Netherlands)
138.201.191.196/data/info.php [hostname: u138985v67.ds-servers.com] (Hetzner, Germany)
188.127.249.203/data/info.php [hostname: it.ivanovoobl.ru] (SmartApe, Russia)

cufrmjsomasgdciq.pw/data/info.php [91.223.180.66] (FOP Sedinkin Olexandr Valeriyovuch aka thehost.ua, Ukraine)

The payload is probably the Locky ransomware.
