Be very careful with email attachments. All of these emails use Social engineering tricks to persuade you to open the attachments that come with the email... The basic rule is -NEVER- open any attachment to an email, unless you are expecting it... The best way is to just delete the unexpected zip and not risk any infection."

Barclaycard phishing ...

13 Oct 2014 - "We are seeing quite a few Barclaycard phishing attempts today trying to get your Barclaycard details. These are not very well crafted and look nothing like any genuine Barclaycard emails. Do -not- click any links in these emails. Hover your mouse over the links and you will see  a web address that isn’t Barclaycard. Immediately delete the email and the safest way to make sure that it isn’t a genuine email from Barclaycard is to type the Barclaycard web address in your browser. and then log in to the account that way...

YouTube Ads lead to Exploit Kits ...
- http://blog.trendmic...hit-us-victims/
Oct 14, 2014 - "Malicious ads are a common method of sending users to sites that contain malicious code. Recently, however, these ads have showed up on a new attack platform: YouTube. Over the past few months, we have been monitoring a malicious campaign that used malicious ads to direct users to various malicious sites. Users in the United States have been affected almost exclusively, with more than 113,000 victims in the United States alone over a 30-day period.
Countries affected by this malicious ad campaign:
> http://blog.trendmic...14/10/malad.jpg
Recently, we saw that this campaign was showing up in ads via YouTube as well. This was a worrying development: not only were malicious ads showing up on YouTube, they were on videos with more than 11 million views – in particular, a music video uploaded by a high-profile record label. The ads we’ve observed do not -directly- lead to malicious sites from YouTube. Instead, the traffic passes through two advertising sites, suggesting that the cybercriminals behind this campaign bought their traffic from legitimate ad providers. In order to make their activity look legitimate, the attackers used the -modified- DNS information of a Polish government site. The attackers did not compromise the actual site; instead they were able to change the DNS information by adding subdomains that lead to their own servers. (How they were able to do this is unclear.) The traffic passes through two -redirection- servers (located in the Netherlands) before ending up at the malicious server, located in the United States. The exploit kit used in this attack was the Sweet Orange exploit kit. Sweet Orange is known for using four vulnerabilities, namely:
    CVE-2013-2460 – Java
    CVE-2013-2551 – Internet Explorer
    CVE-2014-0515 - Flash
    CVE-2014-0322 – Internet Explorer
Based on our analyses of the campaign, we were able to identify that this version of Sweet Orange uses vulnerabilities in Internet Explorer. The URL of the actual payload constantly changes, but they all use subdomains on the same Polish site mentioned earlier. However, the behavior of these payloads are identical. The final payloads of this attack are  variants of the KOVTER malware family, which are detected as TROJ_KOVTER.SM. This particular family is known for its use in various ransomware attacks, although they lack the encryption of more sophisticated attacks like Cryptolocker. The websites that TROJ_KOVTER.SM accesses in order to display the fake warning messages are no longer accessible. Users who keep their systems up to date will not affected by this attack, as Microsoft released a patch for this particular vulnerability in May 2013. We recommend that read and apply the software security advisories by vendors like Microsoft, Java, and Adobe, as old vulnerabilities are still being exploited by attackers. Applying the necessary patches is essential part of keeping systems secure..."

What I think is meant to happen is that a malicious script that has been disguising itself as a GIF file which then renames a component Gl.png to Gl.exe and then attempts to execute it... This executable has a VirusTotal detection rate of 2/53**. It bombs out of automated analysis tools... possibly because it is being executed with the wrong parameters. It also opens a seemingly legitimate PDF file (VT 0/54***) which is designed to look like a Commercial Invoice, presumably to mask the fact that it is doing something malicious in the background.

FBI warns of Chinese cyber campaign
- http://www.washingto...0453_story.html
Oct 15, 2014 - "The FBI on Wednesday issued a private warning to industry that a group of highly skilled Chinese government hackers was in the midst of a long-running campaign to steal valuable data from U.S. companies and government agencies. “These state-sponsored hackers are exceedingly stealthy and agile by comparison with the People’s Liberation Army Unit 61398... whose activity was publicly disclosed and attributed by security researchers in February 2013,” said the FBI in its alert, which referred to a Chinese military hacker unit exposed in a widely publicized report by the security firm Mandiant... The group, the FBI said, has deployed at least four “zero-day exploits” or hacking tools based on previously unknown flaws in Microsoft’s Windows operating system, which reflects a considerable degree of prowess as zero-day flaws are difficult to find in software. The bureau’s nine-page alert contained some “indicators of compromise” that companies could use to determine if they have been hacked by the group..."

17 Oct 2014 - "'October 17, 2014 SalesForce Security Update' pretending to come from SalesForce .com <no-reply@ salesforce .com> is another one from the current bot runs which try to download various Zbots, cryptolocker, ransomware and loads of other malware on your computer. They are using email addresses and subjects that will entice a user to read the email and open the attachment... The malware inside this zip file is at this time -undetected- by any antivirus on Virus Total* and to make it much worse the Virus Total engine tries to tell you that the file is Probably harmless! There are strong indicators suggesting that this file is safe to use. This is an even bigger problem than it normally would be because of the recent Poodle bug and servers consequently changing their encryption routines to remove the vulnerable SSLv3 version from being used. It is eminently believable that you might need to change the SSL certificate on your browser to comply with the new behaviour if you are not a security or network IT specialist. This is obviously -wrong- and this type of malware that disguises itself as a legitimate file and can apparently conceal the malicious functions from an antivirus scan and make it believe it is innocent is very worrying. The MALWR analysis doesn’t show -anything- wrong and doesn’t show any network connections or other files downloaded. Anubis also comes up with a -nothing- on this one... a couple of manual analysis done by Virus total** users who find it -is- malicious... drops this file which -is- detected... Our friends at TechHelpList(1) have done an analysis on this one which clearly shows its bad behaviour and what it connects to and downloads...

More Free Facebook Hacks ...
- https://blog.malware...surface-online/
Oct 16, 2014 - "... more sites claiming to offer hacking services that target Facebook users. The sites are:
    fbwand(dot)com
> https://blog.malware...4/10/fbwand.png

    hackfbaccountlive(dot)com
> https://blog.malware...accountlive.png

One starts off by entering the profile URL of the Facebook user account (the target) he/she wants to hack. The site then makes him/her believe that an -actual- hacking is ongoing, firstly, by retrieving and displaying specific information from Facebook’s Graph Search*, such as user ID, user name, and a large version of the profile photo, to the page; and, secondly, by providing the attacker the progress of completion of each hacking attempt. Below are screenshots of these attempts, beginning with purportedly fetching the target’s email ID:
> https://blog.malware...erify.png?w=564
After a successful “hack”, the site informs the attacker that they have created an account for them on the website, complete with a generated user name and password, and that they have to log in to their accounts to retrieve the target’s Facebook account details. Just when it seems too easy, the attacker sees this upon logging in:
> https://blog.malware...ckers-panel.png
He/She is instructed to unlock the details in two ways. One is to share a generated referral link to their social networks (particularly Facebook and/or Twitter) in order to get 15 visitors to click it... Although it’s true that no website is perfectly secure one must not attempt to hack into them nor break into someone else’s online profile. These are illegal acts. Sites marketing themselves as free, user-friendly hacking-as-a-service (HaaS) tool, such as those I mentioned here, generally takes advantage of user distrust against someone and profits on it, promising big but deliver nothing in the end. Avoid them at all cost."

CUTWAIL Spambot Leads to UPATRE-DYRE Infection
- http://blog.trendmic...dyre-infection/
Oct 16, 2014 - "... new spam attack disguised as invoice message notifications was recently seen spreading the UPATRE malware, that ultimately downloads its final payload- a BANKER malware related to the DYREZA/DYRE banking malware... In early October we observed a surge of spammed messages sent by the botnet CUTWAIL/PUSHDO, totaling to more than 18,000 messages seen in a single day. CUTWAIL/PUSHDO has been in the wild since as early as 2007 and was considered one of the biggest spam botnets in 2009. We spotted some spammed emails that disguise itself as invoice message notifications or “new alert messages” from various companies and institutions.
Screenshot of spammed messages related to CUTWAIL/PUSHDO:
> http://blog.trendmic...ail_samples.jpg
Top spam sending countries for this CUTWAIL spam run:
> http://blog.trendmic...ountries-01.jpg
... Based on our 1H 2014 spam report, UPATRE is the top malware seen in spam emails. With its continuously developing techniques, UPATRE remains as one of most prevalent malware today. Examples of newer UPATRE techniques are its ability to use password-protected archives as attachments, and abuse of online file storage platform, Dropbox in order to bypass spam filters.
Top malware distributed via spam as of August 2014:
> http://blog.trendmic...pambot_fig1.jpg
... in this attack, this UPATRE variant, TROJ_UPATRE.YYJS downloads the final payload, TSPY_BANKER.COR, which is related to DYREZA/DYRE banking malware. The DYREZA malware is a banking malware with the following capabilities:
- Performs man-in-the-middle attacks via browser injections
- Steals banking credentials and monitors online banking session/transactions
- Steals browser snapshots and other information
Based on our analysis, TSPY_BANKER.COR connects to several websites to receive and send information. Given this series of malware infections, affected systems also run the risk of having their sensitive data stolen (such as banking credentials data) in order to be used for other future attacks. Apart from the risk of stolen information, this spam attack also highlights the risk of traditional threats (like spam) being used as a vehicle for -other- advanced malware to infect systems. This may consequently even lead to infiltrating an entire enterprise network... We highly recommend that users take extra caution when dealing with emails that contain attachments and URLs in the email body. Ensure that the domains are legitimate and take note of the company name indicated in the email. Another tip is to steer clear of suspicious-looking archive files attached to emails, such as those ending in .ZIP, or .RAR. UPATRE is also known to use email templates through DocuSign with emails that come in the form of -bank- notifications, -court- notices, and -receipts- ..."

Fake PDF invoice SPAM
- http://www.symantec....more-you-expect
Oct 20, 2014 - "... Over the past week, Symantec has observed a spam campaign involving suspicious emails that masquerade as unpaid invoices. However, these suspicious emails come with a nasty surprise attached in the form of a malicious .pdf file.
Malicious .pdf file attached to suspicious email:
> http://www.symantec....031/Fig1_19.png
While these invoices may appear to be legitimate because the sender’s email address may be associated with a major company, the emails contain spelling errors in the subject line and the body of the email contains just one line of text. Most business emails contain a personal greeting to the recipient and the sender’s signature, but these emails have neither. These signs should serve as warnings to users that the email is not what it claims to be. The attached .pdf file has malicious shellcode hidden inside of it that will be executed when opened with a vulnerable version of Adobe Reader... attackers are trying to exploit the Adobe Acrobat and Reader Unspecified Remote Integer Overflow Vulnerability (CVE-2013-2729) by triggering the vulnerability while parsing the crafted Bitmap encoded image... The embedded shellcode acts as a downloader which downloads a malicious executable file (Infostealer.Dyranges) from a remote location. The downloaded malware attempts to install itself as a service called “google update service”... If successful, the malware is then able to steal confidential information entered into Web browsers by the user. Symantec recommends that users exercise caution when opening emails and attachments from unexpected or unknown senders. We also advise that PDF viewers and security software be kept up-to-date. Symantec detects the malicious .pdf file used in this campaign as Trojan.Pidief*."

Instead, the email claims, the document can be viewed by clicking on the link included in the message. However, the link opens a -fake- Dropbox login page, hosted on Dropbox itself.
Fake Dropbox login page:
> http://www.symantec....1/Dropbox 1.png
The -fake- login page is hosted on Dropbox's user content domain (like shared photos and other files are) and is served over SSL, making the attack more dangerous and convincing. The page looks like the real Dropbox login page, but with one crucial difference. The scammers are interested in phishing for more than just Dropbox credentials; they have also included logos of popular Web-based email services, suggesting that users can log in using these credentials as well. After clicking "Sign in," the user’s credentials are sent to a PHP script on a compromised Web server. Credentials are also submitted over SSL, which is critical for the attack's effectiveness. Without this, victims would see an unnerving security warning.
Security warning:
> http://www.symantec....1/Dropbox 2.jpg
Upon saving or emailing the user's credentials to the scammer, the PHP script simply -redirects- the user to the real Dropbox login page. Although the page itself is served over SSL, and credentials are sent using the protocol, some resources on the page (such as images or style sheets) are not served over SSL. Using non-SSL resources on a page served over SSL shows warnings in recent versions of some browsers. The prominence of the warning varies from browser to browser; some browsers simply change the padlock symbol shown in the address bar, whereas others include a small banner at the top of the page. Users may not notice or understand these security warnings or the associated implications. Symantec reported this phishing page to Dropbox and they immediately took the page down. Any Dropbox-hosted phishing pages can be reported to the abuse@dropbox.com email address..."

ThetaRay turns to maths to detect cyber threats
- http://www.reuters.c...N0IA1JV20141021
Oct 21, 2014 - "As businesses face a growing threat of cyber attacks, Israeli start-up ThetaRay is betting on maths to provide early detection, enabling the shutdown of systems before damage can be done. The year-old company's first investor was venture capital firm Jerusalem Venture Partners. It is now also backed by heavyweights like General Electric, which uses ThetaRay to protect critical infrastructure such as power plants, and Israel's biggest bank, Hapoalim, which deployed the technology to detect bank account anomalies... Cyber security providers are moving away from protecting gateways with defenses such as firewalls to focus on detecting and preventing attacks before they penetrate organizations... Security experts estimate it can take more than -200- days to identify a cyber attack once it's been launched... Once a threat has been detected, ThetaRay leaves it up to humans to decide whether or not to shut down the system..."
