Ransomware and Business Email Compromise (BEC) Lead Year of Online Extortion

Emails have become the battleground for the first half of the year in terms of security. It is the number one infection vector that have ushered in 2016’s biggest threats so far—ransomware and business email compromise (BEC). Ransomware infections normally start via email. Based on our findings, 71% of the known ransomware families’ delivery method is through spam.

Looking at the threat trends so far, both ransomware and BEC have proved profitable across the world. This echoes our prediction that 2016 would be the Year of Online Extortion. Ransomware continues to threaten business-critical data and cost organization thousands of dollars in losses; BEC scams bank on social engineering lures that lead even companies’ top decision-makers to transfer huge sums of money—totaling to over US$3 billion in estimated losses.

When Hackers Hack Each Other—A Staged Affair in the French Underground?

Recently, Trend Micro published a blog post on a new illegal gambling system known as “French Dark Bets (FDB).” FDB is run and hosted by one of the biggest French underground marketplace, the French Dark Net (FDN). This betting system runs entirely on Bitcoins (BTC), which make it easy for cybercriminals to inject and collect money through this platform.

Over the last few weeks, a series of events caught our attention: The FDN and FDB went offline and came back online within a few days, announcing that they were hacked and money was stolen. Following this incident, FDN went back online with changed features.

BANKER Trojan Sports New Technique to Take Advantage of 2016 Olympics

Despite the 2016 Olympics coming to a close, cybercriminals remain relentless in using the sporting event as a social engineering hook to distribute a banking Trojan. Earlier this month, we spotted a phishing campaign that led victims to unknowingly download the Banker malware. Although Banker has been in the wild for years, this time we see it using a Dynamic Loading Library (DLL) with malicious exported functions. One of the export calls used is to check if the victimized system is located in Brazil.  If the geolocation points to Brazil, then another malicious file is downloaded.  This particular new routine points to the possibility of the cybercriminals’ intention of riding on the popularity of the Olympics to lure users. Apart from Banker, there are reports indicating that other banking Trojans, are doing the same thing. For instance, Sphinx ZeuS has enhanced its capabilities because of the Olympics.

New Locky Ransomware Spotted in the Brazilian Underground Market, Uses Windows Script Files

Like a game of cat and mouse, the perpetrators behind the Locky ransomware had updated their arsenal yet again with a new tactic—using Windows Scripting File (WSF) for the arrival method. WSF is a file that allows the combination of multiple scripting languages within a single file. Using WSF makes the detection and analysis of ransomware challenging since WSF files are not among the list of typical files that traditional endpoint solutions monitor for malicious activity.

However, the use of WSF files is no longer a novel idea since the same tactic was used in Cerber’s email campaign in May 2016. It would seem that the attackers behind Locky followed Cerber in using WSF files after seeing how such a tactic was successful in bypassing security measures like sandbox and blacklisting technologies.

R980 Ransomware Found Abusing Disposable Email Address Service

Perhaps emboldened by the success of their peers, attackers have been releasing more ransomware families and variants with alarming frequency. The latest one added to the list is R980 (detected by Trend Micro as RANSOM_CRYPBEE.A).

R980 has been found to arrive via spam emails, or through compromised websites. Like Locky, Cerber and MIRCOP, spam emails carrying this ransomware contain documents embedded with a malicious macro (detected as W2KM_CRYPBEE.A) that is programmed to download R980 through a particular URL. From the time R980 was detected, there have been active connections to that URL since July 26th of this year.

Can Internet of Things be the New Frontier for Cyber Extortion?

The Internet of Things (IoT)—the network of devices embedded with capabilities to collect and exchange information—has long been attracting the attention of cybercriminals as it continues to gain momentum in terms of its adoption. Gartner has estimated that more than 20.8 billion IoT devices will be in use by 2020; IoT will be leveraged by over half of major business processes and systems, with enterprises projected to lead in driving IoT revenue.

How can cybercriminals potentially take advantage of this? Despite being equipped with new applications and hardware, most IoT devices are furnished with outdated connection protocols and operating systems (OS).

BlackHat2016: badWPAD – The Doubtful Legacy of the WPAD Protocol

WPAD is a protocol that allows computers to automatically discover Web proxy configurations and is primarily used in networks where clients are only allowed to communicate to the outside world through a proxy - which is the case in most enterprises. To easily configure proxy settings for different types of applications which require an internet connection, WPAD, also known as “autoproxy”, was first implemented and promoted by Netscape® 2.0 in 19961 for Netscape Navigator® 2.0. The tool can apply to any system that supports proxy auto-discovery, like most browsers, operating systems and some applications not working from operating systems.

Warnings of security issues have been around for many years. These risks have been recognized in the security community for years, but for some reason been left largely ignored. In fact it is relatively easy to exploit WPAD. In basic terms, the security issue with the WPAD protocol revolves around the idea that whenever the protocol makes a request to a proxy, anyone else can create a service that answers that request and can practically impersonate the real web proxy (Man-in-the-Middle attack).

Two-Factor Authentication and SMS Messages: Don’t Let The Perfect Be The Enemy Of The Good

Last week, a lot of tech media sites were breathlessly reporting how the National Institute of Science and Technology in the United States was saying that two-factor authentication (2FA) via SMS messages would be "deprecated" in future standards. Some took this to mean that this technique was insecure, and that users should shy away from this method. Let's step back and see what the NIST really said:

INTERPOL Arrests Business Email Compromise Scam Mastermind

Business Email Compromise (BEC) attacks have proven to be an effective tactic, with criminals stealing large amounts of money from various businesses. From 2013 to 2015, BEC-related damages were estimated at US$ 2.3 billion. Targeting C-level executives has proven to be a very successful tactic, with multiple companies falling victim to this kind of scam.

The operators behind these scams operate from countries where they believe they are safe from law enforcement. Bringing down these syndicates is no easy task: law enforcement agencies and researchers need to work across borders, with differing laws coming into play.
