Mobile Ransomware: Pocket-Sized Badness

A few weeks ago, I spoke at Black Hat Europe 2016 on Pocket-Sized Badness: Why Ransomware Comes as a Plot Twist in the Cat-Mouse Game. While watching mobile ransomware from April 2015 to April 2016, I noticed a big spike in the number of Android ransomware samples. During that year, the number of Android ransomware increased by 140%. In certain areas, mobile ransomware accounts for up to 22 percent of mobile malware overall! (These numbers were obtained from the Trend Micro Mobile App Reputation Service.) One trend noticed during this time is that it closely mirrors the path paved by traditional ransomware: like other ransomware types, mobile ransomware is constantly evolving and growing.

Avalanche: Thwarting Cybercriminal Hazards with Law Enforcement Collaboration

On November 30th, an international law enforcement operation stamped out Avalanche, a large-scale content and management platform designed for the delivery of bullet-proof botnets. Avalanche’s scale and scope spanned victims from 180 countries, over 800,000 domains in 60+ top-level domains (TLD), more than one million phishing and spam e-mails, 500,000 infected machines worldwide, and 130TB of captured and analyzed data.

The coordinated effort from international law enforcement agencies that include Germany’s Public Prosecutor’s Office Verden and the Lüneburg Police, the U.S.’s Attorney Office for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Europol, and Eurojust as well as partners in ShadowServer, resulted in one of the most successful anti-cybercrime operations in recent years.

New Flavor of Dirty COW Attack Discovered, Patched

Dirty COW (designated as CVE-2016-5195) is a Linux vulnerability that was first disclosed to the public in October 2016. It was a serious privilege escalation flaw that allowed an attacker to gain root access on the targeted system; other methods were needed to run any code on the targeted machine. We have found a new way to target Dirty COW that is different from existing attacks.

One Bit To Rule A System: Analyzing CVE-2016-7255 Exploit In The Wild

Recently, Google researchers discovered a local privilege escalation vulnerability in Windows which was being used in zero-day attacks, including those carried out by the Pawn Storm espionage group. This is an easily exploitable vulnerability which can be found in all supported versions of Windows, from Windows 7 to Windows 10. By changing one bit, the attacker can elevate the privileges of a thread, giving administrator access to a process that would not have it under normal circumstances.

New SmsSecurity Variant Roots Phones, Abuses Accessibility Features and TeamViewer

In January of 2016, we found various "SmsSecurity" mobile apps that claimed to be from various banks. Since then, we've found some new variants of this attack that add new malicious capabilities. These capabilities include: anti-analysis measures, automatic rooting, language detection, and remote access via TeamViewer. In addition, SmsSecurity now cleverly uses the accessibility features of Android to help carry out its routines in a stealthy manner, without interaction from the user.

HDDCryptor: Subtle Updates, Still a Credible Threat

Since first writing about the discovery of HDDCryptor back in September, we have been tracking this ransomware closely as it has evolved. Last week, a new version was spotted in the wild, and based on our analysis, we believe that this variant is the one used in a recent attack against San Francisco Municipal Transport Agency (SFMTA).

CEO Fraud Email Scams Target Healthcare Institutions

A series of Business Email Compromise (BEC) campaigns that used CEO fraud schemes was seen targeting 17 healthcare institutions in the US, ten in the UK, and eight in Canada over the past two weeks. These institutions range from general hospitals and teaching hospitals to specialty care and walk-in clinics. Even pharmaceutical companies were not safe from the BEC scams, as one UK-based company and two Canadian pharma companies were also targeted.

Selling Online Gaming Currency: How It Makes Way for Attacks Against Enterprises

Offhand, companies and enterprises being affected by attacks like DDoS against the online gaming industry may be far-fetched. But the gaming industry, being a billion-dollar business with a continuously growing competitive community, is naturally bound to garner attention from cybercriminals. A recent wire fraud case, for instance, allowed a group of hackers to mine $16 million worth of coins in the hugely popular FIFA series and sell them to buyers in Europe and China. And in our research, we found that the sale of such gaming currencies sends ripples of impact to fund cybercrime operations often targeting entities however unrelated to online gaming.

Businesses as Ransomware’s Goldmine: How Cerber Encrypts Database Files

Possibly to maximize the earning potential of Cerber’s developers and their affiliates, the ransomware incorporated a routine with heavier impact to businesses: encrypting database files. These repositories of organized data enable businesses to store, retrieve, sort, analyze, and manage pertinent information. When utilized effectively they help maintain the organization’s efficiency, so holding these mission-critical files hostage can adversely affect the business’s operations and bottom line.

A known ransomware peddled as a turnkey service to budding cybercriminals, Cerber has metamorphosed into a myriad of versions throughout its lifecycle. It picked up more tricks along the way, some of which include integrating a DDoS component, using double-zipped Windows Script Files, and leveraging a cloud productivity platform, even serving as secondary payload for an information-stealing Trojan.

Pawn Storm Ramps Up Spear-phishing Before Zero-Days Get Patched

The effectiveness of a zero-day quickly deteriorates as an attack tool after it gets discovered and patched by the affected software vendors. Within the time between the discovery of the vulnerability and the release of the fix, a bad actor might try to get the most out of his previously valuable attack assets. This is exactly what we saw in late October and early November 2016, when the espionage group Pawn Storm (also known as Fancy Bear, APT28, Sofacy, and STRONTIUM) ramped up its spear-phishing campaigns against various governments and embassies around the world.  In these campaigns, Pawn Storm used a previously unknown zero-day in Adobe’s Flash (CVE-2016-7855, fixed on October 26, 2016 with an emergency update) in combination with a privilege escalation in Microsoft’s Windows Operating System (CVE-2016-7255) that was fixed on November 8, 2016.
