From RAR to JavaScript: Ransomware Figures in the Fluctuations of Email Attachments

Why is it critical to stop ransomware at the gateway layer? Because email is the top entry point used by prevalent ransomware families. Based on our analysis, 71% of known ransomware families arrive via email. While there’s nothing new about the use of spam, ransomware distributors continue to employ this infection vector because it’s a tried-and-tested method. It’s also an effective way to reach potential victims like enterprises and small and medium businesses (SMBs) that normally use emails for communication and daily operations. Over the first half of the year, we observed how cybercriminals leveraged file types like JavaScript, VBScript, and Office files with macros to evade traditional security solutions. Some of these file types can be used to code malware. In fact, as a security precaution, Microsoft turns off macros by default. In this blog post, we examine various email file attachments and how ransomware affected the fluctuation in the use of these file types.

A Show of (Brute) Force: Crysis Ransomware Found Targeting Australian and New Zealand Businesses

Crysis (detected by Trend Micro as RANSOM_CRYSIS.A), a ransomware family first detected in February this year, has been spotted targeting businesses in Australia in New Zealand through remote desktop protocol (RDP) brute force attacks.

Crysis has been reported in early June this year to have set its sights into carving a market share left by TeslaCrypt when the latter’s developers decided to shut down their operations, and rivaling Locky’s prevalence in the ransomware threat landscape.

Untangling the Ripper ATM Malware

Last August , security researchers released a blog discussing a new ATM malware family called Ripper which they believe was involved in the recent ATM attacks in Thailand. Large numbers of ATMs were also temporarily shut down as a precautionary measure.

During our analysis we noticed some additional details that where not called out, or which appear to contradict this earlier analysis. We highlight these differences in this blog post. We have also included technical indicators such as code offsets where possible for other researchers to follow on from our work.

Microsoft Patches IE/Edge Zero-day Used in AdGholas Malvertising Campaign

In July 2016, we worked with @kafeine of Proofpoint to help bring down the AdGholas malvertising campaign. This campaign started operating in 2015, which affected a million users per day during its peak before it was shut down earlier this year. It used the Angler and Neutrino exploit kits to attack victims. It also used steganography to hide malicious code within a picture.

In the process of working on this campaign, we found and analyzed an information disclosure vulnerability in both Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. We worked with Microsoft to address this flaw, named as CVE-2016-3351. Previously considered as a zero-day vulnerability, this issue was fixed in MS16-104 for Internet Explorer and MS16-105 for Edge, which was released though a patch earlier this week.

September Patch Tuesday: Browser, Exchange, Office Bugs Dominate

The second Tuesday of the month is here, which means one thing - new patches from Microsoft. Compared to recent months, September's batch of patches is slightly larger with 14 bulletins in all, evenly split between Critical and Important ones.

CVE-2016-6662 Advisory: Recent MySQL Code Execution/Privilege Escalation Zero-Day Vulnerability

Earlier this week, an independent researcher publicly disclosed a severe vulnerability in MySQL. This is a very popular open-source DBMS which is used by many organizations to manage their backend databases and websites. Proof of concept code was provided as part of the disclosure.

This particular vulnerability was designated as CVE-2016-6662, one of two serious flaws that the researcher found. This vulnerability allows an attacker to create the MySQL configuration file without having the privileges to do so, effectively taking over the server. The other assigned as CVE-2016-6663 has not yet been disclosed.

BkSoD by Ransomware: HDDCryptor Uses Commercial Tools to Encrypt Network Shares and Lock HDDs

While most ransomware we’ve seen only target specific file types or folders stored on local drives, removable media and network shares, we were able to uncover a ransomware family that does not discriminate: HDDCryptor. Detected as Ransom_HDDCRYPTOR.A, HDDCryptor not only targets resources in network shares such as drives, folders, files, printers, and serial ports via Server Message Block (SMB), but also locks the drive. Such a damaging routine makes this particular ransomware a very serious and credible threat not only to home users but also to enterprises.

Distrust Breeds Enmity in the French Underground

We now know that most of the murky dealings that French cybercriminals engage in happen in the dark recesses of the Deep Web, specifically in the Dark Web. Every now and then though, cybercriminals would make their presence felt on the Surface Web. A popular cybercriminal marketplace now gone, French Dark Net, for one, was seen recently promoting its offerings on YouTube. We've seen similarities between the French as well as the Brazilian and North American underground markets in that they use social media as a platform to promote their illegal business. What sets the French underground apart?

A Case of Misplaced Trust: How a Third-Party App Store Abuses Apple’s Developer Enterprise Program to Serve Adware

For bogus applications to be profitable, they should be able to entice users into installing them. Scammers do so by riding on the popularity of existing applications, embedding them with unwanted content—even malicious payloads—and masquerading them as legitimate. These repackaged apps are peddled to unsuspecting users, mostly through third-party app stores.

Haima exactly does that, and more. We discovered this China-based third-party iOS app store aggressively promoting their repackaged apps in social network channels—YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter—banking on the popularity of games and apps such as Minecraft, Terraria, and Instagram to lure users into downloading them.

Picture Perfect: CryLocker Ransomware Uploads User Information as PNG Files

Taking advantage of legitimate sites for command-and-control (C&C) purposes is typically done by most malware to avoid rousing suspicion from their targets. While most ransomware directly sends the gathered information to their designated C&C servers, there are some variants that slightly differ. CuteRansomware, for instance, uses Google Docs to pass information from the infected system to the attackers.

One of the latest ransomware families, CryLocker (detected as RANSOM_MILICRY.A), does the same by taking advantage of Imgur, a free online image hosting site that allows users to upload and share photos to their contacts. During our monitoring of activities related to exploit kits, we spotted both Rig and Sundown distributing this threat.
