BREAKING!! New SMS phishing campaign pretending to be from the United States Post Office being pushed out to cell phones today. So far the link in the SMS being used is this domain m9sxv[.]info. Here are a couple of sample texts we have collected. #infosec #malware #smish #osint
The m9sxv[.]info domain was just registered today and here are few sample links we have collected so far. @kyleehmke @RiskIQ @ydklijnsma #infosec #malware #smish #osint
There is a fair amount of victim fingerprinting going on based on the device ect... Here m9sxv[.]info immediately redirects to a jtuzd.rdtk[.]io link. #infosec #malware #smish #osint #phishing

One tactic that needs to be used more often in #malware development is distributed multi-binary components.

Separate each of your components into unique binaries and communicate to them via IPC or something similar.

Each binary is given a single purposes: File IO, Registry etc
There are several advantages to this:

Sandboxes will score each component separately and are more likely to not block a binary that just accesses the File System or registry because essentially it is harmless

Also components can use LOLBins if they are available as substitutes
Also you can recompiled the multi-components individually much easier than recompiling a whole project.

Also dont forget to write garbage to your padding sections / end of binary to easily change your file hashes.

WARNING 🔥 CVE-2020-1350 (CVSS 10)

A critical 17-year-old 'wormable' RCE #vulnerability affects Windows DNS Servers (2013 to 2019 editions) that could let unauthenticated hackers gain 'Domain Admin' privileges on the targeted servers.

Details —…

Researchers confirm the new #Windows vulnerability, dubbed 'SigRed,' is a wormable bug, allowing attackers to launch #malware attacks that can spread from one vulnerable computer to another without any human interaction.

#cybersecurity #sysadmins #microsoft #informationsecurity
If exploited, #SigRed Windows Server #vulnerability enables hackers to intercept and manipulate users' emails and network traffic, make services unavailable, harvest users' credentials, and eventually compromise an organization's entire IT infrastructure.…

Todays #VBALostArts Topic: #Sandbox Detection

So a few hours ago I whipped up a super basic Office #malware whose goal was to extract as much info from sandboxes as possible and send it in the clear so you can gather all the configurations of the sandbox.

I named it Thumper
Thumper does 4 things:
- Built In Office/VBA Info Gathering
- Registry Reading (USER & LM)
- RecentFiles Methods
- Shoots results via HTTP (so you can see)

It does this (by design) with the elegance of a herd of drunken water buffaloes dancing to Russian hard bass in a tea shop.
As the reference to the name, it's meant to call the sandworms hidding in the dunes.

And if you want to detect and avoid almost all of the sandboxes - easiest way is to check the DateTime stamps of RecentFile methods of Word.

INFOGRAPHIC🔎Timeline of @FBI’s #FISAAbuse in Trump Campaign Investigation

#EpochTimes provides a comprehensive timeline of details from the #IGReport, describing how the #FBI rushed to #Spy on the Trump campaign and the flaws in its case.

See more:…
In its pursuit of establishing #Surveillance on the Trump campaign, the #FBI turned its attention to @CarterWPage in the spring of 2016, culminating in the issuance of a #FISA warrant—which allows for some of the most intrusive #Spying methods on an US citizen.
As part of this process, the #FBI relied extensively on the flawed #SteeleDossier, leading an @FBI legal counsel to note that this was “essentially a single source FISA.”

#ESETresearch stumbled upon strange samples which use the packer we described in publications on the #Winnti Group. The payload in these samples is an implant attributed to Equation. It is known as PeddleCheap according to the project names seen in the Shadow Brokers leaks. 1/8
Those samples were first seen in 2017, one year before it was used in the compromised games in 2018 (…). They are 8b8d2eb8de66890f4c0950ccb3fff95b0f42b9e1 and b48beb5e49976294287b1d6910d7445db83e5cf2. #ESETresearch @marc_etienne_ 2/8

Solo nel corso di quest'ultima settimana ho dovuto ripulire 3 PC di amici e parenti infettati da #malware di vario tipo: in tutti e tre i casi l'infezione ha avuto origine da una e-mail di #phishing con un file .ZIP allegato, che a sua volta conteneva un trojan.

Questo che si sta per chiudere è stato un anno dove il #phishing ha mietuto molte vittime illustri in Italia e in UE, chiaro segnale che sia gli enti pubblici che le aziende private non hanno ancora messo a punto strategie difensive adeguate. /2…
In cosa consistono queste strategie? Volendo riassumere, in un connubio virtuoso tra difese perimetrali (Firewall, IDS, validazione e-mail tramite SPF, etc.), procedure aziendali adeguate e soprattutto corsi di formazione per i dipendenti volti allo sviluppo di best practices. /3

Around 2000 @GovernmentGeo websites got #hacked earlier this month, but the reports suggested it was a website defacement attack. That may not be the only case, the hacker may have attempted an image-based #malware attack. Follow the thread
On Oct 28, a @GovernmentGeo website infrastructure gets hacked. The attack was the country's largest cyber-attack (likely) and targeting multiple sectors, from the website of the president, courts, civil society organizations, and others.
Motive? Not clear yet. But all the websites had Saakashvili’s image with a caption - “I’LL BE BACK” superimposed over a Georgian flag. This made the attack seem a website defacement attack.

In Republican Devin Nunes opening statement, he chose to peddle the insane conspiracy theory that Ukraine helped Hillary lose the election to later then have the ability to smear Trump after he won and pin it on Russia (Say What??) #ImpeachmentHearings #ImpeachmentDay
Rep. Devin Nunes also attacked @AlexandraChalup and (as Democratic stooges) witnesses Amb. Bill Taylor and State Dept's George Kent highly respected professionals who have served numerous presidents of BOTH parties with distinction. #ImpeachmentHearings #ImpeachmentDay
I will remind everyone that while Devin Nunes was the Chairman of the Intelligence Committee of the United States in 2017 we & others alerted him 2 the fact that one of his past campaign websites was breached and infected with Russian SEO spam #ImpeachmentHearings #ImpeachmentDay

Impeachment Inquiry Is Legal, Judge Rules, Giving DEMs a Victory

Judge orders the DOJ to hand over secret GJ evidence from the Mueller inv’n to the HJC by 10/30.

The committee's need for disclosure of the materials "is greater than the need for continued secrecy.”


The silence is stunning.

No senator is saying:

📌Openly that Trump’s conduct is not impeachable.

📌The witnesses lack credibility.

📌It is perfectly appropriate for the president to use his powers to aid his campaign effort

Cummings remembered as 'fierce champion' & as a “fierce champion of truth, justice & kindness”

“Like the prophet, our Elijah could call down fire from heaven.

But he also prayed & worked for healing.

He weathered storms & earthquakes but never lost his faith.”

Let's go step-by-step and do some basic live process forensics for #Linux. Today's contestant is a bindshell backdoor waiting for a connection on Ubuntu. We saw something odd when we ran:

netstat -nalp

#DFIR #threathunting #forensics
netstat -nalp shows a process named "x7" PID with a listening port that we don't recognize. #DFIR Image
First thing we'll do is list out /proc/<PID> to see what is going on. Our PID is 5805:

ls -al /proc/5805

The current working directory is /tmp. The binary was in /tmp, but was deleted. A lot of exploits work out of /tmp and /dev/shm on Linux. This is a major red flag. #DFIR Image

Falso messaggio PEC che simula la trasmissione di una fattura elettronica proveniente da un reale indirizzo certificato @Arubait con allegato malevolo. Massima attenzione!
#malware #PEC #fatturaelettronica

Dettagli ⤵️ 1/
- Il mittente è un reale indirizzo il messaggio arriva senza anomalie e la firma risulta valida;
- l’oggetto e il testo riprendono (quasi) esattamente quelli delle PEC del SDI;
- in allegato viene trasmesso un file .zip contenente un .pdf e un .vbs;
- è presente la dicitura “mail priva di virus -” con tanto di logo caricato come contenuto remoto dal sito Avast legittimo.
Il messaggio PEC è molto simile a quello con cui vengono effettivamente trasmesse le fatture, salvo alcuni dettagli (v. foto).
