  2. New research carried out by analysts from Intelligent Content Protection concludes that 90 percent of the top pirate sites link to malware or other unwanted software. In addition, two-thirds of the websites are said to link to credit card scams. Entertainment industry groups hope the findings will motivate people to choose legal options instead. Most seasoned visitors of torrent sites and streaming portals know that many of the “download” and “play” buttons present are non-functional, at least in the regular sense. In fact, many of these buttons link to advertisements of some sort, ranging
  3. Plenty has been written about the Sefnit malware family and its favor with using Tor to mask communication, as well as the money it’s made for criminals via click-fraud schemes. Sefnit, however, has had a pair of accomplices that until recently were regarded as harmless programs by most security companies. The trio, which now includes two malware families Rotbrow and Brantall, are responsible for a startling jump in malware infections detected in the fourth quarter of last year, according to Microsoft. In its latest Security Intelligence Report (SIR), Microsoft puts the blame on Sefnit et al
  4. A new remote administration Trojan (RAT) receives command and control instructions through Yahoo Mail, and could be easily modified to communicate with its authors through Gmail or other popular webmail providers. This new RAT’s significance stems primarily from its ability to elude the notice of intrusion detection systems by operating over seemingly benign domains. According to an analysis written Paul Rascagnères of the German security firm G-Data and published by Virus Bulletin, RATs generally transmit the information they steal from victimized machines over a specified port, or by regular
  5. A new form of persistent malware has been discovered, one which does not create any file on the disk and stores all activities in the registry. In a blog posted at the end of July, security researcher Paul Rascagneres of GData details the particularities of the new type of malware, dubbed Poweliks, whose methods he labels as “rather rare and new,” since everything is performed in the memory of the computer system and there are several layers of code to get through in order to avoid analysis. The attack vector is an email with a malcrafted Microsoft Word document attached. The vulnerability le
  6. Researchers have discovered click fraud malware designed to “hide in plain sight” and evade traditional security tools by embedding data into an image file. Lurk is a downloader which uses digital steganography – the art of hiding information in images, audio or video files, according to a Dell SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit (CTU) Threat Intelligence paper by Brett Stone-Gross. “Lurk specifically uses an algorithm that can embed encrypted URLs into an image file by inconspicuously manipulating individual pixels. The resulting image contains additional data that is virtually invisible to an ob
  7. Cybercriminals and advanced attackers are freely borrowing from one another’s repertoires to great success. The latest example involves spammers firing off up to a half-million email messages during limited campaign segments without triggering any detection alarms. Security company FireEye said the attackers have found a winning formula to evade detection in one used by a number of APT campaigns in which attack attributes are changed at a higher rate than IDS and other defenses can keep up. The campaigns, carried out by the Asprox botnet, were first spotted late last year and by the end of May
  8. Security researchers have uncovered a new Stuxnet like malware, named as “Havex”, which was used in a number of previous cyber attacks against organizations in the energy sector. Just like Famous Stuxnet Worm, which was specially designed to sabotage the Iranian nuclear project, the new trojan Havex is also programmed to infect industrial control system softwares of SCADA and ICS systems, with the capability to possibly disable hydroelectric dams, overload nuclear power plants, and even can shut down a country’s power grid with a single keystroke. According to security firm F-Secure who first
  9. A new and relatively rare Zeus Trojan program has been found which is totally different from other banking Trojans and has capability to secretly steal data from forms, login credentials and files from the victim as well as can create fake web pages and take screenshots of victim's computer. Researchers at RSA Security’s FraudAction team have discovered this new and critical threat, dubbed as ‘Pandemiya’, which is being offered to the cyber criminals in underground forums as an alternative to the infamous Zeus Trojan and its many variants, that is widely used by most of the cyber-criminals for

  12. A new spam campaign has emerged in support of the Asprox botnet. The scheme involves shipping receipt emails that contain malicious links and purport to come from the United States Postal Service (USPS). Anyone who receives one of these emails and clicks on the link therein will have a zip file downloaded onto their machine, according to a Zscaler report. After a user downloads the zip file, it shows up as a seemingly legitimate looking Word document on the Windows desktop. That file is in actuality an executable which must be opened before the user becomes infected with the malware. Researche
  13. More and more pieces of malware have become capable of targeting users running 64-bit versions of operating systems. One of them is KIVARS, a piece of malware whose 64-bit version was recently analyzed by researchers from Trend Micro. According to the security firm, the Trojan is distributed with the aid of TROJ_FAKEWORD.A, a dropper that's designed to drop two executable files and a Microsoft Word document on infected systems. In the 32-bit version, the executable files are copied into the "windows system" folder with the names iprips.dll, which is detected by Trend Micro as TROJ_KIVARSLDR, a
  14. Hackers are targeting Brazil’s Boleto payment system, the second most popular payment method in the country, and have conducted hundreds of thousands of fraudulent transactions valued at close to $4 billion. Formally known as Boleto Bancario, Boletos are financial documents issued by banks that can be used by consumers to make payments to utilities and other outlets. Boletos are either printed and mailed to customers, or are generated and sent via electronic transfers. Common to all are a bar code, identification field or numerical representation of the bar code, and an identification number.
  15. Cyber security sleuths have alerted Indian Internet users against hacking attempts of a clandestine multi-identity virus - Bladabindi - which steals sensitive personal information of a user for nefarious purposes.

  18. Like most profitable criminal enterprises, the Shylock banking malware thrived because it was supported by a nimble infrastructure that allowed it to stay one step ahead of network and security monitoring capabilities, and the authorities. That race ended this week. Europol announced today that it, along with numerous law enforcement and industry partners had carried out a successful takedown of the Shylock infrastructure. The two-day culmination of the operation took place on Tuesday and Wednesday and was coordinated by the U.K.’s National Crime Agency and supported by Europol, the FBI, GCHQ
  19. Cybercriminals always look for the weakest link they can leverage to make as many victims as possible, and it looks like web browsers with out-of-date plugins are the norm in Europe. Browser plugin update situation in Europe According to the latest statistics from the Germany-based Cyscon GmbH, a company specializing in detecting an mitigating cyber threats, the users of most countries in Europe rely on poorly updated web browsers to explore the online world, which translates into plenty of possible victims for the crooks. The company makes available an interactive map that shows, in percenta
  20. By Ron Amadeo - Jan 18 2014, 10:10am AUSEST Once in control, they can silently push new ad-filled "updates" to those users. One of the coolest things about Chrome is the silent, automatic updates that always ensure that users are always running the latest version. While Chrome itself is updated automatically by Google, that update process also includes Chrome's extensions, which are updated by the extension owners. This means that it's up to the user to decide if the owner of an extension is trustworthy or not, since you are basically giving them permission to push new code out to your browse
  21. Los Angeles, California - January 17, 2014 The massive data breach at Target during the 2013 holiday shopping season which the retailer now admits affected 70 million customers used an inexpensive "off the shelf" malware known as BlackPOS. The same malware may have also been involved in the Neiman Marcus attack. Security researchers from IntelCrawler, a Los-Angeles based cyber intelligence company, announced that the age of BlackPOS malware author is close to 17 years old and the first sample of it was created in March 2013. The first report on this malware was done in the beginning of sprin
  22. By Casey Johnston - Jan 28 2014, 7:00am AUSEST Updates turned some Chrome add-ons maliciousnot all browsers allow that. Customers complain about activity tracking in CRXMouse on Chrome, a particularly invasive add-on. In a recent revelation by OMG Chrome and the developer of the Chrome extension Add to Feedly, it came to light that Chrome extensions are capable of changing service or ownership under a users nose without much notification. In the case of Add to Feedly, a buyout meant thousands of users were suddenly subjected to injected adware and redirected links. Chromes regulations fo

  24. By Ben Zigterman on Jan 24, 2014 at 6:15 PM Phil Schiller recently tweeted a link to a report that said 99% of all mobile malware is directed at Android. Usually the malware comes through the web in the form of phishing or other tactics but it usually doesnt come from PCs. However, thats not the case with a particular piece of malware uncovered by Symantec that installs malware onto Android devices when they are connected to Windows PCs. The malware, called Trojan.Droidpak, installs a fake version of the Google Play store when the Android device is connected to PCs in USB debugging mode. Th
  25. Google has removed two Chrome extensions from its store due to the way they were serving ads to users. The extensions in question, Add to Feedly and Tweet This Page, both started life as useful additions to Google's web browser, but were soon serving users pop-ups and other intrusive ads. The reason for the sudden change in behavior? In Add to Feedly's case, at least, it was purchased from its developer and quickly began serving ads to its 30,000 users. In a blog post, Add to Feedly developer Amit Agarwal describes how he got an email presenting "a four-figure offer for something that had ta
