Facebook announced this morning that it was making several security changes to protect users' accounts, including boosting the availability of accessing the site using a secure connection.

The announcement comes less than a day after CEO Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook profile was hacked, and while the announcement isn't necessarily a result of this, it's a good reminder of the importance of always using a secure connection to access your accounts online - Facebook and otherwise.

There's an interesting Windows+mobile case today involving a ZeuS variant that steals mTANs, using a Symbian (.sis) or Blackberry (.jad) component.

Earlier today, while doing our daily data mining, we came across a new variant of ZeuS 2.x. It includes a new backdoor command called: win_unlock. Very interesting, turns out this slightly modified ZeuS 2.x includes a ransomware feature.

When this particular variant is executed, it opens Internet Explorer with a specific page (lex.creativesandboxs.com/locker/lock.php) and prevents the user from doing anything else with the infected system. The webpage that was opened presumably showed some type of extortion message, but it's currently unavailable because the site is offline. The most straightforward way to unlock the system is to simply delete the trojan. This can be a bit tricky since the trojan prevents doing anything with the infected system, luckily the locking itself can be easily disabled first.

Breaking news from Poland today: A variant of the ZeuS trojan is targeting the mobile phone based, two-factor authentication used by ING Bank Slaski.

From the details that we've gathered so far, this appears to be the same type of ZeuS Man-in-the-mobile attack that took place in Spain last year. Spanish security company, S21sec first reported on ZeuS Mitmo here.

Some botnets are so big you can see them from space (or at least, Google Earth). Here's what the ZeroAccess botnet looks like in Europe.

We normally see malware developing and evolving over the years. One particular malware we've been following is ZeroAccess, which has been continuously improving [since] we first detected it in late 2010.

Case in point: in the latest samples, its self-deletion routine has changed. This is a simple Windows batch file ZeroAccess used to use to remove itself after execution, as a fast and simple way to hide any traces of its presence from the user (click for larger view)...

The Exec summary: An image resizing utility called timthumb.php is widely used by many WordPress themes. Google shows over 39 million results for the script name.

If your WordPress theme is bundled with an unmodified timthumb.php as many commercial and free themes are, then you should immediately either remove it or edit it and set the $allowedSites array to be empty. The utility only does a partial match on hostnames allowing hackers to upload and execute arbitrary PHP code in your timthumb cache directory.
