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.

Variants of the SpyEye trojan target banks using a plugin called webinject.txt. We collected 1,318 samples in our back end that matched those from SpyEye Tracker's RSS Feed.

Taking a look inside, we discovered that this collection of samples contains 632 different bank domains and that commerzbank.com was the most targeted bank domain. Here's a graph of the top 40 banks targeted by SpyEye...

Brod, a researcher on our Threat Research team has been tasked with tracking emerging Mac based threats.

Microsoft Excel is one of the tools he uses to chart variants. From April to December 2011, there have been several dozen new Mac threats. Well, that's nothing when compared to Windows malware - but it's definitely something when compared to the number of Mac threats seen prior to 2011. Keep in mind that by "new", we're referring to unique variants, and not the raw number of unique binaries that we've seen. We prefer a more conservative approach when counting malware. The more generic and family based, the better.

There's a run of ZeuS (aka Zbot) trojans currently targeting several Finnish banks.

This version of ZeuS 2.x (Zbot.AVRC) has two new commands it will accept: user_activate_imodule and user_restart_imodule.

Here's the technical analysis related to yesterday's post on Trojan:SymbOS/OpFake.A.

OpFake.A arrives as a supposed Opera Mini updater using file names such as OperaUpdater.sisx and Update6.1.sisx. The malware installer adds an Opera icon to the application menu. When run, it will show a menu and a fake download progress bar.

An SMS-sending Trojan, which targets mobile devices with Java midlet installed, has been circulating in Malaysia.

Some victims reported that they have been receiving an SMS message which appears to be an update from Samsung. But upon clicking the link, they are redirected to another link (http://mmgbu[...].com:90/[...].jar) that leads to a JAR file. This JAR file carries out the details for the malware to send SMS messages to multiple short numbers.

Since the public release of Microsoft's MS12-020 bulletin, there have been plenty of attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).

Last week, we received a related sample, which turned out to be a tool called "RDPKill by: Mark DePalma" that was designed to kill targeted RDP service. The tool was written with Visual Basic 6.0, and has a simple user interface. We tested it on machines running on Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit.

We've been seeing cases of malware that first debuted on other operating systems being ported over to Android. Here's another trojan that fits the bill.

Opfake was first found on Symbian and Windows Mobile. In its latest incarnation on Android, the trojan (still) appears to be an Opera Mini app...whose only permission request is to send SMS messages...

Amidst my usual adventure with Android malware analysis, I saw this snippet of code while skimming through a particular sample's class modules.

Late last year, I was looking deeper into Portable Network Graphics (PNG) image format, especially about the fields that hold textual information. Upon seeing the code, it immediately triggered my suspicion as to why would the application need to check for the existence of the "tEXt" chunk of a PNG file...
