We have just encountered a number of Android riskware applications that target subscribers in the China region.

The suspect applications cover a variety of topics, including horoscopes, farm and pet games/info and the Chinese calendar, to name a few. Below is a screenshot of the permissions requested by one of these applications...

We come across a fake FlashPlayer.pkg installer for Mac.

Once installed, the trojan add entries to the hosts file to hijack users visiting various Google sites (e.g.,,, etc) to the IP address, which is located in Netherlands. The server at the IP address displays a fake webpage designed to appear similar to the legitimate Google site.

Android malware seems to be all the rage at the moment.

Here's a few comments on a couple interesting side issues we've been discussing as we've seen them crop up during analyses. First up: there was a recent report on suspicious applications found the official Android Market. The apps in question have since been taken off the Market, but our threat hunting team still come across them in forums and other such locations, usually promoted as 'free apps'.

We recently did an analysis on a trojan, AdSMS, that's been spreading for the last week or so and thought it might make an interesting contrast to the rash of trojanized Android apps that we've been seeing lately.

AdSMS is distributed via a malicious link in a spammed SMS message. The malware appears to be targeted to Android users in mainland China, as the SMS is faked up to look like it's from a major Chinese telecom network and the download link deliberately spoofs a domain name associated with the network. AdSMS is promoted as an 'update for a security vulnerability'...

Virus:W32/Ramnit is no stranger to many malware analysts/researchers, as it was in the wild back in 2010.

One of the interesting techniques is the injection method that Ramnit uses. This differs from the traditional method, in which a virus would create a suspended thread and inject code using a memory writing Windows API function, then resume the suspended thread after the injection is done.

I've been experimenting with the Chromium OS over the weekend. If you're not familiar, Chromium is the open source development version of Google's Chrome operating system, which ships on these new-fangled Chromebooks.

After several abortive attempts, I finally got Chromium Lime running on my Dell Mini 1018, and just about everything works fine. It's super fast, and for the first time I can use the pansy little netbook without feeling constrained by its low-power hardware. The most noteworthy point is that I barely even notice I'm running a different operating system. I use the Chrome browser on my primary Windows machine, and 99% of my computing time is spent on the web anyway - for both work and leisure.

The U.S. government may not print Bitcoin, or regulate it, but apparently the feds can still seize it.

Earlier this week, the federal Drug Enforcement Agency reported that it had seized 11.02 bitcoins-roughly $814-from a South Carolina man attempting to buy illegal substances with the world's leading digital currency. It's the first known seizure of Bitcoin by the U.S. government, signaling just how seriously the feds take Bitcoin and the online black markets it fuels. A report from the DEA notes that the money was netted in April. Little detail is provided about the seizure, which appears on the third-to-the-last page of a 128-page document. Its not even clear what substance the suspect was trying to buy. But for Bitcoin experts, the particulars of this case are less important than the apparent fact that the U.S. government is performing sting operations on Bitcoin sites.

A few months ago, the Federal Communications Commission fined Google $25,000 for taking its sweet time to give information to the FCC about an interesting project Google had been working on.

Most of you are probably familiar with Google Maps, where you can search for directions to wherever you need to go and even get a street view of the area. Google literally paid for trucks to go around with cameras on them in order to record this information. Not a big deal, right? Well it wouldn't be a big deal if those trucks didn't include technology on them that could swipe all of your personal information off unsecured Wi-Fi connections. Just in case you don't know what that means, if you have Wi-Fi in your house and it didn't have a password on it to protect it, odds are that Google has all of your personal information.

At Friday's news conference, President Obama was asked by Chuck Todd whether the debate that has arisen in the wake of Edward Snowden's revelations made Snowden a patriot. Obama disagreed.

"I don't think Mr. Snowden was a patriot," the president said. "I called for a thorough review of our operations before Mr. Snowden made these leaks. My preference, and I think the American peoples' preferences would have been for a lawful, orderly examination of these laws." Yet the Obama administration showed little interest in subjecting the NSA to meaningful oversight and public debate prior to Snowden's actions. When Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked for a "ballpark figure" of the number of Americans whose information was being collected by the NSA last year, the agency refused to give the senator any information, arguing that doing so would violate the privacy of those whose information was collected.
