Important OpenSSL Patch – 6 More Vulnerabilities

So after the Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL that turned the World upside down, there has a been a lot of focus on the codebase and the manner in which it was written. They’ve raised a bunch of money, an audit is underway and there has even been a fairly serious branch named LibreSSL (who are currently whining about not being told about this set of vulns).

OpenSSL Vulnerability

So yah if you have any Linux servers terminating SSL connections with OpenSSL (or LibreSSL) you really need to patch them now and reload any services using the library (or safer just to reboot if you’re not sure).

The good part this time is none of these are particularly easy to exploit, unlike Heartbleed – which could pretty much be abused by anyone.

The OpenSSL team today pushed out fixes for six security vulnerabilities in the widely used crypto library.

These holes include a flaw that enables man-in-the-middle (MITM) eavesdropping on encrypted connections, and another that allows miscreants to drop malware on at-risk systems.

A DTLS invalid fragment bug (CVE-2014-0195, affects versions 0.9.8, 1.0.0 and 1.0.1) can be used to inject malicious code into vulnerable software on apps or servers. DTLS is more or less TLS encryption over UDP rather than TCP, and is used to secure live streams of video, voice chat and so on.

However, an SSL/TLS MITM vulnerability (CVE-2014-0224, potentially affects all clients, and servers running 1.0.1 and 1.0.2-beta1) is arguably worse.

Users and administrators are advised to check their systems for updates; patched builds of OpenSSL are available from the major Linux distros, for instance.

The CVE-2014-0224 MITM bug has existed since the very first release of OpenSSL, according to Masashi Kikuchi, the Japanese security researcher who unearthed the flaw.

Let’s hope they don’t do a TrueCrypt and die after the audit because the code is so bad, they don’t have the resources to fix it. Some people are saying the money being raised should go straight to LibreSSL..but well, the World isn’t a huge fan of Theo and his OpenBSD ways – so that seems unlikely.

I’m sure there’s going to be a whole lot more flaws exposed in the months to come, this is just the beginnings. Let’s just hope that none are leaked (and critical) before the fixes and patches are made public.

The DTLS flaw has also given security experts the fear. “The OpenSSL DTLS vulnerability dates from April, but was reported today. It may allow remote-code execution (OpenSSL DTLS is still a nightmare),” noted computer-science professor Matthew Green in a Twitter update.

“This OpenSSL vuln is an example of the kind of subtle protocol bug that LibreSSL’s (admirable) fork is not likely to fix.”

The OpenSSL.org advisory comes just weeks after the discovery of the infamous Heartbleed vulnerability. Prof Green reckons none of the bugs would be easy to exploit – the direct opposite of the password-leaking Heartbleed hole. The other four fixes in today’s batch deal with denial-of-service-style vulnerabilities.

Nicholas J. Percoco, veep of strategic services at vulnerability management firm Rapid7, said a wide variety of servers and other internet-connected systems will need to be updated to guard against attackers exploiting these now-fixed bugs.

“The newly disclosed man-in-the-middle vulnerability disclosed in OpenSSL affects all client applications and devices that run OpenSSL when communicating to vulnerable servers of specific versions, but includes the most recent,” Percoco explained.

“This likely contains the majority of systems on the internet given most rushed to upgrade OpenSSL after the Heartbleed disclosure in early April of this year. A man-in-the-middle attack is dangerous because it can allow an attacker to intercept data that was presumed encrypted between a client – for example, an end user – and a server – eg, an online bank.

I’m honestly surprised (and a little sad) that’s it has taken this long for there to a big chunk of pressure on OpenSSL to clean up their code and be secure as it’s driving a large part of the Internet.

If you haven’t already done it – go and apply the OpenSSL Patch now.

OWASP NINJA-PingU – High Performance Large Scale Network Scanner

NINJA-PingU (NINJA-PingU Is Not Just A Ping Utility) is a free open-source high performance network scanner tool for large scale analysis. It has been designed with performance as its primary goal and developed as a framework to allow easy plugin integration.

OWASP NINJA-PingU Architecture

Essentially it’s a high performance, large scale network scanner, the likes of which we haven’t seen for some time. There were a few such projects around in 2008-2009 like Angry IP Scanner & Unicornscan.

It comes out of the box with a set of plugins for services analysisembedded devices identification and to spot backdoors.

NINJA PingU takes advantage of raw sockets to reduce the three-way TCP handshake latency and it’s state. Directly sending IP packets also avoids the TCP stack overhead. It also implements non-blocking networking I/O in the plugin’s interface by means of epoll. Each component is multithreaded and they have built-in caches to minimize synchronization points. In addition, the results persistment operations are buffered to reduce disk writes.

Spotify Hacked – Rolls Out New Android App

So it looks like Spotify was hacked, or at least suffered some kind of breach – they claim user data for only one user was accessed and no payment details or password information was leaked. So it doesn’t seem to serious, but Spotify are reacting responsibly (which is good to see), disclosing the breach and taking action to make sure it doesn’t go any deeper.

As in most cases, once a malicious hacker or intruder has some kind of access, they will dig in deeper and eventually hit the motherload (like in the case of eBay for example).

Spotify Hacked

It seems to be something to do with the Android version of Spotify as they are asking users to download a new version (with completely new access tokens I assume), and re-enter their login credentials.

Spotify will ask all Android users of its streaming service to download a new version of its app after its internal systems were compromised.

The European music company disclosed the breach in a blog post on Tuesday. No password, financial, or payment information appears to have been accessed, and it only affected one user.

“We take these matters very seriously and as a general precaution will be asking certain Spotify users to re-enter their username and password to log in over the coming days,” explained Spotify’s chief technology officer, Oskar Stal, in a blog post. “As an extra safety step, we are going to guide Android app users to upgrade over the next few days.”

Though the breach was of a small scale, Spotify reacted quickly.

“As soon as we were aware of this issue we immediately launched an investigation. Information security and data protection are of great importance to us at Spotify,” the company explained in a more detailed FAQ on the breach.

Spotify has more than 40 million users and a big chunk of them are on Android, so this breach could have possibly exposed something fairly serious. But no real technical details have been released (as per norm) so we can’t really tell exactly what happened.

You can read the official blog post from the CTO here – Important Notice to Our Users

“Our evidence shows that only one Spotify user’s data has been accessed and this did not include any password, financial or payment information. We have reached out to this one individual. Based on our findings, we are not aware of any increased risk to users as a result of this incident.”

Given the tendency for breaches to quickly cascade into severe hacks, the company has chosen to react swiftly to try and quash any hacking attempts, we reckon.

“We do not believe this incident will affect your phone in any way. However, as an extra safety step, we are going to guide Android app users to upgrade over the next few days,” the company wrote.

However, users will lose all their offline playlists when they download the new app, so will have to re-download the songs to their phone. “We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, but hope you understand this is a necessary precaution to safeguard the quality of our service and protect our users.”

Whatever occurred, it doesn’t seem to effect iOS or Windows users at all and the general user base is not being asked to reset the passwords (nor even the Android users) so it does seem the user database is safe for the time being.

We will have to wait and see if any more details are forthcoming and if it turns out the hack went any deeper than currently publicised.

Pirated ‘Watch Dogs’ Game Made A Bitcoin Mining Botnet

Pretty smart idea this one, we wrote about Yahoo! spreading Bitcoin mining malware back in January, but we haven’t really seen any of that type of activity since then.

Watch Dogs Bitcoin Mining Botnet

But this, this is a much better target audience – gamers with high powered GPUs! Especially as this is one of most hyped ‘next-gen’ games for 2014 (yes I’ve been eagerly awaiting it for my PS4). But pirating Watch Dogs via a torrent from popular warez group SkidRow could make you part of a Bitcoin mining botnet!

Tens of thousands of pirate gamers have been enslaved in a Bitcoin botnet after downloading a cracked copy of popular game Watch Dogs.

A torrent of the infected title, which supposedly has had its copy-protection removed, had almost 40,000 active users (seeders and leachers) and was downloaded a further 18,440 times on 23 May on one site alone.

Pirates reported on internet forums that the torrent package masquerading under the popular torrent brand SkidRow had quietly installed a Bitcoin miner along with a working copy of the game.

The Windows miner ran via two executables installed in the folder AppData\Roaming\OaPja and would noticeably slow down lower performance machines sucking up to a quarter of CPU power.

Most sources have removed the offending torrent. Analysis has yet to be done to determine the location or identities of actors behind the attack.

It seems like it was a massively popular torrent, so the infection could easily reach tens of thousands of pirate gamers, which would then turn into a Bitcoin mining botnet with tens of thousands of users (A fairly profitable proposition, even with the current Bitcoin mining difficulty).

It’s also slightly ironic that the tagline for the game is “Everything is connected” as if you pirate it, everyone is connected..to the botnet. And of course the fact it’s a game about ‘hacking’ – although I haven’t played it yet and the reports of the hacking part aren’t great.

Gamers were choice targets for Bitcoin mining malefactors because they often ran high-end graphical processing units (GPUs) and shunned resource-draining anti-virus platforms.

“If you happen to download cracked games via Torrent or other P2P sharing services, chances are that you may become a victim of [a] lucrative trojan bundled with a genuine GPU miner,” BitDefender chief strategist Catalin Cosoi said of an early Bitcoin miner that targeted gamers.

“We advise you to start checking your system for signs of infection, especially if you are constantly losing frames-per-second.”

Using stolen dispersed compute resources was one of the few ways punters could make decent cash by crunching the increasingly difficult mathematical algorithms required to earn Bitcoins.

Crims have in recent years foisted the compute-intensive Bitcoin miners in a host of attacks targeting valuable high-end GPUs right down to ludicrously slow digital video recorders.

They might have been better off mining something else though (Scrypt based coins like Litecoin or perhaps even X11 mining), if they did X11 mining the users probably wouldn’t even notice any framedrops or their GPU fans spinning at full speed.

I’m honestly surprised we don’t see more botnets based around cryptocurrency mining, I guess it’s just not that mainstream yet. And you need a good bait to get so many people to install malware these days (and get past their anti-virus software).

Which is another reason gamers make a good target as they often don’t even use AV software or disable it for maximum performance.

eBay Hacked – 128 Million Users To Reset Passwords

The big news this week is that the massive online auction site eBay has been hacked, the compromise appears to have taken place a few months around February/March but has only come to light recently when employee login credentials were used.

eBay Hacked

This is 3 times bigger than the massive 42 Million passwords leaked by Cupid Media last November. But as least they are hashed this time, in the case of Cupid Media – the passwords were in plain text.

eBay‬ has told people to change their passwords for the online tat bazaar after its customer database was compromised.

Names, dates of birth, phone numbers, physical addresses, email addresses, and “encrypted” passwords, were copied from servers by attackers, we’re told. Credit card numbers and other financial records were not touched, and are stored separately, eBay claims. The website has hundreds of millions of user accounts.

Hackers accessed the database between late February and early March after obtaining a few employees’ login credentials, and then infiltrated the corporate network.

The digital break-in of staff accounts was detected about two weeks ago, and sparked a computer-forensics probe that is still ongoing. The website’s investigators today revealed a database containing customer information was accessed by the hackers.

eBay reckons everyone should change their passwords as a precaution – but it hasn’t uncovered any evidence of fraud linked to the breach, it claims. One assumes eBay’s techies have closed the hole the attackers exploited to infiltrate its systems, and has cleared its systems of the miscreants.

The passwords should be reasonably secure as they are hashed and apparently salted too, but the encryption algorithm used is currently unknown. If the passwords do go public, perhaps we can use something like HashTag to identify the hash type and see how secure it is.

And the salting, whilst it doesn’t make a single password much more secure, it does make cracking sets of passwords with Rainbow Tables much harder.

eBay’s handling of the breach notification has already created a fair bit of confusion: eBay-owned PayPal published then deleted an alert instructing users to change up their passwords this morning.

The brief item on PayPal’s site, which included the line “place holder text”, was pulled before the security breach was confirmed soon after in a press release. The warning was eventually restored, although PayPal is not affected by the eBay hack.

The exposure of encrypted passwords is bad news because it’s now easy to create convincing phishing emails urging people to change their eBay passwords – although said scam emails will instead take victims to a site masquerading as eBay.com to swipe their details.

Weak passwords could also be easily cracked if the website’s hashing algorithm isn’t up to scratch, and woe betide anyone using the same crap password across multiple sites with the same email address. The habit of many users of using the same password on multiple sites makes this type of attack all too possible.

You can read the official release on the corporate site here:

eBay Inc. To Ask eBay Users To Change Passwords

I hope more technical details are released as everything seems a bit wishy-washy right now, like how exactly did they get compromised? The biggest danger right now is probably Phishing, someone could capitilize on the list of confirmed eBay users and e-mail them all to reset their passwords on a bogus site.

It’s early days though, I’m sure more info will be released as time goes by (or not, as corporates to tend to like to keep a lid on such incidents).

Hook Analyser 3.1 – Malware Analysis Tool

Hook Analyser is a freeware application which allows an investigator/analyst to perform “static & run-time / dynamic” analysis of suspicious applications, also gather (analyse & co-related) threat intelligence related information (or data) from various open sources on the Internet.

Essentially it’s a malware analysis tool that has evolved to add some cyber threat intelligence features & mapping.

Hook Analyser 3.1 - Malware Analysis Tool

Hook Analyser is perhaps the only “free” software in the market which combines analysis of malware analysis and cyber threat intelligence capabilities. The software has been used by major Fortune 500 organisations.

Features/Functionality

  • Spawn and Hook to Application – Enables you to spawn an application, and hook into it
  • Hook to a specific running process – Allows you to hook to a running (active) process
  • Static Malware Analysis – Scans PE/Windows executables to identify potential malware traces
  • Application crash analysis – Allows you to analyse memory content when an application crashes
  • Exe extractor – This module essentially extracts executables from running process/s

The only similar tool I recall is – Malware Analyser v3.0 – A Static & Dynamic Malware Analysis Tool – which is by the same author and I assume is the precursor the more advanced Hook Analyser.

Navy Sys Admin Hacks Into Databases From Aircraft Carrier

So this story caught my eye and I found it pretty interesting as it reads like something out of a Tom Clancy novel crossed with a bunch of script kiddies, a Navy Sys Admin has been charged with conspiracy to hack – the interesting part was that he hacked the Navy (whilst working there..) and also did it from a Nuclear aircraft carrier!

Seems like a pretty interesting scenario, I’m more interested in the technical details but all that’s mentioned is a case of SQL Injection – which isn’t exactly high-tech top tier hacking.

Navy Hacker

It also seems like the hacks took place a fair time ago back in 2012, but the court case and its details are only surfacing now.

A former systems administrator on a Navy nuclear aircraft carrier has been charged with conspiring to hack into government systems during a digital joy ride that spanned several months in 2012.

Nicholas Paul Knight, 27, who referred to himself as a “nuclear black hat,” was discharged from the Navy after he allegedly attempted to hack into a Naval database while at sea serving as a systems administrator in the nuclear reactor department aboard the U.S.S. Harry S. Truman.

On Monday, he and Daniel Trenton Krueger, a community college student in Illinois, were charged with one count each of conspiracy to hack in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma.

They were allegedly part of a hacker gang that went by the names Team Digi7al and Team Hav0k. According to court documents, the gang also included at least three minors who have not been identified or charged in the case. Authorities say they were motivated by a combination of anti-government sentiment, boredom, and thrill-seeking.

The gang is accused of using SQL-injection hacks and other methods to gain access to various systems including ones belonging to the U.S. National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, which provides maps and other intelligence to the military, and a system belonging to the Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Worker Identification system. The latter contains biometric and other sensitive data on workers who are issued special credentials to access secure areas of maritime facilities and vessels.

The group also allegedly hacked or attempted to hack into systems belonging to Los Alamos National Lab, a number of universities and police departments, as well as the personal web site of Rashod Holmes, a musician who sold merchandise from his site.

There’s also a lot of discussion about background checks, with two sides of the camp as usual – how is someone who has a criminal history hired to work for the Navy as a sys admin? And the other side is that maybe his mad l33t hacking skills could be why he got the job in the first place.

Ethically it’s always an interesting debate, should you hire an ‘ex’ hacker – or is a hacker always a hacker? Can people change/reform/become morally sound? Or does having a bit of the dark-side in you make you better at your job? If you haven’t done any malicious activities – can you really understand the mindset of a malicious hacker?

But despite more than two dozens hacks, the group had sporadic success. During an attempted breach of a Los Alamos Lab computer in April 2012, a systems administrator detected the hack and halted it before they could steal much data, according to a court document (.pdf).

The hack of a computer at the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency got them the schematics for more than ten databases, but they failed to download the sensitive agency data they sought from the computer, authorities say.

A May 2012 breach of an AT&T Uverse computer, however, got them mobile phone numbers of about 7,500 customers, as well as some email addresses of customers, physical addresses and cleartext passwords, the government says.

Three months later, according to authorities, they hacked into the website of Rashod Holmes and stole data on 1,000 customers, including the private bank account information of about 70 customers. They also breached the email account of the Ambassador of Peru in Bolivia and made off with the entire email contents of his account.

The group boasted about their exploits through a Twitter account — @TeamDigi7al — and even published the personal information they stole to storage sites where others could access the data, authorities say.

Knight, known online as “Inertia” and “Logic,” began hacking at age 16, according to the government, and was allegedly the self-professed leader of the gang who handled much of the publicity. Krueger, who was studying to be a network administrator and was known online as “Thor” and “Gambit,” allegedly performed most of the technical hacking.

The investigation, conducted by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, began in June 2012, when a breach of the Navy’s Smart Web Move website and database occurred. The system, also known as Navy-SWM, is used by the Navy to manage the transfer and relocation of personnel and their family members in all branches of the military — Navy, Army, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. The database contained more than a decade’s worth of stored sensitive personal data on about 220,000 service members and their families, including Social Security numbers and birth dates. It also stored the answers to security questions that members used to reset their passwords for the system — such as their mother’s maiden name or the names of their children.

We’ll have to see what kind of charges get put up for this, I’m guessing there’s not going to be any ridiculous claims of terrorism in this case? As it’s quite clearly hacking without much of a point other than ‘because we can’.

You’d think someone working for the Navy would be smart enough to not hack the Navy AND get caught, but hey – who are we to judge.
