Multilingual Worm Spreads Over MSN Messenger

Use Netsparker


Another MSN worm spreading with the same tactics as usual, “Wanna see my pictures before i send em to facebook?” and so on.

The only really interesting thing about this worm is it sends the message in the language of the locale installed on the infected machine, this is pretty intelligent and is much more likely to work as most of the people on sometimes contact list are probably from the same country or at least use the same language.

The IRCBOT-RB Trojan poses as messages containing links to pictures on social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook. Typical come-ons involve messages such as “Wanna see my pictures before i send em to facebook?”. Clicking on a link takes users to booby-trapped websites.

Unusually, the polyglot malware changes these messages according to the language of the affected operating system used. Compromised machines are infected by a simple bot agent that leaves the hardware hooked up to a central control server, awaiting instructions.

This would mean it’s much more believable than someone who speaks Portuguese to their friends sending a message in English. As usual please educate people not to blindly follow or click links and definitely don’t accept files sent by friends on MSN/Yahoo! or AIM as they are most likely auto-generated by a trojan.

Do message the person back manually and ask them if they really sent it.

Metasploit Framework v3.1 Released for Download

The New Acunetix V12 Engine


Ah Metasploit development cycle seems to be picking up, I guess with greater community support the bugs get ironed out and the new features introduced faster.

Good to see an update so soon after Metasploit Framework v3.0 was released.

I keep closely up to date with Metasploit as it’s pretty much the best free tool out there right now, and certainly the most exciting along with Nmap.

The latest version features a graphical user interface, full support for the Windows platform, and over 450 modules, including 265 remote exploits. Metasploit 3.1 consolidates a year of research and development, integrating ideas and code from some of the sharpest and most innovative folks in the security research community.

The graphical user interface is a major step forward for Metasploit users on the Windows platform. Development of this interface was driven by Fabrice Mourron and provides a wizard-based exploitation system, a graphical file and process browser for the Meterpreter payloads, and a multi-tab console interface. “The Metasploit GUI puts Windows users on the same footing as those running Unix by giving them access to a console interface to the framework” said H D Moore, who worked with Fabrice on the GUI project.

The latest incarnation of the framework includes a bristling arsenal of exploit modules that are sure to put a smile on the face of every information warrior. Notable exploits in the 3.1 release include a remote, unpatched kernel-land exploit for Novell Netware, written by toto, a series of 802.11 fuzzing modules that can spray the local airspace with malformed frames, taking out a wide swath of wireless-enabled devices, and a battery of exploits targeted at Borland’s InterBase product line. “I found so many holes that I just gave up releasing all of them”, said Ramon de Carvalho, founder of RISE Security, and Metasploit contributor.

Metasploit runs on all modern operating systems, including Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, and most flavors of BSD. Metasploit has been used on a wide range of hardware platforms, from massive Unix mainframes to the tiny Nokia n800 handheld. Users can access Metasploit using the tab-completing console interface, the Gtk GUI, the command line scripting interface, or the AJAX-enabled web interface. The Windows version of Metasploit includes all software dependencies and a selection of useful networking tools.

You can download Metasploit v3.1 here:

Metasploit v3.1 tar.gz
Metasploit v3.1 exe

Data Leakage Bug in Mozilla Firefox Confirmed

Use Netsparker


It seems a data leakage bug has struck Firefox recently and has been confirmed by Window Snyder the security bod at Mozilla.

It’s basically a Chrome directory traversal bug (It seems a lot of the Firefox issues have had to do with chrome?).

It’s rated as low risk, but it can give away the existence of files (if the attacker knows the name and location).

The bug resides in Firefox’s chrome protocol scheme and allows for a directory traversal when certain types of extensions are installed. Attackers could use it to detect if certain programs or files are present on a machine, gaining information to use in perpetrating another, more malicious exploit.

Normally, Firefox’s chrome package is restricted to a limited number of directories, but a bug in the way it handles escaped sequences (i.e. %2e%2e%2f) allows attackers to escape those confines and access more sensitive parts of a user’s computer. The exploit only works if a user has made use of Firefox extensions that are “flat,” this is, those that don’t package their files in a jar archive. Examples of flat add-ons include Download Statusbar and Greasemonkey.

You can protect yourself by using NoScript, which I would guess most of you guys are using already.

The open bug can be found here.

argus – Auditing Network Activity – Performance & Status Monitoring

Use Netsparker


Another tool for the security side, good for forensics, monitoring and auditing.

Argus is a fixed-model Real Time Flow Monitor designed to track and report on the status and performance of all network transactions seen in a data network traffic stream. Argus provides a common data format for reporting flow metrics such as connectivity, capacity, demand, loss, delay, and jitter on a per transaction basis. The record format that Argus uses is flexible and extensible, supporting generic flow identifiers and metrics, as well as application/protocol specific information.

Argus can be used to analyze and report on the contents of packet capture files or it can run as a continuous monitor, examining data from a live interface; generating an audit log of all the network activity seen in the packet stream. Argus can be deployed to monitor individual end-systems, or an entire enterprises network activity. As a continuous monitor, Argus provides both push and pull data handling models, to allow flexible strategies for collecting network audit data. Argus data clients support a range of operations, such as sorting, aggregation, archival and reporting. There is XML support for Argus data, which makes handling Argus data a bit easier.

Argus currently runs on Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, and MAC OS X and its client programs have also been ported to Cygwin. The software should be portable to many versions of Unix with little or no modification. Performance is such that auditing an entire enterprises Internet activity can be accomplished using modest computing resources.

You can download argus here:

argus-2.0.6 (various options available)

Hacked Embassy Websites Delivering Malware

The New Acunetix V12 Engine


It seems like malware pushers have found another avenue to delivery their payloads, Embassy websites. Which makes sense as they are probably not maintained well nor updated often meaning the chance they are easily compromised is quite high.

Plus a lot probably use off the shelf CMS software, which when not updated is a playground for hackers.

Add embassy websites to the growing list of hacked internet destinations trying to infect visitor PCs with malware.

Earlier this week, the site for the Netherlands Embassy in Russia was caught serving a script that tried to dupe people into installing software that made their machines part of a botnet, according to Ofer Elzam, director of product management for eSafe, a business unit of Aladdin that blocks malicious web content from its customers’ networks. In November the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia and Ukraine Embassy Web site in Lithuania were found to be launching similar attacks, he says.

Again it just goes to show that a lot of malicious attacks are based around human elements, in this case trust. People will naturally trust an Embassy website, so if you embed it with a message to download some kind of protective software…a lot of people will do it.

Frequently, the compromised websites launch code that scours a visitor’s machine for unpatched vulnerabilities in Windows or in applications such as Apple’s QuickTime media player. Such was the case in two recent hacking sprees that affected hundreds of thousands of sites, including those of mom-and-pop ecommerce companies and the City of Cleveland.

But in the case of the Netherlands Embassy, the attackers simply included text that instructed visitors to download and install the malware. Of course, no self-respecting Reg reader would fall for such a ruse. But sadly, Elzam says, because the instruction is coming from a trusted site, plenty of less savvy users do fall for the ploy. Saps.

Again we can just educate and spread the news, tell people not to trust any web sites if possible, use md5 hashes, use trusted sources, scan for the viruses etc..

Trust no one! (Except me of course *evil laugh*).
