Two of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ greatest science fiction series meet at last, as the lost continent of Caspak from THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT and PELLUCIDAR, the prehistoric world at the Earth’s core, collide in one colossal crossover!

But they are all about to be thrust into a war of worlds unlike anything ever seen, as the insidious inhabitants of Pellucidar find their way to the surface world, right in the heart of Caspak. The goal of the telepathic, prehistoric Mahars is the total subjugation of Caspak, a land that they seek to claim as their new kingdom, and with an invasion force of giant ants and an army of corpse-like, cannibalistic, subterranean creatures, they just might succeed! Officially licensed by Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., this is a series that any lover of dinosaurs, science fiction, lost worlds, and high adventure must not miss!

Kickstarter - Dark Naga - The City of Talos for 5th Edition

Tenkar's Tavern - Fri, 04/21/2017 - 02:15

Dark Naga Adventures has had some pretty decent Kickstarter releases in the past and The City of Talos looks like it will maintain the same high quality. My main issue is that its for 9th level characters. Regardless of edition, my campaigns never rise to that level ;)

What do you get for your pledge?
  • Saddle-Stitched 32+ page adventure book 
  • Saddle-Stitched 32+ page gazetteer 
  • Detached Color cover with color maps on the interior. These maps are far too elaborate and gorgeous to produce in monochrome. 
  • 12 full-color maps 
  • 8 pages of black and white art, more when we unlock stretch goals. 
"Detachable color cover with color maps on the interior?" Le sigh ;)

ARTISTS TAKE CENTER STAGE AS DC INTRODUCES DARK MATTER

First Comics News - Fri, 04/21/2017 - 00:57
New Characters, New Stories Debut When Legendary Artists Collaborate with Writers

Retailers had a front-row seat at Chicago’s C2E2 today when DC Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee unveiled six new DC Universe titles under the banner Dark Matter, partnering the most acclaimed artists in the industry with award-winning writers. Beginning this August, under the guidance of iconic artists Greg Capullo, Andy Kubert, Jim Lee and John Romita Jr., DC will launch new titles THE SILENCER, SIDEWAYS, IMMORTAL MEN, DAMAGE, NEW CHALLENGERS, with characters from each of these series first appearing in the previously announced DARK NIGHTS: METAL.

The Dark Matter comics will focus on epic graphic storytelling. Joining Capullo, Kubert, Lee and Romita Jr. to round out the all-star cast of creators are Dan Abnett, Tony S. Daniel, Dan DiDio, Justin Jordan, Kenneth Rocafort, Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV and Robert Venditti.

“What excites me most is that this series of books takes full advantage of the talent and vision of the creative team,” says DC Publisher Dan DiDio. “Comics are a visual medium and with these titles, the artists are working hand in hand with the writers in shaping the look and direction of their characters. In reaffirming the craft of making comics, we’ve brought together a master class of talent, led by Greg Capullo, Andy Kubert, Jim Lee and John Romita Jr., to help set the style, tone and visual direction for these books. With these four industry giants taking the lead, I feel we can bring the power and energy expected from superhero storytelling back to the page.”

Dark Matter is a return to bringing both the writer and artist to the fore to unlock their full potential,” explains Publisher Jim Lee. “At the talent summit we discussed what was missing in comics and how we could create something that’s new for this generation of fans. The result was Dark Matter. You’ll see bombastic action scenes and a visual narrative driven by the artist. This approach has energized the creators involved, myself included, and we’re going to have a lot of fun with these books.”

To get fans excited about this upcoming launch, DC is releasing a series of interviews with these masters in their homes. Capullo, Kubert, Lee and Romita Jr. highlight their legacy and process and discuss working with their collaborators on new stories in the DC Universe.

The first wave of DC Universe Dark Matter titles includes:

THE SILENCER
Debuting in September
Written by Dan Abnett with art by John Romita Jr.
Honor Guest was the world’s deadliest assassin, until she traded it all for a chance at a “normal” life in the suburbs, free from the constant death and destruction. But as her former life comes back to haunt her, Honor must strip away her suburban persona and protect her family as THE SILENCER.

SIDEWAYS
Debuting in September
Written by Dan DiDio and Justin Jordan with art by Kenneth Rocafort
Forever changed by the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, a teenager struggles to live through high school as he comes in contact with Dark Matter and gains the power to teleport through the Dark Dimension. But each leap brings the new hero one step closer to succumbing to the allure of his new power and its dark origins.

IMMORTAL MEN
Debuting in October
Written by James Tynion IV with art by Jim Lee
Born at the dawn of time, five siblings find that with eternal life comes eternal war. As the forces of destruction march into the modern world, they operate from the shadows, recruiting the elite against the foes who seek to bring about Armageddon. They are humankind’s hope sprung eternal….they are the IMMORTAL MEN.

DAMAGE
Debuting in October
Written by Robert Venditti with art by Tony S. Daniel
Ethan Avery only wanted to serve his country, but promises of becoming the ultimate weapon leave the new recruit living a nightmare. Cursed with the ability to unleash an unstoppable monster for one hour at a time, Ethan only wants to live out his life in peace. But if he can tame the monster inside, it might just be able to do more good for the country than Ethan ever expected.

NEW CHALLENGERS 
Debuting in December
Written by Scott Snyder with art by Andy Kubert
Characters live on borrowed time, running from death toward the greatest mysteries, wonders and terrors of the universe! It’s a new cast, new mission, but in conversation with the history and greatness of the original Challengers of the Unknown. The story starts with Challengers Mountain returning after having been missing for years, and only gets wilder from there…

DARK NIGHTS: METAL
Debuting in August
Written by Scott Snyder with art by Greg Capullo
It all begins with DARK NIGHTS: METAL, a story that will examine every choice a hero doesn’t take and every path they don’t walk, opening up worlds that are forged by nightmares. Characters and stories from each of the Dark Matter books will be plotted throughout this series.

DARK HORSE CELEBRATES 4/20 WITH CRAIG YOE’S ”REEFER MADNESS”

First Comics News - Fri, 04/21/2017 - 00:21

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (April 20, 2017)—Today we celebrate marijuana with smoke rings puffing and pluming across the nation. Now that eight states have legalized it for recreational use and twenty-eight for medical use, it is especially fun to relive the hysteria surrounding marijuana as a perceived gateway drug from the 1930s to the 1950s and beyond. And now you can do so in the comfort of your home with Reefer Madness from Dark Horse Books.

Like the antidrug propaganda films of that era, these stories range from comically misinformed to soberly concerned about the influence of Mary Jane on the youth of America. Titles like “Teenage Dope Slaves,” “Satan’s Cigarettes,” and “Hopped-Up Killer” make it clear that the gulf in attitudes between today and the days of Reefer Madness could not be wider.

Includes an in-depth introduction discussing the campaigns against pot by the first drug czar, Harry Anslinger, and newspaperman William Randolph Hearst, with lurid covers from many of the comics and magazines of the day. The comics collected in Reefer Madness come from comic book legends like Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (Adventure Comics), Frank Frazetta, Jerry Robinson, and Jack Kirby. Eisner and Harvey Award–winning hippie Craig Yoe brings a new collection of wacky, wild, and culturally relevant comics to the mix.

“This is one of the most fun books I’ve ever put together. Some of the writers and artists that created these comics must have been smoking something to concoct these ludicrous and loony tales of youth gone bad!” said Yoe. “The comics will serve up lots of lusty laughs for those who partake of contraband ‘giggle-smoke.’ Others attempting to snuff out the wicked marijuana cigarettes that they are sure unleash unbridled passions will see these comics as moral tales of dire warning!”

Reefer Madness hits shelves summer 2017.

Some Ideas for The Tavern's Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Post - Elementals and Elementalists

Tenkar's Tavern - Thu, 04/20/2017 - 22:14
Art by Brett Neufeld
I'm sitting here thinking about what I'm going to add to the Swords & Wizardry Community this weekend, and while I'd like to say "Swords & Wizardry Continual Light" will be ready for download this Saturday, its not back yet from being proofread. Best laid plans and all that shit.

So, what is your bartender ever going to do?

Well, Dennis Sustare suggested ecological themed adventure for Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day intersecting with Earth Day, but I'm going to take that a bit further or at least in another direction.

I'll be introducing minor and lesser elementals to the SWL bestiary as well as a new class, plotted through level 7 - an Elementalist. We'll even include the optional advancement for when a SWCL class hits their cap of level 7. I suspect it will appear later in Torchlight and at that point I'll do a Swords & Wizardry Complete conversion through level 10.

Fear not! Swords & Wizardry Continual Light is nearly here ;)

He was saying its not like there is a low level adventure that can really exploit the Hyperborean countryside? Well, Needleshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11243274667834930867noreply@blogger.com0

Also the four-part “Vampire Squadron. ” In the dark days of winter, 1940, a handful of pilots show up at a remote Royal Air Force base in rural England. Some are British, some are Poles, Czechs, French, Australians, Canadians- the orphans of Nazi-occupied Europe and the children of the Empire. No other squadron wants them; they don’t even like each other much. Which is unfortunate, because they’re about to take to the deadly night skies at the height of the Blitz- Hitler’s dreadful aerial onslaught on the cities of Britain.

Binary Options malvertising campaign drops ISFB banking Trojan

Malwarebytes - Thu, 04/20/2017 - 15:00

We have been witnessing a series of malvertising attacks that keep a low profile with decoy websites and strong IP address filtering. We are calling it the ‘Binary Options’ campaign because the threat actor is using the front of a trading company to hide the real nature of his business.

There have been similar uses of fake façades as a gateway to exploit kits. For instance, Magnitude EK is known to use gates that have to do with Bitcoin, investment websites and such, as detailed in this Proofpoint blog entry.

In this particular case, the threat actor stole the web template from “Capital World Option“, a company that provides a platform for trading binary options. Participants must predict whether the price of an asset will rise or fall within a given time frame, which defines whether or not they will make money. Binary options have earned a bad reputation though and some countries have even banned them.

Fraudulent infrastructure

Below is a screenshot of the legitimate website that is being impersonated. There are some differences between the real one and the fakes; the former is using SSL and was registered a while ago. Also, some of the website functionality is not working properly with the decoy versions.

Legitimate site:

Decoy site that ripped all the branding:

Those fake sites are only meant to be viewed if you are not a target of this particular malware campaign. In other words, if you load the infection chain from the malvertising call and see the site, you will not be infected. Infections happen when the fraudulent server forwards victims directly to a second gate, without showing them any of the site’s content.

The same threat actor has registered many different domains all purporting to be lookalikes using a similar naming convention. The recent creation dates for these decoy sites is a hint that they are not likely to be legitimate:

Domain Name: CAPITALWORLDOPTION.COM Creation Date: 2017-04-04T09:15:14Z Registrar: PDR Ltd. d/b/a PublicDomainRegistry.com Registrant Email: detes55@mail.ru

Malvertising chain

The attack starts off with an ad call from one of a few ad networks (Popads, PlugRush were detected in our telemetry) and redirects users to the decoy website where a quick IP check is performed.

Only legitimate users will be redirected to the second stage server, which also performs its own check. Once again, unwanted traffic will be dumped (and a message – perhaps from the threat actor? – “No time for rent” passed in the URL):

Otherwise, users that have made it past those two gates will be presented with the RIG exploit kit.

Banking Trojan

The final payload consistently distributed via this campaign (across different geolocations) appears to be an ISFB variant (AKA Dreambot, Gozi, Usrnif), based off an old but resilient banking Trojan. Some of its features include web injects for the victims’ browsers, screenshoting, video recording, transparent redirections, etc.

The artifacts left on the system were very similar to those described in a Proofpoint blog about Dreambot and the samples we collected also download a Tor client. The registry entry for the Tor client can be seen below:

Modular structure

The sample retrieves several modules once it sets hold onto a victim machine and below is an overview:

Original Dropper

-> loader.dll injected into svchost.exe

-> client.dll and tordll.dll downloaded and injected into explorer.exe and into browsers

The main executable injects a file (loader.dll) into svchost.exe in order to download other modules which are encrypted during transport (tor.dll and client.dll) both available in 32 and 64 bits:

We can notice the “ISFB” signature within the malware code:

This piece of malware has some anti-VM features, for example, it checks on the mouse cursor:

Modules are injected into explorer.exe and try to establish a connection to an .onion address. Browsers are also injected, via client.dll as depicted below with Mozilla Firefox:

There are scores of hosts that are contacted post infection, as well as the Tor connections that trigger many ET rules as ET TOR Known Tor Relay/Router (Not Exit) Node Traffic group.

Conclusion

This particular campaign focused on a very specific malvertising chain leading to the RIG exploit kit and – as far as we could tell – dropping the same payload each time, no matter the geolocation of the victim.

Banking Trojans have been a little bit forgotten about these days as they are overshadowed by ransomware. However, they still represent a significant threat and actually do operate safely in the shadows, manipulating banking portals to perform wire transfers unbeknownst to their victims or even the banks they are targeting.

Malwarebytes users are protected against this threat at various levels: domain and IP blocks, exploit mitigation for RIG EK, and detection of the malware payloads.
