Our sensors recently picked up a Web site infection, affecting the Web site of the Ministry of Micro And Medium Enterprises (MSME DI Jaipur). And although the Black Hole Exploit Kit serving URL is currently not accepting any connections, it’s known to have been used in previous client-side exploit serving campaigns.
Let’s profile the campaign, list the malicious URLs, associate them with previously launched malicious campaigns, and provide actual MD5s for historical OSINT preservation/attribution purposes.
Recently we have seen a spike of this ransomware in the wild and it appears as though its creators are not easily giving up. This infection takes your computer hostage and makes it look as though the authorities are after you, when in reality this is all just an elaborate attempt to make you pay to unblock your computer.

We have just intercepted yet another currently ongoing malicious spam campaign, enticing users into executing a fake Export License/Payment Invoice. Once gullible and socially engineering users do so, their PCs automatically join the botnet operated by the cybercriminals.
Just as we anticipated in our previous analysis of a commercially available Bitcoin miner, cybercriminals continue “innovating” on this front by releasing more advanced and customizable invisible Bitcoin miners for fellow cybercriminals to take advantage of.
In this post, we’ll profile yet another invisible Bitcoin miner, once again available for purchase on the international cybercrime-friendly marketplace, emphasize on its key differentiation features, as well as provide MD5s of known miner variants.
Want to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)? You may want to skip the CVs/personally identifiable information soliciting campaign that I’m about to profile in this post, as you’d be involuntarily sharing your information with what looks like an intelligence gathering operation.
With more Web-based DIY malware crypterscontinuing to pop up online, both novice and experienced cybercriminals can easily obfuscate any malicious sample into an undetected — through signatures based scanning not behavioral detection — piece of malware, successfully bypassing perimeter based defenses currently in place.
In this post I’ll profile a recently launched service, empowering virtually everyone using it, with the capability to generate undetected malware. I’ll emphasize on its key differentiation factors and provide sample MD5s known to have been crypted using the service.
Trust is vital. It’s also the cornerstone for the growth of E-commerce in general, largely thanks to the mass acceptable of a trusted model for processing financial data and personally identifiable information. For years, the acceptance and mass implementation of PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) has been a driving force that resulted in a pseudo-secure B2C, B2B, and B2G electronic marketplace, connecting the world’s economies in a 24/7/365 operating global ecosystem.
