Heimdal Security Company: TorrentLocker Spoofs Telecom Heavyweight Telia

Spoofing the identities of big, respected companies is a key tactic that cyber criminals use to trick their victims. We’ve seen it happen with IKEA and especially Post Denmark and Postnord. And we’ve seen not once, not twice, but tens of times in the past year alone!

And now it’s happening again. This time, cyber criminals are impersonating Telia, a telecom giant with operations in Europe and Asia. Telia has hundreds of millions of customers who could all become targets for this ransomware attack.

Highly targeted campaign using a mix of attack vectors

The Torrentlocker family is well known for its highly targeted spam email campaigns. Attackers carefully localize the emails, ransom notes and other elements tied to the campaign. The more targeted the attack, the higher the chances for it to be effective.

In this attack, victims are baited with an invoice which appears to come from Telia, a trusted telecom company. The primary target for the attack is Sweden, but additional campaigns may follow, replicating the same model.

The psychological factor plays a key role in current malware attacks, but it’s only used as a hook. Once the victim triggers the infection, the malicious tech behind it comes into play. Here’s how the attack unfolds.

The spam email used in this attack has the following contents:

From: [spoofed / fake return address]

Subject line: Fwd: [name of recipient] Invoice for Telia

The spam email a single link, which points to a bunch of compromised web pages [sanitized]:

http://bluecrabcharters [.] com.au/1yaI3zFtWAOb/sD5TRZz.php?id=[%navn to receive%] -> http://eok9.teliabills [.] Com / mditqyzo.php? Id = bWF0c0BoZW1wZWwuY29t

When the victim clicks the link, he/she will be redirected to the webpage you can see below, where a Captcha code is displayed. When the victim fills out the code, the TorrentLocker payload will be downloaded from the following servers [sanitized]:

http://tendearteplast [.] com / 1.exe
http://gettingmarried [.] ie / 1.exe

It’s important to know that the payload will be only downloaded once per link and on one condition: that the victim’s IP is from Sweden. If an IP from another country is used, the victim will be redirected to Google. Cyber criminals didn’t overlook a single detail when building this campaign.

The moment the malicious code is run, it will connect to a central C & C server [sanitized]:

manybigtoys [.] Com

It will then register the infected computer and the data harvested from it, which includes certificates from the infected device. A new thing about this attack is that the ransomware will inject itself into the memory of the “explorer.exe” process (child process). It will then drop the main component with an arbitrary filename. Available contact details on the device will also be collected and sent to the aforementioned C&C server, certainly to be used in future spam campaigns.

Multiple subdomains are used as part of the infection chain, the same as in previous ransomware campaigns [sanitized]:

https://pvebubadan.manybigtoys [.] com / topic.php
https://ucat.manybigtoys [.] com / topic.php
https://urile.manybigtoys [.] com / topic.php

The next step is for TorrentLocker to encrypt all the data files available on the local drive and on connected network drives, if there are any.

In this attack, TorrentLocker also has the ability to remain dormant. This sleep function helps it avoid sandboxing technologies. Among other things, the ransomware generates a value of “6000” before touching “explorer.exe” or “vssadmin.exe”.

Conclusion

We can’t emphasize this enough: a backup is the best protection for your data in case of a ransomware attack! Actually, you should have multiple backups. And use this anti-ransomware checklist to see what else you can do to ensure that you’re never hit by encrypting malware.

We have a long road ahead when it comes to minimizing the impact of ransomware, which is one more reason to push for basic cyber security education and proactive protection.

Global Singapore Visa processing tips: Immigration Fraud

Don’t be the victim of a scam

If the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.

Beware of immigration fraud and scams

You may have seen advertisements that promise work permits and guarantee high-paying jobs in Canada. Some offer scholarships to study at Canadian universities or colleges. Potential newcomers to Canada should be aware that many offers like these are fraudulent. In fact, using the services of people who make such promises may result in your application to Canada being rejected.

Canada’s immigration system is based on fairness. Every application receives equal consideration. No one has special connections, and no one can promise your application will be given special treatment or guarantee that it will be approved.

What you need to know

•    You are not obliged to hire a representative, including a consultant, lawyer, Quebec notary or paralegal regulated by a law society, to apply for a visa or for Canadian citizenship, but if you do, choose carefully.
•    Representatives do not have special connections with Canadian government officials and cannot guarantee you a visa. Nobody can guarantee you a visa.
•    Only Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) officers can decide whether or not to issue a visa. Don’t be tempted into using false documents. It is a serious crime to misrepresent yourself by making false statements or submitting false documents when dealing with CIC. If you do this, your application will be refused. You will also face serious consequences. Depending on the situation, these may include:
1.    no entry into Canada for at least five years;
2.    a permanent record of fraud in CIC’s database;
3.    revocation of your permanent resident status or Canadian citizenship;
4.    being charged with a crime; or
5.    removal from Canada.
•    Do not enter into a marriage that is not genuine in order to obtain permanent residence in Canada. Beware of Internet scams and false websites. The official CIC website is www.cic.gc.ca.
•    You will find free information for any type of visa on CIC’s website.
•    Processing fees are the same at all Canadian visa offices around the world. Fees in local currency are based on official exchange rates and correspond with the standard fee charged in Canadian dollars.
•    Canadian visa offices will never ask you to deposit money into an individual’s personal bank account or to transfer money through aspecific private money transfer company.
•    If you have questions, contact CIC or the visa office responsible for your area.

A seminar by Meir Ezra

Finance is the subject of controlling or handling the money of an organization, country or individual.

Being able to use the laws of finance will ensure you will control money, and therefore, will have money.

While finance is a very important subject, it is a simple subject; and yet most people seem to have a lot of problems with controlling or handling money.

This seminar will teach you the exact technology of controlling your finances - and therefore the result will be financial success.

By learning the rules to viability and prosperity, you will become the cause, and no longer the effect, over your personal and business finances.

Finance has a very exact set of SIMPLE rules that, if followed, you simply can not fail. If you ever failed financially, you violated these rules. And they are so simple!

Learn these rules and follow them and you cannot fail!

Furthermore, this seminar will teach you the truth about wealth; what the most successful entrepreneurs in the world do so as to continually expand; how to be able to buy anything you want; how to control expenditure; how to increase income; how to ensure you and your company never spend more than you make; and how exactly to “make it before you spend it”.

This and much more will be taught in the Financial Expansion seminar.

You need this seminar if:
* You are worried about money.
* You don’t have as much money as you’d like.
* You owe more than you make.

* You lost money and don’t seem to be able to recover.
* And if you have any financial struggle of any kind whatsoever… We will fix it – guaranteed!

Gibson and Associates Solicitors: What Are My Rights As A Consumer?

As a consumer in Ireland you have certain rights afforded to you by the law and it is therefore important for you to understand how these http://gibsonandassociates.ie/news/what-are-my-rights-as-a-consumer/">rights apply in certain circumstances so that you are protected and you know what to do if things do go wrong.

Consumer laws in Ireland and in the EU protect you from unsafe goods and also allow you to have the information you need to make the right choice on the product you buy and the business you purchase from.

The law clearly defines who is a consumer and this is important to understand if you have any legal rights to make a claim against them if anything goes wrong. A consumer is someone who buy goods or a service for themselves from a business who sell goods or services to consumers.

Consumer law in Ireland states that you are not a consumer if you are buying for business use, if you have been given a gift or if you buy from someone who is not in that line of business.

When you buy from a business, this triggers a contract between you and them, even when there is nothing stipulated in writing.

Whilst oral contracts are still enforceable by law, it may be difficult to get a clear idea of what was agreed in the first place, therefore a written contract may offer better protection in the long run. There is nothing in the law that stipulates what should be included in a consumer contract, only that it must be fair and written in a clear and easy to understand way.

Consumer contracts are covered by the Sale of Goods and Supply of Services Act 1980 and you are given protection under this law that:

" The goods will be of reasonable quality

" The goods are fit for their purpose

" The goods are as they have been described

You have the right to return any good straight the shop where you purchased them if they do not fit the above criteria and you should do this as soon as possible and take along your receipt or proof of purchase.

When you are supplied a service, the business should:

" Have the right skills to provide you with the service

" Provide the service with attentiveness and thoroughness

" Ensure that the products and equipment they use are of a good standard

If this does not happen, you should contact the supplier and raise your issues with them. Be clear about when you would like your complaint resolved and allow them time to put it right.
