Attacks in which a Malware is Installed and Controlled by a Remote Link
- by Team
This article describes attacks in which a malware is installed and controlled by a rogue software module with a remote link.
In general, an attacker in China is aware that the software module he or she controls is an executable and not a harmless file. Furthermore, an attacker knows that the software module he or she controls is vulnerable to a security bug or security issue and that the module is installed on a network and is also exploited automatically to install the malware to the target system.
Displaying a suspicious web site that is not the attacker’s domain.
Using the network bandwidth.
Using the Internet to perform network denial of service attacks.
Using Internet services or Web servers to perform denial of service attacks.
Using the local network to download files.
Using a specially crafted URL to perform a denial of service attack.
Using the local network to take control of the target’s user account.
Using the local network to take control of the target’s control panel or software management tools like the antivirus or browser to perform a denial of service attack.
Using a network firewall to take control over the target’s network traffic.
Using a network sniffer to obtain data about the target system.
Using a local network drive to grab data about the target system.
Using the local network to execute files normally that cannot be executed by normal Windows operating systems.
Using an infected system to use it as a zombie system.
Disable the malicious software module.
Remove all the files that the malicious software module has installed.
Stop the computer from booting.
Block any traffic that goes to the malicious software module.
Block all Internet traffic that goes to the malicious software module.
Block all data transmission on the Internet that goes to the malicious module.
Describes the tactics of Chinese attackers.
Description of Attack: On 9 August 2007, an antivirus software was installed on a machine infected with a worm. When the download finished, the software scanned the computer and reported it as infected. After that, the antivirus software installed a new version on the host computer and continued to scan the host computer to prevent the virus from spreading. The computer was infected by a third party’s software. At 2:23 AM, a Trojan Horse was planted on the host computer, which downloaded a file, and the host computer ran it without any user interaction. The download downloaded a file from the worm’s website, which was hosted on the net. The Trojan, called Lantitracker, was designed to spread when no infection control solution was in place. The Trojan downloaded the virus on the infected host by using a web based browser, so no installation or virus removal software was installed on the host computer. The Trojan installed malware and installed itself on the host computer by infecting the computer’s operating system. When the malware infected the host computer, it downloaded a file from the worm’s website, but the malware was hidden in the malicious software. The malware is called the Trojan. The malware was designed to delete itself from the host computer and to infect another computer when the previous virus was deleted. The malware could hide on the host computer until the next boot. After the malware downloaded and installed itself on the host computer, the malware deleted itself from the host computer by downloading it again from the worm’s website. When the malware was deleted, it deleted itself from the network of infected computers by downloading it again from the worm‘s website. The malware was also designed to delete itself from the infected computer when the infected host computer failed to respond to a command from the infected computer. After the malware was deleted, it could delete itself from the infected host computer. When the malware was downloaded and installed on the infected host computer, the malware deleted itself from the infected host computer by using a web based browser, so no installation or virus removing software was installed on the infected host computer. The malware was written to prevent the malware from encrypting itself, which is why the malware was designed to be removed when the infection control system is in place. After the malware was installed on the infected host computer, the malware deleted itself by running the executable files in the malware.
Identifying persistent attackers with penetration monitoring
“Peripheral devices, including USB keyboards, printers, scanners, and storage devices, are widely used by everyday users for writing down passwords and personal information. The threat surface of these devices is increasing since users are more likely to carry these types of devices with them, and there is more attention to security.
The threat surface of this equipment is increasing since users are more likely to carry these types of devices with them, and there is more attention to security.
The vulnerabilities associated with USB keyboards and scanners for example are not new, but there has been a gradual decrease in such attacks. This is because the devices have become smaller, and therefore the attacks on them are more limited. They still exist, but the focus has become more on the devices themselves, and not on the attackers.
An attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, and thus the damage is much greater. It’s important to realize that a USB keyboard is still vulnerable to these attacks, so it’s important to make sure that you check for such vulnerabilities as soon as you can.
The following sections focus on USB keyboards and scanners. They should be the first things that you should check for when discovering or creating a device.
USB Kiosk and Scanner USB keyboards and scanners are small devices, which can be carried around with you on your person. Although devices such as keyboards and scanners have been vulnerable to attacks for years, these vulnerabilities can become more exposed when you use a keyboard or scanner. You don’t need a PC to attack these devices. The attacks are still possible on the USB port of these devices, but they can be more difficult and time consuming to exploit.
A USB keyboard is attached to the USB port on the computer, which is considered the most vulnerable point for attacks on them. As these types of devices become smaller, more devices can be attached to a single USB port, which can put a greater pressure on these vulnerabilities. The USB ports on your keyboard, scanners, and printers can be vulnerable to attacks from both computer and USB devices.
A USB scanner is similar to a USB keyboard with the exception that it connects to the USB port on the computer and therefore is not attached to a device. The scanner is not a full computer, it’s a device that can plug into a computer, and therefore it is less vulnerable.
Using PowerShell logging to suppress persistence in web applications.
Release Date: June 27, 2009.
This article demonstrates how to use PowerShell logging to suppress persistence in web applications. This allows the execution of custom policies to bypass Windows antimalware detection and is a feature that could be used in Windows as well as for Linux. However, while it may be useful for Windows applications, it is not intended for Linux, because it would require the execution of a non-portable.
Parsing of logs can be quite complex to some people. I’ve known people with very strong logs files that they will never understand. If I’m logging to a log, then I also have to parse the file. On a personal level, this can be difficult for someone who isn’t technically well-trained, but in a professional environment, this adds complexity to a lot of jobs.
Fortunately, Microsoft provides some great tools to help. These tools give you some basic functionality to manage the log files and to have the ability to set some basic user options. However, the actual solution when you are logging is still very much of a manual process.
Let’s take a look at what we’ll do, and then at how we can do it in PowerShell.
Microsoft Azure is a service that can store, process and then return some kind of information about an Azure resource. We can think of this as a storage account, but there is also a tool for logging. We can call this tool Azure PowerShell.
We can use some pretty powerful options here to provide some tools that we can use to read the logs from the storage account. We can also query this information for the logs that we want to look at.
Unfortunately, even with PowerShell being so powerful, there is still a bit of a barrier to entry for those people who don’t really understand how logs work. For example, a standard PowerShell execution will not return the results that you want, even though you have read the documentation for Get-AzureStorageLog.
Tips of the Day in Antivirus & Malware
The latest virus, ransomware and the latest malware are all part of a cycle. The good news is that we have tools to stop the cycle. By using these programs, you may be able to stop the malicious code before it goes around and doing bad things.
There are four types of malware threats to be aware of.
Malware: Malicious software, such as computer viruses or worms, installed onto your computer via a cyber attack. As more and more people visit the website of websites such as Yahoo!, Facebook and Google, the risk of being infected with malware is on.
Ransomware: Malicious software that encrypts files, such as Microsoft’s file-sharing program, Microsoft Windows, or the ransomware that encrypts your personal files. Because of the encryption, it is impossible to decrypt the file if you find it during the attack.
Worm: A highly destructive virus that is extremely difficult to stop. The worm, often known as ransomware, encrypts files before they can be accessed. The virus does not delete files when accessed, but leaves an entry in your system logfile as evidence that you have been infected.
