  Unlike Flame and Stuxnet, ZeroAccess botnet is not that famous, but yes it may be even more harmful that the former two owing to the fact that it continues to infect over 9 million PCs.

   According to our observation and research, the botnet is not ran by the usually protocols of IRC and HTTP, ZeroAccess connects to a P2P botnet. The peer-to-peer protocol used by the latest version of ZeroAccess contains only a few commands and is designed to spread files and IP addresses across the network quickly. It is encrypted to avoid easy detection and there are a number of measures taken to avoid the network being poisoned or taken over.

  AegisLab already has Anti-Virus and IDP signatures to detect most of the instances and call-home behavior. We urge our customers to keep Anti-Virus and IDP signatures up to date.

    According to Fox-IT International blog, a new virus called "XDocCrypt/Dorifel" will search MS Word file on victim computer and encrypt it by RC4 (Figure 1). You will not decrypt the word file without RC4 key. But this virus doesn't look like a ransomware, because it doesn't show any message note. By now there are over 2,200 government, public sector, and networks of private companies of Netherlands affected (Figure 2).

    AegisLab discovered many "mail.htm" were trojanized by drive-by download attack with embedded <iframe>. By now, there are 311 victim websites and increasing.

If you connect to the victim website without HTTP referer, it will redirect you to Google website.

Victim #1: 


Victim #2: 


Victim #3:  


But with porper HTTP referer, you will be redirected to the following websites:

  • hxxp://online-cammunity.ru:8080/forum/w.php?f=182b5&e=2
  • hxxp://zenedin-zidane.ru:8080/forum/w.php?f=5e91c&e=4 
  • hxxp://spb-koalitia.ru:8080/forum/w.php?f=182b5&e=2
  • (and more...)
You can see the polymorphic URLs have the similar type: {hostname}.ru:8080/forum/w.php?f=...
"Onerussiaboard.ru", "online- cammunity.ru", "mysqlfordummys.ru" are no longer valid currently but the latest domain hxxp://spb-koalitia.ru:8080/forum/w.php?f=182b5&e=2 is still alive. As we know, Google Safe Browsing doesn't block it yet (see figure below)



Besides "mail.htm", we found many "upload.htm" are also trojanized due to the software packages they use are vulnerable.


The software packages that victim websites use listed as below:

  • hxxp://www.r-toto.com.cn/mail.htm -> Metinfo 4.0

    Last week, AegisLab found a strange domain name: hxxp://adobe-upgrade.org/w.php?f=28f52. Does it look like an official Adobe domain name ?! Actually it's not! It's registered by attacker in order to trick victim to download malicious program. After analyzing the program in depth, we found it's a fake AV. Once installed completely, it will show you the virus scaning page (Figure 1) and show how many files are infected in this computer. It's all fake but you will really get infected after the "scaning" finished :-)
