Fake News/Flash Player

Interesting email came in just:

I worry about you httx: // ho.bestbreakingfree.com/news.php

Here's the "news page" that you are taken too....

















Downloading the fake Player and running it through VirusTotal gives you this:
















VirusTotal

As you can see the 0-hour detection rates aren't that good (3/39 scanners) :(

I'm sure we'll see more of this.

A good way to cut down on costs.. or not

I received an email today, looks quite safe and perhaps needed in the current climate... cutting costs:






Clicking on the link, you are taken to a nice friendly looking coupon page to save money...















Ah... it's asking to download an exe file... best submit to virus total first....















VirusTotal Results shows it's not exactly going to save us money... but does give us something nasty... for free :(

13.01.09: News

Lots of changes have been made recently to the download scripts, so if you haven't
checked out the new versions recently, it might be worth taking a look in the usage page.

In other news, there is now a support forum available here and there is now a searchable mailing list available here

31.01.09: Update... aka Oops... forgot to update the main blog

20.01.09: News

It's been a while... but the Sanesecurity signatures have returned!

We disappeared for a while due a DDos, a small number of users who overloaded the shared hosting servers by downloading the signatures every second and in reality, an unscalable download system.

The old download system doesn't work any more and won't be coming back, so if you haven't done already, please disable your cron jobs and wget/curls downloads, as a new round-robin rsync based download url is available.

All the changes are detailed here.

There's also a Sanesecurity list, which is recommended that signature users subscribe to, so that any future problems can be reported directly to you:

Subscribe to Sanesecurity list, by sending an email to the address
in the below graphic, with a subject of: subscribe



There is an archive, so you can read previous messages here

Finally, thank you for all the support and feedback.

Update 18/01/09

Currently there is a great deal of work going on behind the scenes in getting the signatures back. This is the status so far:

* wget/curl etc. will no longer be used to download the signatures, we're moving to rsync. So please disable all downloads for the signatures, as they won't be coming back using the old urls.

* Signatures will now be signed using GnuPG, ensuring integrity of the signatures. The public key for these signature will be available from here.

For example, here's a good verify:

gpg --verify junk.ndb.sig
gpg: Signature made 01/09/09 09:55:48 using DSA key ID 31EA4D9E
gpg: Good signature from "Sanesecurity (Sanesecurity Signatures)"

Here's a bad verify:

gpg --verify junk.ndb.sig
gpg: Signature made 01/09/09 09:55:48 using DSA key ID 31EA4D9E
gpg: BAD signature from "Sanesecurity (Sanesecurity Signatures)"

* will be using round-robin dns system, to help spread the load over rsync servers.

* three new databases added: spear.ndb, spamimg.hdb and spam.ldb

* donation page, using PayPal will now also accept credit cards and hopefully will be able to provide and invoice for people who want one.

Hopefully, there will be more updates soon... so signup to the Sanesecurity list for more news.

Finally a Huuuuuuge thank you to everyone who has helped and offered help.
