Stegano Exploit Kit hiding malicious code in ad-pictures

Millions of readers who visited popular news websites have been targeted by a series of malicious ads redirecting to the Stegano exploit kit exploiting several Flash vulnerabilities (and it's known that Flash has many of those...). Since at least the beginning of October, users might have encountered ads promoting fake applications calling themselves “Browser Defence” and “Broxu” using banners similar to the ones below:

1-xlch3.png
2-y0vbp.png


These advertisement banners were stored on a remote domain with the URL hxxps://browser-defence.com and hxxps://broxu.com.
Without requiring any user interaction, the initial script reports information about the victim’s machine to the attacker’s remote server. Based on server-side logic, the target is then served either a clean image or its almost imperceptibly modified malicious evil twin.
The malicious version of the graphic has a script encoded in its alpha channel – an additional image channel (e.g. extending an RGB image) or standalone channel, which defines the transparency of each pixel. Since the modification is minor, the final picture’s color tone is only slightly different to that of the clean version. It would look like this, for example:

3-gxrp4.png
4-nejsb-1.png


The seemingly harmless ad contains JavaScript-Code, which scans the alpha channel of the picture, converts the hidden information into letters and then combines and turns them into JavaScript-Code yet again. Stegano executes said code to abuse a security breach in the device's system – for example in the Flash-Plug-in – to completely infect the system.
But not only that; during the whole process, Stegano checks multiple times if it's getting detected – in such a case, it will merely show a harmless ad-picture and immediately stop the exploit entirely.

If the script does not detect any signs of monitoring, it redirects to the Stegano exploit kit’s landing page, via the TinyURL service. The landing page loads a Flash file that is able to exploit three different vulnerabilities (CVE-2015-8651, CVE-2016-1019, CVE-2016-4117), depending on the version of Flash found on the victim’s system.

5-tgssh-912x1024.png


Upon successful exploitation, the executed shell code collects information on installed security products and performs – as paranoid as the cybercriminals behind this attack – yet another check to verify that it is not being monitored. If results are favorable, it will attempt to download the encrypted payload from the same server again, disguised as a gif image.
The payload is then decrypted and launched via regsvr32.exe or rundll32.exe. Payloads detected so far include backdoors, banking trojans, spyware, file stealers and various trojan downloaders.


You can only protect yourself from these kind of attacks, if you always keep an eye on updating to the latest versions of your operation system, browser and add-ons. Exploit kits nearly always make use of known security breaches, to infect systems ... and achieve with that concept terrifyingly high success rates.

Baby dinosaur tail found preserved in amber, complete with feathers

[video=youtube;gbpJPwikMXA]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbpJPwikMXA[/video]​

It took years for paleontologists to come to terms with the fact that dinosaurs had feathers. We started with “Dinosaurs were like big scaly lizards”, progressed to “Dinosaurs probably had feathers”, and now we’re arrived at “Here are some actual dinosaur feathers”. A piece of amber discovered at a market in Myanmar has been confirmed to contain a baby dinosaur tail, which is covered with dense feathers.

Amber is fossilized tree sap, which can preserve biological material and even entire small animals that became trapped in it in the distant past. You might be most familiar with amber from its role in Jurassic Park. That’s where they get the blood-filled mosquitoes containing dinosaur DNA. This particular piece of real amber was discovered by Lida Xing, a paleontologist from the China University of Geosciences in Beijing. He didn’t have to go digging in the ground for it, though. He just bought it from a merchant.

During a 2015 trip to Myanmar, a salesman brought out the amber to show Xing. There are several ancient ants trapped inside, as well as some unidentified debris. The merchant claimed the large, wispy tube was a plant, but Xing instantly knew that wasn’t right. After closer examination of the amber, a report has been published in the journal Current Biology confirming the amber contains the tail of a baby dinosaur complete with feathers.

SUMMARY:

"TRENCH WARFARE WITH AN INTENSITY NOT SEEN IN THE FPS GENRE FOR YEARS"

Verdun, one of the most brutal wars in the history of mankind, yielded an estimated 700k casualties between the German and French armies. Historically it stands as one of the major hallmarks of warfare and changed the global landscape for all future wars to come. With the gaming market so heavily saturated in futuristic FPS games that were overloaded with gimmicks and failed attempts at innovating a solid gaming experience, dutch indie developers M2H Game Studio and Blackmill Games felt it was time to execute a fresh FPS experience, using a powerful moment in history as their launching pad.

Get your bayonets oiled and your gas masks equipped - we are going to war in 1916!

----------

THE GAMEPLAY EXPERIENCE:

From the moment you boot the game up, you feel the strength of the think tank sessions the developers had while creating this game. They clearly know the magic days of some of the classic FPS games from the past. The interface is clean and easy to navigate, the party system smooth and effective, and the in-game mechanics solid and refreshing. FPS rates are spot on, moving through the environment is fluid and responsive, and the competitive nature of the game makes it easy to learn but tough to master.
With casual games modes like Rifle Deathmatch to equalize with the brutal competitive and powerfully original "Frontlines" game mode, you will always have a satisfying way to get your bolt action rifle action on in the manner you choose. The dedicated playerbase are die hard and passionate, and the developers - who I personally know and have collaborated and organized tournaments for - are always listening to the community and always looking to further polish and maintain the game's spirit. The game stands tall among the AAA FPS giants that we all know.

Now get in the battle! CHAAAAAARGE!


----------

STRONG POINTS OF THE GAME:

- Excellent FPS fundamentals that take you back to the classic bolt action rifle days.
- Clean interface & easy to navigate HUD.
- Strong player base with plenty of activity on the servers.

----------

WEAK POINTS OF THE GAME:

- The competitive player base can be overly salty & negative.
- With a game development company much smaller in size, content is implemented over a longer period of time.
- The centerpiece game mode "Frontlines" is amazing but difficult for new players to learn.
