Dridex Redirecting to Malicious Dropbox Hosted File Via Google, (Tue, Apr 21st)

2015-04-21 22:30

Thanks to Wayne for sending us in the latest Dridex sample. He observed them arriving this morning around 8am ET. According to Wayne, this malware may use Google Analytics to count how many people opened the file, but I havent confirmed that. Google redirects are however used to obscure the destination.

Checking my own inbox, I found a couple of the messages in my spam folder. Here is an example I received:

The link is kind of interesting. It leads to Google, but Google will redirect you to the malicious file which is hosted on dropbox. At least the file above was still available.

The link:

hxxps://www.google.com/url? q=https://www.dropbox.com/s/ 0c5we7id7mgwk89/ACH transaction0336.doc?dl=1 sa=Dsntz=1usg=AFQjCNFvX9uqV7uVjP8NWYKa4xkImgXPBA

Google will show a note that the user was redirected, but the file will download right away. It will not open, and the user will have to open it an enable the Macro to execute.

Hashes of the Word document:


And a quick review with fellow handler Didiersoledumptool shows indeed a number of suspect macros.
