Sampling 419 Advance Fee Scams Activity - Part Two

Part two of the Sampling 419 Advance Fee Scams Activity series, once again aims to provide actionable real-time threat intelligence on a fraudulent segment that continues tricking hundreds of thousands of average Internet users into thinking that they have pending payments, have won the lottery, or someone is basically interested in doing multi-million dollar business with them.

The format of the data obtained over the past 24 hours, is return email plus the original IP of the sender, most of which can be geolocated to African countries.

A Diverse Portfolio of Fake Security Software - Part Twenty Five

Scarewere continues occupying the top spots for malicious monetization tactics courtesy of the cybercrime ecosystem. Disruption of this monetization chain can take place through multiple processes. For instance:
  • Share data with the affected ISP whose customers participate in the black hat SEO campaign
  • Target the payment processing gateways, or inform the legitimate one
  • Target the the redirector URLs of the campaign
  • Target the affiliate network itself
  • Target the "final output" in the form of scareware domains
In this we'll expose a portfolio of scaware domains, and will target the "final output" of the campaign, in between sharing data with community members. As always, what originally looks like a low profile campaign, always turns into a piece of puzzle from the massive blackhat SEO "picture".
