New Banking Trojan Hacks The FAQ To Fool Users

Cyber criminals are notoriously crafty and persistent, especially when it comes to defeating security measures created to thwart them. But a group behind a recent version of the Ramnit banking malware has raised their game to a new level: hacking the customer FAQ (frequently asked questions) document to make their malicious activity look like it was business-as-usual. A report on Tuesday by the security firm Trusteer finds that new variants of Ramnit targeting a UK bank  have added features to game a one-time-password (OTP) feature at the bank. Among other tricks, the Ramnit variant uses an HTML injection attack to alter the wording of the bank’s customer FAQ, making it seem as if prompts created by the malware were standard security features at the bank. The report, published on the Trusteer blog, described a complex ruse in which Ramnit lies dormant on infected machines, then springs to action once a […]

Botnet Of Embedded Devices Used To Map Internet

Botnets are mostly linked with spam e-mail campaigns, denial of service attacks and data theft. But global networks of compromised hosts can be used for a variety of ends – not all of them malicious. That was the idea behind “Internet Census 2012,” a stealth project by an unnamed and unknown researcher/hacker to map the entire IPV4 Internet address space using a massive network of compromised devices. The results, published in the form of a research paper, underscore the problem of  unsecured embedded devices, including set top boxes, home routers and critical infrastructure, with the hacker able to locate and compromise these systems, creating a botnet of more than 420,000 nodes. According to a copy of the report, the project grew out of an experiment to locate unprotected devices online using nmap, the open source scanning tool. By compromising each vulnerable host and then enlisting it to scan for other […]

New York Times Hack Puts Antivirus on Defensive

The big news this morning is the New York Times’ scoop on…well…itself. According to a report in today’s paper, the Times’s computer network was compromised for more than four months by attackers believed to be located in China. The attacks followed a Times exposé on the wealth accumulated by family members of China’s prime minister, Wen Jiabao – one of a series of reports in Western media outlets that raised questions about corruption and influence peddling in China’s ruling Communist Party. Attackers planted 45 pieces of information-stealing malware on Times systems, despite the presence of antivirus software from Symantec Corp. protecting those systems before, during and after the hack. The story is fueling debate about the value of anti-virus software and prompted Symantec to issue a statement defending its technology, but warning that signature-based antivirus is not enough to stop sophisticated attacks. According to the Times report, the attacks used compromised systems on […]

Tantalizing Clues in Dexter Malware Lead to Mystery Man…and Zeus

The Dexter malware is getting some media attention this week – and not just because the malware shares its name with Showtime’s popular drama about a serial killer by the same name. (Not that those of us tasked to write catchy headlines don’t love stuff like that – ’cause we do.) No, the Dexter virus caught the attention of malware analysts because it infects point of sale (POS) systems like electronic cash registers, kiosks and automatic teller machines (ATMs), rather than run of the mill laptops and desktops. It has also generated some interest because it uses a form of memory dump parsing to steal sensitive data from infected POS terminals, and because its POS malware that is part of a botnet – communicating back to a command and control system and receiving commands – that’s quite unusual and, while its kind of insider baseball for malware geeks, it makes […]

Web Attacks Target Foreign Exchange, Payment Processing Sites

A currency trading web site was compromised and used to serve malicious java applications to unwitting visitors, according to researchers at the security firm Websense- part of what might be a larger trend. Websense said in a blog post on Wednesday that the site, which is used by foreign currency traders, was infected with a malicious Java applet that, when installed, key logging and screen capture software. (@Tradingforexxx) is a Cyprus-based online trading web site. It allows individuals to trade on the global foreign exchange market (or Forex). Users can trade everything from foreign currencies to precious metals, commodities and other financial instruments. According to an investigation by Websense researcher Gianluca Giuliani, the site was pushing a back door program to visitors using a malicious Java plugin to exploit known Java vulnerabilities on the victims’ computers. Further investigation by Websense and Giuliani revealed that the malware being pushed […]

Schneier on Security

Clive Robinson • May 17, 2017 10:59 AM

I’ve had a little time to think on this and it’s one of those things that I find deeply suspicious because of the level of deniability that comes from it.

Firstly, yes due to the way PC’s are manufactured, nearly all buttons go through the key board (including the power button and wifi on/off switch etc).

Thus adding the volume control and mute buttons was a natural progression for manufacturers as was going to flash ROM and removing the wrote protect tab etc. Thus “efficiency -v- security” yet again.

Writing the key strokes to a file, is kind of what you expect from a test harness, and also something of use to technical support people. We saw this idea splat the news headlines big time several years ago with various US phone companies installing the CarrierIQ software that sent all the key strokes in plain text across the Internet for “Customer Support” reasons.

We should also know that the audio side of PC’s is probably the part least subject to change after all howmany of you still have AC97 compatable chips and drivers in your system? Realtek still holds the majority market place for OEM aidio and network chips thus you are quite likely to have a Taiwanese “Crab Inside” your laptop. Some of you may remember back in 2011 it was found that some one had “black bagged” their driver signing certificate.

Thus it’s clear that the backwater that many think the “audio” side of PC’s is anything but when it comes to opportunities for spyware, and that the opportunity to use it as such is not just there but very wide spread and importantly very stable/long lived for such backdoor code…

As for the log file it’s self, due to the way it changes and where it is, it’s a prime candidate for getting “backedup to cloud” across the Internet. Thus even if you have taken security steps like FDE you are thwarted in your attempts.

Avoiding cloud backup for most average users of Win10 etc is next to impossible, it’s the way Microsoft want it to be, along with telemetry and forced OS upgrades. The fact that such a file becomes in effect a business record of a third party supplier means that it only takes a letter or less for this data to be aquired by various LEO or IC agencies in quite a few jurisdictions.

So all the steps of an exfiltrating keyboard logger are there, and they all appear to have deniability, which in of it’s self is odd. You would expect atleast one step not to have deniability if it was all accidental…

So whilst I can not say it’s a deliberate keylogger it’s got more smoking guns than the OK Corral…

And that’s before you look into the backgrounds of the companies involved, and their relationships to the US IC etc.

This built-in keylogger in Mantistek GK2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard was noticed by a few owners who headed on to an online forum to share this issue.

According to Tom’s Hardware, MantisTek keyboards utilise ‘Cloud Driver’ software, maybe for collecting analytic information, but has been caught sending sensitive information to servers tied to Alibaba.

After analysing more closely, Tom’s Hardware team found that Mantistek keyboard does not include a full-fledged keylogger. Instead, it captures how many times a key has been pressed and sending this data back to online servers.

The affected users also provided a screenshot showing how all your plain-text keystrokes collected by the keyboard are being uploaded to a Chinese server located at IP address:

However, even if there’s no malicious intent, capturing and uploading keystroke counts without users’ consent violates trust and puts systems’ security at risk by leaking sensitive information.

Since Alibaba Group also sells cloud services like Google and Amazon, this collected information is not necessarily being sent to the Alibaba itself, but someone who is using its cloud service.

Opening the IP address in question directly into a web browser and on a Chinese login page, which translates to “Cloud mouse platform background management system” and is maintained by Shenzhen Cytec Technology Co., Ltd.

Reportedly, the MantisTek keyboard’s software sends the collected data to two destinations at that IP address:
  • /cms/json/putkeyusedata.php
  • /cms/json/putuserevent.php

The best way to prevent your keyboard from sending your keystrokes to the Alibaba server is to stop using your Mantistek GK2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard until you hear back from the company about this issue.

If you cannot prevent yourself from using the keyboard, but want to stop it from sending your key presses to the Alibaba server, just make sure the MantisTek Cloud Driver software is not running in the background, and block the CMS.exe executable in your firewall.

To block the CMS.exe executable, add a new firewall rule for the MantisTek Cloud Driver in the “Windows Defender Firewall With Advanced Security.”
