H.B.’s Security round-up 4-7-2019.

Hello all,

In a recent attempt to obtain a rare music track, i found myself on wapbomDOTclub.  Norton Safe Web has no intel on it: https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=wapbom.club (which i don’t particularly care for) setting that aside, the site seemed safe, however, downloading an mp3 file yielded a browser window from pushnoDOTcom, which, according to Malwarebytes’ Premium was very malicious.  The following window was displayed by MBAM (i had never seen this before only tray notifications):

Not sure why it says 'Trial' i have had the full program for a number of years, but, at this point, that was the least of the problems...  And, upon further examination of the MBAM logs, pushno attempted attacks on my PC twenty-two [22] times and had attacked multiple ports.  Please also note, Norton was silent during all of this.  This might be a domain that Symantec wants to get up-to-speed with and quick.  Full disclosure on this available here: https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=pushno.com  In the screenshot generator, looks to be a fake Google Homepage?  Just noticing that, from my initial write-up. 

During my searching, some others where Safe Web has intel lapses: dolohenDOTcom  https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=dolohen.com 

https://safeweb.norton.com/reviews/353384 

Pay particular attention to that one, as in the Safe Web screenshot generator, it revealed a fake Google Homepage. 

SaveofflineDOTcom  https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=saveoffline.com

ShokanDOTnet  https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=shokan.net

In other news....

Came across lengthy Korean spam post over on CrunchyRoll highlighting: Kak778.com which Norton Safe Web has no intel on: https://safeweb.norton.com/report/show_mobile?name=kak778.com

Lastly, the following STEAM game was flagged by Norton 360 evidenced here:  https://store.steampowered.com/app/492080/Vision_of_Aurora_Borealis/  Norton specifically found:

As well as:

Believing these to be false positives, i made exemptions for the game and actually ran it.  I don’t believe it adversely affected my system.  I guess what is troubling is, some STEAM games that i download (and i’ve downloaded close to a hundred of them) will not be flagged, yet, some will….  Makes you wonder sometimes….

If we could get COPS to look more into some of this would be greatly appreciated. 

I know it has been some time, but, hoping that this post finds everyone well. 

Sincerely,

H.B.

Adware mainly and Malwarebytes is trying to drum up business by flagging most everything. Really annoying anymore.

Hello H B

I'll try to get the Safe Web Team to go after these sites. You have quite a bit listed here. I will see if I can get him to post some each day. I don't want them scared off by having so many in one post.

Please stay tuned for some results although none of these have not been verified.. I'll see what I can do.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Kuster explains,

"Malwarebytes is trying to drum up business by flagging most everything. Really annoying anymore."

Problem is, i traverse many sites and MBAM doesn't necessarily engage, so, if it does, i'm going to be paying close attention. 

Flo explains,

"so many in one post..."

C'mon!  This wasn't nearly as ambitious as my last endeavour: https://community.norton.com/en/forums/more-areas-where-norton-should-conduct-further-research

Hello H B

If the Safe Web Team decides to do all the sites before posting back here, they might not post back for a few days.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.

Re: H.B.’s Security round-up 4-7-2019.

So, now, Safe Web has determined that "Dolohen" is safe:

Meanwhile, back at the Batcave:   

And, i'm going to have to stand by this, because, Google is not necessarily in the security game, so, if they are even finding Dolohen unsafe, you better watch out.

"Wasn't looking good, Patrick."

Although, GSB is good enough for me...
