H.B.’s Security round-up 4-7-2019.
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  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
Pay particular attention to that one, as in the Safe Web screenshot generator, it revealed a fake Google Homepage.
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.
