Why exfil your payload via ASCII? A picture is worth…

July 6, 2020 Leave a comment

Malwarebytes has discovered a new type of skimming attack where the booty is sent via an image!

The attackers hides the credit card skimmers in the metadata of icon files and then sends the sensitive info after the attack is successful, to the C2 via an image.

Talk about the need for ‘copy protection’?

As if hiding JavaScript in the copyright tag of the ico file isn’t ingenuous enough, they capture input field data, obfuscate it and place it in a image file to be uploaded so your Siem doesn’t even see it?

They have shared the details in a blog post if you want to learn more.

Thinking of rooting your Android…think again

June 30, 2020 Leave a comment

While many of us have been home, wondering if this virus will go away as quickly as it came upon us, Google has been silently preparing for ‘Round 2’ in the phone wars.

SafetyNet is Android’s third party attestation API and if you want to install legit software from the Google Play Store, you already have it.

Getting ready to route out the last of the modified bootloaders, they have now rolled out a hardware backed detection method to ensure application developers can tell if your device is rooted. This allows high risk vendors like your banking app to prevent the application from running to help curb fraud. Read more about it here.
