U.K users targeted with fake ‘Confirming your Sky offer’ malware serving emails

British users, watch what you execute on your PCs! Over the last week, cybercriminals have launched several consecutive malicious spam campaigns targeting users of Sky, as well as owners of Samsung Galaxy devices, into thinking that they’ve received a legitimate MMS notification to their email address. In reality though, these campaigns ‘phone back’ to the same command and control botnet server, indicating that they’re related.

Sample screenshot of the spamvertised attachment:

Detection rate for the Sky themed sample: MD5: d880cd5e3fe803c17f4208552ec22698 – detected by 27 out of 48 antivirus scanners as Trojan.Win32.Sharik.qgi

Detection rate for the Samsung Galaxy themed fake MMS sample: MD5: d08c957a004becd0a2404db99d334484 – detected by 24 out of 47 antivirus scanners as Trojan.Win32.Sharik.qgd; VirTool:Win32/CeeInject.gen!KK

Once executed, both samples phone back to a known C&C – networksecurityx.hopto.org.
