2. Malicious files related Christmas

During this Christmas, MS Word exploit, Christmas program, and PDF exploits have been reported.


This e-mail seemed to be related Tibet, and it contains attachment which name is "THIS XMAS SAY NO TO MADE IN CHINA.doc".
It is malicious and installs malicious file secretly.

This e-mail is expected to spread malicious files to multiple countries.
And the recipients are including Indian, Nepalese, Switzerland's, Japanese, Canadian, French, Russian; therefore, attacker seemed to attack Tibet related users.

If user executed attachment, it will create normal document file and shows to user, then it will create another malicious file and execute.
Let's see the document.

Those files including wordupgrade.exe will be created in Temp folder and executed, and it hides itself with using batch command.

Upon executed malicious "wordupgrade.exe", it will install additional malicious file disguised as internet service function, then "wordupgrade.exe" will be deleted itself by batch file command.

C:\Program Files\Online Services\Internet Services.exe

Executing "Internet Services.exe" will create other malicious files, which will also be deleted by its batch file command.

And then, it accesses to certain host and waits for additional commend. When remote control connection is established, Backdoor can work and victim's PC can be in danger.

* Case 2 - Malicious file disguised as Christmas decoration program

Christmas tree desktop program can be seen in right bottom of desktop.

This freeware can be downloaded on http://get-xmas.com/, malicious file distributor injected malicious code and repackaged.

Malicious file uses WinRAR SFX(Self-extracting), and it contains various malicious files including normal mas.exe.

Once executed, it will create "udp.exe, taskngr.exe, drv.cmd, mas.exe, spoolcv.exe, svghost.exe" on system folder, and it can update additional malicious file on accesses certain domain.

Especially, disguised as install_flash_player.exe is the biggest feature of this file, and it adopted WinRAR SFX as similar as the program above.

This malicious file can download additional malicious file disguised as flash player.

* Case 3 - Malicious file using PDF exploit

Merry Christmas.pdf uses Adobe Reader program's vulnerability and installs secretly.

When malicious PDF file is executed, it is disguised as a normal file with showing normal document.
And it installs malicious gupdater.exe on Application Data folder with using updates.js, Winword.js coded by Embedded JavaScript

    Tip 1: Run-on sentence
    A run-on sentence consists of two complete sentences separated by a comma. This is not the same as other long sentences. You need to use a conjunction to fix a run-on sentence. You can have a word with online paper editing editors to understand the concept of run-on sentences even better.
    Wrong: Practise gets over at 5 pm, you need to pick up Clara in time.
    Right: Practise gets over at 5 pm, so you need to pick up Clara in time.
    You can also use a semi-colon or a period to complete the two sentences. You may take time to implement the changes. Until then, opt for online instant assignment help to make the changes for you.
    Tip 2: Bad pronoun usage
    Pronouns are wonderful little words that make writing and speaking easier. They replace nouns to make the writing look and sound simpler. Here is a terrible usage of pronoun that most of the students make:
    Everybody must bring their own tiffin.
    ‘Their’ is a pronoun, but it is not appropriate for this sentence. His/her would have been perfect since it agrees with ‘everybody.’
    Tip 3: Subject-verb disagreements
    Many students type ‘edit my essay’ on Google because they assume editing is a time-consuming process. Well, it isn’t, if you know the right techniques. Errors in the subject-verb agreement are quite common among students. Keep a single rule in mind, and you can take care of it easily.
    A singular subject needs a singular verb. A plural subject requires a plural verb.
    Still confusing? Don't freak out, yet. Check out these examples to Programming help you understand better.
    Example 1
    Wrong: There’s some wonderful books being published this week.
    Right: There are some wonderful books being published this week.
    Example 2
    Wrong: Here’s guidelines to work on grammar errors.
    Right: Here are guidelines to work on grammar errors.
    Tip 4: Dangling modifiers
    If you use Grammarly, then you must be familiar with this term. A Dangling modifier is a word that does not relate logically and clearly to the word it modifies. The sentence with a dangling modifier seems abrupt to your professors, and they will deduct marks without a second thought. Now you can eliminate these errors from your accounting homework help in no time. Here is an example of dangling modifiers:
    Incorrect: Having finished the essay, the TV was turned on.
    Correct: Having finished the essay, Jill turned on the TV.
    ‘Who turned on the TV?’ The first sentence doesn’t indicate the doer of the action. But, the second sentence clearly states that ‘Jill’ has turned on the TV.
    These are the most common mistakes students make in their English papers. Revise your paper thoroughly to keep a check on these flaws. Hopefully, nothing can stop you from getting good marks in the paper.
