WannaMine cryptojacker targets unpatched EternalBlue flaw

New research detailed successful cryptojacking attacks by WannaMine malware after almost one year of warnings about this specific cryptominer and more than a year and a half  of warnings about the EternalBlue exploit.

The Cybereason Nocturnus research team and Amit Serper, head of security research for the Boston-based cybersecurity company, discovered a new outbreak of the WannaMine cryptojacker, which the researchers said gains access to computer systems “through an unpatched [Server Message Block, or SMB] service and gains code execution with high privileges” to spread to more systems.

Serper noted in a blog post that neither WannaMine nor the EternalBlue exploit are new, but they are still taking advantage of those unpatched SMB services, even though Microsoft patched against EternalBlue in March 2017.

“Until organizations patch and update their computers, they’ll continue to see attackers use these exploits for a simple reason: they lead to successful campaigns,” Serper wrote in the blog post. “Part of giving the defenders an advantage means making the attacker’s job more difficult by taking steps to boost an organization’s security. Patching vulnerabilities, especially the ones associated with EternalBlue, falls into this category.”

It is fair to say that any unpatched system with SMB exposed to the internet has been compromised repeatedly and is definitely infected with one or more forms of malware.
Jake Williamsfounder and CEO, Rendition Infosec

The EternalBlue exploit was famously part of the Shadow Brokers dump of National Security Agency cyberweapons in April 2017; less than one month later, the WannaCry ransomware was sweeping the globe and infecting unpatched systems. However, that was only the beginning for EternalBlue.

EternalBlue was added into other ransomware, like GandCrab, to help it spread faster. It was morphed into Petya. And there were constant warnings for IT to patch vulnerable systems.

WannaMine was first spotted in October 2017 by Panda Security. And in January 2018, Sophos warned users that WannaMine was still active and preying on unpatched systems. According to researchers at ESET, the EternalBlue exploit saw a spike in use in April 2018.

Jake Williams, founder and CEO of Rendition Infosec, based in Augusta, Ga., said there are many ways threat actors may use EternalBlue in attacks.

“It is fair to say that any unpatched system with SMB exposed to the internet has been compromised repeatedly and is definitely infected with one or more forms of malware,” Williams wrote via Twitter direct message. “Cryptojackers are certainly one risk for these systems. These systems don’t have much power for crypto-mining (most lack dedicated GPUs), but when compromised en-masse they can generate some profit for the attacker. More concerning in some cases are the use of these systems for malware command and control servers and launching points for other attacks.”

For Sale – Budget Gaming PC

Hi folks, after building this rig while a friend was around for a couple weeks, it’s now just collecting dust and doing not a lot other than watching Netflix. It’s a nice clean system (or will be before sent out) and has no issues. The specs are as follows.

-Corsair Spec-03 Gaming Case, there are some marks on the case and window due to this being stored for a while, otherwise it’s absolutely fine.
-AMD FX 4100 Quad Core @ 3.6Ghz
-Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler
-ASUS M5A78L-M LX3, this was purchased brand new from Amazon a few weeks back and supports up to the FX 8*** series
-4GB (2x2GB) Generic 1333Mhz RAM
-Sapphire HD 7850 2GB, still capable for 1080p medium gaming, performs about on average with my R9 270 that I use in my daily system and I can play most games with no real issues
-Antec 520w Neo Eco Power Supply, this is a semi modular I believe, however I never got any of the additional cables with it, you can buy these on ebay cheap enough if you need more PCI-e or SATA power
-500GB Seagate (pretty sure) 7200rpm hard drive, not much in the way of gaming performance, but performs okay as a boot drive, SSD’s are cheap enough these days
-ASUS DVD-RW Drive, nothing to shout about these days, but needed to back some stuff up to disk, so that’s in there

This is an ideal system for someone looking to buy their kids a cheap Fortnite machine, but it has no issues playing other, more premium games. I’ve attached a picture of a Heaven Benchmark on the High Preset @ 1080p to show it’s performance.

Everything works as it should, and this also has a genuine copy of Windows 10 on it which will be a fresh install.

Sorry for the messy pictures, moving things around and clearing out what I don’t need/want anymore. The PC will be cleaned off fully for postage/collection.

Looking for £170 posted on this, local collection is welcome of course (PE25 address).

Bank transfer only please as I don’t use PayPal, cash on collection is fine also.

Price and currency: £170
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: Bank Transfer
Location: Skegness

For Sale – Mid 2010 17-inch MacBook Pro 2.53 Intel Core i5 SSD

I have owned this since new and after 8 years, have finally retired it in favour of a new MacBook.

Full specs can be seen here MacBook Pro “Core i5″ 2.53 17″ Mid-2010 Specs (Mid-2010 17”, MC024LL/A, MacBookPro6,1, A1297, 2352*): EveryMac.com

Here are the following upgrades that i have done to this machine…

  • Upgraded RAM to 8GB
  • Replaced the 500gb hard drive for a 128gb SSD
  • Took out the DVD drive and put the original hard drive in its place. So boot drive is 12gb SSD and also has 500gb internal storage.
  • DVD drive is now in an external caddy

Charger still works fine, but the rubber on the cable is now very worn at the MagSafe end, still works but could possibly need replacing soon. Battery cycle count is 545, and is currently show “Service Battery” in the status bar, but it still chargers and runs off the battery, although, only for a couple of hours.

Any questions, just ask.

Thanks

Wanted – GTX 1070Ti & Intel i7-3770K

As title, I’m after a Geforce GTX 1070Ti

Thought I bought one on here already, but the seller decided to ignore my asking price offer and sell it to someone else instead and not even tell me until I found the archived thread..

So I still have the money set aside for a good GTX 1070Ti if you have one for sale. It must still be under warranty (preferably transferable to me), ideally less than a year old.

Not a noisy blower model either please as I’m trying to make my PC quieter than it is now…

Added a wanted ad for an Intel Core i7-3770K Ivybridge CPU..

Looking at extending the life of my system which currently has an i5-2500K CPU, if you have one lying around that you’ve upgraded from I’m definitely interested for the right price. Clearly must be fully working, and not overclocked too much!

Cheers..
