Perceptual Ad Blocker blocks ads by graphic elements, not by code

A few guys from Princeton and Stanford universities have worked together and create Perceptual Ad Blocker, a different piece of adblocking software, that detects ads by the graphical elements, the content dimensions and the sponsored words. The software does not hide the ads completely, but covers them and displays the “This is an ad” text.

As you may know, the classical adblocking software analyzes the source code of pages to identify the ads, while Perceptual Ad blocker does things in a different way. It has been initially released to block the annoying Facebook Ads, after the website has started to integrate the ads in the content better and better, and the classical ad blockers could not block them.

Another good thing about Perceptual Adblock is that it is not discovered by the websites, being an ideal solution for that kind of websites that do not offer the content if you do not whitelist them in your adblocker. It has been tested on 50 websites that usually detect adblockers, but it has been invisible.

For now, Perceptual Ad Blocker is just a proof of concept, available only for Google Chrome, as an extension. For more information, see this thread on the MMO-Champion forum.

Erebus Malware – web Hosting Provider paid 1 million dollars to ransomware attacker

The South Korean web hosting provider Nayana agreed to pay the 1 million dollars ransomware in Bitcoin, after 153 Linux servers were infected with Erebus malware on the 10th of June.

After the attack, over 3400 business websites the company hosted were encrypted. According to the initial Nayana’s announcement, the attacker has requested 550 Bitcoins (1,62 million dollars). After the company negociated with the attacker, the ransomware demanded was 397.6 Bitcoins (around 1 million dollars).

As Trend Micro reveals, the ransomware used in this attack was Erebus. Erebus is a piece of malware that was initially spotted in September 2016 on Windows operating systems. Looks like someone has ported the ransomware to Linux. The ransomware is used to target vulnerable servers.

Nayana’s website was running on Linux kernel 2.6.24.2, a kernel compiled back in 2008. Additionally, Nayana’s website uses Apache version 1.3.36 and PHP version 5.1.4, both of wich were released back in 2006. Samples of the ransomware were submitted to VirusTotal also from Ukraine and Romania.

Details about Erebus Malware

The malware uses the RSA algorithm to encrypt AES keys and each infected file is encrypted with a unique AES key. However, the RSA-2048 public key is shared. The ransomware targets Office documents, databases, archives and multimedia files, being able to encrypt a total of 433 file types. But the malware was build specifically to target and encrypt web servers and data stored in them.

erebus malware - ransomware note

So, the only safe way of dealing with ransomware attacks is prevention. As we have previously recommended, the best defense against Ransomware is to create awareness within the organizations, as well as to maintain back-ups that are rotated regularly.

Most viruses are introduced by opening infected attachments or clicking on links to malware usually in spam emails. So, DO NOT CLICK on links provided in emails and attachments from unknown sources.

Security solutions and antivirus software

Kaspersky VirusDesk

Today we’re presenting Kaspersky VirusDesk, a free service developed by the Russian security firm. The service allows you to scan files or links for viruses or other threats.

Some of you might agree into having a resident antivirus solution installed. Especially on Windows operating systems, since they are more vulnerable to attacks like WannaCry etc. That doesn’t mean that online file scanners are not good as a second opinion regarding a file or link. Most of the online scanners have integrated multiple antivirus engines, an even better estimation of a file’s threat level.

Kaspersky VirusDesk description

Kaspersky VirusDesk

The two main functions of Kaspersky VirusDesk are:

  • scanning of one or multiple files (included archives)
  • the option to look up of the reputation of links

The status of threats are either safe, infected or suspicious.

  • if Kaspersky detects no threats, then the link or file(s) are Safe.
  • a file or link “may pose a threat in some cases”, then the Suspicious status may appear.
  • the link or file is marked as Infected if a threat has been identified.

You can drag and drop files directly into the web page, or use the attachment icon to use a file browser to load one. The scan uses the exact same engine as Kaspersky Antivirus solution for Windows. Another interesting feature of Kaspersky VirusDesk is the option to “disagree with the scan”. This might come handy for software developers who had their program identified as a threat by the online scanner. That way they can submit the file using the disagree option, leaving the Kaspersky Security Labs to analize it further.

If you want to scan multiple files, a better way to do that is to put them all into a password protected zip file.

There’s a downside though, since the maximum file size is limited to 50 MB. If by any chance you have a bigger file to scan, please use VirusTotal scanner, since it supports a 128 MB file size.

Conclusions about Kaspersky VirusDesk

The service is let down somewhat by the relatively low maximum file size it supports. Webmasters and software developers on the other hand may find it useful to deal with false positives that Kaspersky may identify in sites or programs. Use it wisely!
