Something evil on 178.63.195.128/26

The IP address range 178.63.195.128/26 nominally belongs to grey hat host Hetzner in Germany, although it has been reallocated to a registrant in Israel. This block recently came up as the source for a ZeroAccess infection picked up from 178.63.195.170.

A look at the 178.63.195.128/26 range (178.63.195.128 – 178.63.195.191) shows several suspicious websites with domains apparently generated by DoItQuick (more info here). Most of the domains are too new to have any reputation, although given the live distribution of malware and the randomly chosen names then they are unlikely to be doing anything nice.

Also, I notice that quite a lot of suspect sites have recently been moved from this range to point at 127.0.0.1 instead, a common trick when malcious domains needs to be pointed somewhere else quickly.

The registrant for this block is:
