BBB Spam / curcandle.net

21
Dec
2011

Yet more BBB themed malware spam this morning, bouncing through a couple of hacked servers to a malicious payload on curcandle.net (174.136.1.223, Colo4Dallas). Blocking access to the IP will also block any other evil domains on the same server.

The payload is on curcandle.net/main.php?page=111d937ec38dd17e although right at the moment it is 404ing. However, the spam run is just 30 minutes old so perhaps it is still under construction.

Some samples:
