Fake Facebook DDoS Malware – Actually a password stealer
Last month security researchers discovered Facebook password stealer malware with njRat. This month we got another malware which claims that it can target a given profile and perform DDoS. But it actually a password stealer and it targets the Turkish users.
Static Analysis of the sample (code analysis)
File Type: 32-Bit ExeSize: 845824 Byte(s)

The malware is compiled using .Net and we started to work on the strings and code analysis of this sample. When we looked in to the strings, we found very interesting details:

File description, resource details and email credentials (highlighted in red colours) are found inside the sample. Using this credential, we tried to login and stop the victim. But Gmail stops to verify that device isn’t recognise. It probably place holder account for hacker.

‘Kapatma’ is a Turkish word and it means ‘close down’. The above image is the detail of the classes found in the code. Inside the code we find input details as in the checkbox and label.
The purpose is to collect the Facebook credentials to login in the tool and mentioned url will be the profile to be attacked. Let see how the collected details will be transferred.
The above code snippet shows that the collected credentials are send us email by login to the given gmail account and sent the detail to same account (i.e.) from and to address are same email address only.
Figure 5 GUI of the fake tool
We entered random text inside the text box, selected all the boxes. Once we clicked the button, message box appears as login successful account will be closed in 5 minutes.

No any file traces and registry traces are added after the execution of this malware.
We are seeing this emerging trend as Facebook hacking tools and DDoS tools which actually steals the tool user credentials and not the given target. It is high time to educate the user that these tools are fake tools - password stealer and not a hack tool or crack tool. In this case, it targets Turkish people and we may expect these kind of tools to other part of the world.
