Hurricanes are bad, MMMM kay?
Posted by Kurtis P on 31 October 2012 09:58 AM

 

As you're well aware, New York City was hit this week with flooding and damage due to Hurricane Sandy.

As you may or may not know, XTube - and our sister tube sites, rely quite heavily on a New York City-based datacenter where our servers are constantly converting videos for our websites. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, our datacenter has lost connectivity with the inetrnet. We've been successful in keeping most of our sites up - including XTube - but, at this time - new videos are not being converted after upload. You can still upload videos - they will just not be encoded until our NYC datacenter is back online, or we can get our computing resources replicated in another datacenter (or whichever comes first).

Thank you for understanding!

FBI/SOPA/CRTC 'Alerts', DorkBot Virus.
Posted by David Snodgrass on 26 October 2012 10:11 AM

We've had some reports of users experiencing a Virus/Malware attack from SOPA, FBI, CRTC while on Tube sites, File sharing sites, etc.  Through our research, We've found that there is a new Virus/Malware in the wild called 'DorkBot.A' which is based off of 3 known malware programs from last year: Win32.Bublik, Troj/Agent-YCW, Troj/Agent-YDC.

This campaign is run through file sharing and most primarily Skype not from iFrames/XSS or ads.

It’s the same gang that was behind the infamous Grum Botnet before it got shutdown earlier this year - They seem to be building a new network with this campaign. This new botnet hasn’t been named yet, but tt is estimated to contain around 2 million computers as of last week. They then use this botnet to launch geo-targeted ransom/scareware campaigns. It is all part of the MoneyPak campaign which have been running for the last two years. The proof that they are reusing the same code can be found in the list of decrypted strings packed inside of the trojan. Megaupload and Filesonic have been down for quite a while so they are pretty pointless.

This virus looks for strings contained in the url that you are currently visiting - Here is a selection:

  1. §  *youporn.*/login*

When a user browses an address that matches one of these strings, a locking mechanism is triggered, the virus updates itself and then the user is shown a full-screen window about an FBI warning, SOPA, etc.

The big problem is that currently only 16 out of 43 of the top anti-virus programs are currently detecting this virus (Up from 2/43 last week).

If you need some recommendations for antivirus, antimalware - or how to keep your java up to date, please contact us!
