Uniden commercial site compromised to distribute Emotet trojan

  • The official website of Uniden has been compromised to host an MS Word document that delivers a variant of the Emotet trojan known as Geodo and Heodo.
  • The malicious Word document is capable of delivering three JavaScript payloads and all three payloads have signatures for Geodo.

What is the issue – abuse.ch’s URLhaus project uncovered that the official website of Uniden has been compromised to host a MS Word document that delivers a variant of the Emotet trojan known as Geodo and Heodo.

“i feel like it would have been bigger news that Uniden, a kinda major company, maker of electronic products like radio transceivers and stuff… their website has been serving malware all day long. commercial.uniden[.]com/wp-admin/legale/Nachprufung/042019/,” JTHL tweeted.

The big picture

  • The malicious Word document is capable of delivering three JavaScript payloads and all three payloads have signatures for Geodo.

Worth noting

  • All three of payloads are currently detected by 26 antivirus engines on VirusTotal.

What is Firewall? A Firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an organization's previously established security policies. At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.

 

Secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, Viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojans, Adware, Keyloggers, Malicious Mobile Code (MMC), and other dangerous applications for total protection in a convenient, affordable subscription-based service. Modern threats like web-based malware attacks, targeted attacks, application-layer attacks, and more have had a significantly negative effect on the threat landscape. In fact, more than 80% of all new malware and intrusion attempts are exploiting weaknesses in applications, as opposed to weaknesses in networking components and services. Stateful firewalls with simple packet filtering capabilities were efficient blocking unwanted applications as most applications met the port-protocol expectations. Administrators could promptly prevent an unsafe application from being accessed by users by blocking the associated ports and protocols.
