Infected CCleaner downloads from official servers

Posted: September 18, 2017 by Pieter Arntz
In a supply chain attack that may be unprecedented in the number of downloads, servers hosting CCleaner, a popular tool for cleaning up the PC, has been delivering a version of the said software with malware.

What happened?

Threat actors have managed to change the files that were being delivered by Avast servers hosting CCleaner updates. In case you are wondering why they were on those servers, Avast acquired Piriform, the original publishers of CCleaner, a few months ago.

The incident was discovered and reported by Talos. Piriform is aware of the situation and is acting to prevent further damage. They are also investigating how the files coming from their servers were modified before being released to the public.

compromised version

Possible impact

It is difficult to say at this moment how many users might have been affected, but the numbers could be huge. From the statistics brought out by Piriform, CCleaner has been downloaded 2 billion times in total, 5 million times every week. The modified version, 5.33, is made available from August 15 until September 12 when version 5.34 was released. In a press statement the company estimates that 2.27 million people used the affected software.

The malware

The malware collects the following information about the infected system:

Computer name
A list of installed software, including Windows updates
A list of the currently running processes
The MAC addresses of the first three network adapters
Other system information that is relevant for the malware like admin privileges, whether it is a 64-bit system, etc.
The malware uses a hardcoded C2 server and a domain generating algorithm (DGA) as a backup, to send information about the affected system and fetch the final payload.

blocked IP

What to do if you think you are affected?

First of all, check the version of CCleaner on your system. If you suspect you may have downloaded CCleaner version 5.33.6162 or CCleaner Cloud version 1.07.3191, scan your system for malware.

Detection and Protection

 

CCleaner users that are running older versions or that do not trust the one they are using now are encouraged to update their CCleaner software to version 5.34 or higher. The latest version is available for download here.

Affected versions: CCleaner version 5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud version 1.07.3191

Malwarebytes blocks the IP and domains related to this malware. We also remove the malicious installer.

Stay safe!

Re: CCleaner and installing avast with out permission...

Guys,

I just had a chance to read this thread and I'm a bit horrified as I think that there's quite some misconception about what actually went on.

First of all, the bottom line is: to the best of our knowledge, no harm was done to any CCleaner users as the threat was removed before it had a chance to fully activate. 
This is really not about downplaying the issue. This is a statement based on a pretty thorough analysis, partially shared below and partially still embargoed because of the ongoing investigation.

Now, some facts:
- Avast acquired a company (Piriform) which was in the process of being hacked. We have good evidence that the attack started at least several weeks before the acquisition.
- Immediately after we first learned about something wrong with the CCleaner product (which was on September 12, i.e. 6 days ago) we started working on it and have been working on it around the clock since then.
- The #1 priority for us was to protect the CCleaner customers and minimize the actual customer impact of the incident.
- For that reason, we first focused on fully understanding the malicious code and disconnecting the bad actors from their ability to control the backdoor, i.e. taking down the CnC servers.
- The CnC server was taken down on September 15, three days after we first learned about the incident. Given how difficult these things tend to be, we consider this a very good result and I don't see how we could have done it any better. (By that time, the secondary CnC servers (the DGA domains) were already sinkholed as well, so that technically cut the attackers off their ability to control the backdoor).

At the same time, we wanted to understand whether the second stage payload could have already activated before the threat was discovered. Now, the good thing is that about 30% of CCleaner users also run Avast security software, which allowed us to analyze behavioral, traffic and file/registry data from those machines.  Based on this analysis, we can say with high confidence that to the best of our knowledge, the second stage payload never activated, i.e. the only malicious code present on customer machines was the one embedded in the ccleaner.exe binary itself. We also asked our colleagues from other security companies, but haven't heard anyone seeing anything suspicious either. And that's great news, as it means that despite the high sophistication of the attack, we managed to disarm the system before it was able to do any harm. To that end, we don't consider the advice to reformat and/or restore the affected machines to the pre-August 15 state to be based on facts (by similar logic, security companies are not usually advising customers to reformat their machines after a remote code execution vulnerability is identified on their computer, just because there was a hypothetical possibility that something might have gotten in). 

BTW, I have to say I was quite disappointed by the approach taken by the Cisco Talos team who appears to be trying to use information about this incident to drive marketing activities and piggyback on the case to increase the visibility of their upcoming product. And, I should probably also say that it wasn't Cisco who first notified us about the problem. The threat was first discovered and reported to us by researchers in a security company called Morphisec (thank you!). The threat was real, but to the best of our knowledge, it was fortunately mitigated before it could do any harm.

We plan to be issuing more communication about this as we go. This is a very unfortunate incident and of course, it's in our highest interest to properly investigate the issue and make sure it never happens again. Unfortunately, as you can imagine, the security measures in small companies are usually not up to the standard and that's a big lesson for us in terms of what to look for in case of future acquisitions.

Thanks,
Vlk

  'Catastrophic' Hurricane Maria now a Category FOUR and rapidly intensifying
Posted by: tarekma7 - 09-18-2017 , 11:33 PM - Forum: Off Topic Chat - No Replies

'Catastrophic' Hurricane Maria now a Category FOUR and rapidly intensifying as the storm targets Caribbean islands crushed by Irma

Quote:Hurricane Maria strengthened from a Category 1 storm to Category 4 on Monday
It's expected to make its first landfall tonight in the Leeward Islands
Forecasters say it could get even stronger and become a Category 5 as it enters the warm waters of the eastern Caribbean 
Many of the islands in Maria's path are just beginning to recover from the battering of Hurricane Irma
Puerto Rico is expected to take a direct hit, after losing power to most of the island due to a mere brush with Irma earlier this month 
It's still too early to tell if Maria poses any threat to the U.S. mainland

  Security Notification for CCleaner v5.33.6162/CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191(32-bit Window
Posted by: tarekma7 - 09-18-2017 , 02:01 PM - Forum: Security News - No Replies

Quote:We recently determined that older versions of our Piriform CCleaner v5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 had been compromised. We estimate that 2.27 million people used the affected software. We resolved this quickly and believe no harm was done to any of our users. This compromise only affected customers with the 32-bit version of the v5.33.6162 of CCleaner and the v1.07.3191 of CCleaner Cloud. No other Piriform or CCleaner products were affected. We encourage all users of the 32-bit version of CCleaner v5.33.6162 to download v5.34 here: download. We apologize and are taking extra measures to ensure this does not happen again.

Issue Summary: Our new parent company, the security company Avast, determined on the 12th of September that the 32-bit version of our CCleaner v5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 products, which may have been used by up to 3% of our users, had been compromised in a sophisticated manner. Piriform CCleaner v5.33.6162 was released on the 15th of August, and a regularly scheduled update to CCleaner, without compromised code, was released on the 12th of September. CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 was released on the 24th of August, and updated with a version without compromised code on September 15. The compromise could cause the transmission of non-sensitive data (computer name, IP address, list of installed software, list of active software, list of network adapters) to a 3rd party computer server in the USA. We have no indications that any other data has been sent to the server. Working with US law enforcement, we caused this server to be shut down on the 15th of September before any known harm was done. It would have been an impediment to the law enforcement agency’s investigation to have gone public with this before the server was disabled and we completed our initial assessment. Between the 12th and the 15th, we took immediate action to make sure that our Piriform CCleaner v5.33.6162 and CCleaner Cloud v1.07.3191 users were safe—we worked with download sites to remove CCleaner v5.33.6162, we pushed out a notification to update CCleaner users from v5.33.6162 to v5.34, we automatically updated CCleaner Cloud users from v1.07.3191 to 1.07.3214, and for users using Avast Antivirus, they received an automatic update.

Its rounded UI like LG G6 round corners, you’ll be able to modify the degree to which the app will round the corners of your screen.

Round up the squared corners with 40 superimpose curvy designs for your screens 4 corners.(allows specifying which corners to enable or disable)

Round Corners doesn’t require root and works on all devices running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and newer iterations of Google’s operating system

Furthermore, the Round Corners even allows you to set specific looks for individual apps so you can opt to minimize or even turn off its effect entirely when launching certain apps, and highlight it when using others. 

Naturally, it’s fair to say that Round Corners produces the best effect with round edges of screen for all apps on devices.

The Round Corners is lightweight app and shouldn’t leave a significant battery footprint. In fact, you may even save some battery life if you use Round Corners on a device with an AMOLED display panel that doesn’t light up black pixels, though any potential savings probably won’t be large enough for you to notice a difference in everyday use.

Steganos Privacy Suite 19

Many of the innovations and improvements have been incorporated into Steganos Privacy Suite 19, the complete data protection solution. The software - “made in Germany” - uses a digital safe and password management to offer comprehensive protection for data and private files. The clear menu guidance makes it easy for users to encrypt sensitive data on the home PC, on the network or in the Cloud at the push of a button. Automatic generation, entry and management of passwords and online accounts saves users all the effort, no matter whether they are using a computer, tablet or smartphone. In addition, all browser data and processes can be deleted with a click of the mouse. For Steganos Privacy Suite 19, data protection “made in Germany” means that no traces are left behind on devices and privacy is protected.

Create and manage strong passwords:

Convenient and secure, on PC and Smartphone

Do you leave your front door unlocked? Do you have the same key for your house, your car, and your office? Would you trust a complete stranger with your keys? Of course not!

Passwords are the keys to your digital life, and the variety and quality of your personal passwords is crucial for online security.
Trying to think up more and more passwords for your growing number of online accounts – and trying to remember them all – is virtually impossible.
With its highly secure encryption, Steganos Password Manager 19 provides a comfortable solution: it generates extremely strong passwords, automatically inserts them on websites, and remembers them so you don’t have to. You only have to remember one password!

Safely encrypt sensitive data:

On PC, in networks and in the Cloud

Confidential documents, business records and TAN lists all belong in a safe place. Steganos Safe 19 is a digital vault that protects everything you don’t want anyone else to see.

The clearly structured user interface ensures that this highly professional security software package is intuitive and very easy to use.
Data protection made in Germany – with the click of a button, Steganos Safe 19 protects all types of sensitive data on your PC, in networks, or in the cloud thanks to state-of-the-art 384-bit AES-XES encryption with AES-NI Hardware acceleration.
For over a decade, Steganos has been synonymous with reliable protection against data snoops and hackers. Since Steganos was founded, the encryption used in its software has never been cracked. There are no back doors, and Steganos stores no master passwords.

The Cloud that you trust:

Regardless on whether you would like to leave a security copy of your passwords in the cloud or to gain access to your passwords via your smartphone or tablet - the cloud has become part of everyday life, it is practical and finds more and more uses - now it is also secure.

Steganos Password Manager encrypts your passwords on your PC and only then transfers these into the cloud. This way no one other than yourself has access to the data. The new Steganos Password Manager 19 now offers support for a variety of cloud services including Dropbox, MagentaCLOUD, Google Drive an Microsoft OneDrive.

One program for five devices:

The new Steganos Privacy Suite 19 includes a household licence for five simultaneously-used Windows computers, and so is a practical choice for the professional protection needed for the whole family.

Extra Features:

PicPass:

A well chosen password is essential to protect data from unauthorized access. One problem: particularly the good, secure passwords can hardly be memorized - mnemonic tricks are hard to find for a combination of letters and numbers like 83&bspHße/.  Steganos PicPass is exactly what you need.
Instead of using a password, you can open your safe by clicking images in the right sequence.

Privacy: 

Use the Internet ad-free and without tracking by Facebook & Twitter.

Shredder:

Delete data on your PC completely and thoroughly thanks to military-standard file shredding.

Private Favorites:

Save browser bookmarks that contain sensitive content and access them directly through our browser plugins

Virtual keyboard:

You have the possibility to enter your password also via a virtual keyboard to protect yourself against keyloggers. 

To use the virtual keyboard, click on the keyboard icon right beside the password entry field. Then just click with the mouse on the according keys. Especially on external PCs it is recommended to use the virtual keyboard. 

Additional safety against mouse click recorders which record the click on the screen position offers the optional shuffle function. You can activate this mode in the settings: "Shuffle keys randomly each time the software is started".
