'Nightclub bouncer' phishing scam found by researchers

If your name's not down... you are not getting phished by the criminals behind this attack.

Cyber-criminals have invented a cunning new method of targeting victims by developing a system that behaves like a bouncer at an exclusive nightclub.

Security firm RSA revealed how attackers assigned targets with a unique ID, meaning the scam could be aimed at specific people.

If a person's ID was not on the list, their computer would not be affected.

RSA said the advanced threat posed a new "detection challenge" to the security industry.

In a blog post, RSA cybercrime specialist Limor Kessem wrote: "As we adapt and improve our detection systems, we are reminded that in the never-ending cat-and-mouse game, only the nimble will survive."

The so-called Bouncer Phishing Kit targets preset lists of email addresses. For each target, a unique ID is automatically generated, creating a unique web address for the user to click on.

If someone has an ID that does not match the list of intended targets, they will simply be presented with a 404 Error page, and will be unharmed.

If, however, a person is one of the unfortunate ones, the same page will instead spring into life as an "attack page" ready to steal user credentials.

Using this method means attackers can harvest data from certain groups of users, rather than having to sift through large amounts of data.

For example, the Bouncer Phishing Kit could be used to gather personal details on people in one particular country.

"It holds this [bouncer] moniker because much like many high-profile night-time hotspots - if your name is not on the list, you're staying out," Mr Kessem said.

"Traditional phishers like to cast as wide of a net as possible.

"But with this tactic the phisher is laser-focusing the campaign in an effort to collect only the most pertinent credentials for his purposes.

"Keeping out uninvited guests also means avoiding security companies and prompt take-downs of such attacks."

Phishing is a growing problem for internet users. According to RSA's data, attacks of this type were up 59% in 2012 compared with the previous year, and cost the global economy $1.5bn (£940m).


What is phishing?
Phishing is a tactic used by cybercriminals to trick users into sharing personal data.

Typically, this is by pretending to be a legitimate website - such as as popular social network, or online banking. Assuming they are on the real site, users will enter their username and password, only for them then to be stolen.

Other phishing attacks can make use of emails designed to look like they come from a trustworthy source.

Internet users can take several common-sense steps to prevent being caught out, such as double-checking web addresses look legitimate, rather than a misspelling such as Facebok.com.

Using the latest version of your internet browser, as well as up-to-date security software, will give you extra help.

The UK Payment Council has set up a website with advice on how to stay protected from phishing scams.

FROM TERI HINKLE:

EXTREME CAUTION, BANKSTER ALERT!

Today a friend called to say that when his wife went down to their bank, Nashville Bank in Tenn. to renew the equity line of credit on their home she came home and told him to go up to the bank and sign the papers. His name has never been on the loan so he went to the bank to straighten everything out. When he got there and he was given the papers his wife had signed he found that on the bottom of every page in BOLD type it said that:

BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT YOU WAIVE YOUR RIGHT TO A JURY TRIAL IN REGARD TO ANY AND ALL EVENTS AND OR CLAIMS WHICH MAY ARISE FROM IT

Fortunately my friend is far to savvy to have fallen for that. He threw a fit and demanded the bank explain what they thought they were trying to pull. The loan officer called the main branch and then said, well we could take that off of there....( DUH! )

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES SIGN ANY DOCUMENT WITH EVEN SIMILAR LANGUAGE TO THAT ON IT. By signing that agreement they would have been waiving all their rights to due process under the law and our Constitution. If the smaller banks like Nashville Bank are attempting this kind of entrapment you can bet the BIG BANKS LED THE WAY!

If you have inadvertently signed such a document in the last three days get your butt back down to the bank and exercise your three day right to rescission!

This is unconscionable and cannot be tolerated. If the fraudster banks can get you to renew your loans and or mortgages with language like that in the documents they have carte blanche ability to STEAL EVERYTHING YOU HAVE and you have NO POWER TO STOP THEM AND NO RECOURSE AFTERWARD!

Dang, Z, I think we all have basically empty bank accounts these days  :o

but I wouldn't even want to play with this turkey unless I had a false account set up and there was absolutely no chance that any of us could ever be identified or located  8)

would be fun to snare some con artist in a trap...

I have had some very enlightening and frustrating out comes with such ventures, they are acquirable by credentials via internet and business search formats, but there is "ALWAYS" something a foot when it comes too the intentions presented.

Personal Example from walmart secret shopper job:

I was sent a cashiers check for $6,281.57 for purchase cash from walmart facilities with in my region. Of course, I had too submit this cashiers check to my bank and do too the amount , had too wait for validation of both check and funds for 7-10 days upon delivery of the check to the bank. This was a check drawn on a JP Morgan/ Chase cashiers check.
Long story short, the check cleared after 5 days, was leaving on a fishing trip so left funds with in my account and then returned from my fishing trip and was contacted from my bank that the cashiers check/funds were with drawn due too fraudulent and counterfeit attributes, told them no problem, left well enough alone and never signed up for such thing's again, but after approximately one month later, I was fined $500 for the incident and had to pay it off or be charged with intentional fraud charges.
Turns out the individuals that sent me the cashiers check for the Secret shopper position was located out of Quebec Canada, and even though the funds were drawn upon or acquired by me physically to start fullfilling the secret shoppers list of purchases they had provided, I was still an accomplice of the matter at hand.

I thought this would be a nice way to create another form of income with intentions of nothing short of purchase/report and fullfill obligations, I will and have never done anything similar to this again, they are all frauds as far as I am concerned. My personal information I had never given such as bank information or any other personal information, for that I am thankful. If I would have done that, I would have had too change everything to protect myself indefinitely from such predators.
If anyone is thinking of doing this "Don't!!!" If you are a resident of the US and have received information for such endeavors from either companies or secret shopper position offers, and they are located out of the US, it is illegal, no funds can be transmitted by either lottery or business financial gains.
After this had happened too me, which was quite some time ago now, I learned all I could on the subject at hand, and unless you are directly associated or affiliated with such Bs. or Lottery associations, it is all illegal, and funds can not be acquired via another nationality or out of USA payments. Took me a month of researching this type of incident because I wanted to re-coupe the $500 I was fined, there is nothing to assist in any such endeavor, basically, you lost the battle before it started, and these people know it.

Just a short story too allow others not to be drawn into such things from personal experience, it will cost you and you will have nothing to show for the event or association, sad as it may be, there is very little too thwart these individuals, I have tried reporting several people using the F8I as a form of credential, all the people told me when I called to inquire was "Don't do anything with them." Pretty lame for being the F8I and then being told that they don't really care, even though these people are using high ranking officials names fraudulently and representing themselves as associated "Safe Programs" of sorts.

Well, that's that. be careful. Be very very careful.
