“Shifu” Banking Trojan – Technical Analysis and Recommendations

janeiro 27, 2017

By: NSFOCUS Security Labs


The banking Trojan “Shifu” was discovered by the IBM counter fraud platform in April, 2015. Built on the Shiz source code, this Trojan employs techniques adopted by multiple notorious Trojans such as Zeus, Gozi, and Dridex. This particular Trojan targeted 14 banks in Japan and re-emerged in Britain compromising 10 banks on September 22, 2015. On January 6, 2017, Palo Alto Networks issued an article indicating that the author of this Trojan re-engineered the exploit in 2016. Specifically, this Trojan at its early stage obtained system privileges of the attacked host by exploiting the vulnerability CVE-2015-0003, but now achieves its purpose by leveraging the Windows privilege escalation vulnerability CVE-2016-0167.

By: Dr. Richard Zhao, SVP of Global Threat Research, NSFOCUS


During the week of January 21, 2017, over 34,000 vulnerable MongoDB databases fell victim to a ransom attack. Data residing on these databases was erased or encrypted and bitcoin payment was demanded in lieu for return of the data. Moreover, on January 18th, 2017, several hundred ElasticSearch servers were hit by a ransom attack within a few hours, and data housed on those servers were erased with ransom demands. The methods that were used to attack the ElasticSearch servers where extremely similar to the exploit that was used in the MongoDB attack. Security researcher Niall Merrigan (who had been following up the MongoDB database compromise) stated, “till now, over 2711 ElasticSearch servers have been attacked.” Many of the victims reside in the USA, with a few outliers in Europe, China, and Singapore.
