I published the following diary on isc.sans.org: “Getting some intelligence from malspam“. Many of us are receiving a lot of malspam every day.

I’m still busy to follow how webshells are evolving… I recently found another backdoor in another webshell called “cor0.id”. The best place to find webshells remind pastebin.com.

I published the following diary on isc.sans.org: “Malicious AutoIT script delivered in a self-extracting RAR file“. Here is another sample that hit my curiosity.

Just a quick post about an interesting file found in a phishing kit. Bad guys use common techniques to prevent crawlers, scanners or security companies from accessing their pages. Usually, they deploy a .htaccess file to achieve this. Today, I found a phishing kit related to a bank (ANZ) with such
