A team administrator is responsible for the management of all tasks complementary to traffic generation. This notably includes getting a stealer licence and sharing builds ready for distribution to the team members, checking the received logs for validity, and exploiting them quickly.
Team administrators prompt recruited members to distribute the builds widely, to generate a large volume of logs via stealer infections, and reward them based on a formula in which both quantity and quality of the collected information are taken into account.
Team administrators regularly organise competitions in which traffers are challenged to collect a maximum of logs, i.e. distribute a maximum number of builds. Winners are awarded with cash prizes, and upgraded to a Pro version of the membership. The Pro version unlocks access to a second stealer, traffers are invited to a private Telegram channel, they get better services (like SEO and else) and bonuses.
Traffers can also distribute their own information stealer, and monetize the collected logs by themselves by selling them on underground marketplaces. They can as well steal cryptocurrency from crypto wallets without integrating an organised team. Nevertheless, from our observations, joining a team is largely preferred by traffers, as it comes along with a number of advantages, to name a few:
Other common delivery methods include websites masquerading as blogs or software installation pages to deliver password-protected archives. Some traffers teams display good knowledge of Google Ads, Facebook Ads, Reddit Ads, or other advertising platforms to promote their websites and reach a larger audience through indexing on search engines. Such campaigns are often put in the spotlight as they affect many victims.
The new version of Racoon Stealer appears to have been rewritten from scratch, retaining the old features while adding to the appearance and functionality of the admin dashboard. According to the developer, this has apparently reduced the size of the build and made the logs more informative. The following features were said to be present in the new version of the malware (translated from the original post shown above):
Assume the file containing the Base64 encrypted coinminer code could be dropped anywhere. The attacker could actually now be creating a diversion where he is dropping two files; one being a legit system-logs.txt log file.
The Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console permits the creation of Work Manager configurations that are not supported and do not function as intended. Incorrect Work Manager configurations may result in several exceptions being recorded in the server logs, most commonly Validation problems were found exceptions while parsing deployment descriptors.
You must check the server logs carefully to determine the reason for the server failure which led to the shutdown failure. You can continue the rollout after resolving the issue and manually shutting down the server.
Oracle strongly recommends verifying the behavior of a server restart after abrupt machine failures when the JMS messages and transaction logs are stored on an NFS mounted directory. Depending on the NFS implementation, different issues can arise post failover/restart. 59ce067264
