CVE-2015-2419 (Internet Explorer) and Exploits Kits




As published by FireEye Angler EK is now exploiting CVE-2015-2419 fixed with MS15-065

Angler EK :
2015-08-10

It seems they might have started to work on that exploit as early as 2015-07-24 where some instances briefly used code to gather ScriptEngineVersion from redirected visitors :

Today first pass i made was showing a new POST call and was successfully exploiting a VM that used to be safe to Angler.

(Here bedep grabbing Pony and TeslaCrypt then doing some AdFraud)

I spent (too much ;) ) time trying to decode that b value in the POST reply.
Here are some materials :

- The landing after first pass of decoding and with some comments : http://pastebin.com/JQuyAXar

The post call is handled by String['prototype']['jjd'] , ggg is sent to Post data as well as the ScriptEngineVersion (in the shared pass : 17728 )

- The l() function handling the post : http://pastebin.com/hxZJwbaY
- The post data and reply after first pass of decoding : http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=NWkU7CXr

( I am waiting for some strong confirmation on CVE-2015-2426 used as PrivEsc only here )

As you can see the CVE-2015-2419 is a RIP of Angler EK's implementation (even containing their XTea key, despite payload is in clear)

Note : The CVE-2015-2426 seems to be used for privilege escalation only

Cryptowall dropped by Magnitude executed as NT Authority\system after CVE-2015-2426
2015-08-23


and has been associated to flash Exploit as well.
