Flimrans Affiliate : Borracho



In middle of may a new Ransomware appeared (or at least was spotted), pushed in a new Exploit Kit named Flimkit by Chris Wakelin.

Flimkit pushing Flimrans
Encoded Payload in the Jar
404 Call back for stats

Both were really tied, as Kore/Urausy could be or in a less obvious way Cool EK/Reveton.

Ransomware got refered to as : Flimrans

Nothing really new in the clothes...Same designs as the one used by Urausy back in September 2012
Flimrans Design 2013-05
(match Urausy 2012-09)
In middle of June it seems that the group switched to Styx

(same infection chain that we could see previously in Flimkit)


Then it seems they moved (or just switched public ?) to affiliate mode as far as middle of July

It seems you can get "help" in the distribution. (see later "files") and get stats from this "sub affiliate".
It's only an assumption. Didn't see it live.

Borracho - Config
Note that the "lock" function delay can be set independently by each affiliate member and changed any time they want. This function allow a less obvious connection between infection source and locking for victims and can also help bypass some Analysis environment.

Borracho - Checks
Voucher are received by the Affiliate operator, checked then % shared with members.
Yes...people are still falling for Ransomware...

Borracho - Files
Each time you download you'll get a fresh file. File is tied to Account ID but parameter behind the get seems to allow you to create a "sub-affiliate" and see how successful is the distribution in "Referral" and "Money Stats"

I made a time consuming Design Grabbing session. The only things new at that time were :

Default Design (if country not targeted - it's also one of the multiple Reveton US design)

Flimrans "Failover" Design

US Design (it's also one of the Reveton US design)

Flimrans US Design - 2013-10
ES Design (this is something new to me)

Flimrans ES Design - 2013-10
