Sophos research: Hackers targeting Discord platform

Cybercriminals are increasingly using the popular chat platform Discord to distribute and control malware targeting users of the service, new research by next-generation cybersecurity company Sophos has found.  

According to researchers from the company, malware is increasingly targeting the Discord chat platform, and the misuse of Discord has grown substantially over the last year. The cyberthreats uncovered by the researchers include information-stealing malware, spyware, backdoors, and ransomware resurrected as “mischiefware”. 

The findings are based on an analysis by Sophos researchers of more than 1,800 malicious files detected on Discord’s content management network (CDN). Among other things, the research reveals how the number of URLs hosting malware on the network during the second quarter of 2021 increased by 140% compared to the same period in 2020.

Sean Gallagher, senior threat researcher at Sophos said “Discord provides a persistent, highly-available, global distribution network for malware operators, as well as a messaging system that these operators can adapt into command-and-control channels for their malware – in much the same way attackers have used Internet Relay Chat and Telegram. Discord’s vast user base also provides an ideal environment for stealing personal information and credentials through social engineering.”

“We found one malware that can steal private images from the camera on an infected device, as well as ransomware from 2006 that the attackers have resurrected to use as ‘mischiefware’. The mischiefware denies victims access to their data, but there’s no ransom demand and no decryption key,” said Gallagher.

“Further, adversaries have caught on that companies increasingly use the Discord platform for internal or community chat in the same way they might use a channel like Slack. This provides attackers with a new and potentially lucrative target audience, especially when security teams can’t always inspect the Transport Layer Security-encrypted traffic to and from Discord to see what’s going on and raise the alarm if needed.”

The investigation into malicious content linked to Discord found the following:

Sophos Discovers Malware That Blocks The Pirate Bay

Sophos has revealed new malware with a curious goal: preventing its victims from pirating software. The company says this digital vigilante, which is similar to a malware family discovered over a decade ago, modifies the infected system’s HOSTS file to block access to The Pirate Bay and other piracy-related sites.

“Modifying the HOSTS file is a crude but effective method to prevent a computer from being able to reach a web address,” SophosLabs Principal Researcher Andrew Brandt says in a blog post. “It’s crude because, while it works, the malware has no persistence mechanism. Anyone can remove the entries after they’ve been added to the HOSTS file, and they stay removed (unless you run the program a second time).”

The malware is said to spread via the Discord communications platform by masquerading as pirated copies of popular games. Brandt says it’s also distributed over BitTorrent in bundles “named after popular games, productivity tools, and even security products” that include other files whose sole purpose is to make the malware “appear to have originated with a well-known file sharing account on ThePirateBay.”

After the malware is downloaded it sends two HTTP GET requests to a now-inactive domain. The first request fetches a second payload called “ProcessHacker.jpg” that includes a kill-switch to prevent the malware from operating on devices containing files named “7686789678967896789678” and “412412512512512.” The files themselves can be empty; they simply have to use those names.

The second request “uses a query string to send the filename of the executable that was run to the website’s operators,” Brandt said, which would have allowed them to learn more about what kinds of files people are trying to pirate. That effort appears to have been dropped—Brandt says the server to which the HTTP GET requests were sent “no longer responds to requests, nor has a DNS record.”

Sophos has updated its security products to defend against this malware. Brandt says anyone who’s already been affected by the campaign can manually restore their access to the websites it blocked by running Notepad as an administrator and “modifying the…
