A number of IoC sites that have been registered this year offer cracked software that includes Bitcoin mining tools, Android-based keygens, and customized toolkits that allow businesses to develop commercial applications with fewer resources. These domains are identified in the chart below:
We sifted through numerous sites that offer cracks and keygens and found that many of them are often well hidden, making them harder to identify as malicious. The majority of the crack and keygen sites we found have been registered in 2017 and are typically only visible to those with technical expertise and tools to search the Internet.
The tools offered at some sites are simply crackers that also use social engineering techniques (e.g. luring users into email-based attacks) to get users to open the cracks. The tools offered at other sites use remote code execution (RCE) vulnerabilities to install malware such as spyware and adware. Some of these are “shipware” sites that simply sell the keygens as a part of the overall service.
More recently, around half of the 39 domains we searched offer only “cracks” of popular Windows software such as Office, Adobe, Java or Chrome. Many others offer older and less popular software, or offer “cracks” for free on condition that the user agrees to download and install spyware or other malware. Some of these sites are hosting the cracks in an effort to monetize them by forcing users to provide credit card details.
