In addition to the domains used by the skimmers, the server also had two sites whose domains were clearly created for phishing two Canadian banks:
rbcroyalbank[.]com.ng – Real address of the Royal Bank of Canada is rbcroyalbank.com
www1-bmo[.]com.co – Online banking for the Bank of Montreal is www1.bmo.com.
Given that the goal of malware on e-commerce sites and bank phishing is to obtain payment details and steal money, it’s quite natural to see the same bad actors participating in both types of attacks.
Moreover, as Group IB wrote in April about the previous wave of these JS skimmers, this campaign is known for using fake Magento login pages on domains mimicking the domain names of the online stores they tried to compromise. So phishing and credit card skimmers complement each other very well.
Unlike other domains, where registrant details were hidden by privacy protection services, the rbcroyalbank[.]com.ng domain had public WHOIS information.
Creation Date: 2019-06-10 ... Registrant ID: 1319589-NIRA Registrant Name: Julio Jaime Registrant Organization: Media Lend, LLC Registrant Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Most likely, this information is [mostly] fake—but it was enough to find another batch of phishing domains.
While the data says the address is in Indiana, the zip code and city provided are in New Jersey.
The email “email@example.com” suggests a connection to a Russian domain name registrar reg.ru. Most likely, it’s a dedicated email address used specifically for registering new domain names.
We used DomainBigData to search if anything else was associated with that medialand.regru account and found a whole bunch of other [mostly] phishing domains registered in 2019.
Here are just some of them:
