A spate of fake “Amazon.com – Your Confirmation” emails is making the rounds – they are phishing emails, with the supposed ‘Amazon’ links actually being hidden links going to such interesting places as http://drevmash.alfaspace.net/admiral.html, gofiberzone[dot]com/upper.html, and meeknew.com. The subject (which so far appears to use the same “confirmation” number for everyone), is “Amazon.com – Your Confirmation (0113-567494-3518071)” and supposedly comes from the email address [email protected] In reality, they are coming from IP address 124.217.216.112, and the emails are sent from (almost certainly spoofed) email addresses such as [email protected] and [email protected]

Here is a sample of what the average user sees when they see this email (keep reading below to see what is hidden in the email):

Amazon.com – Your Confirmation (0113-567494-3518071)
From: [email protected]

But look what where the “ORDER INFORMATION” link actually goes (here are two samples, with two different “payload” links to masked URLs):

 

amazon-phish-spam-alfaspace.net

 

amazon-spam-phishing-gofiberzone.com

 

Do you see the actual links that are masked as a link to your order information? In these samples, they go to:

drevmash.alfaspace[dot]net/admiral.html

and

gofiberzone[dot]com/upper.html

Both of which then redirect to this site:

meeknew[dot]com

Meeknew[dot]com then, is the actual ultimate destination of these links and, not surprisingly, is registered in China, and hosted by nameservers in Russia. And Alfaspace.net is privately registered in the Grand Cayman Islands. Also not surprising.

Nor is it surprising that the ultimate destination at Meeknew[dot]com looks like this:

meeknew

What is, perhaps, surprising is that GoFiberZone.com is not only not privately registered, but is openly registered to Benard Blasingame, in Tennessee, with full contact information available. Plus, the site has been registered since 2007, suggesting that perhaps Mr. Blasingame’s system has been co-opted by someone else for nefarious purposes, without Mr. Blasingame’s knowledge (so someone please let him know, ok?)
