Does anyone know what is going on with these:

208.66.195.15/40e8001430303030303030303030303030303030303031306c0000004d66000000007600000002

208.66.194.180/40e8001430303030303030303030303030303030303031306c0000003c66000000007600000002
208.66.195.165/40e8001430303030303030303030303030303030303031306c0000004d66000000007600000002

I've noticed that by changing bits in the param, you get different malware. Sometimes you get duplicates, sometimes not. I've never gotten two different samples by passing the same param- and that applies to the different IPs.

Does anyone know what this is about? What is with the weird parameters? Does anyone have any clues about what these IPs are used for and how they work???

I'm wondering the same thing. I posted links like these at   http://www.malwaredomainlist.com/forums/index.php?topic=1578.0

Since then my honeypot has found these urls...

Might as well mention I first starting seeing these urls 2 weeks ago.

First discovered on 'ThePlanet'

Code: [Select]
http://207.218.237.82/40e8001430303030303030303030303030303030303031306c0000005866000000007600000002
http://74.53.251.34/40e8001430303030303030303030303030303030303031306c0000005866000000007600000002
http://75.125.207.50/40e8001430303030303030303030303030303030303031306c0000005866000000007600000002

If you search those ips on threatexpert.com you get some reports of malware downloading these urls

Here's one example...

Can you ellaborate a little on how they were found? Were they embedded into another page, and if so, can you post a URL or a snippet on how it is being propagated?

Based on the sequential IP addresses being used here, I would guess that the people behind this are scanning IP ranges and installing this distribution system.

208.66.195.15
208.66.195.71
208.66.195.165

208.66.194.180
208.66.194.231

75.125.207.50
75.125.207.82

I ran a huge chunk of malware I received from some Av vendor in my VM and logged what was being downloaded.

Interesting. I wonder if the malware that downloads these samples somehow uses those weird parameters. Can you share a sample with me?
