Exploited crossword puzzles are increasingly popular online.
They’re also incredibly easy to use, as explained by our favorite cybercriminals: They are fun to play, and are generally easy to hack.
In the case of the Elysian Roblox, hackers were able to exploit a vulnerability in the crossword puzzle that allows them to download a file from a victim’s hard drive and exploit the vulnerability to steal a whopping $5 million.
Elysia’s Victims section in the RoblOX store, for example, is filled with thousands of entries from users who had to resort to buying a new set of puzzles to try to beat the game.
The Roblossx exploit used by the cybercrims was so simple it could have been written in an hour.
First, the exploit used a command-and-control server to redirect users to a web page that was hosted by a company called CyberBazaar.
CyberBazar’s customer support page on the RoBlox store said the RoBX exploit “allows you to run a command and control server and download a batch of new crossword solutions from the Internet.”
CyberBazaar was able to install a copy of the Zeus exploit onto the victim’s computer and run it.
When the RoBotBot.exe, the code used to control the RoBLOX exploit, was executed, it sent the victim a command to the server, telling the bot to download the files, which were in a folder named “data.”
The bot then launched a PowerShell script, in which it would execute a command that would cause a new file named “exploit.bat” to be downloaded from the internet.
The script would download the “win32” file to the victim, and the malware would then download another batch of crossword games and run them.
Then the RoBroz.exe program would run.
Once the bot was finished executing, it would stop the exploit from executing and send the victim to the command line to run it again.
Once the RoBoobs.exe was running, it used a simple “chkdsk” command to read a file named exploit.exe from the RoCK files directory and run the malware.
This time, the bot would have been able to download two files.
The first file, “win_exploit_v1.exe,” would be the “exploitable” crossword solution.
On the second file, which CyberBazys website referred to as “win.dll,” the malware could have copied the malicious file “explorer.exe” from the victim PC to the RoDBox server.
Then, it could either use a shell or command prompt to run the exploit on the victim.
A few days after the RoBooz exploit was used to download and execute the RoLoobs.dll file, CyberBaza’s owner and operator of CyberBaze, Christopher Rios, said the exploit was no longer on the site.
CyberBlaze’s CyberBoom, the website where the RoBaBox exploit was originally discovered, is also no longer up.
Rios told Forbes that he sold his stake in CyberBazer after the malware exploit was found.
He said the hack was made possible by the RoBoyz exploit.
CyberBoazers website said the bot could not be traced back to Rios.
Rios told the website that CyberBrazers had a lot of issues with their service.
Cyberboazers was one of the first to report the RoBarox exploit to RoBlozz, but said CyberBax was not able to fix the issue.
