KB-Windows Live Messenger可疑連線解密


無意發現Windows Live Messenger開了多條HTTP連線到一台Seednet撥接IP的主機
MSNWeirdHttp
理論上Live Messenger連線的對象應是世界性的Server才對,怎麼會是台來自Seednet撥接網路的機器呢?
試著telnet連上這台機器的80 Port、21 Port及25 Port,都是螢幕全黑後輸入任何字元後被斷線,看來需要特殊規格的Client端才能連。

由以上這些線索,讓我不禁懷疑,該不會是中了木馬吧? 莫非這台是後門程式通訊用的閘道想到這裡,神經都繃了起來!
用Ethereal眼睜睜看著它建連線卻抓不到封包,又更讓人冒冷汗。難道這木馬還有特殊的匿蹤功能,Hook了API後為自己作隱身
又找了個免費軟體VisualSniffer,並重新啟動Live Messenger(或許Ethereal就是卡在Live Messenger沒重啟才沒抓到),總算看到傳輸的Request了,是一堆menu_*.xml。不過該台主機一直傳回HTTP 304 Not Modified,所以也看不出XML內容是什麼。將IE Cache清空後,再試一次,menu*.xml的內容終於現形了。
MSNHttpContent
由XML中的圖檔追下來,才發現這是所謂動畫快遞(Winks)下載目錄的選項資料。


最後證實,原來是虛驚一場。只是為什麼跟Messenger相關的服務卻用的是Seednet撥接上網的Server,真不知其中有什麼祕辛

  • I think the mysterious seednet servers are akamai server serving static content. Akamai's edge computing service allows users worldwide to get the content from a server that's closet to them. Edge computing addresses the latency users experience between msn and a web server while downloading contents over the internet. By having web servers located in distributed geographically location this network latency can be reduced significantly.

    I wrote a simle brutal force script to find out all the static images hosted on these akamai servers.

    #!/bin/bash


    LIMIT=20000

    for ((a=1; a <= LIMIT ; a++)) # Double parentheses, and "LIMIT" with no "$".
    do
    curl -I -s http://akamai.meegos.com/images/$a.gif|grep "200 OK"
    if [ "$?" -eq "0" ]
    then
    echo $a
    fi
    done

    echo; echo

    and found a few other images related to msn

  • Awesome! thanks for your information and I just wrote another post about Akamai.
    Your script is cool and remind me of the power of shell script.
