Vincent Chan gang Index

Country: Hong Kong
Vincent Chan and his Chinese partners have been sending spam for years. They mainly do pharmacy, and are able to send out huge amounts daily. They use vast numbers of compromised computers -- for sending, hosting and proxy hijacking. Now seem to be an "oursourced" server obtainer for other spam gangs.

Main info

Vincent Chan is working together with a Lap Chung Chan (presumably his brother or an alias) and a group of Chinese spammers. They are heavily into pharmacy, but have also spammed for watches and some mailshots for OEM warez, toner and ink cartridges, and mortgages. They have been, or are, an affiliate in Kuvayev's "Taiwanmedia" program.

Chan's own hosting (and hosting he sells to other spammers) have popped up all over China, and he seems to have quite some supply in botnet proxies. Chan and company were the first to massively abuse Geocities redirectors in October of 2005. Now they seem to be into hosting redirectors on compromised Windows machines. In the summer of 2006 they also started hosting the proxy hijackers on compromised Windows machines.

These people have been at it for years, are experienced and put out massive volumes.

They now use their Chinese gang to sign up for cheap VPS systems (Windows OS) to use to host pages and DNS. They seem to sell these to others in the botnet spam underground.

They also hack or use purchased hacked PCs to host their websites & DNS. One host wrote:

"Found that port forwarding was set over ports 80, 8080 and 25. Also found 2 malwares: legacy_360 and worm.autorun."

Another wrote:

"It's a VM that runs win2008 and it seems hacked. It's running a process called TCPPortmapSvc.exe that connects to some Russian IP addresses.""TCPPortmapSvc.exe"
