Today, I published the following diary on isc.sans.edu: “ShellCode Hidden with Steganography“: When hunting, I’m often surprised by the interesting pieces of code that you may discover… Attackers (or pentesters/redteamers) like to share scripts on VT to evaluate the detection rates against many antivirus products. Sometimes, you find something cool stuffs.
Today, I published the following diary on isc.sans.edu: “Suspicious IP Addresses Avoided by Malware Samples“: Modern malware samples implement a lot of anti-debugging and anti-analysis techniques. The idea is to slow down the malware analyst’s job or, more simply, to bypass security solutions like sandboxes. These days, I see more and more malware
Today, I published the following diary on isc.sans.edu: “Deobfuscation of Malware Delivered Through a .bat File“: I found a phishing email that delivered a RAR archive (password protected).

Today, I published the following diary on isc.sans.edu: “Malicious Code Can Be Anywhere“: My Python hunting rules reported some interesting/suspicious files. The files are named with a “.ma” extension. Some of them have very low VT scores. For example, the one with a SHA256 dc16115d165a8692e6f3186afd28694ddf2efe7fd3e673bd90690f2ae7d59136 has a score of 15/59.
