Evasion using direct Syscalls Antivirus/EDR Evasion
In the Windows operating system, conventional malware frequently utilizes strategies involving the invocation of specific functions from the kernel32.dll library, such as
CreateThread. A closer inspection of the call stack reveals that the functions employed from kernel32.dll eventually trigger corresponding functions within the ntdll.dll library. This is facilitated by the ntdll.dll library, which serves …
System Binary Proxy Execution: Regsvcs/Regasm Defense Evasion [Mitre]
Adversaries may abuse Regsvcs and Regasm to proxy execution of code through a trusted Windows utility. Regsvcs and Regasm are Windows command-line utilities that are used to register .NET Component Object Model (COM) assemblies. Both are binaries that may be digitally signed by Microsoft.
Both utilities may be used to bypass application control through use of attributes within the binary …
Disassembly Desynchronization Anti-Disassembly
Disassembly desynchronization is a technique that is used to prevent disassemblers from accurately reconstructing the original instructions of a program. It involves the creative use of instructions and data in a way that breaks the normal, predictable sequence of instructions in a program. This can cause disassemblers to become "desynchronized" and generate incorrect disassembly output.
For example, suppose a program …
Dynamically Computed Target Address Anti-Disassembly
Dynamically computed target addresses is an anti-disassembling technique that involves using dynamically computed addresses as the targets of branch instructions in a program. This can make it difficult for a disassembler to accurately reconstruct the original instructions of the program, as the disassembler will not be able to determine the correct target addresses for the branch instructions without actually executing …
Thwarting Stack-Frame Analysis Anti-Disassembly
Thwarting Stack-Frame Analysis is a technique used by malware to make it more difficult for security analysts to reverse engineer and analyze the code. A stack frame is a collection of data associated with a function, including local variables, arguments passed to the function, and the return address. Disassemblers can use information from the stack frame to understand a function's …
ASPack is an EXE packer created to compress Win32 executable files and to protect them against reverse engineering.
The solution makes Windows programs and libraries smaller up to 70% what leads to a reduction in the download time of compressed applications in local networks and the Internet because of their smaller size compared to uncompressed apps.
The ASPack exe compressor …
ASProtect is a multifunctional EXE packing tool designed for software developers to protect 32-bit applications with in-built application copy protection system.
It includes software compression, provides protection methods and tools for software from unauthorized copying, analysis, disassemblers and debuggers.
ASProtect 32 also provides enhanced work with registration keys and the ability to create a single application that can change its …
Impossible Disassembly Anti-Disassembly
Impossible disassembly is an anti-disassembling technique that involves inserting data bytes after a conditional jump instruction in order to prevent the real instruction that follows from being disassembled. This technique takes advantage of a basic assumption in disassembly, which states that one byte is only interpreted in the context of one instruction. By inserting a byte that is the opcode …
