Anti Yara Rules Others
Yara rules are used by malware researchers to identify and classify malware based on specific characteristics and behaviors. These rules are powerful because they allow researchers to quickly and accurately detect malware, even if it has been modified to avoid detection. However, attackers can also modify their malware to avoid detection by Yara rules.
This is often seen with ransomware, …
FIleless Mechanisms Process Manipulating
Fileless malware is a type of malware that is designed to reside and execute entirely in the memory of a host system, without leaving any trace on the local disk. This can make it more difficult for security tools to detect and remove the malware, as it does not leave any files on the system that can be scanned or …
Time Bomb Others Sandbox Evasion
Some malware contains a built-in expiration date, after which the malware will no longer run or function. This can be used by attackers to limit the time during which the malware can be detected and analyzed by security researchers. In order to run and analyze the malware after its expiration date, security researchers must manually change the date on the …
Checking Malware Name Sandbox Evasion Anti-Monitoring
Malware can use various techniques to evade detection by security analysts and researchers. One such technique is to check the name of the malware sample before fully executing on the infected machine. If the sample has been renamed to a blacklisted name, such as "malware.exe" or "sample.exe", or even with the file hash, the malware can detect this and change …
Constant Blinding Data Obfuscation
Constant blinding can be employed by malware authors to obfuscate their malicious code, making it harder for security researchers and antivirus software to detect and analyze the malware. By using constant blinding techniques, the malware code can be concealed, increasing its chances of evading detection and maintaining persistence on the target system.
Here's how constant blinding can be utilized in …
Geofencing in malware refers to a technique used by cybercriminals to restrict the distribution or activation of malicious software based on geographical location. Malware authors use geofencing to target specific regions or avoid certain areas, such as their home country, in order to evade detection, minimize the chances of being investigated, or maximize the effectiveness of their attacks.
Geofencing works …
Unloading Module with FreeLibrary Antivirus/EDR Evasion
Malware authors often use various techniques to evade detection by AV/EDR solutions. One such technique involves checking for the presence of AV/EDR DLLs that may be loaded in the malware's address space and attempting to unload them before executing their malicious code.
To do this, the malware first uses the
GetModuleHandleA function to retrieve a handle to the DLL, if …
DLL Injection via CreateRemoteThread and LoadLibrary Process Manipulating
DLL Injection Via
LoadLibrary is a technique used by malware to inject its code into a legitimate process. This technique is similar to hook injection, where the malware inserts a malicious DLL to be used by the system. It is one of the most common techniques used to inject malware into another process.
The malware writes the path …
Hook Injection Process Manipulating
Hook injection is a technique used by malware to alter the behavior of internal functions in an operating system or application. This is typically achieved by inserting malicious code into existing function calls, allowing the malware to intercept and manipulate the normal flow of execution.
In the case of Windows, the
SetWindowsHookEx function can be used by programs to install …
Virtualization/Sandbox Evasion: Time Based Evasion Defense Evasion [Mitre]
Adversaries may employ various time-based methods to detect and avoid virtualization and analysis environments. This may include enumerating time-based properties, such as uptime or the system clock, as well as the use of timers or other triggers to avoid a virtual machine environment (VME) or sandbox, specifically those that are automated or only operate for a limited amount of time. …
