INT3 is an interruption which is used as Software breakpoints. These breakpoints are set by modifying the code at the target address, replacing it with a byte value
0xCC (INT3 / Breakpoint Interrupt).
EXCEPTION_BREAKPOINT (0x80000003) is generated, and an exception handler will be raised. Malware identify software breakpoints by scanning for the byte 0xCC in the protector …
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 …
In computer security, a NOP slide is a sequence of NOP (no-operation) instructions that is inserted at the beginning of a code section. When a program branches to the start of this code section, it will "slide" through the NOP instructions until it reaches the desired, final destination. This technique is commonly used in software exploits to direct program execution …
Abusing the return pointer is an anti-disassembling technique that involves using the return instruction (RETN) in a way that is not expected by the disassembler. This can make it more difficult for the disassembler to accurately reconstruct the program's original instructions and can also make it more difficult for analysts to understand the program's behavior.
The RETN instruction is normally …
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 …
The CPUID instruction is a low-level command that allows you to retrieve information about the CPU that is currently running. This instruction, which is executed at the CPU level (using the bytecode 0FA2), is available on all processors that are based on the Pentium architecture or newer.
You can use the CPUID instruction to retrieve various pieces of information about …
The IN instruction is a type of machine code instruction that is used to read data from an input port. This instruction can only be executed in privileged mode, such as in kernel mode, and an attempt to execute it in user mode will generate an exception.
However, some virtual machine monitors, such as VMWare, use a special port called …
This anti-debugging technique involves using the
INT n instruction to generate a call to the interrupt or exception handler specified with the destination operand.
To implement this technique, the int
0x03 instruction is executed, followed by a
ret (0xCD03, 0xC3) nested in a
__try, __except block. If a debugger is present, the except block will not be executed, and …
When the instruction
INT2D is executed, the exception
EXCEPTION_BREAKPOINT is raised. Windows uses the EIP register as an exception address and then increments the EIP register value. Windows also examines the value of the EAX register while
INT2D is executed.
DNS API injection is a technique used by malware to evade detection by intercepting and modifying DNS (Domain Name System) requests made by a host system. The technique involves injecting code into the DNS API (Application Programming Interface) of the host system, which is a set of functions and protocols that allow communication with the DNS service. By injecting code …
