; MASM32 BadStringFormat example
; coded by ap0x
; Reversing Labs: http://ap0x.headcoders.net

; This example takes advantage of OllyDBG not handleing strings properly.
; Code is based on Piotr Bania`s description.
; How does it work? If we name the file %s%s or any other name that has
; %s%s in it`s name OllyDBG will crash.
; How to use this?
; We just check if the file has been renamed.

PUSH 512
PUSH offset filename ;%s%s.exe
PUSH 0
CALL GetModuleFileName

MOV ECX,offset filename
ADD ECX,EAX

  @SeekFileName:
DEC ECX
CMP BYTE PTR[ECX],'\'
JNE @SeekFileName

MOV BYTE PTR[ECX],0
INC ECX

PUSH ECX
PUSH offset OriginalFileName ;%s%s.exe
CALL lstrcmp

TEST EAX,EAX
JNE @DebuggerDetected

PUSH 40h
PUSH offset DbgNotFoundTitle
PUSH offset DbgNotFoundText
PUSH 0
CALL MessageBox

JMP @exit
  @DebuggerDetected:

PUSH 30h
PUSH offset DbgFoundTitle
PUSH offset DbgFoundText
PUSH 0
CALL MessageBox

  @exit:

PUSH 0
CALL ExitProcess
