General Information

Sample Name:BL Draft DOC-20200731-PL#INV203948.exe
Analysis ID:255352

Most interesting Screenshot:


Range:0 - 100


Detected Nanocore Rat
Detected unpacking (changes PE section rights)
Detected unpacking (creates a PE file in dynamic memory)
Detected unpacking (overwrites its own PE header)
Found malware configuration
Malicious sample detected (through community Yara rule)
Sigma detected: NanoCore
Sigma detected: Scheduled temp file as task from temp location
Yara detected Nanocore RAT
.NET source code contains potential unpacker
Contains functionality to detect sleep reduction / modifications
Hides that the sample has been downloaded from the Internet (zone.identifier)
Machine Learning detection for dropped file
Machine Learning detection for sample
Maps a DLL or memory area into another process
Uses schtasks.exe or at.exe to add and modify task schedules
Checks if the current process is being debugged
Contains functionality to call native functions
Contains functionality to check if a debugger is running (IsDebuggerPresent)
Contains functionality to check if a window is minimized (may be used to check if an application is visible)
Contains functionality to detect sandboxes (mouse cursor move detection)
Contains functionality to dynamically determine API calls
Contains functionality to open a port and listen for incoming connection (possibly a backdoor)
Contains functionality to query CPU information (cpuid)
Contains functionality to query locales information (e.g. system language)
Contains functionality to read the PEB
Contains functionality to read the clipboard data
Contains functionality to record screenshots
Contains functionality to retrieve information about pressed keystrokes
Contains long sleeps (>= 3 min)
Creates a process in suspended mode (likely to inject code)
Detected TCP or UDP traffic on non-standard ports
Detected potential crypto function
Drops PE files
Enables debug privileges
Extensive use of GetProcAddress (often used to hide API calls)
Found a high number of Window / User specific system calls (may be a loop to detect user behavior)
Found potential string decryption / allocating functions
Installs a raw input device (often for capturing keystrokes)
May sleep (evasive loops) to hinder dynamic analysis
PE file contains strange resources
Sample execution stops while process was sleeping (likely an evasion)
Sample file is different than original file name gathered from version info
Uses code obfuscation techniques (call, push, ret)
Yara signature match
