General Information

Analysis ID:355858

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)
Multi AV Scanner detection for domain / URL
Multi AV Scanner detection for dropped file
Multi AV Scanner detection for submitted file
Sigma detected: NanoCore
Sigma detected: Scheduled temp file as task from temp location
Snort IDS alert for network traffic (e.g. based on Emerging Threat rules)
Yara detected Nanocore RAT
.NET source code contains potential unpacker
C2 URLs / IPs found in malware configuration
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 dynamic DNS services
Uses schtasks.exe or at.exe to add and modify task schedules
Antivirus or Machine Learning detection for unpacked file
Contains capabilities to detect virtual machines
Contains functionality for read data from the clipboard
Contains functionality to check if a debugger is running (IsDebuggerPresent)
Contains functionality to dynamically determine API calls
Contains functionality to query CPU information (cpuid)
Contains functionality to read the PEB
Contains functionality to shutdown / reboot the system
Contains functionality which may be used to detect a debugger (GetProcessHeap)
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
Found a high number of Window / User specific system calls (may be a loop to detect user behavior)
Found potential string decryption / allocating functions
IP address seen in connection with other malware
Installs a raw input device (often for capturing keystrokes)
Internet Provider seen in connection with other malware
May sleep (evasive loops) to hinder dynamic analysis
Queries the volume information (name, serial number etc) of a device
Sample execution stops while process was sleeping (likely an evasion)
Sample file is different than original file name gathered from version info
Uses 32bit PE files
Uses code obfuscation techniques (call, push, ret)
