Analysis ID:452311

Most interesting Screenshot:


Range:0 - 100


Detected Nanocore Rat
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
Yara detected AntiVM autoit script
Yara detected Nanocore RAT
.NET source code contains potential unpacker
Allocates memory in foreign processes
C2 URLs / IPs found in malware configuration
Connects to many ports of the same IP (likely port scanning)
Drops PE files with a suspicious file extension
Hides that the sample has been downloaded from the Internet (zone.identifier)
Injects a PE file into a foreign processes
Protects its processes via BreakOnTermination flag
Uses dynamic DNS services
Uses schtasks.exe or at.exe to add and modify task schedules
Writes to foreign memory regions
Antivirus or Machine Learning detection for unpacked file
Contains functionality for read data from the clipboard
Contains functionality to access loader functionality (e.g. LdrGetProcedureAddress)
Contains functionality to block mouse and keyboard input (often used to hinder debugging)
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 communicate with device drivers
Contains functionality to dynamically determine API calls
Contains functionality to execute programs as a different user
Contains functionality to launch a process as a different user
Contains functionality to launch a program with higher privileges
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 retrieve information about pressed keystrokes
Contains functionality to shutdown / reboot the system
Contains functionality to simulate keystroke presses
Contains functionality to simulate mouse events
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
File is packed with WinRar
Found WSH timer for Javascript or VBS script (likely evasive script)
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
Monitors certain registry keys / values for changes (often done to protect autostart functionality)
OS version to string mapping found (often used in BOTs)
PE file contains strange resources
Potential key logger detected (key state polling based)
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
Tries to load missing DLLs
Uses 32bit PE files
Uses code obfuscation techniques (call, push, ret)
Yara signature match
