Antivirus / Scanner detection for submitted sample
Antivirus detection for URL or domain
Multi AV Scanner detection for domain / URL
Antivirus detection for dropped file
Multi AV Scanner detection for dropped file
Yara detected Nanocore RAT
Tries to detect sandboxes and other dynamic analysis tools (process name or module or function)
.NET source code contains potential unpacker
C2 URLs / IPs found in malware configuration
Adds a directory exclusion to Windows Defender
Hides that the sample has been downloaded from the Internet (zone.identifier)
Uses schtasks.exe or at.exe to add and modify task schedules
Uses dynamic DNS services
Uses 32bit PE files
Queries the volume information (name, serial number etc) of a device
Yara signature match
Antivirus or Machine Learning detection for unpacked file
May sleep (evasive loops) to hinder dynamic analysis
Internet Provider seen in connection with other malware
Detected potential crypto function
Sample execution stops while process was sleeping (likely an evasion)
IP address seen in connection with other malware
Contains long sleeps (>= 3 min)
Enables debug privileges
Creates a DirectInput object (often for capturing keystrokes)
Found a high number of Window / User specific system calls (may be a loop to detect user behavior)
Installs a raw input device (often for capturing keystrokes)
Sample file is different than original file name gathered from version info
Drops PE files
Detected TCP or UDP traffic on non-standard ports
Monitors certain registry keys / values for changes (often done to protect autostart functionality)
Creates a process in suspended mode (likely to inject code)
