Osiris, the god of afterlife...and banking malware?!

After coming back from the Chaos Communication Camp two days ago I thought it would be a good idea to check on the current malware events out there, so come along for the ride

I came across this sample after this tweet by @James_inthe_box :

Properties of the Executable

A short disclaimer: downloading and running the samples linked below will compromise your computer and data, so be f$cking careful. Also check with your local laws as owning malware binaries/ sources might be illegal depending on where you live.

Get your sample today from:

Osiris available @ https://malshare.com/sample.php?action=detail&hash=9f4d8bd1cba2681f3bcf642f56342ac7 sha256 0325714eeb2af235a0f543ad9e11b5d852a61be78c9ece308c651412d97edd39

Binding for System Startup

After running the sample for the first time it adds itself to system startup and copies itself to %appdata%\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Protected\setspn.exe. Comparing the malicious setspn.exe with the Microsoft Original (which is normally found at C:\Windows\System32\setspn.exe) with the help of PEBear it is obvious that the files are not the same.

To jump straight to the Hybrid-Analysis report for fixed111.exe click here. I picked out a couple of interesting findings for you:

Hybrid-Analysis IR

One thing that stands out is that Osiris uses components of the Nullsoft Scriptable Installer. I did not look into it that far yet, but it seems like it is used for a headless install only.

Hybrid-Analysis Mini-Tor

A quite interesting find: this Osiris sample uses a POC implementation called Mini-Tor for communication with the Tor network. Pretty convenient for the malware author as it keeps the size of the binary small, but still allows data exfiltration over an anonymized protocol.

Click here for the Any.Run analysis.

AnyRun HTTP Requests

As the Twitter Discussion about this sample started multiple theories about the Tor Requests were brought up. My explaination for this behaviour is that the malware is exfiltrating data over the Tor network. Because of the URL format of the requested sites IPAddress/tor/servers/fp/-HASH- one can assume that the contacted servers are Directory Servers which hold the Server Descriptor Files for known Nodes. This is why I'd classify this behaviour as more or less standard client communication.

GermanWiper's big Brother? GandGrab's kid ? Sodinokibi!

After last week's analysis on GermanWiper I thought it would be about time to have a Look at Sodinokibi aka REvil, the new weird kid on the block.

According to Cybereason the Sodinokibi Ransomware was written by the same guys who created GandCrab, which is a pretty big deal after GandCrab retired recently. The samples that I'll be looking at today were first dropped in Asia, but it did not take long to reach other continents as well. A general disclaimer as always: downloading and running the samples linked below will lead to the encryption of your personal data, so be...

TFW Ransomware is only your side hustle...

and you constantly have to apply for jobs. A partial analysis of the "GermanWiper" Ransomware

Today someone posted about a Ransomware attack on the local chat plaform Jodel (don't judge please, as you know the sketchy corners of the web get you the best samples :D) which instantly peaked my interest. What I got was this email and the two attached files. The two attached files Applicant Name - Lebenslauf Aktuell.doc.lnk and Applicant Name - Arbeitszeugnisse Aktuell.doc.lnk are made to look like Microsoft Office...

Picking Locky 🔓

Back in 2016 Locky was (one of) the first to commercialize the "art" of holding data for ransom. I picked this strain because I would like a bit more of a challenge in terms of obfuscation and anti-disassembly techniques, so strap in for this OG Ransomware

Locky (at least the first few versions) is said to be created by the makers of the Dridex/Cridex banking trojans. For example the spreading mechanism via macros in Word or Excel documents sent out via carefully crafted spear-phishing emails is exactly the same for both of these strains. A general disclaimer as always: downloading and running the samples linked below will lead to the encryption of your personal data, so be f$cking careful. Also check with...

Third time's the charm? Analysing WannaCry samples

After over two years since the inital spread of the ransomware and Malwaretechs sentencing last week I got a bit nostalgic and took a second look at different samples

Since the first wave of infections in May 2017 WannaCry is basically the goto example for the whole ransomware scheme and that is actually a good thing. The potential damage that WannaCry and the variants following the original version would have been massive if it wouldn't have been for Malwaretech, 2sec4u and all the other researchers who helped to contain the spread of ransomware powered by...

About me

Hey there! My Name is Marius Genheimer aka f0wL and I'm a Computer Science Student from Germany. As you can probably tell I like to analyse malware (especially Ransomware) in my spare time.


My shot at an automated analysis platform based on the Cuckoo Sandbox. Feel free to drop your samples!
