AxMock is released for your review

We build up a project in google code, you can browse AxMock by the link
http://code.google.com/p/axmock

AxMock is a detection tool for malicious webpage attacking ActiveX controls. It runs in Internet Explorer 7 and the formal version.

It is tested in Visual Studio 2008 and Python 2.6 with pywin32 package, though I believe that you can also compile it in later version.

For more using information, please check out Wiki in my project google code page.

Webviz is out for your reviews

Implementation: the whole hooking and some modules

The whole implementation is mainly consisted of 4 modules: central controller, emulator, dummy control and list. Central controller is a dynamic link library written in C++. Emulator and dummy control are COM components written in python and registered into registry by win32com.server.register.UseCommandLine. List is a text file in a certain format to read and modify.

cHook - The new CuckooBox Hooking Engine

Cuckoo Sandbox is a malware analysis system capable to outline the
behavior of a malware during its execution.
In order to generate such results, Cuckoo performs hooking of a number
of selected Windows functions, intercept their calls and after storing
the relevant informations and eventually performing additional actions,
returns the exection to the original code.

Until now it made use of latest Microsoft Detours Express. Part of the
work of this Google Summer of Code was to implement a custom hooking
engine to completely replace the old one.

Midterm Report: The sniffer and emulator for COM components

By now, what I have done for Capture-HPC is:

Midterm Report: Project.6 Static Analysis of Android Malware

For the forthcoming midterm evaluation of Gsoc2011, I made a lot of progress with the code and now I’m about to publish the alpha release. Before the alpha release is released, I have decided to post a blog to inform everyone about the progress of project 6 (Static Analysis of Android Malware).

Our tool is written by PyQt, which is a great interface to Qt for Python. It is very easy to design the UI by Qt Designer. Qt contains lots of libraries to support pretty UI framework. What’s more, Qt supports cross platform applications.
