Another Monday has been and gone (on this side of the world at least). I thought I'd sit down again and share some of the interestingness (yes, that's a word now) that came through my various news feeds over the course of the weekend. I'm hoping this week will be a little less malware focused, but I can't make any promises.

@mboman: New blog post: MART - Malware Analyst Research Toolkit: Cuckoo Sandbox:
Good evening/morning folks.
It's been fairly busy here at HNP HQ for a number of reasons. That said, there were a number of interesting articles over the weekend I thought I'd hilight here for your reading pleasure. This week seems to be a week of malware so we will stick with that theme.
Although it is still time for the official coding period start at GSoC 2012, i started to make my commits for the Network Analyzer project . The output of the project will be a web based traffic analyzer. It is aimed to let people upload their files from web interface and see the results. Instead of the detail header information, network analyzer will be focusing on applicaiton level data for display.
Here is another tool release from The Honeynet Project: Cuckoo Box by Claudio Guarnieri. Cuckoo is a binary analysis sandbox, designed and developed with the general purpose of automating the analysis of malware. Read more about the tool here, grab the tool here – but please read detailed setup guide here (make sure to read it!). BTW, this tool is really well-documented, so make use of it before deploying it.
Basically, The TWMAN is an automated behavioral malware analysis environment to analyze the malware targeted at Microsoft Windows, and it can develop a free and open source software, and the environment is built around Joe Stewart's TRUMAN sandnet. Although, there are many services of analysis malware behavioral, such as the Norman Sandbox, CWSandbox, Threat Expert, etc. For privacy and policy reasons, it must be treated as if they contain personally identifiable information.

The last spreading malware version of Waledac, a notorious spamming botnet that has been taken down in a collaborative effort lead by Microsoft earlier this year, contained some neat anti-debugging tricks in order to make reverse-engineering more difficult. Felix Leder and I have been presenting about the approach at SIGINT 2010 in Cologne yesterday, and as the method seems to be not publicly known yet, I will quickly describe it here as well.
Many people have asked us, how Conficker looks like. That's a tough question for something that's hidden and tries to be as stealthy as possible. The last time somebody asked me: "Can you show me Conficker?", I decided to visualize Conficker. Here is a little video that shows the evil core of Conficker.C.
