Update: oledump.py Version 0.0.17 – ExitCode

Filed under: My Software,Update — Didier Stevens @ 9:44

Here is a new version of oledump with a couple of bugfixes and a new feature: ExitCode.

The ExitCode of the Python program running oledump.py is 0, except if the analyzed file contains macros, then it is 1. You can’t use options if you want the ExitCode.

Thanks Philippe for the idea.

Update: NAFT Version 0.0.9

Filed under: Forensics,My Software,Networking,Update — Didier Stevens @ 13:55

This update to NAFT adds support for YARA. YARA rules can be used to search through the heap, like this:

naft-icd.py -y IOS_canary.yara –decoders decoder_xor1 heap r870-core

Address      Bytes     Prev     Next Ref     PrevF    NextF Alloc PC  what
83AB9498 0000004100 83AB9444 83ABA4CC 001  -------- -------- 80B5CC7C  8253709C
 YARA rule: IOS_canary

Rule IOS_canary.yara searches for a canary value inside the blocks.

rule IOS_canary
        $canary = {FD 01 10 DF}

Update: virustotal-search Version 0.1.2 Daily Quota Handling and CVEs

Filed under: My Software,Update — Didier Stevens @ 0:00

This new version op virustotal-search adds a bunch of options to manage the local database, and 2 features I want to highlight here:

1) If you exceed your daily quota, virustotal-search will now do a clean stop. You can use option -w (waitquota) to instruct virustotal-search to wait until your daily quota is reset, and then continue. The quota reset is tested by doing a query every hour.

2) A new column was added to the CSV output: CVEs. virustotal-search will extract CVE numbers from AV detection signatures and report them in column CVEs.

And I also worked together with VirusTotal so that you get a proper error message when you submit an invalid search request (for example MD5 hash prefixed with $).

pdf-parser: A Method To Manipulate PDFs Part 1

Filed under: My Software,PDF,Update — Didier Stevens @ 0:00

I provide 2 days of Hacking PDF training at HITB Amsterdam. This is one of the methods I teach.

Sometimes when I analyze PDF documents (benign or malicious), I want to reduce the PDF to its essential objects. But when one removes objects in a PDF, indexes need to be updated and references updated/removed. To automate this process as much as possible, I updated my pdf-parser program to generate a Python program that in turn, generates the original PDF.

Thus when I want to make changes to the PDF (like removing objects), I generate its corresponding Python program, and then I edit this Python program.

I do this simply with option -g.


Then you can edit the Python program, and when you run it, it will generate a new PDF file.

You can also use option -g together with option -f to filter the streams before they are inserted in the Python program. This gives you the decompressed streams in the Python program, opening them up to editing.

In this example, without option -f the Python statement for the stream object is:

oPDF.stream(5, 0, 'x\x9cs\nQ\xd0w3T02Q\x08IS040P0\x07\xe2\x90\x14\x05\r\x8f\xd4\x9c\x9c|\x85\xf0\xfc\xa2\x9c\x14M\x85\x90,\x05\xd7\x10\x00\xdfn\x0b!', '<<\r\n /Length %d\r\n /Filter /FlateDecode\r\n>>')

And with option -f, it becomes:

oPDF.stream2(5, 0, 'BT /F1 24 Tf 100 700 Td (Hello World) Tj ET', '', 'f')

The generated Python program relies on my mPDF library found in my PDF make tools.

oledump And XML With Embedded OLE Object

Filed under: Malware,My Software,Update — Didier Stevens @ 0:00

I updated oledump to handle a new type of malicious document: an XML file, not with VBA macros, but with an embedded OLE object that is a VBS file.

And the man page is finished. Run oledump.py -m to view the man page.

The sample I’m using here is 078409755.doc (B28EF236D901A96CFEFF9A70562C9155). The extension is .doc, but it is an XML file, not an OLE file.

First check:


The XML file contains an OLE file with 1 stream.

Let’s take a look inside the stream:


Byte 0x78 could be the start of a ZLIB compressed data stream. Let’s checks this with option –decompress:


It is indeed ZLIB compressed, and the decompressed data seems to be another OLE file (D0 CF 11 E0).

So let’s pipe this decompressed OLE file into a second instance of oledump:


This OLE file contains an embedded object (Ole10Native). Let’s have a look:


It seems to be a .VBS file. Let’s have a look:


So this looks like VB Script with base64 strings. Let’s try to decode them with a plugin:


So now it’s clear what this maldoc does: launch PowerShell, download a file and store it as a .cab file in a temporary folder. Expand the downloaded .cab file to an .exe file, and then launch the .exe file. In other words, it is a downloader.
