Quickpost: nslookup Types

Filed under: Networking,Quickpost — Didier Stevens @ 0:00

A reminder to myself, how to set a nslookup type via the command-line:

The label of the root domain is an empty string, hence a FQDN with root domain ends with a dot (.), like google.com. :

New Tool: amsiscan.py

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

amsiscan.py is a Python script that uses Windows 10’s AmsiScanBuffer function to scan input for malware.

It reads one or more files or stdin.

The AmsiScanBuffer function returns 5 possible values when it is called for a scan:

AMSI_RESULT_CLEAN
AMSI_RESULT_NOT_DETECTED
AMSI_RESULT_BLOCKED_BY_ADMIN_START
AMSI_RESULT_BLOCKED_BY_ADMIN_END
AMSI_RESULT_DETECTED

Update: virustotal-search.py Version 0.1.5

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

virustotal-search.py is a tool to query VirusTotal via its public API for file reports by providing hashes to search for.

This new version adds searching for URLs. Use option -t to select the type of search you want: file (default) or url.

Like this:

Option -e can be used to include extra information (present in the JSON reply) not included by default.

For example, a default file search does not include sha256 hashes:

But you can include it with option “-e sha256” like this:

The public API can also be used for queries for domain names and IP addresses. These queries are much simpler than file and url, and therefor, I developed a very generic program to query APIs. This will be released soon.

Quickpost: C Random Functions in Other Languages

Filed under: Quickpost — Didier Stevens @ 0:00

Some time ago, I had to implement a particular C-runtime random number generator in Python. That’s not difficult to do, you just need a variable that maintains the state (seed) of the random number generator, and then you use a simple algebraic expression: a linear congruential generator.

What’s more difficult to figure out, is knowing which multiplier (a) and increment (c) you need to reproduce the particular C-runtime random number generator.

Fortunately, I discovered that Wikipedia has a table with a and c values for many C compilers and other languages: parameters in common use.

Update: sets.py Version 0.0.3

Filed under: My Software,Update — Didier Stevens @ 9:21

sets.py is a program to perform set operations. In this new version, I added operations unique, product, substitute and sort.

And I added options -s and -i.

Operation unique will remove all double entries (which shouldn’t occur anyway in a mathematical set):

“Line 5” appears twice in set4.txt, thus one occurrence is remove by operation unique. “Line 4” and “Line 6” not, because their case is different, or because they have leading whitespace.

To ignore case, use option -i, and to ignore leading and trailing whitespace, use option -s:

Update: hex-to-bin.py Version 0.0.2

Filed under: My Software,Update — Didier Stevens @ 10:47

This new version comes with option -a to parse ASCII/hexdumps as produced by my tools.

Option -s can be used to select another hexadecimal/ASCII dump than the first one (for example, -s 2 to select the second dump).

Option -l (list) can be used to produce an overview of all hexadecimal/ASCII dumps found in the input, together with an index number to be used with option -s.
