This is a new tool (beta) to analyze ISO files. I made this for a webinar I presented: a demo on how to use my templates to create your own tools.

isodump.py is in my Github beta repository.

The complete webinar is here, if you want to jump directly to the demo where I explain how to make a tool like isodump.py, go here.

Video: Maldoc Analysis With CyberChef

Filed under: maldoc,Malware,video — Didier Stevens @ 0:00

In this video, I show how to analyze a .doc malicious document using CyberChef only. This is possible, because the payload is a very long string that can be extracted without having to parse the structure of the .doc file with a tool like oledump.py.

I pasted the recipe on pastebin here.

Videos: Defective USB Cable

What is happening, is that this particular USB cable is electrically defective: the voltage drop is too large, due to the abnormally high resistance of the cable. The portapack doesn’t receive enough power, and starts to malfunction.

In the following 2 videos, I perform various tests with that defective cable:

Video: GNU Radio Companion: Acoustic Beats

Filed under: technology,video — Didier Stevens @ 13:39

In this video, I use GNU Radio Companion (without SDR) to illustrate the acoustic beat phenomenon.

I mention a 400Hz dial tone in this video, but this will vary by country.
