ADRecon: Active Directory Recon

ADRecon is a tool which extracts various artifacts (as highlighted below) out of an AD environment in a specially formatted Microsoft Excel report that includes summary views with metrics to facilitate analysis. The report can provide a holistic picture of the current state of the target AD environment. The tool is useful to various classes of security professionals like auditors, DIFR, students, administrators, etc. It can also be an invaluable post-exploitation tool for a penetration tester. It can be run from any workstation that is connected to the environment, even hosts that are not domain members. Furthermore, the tool can be executed in the context of a non-privileged (i.e. standard domain user) accounts. Fine Grained Password Policy, LAPS and BitLocker may require Privileged user accounts. The tool will use Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) if available, otherwise it will communicate with the Domain Controller using LDAP.

The following information is gathered by the tool: Forest; domains in the Forest and other attributes such as sites; domain password policy; domain controllers and their roles; users and their attributes; service principal names; groups and and their members; organizational units and their ACLs; group policy object details; DNS zones and records; printers; computers and their attributes; LAPS passwords (if implemented); and BitLocker Recovery Keys (if implemented).

Androsia - A Step Ahead in Securing Sensitive In-Memory Android Application Data

Each Android app runs in its own VM, with every VM allocated a limited heap size for creating new objects. Neither the app nor the OS differentiates between regular objects and objects that contain security sensitive information. The sensitive objects like any other object are kept around in the heap until the app hits a memory constraint. The OS then invokes the Dalvik garbage collector in order to reclaim memory from unreferenced objects on the heap and provides the reclaimed memory back to the app. However, there is no guarantee the objects containing security sensitive information will be cleared from memory. Even though objects might not be used ahead in the program, they might still be referenced directly or indirectly by a GC root which would prevent them from getting collected - a situation known as memory leak.

Android does not provide explicit APIs to reclaim memory from sensitive objects which are not "used" ahead in the program. "*" library does provide classes for holding sensitive data (like KeyStore.PasswordProtection) and API's (like destroy()) to remove sensitive content from the objects. However, the onus of calling these APIs is on the developer. Developers may invoke these APIs at a stage very late in the code or worst may even forget to invoke them. This leaves a window of time where the security critical objects, which are not used any further in the program, live in the heap memory and wait to be garbage collected. During this window, a compromise of the app can allow an attacker to read the credentials by dumping the heap memory. This is a needless risk every Android application lives with today.

We propose a tool called Androsia, which uses a summary based [1] inter-procedural data-flow analysis to determine the points in the program where security sensitive objects are last used (so that their content can be cleared). Androsia then performs bytecode transformation of the app to flush out the secrets resetting the objects to their default values.

Automated Penetration Toolkit (APT2)

Nearly every penetration test begins the same way - run a NMAP scan, review the results, choose interesting services to enumerate and attack/exploit, and perform post-exploitation activities. What was once a fairly time consuming manual process, is now automated! Automated Penetration Testing Toolkit (APT2) is an extendable modular framework designed to automate common tasks performed during penetration testing. APT2 can chain data gathered from different modules together to build dynamic attack paths. Starting with a NMAP scan of the target environment, discovered ports and services become triggers for the various modules which in turn can fire additional triggers. Have FTP, Telnet, or SSH? APT2 will attempt common authentication. Have SMB? APT2 determines what OS and looks for shares, null sessions, and other information. Modules include everything from enumeration, scanning, brute forcing, and even integration with Metasploit. Come check out how APT2 will save you time on every engagement.

Have you seen APT2 before? Great, now come and check out some of the new and enhanced features which include stream lined operations, additional modules, and improvements to the overall ease of module creation and development.

Cloud Security Suite - One Stop Tool for AWS/GCP Security Audit

Nowadays, cloud infrastructure is pretty much the de-facto service used by large/small companies. Most of the major organizations have entirely moved to cloud. With more and more companies moving to cloud, the security of cloud becomes a major concern. While AWS & GCP provides you protection with traditional security methodologies and has a neat structure for authorisation/configuration, its security is as robust as the person in charge of creating/assigning these configuration policies. As we all know, human error is inevitable and any such human mistake could lead to catastrophic damage to the environment.

A few vulnerable scenarios:
Your security groups, password policy or IAM policies are not configured properly

  • S3 buckets are world-readable
  • Web servers supporting vulnerable ssl ciphers
  • Ports exposed to public with vulnerable services running on them
  • If root credentials are used
  • Logging or MFA is disabled
  • And many more such scenarios...

Knowing all this, audit of AWS/GCP infrastructure becomes a hectic task! There are few open source tools that help AWS/GCP auditing, but none of them have an exhaustive checklist. Also, collecting, setting up all the tools, and looking at different result sets is a painful task. Moreover, while maintaining big infrastructures, system audit of server instances is a major task as well.

CS Suite is a one stop tool for auditing the security posture of the AWS/GCP infrastructure and does OS audits as well. CS Suite leverages current open-source tools capabilities and has other missing checks added into one tool to rule them all. CS-Suite also supports JSON output which can be consumed for further usage.

CyBot - Open-Source Threat Intelligence Chat Bot (World Tour)

Threat intelligence chat bots are useful friends. They perform research for you and can even be note takers or central aggregators of information. However, it seems like most organizations want to design their own bot in isolation and keep it internal. To counter this trend, our goal was to create a repeatable process using a completely free and open source framework, an inexpensive Raspberry Pi (or even virtual machine), and host a community-driven plugin framework to open up the world of threat intel chat bots to everyone from the home user to the largest security operations center.

We were thrilled to debut the end result of our research (a chat bot that we affectionately call CyBot) at Black Hat Arsenal Vegas. We took the great feedback and ideas from an enthusiastic crowd and brought CyBot to Black Hat Europe for more fun. Now we are bringing CyBot to Asia to complete the world tour by spreading the word and increasing global collaboration.

So, if you know even a little bit of Python, you can help write plugins and share them with the community. If you want to build your own CyBot, the instructions in this project will let you do so with about an hour of invested time and anywhere from $0-$35 in expenses. Come make your own threat intelligence bot today!

Faraday v3 - Collaborative Penetration Test and Vulnerability Management Platform

The idea behind Faraday is to help you to share all the information that is generated during a pentest, vulnerability assessment or scan without changing the way you work. You run a command, import a report, and Faraday will normalize the results and share them with the rest of the team in real-time. Faraday has more than 60 plugins available (and counting), including the most popular commercial and open-source tools. If you use a tool that Faraday doesn't have a plugin for, you can create your own! During this presentation we're going to release Faraday v3.0 with all the new features that we were working on for the last couple of months that include a huge back-end change. Come check it out!

Have you ever needed to rapidly create a Windows VM with all your analysis tools? Do you get annoyed by constantly having to update each and every security tool to the latest version in you VMs? Has your VM been not updated or patched for years on end? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you NEED the FLARE VM.

FLARE VM is the first of its kind freely available and open sourced Windows-based security distribution designed for reverse engineers, malware analysts, incident responders, forensicators, and penetration testers. Inspired by open-source Linux-based security distributions like Kali Linux, FLARE VM delivers a fully configured platform with a comprehensive collection of Windows security tools such as debuggers, disassemblers, decompilers, static and dynamic analysis utilities, network analysis and manipulation, web assessment, exploitation, vulnerability assessment applications, and many others.

FLARE VM comes in three flavors – Malware Analysis, Incident Response, and Penetration Testing editions. Each edition targets a specific task. For example, FLARE VM - Malware Analysis Edition is optimized for and contains tools specifically for reverse engineering malware. The tools included with FLARE VM distribution were either developed or carefully selected by the members of the FLARE (FireEye Labs Advanced Reverse Engineering) Team who have been reverse engineering malware, analyzing exploits and vulnerabilities, and teaching malware analysis classes for over a decade.

The security distribution works as an easily deployable package that you can install on an existing Windows installation. FLARE VM brings a familiar, easy to manage package management system to quickly deploy and customize the platform to suite your specific needs. After the initial installation, you can easily add, remove and update packages in the FLARE VM package repository.

During the session attendees will be familiarized with different tools, plug-ins and scripts offered on the FLARE VM to do the following:

  • How to go from a basic Windows installation to a fully deployed FLARE VM ready to analyze malware and conduct security assessments in 30 minutes or less.
  • Perform basic static analysis of a real malware sample to gather basic indicators.
  • Run the malware sample in a safe manner in order to manually gather dynamic indicators by simulating a complete network environment and carefully observing malware behavior with a variety of tools and techniques.
  • Deep dive into malware inner workings by using a number of disassemblers and decompilers available on the system.
  • Advanced dynamic analysis and generic unpacking techniques using debuggers, various plugins, and other tools that come with the distribution.
  • Learn how to customize the VM, create new packages and your own custom editions using the FLARE VM package repository.

Bring a Windows 7+ Virtual Machine to easily participate in the hands-on section of the demo.

The FireEye Labs Obfuscated String Solver (FLOSS) is an open source tool that automatically detects, extracts, and decodes obfuscated strings in Windows Portable Executable (PE) files. Malware analysts, forensic investigators, and incident responders can use FLOSS to quickly extract sensitive strings to identify indicators of compromise (IOCs).

Malware authors encode strings in their programs to hide malicious capabilities and impede reverse engineering. Even simple encoding schemes defeat the 'strings' tool and complicate static and dynamic analysis. FLOSS uses advanced static analysis techniques, such as emulation, to deobfuscate encoded strings.

FLOSS is extremely easy to use and works against a large corpus of malware. It follows a similar invocation as the 'strings' tool. Users that understand how to interpret the strings found in a binary will understand FLOSS's output. FLOSS extracts higher value strings, as strings that are obfuscated typically contain the most sensitive configuration resources – including C2 server addresses, names of dynamically resolved imports, suspicious file paths, and other IOCs. I will describe the computer science that powers the tool, and why it works. I will also show how to use FLOSS and demonstrate the decoding of strings from a wide variety of malware families.

GyoiThon is a growing penetration test tool using Deep Learning. Deep Learning improves classification accuracy in proportion to the amount of learning data. Therefore, GyoiThon will be taking in new learning data during every scan. Since GyoiThon uses various features of software included in HTTP response as learning data, the more you scan, the more the accuracy of software detection improves. For this reason, GyoiThon is a growing penetration test tool.

GyoiThon identifies the software installed on web server (OS, Middleware, Framework, CMS, etc...) based on the learning data. After that, GyoiThon executes valid exploits for the identified software. GyoiThon automatically generates reports of scan results. GyoiThon executes the above processing automatically.

GyoiThon consists of three engines:

  • Software analysis engine - It identifies software based on HTTP response obtained by normal access to web server using Deep Learning base and signature base.
  • Vulnerability determination engine - It collects vulnerability information corresponding to identify software by the software analysis engine. And, the engine executes an exploit corresponding to the vulnerability of the software and checks whether the software is affected by the vulnerability.
  • Report generation engine - It generates a report that summarizes the risks of vulnerabilities and the countermeasure.

Traditional penetration testing tools are very inefficient because they execute all signatures; however, unlike traditional penetration testing tools, GyoiThon is very efficient because it executes only valid exploits for the identified software. As a result, the user's burden will be greatly reduce, and GyoiThon will greatly contribute to the security improvement of many web servers.

Horus - Binary Library Security Scanning Engine

Horus is a scanning engine for mobile security mainly used to detect security risks of binary library, including detection of binary vulnerabilities and malicious behavior. Horus is currently used within Alipay Inc. It is designed as a rule-based framework. As many mobile apps use a large number of third-party libraries - such as libopenssl, libffmpeg and so on - Horus supports security detection of various types of binary libraries. New product or new task connects to it by calling the interface. By adding and removing defined rules (CVE,patch,txt), the user will get a distribution or matching statistic for vulnerability, backdoor or malicious activity, etc. Now,It matches rules at different level: binary function level, binary pattern level and binary instruction level.
Horus has resolved thousands of application security risks and help us improve the security of applications effectively and reliably. We want to open this security scanning engine through Arsenal. We hope to improve matching algorithms and performance of Horus in the future with more ai power inside. We also hope more and more security developers can work together to improve Horus.

Jackhammer - One Security Vulnerability Assessment/Management Tool

Jackhammer is an integrated tool suite that comes with out-of-the-box industry standard integrations. It is a first-of-its-kind tool that combines static analysis, dynamic web app analysis, mobile security, API security, network security, CMS security, AWS/Azure security tools, docker/container security, and vulnerability manager that gives a complete glimpse into security posture of the organization. Using this suite, even senior leadership can have a comprehensive view of their organization's security.

Why was it needed? Security, while being imperative for any organization, it is hard to comprehend by most of the developers. Security engineers need to scrutinize every service or app turning security analysis a time intensive and repetitive. What if there exists a tool that can empower everyone to test their code for vulnerabilities, automate security analysis, and show the overall security hygiene of the company?

How does it work? Jackhammer initiates various types of scans using existing proven tools and the results are consumed by onboard vulnerability manager. Unique dashboard presents intuitive interface giving the user a holistic view of the code base. The normalized reports are instantly accessible to developers, QAs, TPMs, and security personnel.

It can be plugged/integrated with:

  • CI systems and Git via hooks giving complete control over code commits
  • AWS/Azure account and can keep on scanning complete IP space in realtime
  • Additional commercial/open source tools within few minutes and manage those tools from jackhammer
  • Ticketing systems (like Jira)
  • slack/pagerduty for real time alerting in addition to SMS and emails

It creates a sandbox using dockers for every tool and scales the systems when the scan needs it and descale on completion of the scans. The spin-up and tear down is a completely automated process so no person needs to look at the resources making it inexpensive and cost-effective.

Mobile Security Framework - MobSF

puzzCode Make Backdoors Great Again!

puzzCode is a simple compiler based on mingw, written in C# to build windows applications in such a way that they can't be analysed by standard analysis tools (e.g. IDA, Ollydbg, x64dbg, Snowman Decompiler, etc.)

puzzCode is based on MinGW to compile C/C++ source code to assembly language while also obfuscating every instruction. puzzCode transforms each original instruction into obfuscated code by breaking each function into countless pieces.

The most important thing is that the executable (exe) file, once compiled by puzzCode will be undetectable by antivirus as it effectively will create a completely new application.
