Windows 7: Using Curl to Retrieve Malicious Websites.

20 Jan 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Using Curl to Retrieve Malicious Websites.

Here's how to use Curl to download potentially-malicious websites, and why you may want to use this tool instead of the more-common Wget.

Curl and Wget are excellent command-line tools for Windows and Unix. They can download remote files and save them locally without attempting to display or render them. As the result, these tools are handy for retrieving files from potentially malicious website for local analysis--the small feature-set of these utilities, compared to traditional Web browsers, minimizes the vulnerability surface.

Both Curl and Wget support HTTP, HTTPS and FTP protocols, and allow the user to define custom HTTP headers that malicious websites may examine before attempting to attack the visitor (more on that below). Curl also supports other protocols you might find useful, such as LDAP and SFTP; however, these protocols are rarely used by analysts when examining content and code of malicious websites.
