Windows 7: Analysis on Unknown Malware - Assistance Requested

18 Feb 2013   #11

W7 Pro SP1 64bit

Doh! I meant to add that I think Jacee was saying to look for an exe file with some random name (e.g. twbos6h.exe)

...but I could be wrong - perhaps that was a literal reference to a file named Random.exe

Windows 7 64-bit

Either way nothing of the type was discovered. I would love to provide all the details I've garnered on it so far but I don't think this is the place for that. WUDFHost.exe was discovered in the Windows startup as a scheduled task which I quickly snuffed out, and the only other registry keys I've found are keys WUDFHost.exe used to store binary code to execute, again elements I have noted and wiped off. I am unfamiliar with anything else.

Btw, what I can say is this item isn't exactly that new, now that I realize it. I found the file timestamps show up at May 7 2012. That was the day when in desperation I foolishly sought out a Windows key finder to determine the cause of a Windows registration issue with a new installed system. The item wasn't to generate a Windows key or to use illegal keys but to merely extract the current existing key of a Windows installation so I could juxtapose it with the key it was supposed to have. Regardless, the application ended up being a trojan.

I disassembled it in IDA and found it uses anti-disassembly techniques so I couldn't go very far on it. It does look very suspect and I wouldn't doubt WUDFHost.exe is lurking within its seemingly random code.

Thanks again for the support. I'll try seeing what I can do about finding a community that is more accommodating for this kind of work, if it's even accessible.
