Examine Malicious OLE Files - preventing zero day attacks

Microsoft developed OLE technology to combine documents to other objects which hackers also noticed so they tried to use the feature for their own benefit. they tried some micro word 2010 and rich text document also. Let's see how to see a Valid vs a Malicious DOC file.

Are You Ready ?

first create a valid test.doc file which i also created named as Test file.doc i.e micro word document. now its time to perform a quick mimefile analysis on the file, 

ole file analysis -d filename

once i figured out the file is text/plain i just grabbed the and tried to find its headers, macros and all the possible information i can get.

Malicious OLE files analysis -d filename

now in order to see what is in the above section i looked at its meta data using -M option and below are the results.

metadata of Given File.

Infecting the File

now let's infect the file using this exploit

malicious ole file
malfunctioning the file

and once it's been altered, now let's examine the same file using above given commands and see what do we get.
after malfunctioning file

this is what we get.  okay now let's try HexEditor to get what is in the file.

examine malicious ole file

can you see the slutfuck written there highlighted ? i didn't wroe that in the original file :|. anyways we can see some garbage, i just found some 414141 sequence in the garbage so it confirms the AAAA usage to write an exploit. Hmmmm.. looks suspicious ?? 

41414141 bof

okay i've another thing in mind. why don't we try to scan the file using Online virustotal ? let's do it.


can you see ? im sure enough now you got the point. we can perform more analysis to find out the working and flow of exploit which definitely we're going to do later. hope you enjoyed it. below is the video for dummies.

Please Leave your Suggestion !
