So you want to download some releases from snd? alright let's see at snd.webscene.ir, the distribution section menu contain a link pointing at hxtps://keygens.pro/Super, looks like there a lot of cracks over here! and the site is virus free, right?
The archive is password protected and contain only one file "setup_pass-123.exe"If we try to download some other random files from the keygens.pro collection, sometime we have variations.e.g: Any.video.converter.Ultimate.keygen-URET hxtps://keygens.pro/crack/733508/ who contain a 'readme.txt' but we still have our suspicious setup_pass-123.exe inside.antiviruses aren't really happy about the file when sent to virustotal, but hey, it's kind of normal it's a crack afterall.The file in question is identified massively as 'remcos' (avira, kaspersky, f-secure,..) remcos is a know trojan, and this time they have right.I've sent the file to my capev2 (like cuckoo sandbox but with python3) who also identified it as remcos, and even exactly version 2.7.0 Pro.
And what's was the 'screenshot.png' he created and then deleted? this:one of my capev2 vm, the malware have a bit oversized the screenshot tought.The file sniff keystrokes, harvest/steal private information from browsers and messenger clients, take screenshots from pc and webcam if connected, and installs itself for autorun at startup, yep that not really what we where looking for.Alright... let's search for another site then..We type "download crack" on google and we are now on keygenninja.com (former KeygenGuru) according to them.site is in second result in google main page, the authors of the sites play on search engine rankings, .. and are extremely well positioned (they pay Google for that)
We click the 'Download Keygen' button and get redirected on another site hxtps://cracknet.net/d/a95b2bff8a272ss9p.htmlNow we are on a page with 2 big 'download' buttons, the text indicate also that the archive password is 12345When you click on the button the download is launched, but from another external site: hxtps://get.ziplink.xyz/
Well, we have 3 files in the archive, one executable, and unless keygens.pro, this time we have the info files (nfo and diz file), apparently a release from team inferno (a cracking group who disbanded in 2006)The nfo says it was released in may 2020 and the files timestamp seem from 2020, is inferno back ?
In conclusion: never open or visit crack sites if you don't have the knowledge to avoid infections, use common sense as some will even try to trick you with fake nfo/fake releases.Maybe buy your softwares (or crack them yourself) to avoid that, and don't trust crack sites at all, even if they was 'legitimate' like keygens.pro, they can go rogue anytime.
Well i haven't looked a lot on keygens.pro as remcos don't really interest me at all, but funny that "if crack not found then get a trojan"i looked a bit more on cracknet.net, and when i was saying "I thinks it's a false positive for 'azorult' malware familly" yep. it appear to be Elysium Stealer/Zeromax Stealer/yahooylo.some log from the vm, that was tried to be exfiltrated to the cnc:
Meanwhile, 18.104.22.168 (crackinns.com, torrentheap.com, crackheaps.com, cracknets.net, cracksnet.net, cracknet.net, keygenit.net, keygenom.net, cracksgurus.com, keygenninja.com, serialms.com, mackeygens.com, mediagetsite.com, get.ziplink.xyz, get.ziplink.stream) are still spreading malware.Abuse sent too, but nothing followed for the moment, so here is some insight about their infra in the meantime (when all else fails, crowbar the fornicationer)Embedded mini-admin panel to administrate the fake sites, allow them to disable links, blacklist keywords on site, redirect on affil, etc..
Me personally never had any issue with keygens.pro (well, at least I checked some of my old releases and they are not altered). The whole situation is quite sad, because end-users blame crackers for making/spreading viruses but the crackers have nothing to do with the malware
I tried to look at the new shenanigan of keygens.pro but that thing just wont run on my systems.SetupPass-123.exe - 468f3af5f80792d566b0601ed58e429fca80addax64 file, vs2015 runtime on import, and also "vcruntime140_1.dll" for one function (?!)the same file can be observed also in the wild at: hxxp://cuckoorental.com/backup.exesome news also about cracknet: seem they now use their domain 'crackheap' as gateway to replace cracknet.they also renewed their vidar license, as it's being used as payload in their latest malware, from the last run of today: -5a58-4241-94c5-1e119668831d/ (the 'Vbox.exe' process)
A group called KoreLogic used to hold DEFCON competitions to see how well people could crack password hashes. Their contest files are still posted on their site and it offers a great sample set of hashes to begin with.
This expands into 19 different hashdumps including des, md5, and ntlm type encryption. Each of the 19 files contains thousands of password hashes. This should be a great data set to test our cracking capabilities on.
It tries hundreds of variations of the username. It tries this password on all hashes in your file so the more usernames you give it, the greater chance of it finding something in the single crack mode.
According to the official website, Cain & Abel is a password recovery tool for Microsoft Operating Systems. It allows easy recovery of various kinds of passwords by sniffing the network, cracking encrypted passwords using Dictionary, Brute-Force and Cryptanalysis attacks, recording VoIP conversations, decoding scrambled passwords, recovering wireless network keys, revealing password boxes, uncovering cached passwords and analyzing routing protocols.
The latest version is faster and contains a lot of new features like APR (ARP Poison Routing) which enables sniffing on switched LANs and Man-in-the-Middle attacks. The sniffer in this version can also analyze encrypted protocols such as SSH-1 and HTTPS and contains filters to capture credentials from a wide range of authentication mechanisms. The new version also ships routing protocols authentication monitors and routes extractors, dictionary and brute-force crackers for all common hashing algorithms and for several specific authentications, password/hash calculators, cryptanalysis attacks, password decoders and some not so common utilities related to network and system security.
Now create a file including a list of common usernames. I just prepared a short list for the demonstration purpose but in real, publicly available longer lists have been used to crack the credentials. Name it as you want:
FinFisher is such a complex piece of malware that, like other researchers, we had to devise special methods to crack it. We needed to do this to understand the techniques FinFisher uses to compromise and persist on a machine, and to validate the effectiveness of Office 365 ATP detonation sandbox, Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (Windows Defender ATP) generic detections, and other Microsoft security solutions.
One method known towork, once, is to start at one of the rear corners. The corner by the ethernet ports seems to work best. Gently flex the case and slightly separate the top from the bottom at the corner by lifting on, or inserting a fingernail or other thin object into, the crack above the antenna. While doing this insert the tip of a knife blade (upward, given the geometry as the unit normally sits) into the crack between the two halves along the side of the case toward the rear. This will force the pins in the top of the case outward, flex the tab protruding from the bottom of the case inward, and free the pins from the tab. If necessary the knife tip may be levered slightly toward the case interior after insertion. Due to the force separating the top of the case from the bottom near the antenna, the pins should pop out of the tab located on the case side near the rear, lift slightly upward, and remain free.
Offline password cracking, such as using an automated tool to try to crack a Windows Security Account Manager database or the contents of a Linux password shadow file (i.e., /etc/shadow), requires different tools, such as hashcat or John the Ripper.
This most likely requires administrative rights, that's why the chapter is found here and not in priv-esc. Once you have a hash you can move on to the Password Cracking-chapter where we discuss different techniques of cracking hashes. 59ce067264
