Configuring a Windows Domain to Dynamically Analyze an Obfuscated Lateral Movement Tool


We recently encountered a large obfuscated malware sample that offered several interesting analysis challenges. It used virtualization that prevented us from producing a fully-deobfuscated memory dump for static analysis. Statically analyzing a large virtualized sample can take anywhere from several days to several weeks. Bypassing this time-consuming step presented an opportunity for collaboration between the FLARE reverse engineering team and the Mandiant consulting team which ultimately saved many hours of difficult reverse engineering.
