Subject: [FD] REvil.Ransom / Code Execution

Discovery / credits: Malvuln - (c) 2022
Original source:

Threat: REvil.Ransom
Vulnerability: Code Execution
Description: REvil looks for and executes DLLs in its current directory.
Therefore, we can potentially hijack a vuln DLL execute our own code,
control and terminate the malware pre-encryption. The exploit dll will
check if the current directory is "C:\Windows\System32", if not we grab our
process ID and terminate. We do not need to rely on hash signature or
third-party product, the malware will do the work for us. Endpoint
protection systems and or antivirus can potentially be killed prior to
executing malware, but this method cannot as theres nothing to kill the DLL
just lives on disk waiting. From defensive perspective you can add the DLLs
to a specific network share containing important data as a layered
approach. All basic tests were conducted successfully in a virtual machine
Family: REvil
Type: PE32
MD5: 979635229dfcfae1aae74ae296ec78c8
SHA256: 03b5a7ffe111cca63fc687a295ba8075087cc90812f6b988797a2d49a5db1482
Vuln ID: MVID-2022-0581
Disclosure: 05/03/2022
Video Poc URL:

1) Compile the following C code as "netapi32.dll" 32bit
2) Place the DLL in same directory as the ransomware
3) Optional - Hide it: attrib +s +h "netapi32.dll"
4) Run the malware

#include "windows.h"
#include "stdio.h"
