WannaCry|WannaDecrypt0r NSA-Cyberweapon-Powered Ransomware Worm

  • Virus Name: WannaCrypt, WannaCry, WanaCrypt0r, WCrypt, WCRY
  • Vector: All Windows versions before Windows 10 are vulnerable if not patched for MS-17-010. It uses EternalBlue MS17-010 to propagate.
  • Ransom: between $300 to $600. There is code to 'rm' (delete) files in the virus. Seems to reset if the virus crashes.
  • Backdooring: The worm loops through every RDP session on a system to run the ransomware as that user. It also installs the DOUBLEPULSAR backdoor. It corrupts shadow volumes to make recovery harder. (source: malwarebytes)
  • Kill switch: If the website www.iuqerfsodp9ifjaposdfjhgosurijfaewrwergwea.com is up the virus exits instead of infecting the host. (source: malwarebytes). This domain has been sinkholed, stopping the spread of the worm. Will not work if proxied (source).

// This program runs another program in a "fishbowl" set to the
// current working directory. The idea is that the subprocess
// should only be able to edit files in that path or anything
// descended from it. It can read outside the fishbowl but if it
// attempts to create or edit files outside of it that syscall
// is blocked (by switching it to getpid which does nothing).
//
// A malicious program can bypass the fishbowl using threads to
// make a syscall and then swap the path after verification.
// This is not a security tool, it is just to protect against
