Multiple Layers of Anti-Sandboxing Techniques, (Tue, Oct 31st)

It has been a while that I did not find an interesting malicious Python script. All the scripts that I recently spotted were always the same: a classic intostealer using Discord as C2 channel. Today I found one that contains a lot of anti-sanboxing techniques. Let's review them. For malware, it's key to detect the environment where they are executed. When detonated inside a sandbox (automatically or, manually, by an Analyst), they will be able to change their behaviour (most likely, do nothing).

FujiFilm printer credentials encryption issue fixed

Many multi-function printers made by FujiFilm Business Innovation Corporation (Fujifilm) which includes Apeos, ApeosPro, PrimeLink and RevoriaPress brands as well as Xerox Corporation (Xerox) which includes VersaLink, PrimeLink, and WorkCentre brands, allow administrators to store credentials on them to allow users to upload scans and other files to FTP and SMB file servers. With the default configuration of these printers, it-s possible to retrieve these credentials in an encrypted format without authenticating to the printer. A vulnerability in the encryption process of these credentials means that you can decrypt them with responses from the web interface. This has been given the ID CVE-2023-46327.
