Cyberdefenders – MalDoc101 writeup

It is common for threat actors to utilize living off the land (LOTL) techniques, such as the execution of PowerShell to further their attacks and transition from macro code. This challenge is intended to show how you can often times perform quick analysis to extract important IOCs. The focus of this exercise is on static techniques for analysis.

Suggested Tools:

  • REMnux Virtual Machine (
  • Terminal/Command prompt w/ Python installed
  • Oledump
  • Text editor

En primer lugar vamos a instalar el software necesario para realizar el reto

Descargamos OLEDUMP

mkdir /opt/oledump
cd /opt/oledump

Instalamos oletools

pip install -U oletools

Cyberdefenders – DeepDive writeup

En esta entrada nuevamente vamos a resolver un reto de Cyberdefenders. Vamos concretamente DeepDive en la cual vamos a tener que realizar mediante Volatility un análisis forense.

Dado que mis conocimientos de Volatility y análisis forense es bajo me a parecido un reto muy difícil la cual me a ayudado a saber mas sobre el funcionamiento de la memoria.


You have given a memory image for a compromised machine. Analyze the image and figure out attack details.

Cyberdefenders – Bucket writeup


Welcome, Defender! As an incident responder, we’re granting you access to the AWS account called «Security» as an IAM user. This account contains a copy of the logs during the time period of the incident and has the ability to assume the «Security» role in the target account so you can look around to spot the misconfigurations that allowed for this attack to happen.


Your IAM credentials for the Security account:

  • Login:
  • Account ID: 322079859186
  • Username: security
  • Password: password
  • Secret Key: paVI8VgTWkPI3jDNkdzUMvK4CcdXO2T7sePX0ddF


The credentials above give you access to the Security account, which can assume the role of «security» in the Target account. You also have access to an S3 bucket, named flaws2_logs, in the Security account, that contains the CloudTrail logs recorded during a successful compromise
