The Trojan has a new variant that is currently circling the web, which again attempts to disable Windows Defender on affected systems as seen in previous versions. Men, the latest variant of TrickBot has added new methods to ensure that the security program is disabled.

The new variant was discovered by MalwareHunterTeam and Vitali Kremez, and the security researchers succeeded in reverse-engineering its code.

TrickBot Trojan – Technical Details

Ved udførelse, TrickBot Trojan will start a loader to prepare the system by disabling Windows services and processes that belong to security programs.

It also contains the layer needed for communication with its command and control server.

I august 2018, a stealth code injection was introduced to TrickBot’s code. It will sleep the infection for 30 sekunder. Dette er en teknik, der kan unddrage signatur scanninger bruges af sikkerhedssoftware såsom anti-virus løsninger, sandkasse miljøer og virtuelle maskiner værter. Deres realtid motorer kan omgås eller helt fjernet af den skadelige kode.

The actual decryption of the obfuscated Trickbot Trojan is run after the stealth protection code has complete. Den 2018 version of the malware uses direct system calls which is similar to Flokibot, en variant af Zeus. This shows that the hackers behind the new Trickbot banking Trojan might have used several different code sources.

The latest variant of the banking Trojan has added the following methods to ensure that Windows Defender and Windows Defender and Microsoft Defender APT are disabled, som rapporteret af bleeping Computer. It should be noted that these methods are blocked by TamperProtection if it is enabled:

Add policies to SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Real-Time Protection for the following:
DisableBehaviorMonitoring: Disables behavior monitoring in Windows Defender.
DisableOnAccessProtection: Disables scanning when you open a program or file.
DisableScanOnRealtimeEnable: Disabled process scanning.
Configures the following Windows Defender preferences via PowerShell:
-DisableRealtimeMonitoring: Disables real time scanning.
-DisableBehaviorMonitoring: Same as above, except as a Windows Defender preference.
-DisableBlockAtFirstSeen: Disables Defender’s Cloud Protection feature.
-DisableIOAVProtection: Disables scans of downloaded files and attachments.
-DisablePrivacyMode: Disables privacy mode so all users can see threat history.
-DisableIntrusionPreventionSystem: Disables network protection for known vulnerability exploits.
-DisableScriptScanning: Disables the scanning of scripts.
-SevereThreatDefaultAction: Set the value to 6, which turns off automatic remediation for severe threats.
-LowThreatDefaultAction: Set the value to 6, which turns off automatic remediation for low threats.
-ModerateThreatDefaultAction: Set the value to 6, which turns off automatic remediation for moderate threats.

When the Trojan detects security software on the compromised system, it is set to configure a debugger via the Image File Execution Options Registry key. Through this action the debugger will launch prior to the program that is executed. In case the debugger is not found, the program will not be able to launch, forskerne forklarede.
