OneNote Malware With ISO File

We recently stumbled upon this tweet by @Cryptolaemus1 about a malicious OneNote document with an embedded ISO file. Because of our recently released ISO Format package, we thought it would be interesting to analyze this malware sample with Cerbero Suite.

SHA256: 2B0B2A15F00C6EED533C70E89001248A0F2BA6FAE5102E1443D7451A59023516

The unidentified embedded object in the OneNote document is an ISO file.

Reversing Complex PowerShell Malware

In this post we’re going to analyze a multi-stage PowerShell malware, which gives us an opportunity to use our commercial PowerShell Beautifier package and its capability to replace variables.

Sample SHA2-256: 2840D561ED4F949D7D1DADD626E594B9430DEEB399DB5FF53FC0BB1AD30552AA

Interestingly, the malicious script is detected by only 6 out of 58 engines on VirusTotal.

PowerShell Beautifier 2.0 Package

We have released version 2.0 of our commercial PowerShell Beautifier package. The new release adds the option to remove unused variables.

For example, this is a snippet of a malicious script:

$T = 'Get'
$M = $T + 'Method'
$I = 'Invoke'
$T = $T + 'Type'
$L = 'Load'
$Q0 = [Reflection.Assembly]
$B = $Q0::$L($MyS)
$B = $B.$T('NewPE2.PE')
$B = $B.$M('Execute')

$Ub = 'C:\Windows\Microsoft'
$z = $Ub + '.NET\Framewor'
$VT = $z + 'k\v4.0.30'
$XQ = $VT + '319\RegSvcs.exe'
$B = $B.$I($null,[object[]] ($XQ,$serv))

With both variable replacement and removal of unused variables enabled it becomes:

$load_result = [Reflection.Assembly]::Load($x_result)
$get_type_result = $load_result.GetType('NewPE2.PE')
$get_method_result = $get_type_result.GetMethod('Execute')
$invoke_result = $get_method_result.Invoke($null, [object[]]('C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\RegSvcs.exe', $x_result_2))

TAR Format Package

We have released the “TAR Format” package for all licenses of Cerbero Suite Standard and Advanced.

The package is also exposed to the SDK:

from Pro.Core import *
from Pkg.TAR import *

def parseTARArchive(fname):
    c = createContainerFromFile(fname)
    if c.isNull():
    obj = TARObject()
    if not obj.Load(c) or not obj.ParseArchive():
    curoffs = None
    while True:
        entry, curoffs = obj.NextEntry(curoffs)
        if entry == None:
        # skip directories
        if obj.IsDirectory(entry):
        print("file name:",, "file offset:", str(entry.offset_data), "file size:", str(entry.size))
        # retrieves the file data as NTContainer
        fc = obj.GetEntryData(entry)
