Hello back. Hey thanks for the reply and not a flame.
These were not submitted to any AV vendors since Norton did flag
them. In the past I have submitted unknown trojans/ viruses like
these to Symantec when clients have been owned, but what can I say
they are hardly 0day more like 300 day.
The programs that were used when first found were “Hex Workshop”
and “IDA”. The other way they were confirmed was with the packer
used to compress the file after the string seg000:00003ABD 0000000C
C \bPECompact2 was located. Cool thing with PECompact2 is it will
also tell you if it was packed with the tool.
Path: C: \wytgp.exe
This module is compressed by PECompact2.
Could you share your methodology on how you go about reverse
engineering/ disassembling a malicious piece of code that has had a
packer ran on it?
