Abstract

We wrote an article about the dropper used by Red October available here: http://code.google.com/p/malware-lu/wiki/en_malware_redoctober. At the end of this article we got a file called svchost.exe and the file wsdktr.ltd . This file was first packed with a custom packer and secondly packed with UPX. Once we unpacked this file, we get a file with the md5: 5f38e180671fe1d86009d730687a0e3e. This binary is used to decrypt the file wsdktr.ltd. Today (14th January of 2013), Karspersky started to make the buzz around an ultimate new APT. The malware targets diplomatic, governmental and scientific research organizations in different countries, mostly related to the region of Eastern Europe, former USSR members and countries in Central Asia.
