View Full Version : Interpreting Results

2008-03-11, 03:35
Just curious on how to go about understanding what the results from the Deep Scan mean. I have 2 objects but don't have any idea how to interpret them.

I was originally thinking my question would be one of those "Damn I should have known" type of things, but seeing as there have been 90 or so views with no replys maybe it wasn't so obvious.

If you stated what the "2 objects" are, perhaps someone could help.

md usa, I understand where you are coming from, I was actually looking for resources where I could go to do the research. I should have stated that better, but I just wanted to poke around and see what I could find out about the detections, then if I drew a blank I would have come back for an assist.

Since you suggested it though, I will post them here but if possible I am still looking for any resources to be able to help myself as well.

Sorry, didn't see the topic until now.

The only information I found about it:

MSDN: Enumerating Keywords (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa503756.aspx)
MSDN: Using Registry Values to Enable and Disable Task Offloading (http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa938424.aspx)

Seems to be about checksum calculation offloading; no idea why a rootkit should hide that; but registry paths are quite long and the shorter one just one character over 128; with two bytes per character that would be just over 256, a magical border that shouldn't have any effect here though. Overlength is a hidding trick, but not at this border - I just tested that both the registry supports keys of more length, and RootAlyzer as well.

You can see these two registry values through regedit.exe ?

Hi Pepi sorry about the delay, I saw your message but was at work.

I can see the registry entries in any registry editing program including the Windows regedit. I would be happy to send you the exported registry string (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet004\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002bE10318}) by PM or e-mail if you want to have a closer look at what all is included in there. Just let me know and I'll be happy to send that or whatever else you may need.

I think I found the problem. Have tested it on a dozen virtual machines and found one configuration where I could reproduce it. Have fixed it, works fine on this machine now, will continue a bit of testing and upload a new version later :)

I have an registry entry that RootAlyzer has found.
Here it is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Components\\

It looks like it is a part of an Adobe product.

Here is the Entry Under the Name column in the right hand of the Registry Editor Screen: AV141C35E9F4BF344B9F2010BB17F68A
The Registry Type is: REG_SZ
Here is the Data Value to the right of the Registry Editor screen: 02:\Software\Adobe\FeatureSubscriptions\DVAAdobeDocMeta\-{53C141BA-4F9E-43FB-B4F9-0C01BB716FA8}-\Registered

Located above these there is another Name, Type and Value. In the name field it says- (Default). In the Tpye field it Says REG_SZ. In the Data Field It says (value not set).

Is this registry entry that RootAlyzer shows as a rootkit safe or should I delete the entry from the Registry Editor?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

When I posted The post direcly above I saw that it didn't display the complete Registry entry that RootAlyzer found.
I am going to attempt to attach a file with the whole text of the Registry entry in it.

Could you please try the updated version 0.1.3 available here?

I'll test on a machine with Photoshop in the next days; I seem to remember Adobe had some ugly methods for their copy protection which I wouldn't wonder could even use rootkit methods.
