MAN1: Tracking the Crypter and the Actor

Authors: Jason Reaves
Comments: 24 Pages. Malware Research; PE Cryptor

In the world of malware crypters and packers are often time considered throwaway by researchers, it’s also fairly common to use them as training tools for junior personnel. In a way most obfuscations are treated as training, learning or for games like CTF(Capture The Flag). So it’s probably not surprising that lots of researchers don’t pay much attention to these layers. These layers can be used especially when you find some of the more sophisticated ones that tend to stick around for longer periods of time. While probably not as useful as tracking an actor to a backend system, these malware artifacts can provide valuable clues, serving as tools, techniques and procedures (TTPs) in tracking the ongoing operations of a specific threat actor across a wide range of operations and groups. In this case, we focus on MAN1, a sophisticated crypter dating back to 2014 that's still in use today.

The Primary Factors of Biological Evolution

Authors: Max Null, Sergey Belov
Comments: 17 Pages.

The article discusses the theory of biological evolution. The concepts "primary factors of evolution" (natural factors) and "secondary factors of evolution" (the result of evolution itself) are defined. The terms of the theory of evolution "struggle for existence", "selection" and others are considered from the point of view of the interpretation of facts. In order for the theory of evolution to be complete and as objective as possible, it must be based on primary factors, and interpretations should be kept to a minimum. The article discusses Darwin's theory and the modern theory of evolution in the context of these problems. An attempt is made to eliminate the concept of "the struggle for existence", which leads to the following results. A new concept of "realizing the purpose to exist" has been obtained, which is an analogue of the concept of "the struggle for existence (in a wide sense)". It is substantiated that the realization of the purpose to exist is the result of evolution (that is, the secondary factor), is the main characteristic of all living organisms (can be considered as the primary factor in the context of the living), that is, distinguishes the living from the nonliving. Realization of the purpose to exist in some conditions may take the form of a struggle, which in everyday life is usually understood as a struggle for existence (in the narrow sense). It is substantiated that such behavior is an adaptation that appeared in the process of evolution and can be regulated by means of more complex behavior, which is also an adaptation. The physical bases of biological evolution are also considered on the basis of external measures of existence.
