I previously wrote an article on how to potentially detect SysCall hooking from C# so the operator can make an informed decision on whether to migrate processes or whether EDR will have a good chance at detecting their malicious activities. In order to write this post I have read through many great resources by otherContinue reading “Understanding SysCalls Manipulation”

But why does this matter? Situational awareness is critical to theContinue reading “SharpEDRChecker”

Worried about EDR hooking catching you out?

This post and subsequent code snippets will help you quickly assess whether EDR is loaded into your process (without a debugger) and performing user-level hooking on important functions that you may wish to use, e.g. process migration using ZwOpenProcess and ZwCreateThreadEx. When red teaming in a new environment we always need to perform situation awareness.Continue reading “Worried about EDR hooking catching you out?”
