Threat: Win32.Ransom.BlueSky
Vulnerability: Arbitrary Code Execution
Description: The BlueSky ransomware looks for and executes arbitrary DLLs in its current working directory. Therefore, we can hijack a vuln DLL, execute our own code, control and terminate the malware pre-encryption. The exploit dll checks if the current directory is "C:\Windows\System32", if not we grab our own process ID and terminate. All basic tests were conducted successfully in a virtual machine environment.
Family: BlueSky
Type: PE32
MD5: 961fa85207cdc4ef86a076bbff07a409

PoC Video URL:

1) Compile the following C code as "CRYPTSP.dll" 32-bit
