Permanent link Tool: XDMonitor

TypeReconnaissance, Backdoor, Info stealer, Exfiltration
Description(ESET) XDMonitor is intended to monitor the machine’s activity. It monitors when removable drives are inserted by creating a new hidden window and registering it for device notification (using RegisterDeviceNotificationW and the GUID GUID_DEVINTERFACE_DISK). When a new drive is inserted, it crawls it recursively. When a file with an interesting extension (the same list as for XDList) is found, it encrypts it using RC4 (the hard-coded key is 1234123412341234) and uploads it to the C&C server.
It also takes a screenshot every minute. Unlike the screenshots taken by XDList, the image is not encrypted and is stored in %TEMP%\tmp%YEAR%%MONTH%%DAY%_%TICK_COUNT%.s. The screenshot is uploaded to the C&C immediately after being taken.
Finally, XDMonitor sends regular debug messages to the C&C server.
