Bitdefender Malformed Archive Bypass

Bitdefender Malformed Archive Bypass
Posted Jan 10, 2020
Authored by Thierry Zoller

The parsing engine for various Bitdefender products supports the RAR archive format. The parsing engine can be bypassed by specifically manipulating an RAR Archive (HOST_OS) so that it can be accessed by an end-user but not the anti-virus software. The AV engine is unable to scan the archive and issues the file a "clean" rating.

II. Description
=================
The parsing engine supports the RAR archive format. The parsing engine
can be bypassed by specifically manipulating an RAR Archive (HOST_OS) so
that it can be accessed by an end-user but not the Anti-Virus software.
The AV engine is unable to scan the archive and issues the file a
"clean" rating.

I may release further details after all known vulnerable vendors have
patched their products.


III. Impact
=================
Impacts depends on the contextual use of the product and engine within
the organisation of a customer. Gateway Products (Email, HTTP Proxy etc)
may allow the file through unscanned and give it a clean bill of health.
Server side AV software will not be able to discover any code or sample
contained within this ISO file and it will not raise suspicion even if
you know exactly what you are looking for (Which is for example great to
hide your implants or Exfiltration/Pivot Server).

There is a lot more to be said about this bug class, so rather than bore
you with it in this advisory I provide a link to my 2009 blog post
http://blog.zoller.lu/2009/04/case-for-av-bypassesevasions.html

IV. Patch / Advisory
=================
If you are an enterprise customer I would suggest to reach out to
Bitdefender to discuss how you can be notified about patched
vulnerabilities within their products. Some releases may requires binary
updates that cant be pulled from the auto-update.

amsiscan.dll >24.0.14.74

For Users of the OEM Partners (G-Data, Vipr, etc) I would suggest to get
in contact to ensure these vulnerabilities are patched or not present in
their offering. I would also suggest discussing how you can be made
aware of future patches.
