Threat: Backdoor.Win32.Ketch.b
Vulnerability: Remote Stack Buffer Overflow

Description: Makes HTTP GET request for a file "script.dat", and writes the server response to temporary file named "watchb.tmp" under c:\Windows dir.
At 1032 bytes we overwrite the buffer which is about 1000 bytes, and sending 1,512 bytes we overwrite EIP. The watchb.tmp holds the response from the server.

Type: PE32
MD5: 9d7be3799594a82bf7056905f501af03
Vuln ID: MVID-2021-0019
Dropped files: watchb.tmp
ASLR: False
DEP: False
Safe SEH: True
Disclosure: 01/08/2021

Payload gets XOR's complicating things, uppercase gets converted to lowercase, "a" becomes 51 Q... "A" becomes q 71 so it is difficult to control chars for our needs.
Therefore, if we want to see the typical 41414141 exploit pattern overwriting EIP we would have to use the lowercase "q" character. After when it is XOR with 30
it will become 41.

At offset 004014CE, is where our payload is XOR'd with value of 30, and this would have to be taken into account.
004014CE | E8 5D FF FF FF | call backdoor.win32.ketch.b

Reversing the code responsible for payload character conversions e.g. "a" to "Q" and "q" to "A" which challenges exploitation.
