Ransom.LockBit MVID-2022-0572 Code Execution

Ransom.LockBit MVID-2022-0572 Code Execution
Posted May 2, 2022
Authored by malvuln | Site malvuln.com

LockBit ransomware looks for and executes DLLs in its current directory. This can potentially allow us to execute our own code, control and terminate the malware pre-encryption. The exploit DLL will check if the current directory is "C:\Windows\System32" and if not we grab our process ID and terminate. Endpoint protection systems and or antivirus can potentially be killed prior to executing malware, but this method cannot as there's nothing to kill the DLL that just lives on disk waiting. All basic tests were conducted successfully in a virtual machine environment.
