A malware sandbox is where an analyst can run and observe a malware’s behavior. A malware sandbox can be a single system or a network of systems designed solely to analyze malware during runtime. LINGO Malware sandbox, malware test environment, and dynamic analysis lab are different names given to a system where malware is executed for the purpose of analysis. indd 7 02/07/15 4:43 PM AppDev / Advanced Malware Analysis / Christopher Elisan / 974-6 / Chapter 1 8 Part I: Malware Blueprint Unlike static analysis, dynamic analysis is a high-risk, high-reward process.
A typical static data analysis pre-processing determines the following: ▶▶ ▶▶ ▶▶ ▶▶ Has the file been processed before? Does it match any known benign files? Does it match any known malicious files? Does it require any special sandbox implementations? The first two are the most common reasons for a file to be dropped and not processed by the automated malware analysis system anymore. Answering the first two questions is made possible by identifying duplicate files and having a whitelist database as part of the automated malware analysis implementation.
An analyst must be familiar with how malware behaves, how malware operates to stay persistent, how malware protects itself, and how malware manipulates the target environment for it to execute its directives. In reality, malware analysis may not reveal all the information about the malware because of the known limitations of malware analysis and because of the sophistication and difficulty level of the malware. The analyst may get only bits and pieces of data that she needs to connect together and make sense of.
