Joe Sandbox Desktop

Automated Deep Malware Analysis for targeting Windows platforms

Joe Sandbox Desktop Joe Sandbox Desktop executes files and URLs fully automated in a controlled environment and monitors the behavior of applications and operating systems for suspicious activities. All activities are compiled into comprehensive and extensive analysis reports.

Analysis reports, which contain key information about potential threats, enable cyber-security professionals to deploy, implement and develop appropriate defense and protections.

Joe Sandbox Desktop enables you to install and use Joe Sandbox in your lab. Joe Sandbox Desktop analyzes any malware targeting Windows based operating systems.

Joe Sandbox Desktop Explained

Joe Sandbox Desktop Explained

Joe Sandbox Desktop's architecture is modular. It consists of at least one controller machine running Linux and multiple connected analysis machines (with Windows or Android installed) hosted by virtualization products such as VMware or VirtualBox. Users or a submission script sends files and URLs for analysis via the Joe Sandbox Desktop Web Interface to the controller's server. The Joe Sandbox Desktop server stores the submission in a local file database and forwards them to the connected analysis machines, where the submission is then executed.

Joe Sandbox Desktop's configurable and efficient dynamic and static analysis engine monitors any activities during the binary program execution and reports behavior data instantly to the controller. Click to read more about Joe Security's unique technologies to analyze binaries.

Evaluating results, statistics, activities and code functions are compiled into a detailed and well structured report.

Comprehensive Reports

Joe Sandbox Desktop generates very detailed analysis reports about system, network, browser and tampering/code manipulation behavior. The report includes evaluations and additional data about strings, domains and file structures. Matching generic signatures highlight suspicious and malicious key behavior. Classification and threat scores help to detect sophisticated cyber-attacks quickly. A context based search enables to quickly navigate.

Comprehensive Reports

All Files on all Platforms

Joe Sandbox Desktop enables analysis of all executable files (including malicious documents) on Windows 7, Windows W7 x64, Windows 10 and Windows 10 x64.

All Files on all Platforms

Analysis of Office Files

Joe Sandbox Desktop analyses Office files for Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Hangul Hancom (Korean Office) and Ichitaro (Japanese Office). Support for additional Office suites can be easily added.

933+ Generic and Open Behavior Signatures

Joe Sandbox Desktop uses a growing set of over 933+ generic Behavior Signatures to detect and classify malicious behavior activities such as Exploiting and Shellcode (for malicious documents), Persistence, Boot Survival, Spreading, Data Spying and Leakage and C&C Communication. Behavior Signatures are extendable and customizable and optionally are shared within a community.

933+ Generic and Open Behavior Signatures

Virtual and Physical Analysis Systems

Joe Sandbox Desktop enables to use a mix of virtual and physical analysis machines for analysis. Physical machines are very helpful in order to deal with evasive malware which may not run on virtual systems.

Virtual and Physical Analysis Systems

Yara

Joe Sandbox Desktop allows to use Yara Rules for advanced malware detection. Joe Sandbox Desktop forwards all samples, downloaded files, resources as well as memory dumps to Yara. In addition Joe Sandbox Desktop features a nice web based Yara Rule editor. Tired of updating Yara rules? Joe Sandbox Desktop enables to automatically synchronize with GitHub repositories contain Yara rules.

Yara

Yara Rule Generation

Joe Sandbox Desktop creates various Yara rules based on static, dynamic and hybrid behavior data. The generated Yara rules allow to identify specific malware, malware families and malware variants. Yara Rule Generator uses sophisticated data rating and clustering algorithms.

Dynamic VBA Instrumentation

Joe Sandbox Desktop’s instrumentation engine enables monitoring any method or API call of VBA Macros embedded in Microsoft Office files (doc, docx, docxm, etc). The extracted dynamic information allows to detect and understand decrypted routines (via colored call graph), payload URLs and evasions. Moreover customer can add their own Pre and Post hooks to modify function parameters and return values.

Dynamic VBA Instrumentation


Dynamic JS Instrumentation

Joe Sandbox Desktop’s instrumentation engine enables monitoring any method or API call (including arguments, returns etc) of a Javascript file. The extracted dynamic information allows to detect and understand decrypted routines (via colored call graph), payload URLs and evasions.

Dynamic JS Instrumentation

Analyses Hidden Payloads

Joe Sandbox Desktop's Hybrid Code Analysis (HCA) engine identifies code functions based on dynamic memory dumps. HCA enables in-depth analysis of malware by understanding hidden payloads, malicious functionality not seen during runtime analysis. HCA results are highly annotated and connected to dynamic behavior information. Through an advanced algorithm, HCA identifies hidden API calls and hidden strings within codes.

Analyses Hidden Payloads

Execution Graphs

Joe Sandbox Desktop generates highly condensed control flow graphs, so called Execution Graphs. Execution Graphs enable to detect evasions against malware analysis systems. Furthermore Execution Graphs allow to rate the behavior by looking at API chains, execution coverage and loops. Joe Sandbox Desktop also includes extensive library code detection.

Execution Graphs

SSL Proxy

Joe Sandbox Desktop enables to inspect HTTPS traffic. Similiar to a next generation firewall Joe Sandbox Desktop installs a MITM SSL Proxy which intercepts and analyzes any SSL traffic. This allows to inspect malicious HTTPS C&C traffic which is often used in APTs.

SSL Proxy

IDS Network Analysis

Joe Sandbox Desktop enables to analyze automatically the network data via Snort and "The Bro Network Security Monitor". Snort with e.g. Emerging Threats ETOpen/ETPro rules detects malicious IPs, Domains or other network artifacts and Files extracted by Bro are automatically uploaded to Joe Sandbox.

IDS Network Analysis

Extensive supplementary Analysis Data

In addition to analysis reports in HTML, XML and JSON formats, Joe Sandbox Desktop captures and generates supplementary data. This includes created files, unpacked PE files, memory dumps, PCAP of the captured network traffic, screenshots, shellcode and strings.

Extensive supplementary Analysis Data

Reports provided in all relevant Formats

Joe Sandbox Desktop reports are provided in all relevant export formats, ranging from common data exchange formats (XML, JSON) and document types (HTML, PDF) to malware security standards such as MAEC, CybOX, MISP and OpenIOC. Therefore, Joe Sandbox Desktop reports can be seamlessly integrated with other tools and platforms.

Reports provided in all relevant Formats

Third Party Integrations

Joe Sandbox Desktop has many Third Party Integrations. Detection results from Virustotal and MetaDefender are visualized in the analysis report. Joe Sandbox Desktop also integrates with Incident Response Solutions such as TheHive, Fame, MISP and CRITs. You can also use Joe Sandbox Desktop in Phantom the Security Automation & Orchestration Platform.

Third Party Integrations

RestFul WEB API

Joe Sandbox Desktop allows for seamless integration into existing threat intelligence systems. It has a simple RestFul WEB API which enables file upload, analysis data download, searches, filters, alerts and more. Example scripts in Python allow a fast integration.

RestFul WEB API

Seamless IDA Integration

Joe Sandbox Desktop delivers an IDA plugin which loads supplementary analysis data such as memory dumps and reconstructed PE files. Moreover the plugin enriches IDA code with dynamic information such as APIs, chunks, strings and function arguments. IDA integration enables to deeply understand und further investigate malicious code with the power of IDA.

Seamless IDA Integration
