Cuckoo Sandbox v0.4.2 available (Support for VMware added)

Cuckoo Sandbox is an Open Source software for automating analysis of suspicious files. To do so it makes use of custom components that monitor the behavior of the malicious processes while running in an isolated environment.

Cuckoo generates a handful of different raw data which include:

  • Native functions and Windows API calls traces
  • Copies of files created and deleted from the filesystem
  • Dump of the memory of the selected process
  • Screenshots of the desktop during the execution of the malware analysis
  • Network dump generated by the machine used for the analysis

In order to make such results more consumable to the end users, Cuckoo is able to process them and generate different type of reports, which could include:

  • JSON report
  • HTML report
  • MAEC report
  • MongoDB interface
  • HPFeeds interface
