win.zeroevil (Back to overview)



ZeroEvil is a malware that seems to be distributed by an ARSguarded VBS loader.

It first connects to a gate.php (version=). Upon success, an embedded VBS gets started connecting to logs_gate.php (plugin=, report=).
So far, only one embedded VBS was observed: it creates and starts a PowerShell script to retrieve all password from the Windows.Security.Credentials.PasswordVault. Apart from that, a screenshot is taken and a list of running processes generated.

The ZeroEvil executable contains multiple DLLs, sqlite3.dll, ze_core.DLL (Mutex) and ze_autorun.DLL (Run-Key).
