Having some free time, I managed to apply some minor fixed to the TraceHook – I also decided to publish it, by the way. If there will be any bug reports / improvement suggestions, I will be more motivated to return to its development http://j00ru.vexillium.org/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_wink.gif

TraceHook is a tiny application keeping track over processes and dumping them when necessary. It’s main objective is to handle various types of malware samples, launched inside a virtual environment (pure malware analysis purposes). Once you choose the executable to run, TraceHook creates the process and adds its PID to the “Controlled Processes’ List”. Every single child-process created by one of these already present in our list, is also being controlled. After all the manual steps are performed (triggering the malware’s core functionality) on the virtual machine, the application dumps the memory context of all the processes inside our controlled list, to separate files inside the hardcoded C:\dump path.

The engine itself is a kernel module (device driver), having a callback routine registered using the documented PspCreateProcessNotifyRoutine ("http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms802952.aspx")API. It works in the context of all processes, thus doesn’t need to inject any additional user-mode code anywhere.

A complete package (EXE + sources): TraceHook.zip ("http://j00ru.vexillium.org/blog/30_08_09/TraceHook.zip") (40kB)

An example of usage:

– User-mode TraceHook.EXE log –

Code:

– TODO –

*** TraceHook v0.0.1 –> v0.0.2

Code:
- Add a time interval option - the application would wait i.e. 1 minute and then automatically
dump the entire process tree, instead of waiting for the user's action
- Add a dumping path option (instead of fixed C:\dump)
- Change the ProcessList structure to sth based on LIST_ENTRY (safer solution ?)
As always, comments are welcome!
