ShadowBrokers NSA Tool Dump

On Friday, April 14, 2017 – The mysterious hacking group ShadowBrokers released over 300MB of NSA hacking tools and exploits. The dump is hosted as a Yandex disk with password “Reeeeeeeeeeeeeee”. The current dump contains 3 folders oddjob, windows, swift as described below, and a detailed list of the contents can be found here.

oddjob An implant builder
windows Exploits, supporting resources and exploit framework similar to Metasploit
swift SQL scripts for querying SWIFT data from databases

Most of the windows exploits are organized in a 3 file system .exe, .fb and .xml file. The .fb file lists the options supported by the exploit, and the XML file is used as a configuration file for the exploit.

The .fb file listing options supported by ETERNALROMANCE are:

Below are some of the exploits that are in the spotlight and/or have been successfully tested. This list will be updated as we investigate further .

* We are in the process of verifying if the exploit works for this platform

Fuzzbunch is an exploitation framework similar to Metasploit that is used to run exploits against target machines. The framework is executed via The framework requires python 2.6 to function, later versions of python seem to fail due a dependency on python26.dll in one of the .pyd files. Fuzzbunch is compatible on 32- and 64-bit architectures. It provides a console-based interface for collecting exploit configuration.

Upon selecting an exploit Fuzzbunch automatically collects information about the targets and parameters for the exploit.

A command & control tool used for post exploitation monitoring and controlling. The tool provides utilities for generating payloads in form of dll’s and exe’s for injection into target machines processes among other things.


Below are the supported commands.

As mentioned earlier the tool is also used to generate payloads to use with Doublepulsar.

DanderSpritz ships with module PeddleCheap used to connect and listen  to target machine. It can also be used to trigger exploits on target machines.


MSRC Update:
The Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) has released a statement addressing the exploits released by ShadowBrokers. MSRC has assured us that most of the exploits are already patched. In addition to the ones listed below some of the exploits do not reproduce on supported platforms, therefore customers running Windows 7 and latest versions of Windows or Exchange Server 2010 (EnglismansDentist) are not vulnerable.

Exploit Patch
EternalBlue Addressed by MS17-010
EmeraldThread Addressed by MS10-061
EternalChampion Addressed by CVE-2017-0146 & CVE-2017-0147
ErraticGopher Addressed prior to the release of Windows Vista
EsikmoRoll Addressed by MS14-068
EternalRomance Addressed by MS17-010
EducatedScholar Addressed by MS09-050
EternalSynergy Addressed by MS17-010
EclipsedWing Addressed by MS08-067

Based on our initial analysis many exploits appear to be zero-day vulnerabilities, i.e. issues where there are no patches from the vendor. In addition to that, many exploits affect end-of-life software for which vendors will not release patches.  A good mitigation step is to disable SMB service as many exploits are targeting various versions of SMB.  We request organizations to keep track of patches released by the respective vendors and upgrade their end-of-life software.

An update for the Metasploit framework adds  a new more reliable exploit for EternalRomance, EternalChampion, EternalSynergy. If successful an attacker can target machines listed below.
