Discovery / credits: Malvuln (John Page aka hyp3rlinx) (c) 2022 Original source: Contact: Media: Threat: Win32.Ransom.BlueSky Vulnerability: Arbitrary Code Execution Description: The BlueSky ransomware looks for and executes arbitrary DLLs in its current working directory. Therefore, we can hijack a vuln DLL, execute our own code, control and terminate the malware pre-encryption. The exploit dll checks if the current directory is "C:\Windows\System32", if not we grab our own process ID and terminate. All basic tests were conducted successfully in a virtual machine environment.
