Extracting the payload from a CVE-2014-1761 RTF document


In March Microsoft published security advisory 2953095, detailing a remote code execution vulnerability in multiple versions of Microsoft Office (CVE-2014-1761). A Technet blog was released at the same time which contained excellent information on how a typical malicious document would be constructed. NCC Group’s Cyber Defence Operations team used the information in the Technet blog to identify a malicious document within our malware zoo that exploited this vulnerability which appears to have been used in a targeted attack. In this blog we show one method of analysing the shellcode manually to extract the payload.
