Remnux and Docker

At work, we have this thing on Fridays called power up time.  It is the last 4 hours of the week to work on personal projects, test new ideas to see if they are worth implementing, or self improvement.  Most weeks it is when I get to look at the most tickets doing Tactical level intelligence since the rest of the week is filled with project or priority case work.

Recently while working on tactical level information for SOC tickets, I was able to add in a little fun, and actually power up.  I wanted to do some reverse engineering of the malware associated with the  ticket, to see if there was more IOCs that could be extracted.

Earlier in the day I read an email in the SANS DFIR alumni list, which included someone talking about using Remnux with docker.  So later in the the day working the ticket, and because I didn’t have a Remnux box, I decided to check out the docker containers.  This was also my first time working with docker as well.  Starting at Lenny Zeltzer’s Remnux Docker Site.

I went to my linux vm, a box that gets reset to the fresh installed state via snapshot after each use.  After a sudo apt install docker.io and a sudo docker pull remnux/pescanner I had the container.

I ran it and learned a little bit about docker. I also got an understanding of some of the information that VirusTotal displays under the detail tab.
