I just watched a video presentation from September’s OWASP conference. The presenter, Tyler Hudak, talked about the Truman-based hybrid sandnet he created to automate the analysis of web-based malware. He references Google’s The Ghost in the Browser paper, as well as the Honeynet Project. One tool he used to help automate things in Windows is AutoIt, something I had not heard of before, but it sounds handy. The demo also shows a tool called InCtrl5, a utility for Windows that monitors changes to your system, primarily for use when installing some new program. I guess it’s used to compliment the usual Sysinternals tools, so maybe it has some extra features that Tyler finds useful.
