InjectProc

Process injection is a very popular method to hide malicious behavior of code and are heavily used by malware authors.

There are several techniques, which are commonly used: DLL injection, process replacement (a.k.a process hollowing), hook injection and APC injection.

Most of them use same Windows API functions: OpenProcess, VirtualAllocEx, WriteProcessMemory, for detailed information about those functions, use MSDN.

DLL injection:

  • Open target process.
  • Allocate space.
  • Write code into the remote process.
  • Execute the remote code.

Process replacement:

  • Create target process and suspend it.
  • Unmap from memory.
  • Allocate space.
  • Write headers and sections into the remote process.
  • Resume remote thread.

Hook injection:

  • Find/Create process.
  • Set hook

Note:

InjectProc uses SetWindowsHookEx function, you can try different ways to installing hooks, for example, EasyHook

APC injection:

  • Open process.
  • Allocate space.
  • Write code into remote threads.
  • "Execute" threads using QueueUserAPC.

Warning

Works on Windows 10 build 1703, 64bit.

I've not enough time to test other systems and make it portable if you have enough time please contribute.

I create this project for me to better understand how process injection works and I think it will be helpful for many beginner malware analysts too.
