Im trying to run some malware samples in my Virtual lab to capture their IOC's. Im doing this for my Masters Thesis but i can not seem to get the malware to run.
I have downloaded samples from hybrid analysis. if i try and run the malware using
run32dll <sample>,#1 i get nothing start.
Im running a petya malware sample downloaded from hybrid-analysis.com
If I look at the sample in PE Explorer i get told it's not a valid exe or DLL.
Anyone have any experience executing malware that can assist a newbie in this?
I'm more of an Infrastructure and OS guy. I would have thought running the would have been easy.
I have attached my lab design on the post. The Host Machine is an Ubuntu box with 32 GB ram and a bunch of processors The Lab is a VirtualBox environment. The Home network is the way to the internet Virtual Lab -> Host System -> Internet Gateway
Any help in the resolution of my problem gratefully received.
