Executive Summary

  • According to a tweet from 3xp0rt, Ali Kushji was able to infiltrate LockBit’s server and acquire the builder for the ransomware
  • According to vx-underground, Proton, one of the programmers for the LockBit ransomware group, mentioned that the builder was leaked, but the tweet has now been deleted.
  • The ransomware group indirectly admitted that the allegations above are true, saying that nothing has been hacked and that they have fired the coder.
  • LockBit 3.0 Builder leaked by Ali Kushii and Proton are both shared on 3xp0rt’s Github.

Detailed Analysis

LockBit builder flowchart

1. Build.bat

Build.bat creates an RSA public/private key pair by executing Keygen.exe, and Builder.exe that generates a LockBit 3.0 ransomware using the generated key pair.

ERASE /F /Q %cd%\Build\*.* 
keygen -path %cd%\Build -pubkey pub.key -privkey priv.key
builder -type dec -privkey %cd%\Build\priv.key -config config.json -ofile %cd%\Build\LB3Decryptor.exe
builder -type enc -exe -pubkey %cd%\Build\pub.key -config config.json -ofile %cd%\Build\LB3.exe
builder -type enc -exe -pass -pubkey %cd%\Build\pub.key -config config.json -ofile %cd%\Build\LB3_pass.exe
builder -type enc -dll -pubkey %cd%\Build\pub.key -config config.json -ofile %cd%\Build\LB3_Rundll32.dll
builder -type enc -dll -pass -pubkey %cd%\Build\pub.key -config config.json -ofile %cd%\Build\LB3_Rundll32_pass.dll
builder -type enc -ref -pubkey %cd%\Build\pub.key -config config.json -ofile %cd%\Build\LB3_ReflectiveDll_DllMain.dll
exit
Command line description

The list of files created after execution is as follows.

3. Builder.exe

Builder.exe is a tool to generate LockBit 3.0 Encryptor and Decryptor. Encryptor and Decryptor are embedded in the resource section.

  • 100: LockBit 3.0 Decryptor (EXE)
  • 101: LockBit 3.0 Encryptor (EXE)
  • 103: LockBit 3.0 Encryptor (DLL)
  • 106: LockBit 3.0 Encryptor (Reflective DLL)

The parameters used during execution are as follows.

-type

  • enc: Generate Encryptor
  • dec: Generate Decryptor

-config

  • Configuration file path

-exe, -dll, -ref(reflectiveDLL)

  • File type to be created

-pass

  • When creating an Encryptor, the password required to execute the Encryptor
  • Passwords required to execute Encryptor are stored in Password_exe.txt and Password_dll.txt respectively

-pubkey, -privkey

  • Path of the key file to be used when creating Encryptor and Decryptor

-ofile

  • File path to save

4. Keygen.exe

Keygen.exe is a tool that generates key pairs required for encryption. The parameters used during execution are as follows.

  • -path : Folder path to save generated key pair file
  • -pubkey : File name to use for Encryptor as public key (256 bytes)
  • -privkey : File name to use for Encryptor as private key (256 bytes)

Afterward, a 16-byte Decryption ID is generated to identify the infected PC and stored in the DECRYPTION_ID.txt file.
