Cybercrime attack tools (i.e. Exploit Kits) are reportedly responsible for the majority of attacks affecting home users. Exploit kits are traded in the black markets at different prices and advertising different capabilities and functionalities. In this paper we present our experimental approach in testing 10 exploit kits leaked from the markets that we deployed in an isolated environment, our \emph{MalwareLab}. The purpose of this experiment is to test these tools in terms of resiliency against changing software configurations in time. We present our experiment design and implementation, discuss challenges, lesson learned and open problems, and present a preliminary analysis of the results.

Abstract

Cybercrime attack tools (i.e. Exploit Kits) are reportedly responsible for the majority of attacks affecting home users. Exploit kits are traded in the black markets at different prices and advertising different capabilities and functionalities. In this paper we present our experimental approach in testing 10 exploit kits leaked from the markets that we deployed in an isolated environment, our \emph{MalwareLab}. The purpose of this experiment is to test these tools in terms of resiliency against changing software configurations in time. We present our experiment design and implementation, discuss challenges, lesson learned and open problems, and present a preliminary analysis of the results.
