This one kind of slipped by unnoticed over the holidays, but Claudio & company released a new version of the Cuckoo sandbox and it has some some nice new features.  Some of the more significant ones to me are:

  • full memory dumps of the virtual machines
  • added packages for jar, java applet, and zip files
  • support for Windows 7 (yippee!!!)

Add to that lots of other improvements and bug fixes (check them out at the link below) and I can't wait to play with it myself.  This project is turning into a very nice flexible automated malware analysis tool.  If any of our readers have had a chance to try out the new version and want to share their thoughts, please let us know in the comments or via the contact form.  If I get a chance to do some serious playing with it before my next shift, I'll try to write up my experiences.  In the meantime, kudos to Claudio & company, keep up the good work.
