  • Zero wine is an open  source research project to dynamically analyze the behavior of  malware.  Zero wine runs malware samples using WINE in a virtual sandbox, collecting information about the APIs called by the program.  With this information in hand, analyzing malware’s behavior becomes easy.  Zero wine is distributed as one QEMU virtual machine image with a Debian operating system installed. The image contains software to upload and analyze malware, and to generate reports based on the information gathered.  Running the VM using the supplied startup shell script provides a web based python graphical interface to upload malware to be analyzed.  When a new sample is uploaded, it is copied to a safe environment and executed using a shell script.
