Sandbox evasion
Hi Kowsik,

Thanks for the read. Sandbox evasion is what we live and breathe. We've published our own work on that, and have dealt with the use cases you describe. Of course, some of it is dependant on the customer ensuring their analysis environment matches their own target environment. Hence we support gold images as analysis targets for ex. And tailoring of the localisation settings and VPN settings for outbound communication: https://www.vmray.com/cyber-security-blog/sandbox-evasion-techniques-part-1/

On Time
State sponsored actors and hackers have one huge advantage - time.  And the ability to think.  All they do is think about ways to hack and break into systems being as innovative as this article indicates.  New will always happen and they time on their hands to do more wrong, hence their attacks increase in sophistication.  We shall always be 5 minutes behind them at the least.  WE have daily chores, work and fighting infections among them while hunting down particulars of the infection real fast .... and they just have to think it up and release it.  No need to fight it for them.  They have the advantage, always have and always will. 

And again email delivery to user.  If you don't need it, don't read it, delete it.
