Scan Port 443
« on: March 23, 2021, 03:19:53 am »
Just a general question. If I want to enumerate the Established IP connections to remote port 443 - can this be accomplished with WB's Winsock Extender or use something else?

Do you mean the connections made from one local computer to any remote computers over the 443 port or are you referring to all the 443 connections from all computers to a single remote computer?

Of course, there is the no-code technique of using the "netstat" command-line tool to get local connections.

netstat -an | find “443”

I suspect that you already know this but you can always use your favored PS. The cmdlet is Get-NetTCPConnection.

Yes, I know and there is a script for that. This would have to be an additional menu option to an existing WB program I compiled in 2016. The PS script goes the extra mile of accessing https://ipinfo.io/[ip address(s) from port 443]/json - to get extended information and I have code for submitting ip addresses to that URL in place.

LLC normally uses the Registries of Intenet Numbers directly (along with blacklist services and malformed request detection) for detecting malicious actors on this board and on other sites. But the site you mentioned is handy because it is one place to look instead of five Registries.

Fine.. and below is PS Script... but the ask was could getting the IP's from 443 be accomplished in WB. The rest is already covered.
Code: [Select]

$process = @{
  Name = 'ProcessName'
  Expression = { (Get-Process -Id $_.OwningProcess).Name }
}
 
$darkAgent = @{
  Name = 'ExternalIdentity'
  Expression = {
    $ip = $_.RemoteAddress
    (Invoke-RestMethod -Uri "http://ipinfo.io/$ip/json" -UseBasicParsing -ErrorAction Ignore).org
 
  }
}
Get-NetTCPConnection -RemotePort 443 -State Established |
  Select-Object -Property RemoteAddress, OwningProcess, $process, $darkAgent

I would have mentioned a method if I knew a native WinBatch method. Though that was obvious from the response.  To be more acute there is a method that may work but it is a time-consuming task to script using DllCalls and I don't have the time to spend on it at the moment. You might want to check the  FCL for classes likely used by PS.

After thinking about it, it might make sense to add something along these lines to an extender like IPGrabber. Could mock it up in DllCall based script to verify that works. When time permits and if it works will post a script here.

While I could easily incorporate the PS code via the CLR the original exe I compiled was for a user who still has Win7, was worried after getting messages it was no longer supported and I'm not sure if the PS code would even work on his machine. Nothing critical, he will probably upgrade to Win 10.

As it sometimes happens this script provided a convenient integration test for another project currently in the works. It is not production-ready by any stretch because it is lacking error handling, proper documentation, adherence to coding standards, and it could be rewritten to execute much more efficiently.  It also requires Windows Vista or newer and only reports IPV4 TCP connections; not IPV6 or UDP connections. Bugs are included at no extra charge...

We aim to please. I have the .h files for the .dll's you referenced as part of Windows\Kits but can't find the .dlls

The DLLs are all part of the OS.  They are either in "System32", "SysWOW64", or one of the SXS directories. But you don't need to know that.  Since they are system DLLs, they will be located for you by WinBatch.

I searched for Iphlpapi.dll in those folders. Maybe corrupted, destroyed.... if you search it on the web you get a lot of 'fixes' 'downloads' for dll not found. Anyway, ran your script... it does nothing on my laptop... so it's my problem.


[EDIT] ran sfc \scannow which helped.... then noticed  a endifendif in your script code. Adjusted and script ran fine.

[EDIT_2]: ran your script alongside the one I posted that calls PS from CLR.  Your script did not appear to pick up port 443.

The "endifendif" was a bit of sloppiness on my part. I modified the script on my system which works but tried to just alter the posted script instead of reposting it. 

Don't have any explanation for why your HTTPS port connects are missing other than because there aren't any or they are IPV6 (note that is possible to modify the script to collect IPV6 connections).  The HTTPS (443) connects show up on my system and are tied to the correct process. Also remember that connects change frequently on systems.

Out of an abundance of curiosity, I searched for the Iphlpapi.dll on my system found 11 copies in all the places I mentioned and a few more.  Places like restore point storage for updates e.t.c.

FWIW, a simple way to search for system files if you don't trust MSFT's Start menu search functionality is to use the OS's File Explorer search functionality. Open a File Explorer window on the root of the system drive and type the file name with extension into the search box on the right. You would likely need to enable the Show Hidden and System files option. If you are still using dark ages mechanical hard drives, you may need to take a lunch break or something as it could take a while.

To put things in perspective and close this thread:
  • I have had issues with file searches lately. I did use File Explorer after running sfc \scannow and the dlls's eventually showed up.
  • Just re-ran my script then yours and both had port 443 rows.
  • Turns out 443 was a moot point. Re-compiled program for user with the PS/CLR code for 443 and he said it just hung on his machine [very old Win 7]. He then said he really didn't need it but asked out of interest due to some surfing he was doing on conspiracies lately and wondered if he was being 'watched'
  • your Netstat suggestion worked.
