Abstract: Persistent malware implants have recently been found being widely distributed via normal supply channels, including in Android phones, Juniper routers, and other embedded devices. We propose to leverage FRAK, our existing automated embedded device firmware unpacking and analysis framework to search a variety of embedded device firmware for backdoors and malware implanted along the supply chain. Creating new firmware unpackers and malware hunting analysis modules for FRAK will allow us to automate much of a previously time intensive manual process. Any malware discoveries in widely used devices will increase the security of organizations and users everywhere.
