enter image description hereI'm threat hunting and I'm curious if there should be a shell32.dll in the executable search path in windbg for winword.exe.

  • What / where are you disassembling / data ? The disassembly looks invalid ins outs etc are dos era instructions and wouldnt be valid in a 64 bit user mode app

As i commented the area you are disassembling does not look like a valid code

As to how did it happen you should know better you have provided the address for disassembling 0x7ffc6b54000 and that address is probably located in advapi32.dll's resource section in the virtual address space of the process

  • I just thought that it was something different. I actually don't know anything, I'm new to this. Jun 19 at 16:54
