Obfuscated files without PARs

Post by trinitytek »

Is there any work being done to implement de-obfuscation for files without pars? If you are interested in adding this to your app, please contact me, I do this using powershell, it is pretty simple.

Can you post the powershell script, and a link to such a NZB?

I am sure you can find one with obfuscated files, but here is the script:

$FileList = Get-ChildItem -Path X:\Downloads\Folder

foreach ($File in $FileList)
{
$test = C:\WinRAR\rar l $file.FullName
$option = [System.StringSplitOptions]::RemoveEmptyEntries
$newvar = ($test[11].split(' ',$option)).foreach{$_}
$number = $newvar[2].PadLeft(4,'0')
$newname = $file.DirectoryName + '\' + 'recovered.' + 'part' + $number + '.rar'

ren $file.FullName $newname
}

one caveat, run the files through a renamer first or do it via powershell... the files will need an RAR extension for this script to function

There is a way to indeed extract this from the header of the rar-files.
Maybe you have some coding skills and can help us out with this? I have some basic documentation!

Some questions:

- can you put / name the rar files in random order?
- what if there is more than 1 file? The "rar l ..." will list more than 1 file, and will pick ... which name? See example below. Does your script work then (I can only read & understand vaguely the powershell commands)?

Code: Select all

OK, bingo:

Start: fully obfuscated:

Code: Select all

for f in *.rar; do echo "Processing $f file.."; mv $f `uuidgen` ; done

Code: Select all

Rename with correct order number (but random file name):

Done!

To do: checking the file is really a rar file before renaming.

While we could do it, we should do this with the header (like Unrar does). Needs a seperate version for rar3 and rar5.

Re: Obfuscated files without PARs

Post by hypersucker »

Has this been implemented? Currently on the latest beta and I have one where SAB downloads the files just fine, uses the par2 to repair them but then I'm left with the obfuscated filenames. Those are all rars but how do I figure out which one is which in what order? I read over at NZBGet that they implemented something to read the rar file header and rename files according to this but I cant test that in Get since Get refuses to download this nzb (for health reasons) but SAB downloads it just fine.

Re: Obfuscated files without PARs

Post by sander »

SABnzbd has now built-in deobfuscation of obfuscated rar files, and more deobfuscation.

Did you turn on Debofuscate Final Filenames? See http://127.0.0.1:8080/sabnzbd/config/sw ... _filenames

If it doesn't work, share your NZB via pastebin.com, or [email protected]

PS: there is one thing that SAB (nor any other too) cannot do: a whole season, fulle obfuscated, and then determine which file is which ... Impossible ...

[email protected] does not work, I sent it to [email protected] instead. I turned on the above mentioned switch and SAB did rename the obfuscated files now but I think still not properly as far as I can tell. It's a single episode btw.

Re: Obfuscated files without PARs

Thanks for the NZB.
SAB downloaded it, and indeed the result is obfuscated files, which are rar files.
SAB can handle obfuscated rar files. I don't know why SAB didn't do that on these files. First guess: double obfuscated, and SAB only does one run / one layer of deobfuscation.
I'm currently working on another thing for SAB, so no time yet to investigate this.

One question to you: is it just this NZB, or do have more of these problematics posts?
