PowerAssembly 22 Oct 2021


Map in current PowerShell Instance Memory .NET Assemblies from remote web server.

When Assembly is mapped, you can invoke it's main with a command line argument.

The advantage of this technique is to avoid having assemblies written on disk. Everything happens in memory.

I'm using this script during my penetration tests / labs right after getting an initial shell on Windows to load other .NET Tools (Ex: ShapHound, ShapUp etc..)

Inno Shellcode Example 21 Jul 2021

InnoSetup Execute Shellcode PoC

This proof of concept demonstrate how to take advantage of InnoSetup Scripting Engine to host local/remote process shellcode payload then execute.

The idea behind this concept is to demonstrate the dangerosity of (self) installers. Not only they can contain malicious programsn, they can also run native code through their scripting engines and evade AV detections because of their natural aspect.

The most difficult part was to understand how to use pointers/refs. Basically from this example, it is possible to create any kind of Malware from scratch (even more complex ones). Feel free to try, if you have any technical questions, feel free to ask for some help.

Detecting Active Services 22 Feb 2021

This code snippet demonstrate how Malware authors take advantage of certain Windows API's to detect the presence of Windows Services that might indicate the presence of Virtualization Technologies and/or Sandbox in order to adapt their behavior and escape detection.

File Melt 22 Feb 2021

This technique is often used by Malware to hide their presence on system after execution. The application self-delete after the end of its execution. The best method to archive a such goal is through process injection.

NTFS Files Attributes 07 Dec 2020

ADS (Alternate Data Stream) is a channel often abused by Malware authors to hide files by abusing the property of NTFS File Systems.

It is mainly used to store: additional payloads, collected data or settings.

An ADS file is completely hidden from explorer. In modern version of Windows, you can display ADS files using the command dir /r or through using third part tools.

NASM Shell++ 27 Nov 2020

NASM Shell++ is an enhanced version of the Metasploit Framework NASM Shell.

You can edit instructions, specify bad characters and finally export your final payload in Python, C or CPP

Code Cave Helper 27 Nov 2020

This tool will help you to find code caves in target x86-32 bit Microsoft Windows PE files.

This tool automatically patch application entry point to redirect code execution to chosen code cave, where your payload is stored. When payload execution is over, code execution is redirected back to original program entry point.

Code Cave Helper supports main section encryption.

This tool is considered as a PoC, it was created during my preparation for OSCE Certification in order to master the art of Backdooring PE Files.

A good improvement would be to support x86-64 bit files and offer an option to create a new section instead of searching for natural code caves.

YASE Encoder 27 Nov 2020

YASE (Yet Another Sub Encoder) is a tiny but efficient Sub Encoder to quickly encode your shellcode payloads and thus bypass some common restricted character while exploiting buffer overflows.

This tool will brute force any possible combination to achieve expected result. The advantage of a such approach is to have an output result that always look different.

Postgresql Extension Shellcode Execution 27 Nov 2020

Postgresql offer to developer the possibility to create their own plugins, often called UDF (User Defined Function).

In this paper we will demonstrate how we could take advantage of Postgresql UDF to run malicious code (in this example, shellcode) in a compromised database (Ex: through SQLi).

Notice, we must have sufficient privilege to register a new UDF. This is not always the case.

Bruteforce Windows Logon (PoC) 23 Nov 2020

Weakness Description

Microsoft Windows suffer from a serious lack of protection in their authentication mechanism which could led in privilege escalation.

Indeed, in default installation of Windows (all version), the account lockdown policy is disabled plus authentication API's doesn't limit number of attempts per seconds which could led to a medium to fast brute-force attacks.

Using our PoC and depending of the number of cores available in the target system you could test from few thousands to dozen of thousands of password per second.

Considering that those kind of authentication API's could be used by any Windows account, even a Guest user could use the PoC to recover / crack the password of any local user and escalate his privilege.
