Congrats to Nick Tyrer for the first community contibuted evasion module to land in master. Nick's evasion/windows/applocker_evasion_install_util module leverages the trusted InstallUtil.exe binary to execute user supplied code and evade application whitelisting.

New modules (4)

Enhancements and features

  • Enhanced Web Delivery by bcoles. The multi/script/web_delivery module has been expanded to support pubprn for Windows delivery & directly support Linux as a target platform.
  • Hostname Keyed XOR by O . S . O. Linux payloads can now be XOR encoded based on target hostname, resulting in payload abort when executed on an unintended system.
  • Improved msfvenom hex encoding by wvu. Payload encoding by msfvenom output allows character literals interleaved with escaped hex when using --bad-chars and --encrypt-key options.
