Techniques and Write-ups

Tools and Exploits

  • Ensemble - A Bug Bounty Platform that allows hunters to issue commands over a geo-distributed cluster. Gives some botnet like feels 🤔.
  • ContainYourself - DEF CON 31 Tool. Abuses the Windows containers framework to bypass EDRs.
  • NoFilter - DEF CON 31 Tool. Abuses the Windows Filtering Platform for privilege escalation.
  • DllNotificationInjection - DEF CON 31 Tool. POC of a new “threadless” process injection technique.
  • CloudRecon - DEF CON 31 Tool. Suite of tools for red teamers and bug hunters to find ephemeral and development assets in their campaigns and hunts.
  • EasyEASM DEF CON 31 Tool. Zero-dollar attack surface management tool. "The industry is dominated by $30k vendors selling "Attack Surface Management," but OG bug bounty hunters and red teamers know the truth" 👀
  • gssapi-abuse - DEF CON 31 Tool. Impersonating AD users on *nix based hosts? Noice. Looks like rubeus was updated as well.
  • DoubleDrive - BH23 Tool. A fully-undetectable ransomware that utilizes OneDrive to encrypt target files.
  • apppoolcreddecrypt - A POC to show how IIS App Pool credentials are decrypted without appcmd.exe.
  • NtRemoteLoad - Remote Shellcode injector using indirect native syscalls to inject shellcode into another process (based on HWSyscalls by ShorSec)
  • konstellation - Konstellation is a configuration-driven CLI tool to enumerate cloud resources and store the data into Neo4j. Think Bloodhound for k8s.
  • mellon - Open Supervised Device Protocol attack tool (and the Elvish word for friend).
  • CVE-2023-36874_BOF - Weaponized CobaltStrike BOF for CVE-2023-36874 Windows Error Reporting LPE.
  • SharpShellPipe - This lightweight C# demo application showcases interactive remote shell access via named pipes and the SMB protocol.
