HellgateLoader_CSharp

Blog link: working on it

  • Rewrite hellgate with .net framework for learning purpose

  • Base on the original Hellgate project down below:

    1. https://github.com/am0nsec/SharpHellsGate
    2. https://github.com/am0nsec/HellsGate
  • And my other project down below:

    1. SysCall_ShellcodeLoader
    2. HookDetection
    3. DInvoke_ShellcodeLoader
    4. NewNtdllBypassInlineHook
  • I make this project for learning purpose, use it at you own risk.

  • Only tested it on Win10/x64 works fine.

  • For better understanding, you really need to read the PDF(https://vxug.fakedoma.in/papers/VXUG/Exclusive/HellsGate.pdf) from the original author.

  • Thanks to them I do learn a lot, during coding this project.

  • Also, there is a little different here, Instead of read the syscall id from the memory, I read 24 bytes as the syscall, so you don‘t need to concat them again. I think that would be more convenient for me.

  • (From the PDF)This general usage code base self-resolves syscalls without the need for static elements. Additionally, this general usage code base makes zero function invocations to aggregate the syscalls themselves.

  • About how it works:

    1. Read the ntdll.dll via IO.stream from disk as MemoryStream.
    2. Find the RVA of function address.
    3. Convert the rva to file offset(RVA - IMAGE_SECTION_HEADER_instance.VirtualAddress + IMAGE_SECTION_HEADER_instance.PointerToRawData;).
    4. Use the offset to find to function offset in MemoryStream.
    5. Read 24 bytes as syscall from MemoryStream with the right offset.
    6. Execute the syscall via delegate.
  • The picture down below helps you to understand file offset. avatar

  • The code from the original project is elegant as hell, guess that is why is called HELLGATE :) :) ~

  • You could even modify the code to like injection or something else.

Usage

  1. Set the APIs name that you need in "SyscallTable.cs" ,In this case is:
  • v1.Name = "NtAllocateVirtualMemory";
  • v2.Name = "NtCreateThreadEx";
  • v3.Name = "NtWaitForSingleObject"; avatar
  1. Set the shellcode in Program.cs, the default shellcode is a Calc. avatar

TO-DO list

  • Works on both x64/x86
  • Restructure the code

Update history

  • Fix bugs: cannot run normally after compile as release - 20211204
  • Fix bugs: pMethod's address print with wrong format - 20220121
