Known gotchas

  • This tool will not work on OSX or Linux machines. It is specifically designed to target windows.
  • There may be issues with icon caching in some situations. If your payload doesn't execute after the first time, try regenerating it.
  • You will need to run a responder or metasploit module server to capture NTLM hashes.
  • To capture environment variables, you'll need to run a webserver like apache, nginx, or even just this
