Infection Monkey 1.7.0

This is a BIG, exciting release, with a ton of new features and improvements. To start downloading it while you read the release notes, go to the Infection Monkey website..

New Features 🆕

Zero Trust (#400)

The Monkey now tests your network against the Forrester Zero Trust eXtended framework and provides a report with actionable data and recommendations.

Read more about it in the Infection Monkey for Zero Trust product page or watch a demo video.


Adds the ability to configure monkey using the MITRE ATT&CK matrix and allows to view which ATT&CK techniques were used and how in the report.

Improvements ⤴

Scanning Performance boost (#436)

The monkey now scans its target subnets in parallel, which improves runtime by 4.

Island performance boosts (#441 + #358)

The island now generates reports faster for larger amounts of network nodes by 2 orders of magnitude, which helps when dealing with larger-scale networks. Also, the report is cached if no Monkey has communicated since the last report has been generated.

Hashing all sensitive data in all logs (#438 + #444)

All potentially sensitive data is now logged hashed so no sensitive data is plain-text.

Notification when infection is done (#326)

The Island website will now send you a notification when the infection is done, so you don't need to busy wait on it.

Bug fixes 🐛

Various other bug fixes, such as:

  • Vulnerability stability and success rate improvements.
  • Monkey has TTL before it automatically marked as dead so report finishes in case of lost communication after network changes, shutdowns or crashes. (#313)
  • Automatic black-box testing suite. (#420)
  • Monkey will work on Windows machines that aren't installed on C:\. (#349)
  • Not showing Linux machines in PTH credentials map. (#338)
