Description

A JavaScript and VBScript shellcode launcher. This will spawn a 32 bit version of the binary specified and inject shellcode into it.

DotNetToJScript can be found here: https://github.com/tyranid/DotNetToJScript

Usage:

  • Choose a binary you want to inject into, default "rundll32.exe", you can use notepad.exe, calc.exe for example...

  • Generate a 32 bit raw shellcode in whatever framework you want. Tested: Cobalt Strike, Metasploit Framework

  • Run: cat payload.bin | base64 -w 0

  • For JavaScript: Copy the base64 encoded payload into the code variable below

    var code = "<base64 encoded 32 bit raw shellcode>";

  • For VBScript: Copy the base64 encoded payload into the code variable below

    Dim code: code = "<base64 encoded 32 bit raw shellcode>"

  • Then run:

wscript.exe CACTUSTORCH.js or wscript.exe CACTUSTORCH.vbs via command line on the target, or double click on the files within Explorer.

  • For VBA: Copy the base64 encoded payload into a file such as code.txt

  • Run python splitvba.py code.txt output.txt

  • Copy output.txt under the following bit so it looks like:

    code = ""
    code = code & "<base64 code in 100 byte chunk"
    code = code & "<base64 code in 100 byte chunk"
    
  • Copy and paste the whole payload into Word Macro

  • Save Word Doc and send off or run it.

CobaltStrike

  • Load CACTUSTORCH.cna
  • Go to Attack -> Host CACTUSTORCH Payload
  • Fill in fields
  • File hosted and ready to go!
