GoGoGadget provides a set of tools useful for cyber security testing packaged in a statically compiled binary. Have you ever been on an engagement and compromised a system only to find the system provides none of the tools you need? Even worse the system is running on ARM or PPC and you have no time to set up a cross-compiler to get something working... GoGoGadget is here to solve all your problems. Want to move files off the machine?

GoGoGadget uses the standard Go toolchain to target a bunch of different architectures and processor types. To see a full list of available operating systems and processor architectures type
go tool dist list. Provide the operating system and processor architecture on the command line by typing
GOOS=<operating system> GOARCH=<architecture> go build.
Once you have GoGoGadget on a target machine you can use any of the gadgets by typing
gogogadget <gadget>. For specific usage information you can read help for each gadget using

Reduced Size Binary
To reduce the size of the GoGoGadget binary we can strip the debugging symbols from the binary by appending the following build flag:
-s - Omit the symbol table and debug information
-w - Omit the DWARF symbol table
Additionally the binary can be compressed using the Ultimate Packer for Executables which compresses the binary into a self-decompressing binary.
upx -9 gogogadget
-9 - Maximum compression
To ensure that upx supports the architecture that you're targeting type
upx -h to see all supported architectures.
