Magic Folder Hide

This is a application which I coded in last year but I have forgotten to make a blog post. Using this tool you can create a ‘..’ folder in Windows and store your data inside it. No one can access your files using the explorer since the path is not valid, they can only see the name 🙂

This trick can be used in pentesting and is widely used by malware for hiding other malicious files. I coded this tool just for fun 😀

LFi Freak – An Automated File Inclusion Exploiter

I am sure you know about exploiting file inclusion vulnerabilities. In file inclusion situations in common we can read files arbitrarily in the system or remotely depending on the permissions. In PHP environments commonly we poison the log files or inject malicious PHP into the user agent header and load the “/proc/self/environ” file. However when we encounter file inclusion situations in PHP environments we can use the in-built PHP wrappers to make our exploitations much easier or perhaps bypass existing filters.

There are lot of LFI exploitation tools available but I’ve written this tool mainly focusing on the usage of “php://input”, “php://filter” and “data://” methods.  Even though the title explicitly conveys “LFI Freak” this can be used for RFI vulnerabilities as well. This tool is written in Python 2.7 and I have included binaries for both Windows and Linux systems. If you are running from the source or want to modify this, you need the BeautifulSoup library.

Here is a small walkthrough of the features of the tool.

To test for local or remote file inclusions you can use the option one “Automated testing”. I am using DVWA in here. To test this tool create a small vulnerable file.

<?php
	echo "File included: ".$_REQUEST["page"]."<br>";
	$file =  $_REQUEST["page"];
	include $file;
?>

Accessing the Windows API Directly

If you are into pentesting I am sure you might have heard about the IRB shell in the Metasploit framework. This will be a small post about accessing Windows API using Railgun. Using Railgun we can access different functions in DLLs during runtime in memory. We could also write our own DLLs and call them directly using Railgun. This technique is used in the Meterpreter scripts and post exploitation modules to access the API to perform automated tasks.
For demonstration I will be using a Windows 7 machine as the target and Kali as the attacker machine.
After owning the box in the meterpreter session type “irb” and from there we can start the interactive ruby shell. The “client” will be our meterpreter client. We can access common API calls like this. Suppose I want to get the system information.

client.sys.config.sysinfo

Get the user ID

client.sys.config.getuid
