BackdoorFactory - Patch PE (x86/x64) and ELF (x86/x64 and ARM LE x32) binaries with shellcode

Patch win86/64 PE and linux86/64 binaries with shellcode. The goal of The Backdoor Factory is to patch executable binaries with user desired shellcode and continue normal execution of the binary prepatched state. Under a BSD 3 Clause License.

This is done by either appending a code cave or using existing code caves of the executable. This project includes several customized metasploit shellcodes. Plus a new shellcode loadliba_reverse_tcp: designed to bypass all the protections of EMET 4.1. Also, the user can provide their own shellcode for use.

This update provides the loadliba_reverse_tcp shellcode, stability fixes, and speed improvements.

Usage: backdoor.py [options]

-h, --help show this help message and exit
-f FILE, --file=FILE File to backdoor
-s SHELL, --shell=SHELL
Payloads that are available for use.
-H HOST, --hostip=HOST
IP of the C2 for reverse connections
-P PORT, --port=PORT The port to either connect back to for reverse shells
or to listen on for bind shells
-J, --cave_jumping Select this options if you want to use code cave
jumping to further hide your shellcode in the binary.
-a, --add_new_section
Mandating that a new section be added to the exe
(better success) but less av avoidance
User supplied shellcode, make sure that it matches the
architecture that you are targeting.
-c, --cave The cave flag will find code caves that can be used
for stashing shellcode. This will print to all the
code caves of a specific size.The -l flag can be use
with this setting.
-l SHELL_LEN, --shell_length=SHELL_LEN
For use with -c to help find code caves of different
-o OUTPUT, --output-file=OUTPUT
The backdoor output file
New section name must be less than seven characters
-d DIR, --directory=DIR
This is the location of the files that you want to
backdoor. You can make a directory of file backdooring
faster by forcing the attaching of a codecave to the
exe by using the -a setting.
-w, --change_access This flag changes the section that houses the codecave
to RWE. Sometimes this is necessary. Enabled by
default. If disabled, the backdoor may fail.
-i, --injector This command turns the backdoor factory in a hunt and
shellcode inject type of mechinism. Edit the target
settings in the injector module.
-u SUFFIX, --suffix=SUFFIX
For use with injector, places a suffix on the original
file for easy recovery
-D, --delete_original
For use with injector module. This command deletes
the original file. Not for use in production systems.
*Author not responsible for stupid uses.*
Starting point on disk offset, in bytes. Some authors
want to obfuscate their on disk offset to avoid
reverse engineering, if you find one of those files
use this flag, after you find the offset.
-S, --support_check To determine if the file is supported by BDF prior to
backdooring the file. For use by itself or with
verbose. This check happens automatically if the
backdooring is attempted.
-M, --cave-miner Future use, to help determine smallest shellcode
possible in a PE file
-q, --no_banner Kills the banner.
-v, --verbose For debug information output.
-T IMAGE_TYPE, --image-type=IMAGE_TYPE
ALL, x32, or x64 type binaries only. Default=ALL
-Z, --zero_cert Allows for the overwriting of the pointer to the PE
certificate table effectively removing the certificate
from the binary for all intents and purposes.
-R, --runas_admin Checks the PE binaries for 'requestedExecutionLevel
level="highestAvailable"'. If this string is included
in the binary, it must run as system/admin. Doing this
slows patching speed significantly.
-L, --patch_dll Use this setting if you DON'T want to patch DLLs.
Patches by default.


PE Files

Can find all codecaves in an EXE/DLL.
By default, clears the pointer to the PE certificate table, thereby unsigning a binary.
Can inject shellcode into code caves or into a new section.
Can find if a PE binary needs to run with elevated privileges.
When selecting code caves, you can use the following commands:
-Jump (j), for code cave jumping
-Single (s), for patching all your shellcode into one cave
-Append (a), for creating a code cave
-Ignore (i), nevermind, ignore this binary
Can ignore DLLs.

ELF Files

Extends 1000 bytes (in bytes) to the TEXT SEGMENT and injects shellcode into that section of code.


The user can :
-Provide custom shellcode.
-Patch a directory of executables/dlls.
-Select x32 or x64 binaries to patch only.
-Include BDF is other python projects see pebin.py and elfbin.py
