Payload missed

L2 Linker

Ladies & Gents, 


I created a x64 payload.exe (internal testing) this payload creates a reverse_tcp on port 4444. So I uploaded my 'payload.exe' to my test machine with Traps 4.1.3 (39-2454 Content). 


Thinking, Traps will shut this down, to my horror it just let it run, in fact Windows Smart Filter triggered at first and let me click on proceed. Which I did and in a few seconds I had a meterpreter session running on my Kali box. 


So my concern is why didn't Traps pick up on this? I also uploaded to WF which said it was a benign file, how can a file that opens up a reserve shell be cosnidered benign? 


I am not no coder just used the standard tools in Kali, which means if I can anyone can. 


Really worrying that Traps let this through 😞

I too have had concerns around similar items, as in "wtf, seriously" moments. I know that doesn't help you but just sayin' I share your concern.

Yep I'm with you. 


Biggest concern I have flagged this in WF as the wrong result, and left a message. It would be nice if someone from PA came back and said, yep we have this info and we are working on this or 'OMG you are right, nice spot' 


I'm starting to think my over confidence in Traps was misplaced.



What was the hash on the file?
