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 😞 






Hello Sir,  I have watched many of your vids on youtube greatwork by the way. 


Yes, I raised it with our support partner who have passed this onto PA. Interestingly I have tried this payload on on an PC running Sophos InterceptX and this also misses the payload. 


I have given the details of my findings to our support to pass onto PA. 


Thank you for reaching out to me, I want to get PA on this but its always difficult in being heard. Let me kow if you need more info. 



Just an update:


PA have reported that the file is self encyprted which is making it hard for WF to detect, PA are looking into soltuons on WF. 


However, Traps the jury is still out, its going very slowly. I will report back once PA have something. But I can create many new payloads and Traps still ignores them...albeit the outgoing network traffic would be shutdown subject to your configs on your PA, but it is still passing Traps 😞
