Pentestly

Pentestly is a combination of expanding Python tools for use in penetration tests. The goal is to utilize a familiar user interface while making contributions to the framework easy with the power of Python.

Current features

  • Import NMAP XML
  • Test SMB authentication using:
    • individual credentials
    • file containing credentials
    • null credentials
    • NTLM hash
  • Test local administrator privileges for successful SMB authentication
  • Identify readable SMB shares for valid credentials
  • Store Domain/Enterprise Admin account names
  • Determine location of running Domain Admin processes
  • Determine systems of logged in Domain Admins
  • Execute Powershell commands in memory and exfil results
  • Execute Mimikatz to gather plaintext password from memory (Invoke-Mimikatz.ps1)
  • Receive a command shell (Powercat)
  • Receive a meterpreter session (Invoke-Shellcode.ps1)

Shoulders of Giants

Pentestly stands on the shoulders of giants. Below are the current tools utilized in Pentestly:

  • recon-ng – Backend database for recon-ng is beautifully made and leveraged in Pentestly for data manipulation
  • wmiexec.py – Allows us to execute Powershell commands quickly and easily via WMI
  • smbmap.py – Useful utility for enumerating SMB shares
  • Invoke-Mimikatz.ps1 – Implementation of Mimikatz in Powershell
  • powercat.ps1 – Netcat-esque functionality in Powershell
  • Invoke-Shellcode.ps1 – Deploy Meterpreter in Powershell
  • CrackMapExec – Source of inspiration for the simple Mimikatz server in Pentestly

Install

git clone https://github.com/praetorian-inc/pentestly.git
./install.sh
./pentestly

Usage

Let’s walk through several functions currently implemented.

Change workspace

[pentestly][default] > workspaces list

  +------------+
  | Workspaces |
  +------------+
  | default    |
  +------------+

[pentestly][default] > workspaces add project
[pentestly][project] > workspaces select project

Load from nmap

[pentestly][project][nmap_xml] > load nmap
[pentestly][project][nmap_xml] > set filename /root/PROJECT/full-all-alive.xml
FILENAME => /root/PROJECT/full-all-alive.xml
[pentestly][project][nmap_xml] > show options

  Name      Current Value                      Required  Description
  --------  -------------                      --------  -----------
  FILENAME  /root/PROJECT/full-all-alive.xml  yes       Path and filename for nmap XML input

[pentestly][project][nmap_xml] > run

Test logins

Use file with creds to test login

[pentestly][project][login] > cat /tmp/creds
[*] Command: cat /tmp/creds
user1 pass1
user2 pass2
[pentestly][project][login] > load login
[pentestly][project][login] > set userpass_file /tmp/creds
USERPASS_FILE => /tmp/creds
[pentestly][project][login] > set username ''
USERNAME => ''
[pentestly][project][login] > set password ''
PASSWORD => ''
[pentestly][project][login] > run

Use single username password

[pentestly][project][login] > load login
[pentestly][project][login] > set username admin
USERNAME => admin
[pentestly][project][login] > set password password
PASSWORD => password
[pentestly][project][login] > set userpass_file ''
USERPASS_FILE => ''
[pentestly][project][login] > run

Use credentials over a small subset of IPs i.e. over the 192.168.8.0/24 found in the table

[pentestly][project][login] > load login
[pentestly][project][login] > set username admin
USERNAME => admin
[pentestly][project][login] > set password password
PASSWORD => password
[pentestly][project][login] > set userpass_file ''
USERPASS_FILE => ''
[pentestly][project][login] > run
[pentestly][project][login] > set source query select * from pentestly_creds where host like '192.168.8.%'

Gather Domain and Enterprise admins

[pentestly][project][login] > load get_domain # Notice fuzzy searching - get_domain finds get_domain_admin_names
[pentestly][project][get_domain_admin_names] > show options

  Name    Current Value  Required  Description
  ------  -------------  --------  -----------
  SOURCE  default        yes       source of input (see 'show info' for details)

[pentestly][project][get_domain_admin_names] > run
[*] Found Domain Admin: domain\admin1
[*] Found Domain Admin: domain\admin2

[pentestly][default][interesting_files] > set pattern important.txt|super_secret
PATTERN => important.txt|super_secret
[pentestly][default][interesting_files] > show options

    Name     Current Value               Required  Description

    SOURCE   default                     yes       source of input (see 'show info' for details)

Execute and download found files

[pentestly][default][interesting_files] > run
[*] Administrator
[*] Execution creds: workgroup\Administrator:BadAdminPassword@192.168.224.252
[+] Match found! Downloading: Users\Administrator\Desktop\important.txt.txt

Contributing

Creating new modules is easy in Pentestly. Begin with the code provided in skeleton.py:

from libs.pentestlymodule import PentestlyModule

class Module(PentestlyModule):

    meta = {
        'name': 'Your module name goes here',
        'author': 'Developer name goes here',
        'description': 'Description of the module goes here',
        'query': 'SQL QUERY whose result is passed to your module',
        'options': (
            ('Option1', 'Default Value', Required-True/False, 'Description of option'),
        ),
    }

    def module_pre(self):
        # Optional
        # Happens before your module

    def module_run(self, data):
        # Required
        # data is the result from the SQL query set in the options
        
        ### Few magic functions
        # self.query - Perform an SQL query on the internal database
        results = self.query("select * from pentestly_creds")
        
        # self.output - print default information to the user
        self.output("Performed an SQL query")
        self.output(results)

        # self.alert - print successful message to the user
        self.success("Yay! We performed successful work")

    def module_post(self):
        # Optional
        # Happens after your module

The key points here are to fill the meta dict with the corresponding information as well as the module_run function for module functionality.

This script is then placed in the modules/ folder or in your personal ~/.pentestly/modules folder for portability.

Stay tuned for a detailed example script explanation in the coming weeks.

TODO

  • Implement secretsdump.py module
  • Add utility functions for database queries similar to credsservices
  • Rework draw_table function to have fixed width columns
  • Import credentials from Gladius
  • Implement GPP password search and decrypt module
  • Look into utilizing Invoke-Shellcode
