Kautilya 0.4.4 - dump lsa secrets, introduce vulns, improved backdoors and more

Here comes  Kautilya 0.4.4. This version adds three new payloads and improves couple of others.

Download and Execute Powerhell Script - As the name suggests this script downloads a powershell script and executes it on the target.

Remove Update - Remove all or security or a specific hotfix from the target. Great way to introduce vulnerability on a target.

LSA Secrets - Dump LSA Secrets from a victim. The payload detects 32-bit or 64-bit machine and calls the proper version of powershell accordingly.

I am always looking for contributors, if you want to contribute to Kautilya (or Nishang) do not hesitate to contact me.

Please refer to the CHANGELOG below for details.

- Added "Download and Execute Powershell Script" windows payload.
- Added "Remove Update" windows payload.
- Added "LSA Secrets" windows payload.
- Updated "DNS TXT Backdoor". It is much more easy to use now.
- Renamed Wait for Command to HTTP Backdoor
- HTTP Backdoor now keeps running till the stopstring is matched.
- An option has been added for no exfiltration of data. Choose 0 when Kautilya asks for exfil option.

On a related note, Paul - the maker of Teensy pushed some updates for non-English keyboards. See the thread here (Thanks to Lorenz for reporting this): Please let me know if it helps with the problems for non-English keyboard users.

 Please feel free to report bugs and feedback.

  5. We expect that the new LG V30 will be a super success when it launches at the upcoming global event. With the other Smartphone manufacturers going all in to find the proverbial Pandora’s Box when it comes to customer satisfaction, we have developed a wishlist of the features which the LG will supposedly carry. We can also predict that the MWC 2017 will not be the LG V30 showcase after all, as mentioned here.
