Another Go shellcode loader designed to work with Cobalt Strike raw binary payload.

Related tags



Another Go shellcode loader designed to work with Cobalt Strike raw binary payload. I created this project to mainly educate myself learning Go and directly executing shellcode into the target Windows system using various techniques.

Encryption - I implemented a simple payload encryption process (IV --> AES --> XOR --> Base64) that I learned while studying for SLAE32. This is mainly for protecting Cobalt Strike payload when it's moved over to the target host. The final compiled payload will include a decrypt function within.

Templates - Templates are the skeleton scripts to generate a final payload per each technique.


git clone
GO111MODULE=off go build bankai.go

Usage & Example

Generate a Cobalt Strike payload:

./bankai -h                       

     _                 _         _ 
    | |               | |       (_)
    | |__   __ _ _ __ | | ____ _ _ 
    | '_ \ / _' | '_ \| |/ / _' | |
    | |_) | (_| | | | |   < (_| | |
    |_.__/ \__,_|_| |_|_|\_\__,_|_|
