Tunneling & Pivoting Quick Guide

This post will cover some useful tools and commands for tunneling and pivoting in relation to pentesting. Targeted to be a non-exhaustive cheat sheet.

There are plenty of tools and unique scenarios involved in tunneling and post-exploitation, so be sure to checkout our ranges to build your knowledge and hands-on experience. Range access is low-cost and includes multiple targets and networks already configured to be exploited - Request Access to get started!

rConfig 3.9.6 - Magic Hash Auth Bypass to RCE

This post will cover two vulnerabilities in rConfig 3.9.6 when chained together could potentially lead to unauthenticated code execution. The first vulnerability involves type juggling using magic hashes to bypass authentication, and the second involves command injection via its cron job functionality.

rConfig is an opensource web-based network configuration management utility, with a free and paid version. These vulnerabilities cover the free version which at the time of writing hasn’t been update for more than 1 year.

Living off the land

This post will run through a scenario showcasing multiple methods of living off the land with built-in Windows assemblies. This scenario takes place on TheSprawl, one of our more advanced pentesting ranges. The lab scenario simply functions to emulate exfil and lateral movement utilizing built-in Windows tools.

At the end we’ll briefly run through some artifacts and logs. Keep in mind these methods may not be very practical in accomplishing our lab scenario goals. If you would like to test your own techniques or build up your offensive cyber skills be sure to checkout the rest of our pentesting ranges.

Getting Started

Starting off we have shell on a domain joined box as a domain user with local admin privs (2EZ). Enumerating the box to see where we should go next can be done using all the basics like net, ipconfig, netstat, etc..but what if we could automate all this?

Windows Persistence via Port Monitors

This post will cover some quick research done by poking around the Windows persistence technique of Port Monitors aka Mitre technique T1547.010. This method can also be used to escalate privileges from Administrator(in most cases) to SYSTEM.

Port Monitors have been documented in the past but I wanted to dive a little deeper and post couple extra trinkets.

What’s a Port Monitor?

The context of a Port Monitor (in this post) is related to the Windows Print Spooler Service or spoolsv.exe. When adding a printer port monitor a user (or attacker😈) has the ability to add an arbitrary dll that acts as the “monitor”.

There are basically two ways to add a port monitor aka your evil dll: via Registry for persistence or via a custom Windows app (AddMonitor function) for immediate dll execution.

A nice bonus is your dll will be executed as NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM since this is what the parent spoolsv.exe is run as. The catch is you need local admin privs or at least the ability to write to the registry.

First, onto persistence…

Kerberos Double-Hop Workarounds

This post will cover some quick and dirty work-arounds to overcome the dreaded double-hop issue when conducting red team activities on Windows environments. Methods covered in this post also bleed into general Windows lateral movement techniques - not just double-hopping solutions.

If you’ve had to move laterally or conduct general systems administration on Windows environments then you’ve probably come across this obstacle - specifically with Powershell Remoting/WinRM. If you’re unsure what the double-hop issue is, it’ll be briefly covered below. Otherwise checkout this Microsoft article to get a better idea.

This post will follow a scenario (from the viewpoint of a red teamer) when your attacking box has internal network access, but is NOT joined to the domain. It’s also assuming you as the attacker just have CLI access, with Local Admin creds - also WinRM is enabled throughout the domain.
