Aclpwn.Py – Exploit ACL Based Privilege Escalation Paths in Active Directory


Aclpwn.py is a tool that interacts with BloodHound to identify and exploit ACL based privilege escalation paths.

Aclpwn.Py - Exploit ACL Based Privilege Escalation Paths in Active Directory


It takes a starting and ending point and will use Neo4j pathfinding algorithms to find the most efficient ACL based privilege escalation path.

Features of Aclpwn.Py Exploit ACL Based Privilege Escalation Paths in Active Directory

Aclpwn.Py currently has the following features:

  • Direct integration with BloodHound and the Neo4j graph database (fast pathfinding)
  • Supports any reversible ACL based attack chain (no support for resetting user passwords right now)
  • Advanced pathfinding (Dijkstra) to find the most efficient paths
  • Support for exploitation with NTLM hashes (pass-the-hash)
  • Saves restore state, easy rollback of changes
  • Can be run via a SOCKS tunnel
  • Written in Python (2.7 and 3.5+), so OS independent

Installation of Aclpwn.py ACL Based Privilege Escalation

Aclpwn.py is compatible with both Python 2.7 and 3.5+. It requires the neo4j-driver, impacket and ldap3 libraries. You can install aclpwn.py via pip: pip install aclpwn. For Python 3, you will need the python36 branch of impacket since the master branch (and versions published on PyPI) are Python 2 only at this point.

This tool does not exploit any vulnerabilities, but relies on misconfigured (often because of delegated privileges) or insecure default ACLs. To solve these issues, it is important to identify potentially dangerous ACLs in your Active Directory environment with BloodHound. For detection, Windows Event Logs can be used.

Vulhub – Pre-Built Vulnerable Docker Environments For Learning To Hack


Vulhub is an open-source collection of pre-built vulnerable docker environments for learning to hack. No pre-existing knowledge of docker is required, just execute two simple commands and you have a vulnerable environment.

Vulhub - Pre-Built Vulnerable Docker Environments For Learning To Hack


Features of Vulhub Pre-Built Vulnerable Docker Environments For Learning To Hack

Vulhub contains many frameworks, databases, applications, programming languages and more such as:

  • Drupal
  • ffmpeg
  • CouchDB
  • ActiveMQ
  • Glassfish
  • Joombla
  • JBoss
  • Kibana
  • Laravel
  • Rails
  • Python
  • Tomcat

And many, many more.

To use Vulhub Pre-Built Vulnerable Docker Environments For Learning To Hack

Install the docker/docker-compose on Ubuntu 20.04:

It is recommended to use a VPS of at least 1GB memory to build a vulnerability environment. The your-ip mentioned in the documentation refers to the IP address of your VPS. If you are using a virtual machine, it refers to your virtual machine IP, not the IP inside the docker container.

LibInjection – Detect SQL Injection (SQLi) and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)


LibInjection is a C library to Detect SQL Injection (SQLi) and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) through lexical analysis of real-world Attacks.

LibInjection - Detect SQL Injection (SQLi) and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)


SQLi and other injection attacks remain the top OWASP and CERT vulnerability. Current detection attempts frequently involve a myriad of regular expressions which are not only brittle and error-prone but also proven by Hanson and Patterson at Black Hat 2005 to never be a complete solution. LibInjection is a new open-source C library that detects SQLi using lexical analysis. With little upfront knowledge of what SQLi is, the algorithm has been trained on tens of thousands of real SQLi attacks and hundreds of millions of user inputs taken from a Top 50 website for high precision and accuracy.

In addition, the algorithm categorizes SQLi attacks and provides templates for new attacks or new fuzzing algorithms.

LibInjection currently supports:

  • C and C++
  • PHP
  • Python
  • Lua
  • Java (external port)
  • [LuaJIT/FFI]

LibInjection is available for integration into applications, web application firewalls, or porting to other programming languages.
