Weevely 3 – Weaponized PHP Web Shell


Weevely is a command line weaponized PHP web shell dynamically extended over the network at runtime and is designed for remote administration and pen testing. It provides a telnet-like console through a PHP script running on the target, even in restricted environments.

The low footprint agent and over 30 modules shape an extensible framework to administrate, conduct a pen-test, post-exploit, and audit remote web accesses in order to escalate privileges and pivot deeper in the internal networks.

Weevely 3 - Weaponized PHP Web Shell

The remote agent is a very low footprint PHP script that receives dynamically injected code from the client, extending the client functionalities over the network at run-time. The agent code is polymorphic and hardly detectable by AV and HIDS. The communication is covered and obfuscated within the HTTP protocol using steganographic techniques.

We did mention Weevely a couple of years back at v1.0: Weevely – PHP Stealth Tiny Web Shell
