Bypass AV with DKMC (Don’t Kill My Cat)

Don’t kill my cat is a tool that generates obfuscated shellcode that is stored inside of polyglot images. The image is 100% valid and also 100% valid shellcode. The idea is to avoid sandbox analysis since it’s a simple “legit” image. For now the tool rely on PowerShell the execute the final shellcode payload.

Why it’s called don’t kill my cat? Since I suck at finding names for tools, I decided to rely on the fact that the default BMP image is a cat to name the tool.

Presentation on how it works internally can be found here.

Basic Flow

  • Generate shellcode (meterpreter / Beacon)
  • Embed the obfuscated shellcode inside the image
  • PowerShell download the image and execute the image as shellcode
  • Get your shell
