A few short years ago, penetration testers did not have to work too hard for their malware command channels to execute. Fast forward to today in the age of Endpoint Detection and Response, User Behavior Analytics, and advanced built-in O/S defenses, your standard toolkit for malware generation/execution does not work anymore.
All is not lost!
Using some relatively simple programming techniques, and tactical changes, we can still gain malware execution to establish our C2 channels. With some additional tactical changes post-exploitation, we can still move around below the radar but we need to move with greater care and stealth than ever before.
