Presentation: PuttyRider – Pivoting from Windows to Linux in a penetration test
Pwning Windows boxes is easy. The problem is when your targets are fully patched Linux/Unix servers from the Company’s internal network.
This talk presents a technique of pivoting from a compromised Windows box to a Linux/Unix machine by taking advantage of existing Putty sessions between the two machines. The implementation of this technique is PuttyRider – a tool that will be presented and released at Defcamp 2014.
