Hackish one-liner memory-only backdoor agent which hides from ps
#!/usr/bin/env python
# This script prints a simple one-liner memory-only backdoor agent which hides from ps.
# It renames itself within the process list using a really hackish (AND POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS) /proc/self/mem rewrite
# and spawns a shell on port 9999. Just an experiment, there are simplest way to run unnoticed in the
# process list (see the technique used by EmPyre: https://github.com/adaptivethreat/EmPyre)
