Hades is a proof of concept loader that combines several evasion technques with the aim of bypassing the defensive mechanisms commonly used by modern AV/EDRs.
The easiest way, is probably building the project on Linux using
git clone https://github.com/f1zm0/hades && cd hades make
Then you can bring the executable to a x64 Windows host and run it with
PS > .\hades.exe -h '||' '||' | '||''|. '||''''| .|'''.| || || ||| || || || . ||.. ' ||''''|| | || || || ||''| ''|||. || || .''''|. || || || . '|| .||. .||. .|. .||. .||...|' .||.....| |'....|' version: dev [11/01/23] :: @f1zm0 Usage: hades -f <filepath> [-t selfthread|remotethread|queueuserapc] Options: -f, --file <str> shellcode file path (.bin) -t, --technique <str> injection technique [selfthread, remotethread, queueuserapc]
Inject shellcode that spawms
calc.exe with queueuserapc technique:
.\hades.exe -f calc.bin -t queueuserapc
User-mode hooking bypass with syscall RVA sorting (
NtQueueApcThread hooked with frida-trace and custom handler)
Instrumentation callback bypass with indirect syscalls (injected DLL is from syscall-detect by jackullrich)
Direct syscall version
In the latest release, direct syscall capabilities have been replaced by indirect syscalls provided by acheron. If for some reason you want to use the previous version of the loader that used direct syscalls, you need to explicitly pass the
direct_syscalls tag to the compiler, which will figure out what files needs to be included and excluded from the build.
GOOS=windows GOARCH=amd64 go build -ldflags “-s -w” -tags=‘direct_syscalls’ -o dist/hades_directsys.exe cmd/hades/main.go
