|0006818||Kali Linux||[All Projects] Kali Package Bug||public||2020-11-03 06:12||2021-09-14 20:20|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0006818: Reverse shell on netcat does not provide command prompt|
|Description||When I exploit an issue and obtain a connect back via a reverse shell, I usually get a command prompt that allows me to move further ahead with the exploit. However, I updated the Kali package on 30-10-2020, and later found that I get the reverse shell upon a successful exploit, but I don't get a command prompt. |
As a result of this I have to use the meterpreter payload and exploit the service.
|Steps To Reproduce||Steps to reproduce are as follows:|
1. Identify a vulnerable service on a victim machine.
2. Generate a msfvenom shellcode using windows/shell/reverse_tcp as payload.
3. Keep a netcat listener ready.
4. Run the exploit with above payload.
5. The payload should produce a connect back on your netcat listener.
6. Observer that you don't have the command prompt.
Are you specifying any level of verbosity with your netcat listener command?
I've had that issue when I didn't specify any.
||Yes. I use the nc -nlvp <add listening port> . But the issue is persisting.|
Have you tried not using the 'p' flag, since it's already listening locally & it seems kinda redundant?
sudo nc -vnl 8080
Which should listen on port 8080 on 0.0.0.0.
Does it still crash?
