Hack via PDF

To launch the attack, just generate and send the target PDF file.

The utility is available at GitHub so it is easy to perform the attack on any Linux OS or emulator with Python.



> git clone https://github.com/deepzec/Bad-Pdf.git.
> cd Bad-Pdf
> python badpdf.py
> chmod +x badpdf.py

Next IP, file and interface, nothing complicated.



If everything turns out the file should be sent to the potential target, you can use social networks or e-mail.

A bit of software to exploit this vulnerability: FreeRDP, pth-winexe (githab).
