DOUBLEPULSAR Payload Execution / Neutralization

DOUBLEPULSAR Payload Execution / Neutralization
Posted Oct 1, 2019
Authored by Luke Jennings, wvu, Shadow Brokers, Equation Group, zerosum0x0, Jacob Robles | Site metasploit.com

This Metasploit module executes a Metasploit payload against the Equation Group's DOUBLEPULSAR implant for SMB as popularly deployed by ETERNALBLUE. While this module primarily performs code execution against the implant, the "Neutralize implant" target allows you to disable the implant.
