Reverse TCP listener for built agents

Simple TCP connection channel created between agent (as client) and C2(as server - listens on configured TCP port). All traffic is sent as it is generated without sleeps or bandwidth limits.

Plugin ID: shelldot.listener.agent-reverse-tcp


  • hosts - String array of the IP-s and hostnames the agent will use to connect C2
  • port - On what port the TCP listener is listening for connection
  • handshakeBytes - Bytes used for initial handshake between C2 and agent. Should be random
  • startTime - If listener should not start right away then this value defines starting time (for example "2023-04-10T11:02:09Z")
