Bring Your Own Land (BYOL) – A Novel Red Teaming Technique
One of most significant recent developments in sophisticated
offensive operations is the use of “Living off the Land” (LotL)
techniques by attackers. These techniques leverage legitimate tools
present on the system, such as the PowerShell scripting language, in
order to execute attacks. The popularity of PowerShell as an offensive
tool culminated in the development of entire Red Team frameworks based
around it, such as Empire and PowerSploit.
In addition, the execution of PowerShell can be obfuscated through the
use of tools such as “Invoke-Obfuscation”.
