Shellerator is a simple command-line tool aimed to help pentesters quickly generate one-liner reverse/bind shells in multiple languages (Bash, Powershell, Java, Python...). Another similar project for the generation of one-line file downloading commands is based on this code Uberfile

This project is installed by default in the pentesting OS Exegol

Example (with menus)


The install is pretty simple, just clone this git and install the requirements.

git clone
cd shellerator
python3 install --user


Usage is dead simple too. ``` usage: [-h] [-b | -r] [-t TYPE] [-p LPORT] [-i LHOST]

Generate a bind/reverse shell

optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -l, --list Print all the types of shells shellerator can generate -b, --bind-shell Generate a bind shell (you connect to the target) -r, --reverse-shell Generate a reverse shell (the target connects to you)(Default)

Bind shell options: -t TYPE, --type TYPE Type of the shell to generate (Bash, Powershell, Java...) -p LPORT, --port LPORT Listener Port

Reverse shell options: -t TYPE, --type TYPE Type of the shell to generate (Bash, Powershell, Java...) -i LHOST, --ip LHOST Listener IP address -p LPORT, --port LPORT Listener Port ``` If required options are not set, the tool will start in TUI (Terminal User Interface) with pretty menus but CLI works like a charm too.

Example (without menus)

To-Do List

Things to add

Here are some things to add that I have in mind, I'll work on that asap - Add bindshells - Add encrypted shells and separate them from bind/rev ? - Add webshells - Add some kind of option to help user get info on how to improve shell/tty (rlwrap, stty, ConPty (cf. PayloadsAllTheThings))
