Brute Ratel v1.1 codename Stoffel’s Escape is now available for download. This release brings several new feature additions and improvements to the Badger, Ratel Server and Commander, including a complete re-write of the badger’s core to avoid some subtle detection techniques following the Palo Alto blog. A quick summary of the changes can be found in the release notes. The release name (Stoffel’s Escape) gives subtle hints foreshadowing the nature of this release. This release could not have been better without the support from the blue team community. As BRc4 initially started as a personal project two years back, there were still some remnants of IOCs that needed to be changed. Palo Alto’s reversing blog came in as a surprise, but it only helped to rebuild the payload and optimize it in a certain way to avoid as many IOCs as possible. This release was focused to overcome all the IOCs listed in public or private blogs, conferences and github detections, till date, about Badger and change them to avoid attribution and detection.
