FakeImageExploiter stores all records in apache2 webroot, zips (.zip) the specialist, begins apache2 and metasploit services(handler), and gives a URL to send to target (triggers agent.zip download). When the casualty runs our executable, our photo will be downloaded and opened in the default picture watcher, our malicious payload will be executed, and we will get a meterpreter session.

However, it additionally stores the operator (not ziped) into Fake ImageExploiter/output folder in the event that we wish to convey agent.jpg.exe utilizing another different attack vector.
