Proof-of-concept obfuscation toolkit for C# post-exploitation tools. This will perform the below actions for a C# visual studio project.

  • Change the tool name
  • Change the project GUID
  • Obfuscate compatible strings in source code files based on obfuscation method entered by user
  • Removes one-line comments (e.g. // this is a comment)
  • Remove PDB string option for compiled release .NET assembly

String Candidates Not Obfuscated

The below string candidates are not included in obfuscation

  • Strings less than 3 characters
  • Strings using string interpolation (e.g., Console.WriteLine($"Hello, {name}! Today is {date.DayOfWeek}, it's {date:HH:mm} now.");)
  • Case statements as they need to be static values
  • Const vars as they need to be static values
  • Strings in method signatures as they need to be static values
  • Line with " => " as used in switch statement and needs to be static value.
  • is in an if statement when doing comparison as the values compared must be static
  • Strings within Regexes
  • Override strings as they need to be static values
  • The below random edge cases for strings, as they have caused issues when encoding/decoding
    • String starting with or ending with '
    • ""' in the line
    • + @" in the line
    • """ in the line
    • "" in the line
    • Encoding.Unicode.GetString in the line
    • Encoding.Unicode.GetBytes in the line
    • Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes in the line
    • Line starting with " and ending with ")]. This is typically used for command line switches and needs to be static value.
