Information

This tool has been developed to work with Python 2.

It by default will use the template and keystore located in the folder “payload” to inject and sign the infected apk.

If you would like to sign the infected application with your own certificate, generate a new keystore and place it in the “payload” folder and rename to the existing keystore or change the reference in the kwetza.py.

The same can be done for payload templates.

The password for the default keystore is, well, “password”.
