Offensive Lua is a collection of offensive security scripts written in Lua with FFI. The scripts run with LuaJIT (v2.0.5) on Microsoft Windows to perform common tasks.

  • Run an EXE
  • Bypass UAC
  • File, Networking or Registry
  • Common Tasks (e.g. bind a shell)

Lua is a lesser used but very useful choice for post-exploitation scripting language. It’s flexible, lightweight, easy to embed, runs interpreted or as bytecode from memory and allows for JIT to interact with the host OS libraries.
