Tor-Rootkit : A Python 3 Standalone Windows 10 / Linux Rootkit Using Tor


Tor-Rootkit is a Python 3 standalone Windows 10 / Linux Rootkit. The networking communication get’s established over the tor network.

How To Use

  • Clone the repo and change directory:

git clone
cd ./tor-rootkit

Build docker container:

docker build -t listener .

Run docker container:

docker run -v $(pwd)/executables:/executables/ -it listener

Deploy the executables: When the listener is up and running it generates a “executables” directory containing different payloads for different plattforms.

│ …
└ executables/

Note: The client can take some time to connect because PyInstaller executables are a bit slower and it need’s to start tor.


  • Standalone executables for Windows and Linux, including python interpreter and tor
  • the whole communication works over tor hidden services which guarantees some degree of anonymity
  • The Listener can handle multiple clients
  • The Listener generates payloads for different platforms on startup
