MD5 Checksum error from python >> .exe from windows 7 to Kali Box - Why?

Hey People

IM on the privesc of a box and have converted a python exploit into a windows exe with pyinstaller 2.1 to run it locally.

When I send it via NC to my kali box the md5sum is different ( shows corruption) .

Plowing through ii get it onto the box and it has zero bytes so I could not even attempt to run it.

What could be happening to corrupt the file?

Thanks

  • its best if you base64 it with cat 'file.exe' | base64 then copy the base64 there and then base64 -d '' > file.exe. but the problem is windows doesnt have a base64 decrypt program except the one on powershell here

    base64 file.exe works too

      If you need help with something, PM me how far you've got already, what you've tried etc (I won't respond to profile comments). And remember to +respect me if I helped you ; )
  • also be sure when you have the file in the decrypted string
    to pipe it with this >
    so maybe like $decrypted > file.exe or something like that
