MSC worm (Major SSH Crisis)

Malware worm designed to conduct dictionary attack via SSH

Badge image#2 Project of the Week

Created a worm to traverse a network and conduct a dictionary attack via SSH on hosts discovered with SSH service open. Upon successful authentication, the worm self replicates, installs necessary python libraries bypassing sudo privileges, executes a reverse shell payload, and establishes permanence via writing to users cronjobs.
