<b>Cobalt Strike Beacon Object File foundation for kernel exploitation using CVE-2021-21551.</b>

This is a Cobalt Strike (CS) Beacon Object File (BOF) which exploits CVE-2021-21551. It only overwrites the beacon process token with the system process token. But this BOF is mostly just a good foundation for further kernel exploitation via CS.

Clone this repository first. Then review the code, compile from source and use it in Cobalt Strike.
Load the `KernelMii.cna` script using the Cobalt Strike Script Manager. Then use the command below to execute the exploit.
Alternatively (and for testing purposes), you can directly run the compiled executable. This will spawn a command prompt as SYSTEM.
* If the vulnerable driver is not installed, you need to be local admin to install it.
* Load the vulnerable driver from memory instead of from disk.
* Delete the vulnerable driver if it was not preinstalled.
* Make the exploit stable & compatible with multiple Windows versions.
