Evilginx: Advanced MiTM Attack Framework with 2-factor Authentication Bypass

Evilginx is a MiTM attack framework that can steal user credentials through phishing, but instead of serving of sign-in templates pages, it becomes a relay between the real website and the phished user. So, during the interaction between phished user and real website, Evilginx is able to collect all transmitted data, such as usernames and passwords, authentication tokens (cookies), etc.

Since it’s able to steal authentication tokens sent as cookies, it’s also capable to bypass any form of 2FA and to remotely take over user’s account or similar.

If you want to install from source, you need to make sure that you’ve installed GO 1.10.0+ (download) and that you’ve set up  $GOPATHenvironment variable properly. After proper installation, add the following to your ~/.profile:

$ export GOPATH=$HOME/go
$ export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin:$GOPATH/bin

And then load it with source ~/.profiles.

$ make: dep: Command not found
$ Makefile:8: recipe for target 'deps' failed
$ make: *** [deps] Error 127

On Debian systems install:

$ apt install go-dep

or go with (RedHat):

$ go get -u

To install evilginx2, run the following:

$ sudo apt-get install git make
$ go get -u
$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ make

Run evilginx2 from local directory:

$ sudo ./bin/evilginx -p ./phishlets/

or install it globally:

$ sudo make install
$ sudo evilginx

Installing with Docker

First step is to build the container:

$ docker build . -t evilginx2

Then you can run it:

$ docker run -it -p 53:53/udp -p 80:80 -p 443:443 evilginx2

        Phishlets directory path

To see all available commands, just type help or help <command>.

IMPORTANT: Make sure that there is no service listening on ports TCP 443TCP 80 and UDP 53. You may need to shutdown apache or nginx and any service used for resolving DNS that may be running.

$ sudo service systemd-resolved stop

If you experimenting with domain/LAN/DMZ and your /etc/resolv.conf has a nameserver set to:
