Bantam – Advanced PHP Backdoor Management Suite


An advanced PHP backdoor management suite, with a lightweight server footprint, multi-threaded communication, payload streaming, and an advanced payload generation and obfuscation suite.

Features end to end encryption with request unique encryption keys designed to bypass WAF and IDS systems. It incorporates several payload randomization and obfuscation techniques to help prevent detection when encryption is not possible.

Bantam is an ideal software for linux PHP post exploitation privesc making it a breeze to upload enumeration scripts. Bantam also has a plugin system making it easy to add scripts and features to the ui. It is programmed in C# and runs on windows, and Linux using wine.

Bantam Main


End to end request and response encryption –

  • AES-256 bit encryption on request & response data using openssl or mcrypt
  • Response encryption keys are newly generated and embedded into the request payload for every request making every response unique, preventing detection from WAF and IDS systems
  • Request encryption keys can be embedded using a pre-shared key/iv, or use a pre-shared key with a randomly generated IV that is passed through a known request variable making every request signature unique

  • Windows Screenshot Grabber – Grabs a screenshot of the current screen
  • Plugins – Dynamically include a php payload into the ui to be executed by setting up a plugin into the settings.xml
  • Reset connection – Removes the current shell and session info from ui, re-adds the shell and tests the connection
  • Update ping – Updates the ping to the selected shell
  • Edit settings – Opens the current shell settings into the ui to modify

  • Bypass disabled_functions & open_basedir with chankro

Backdoor generator –

  • Generates a php backdoor payload tailored for your settings

User Agent Switcher –

Randomize or customize the useragent used in requests

Proxy Settings –

Supports Socks and HTTP proxies

Mass Execute –

  • Executes php payloads on all servers
  • Port Scanner – Distributed port scan that splits the work between selected servers and port scans a remote host
  • Plugins – Dynamically include a custom payload from the settings.xml into the gui to be mass executed

File Browser – 

  • Transverses file directories, and saves directory tree during current session
  • Copy File
  • Read File Content
  • Delete file
  • Rename File

    Vectors – /

Console –

  • Send shell commands to the server using the vector selected in options form, saves history during current session

Logs –

  • Shows various logs and errors that could be generated by the application or server, adjustable verbosity in options form.

Options – 

  • Logging
    Log level – Determines which logs will be shown, higher level will show more logs
    Enable Global logs
  • Request settings
    Max execution time – allows requests to run for max php execution time
    Disable error logs – disables error logging for requests
    Shell code vector – Shell code execution method (system/exec/shell_exec/passthru/popen/backticks)
    Timeout (milliseconds) – Default request timeout
    Max Post size (KiB) – Default max post size
    Max Cookie size (B) – Locked to 4096 bytes
  • Request Obfuscation
    Inject Random Comments
    Injects comments with random text into the php payloads
    Comment frequency – Determines how many locations to inject comments into
