Weevely - Weaponized web shell


weevely generate <password> <path>
weevely <URL> <password> [cmd]


Weevely is a web shell designed for post-exploitation purposes that can be extended over the network at runtime.

Upload weevely PHP agent to a target web server to get remote shell access to it. It has more than 30 modules to assist administrative tasks, maintain access, provide situational awareness, elevate privileges, and spread into the target network.

Read the https://github.com/epinna/weevely3/wiki/Install page to install weevely and its dependencies.

Read the https://github.com/epinna/weevely3/wiki/Getting-Started page to generate an agent and connect to it.

Browse the https://github.com/epinna/weevely3/wiki to read examples and use cases.


  • Shell access to the target
  • SQL console pivoting on the target
  • HTTP/HTTPS proxy to browse through the target
  • Upload and download files
  • Spawn reverse and direct TCP shells
  • Audit remote target security
  • Port scan pivoting on target
  • Mount the remote filesystem
  • Bruteforce SQL accounts pivoting on the target


The agent is a small, polymorphic PHP script hardly detected by AV and the communication protocol is obfuscated within HTTP requests.
