PhishLulz – Ruby Toolset To Automate Phishing Activities

by Unallocated Author

PhishLulz is a Ruby toolset aimed at automating Phishing activities.

The VM comes with various open source tools that have been glued together. The two main components are:

PhishLulz comes with its own self-signed CA: this is needed to generate self-signed certs for the PhishingFrenzy admin UI. You will also find a bunch of cool phishing templates (which are not in PF) that you can quickly re-use in your scenarios.


  • Amazon AWS account (see main config.yaml)
  • Non-Winzozz OS (path separators are hardcoded on purpose to don’t make it compatible with Winzozz)
  • ssh, scp, openssl in PATH
  • Sane Ruby environment (RVM suggested). Install the required gems with: gem install sinatra thin watir-webdriver headless colorize datamapper dm-sqlite-adapter dm-timestamps dm-migrations fog nokogiri mail net-ssh –no-rdoc –no-ri
  • Gecko/Chrome drivers

PhishLulz Toolset:

  • phish_lulz: main script to start/stop phishing instances
  • tools/find_resources: multi-threaded subdomain discovery and fingerprinting tool
  • tools/mailboxbug: multi-threaded webmail data extruder
  • tools/mail_parser: simple script to extract html/txt from an .eml email file
  • namecheap_wrapper: WIP for automated domain registration (Automatic domain registration is still TODO, however you can play with the almost-working code for the NameCheap registrar.)

PhishLulz AWS AMI:

The public AMI id is: ami-141bb974 You want to clone that, add your SSH keys, and use your nre clone.
The following are default passwords for various services, change them.
  • MySQL root user: phishlulz_mysql
  • PhishingFrenzy admin user: phishlulz_frenzy
  • BeEF beef user: phishlulz_beef
To change the default admin user password/email for PhishingFrenzy use the Rails console:
cd /var/www/phishing-frenzy && RAILS_ENV=production rails console admin = Admin.first admin.password = "newpasswd" admin.email = "newemail" admin.save! exit
To instrument Firefox you need to have the geckodriver binary in your PATH.
Download it from https://github.com/mozilla/geckodriver/releases Same thing applies if you prefer instrumenting Chrome, you need the chromedriver.
Once you have the binary, make sure it’s in the PATH: export PATH=$PATH:path_to_driver_dir

Finally, make sure the MailBoxBug data extrusion domain has a valid HTTPS certificate.

The __cfduid cookie is used to identify individual clients behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis.

The _ga is asssociated with Google Universal Analytics - which is a significant update to Google's more commonly used analytics service. This cookie is used to distinguish unique users by assigning a randomly generated number as a client identifier. It is included in each page request in a site and used to calculate visitor, session and campaign data for the sites analytics reports. By default it is set to expire after 2 years, although this is customisable by website owners.

The _gat global object is used to create and retrieve tracker objects, from which all other methods are invoked. Therefore the methods in this list should be run only off a tracker object created using the _gat global variable. All other methods should be called using the _gaq global object for asynchronous tracking.

_gid works as a user navigates between web pages, they can use the gtag.js tagging library to record information about the page the user has seen (for example, the page's URL) in Google Analytics. The gtag.js tagging library uses HTTP Cookies to "remember" the user's previous interactions with the web pages.
