Brosec is an open source terminal based tool to help all the security professionals generate the right payloads and commands. It can show you all the most popular commands you can use for information gathering, Linux, Windows, web and utilize payloads.

Installing Brosec

Let’s clone the repository, first.

git clone https://github.com/gabemarshall/Brosec.git

After that install the missing dependencies.

apt-get install npm

npm install

Now, you are good to go.

Running Brosec

To run brosec, execute the script inside the folder.

cd Brosec/


As you can see below, the interface is easy to use, you just need to type the right option.

Let’s dig it a little. So, for example let’s say I have an exploit written in perl and I want to embed my own reverse payload. I type ‘5‘, and go to the reverse shell category to see all the examples. 

In another example, I’ve successfully exploited a Linux target and want to perform a Privilege Escalation attack. I type ‘2‘ and then go to the ‘Privesc‘ tab. I see some useful commands I can run against the target.

Brosec also has it’s own modules to choose between http ot ftp server. You can also encode various payloads, which it might be helpful to bypass basic security.

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.
