Focus on The Social-Engineer Toolkit (SET) v5.2 “Urban Camping”


The Social-Engineer Toolkit (SET) version 5.2 codename “Urban Camping” has been released.

This version adds a complete rewrite of the PowerShell injection techniques within SET and
incorporates an automatic process downgrade attack detailed here:
The attack will automatically detect if PowerShell is installed, then detect what
platform its running on. If 64 bit is detected, it will automatically downgrade the process to a 32
bit process for native shellcode injection.
