The Veil pen-testing platform provides some powerful tools that will hide your attack from antivirus scanners – and Veil even supports Metasploit payloads.
Veil is a penetration-testing framework that was originally designed to evade antivirus protection on the target system. Since its first release three years ago, Veil has expanded to include other payload delivery options, and it even comes with some post-exploitation capabilities. The original Veil release only supported three payload shellcode injection options. New versions can incorporate the complete Metasploit Windows payload system.
Veil is capable of bypassing antivirus solutions deployed on endpoints during a pen-testing session. To bypass antivirus protection, Veil generates random and unique payloads for exploits. This ability to make random changes to the payload is similar to polymorphic malware that changes as it moves from host to host, making it much more difficult to discover than traditional malware, which has a distinct signature. Veil's exploits are compatible with popular penetration testing tool frameworks like Metasploit, which makes it very easy to incorporate Metasploit into your existing penetration testing routine. Veil aggregates various shellcode injection techniques across multiple languages, putting the focus on automation and usability.
The original purpose of Veil was to evade antivirus protection by morphing the attack in random ways that would not turn up on an anitvirus signature. As the project began to evolve and take on additional capabilities, the original antivirus-evading component was renamed Veil-Evasion.
Veil-Evasion can use custom or Metasploit-generated shellcode, and you can easily integrate third-party tools, such as Hyperion, PEScrambler, and BackDoor Factory.
