Modlishka -- Advanced Phishing | Bypass Two Factor Authentication

We all try to secure our all online accounts and social media accounts and we turn on the Two-Factor Authentication or Two-Step Verification. Then we think that we are now safe. Sometimes we check a phishing page with wrong password. But Modlishka can bypass Two-factor authentication (2FA).

What is Modlishka?


Modlishka, a reverse proxy automated advanced phishing tool which is written in Go language.It is called the most powerful and ferocious phishing tool ever created. This tool can perform advance level of phishing. Modlishka can easily bypass two factor authentication running on Gmail, YahooMail, RadiffMail, Facebook etc and catch the credentials like username, password, two factor authentication token.



The best thing of Modlishka is this tool doesn't require any saved phishing page or templates to perform phishing. It uses reverse proxy to open the website live.

How Modlishka Works?


Modlishka works on both social engineering and MITM (Man-In-The-Middle) attack technique. Modlishka server stays between the target website and victim and act like a proxy for victim. The requests are sending from victim and target website passes through Modlishka server. Just like the following picture:



That's why Modlishka can easily grab the username and passwords given by user and the authentication token it also can capture the sessions and cookies between user and website. Attacker can also use them to make web session.
In this process user will not even realize for a moment that the account was stolen. That's why Modlishka is a very dangerous tool.

Modlishka is very easy to set up that makes this tool more dangerous. To be safe from this tool we need to check the link we are clicking very carefully, and it will use third party SSL certificate, supose some one send a phishing link of Gmail using Modlishka then this phishing site will not have Google's SSL certificate.
Be aware and try to not click in any links.

How to Set up Modlishka in Kali Linux


This tool is written in Golang. We need to install Golang in our Kali Linux system. Apply the following command in terminal.


apt-get install golang

 The screenshot is following:


After installing Golang we need to set our GOPATH, this is just like we set path for Java. We will do this using following command:

export GOPATH=$HOME/go
The screenshot is following


Let we check that our path 'go' is set in the root directory or not, to check this we type following command:

echo $GOPATH

The screenshot is below:


We can see in the screenshot that or go directory is under the root directory. Yes it's perfect.

After setting the path we need to download Modlishka from Github to do this we are going to use following command:

go get -u github.com/drk1wi/Modlishka
Remember that we didn't use https or www before the github link and this command will not show how much percentage we downloaded it will download total tool, we need to wait some time here the screenshot is following:


Then we need to go to the downloaded folder by using the command:

cd root/go/src/github.com/drk1wi/Modlishka
The output of the command is below



Now we can compile Modlishka but before compile this we generate the SSL certificate , here we configure in local host but we also can use our registered domain (Homograph will better ) and SSL certificate here.

First of all we generate a RSA private key by applying following command:

openssl genrsa -out MyCA.key 2048
We can use any name of the key file.

Here is the screenshot of the command:


In the next we are going to generate SSL certificate. The command is following:

openssl req -x509 -new -nodes -key MyCA.key -sha256 -days 1024 -out MyCA.pem
The screenshot is following.


In the information field section we can use any fake information. Feel this looks like target domains SSL information.

Now we can check our SSL certificate and key using ls command:

ls
The following screenshot shows us the key file(MyCA.key) and the certificate(MyCA.pem):


Now we open the key file in leafpad using following command:

leafpad MyCA.key
And copy the whole text then close it, we use Ctrl+A to select all and Ctrl+C to copy the whole thing.

After copy the key we need to paste it in autocert.go file in plugin directory
open this with leafpad text editor applying following command:

leafpad plugin/autocert.go



Paste the key in in the place of the PASTE_YOUR_CA_CERT_KEY_HERE. We will remember that our key will inside of  '  '. See following screenshot:


Save and close it and then we will copy and paste our SSL certificate. Use following command to copy the certificate.

leafpad MyCA.pem
The screenshot is following:

We will copy the whole thing and paste in the autocert.go file. Let's again open the file in leafpad text editor by using following command:

leafpad plugin/autocert.go
Then paste it in the place of PASTE_YOUR_CA_CERT_HERE . The screenshot is following:
Save and close autocert.go file.

Yah we all set up now we are going to compile Modlishka using following command.

make
If we did everything well then it will look like following screenshot.

Now we can check the options by applying the command

./dist/proxy -h
The screenshot of the command is below

Then we configure a target website for phishing. By default Modlishka use google's domain as target. Use the command to change target domain.

nano templates/google.com_gsuite.json
The screenshot of the command is below:

Before running Modlishka we need to import our custom SSL certificates in our browser. If we use registered domain then we don't need to do this cause in that case we use original SSL certificate.

So open firefox web browser and go to

Prefernces > Advanced > Certificates > View Cretificates > Import



The select the MyCA.pem file in the directory root/go/src/github.com/drk1wi/Modlishka

The screenshot is following:


Now we are all set to start Modlishka server. We did not changed the configuration file so we start using following command :

./dist/proxy -config templates/google.com_gsuite.json

Then the tool will be started in our localhost. The screenshot of Modlishka is following :

Modlishka is started now go to firefox browser and we go to the https://www.loopback.modlishka.io and this will open Google.com in live mode.



Now go to log in page and try to log in with fake password or 2 factor authenticate.


This is a grate tool, isn't it ? Write your thoughts in the comment section. Thanks for read this.

                            But I have a question, this was to try on our own LAN but what if we want to send the link to another person? Can we do it using a free domain host?

                              This is not made for hosting as a website. A simple solution is we can use ngrok or portmap services to make it accessible via internet.

                              I have done all the setting you mentioned but i am getting problem on last step which means after i am putting the command "./dist/proxy -config templates/google.com_gsuite.json". By opening gmail it is showing as "This browser or app may not be secure". Then i used different website other than gmail to login but getting a error of "tls handshake error from 127.0.0.1 eof".

                              I am using Kali linux 2020.1 with firefox quantum 68.2 version.

                                    Hi we have asked your question to Modlishka developers. They answered "check if the tool is listening on all ports and you will have to create your own certificate to get rid of the remaining tls related warnings.". You can check our conversions here

                                                Leafpad is a text editor of Gnome Environment. After Kali new update it got xfce. mousepad is also good editor. Simply you can replace "leafpad" to "mousepad".

                                                      This file system was for previous version of Kali, now you need to use newer file system where root user is not default and xfce. You need to choose your own non-root user and those file system and folders.

                                                        Get another SIM card with the same number. Your problem is solved. Using Modlishka we can trick user to bypass two-step verification, but if anyone don't know this we can't use phishing technique.

                                                        HI I installed modlishka and everything seems to be working fine apart from one issue i face:
                                                        If i try to log in from firefox its telling me couldnt sign you in after just enterring the email address and pressing next.
                                                        In chrome after putting the email address and pressing next i get the message cookies disabled.
                                                        i aready checked the browser settings cookies are all allowed and i even added the link in the cookie list just to see, but same problem.

                                                        Do i need to adjust anything in the json file or where could my problem be ?
                                                        Any help would be much appriciated

                                                          This happens with us also. We have seen in this problem happens with lots of people.
                                                          You can check this issue on modlishka repository. But the developers didn't replayed. Did this happens with only Google?

                                                            Thats also my problem the developer seems to have disappeared as he hasn't replied to any of the post there.
                                                            At this stage I only checked with google cause that was my main reason to look into this program now im currently searching for another one which would give me the same benefits as modlishka.
                                                            I think I will check it with other sides aswell to see if it is only google or more, cause that would actually indicate at least in the direction were we need to look at.
                                                            I couldn't find any other (active) side whos still dealing with modlishka they all got tutorials, but when it comes to people who need assistance they all seem to have disappeared unfortunately....

                                                                It is simple. It means you need to install ssh. Try following commands on terminal:

                                                                sudo apt update
                                                                sudo apt install openssh-server

                                                                That's all. Hope this help you. Thanks.
