Generate a Windows Dropper EXE

A dropper is an executable that drops a document to disk, opens it, and silently executes an attacker's payload in the background. Attacks -> Packages -> Windows Dropper will produce a Windows Dropper for you.

Embedded File is the file to embed in the executable. You may use any file type here.

File Name is the name of the file when it's dropped to disk. You should make this name match the planned name for your dropper as much as possible. Cobalt Strike will drop the embedded file to the user's Documents folder.

Press Generate to generate the dropper executable.

Use an icon editor to change the executable's icon to look like the Embedded File.

Cobalt Strike's Artifact Kit produces the Windows Dropper executable.
