Its pretty obvious to most of you that to cover your tracks on a system your need to clear the command history files and the systems log files. A lot of articles have been written on this topic most of them showing you how to cover your tracks via Metasploit or manually doing it on a Kali Linux.
I am perfectly fine with the Metasploit approach but the manual nature of the process on Kali Linux is unacceptable. And for that reason i wrote this tool, ChainSaw.
Its a script that shreds all log files and bash history from a Kali Linux system before moving on to delete itself once the job is done
Here is how...
- ChainSaw.py must be stored independently in the /root directory.
- Root privileges
- The shred tool
- This tool will shred the log files off of the system you run it on. Once it runs all log files will be unrecoverable.
- The ChainSaw.py file automatically erases itself when it finishes its job, so make a copy of it or go back to my repository and clone it again.
- Finally, this tool is meant for educational purposes only, i will not be held responsible for what you do with it!!!
- git clone github.com/Inffinite/ChainSaw
- copy the ChainSaw.py file into the /root directory
- python ChainSaw.py
Once you get to this point the rest is pretty straight forward.
