MultiDump - Post-Exploitation Tool For Dumping And Extracting LSASS Memory Discreetly

MultiDump is a post-exploitation tool written in C for dumping and extracting LSASS memory discreetly, without triggering Defender alerts, with a handler written in Python.

Blog post:

MultiDump supports LSASS dump via ProcDump.exe or comsvc.dll, it offers two modes: a local mode that encrypts and stores the dump file locally, and a remote mode that sends the dump to a handler for decryption and analysis.

As with all LSASS related tools, Administrator/SeDebugPrivilege priviledges are required.

The handler depends on Pypykatz to parse the LSASS dump, and impacket to parse the registry saves. They should be installed in your enviroment. If you see the error All detection methods failed, it's likely the Pypykatz version is outdated.

By default, MultiDump uses the Comsvc.dll method and saves the encrypted dump in the current directory.

If --procdump is used, ProcDump.exe will be writtern to disk to dump LSASS.

In remote mode, MultiDump connects to the handler's listener.

./ -r 9001[i] Listening on port 9001 for encrypted key...
MultiDump.exe -r

The key is encrypted with the handler's IP and port. When MultiDump connects through a proxy, the handler should use the --override-ip option to manually specify the IP address for key generation in remote mode, ensuring decryption works correctly by matching the decryption IP with the expected IP set in MultiDump -r.

An additional option to dump the SAM, SECURITY and SYSTEM hives are available with --reg, the decryption process is the same as LSASS dumps. This is more of a convenience feature to make post exploit information gathering easier.

Building MultiDump

Open in Visual Studio, build in Release mode.

Customising MultiDump

It is recommended to customise the binary before compiling, such as changing the static strings or the RC4 key used to encrypt them, to do so, another Visual Studio project EncryptionHelper, is included. Simply change the key or strings and the output of the compiled EncryptionHelper.exe can be pasted into MultiDump.c and Common.h.

Self deletion can be toggled by uncommenting the following line in Common.h:


To further evade string analysis, most of the output messages can be excluded from compiling by commenting the following line in Debug.h:

//#define DEBUG

MultiDump might get detected on Windows 10 22H2 (19045) (sort of), and I have implemented a fix for it (sort of), the investigation and implementation deserves a blog post itself:
