The legitimate command-and-control (C2) framework known as Sliver is gaining more traction from threat actors as it emerges as an open source alternative to Cobalt Strike and Metasploit.

The findings come from Cybereason, which detailed its inner workings in an exhaustive analysis last week.

Sliver, developed by cybersecurity company BishopFox, is a Golang-based cross-platform post-exploitation framework that’s designed to be used by security professionals in their red team operations.

Its myriad features for adversary simulation – including dynamic code generation, in-memory payload execution, and process injection – have also made it an appealing tool for threat actors looking to gain elevated access to the target system upon gaining an initial foothold.
