Drive Badger: open source platform for covert data exfiltration operations, ranging from small computers to big servers.

I see messages like this on text console after boot:

/opt/drivebadger/internal/kali/ 7: echo: echo: I/O error

dislocker: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

This happens if you connect more than one Drive Badger USB devices to the same computer. Or if you use separate USB devices for Drive Badger boot drive and persistent partition.


  • Make sure that you connect only one Drive Badger USB device and reboot the computer.
  • If you do this for some specific reason, should still work, but without support for some drive encryption schemes, at least Bitlocker.

From the founder...

Being in IT security business for almost 25 years, I realized, that breaking protections (or preventing it) is becoming less and less important. We are not living in Outlook Express times anymore...
The key point is the ability to keep the privileges permanent, once obtained. This becomes more and more difficult, as IT systems get more and more complicated - and this is exactly the goal of Drive Badger project: to give non-ITSEC people the ability to keep either the privileges, or the outcome of the successful break-in.
