SneakyEXE - Embedding "UAC-Bypassing" Function Into Your Custom Payload

A tool which helps you embedding UAC-Bypassing function into your custom Win32 payloads ( x86_64 architecture specifically )
  • Tested on Windows 7,8,10 ( 64bit)
  • Free and Open-sourced with full source codes published


Linux Windows
Architecture Optional x86_64
Python 3.x > YES NO
Module termcolor NO
Distros Any Windows
Version Any Windows 7,8,10

[ Linux ]:
This tool does require a python module called termcolor. When you run the script it will automatically install it if you haven't, but if you want the tool to function faster, i would suggest you doing it manually before proceeding
$ pip3 install termcolor #installing termcolor
$ #Temporary usage only, installation below
$ git clone
$ cd SneakyEXE/Linux
$ chmod +x
$ ./sneakyexe <option>=<path to payload/code> out=<where you wanna save>
[ Windows ]:
  • visit
  • Download the repository, "clone or download" -> "Download ZIP"
  • Unzip it into your optional directory
  • Change dir to \SneakyEXE\Win32\
  • Execute sneakyexe.exe ( or sys\sneakyexe.exe for an improved startup speed )
  • ( Optional : you can copy sneakyexe.exe to whatever directory you want and delete the unzipped one )
- NOTE -
The payload can only be successfully executed by the user with Administrator privilege. Users with limited token wouldn't succeed.


[ Linux ]:
$ git clone
$ cd SneakyEXE
$ chmod +x
$ sudo ./
[ Windows ]:
  • ( Soon will if many people demand )


  • Built on Opensuse Leap 15.0
  • Developed using Python 3.6.5
  • Developed with gcc ( GCC-8.2.0-3) 8.2.0 for the payload compilation

[ Payload Embedding ]
  • In order to build the elevator from source, you will need gcc gcc 8.2.0 ( c11 ) and a AMD64 machine with Windows 10(7/8) 64-bit installed.
# Windows 10/7/8 (AMD64)
# Open cmd.exe / powershell.exe
>> gcc -mwindows -o <output>.exe /source/main.c

[ GUI Version ]
  • In order to build the GUI version from source, you will need Python 3.5.6 ( or higher ) with modules like Pyinstaller, Pillow and a AMD64 machine with Windows 10 (7/8) 64-bit installed.
# Assume we already had  Python preinstalled
# Open cmd.exe / powershell.exe
>> pip install pillow      # Installing Pillow
>> pip install pyinstaller # Installing Pyinstaller
>> mkdir compile           # Optional directory name
>> cd compile
>> pyinstaller --windowed --onefile --icon=Icon.ico /source/Win32/ # For sysematic version ( /sys ), remove --onefile
>> cd dist
>> GUI.exe                 # The compiled executable :}

This tool does embed UACme which was originally coded by hfiref0x but the rest was pretty much all coded by me ( Zenix Blurryface )
