Hades-C2 - Hades Basic Command And Control Server

Hades is a basic Command & Control server built using Python. It is currently extremely bare bones, but I plan to add more features soon. Features are a work in progress currently.

This is a project made (mostly) for me to learn Malware Development, Sockets, and C2 infrastructure setups. Currently, the server can be used for CTFs but it is still a buggy mess with a lot of things that need ironed out.

I am working on a Web UI using Flask currently so new features are being put on hold until then, if you face any issues then please be sure to create an issues request.
