What are actions?

Actions are special messages that don't adhere to the normal message types that you see for the rest of the features in this section. There are only a handful of these messages:

  • Action: Checkin - Initial checkin messages and key exchanges

  • Action: get_tasking - Getting tasking

  • Action: post_response - Sending tasking responses

    • Inside of this is where the features listed throughout this section appear

  • Action: upload - Uploading files from Mythic to the agent

    • This is a special case. Downloading files from agent to Mythic happen within the post_response messages, but moving files from Mythic to agent happens with the upload action

  • Action: delegate - No other purpose than to shuttle delegate messages if the agent sending this message isn't doing any other action.
