Where are they?

All installed docker containers are located at Mythic/InstalledServices/each with their own folder. The currently running ones can be checked with the sudo ./mythic-cli status . Check A note about containers for more information about them.

Why use containers?

Containers allow Mythic to have each Payload Type establish its own operating environment for payload creation without causing conflicting or unnecessary requirements on the host system.

When do containers come into play?

Payload Type containers only come into play for a few special scenarios:

  • Payload Creation

  • Tasking

  • Processing Responses

For more information on editing or creating new containers for payload types, see Payload Type Development.
