Course Overview
Welcome to Pluralsight and this Red Team Tools course featuring PsExec, the remote administration tool developed and maintained by Mark Russinovich. PsExec is a tool that penetration testers, ethical hackers, and system administrators can use to execute remote processes on Windows machines. PsExec is used for lateral movement within a network, using credentials you already obtained on an already exploited workstation. PsExec is part of the PsTools suite that allows administrators to remotely access Windows machines and gather information or run commands. As the exact part of the name implies, PsExec is used to execute commands or run programs and processes on those remote machines. Come join me as we use PsExec for lateral movement from an exploited host and run commands against a remote Windows machine.
