First, you’ll demonstrate executing commands on remote hosts. Next, you’ll apply these skills to gather information from Windows servers. Finally, you’ll simulate lateral movement by opening remote PowerShell sessions on Windows devices.
When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge to execute these techniques T1047: Windows Management Instrumentation and T1077: Windows Admin Shares using WMIOps.
Course Overview Welcome to Pluralsight and this Red Team Tools course featuring WMIOps, the open‑source lateral movement tool developed and maintained by Chris Truncer. WMIOps is a tool that penetration testers and ethical hackers can use to execute commands, gather information, and run PowerShell scripts on remote Windows machines. WMIOps is used for lateral movement within a network using credentials you already obtained on a host you already exploited. WMIOps is a PowerShell script containing a variety of functions that leverage Windows Management Instrumentation, or WMI, to remotely manage Windows machines. The functions in WMIOps enable you to execute commands, run scripts, download files, and schedule tasks remotely.
