Metasploit getwlanprofiles is a Meterpreter script which when kept running against Windows 7 or Vista boxes will extract and download all the wireless profiles that are setup with the Windows customer, i.e. not with outsider customer applications.
It does this by using the following command to dump all the profiles to the current %TEMP% directory
netsh wlan export profile folder=%TEMP%
At that point for each line of the output finding the filename of the profile and downloading it. To clean up the record is then erased from the index.

The profiles are stored in the .msf3/logs/scripts/wlan_profiles/ directory.
To re-use the profiles they can be imported into another Windows box by using the following command
netsh wlan add profile filename="the_filename.xml"
Something that was found while testing this is whether you have an outer wifi card and setup the profiles at that point expel the card the profiles are never again accessible to the netsh script. When the card is reinserted the profiles return. There will in any case be an approach to get to them however Metasploit getwlanprofiles doesn’t do it.
Metasploit getwlanprofiles Usage
Simply uncompress the script and move it to the meterpreter/scripts directory. Also probably best remove the version number from the filename while doing so.
