Background

For background information, please refer to the following blog post: WS-Management COM: Another Approach for WinRM Lateral Movement

Notes

  • SharpWSManWinRM.cs and CppWsManWinRM.cpp compile in Visual Studio 2019. Refer to the code comments for required imports/references/etc.
  • All examples leverage the WMI Win32_Process class and WMI Create method for invocation.

Usage

SharpWSManWinRM.cs

 Usage: SharpWSManWinRM.exe <hostname> <command>
