PsExec via Current User Token

Description

This module uploads an executable file to the victim system, creates a share containing that executable, creates a remote service on each target system using a UNC path to that file, and finally starts the service(s). The result is similar to psexec but with the added benefit of using the session's current authentication token instead of having to know a password or hash.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use exploit/windows/local/current_user_psexec
msf exploit(current_user_psexec) > show targets
    ...targets...
msf exploit(current_user_psexec) > set TARGET < target-id >
msf exploit(current_user_psexec) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf exploit(current_user_psexec) > exploit

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
