Windows Gather Screen Spy

Created

Description

This module will incrementally take desktop screenshots from the host. This allows for screen spying which can be useful to determine if there is an active user on a machine, or to record the screen for later data extraction. Note: As of March, 2014, the VIEW_CMD option has been removed in favor of the Boolean VIEW_SCREENSHOTS option, which will control if (but not how) the collected screenshots will be viewed from the Metasploit interface.

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.
