As requested, this is the first post of many I’m doing on “hacking” and “pentesting.” Many admins aren’t comfortable with Linux, or just want to use convenient Windows-based tools, so that’s what we’re going to do. We’ll talk about a tool called Nishang, which you can use to do many different pentesting and security auditing techniques, using the Windows PowerShell 3.0.
To get started, you will need to download Nishang. You can click here to go directly to the GibHub page or click the link below to download the latest version directly. First, here’s a video the creator of Nishang gave at Defcon 21.
Download & Install
Once you’ve downloaded the zip file, extract it, rename the folder to nishang.ps and put it in the root of your c: drive.
Open the Windows PowerShell command prompt as Administrator. On Windows 10, click the start button and type “powershell” then right click and select “Run as Administrator.”
