Attacking the Domain

  • Mike O’Leary


An attacker that has gained a foothold on a network using the techniques of  Chapter 2 can use Metasploit to expand their influence. Metasploit comes with reconnaissance modules that allow the attacker to determine their user privileges, the domain controller(s), and the account names for the domain administrators. Moreover, Metasploit also has a number of privilege escalation modules that allow the attacker to gain SYSTEM privileges on the host.
