|Summary||0003381: Wmiexec (Part of impacket collection)|
Licence: Apache (https://github.com/CoreSecurity/impacket/blob/impacket_0_9_13/LICENSE)
## What is Impacket?
Impacket is a collection of Python classes for working with network protocols. Impacket is focused on providing low-level programmatic access to the packets and for some protocols (for instance NMB, SMB1-3 and MS-DCERPC) the protocol implementation itself. Packets can be constructed from scratch, as well as parsed from raw data, and the object oriented API makes it simple to work with deep hierarchies of protocols. The library provides a set of tools as examples of what can be done within the context of this library.
A description of some of the tools can be found at: http://corelabs.coresecurity.com/index.php?module=Wiki&action=view&type=tool&name=Impacket

## What is wmiexec?
A similar approach to smbexec but executing commands through WMI.
Main advantage here is it runs under the user (has to be Admin) account, not SYSTEM, plus, it doesn't generate noisy messages in the event log that smbexec.py does when creating a service.
Drawback is it needs DCOM, hence, I have to be able to access DCOM ports at the target machine.
||8 hours later, v0.9.15 got released....|
||What's the relation between Impacket and wmiexec? Also how does it compare to winexe?|
||wmiexec is a specific tool within the impacket package, from the “Examples” directory ~ https://github.com/CoreSecurity/impacket/blob/master/examples/wmiexec.py|
Can we update the python-impacket package to run from upstream (https://github.com/CoreSecurity/impacket) rather than Debian testing?
Upstream updates frequently and has functionality benefits over the currently packaged version.
In addition, some of the example tools in the suite are very useful for pentesting, would be nice to have tools such as “wmiexec.py” available through the $PATH"
||There are many examples in impacket. I will pollute a little /usr/bin if I put all the examples in this directory. Do you have a list of which one are important? or you prefer to have all of them in the path?|
I uploaded a new version 0.9.15-0kali2 with helper scripts for the 5 examples mentioned:
We added "impacket-" to avoid conflict with other binaries from other packages.
