WMIOps is a powershell script that uses WMI to perform a variety of actions on hosts, local or remote, within a Windows environment. It's designed primarily for use on penetration tests or red team engagements.

This is my first PowerShell script, so I am sure there's things that could have been done better. Please submit a request for anything that could be made more efficient and I'd be happy to look at it, and learn from it :).
