PeekABoo

PeekABoo tool can be used during internal penetration testing when a user needs to enable Remote Desktop on the targeted machine. It uses PowerShell remoting to perform this task.

The tool only works if WinRM is enabled. Since Windows Server 2012 WinRM is enabled by default on all Windows server operating systems, but not on client operating systems.

Note: Remote desktop is disabled by default on all Windows operating systems. User would require local administrator password or administrator privileges on the server to enable RDP on a targeted machine.

Any suggestions or ideas for this tool are welcome - just tweet me on @ManiarViral
