CrackMapExec – Swiss army knife for pentesting Windows/Active Directory

CrackMapExec is your one-stop-shop for pentesting Windows/Active Directory environments!

From enumerating logged on users and spidering SMB shares to executing psexec style attacks, auto-injecting Mimikatz/Shellcode/DLL’s into memory using Powershell, dumping the NTDS.dit and more!

The biggest improvements over the above tools are:

  • Pure Python script, no external tools required
  • Fully concurrent threading
  • Uses ONLY native WinAPI calls for discovering sessions, users, dumping SAM hashes etc…
  • Opsec safe (no binaries are uploaded to dump clear-text credentials, inject shellcode etc…)

Additionally, a database is used to store used/dumped credentals. It also automatically correlates Admin credentials to hosts and vice-versa allowing you to easily keep track of credential sets and gain additional situational awareness in large environments.
