Penetration Testing Puns: Harnessing PowerShell’s Power

Why use PowerShell? It’s not just a tool; it’s a digital Swiss Army knife!

Features: PowerShell offers an intuitive scripting environment with user-friendly cmdlets and commands.

Cmdlets and Command:

Forget complicated commands. PowerShell, we’ve got “cmdlets” – commands that are as easy to remember as your favorite TV Show.

Say hello to wget!

PowerShell’s wget alias for the Invoke-WebRequest cmdlet facilitates seamless file transfer between systems, allowing testers to retrieve and trasfer data during penetration tests.
