SharpStrike is a post-exploitation tool written in C# that uses either CIM or WMI to query remote systems. It can use provided credentials or the current user’s session.
Note: Some commands will use PowerShell in combination with WMI, denoted with ** in the
SharpStrike allows you to gather data about a remote system, execute commands, exfil data, and more. The tool allows connections using Windows Management Instrumentation, WMI, or Common Interface Model, CIM ; well more accurately Windows Management Infrastructure, MI. CIMplant requires local administrator permissions on the target system.
It’s probably easiest to use the built version under Releases, just note that it is compiled in Debug mode. If you want to build the solution yourself, follow the steps below.
- Load SharpStrike.sln into Visual Studio
- Go to Build at the top and then Build Solution if no modifications are wanted
The Build will produce two versions of SharpStrike: GUI (WinForms) & Console application. Each version implements the same features.
Console Version: SharpStrike.exe --help SharpStrike.exe --show-commands SharpStrike.exe --show-examples SharpStrike.exe -c ls_domain_admins SharpStrike.exe -c ls_domain_users_list SharpStrike.exe -c cat -f "c:\users\user\desktop\file.txt" -s [remote IP address] SharpStrike.exe -c cat -f "c:\users\user\desktop\file.txt" -s [remote IP address] -u [username] -d [domain] -p [password] -c SharpStrike.exe -c command_exec -e "quser" -s [remote IP address] -u [username] -d [domain] -p [password] GUI version: show-commands show-examples ls_domain_admins ls_domain_users_list cat -f "c:\users\user\desktop\file.txt" -s [remote IP address] cat -f "c:\users\user\desktop\file.txt" -s [remote IP address] -u [username] -d [domain] -p [password] command_exec -e "quser" [remote IP address] -u [username] -d [domain] -p [password]
cat - Reads the contents of a file copy - Copies a file from one location to another download** - Download a file from the targeted machine ls - File/Directory listing of a specific directory search - Search for a file on a user upload** - Upload a file to the targeted machine
command_exec** - Run a command line command and receive the output. Run with nops flag to disable PowerShell disable_wdigest - Sets the registry value for UseLogonCredential to zero enable_wdigest - Adds registry value UseLogonCredential disable_winrm** - Disables WinRM on the targeted system enable_winrm** - Enables WinRM on the targeted system reg_mod - Modify the registry on the targeted machine reg_create - Create the registry value on the targeted machine reg_delete - Delete the registry on the targeted machine remote_posh** - Run a PowerShell script on a remote machine and receive the output sched_job - Not implimented due to the Win32_ScheduledJobs accessing an outdated API service_mod - Create, delete, or modify system services ls_domain_users*** - List domain users ls_domain_users_list*** - List domain users sAMAccountName ls_domain_users_email*** - List domain users email address ls_domain_groups*** - List domain user groups ls_domain_admins*** - List domain admin users ls_user_groups*** - List domain user with their associated groups
process_kill - Kill a process via name or process id on the targeted machine process_start - Start a process on the targeted machine ps - Process listing

logon_events - Identify users that have logged onto a system * All PowerShell can be disabled by using the --nops flag, although some commands will not execute (upload/download, enable/disable WinRM) ** Denotes PowerShell usage (either using a PowerShell Runspace or through Win32_Process::Create method) *** Denotes LDAP usage - "root\directory\ldap" namespace
SharpStrike is composed of three main projects
- ServiceLayer — Provides core functionality and consumed by the UI layer
- Models — Contains types, shared across all projects
- User Interface — GUI/Console
This is where the initial CIM/WMI connections are made and passed to the rest of the application
