Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Scripting with PowerShell, part of Penetration Testing Essential Training.
- [Instructor] Windows PowerShell comes built into…all current Windows systems; and it's to Windows…what the Bash shell is to Linux,…a powerful command line tool for automating systems…and network administration.…It's also a useful tool for the pen tester…to be able to use when carrying out testing.…PowerShell combines the features of a scripting language…with command line utilities and commandlets,…as well as the ability to interface…to the Windows Management Instrumentation, or WMI, system.…Commandlets are a new concept with PowerShell.…
They use a standard naming convention…that follows a verb-noun pattern, such as get help,…get event log, get process, and set service.…The get verb displays information about the noun,…and the set verb modifies or sets…some (mumbles) of that information.…Get and set are just two examples.…There are around a hundred verbs that can be used.…I'm in the PowerShell console,…and I can list the available verbs…by entering the command Get-Verb.…
We can see in this list get and set and many other verbs.…
