Today I've got another fun tale of internal pentest pwnage that comes out of a few recent assessments I did. These tests were really fun because the clients had good defensive measures in place, such as:

  • Having separate accounts for day-to-day operations and administrative/privileged tasks
  • Local Administrator account largely disabled across the enterprise
  • Lean membership in privileged groups (Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, Schema Admins, etc.)
  • Hard-to-crack passwords!
Will I succeed in getting a solid foothold on this network and (hopefully) escalate to Domain Admin? Check out today's episode to find out!
