Understand the Scenario

You are a network and security administrator. As part of your penetration testing program, you need to learn about common Windows® flaws that attackers may exploit. First, you will remotely attack Windows Server® Message Block (SMB) vulnerabilities to extract information from other Windows systems on the network. Next, you will attack a Windows network from within to access other users’ password hashes. Finally, you will execute commands remotely between Windows systems.

Understand Your Environment

You will be using a Windows Server 2019 virtual machine named WS2019-WS1-SRV, and a Windows Server 2012 virtual machine named Win2012R2, and a Kali Linux™ virtual machine named Kali Linux 2021.
