Content From Vic .Net Presentation

Last week I had the wonderful pleasure of presenting to the Victorian .Net User Group. I want to thank Mahesh, the other organizers and SportsBet for the wonderful facilities.

I have been extremely lucky to present to a wide range of audiences on the security challenges that PowerShell brings to our organisations. From security groups to architecture to infrastructure and now development focused groups.

As promised, here is the content, code and links to more information.

You can download the PowerPoint slides here, or find them on SlideShare here.

If you want to take a look at the "malware" script that I created, you can find that up GitHub here. The repository includes two files, an example of the Excel spreadsheet which contains a macro that would infect a system, and then the SystemInformation.ps1, which is the actual "malware" that is the basis for all of my demonstrations.

I mentioned Matt Graeber's write up on PowerWorm, and this can be found here at his site, Matt has rewritten the code to be more safe, as well as provide some tools to detect and remove PowerWorm infections and this can be found on his GitHub.

Another important set of resources are the 5 part series from the Microsoft's Hey Scripting Guy.

I recommend reading the final two parts, I have made use of the code from these within SystemInformation.ps1.
