PsExec Remote PC - Patches

Q: PsExec Remote PC - Patches

Hello Fangzhou CHEN,

Per your instructions below. Is the U/P my admin info or the users? Please advise.

We could use the PsExec tool to conduct the remote control.
1. Download the tool and copy to file to C:\Windows\System32

2. Run cmd as administrator
3. We could run the command psexec \\ <computername >
-u <username> -p <password> <command>to run command in remote computer.

Preferred Solution: PsExec Remote PC - Patches

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Ok imma give a full rundown of the situation. Currently on the network we are on because of the way it is setup wake on lan doesn't work, so SCCM has at best a 70 success rate for patching. So I am currently spending a couple days a week remoting into computers and running a batch file to manually update computers. I need a way, that isn't psexec to execute a batch file on a remote computer. If anyone has any ideas they would be greatly appreciated.

Additional Notes
- Batch file is on share drive atm.

A:Run Batch File On Remote Computer Without PsExec

So, you are using RDP and remotely logging into the computer? If that's the case, you should be able to put the batch file on a network share, and then execute it while you are in the RDP session.

As part of our usual patch Tuesday process we download the patches from Windows update and ran them on a group of test computers. After installing the patches from 10/9/2018 - 4459922, 4462923, 890830 - Sept, we can no longer access the administrative
share C$ on the remote machine. According to what I could find I needed to install 3177467 first (which wasn't available in the downloads until today 10/10/2018). I installed 3177467, which is some sort of stack update, and rebooted. Still cannot see the C$
on machines were the patch was tested. I tried to reinstall 4459922 and 4462923 after installing 3177467 but both patches indicated they were already installed. I uninstalled 4459922 but could not find 4462923 to uninstall.

Hello Team,
Please I want to ask if it is possible for ATA to detect when an attacker launch remote code execution (psexec) against a server on the network. I know ATA detects when such attack is launched against domain controllers, but what if the targeted machine
is a member server or workstation, will ATA still detect it?
Thanks.

am in the process of putting a batch file together to detect and force microsoft updates to a machine or a group of machines using PSEXEC.exe and a VBS script created by Rob Dunn and posted over at the forums at www.wsus.info.

I have listed below the steps needed to complete this task and would like it put together (if possible) in a batch file, UPDATE.VBS is the name of the script that I copy over to the machine and the PSTOOLS dir is the directory that PSEXEC resides in.

If I run these commands one at a time everything runs well, I would just like to know if it is possible to make this a "one step process"?
Ok here are all the cmds I need in order to run the script

1. net use \\TARGETMACHINE\C$ /user:"DOMAIN\DOMAIN USER"

2. copy update.vbs \\TARGETMACHINE\C$\update.vbs

3. exit back into PSTOOLS directory

3. psexec.exe \\TARGETMACHINE -u "DOMAIN\DOMAIN USER" -p PASSWORD -e -i cmd.exe /c cscript.exe //B C:\UPDATE.vbs
I have tested this on multiple machines and everything is running well. Any suggestions on how to set this up in one batch file? Of course I will eventually setup the PSTOOLS dir on a network drive instead of my local machine.

Hi,
I have a question regarding psexec or an alternative perhaps? Basically, I have a batch file I made, that I want to allow a friend from a remote machine to exec. However, I want him ONLY to be able to exec this file, and not mess around anywhere else on the machine. Psexec gives too much privilege and he could open other things, etc. I did come across the program RemoteExec, but after the 15 day trial that won't be of much value to me(not paying 400$ for this singular occurrence). Any ideas or help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Thanks

Why do you want to give remote access to this file? This kind of sounds like a classroom project you are trying to get help with.

Hello all, I have a question about setting up Remote Desktop on PCs in our company. For most of the PCs on our network Remote Desktop is disabled by decree of the management. When I do need access to a machine I'll use psexec to enable the service then I'll disable it when I'm done. Some of the PCs are accessed by normal (non-admin) users on the network using Remote Desktop - we're looking for a way to remotely edit the list of users that can access the PCs that way - it'll be one specific user allowed per machine so a group policy doesn't seem to be the right way to go... Basically I'm looking for a way to remotely edit a machine's local secpol, specifically the "Allow logon through terminal services" setting.
I found this MS article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb457125.aspx that mentions the SeNetworkLogonRight but I don't see that in the registry... I must be missing something stupid here - there has to be an easy way to do what I'm trying to do... Does anyone know what that easy way is?
This is the command I use to enable remote desktop - it seems like something similar could be used to edit the userlist? Argh!
psexec \\machine reg add "hklm\system\currentcontrolset\control\terminal server" /f /v fDenyTSConnections /t REG_DWORD /d 0

-Oh, it's an Active Directory Domain, all the PCs are WinXP - Thanks!

Has anyone experienced this or similar recently? We've seen multiple unrelated clients get hit with something that resembles a worm. It appears to use mimikatz to steal passwords for the currently logged on user (Active Directory) and then reaches out to other PCs on the network and uses psexec to run something. I assume it's trying to steal the next computer's username/password and so on. Processes can be seen in Task Manager running under other user accounts that are NOT logged into the PC. The users (which have never otherwise logged into the PC) then have profiles in C:\users. This process leaves the PSEXECSVC Windows service (visible in services.msc) and saves mimikatz.exe and other random KB_______.exe and ms_______.exe files in C:\ProgramData and C:\users\username\appdata\roaming and \appdata\local\temp. It seems to disable the Windows Firewall and Windows Update services, and it breaks Show Hidden Files so it can't be turned on or off.
 
Users have complained of audio/music playing in the background, and we've found .mp3 files in c:\users\username\appdata\roaming. It's hard to recover from this because cleaning the PCs one by one is great until an infected one is turned back on with network connectivity and hits all the cleaned/rebuilt ones again.
 
The thing that's most worrying to me is that I can't find much about this online. This appears to be the closest thing: http://blog.cylance.com/operation-cleaver-net-crawler

A:Some type of worm using psexec and mimikatz?

First thing first, it would have to eb running at domain adminlevel to execute through psexec, so change the administrators password pronto.
Also setup a group policy to disallow psexec.exce from running on C:\*
Thirdly make sure no user account has admin rights, ecspecially global admin rights or local admin rights.
If its conencting to each amchine IPC$ then im assuming it has the Domain\Administrator account token/password.

Hi there,
As described in the following link on how to run a disk defragment using Disk Defragmenter via PsExec http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/how-to-run-disk-defragmenter-on-a-remote-computer/,
would you say that all parameters mentioned by the author in the blog are applicable? If not, please could you specify which parameters aren't needed in order for me achieve this task efficiently, I've been trying to understand all the parameters for PsExec
and from what I can understand I don't think parameters -s and -f are applicable as mentioned in
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx. Reason why I say this is that when you when specify parameter -s (using system account) in the command and log on as a
user of that remote computer in which I've been using Remote Desktop to achieve this as well as Command Prompt, the prompt comes up with "Disk Defragmenter exited with error code 0" straightaway when logging on and logging off as that user on the
remote computer, the same also applies when logging off as that user on the remote computer when running the command when being logged on as that user whereas if you don't specify parameter -s the message is delayed for longer which is what I would expect,

Now I am very much confuse here exactly what happen. and what is the issue.
Please help. It urgent.

Hi,

 

When opening the Command Prompt, please right click it and run as Administrator. Meanwhile, make sure the user has administrator privileges on target PC. If the issue
persists, try to disable UAC on both sides.

 

As far as I know the Security Level on Windows 7 is higher than the level on Windows XP.  Therefore, 'psexec' works to all machines.

These folders are redirected to a shared folder on a server and when we try to see the folders by using UNC path(\\computername\c$\users\username) on the user's machine they dont appear under user profile. Even though "Documents" are redirected,
we are able to take backup of the "Documents" folder.
However, when scanstate is run locally on the system, all folders are backedup to usmt.mig file. We are using "miguser.xml" and "Config.xml" for scanstate, since we need backup of "Documents","Desktop" and "Favorites"
only. After searching over internet, we doubt that, this behavior has got something to do with "Shell Folders" and "User Shell Folders" in the registry under "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\explorer\shell folders",
where paths to all user profile related folders information is stored. We dont find "Documents" folder there, may be thats the reason why we are able to take backup of only "My Documents" and not the rest of the folders (Favorites,Desktop).

None of these features or applications work, and they're all supposed to function differently from one another (e.g. WMC doesn't use the Apple Bonjour service, so it isn't a program-specific problem). I just want to control my media system with my desktop
Is there some obscure service or file or setting that I'm missing that could prevent any remote applications?

A:Remote features not working -remote desktop, WMC, iTunes remote, etc.

Let's focus on "remote desktop". Can someone remotely access it from the internet?
If not: Can someone remotely access it from same LAN?

Hi

I know there are other products out there, like vnc, ultravnc, teamviewer etc etc, but really nothing beats the sheer speed of remote desktop, it's like sitting in front of the actual computer. I also know about Remote Assistance built into Windows 7.

I would like to use remote desktop to do the following if possible.

1. I would like to know if there is a way, to not lock the host machine that you are connected to?, so the user can see what you are doing?.

2. Is there a way that Remote desktop can be used without logging off the logged in account?, or just use the logged in account?

I would like to use Remote Desktop for a remote helpdesk solution if possible. If anyone knows how to do this things I am asking it would be the people on this board.

A:Using Remote Desktop instead of Remote Assistance for remote helpdesk?

Might be possible to do it. I think you need some sort of security.

Hello,

I have a Windows 7 network set up and whenever I connect remotely to another computer and lock their input such as their keyboard and mouse, the remote user still has the ability to press ctrl alt del, which then allows them to use their keyboard and mouse. My question is, is it possible to disable the ctrl alt del functionality in Windows 7 so that that Blue security screen does not appear? I have tried lots of remote desktop controlling software which has the option to lock the remote computer input, but they still can press ctrl alt del and unlock their keyboard and mouse. How do I stop this? Thanks!

Best regards,

Jerry

Hello - I know there have been a number of posts on this subject but I have been unable to find a solution. I have 2 Win7 machines, both running SP1.

My HP Pavilion is running 64-bit and my Dell Latiude E6400 is running 32-bit. I can successfully RDP from my Dell and even my Apple iPad (via an RDP client) into my HP Pavilion. However, the problem is that when I try to RDP from my Pavilion into my Dell I get connected but all I see is a BLACK from the Dell machine. The only thing i can see is the Status bar at teh top telling me that i am connected. A few moments later I get a popup message telling me that the machines have failed to communicate.

I have confirmed that RDP settings are identical on the Pavilion and Dell. I have even downgraded the Dell NVIDIA graphics driver to an older version based on the recommended version on the Dell support web site.

At this point I am at a complete loss on what to try next. I find it very strange.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Thank you.

Temp disable your anti-virus and firewall to determin if this is blocking the ports.

Also, can you copnfirm that you have a password on the PC's user account? Windows wont let you RDP to a PC that isnt password protected.

We're using a Server 2008 r2 Terminal server environment.
I have one particular user (running windows 7 64bit) who's having an issue with a HP laserjet 400 M401 printer. She connects with her local printer set to follow her to the remote session but randomly through her session, programs like word or adobe reader
will pull up another random printer in our network instead of her local one.
For instance, today she pulled up a .pdf and it defaulted to one printer across the complex, then later within the same session she pulled up a Wordperfect document and it defaulted to a copier on the other side of the office.
She's the only person having this particular issue. So far my IT manager rebuilt her local profile (albeit sometime back) and I reinstalled drivers but I'm a bit stumped on which direction to take with this one.
I've ideated on it being an issue with USB cables, Printer memory, account data related, or maybe bandwidth?
Any help is appreciated.

The title says it all! Basically I have a comp running XP pro and I want to be able to work locally on one user account, with some kind of remote access server running on another XP user account so that the remote account and the local account can be used simultaniously. I know that this cannot be done with XP Pro remote desktop and could be by Windows Server 2003 remote desktop, but i need an alternate solution to make this happen.

Thanks!

No, not just anyone. It's a very specialised skill. Hundreds of hours of programing skills and very many pots of coffee go into learning how to explain and/or operate a software patch.

Or, you could just double-click on a self-extracting Install-Shield or Windows Installer package and let it do all the work for you.

I have two systems, "desktop" and "laptop", peer-to-peer networked on my home LAN both running Vista Ultimate SP1. I routinely use Remote Desktop from desktop to laptop. I am accustomed to simply closing the RDP window on desktop (and perhaps reopening it one or more times) and then if I want to use laptop directly, logging back into it from the Windows login window.

Recently (I apologize, but I can't be more specific) I find that (1) I cannot log back into a session after I have closed the RDP window on desktop, (2) I cannot log back into laptop from its logon window. I also find logging out of the RDP session rather than merely closing the window makes no difference. In either case, when I look at the logon window on laptop I see the message saying a remote user is logged in, and if I try to log in anyway, it hangs indefinitely at the "Welcome" window and must be restarted.

I cannot identify any software change to this system that might be responsible. In fact with the exception of Windows Updates I don't think there have been any. The system is a Dell Latitude D830 and all its drivers are the most current.

I asked a question in another thread wanting to know if there were any good free alternatives to programs PCAnywhere or GoToMyPC. Boy did I ever get more than I expected in TeamViewer that EAFiedler suggested.

Now I have a technical question about how TeamViewer works. It connects to remote systems across the internet not by an IP number that I enter but rather by an arbitrary nine-digit number assigned to the system when the program is set up. It connects so quickly that I know it cannot be scanning every IP address on the 'net looking for a TeamViewer connection at every one of them. So, I have deduced that there must be a server out there somewhere that stores TeamViewer information.

Does anyone know enough about this to confirm this and/or explain it to me somewhat?

Next question: What about security? Are there any security issues I should be concerned about, other than the obvious, of course?

I have a home network of 4 Win 7 computers which I leave running when I'm away from home to provide data to my website, among other things. In the past, I've been using Remote Desktop to access my home computers. It works very well, but it's always a challenge getting everything set up to work right before I go. I was wondering if others who have used Remote Desktop as well as other means of remote access would care to share their experience and express a preference, if any.

Thanks.

Hiya

The Remote Installation Service enables a TFTP service on the server which by default could allow an anonymous user to potentially overwrite existing operating system files or upload a specially crafted file. This could allow an attacker to compromise operating system installs offered by the RIS server.

Affected Software:

Microsoft Windows 2000 Service Pack 4
