Forum Thread: 'Getsystem' Without Meterpreter?

So I started using Meterpreter and found out about the getsystem command which uses '15 build in ways to gain sysadmin privilegies'

So I thought if it was possibly to use this command without meterpreter so for example you have an USB-Stick with an executable which runs this these 15 ways without to use meterpreter. (You'd have to gain physical acces to your victim to use this)

But is this possible?

In short, the answer is "no". Having said that, there are some possibilities, none of them easy.

getsystem is a script for the Meterpreter. You could install the Meterpreter physically onto the system and use it. Second, you could re-write the script to run from a command prompt (cmd.exe).


Can you tell me where the getsystem script is located? I can't find it...


First, I want to correct myself. getsystem is a command in the meterpreter script. The script for meterpreter can be found at:


Hope this helps.
