Just another “Won’t Fix” Windows Privilege Escalation from User to Domain Admin.

RemotePotato0 is an exploit that allows you to escalate your privileges from a generic User to Domain Admin.


It abuses the DCOM activation service and trigger an NTLM authentication of the user currently logged on in the target machine. It is required you have a shell in session 0 (e.g. WinRm shell or SSH shell) and that a privileged user is logged on in the session 1 (e.g. a Domain Admin user). Once the NTLM type1 is triggered we setup a cross protocol relay server that receive the privileged type1 message and relay it to a third resource by unpacking the RPC protocol and packing the authentication over HTTP. On the receiving end you can setup a further relay node (eg. ntlmrelayx) or relay directly to a privileged resource.
