GetWmiObject Ds Computer with PowerShell
This analytic looks for the execution of
powershell.exe with command-line arguments utilized to discover remote systems. The
Get-WmiObject commandlet combined with the
DS_Computer parameter can be used to return a list of all domain computers. Red Teams and adversaries alike may leverage WMI in this case, using PowerShell, to enumerate domain groups for situational awareness and Active Directory Discovery.
