Commando VM: Windows-based platform for Penetration testing

If you've ever spent time modifying your Windows to support the tools and capabilities offered by a Linux platform like Kali Linux, you have good news, why FireEye just launched Commando VM.

Commando VM

What is Commando VM?

We are talking about one Windows-based platform that many like Kali Linux. Commando VM is not a ready operating system distribution like Kali because it converts your existing Windows software into a machine for penetration testing. It offers features that support offensive and defensive mechanisms and over 140 tools such as Wireshark, Nmap, Burp-Suite etc.

However, it is not the first platform of its kind since 2015, PenTestBox, a similar open source tool, offers similar capabilities on Windows computers.

Creator of Commando VM, claimed to reddit that his strengths are summarized in the following:

  • Support of native windows protocols (SMP, Powershell, Sysinternal, etc.)
  • Grouped tools
  • Windows based C2 frameworks such as Covenant and PoshC2

How is it installed?

FireEye, suggests installing Commando VM to take place at virtual machine for convenience and the ability to return the system to a previous "healthy" state.

Also recommended as minimum conditions for safe operation and installation of 2 GB memory and 60 GB disk space while the installation is supported for Windows 7 Service Pack 1 or Windows 10 publications.

Then you can download the Commando VM from the corresponding one Github repository, unpack it, and run the Powershell script included to complete the installation.
