PEASS - Privilege Escalation Awesome Scripts SUITE

Packaging status

Here you will find privilege escalation tools for Windows and Linux/Unix* (in some near future also for Mac).

These tools search for possible local privilege escalation paths that you could exploit and print them to you with nice colors so you can recognize the misconfigurations easily.

  • Check the Local Windows Privilege Escalation checklist from

  • WinPEAS - Windows local Privilege Escalation Awesome Script (C#.exe and .bat)

  • Check the Local Linux Privilege Escalation checklist from

  • LinPEAS - Linux local Privilege Escalation Awesome Script (.sh)
