How PowerShell Empire Hacking Tools Works

Empire has a few components which you can chain together, similar to something like Metasploits.

It has:

Listeners – Think of this like a metasploit handler, this will catch your session.
Stagers – This is your payload, this is what you will execute on your target system.
Agents – This is how you interact with the target system, you can gather stats & info or run shell commands.

It also had fairly robust logging built in.
