exe2powershell - Convert EXE to BAT Files


This will convert any binary file (*.exe) to a BAT file, the resulting BAT file contains only echo commands followed by a PowerShell command to re-create the original binary file.

This kind of tool can be useful during a pen-test when you want to trigger a shell without any upload feature. With echo and PowerShell the auditor is able to upload any binary file to the target system.

This version is modernized from exe2bat to work with current Windows versions as exe2bat had some limitations:

  • Needs debug.exe available on the target computer (16-bit application which was removed in Windows 7 x64 but available in Windows 7 x86)
  • Limits input exe size to 64kB

exe2powershell replaces the need of debug.exe by using a PowerShell command line which is available on all Windows since Windows 7 / 2008 and there is no more limitation in input exe size.
