Living off the land technique: Using PowerShell to scan ports

I just read up on an interesting technique to perform scan ports from a Windows machine using PowerShell.

$target = “”
22,80,135,139,443,445,3389,5900 | % {echo ((New-Object net.sockets.tcpclient).connect(“$target”,$_)) “$target has port $_ open”} 2>out-null | Out-File OpenPorts.txt

This will scan ports 22, 80, 135, 139, 443, 445, 3389 and 5900 on the host IP of  and will write the results to the text file OpenPorts.txt.

Happy New Years 2019!
