PrivescCheck is an amazing PowerShell Script that looks for multiple vulnerable configurations, cleartext credentials, and missing patches for exploitation that can allow the operator to elevate privileges on the workstation, it is currently only in C#, but it is actively maintained and well worked on.

In this example, I will demonstrate the SeimpersonatePrivilege with this the user is allowed to impersonate a user or account and act on behalf of the user.

Running PrivescCheck will demonstrate this permission as True

The PrintSpoofer abuses the permissions to create a pipe and has the local system try and authenticate to impersonate its token.
