A piece of my work around PowerShell and IIS (or usefull things I've found on the web). Mostly some reminders for myself!

countdownSometimes we need want to play secret agents, sometimes we just want to remove our trail. Remote execution is one thing and then, sometimes, for non-legitimate purpose we need a local script to be executed and not to stay there then. Here’s a script template that will self destruct after its execution.

 

param([string]$countDown=5)
function CountDown($waitSeconds)
{
$startTime=Get-Date
$endTime=$startTime.addSeconds($waitSeconds)
$timeSpan=New-Timespan $startTime $endTime
While ($timeSpan -gt 0)
{
$timeSpan=New-Timespan $(Get-Date) $endTime
Write-Host "`r".padright(40," ") -NoNewline
Write-Host $([string]::Format("`rTime Remaining: {0:d2}:{1:d2}:{2:d2}", $timeSpan.hours, $timeSpan.minutes, $timeSpan.seconds)) -NoNewline -ForegroundColor DarkYellow
Start-Sleep 1
}
}

<#
INSERT HERE THE SCRIPT ACTIONS
#>

Write-Host "This script will self destruct in $countDown seconds...`r`n" -ForegroundColor DarkRed
Countdown $countDown
Remove-Item $PSCommandPath
Write-Host "`r`n`r`nThis script has self destructed. Bye`r`n" -ForegroundColor DarkRed
