Locate compromised user on Network

The following script looks for a user on a network and disables the NIC on the device where the user is logged into.

This script can be used when a user is compromised and actively infecting the network.

# Version: 1.0.0
# Author: bluesoul <https://bluesoul.me>
# Date: 2016-04-06
# Applies to: Domain Environments
#
# Description: This script searches for a specific, logged on user on all or 
# specific Computers by checking the process "explorer.exe" and its owner. It 
# then enumerates the list and lets you choose a PC to disable the NIC on. Useful
# as a last-resort script to stop a ransomware infection in-progress.
