PowerShell has gained popularity recently as a method for both installing malware and embedding malicious functionality within the script.
The typical infection path to the target is email – an attachment in a phishing email for example. The PowerShell malware can be embedded in an attached Word document for example. When the user opens the Word Document attachment, a macro (actually a Visual Basic script) will run which loads and runs a PowerShell script. Macros will not normally run by default so the user must feel confident enough in the authenticity of the document to override the Windows warning and run the macro.
