Downloads and executes a program in one operation

WebJob downloads a program over HTTP/HTTPS and executes it in one unified operation. The output, if any, may be directed to stdout/stderr or a Web resource. WebJob may be useful in incident response and intrusion analysis as it provides a mechanism to run known good diagnostic programs on a potentially compromised system. It can also support various host-based monitoring solutions. The intended audience includes Incident Response (IR) Handlers and System Administrators.
