Computer Cracked

Hopefully you followed along with yesterday's tutorial to setup the Metasploit database on your Kali Linux machine. If not, do it now, because this tutorial is going to expand on that and show you how to connect to a vulnerable machine.

We're going to use a very, very well known yet still wildly available exploit (MS08-67) to connect to our target machine on the network through the Metasploit framework. This video alone should make you want to keep YOUR system up to date with the latest patches and security updates.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER: I am going to be connecting to a system in which I own. For legal purposes, only use this tutorial against your own computer(s) or ones you have explicit permission to exploit. I am not ... Continue Reading

I'm not big into history lessons, but this one is important. The Metasploit Framework is a vulnerability management solution created by HD Moore and released in October 2003 with a total of 11 exploits. Today this software offers more than 1,400 exploits at the time of this writing.

Cyberstalking

If you've ever received a restraining order — or as you call them, "love notes" — you may want to skip this tutorial. The last tutorial shows how to use The Harvester to capture emails throughout the internet for domains that you specify.

This takes it a notch further, showing how you can take those email addresses and extrapolate that into a massive amount of information about your target, including social networking profiles, phone numbers, registered domains, other linked email ... Continue Reading

Site Hacked

Friday the 13th. This date only seems very fitting for what I'm about to show you. Back in 2009, I released my book "From the Bottom of the Bottle" on a Friday the 13th in November. True to fashion, I feel it necessary to release more Hell on that day so I made this tutorial last night to show you how to bring down and/or deface a website using a custom trojan and 5 minutes of your time.

If you've ever wondered, "Ha! How did Anonymous [or insert any hacking group] deface [insert ... Continue Reading

We've looked at various ways to crack passwords through decryption and/or brute force. But one thing I haven't touched on yet — and probably the easiest way to get a password — is to simply ask the victim for their password.

Through a process known as social engineering, defined as "psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information", we can gather information about a person and then, using that information, trick them into divulging ... Continue Reading
