Summary


In this chapter, we have tried to give some practical demonstration by the usage of a few tools in the privilege escalation section (including eavesdropping), tools such as ettercap, sslstrip, arp for the MITM attack, John the Ripper for offline password cracking, Hydra for online/remote password cracking, and Nmap for information gathering.

Of course, there are still many tools in this section that can be used for different purposes and the escalation of the privileges. In the next chapter, once we have access and also know how to escalate the privileges, we will learn how to maintain the access.
