Overview of this book

This book starts with the basics of ethical hacking, how to practice hacking safely and legally, and how to install and interact with Kali Linux and the Linux terminal. You will explore network hacking, where you will see how to test the security of wired and wireless networks. You’ll also learn how to crack the password for any Wi-Fi network (whether it uses WEP, WPA, or WPA2) and spy on the connected devices. Moving on, you will discover how to gain access to remote computer systems using client-side and server-side attacks. You will also get the hang of post-exploitation techniques, including remotely controlling and interacting with the systems that you compromised. Towards the end of the book, you will be able to pick up web application hacking techniques. You'll see how to discover, exploit, and prevent a number of website vulnerabilities, such as XSS and SQL injections. The attacks covered are practical techniques that work against real systems and are purely for educational purposes. At the end of each section, you will learn how to detect, prevent, and secure systems from these attacks.

Now that Veil is installed, we can take a look at its commands. The commands are straightforward, with exit allowing us to exit the program, and info providing us with information about a specific tool.list will list the available tools, update will update Veil, and finally, use enables the use of any tool, as shown in the following screenshot:

The list command displays Veil's main commands, which are as follows:

  1. Evasion: This generates undetectable backdoors
  2. Ordnance: This generates the payloads used by Evasion; this is more of a secondary tool

A payload is a part of the code, or of the backdoor, that does what we want it to. In this case, it gives us a reverse connection and downloads and executes something on a target computer.

When Veil-Evasion has loaded, you should see something similar to the following screenshot:

As you can see, Veil gives us...
