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.

BeEF – basic commands

Now that we have our browser or target hooked, we can go to the Commands tab and start executing commands on the target:

We can use the Search option to look for a certain command, or we can use the categories and look for commands suitable for what we want to perform on the target computer. Some of the commands are information-gathering commands, some of them are social engineering, some of them will even give us full control over the target computer. There are a lot of commands, so we won't be able to go over all of them, but we will be looking at some of the most important commands so we know how to experiment and run them.

If we click on the Browser (53) option, we will see commands related to attacks that we can do inside the browser:

We can see attacks that will allow us to get a screenshot, we can try to turn on the webcam and see whether...
