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 – Meterpreter 1

In this section, we are going to see how we can gain full control and get a Meterpreter session from the target computer. So, again, go to the Commands tab, and then Social Engineering. There are a number of ways that we can get a reverse shell. Now, it all depends on how we want to perform our social-engineering attack. We're going to use a notification bar, Fake Notification Bar (Firefox)—we're choosing Firefox because our target runs a Firefox browser:

Basically, it will display a notification bar telling the user that there is a new update or a plugin that they need to install. Once they install the plugin, they'll actually install a backdoor and we will gain full access to their computer. We'll implement it by using the same backdoor that we created and have been using throughout this book.

We have stored the backdoor...
