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 – hook using a MITMf

Another method to hook targets to BeEF is to inject the JavaScript that BeEF gives us using MITMf. So, if the target and attacker are in the same network, and if we can become the man-in-the-middle (or if we manage to the become the man-in-the-middle because we had a fake access point or because we are physically connected to the target computer, regardless of the way that we became the man-in-the-middle), we can inject the hook code into the browser, into the pages (HTTP pages) that the target person browses, and they'll be hooked to BeEF without clicking on anything, and without our having to send them anything. We're going to use the exact same link in the page that we used before, which is http://10.0.2.15:3000/hook.js, or the script. We are going to copy it and then we'll paste it into our --inject plugin with MITMf. The command...
