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.

Information gathering from target websites

So far, we have just been using commands and tools to gather information about the victim. Now, we will make use you information that we get from URLs the victims browses, also how we can analyze the files from the targets machine to which we have access to and what useful information we can gather through them. We will then see how to use the gathered information to launch attacks.

Finding subdomains

In this section we're going to study subdomains. We see subdomains everywhere, for example, subdomain.target.com. Now, if we have beta.facebook.com, we would have mobile.facebook.com, or we might have user.facebook.com. Suppose we google mail.google.com, which just takes us to Gmail...
