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.

Reading columns and their data

In this section, lets see whether we can select and have a look at all the details that exist within the accounts table. Let's see whether we can query the database and read the information stored in the accounts table. To do that, we need to know the names of the columns that exist within the accounts table because, if we look at the way we're using our statement, we're performing union select table_name from information_schema.tables, so we still don't know what columns exist in the accounts table. We can guess that there is a username and a password, but sometimes they could have different names, so we're going to see how we can select the columns for a certain table.

The command is going to be very similar to the tables command we used in the preceding section, the only difference is instead of table_name, we're...
