Learn hacking 3.00 Gaining access

in hack •  7 months ago

Hi everyone,

In this article, I want to talk about gaining access to a machine. This is the phase, after reconnaissance and scanning (https://steemit.com/hack/@pierlave/learn-hacking-2-00-reconnaissance). This phase is about exploiting a vulnerability that you found with the information you gathered in the phases before.

It's important to remember that not every vulnerability will give you full access to a system. If you found multiple vulnerabilities, it's more efficient to use the one that gives you more control over the target!


There are a lot of tools to exploit many types of vulnerabilities. Here are some of my favorites!

Metasploit (good to exploit machines) https://www.metasploit.com/
Sqlmap (good for SQL injections, database) http://sqlmap.org/
Social Engineer Toolkit (cloning a website for exemple) https://github.com/trustedsec/social-engineer-toolkit
BeEF (browser exploitation) http://beefproject.com/

Depending on your target, you will choose the right tool for the job.


You can search the web for exploits concerning the vulnerabilities you found.

You can take a look at this article to see what gaining access of a machine can look like.
