#Hydra –h

This command will show all options used with hydra command.

hydra -h


You have many options on how to attack with logins and passwords

With -l for login and -p for password you tell hydra that this is the only

login and/or password to try.

With -L for logins and -P for passwords you supply text files with entries.


hydra -l admin -p password ftp://localhost/

hydra -L default_logins.txt -p test ftp://localhost/

hydra -l admin -P common_passwords.txt ftp://localhost/

hydra -L logins.txt -P passwords.txt ftp://localhost/

Additionally, you can try passwords based on the login via the “-e” option.

The “-e” option has three parameters:

s – try the login as password

n – try an empty password

r – reverse the login and try it as password

If you want to, e.g. try “try login as password and “empty password”, you

specify “-e sn” on the command line

Getting Start Nessus Scan and finding Vulnerability

When you have finished installation and configuration of Nessus How to Install Nessus on Kali Linux 2.0, then you have ready to scan and finding vulnerability of local, network, window and Linux machine. In this note I will guide you to find vulnerability of network and system step by step.

Getting Start finding Local Vulnerability by Nessus

Local vulnerability depends on what system you are using local if you are using windows operating system then you will find windows vulnerability and if you are using Linux operating system then you will find vulnerability of linux.

How to Nessus scan policies and report

Let’s start the process of find out Kali Linux vulnerabilities with Nessus by opening the Iceweacel web browser:

  1. Open Nessus at And login with credential.
  2. Click on the Policies on the bar at the bottom.
  3. Click on  New Policy button at the left side bar.
  4. Select desired templates. In policy wizard has following Scanner templates:

Nessus scanner tampletes

SCAP Compliance Audit: Audit systems using Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) content.

Web Application Tests: For users performing generic web application scans.

Windows Malware Scan: For users searching for malware on Windows systems.

Policy Settings: Every policy has five sections under settings:

  1. Basics
  2. Discovery
  3. Assessment
  4. Report
  5. Advanced

These sections allow user to make changes in the policy setting and refine the settings.

  1. Basics: Basic section has two parts
  • General : There are two section instide the general section:
    • Name: Provide the policy name like “Local vulnerability scan”
    • Description: Here user can provide the description about the policy
  • Permission : In this section there are two option:
    • Private : this policy is used only by you.
    • Share: This policy is available for other users.
      Nessus Policy general section
  1. Discovery section: This section under policy settings control the following option used by policy.
    1. Host discovery
    2. Port scanning.
    3. Service Discovery.
      Nessus discovery section
  2. Assessment: Under this section User configure “Web Application scanning” setting and SMB enumeration perform if required. If the “scan web application” is not enabled these option will not visible.Nessus Policy assesment section
  3. Report: as the name of this policy shows, that this section is used to configures the appereance of scan report and where It will be show and deliver after complete scan.Nessus policy report section
  4. Advance: The Advanced section allows configuration of more advanced features, such as performance settings, additional checks, and logging features.
    Nessus advance section

As you see there are two tab on top side one is setting and another is credential about setting I have described everything. Next, describe about credential tab

Policy Credentials:  Nessus is very effective scanner against vulnerability, checked large veriety of vulnerability, which could be exploited remotely. For remote scanning, nessus log into the system and check for vulnerability on targeted host. Following type of credential are required for policy.

credential menu

  • Cloud Services, which includes Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Salesforce.com
  • Database, this section used to give the information about Username, password, Databse type which includes Oracle, MySQL, DB2, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server, Databse port, Authentication type, and SID. This is also include MongoDB Databse.
  • Host, which includes Windows logins, SSH, and SNMPv3

What is Vulnerability?

What is vulnerability

Vulnerability is loop holes and weakness in computer Security, which allow attacker (hacker) to get into the System and reduce a System’s information assurance. There are three flaws of vulnerability:

  1. System suspicious flaw.
  2. Attacker find out vulnerability.
  3. Attacker exploit System by this vulnerability a very critical flaw.

It is also known as security bugs. Computer users and network personnel can protect computer systems from vulnerabilities by keeping software security patches up to date. These patches can remedy flaws or security holes that were found in the initial release. Computer and network personnel should also stay informed about current vulnerabilities in the software they use and seek out ways to protect against them.

Ettercap Kali Linux 2.0

What is ARP?

ARP stand for Address Resolution Protocol It works on network layer and used to resolve IP Address into a MAC Address (physical Address). When a new computer or device is connected in the network it broadcast its MAC Address over the TCP/IP network, then all the connected devices find the MAC address of new machine and make the entry into the ARP table. It also request to obtain the MAC address and IP address of connected devices in network by broadcasting and When it gets the reply from the connected devices with IP and MAC it create a ARP table and make the entry of IP address and MAC address of connected devices.

To see the available arp table in your PC run the following command in command line prompt

arp -a


arp table on Attacker

This command will work both Linux and Window systems.

ARP Poisoning Attack:

ARP poisoning is type of attack in which Attacker changes the MAC address on victim’s ARP table. Attacker sends request and reply with forged packets to the victim, victim think these packets come from destination and can’t identify the forged packets and it make entry of forged MAC into his ARP table. As result victim sends packets to the attacker machine instead of real machine because, Now Victim works according its ARP table where destination MAC address is replaced by Attacker’s MAC.

ARP poisoning attack is very effective over the network, wired or wireless. By the help of this attack, Attacker can steal very sensitive information like username, password and credit card information.

Ettercap Tutorial

Ettercap is a comprehensive suite for man in the middle attacks. It features sniffing of live connections, content filtering on the fly and many other interesting tricks. It supports active and passive dissection of many protocols and includes many features for network and host analysis.

Using Wireshark filter ip address and port inside network

Hello friends, I am glad you here and reading my post on Using wireshark filter ip address. In this I will cover about sniffing, wireshark, it’s features, capturing data by wireshark filter ip address and port. First we discuss about Senario.


If your PC inside network or using wifi in your laptop, mobile, and other devices. If you open the any site and enter the login credential username and password. This username and password is transmit over the network and same if you enter the credit card information, also travel over the network. If someone called hacker can capture this credential then assume what will be happened? And it is possible by sniffing let’s see how!

What is Sniffing?

Sniffing is the process to monitor and capture the data travel over the network. This process commonly used by Network Administrator or Security auditor to find out the issue in the network and malicious activity inside network. Some Bad guy called hacker used this process to capture important credential like Username, password and credit card information. Once the information is captured hacker can get access without any problem. All this is happened by network sniffer tools like wireshark tcpdump etc.

Definition of Wireshark:

Wireshark is a network packet analyzer. A network packet analyzer will try to capture network packets and tries to display that packet data as detailed as possible.

You could think of a network packet analyser as a measuring device used to examine what’s going on inside a network cable, just like a voltmeter is used by an electrician to examine what’s going on inside an electric cable (but at a higher level, of course).

Wireshark is perhaps one of the best open source packet analysers available today.

Some intended purposes of Wireshark

Here are some examples people use Wireshark for:

  • Network administrators use it to troubleshoot network problems
  • Network security engineers use it to examine security problems
  • Developers use it to debug protocol implementations
  • People use it to learn network protocolinternals

Using wireshark Features

The following are some of the many features Wireshark provides:

  • Available forUNIX and Windows.

Open Wireshark in Kali Linux: In Kali Linux wireshark exist under Application > Kali Linux > Top 10 Security Tools > Wireshark Or type following command on terminal and hit enter

$wireshark &

open wireshsark in kali linux

Capturing data in Wireshark:

After start wireshark you will find the list of available interface like eth0 or wireless etc. select the interface and click on start to start capturing process. As soon as you click one the start, you’ll see the packets start to appear in real time. Wireshark captures each packet sent to your system or from your system. If you’re capturing data over wireless interface and have enabled promiscuous mode, you’ll be able to see other’s system packets over the network.

selecet interface and start capturing

Stop the capturing: To stop the capturing, click on the cross sign over interface in red colour

Save captured data: for analyzing the traffic over the network later you need to save captured data into the file. Next, File > save, Give the location where you want to save and file name then click on the save. By default file saved in .pcapng format in wireshark version 1.10.2.

save file 1

Open saved file: To open the saved file go, File > Open or press Ctrl+O short key and browse saved file then open.

Capture only incoming and outgoing traffic on particular IP address

  • host ==

Capture traffic to or from a range of IP addresses:

  • addr ==

Capture traffic from a range of IP addresses:

  • src ==

Capture traffic to a range of IP addresses:

  • dst ==

Capture only DNS (port 53) traffic:

  • dns

Capture only Ethernet type EAPOL:

  • eapol

DNS and not particular IP address

  • (dns) && !(ip.dst ==

DNS and destination ip address

  • (dns) && (ip.dst ==

And more filters are available you can Visit for more detail

SNMP Enumeration Kali by snmpwalk tool and snmpenum

MODULE 6:- Enumeration

  1. Secure Socket Layer SSL analysis with sslstrip in Kali Linux
  2. SNMP Enumeration Kali by snmpwalk tool and snmpenum
  3. nbtscan and nmap “nbtstat -s” For SMB scanning

SNMP Enumeration by Kali Linux

SNMP Enumeration Kali Linux by snmpwalk tool is a Free and best snmp monitoring software tools based on windows and linux. Snmp tools are used to scan and monitor the snmp network. I this article you will learn about commands. snmpenum tools for kali linux also used to enumeration.

What is SNMP?

The Simple Network Management Protocol is used to manage and monitor hardware devices connected to a network. It is managed by network management software.To utilize SNMP in this fashion you need three distinct components:

  • Network Management System
  •  SNMP Agents: A Device that can communicate each other by using snmp protocol
  •  Managed devices

Management Information Base (MIB)

The managed devices records information and by use of the deployed agent communicates with the overarching Network Management System. This information is stored in a Management Information Base (MIB).

It is dangerous as it is a clear text protocol and as such could potentially provide valuable information to an attacker
You may have heard of Community Strings, the default are Public and Private. Should you be utilising this in your domain, these should be changed as they are the first strings that an attacker will try to gain information about your network and more dangerously, control over your hardware.

SNMP Traps

Another term of note is SNMP Traps, this is generally when a device has been configured to receive pre-configured alerts/ information from other clients. It uses UDP Port 161 to communicate.

What is SNMP Enumeration Kali?

It is process of using SNMPwalk tool to enumerate user accounts and devices on a target system. SNMP has two passwords to access and configure the SNMP agent from the management station. The first is called a read community string. This password lets you view the configuration of the device or system. The second is called the read/write community string, its for changing or editing the configuration on the device.

By default read community string is public and read/write community string is private. If these passwords are not changed they can be used by an attacker do snmp enumeration Kali linux as SNMP Manager. If the default password is not as above other default passwords can be found on
