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.

In this section, we're going to learn how to generate an undetectable backdoor. A backdoor is just a file that, when executed on a target computer, will give us full access to it. There are a number of ways of generating backdoors, but what we're interested in is generating a backdoor that is not detectable by antivirus programs. This actually isn't hard to do, as we will see, if you use a tool called Veil-Evasion.

Veil-Evasion used to be a standalone tool, but its creators have recently combined it with other tools in the framework, re-releasing it as Veil-Framework. Nowadays, it is usually referred to as just Veil.
