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.

External backdoors

In this part, we are going to study how to create a backdoor. The only difference is that we're going to set the IP to the public IP instead of the local IP, and we're going to create a backdoor exactly the same way that we used to create it when we were hacking devices in the same network. For this, we are going to use Veil-Evasion, and we are going to do the same steps used in Chapter 12, Client-Side Attacks. We can use the list command to see what options we have we are going to use number 9, it's the exact same payload that we used in our previous example in Chapter 12, Client-Side Attacks, the reverse_http payload. We're going to use command 9, and we can see the options by using the options command. As shown in the following screenshot, we can see that the LPORT is set to 8080 by default, and we will keep that the same:
