When launching an attack on a network, the first step is to gather information about the target. This includes identifying open ports and services, as well as any vulnerabilities that can be exploited. Open ports are potential entry points for attackers, so it is important to understand which ones are exposed and what type of traffic they allow. This information can be gathered using tools.
Once you know information about the target, you can start to attack it. In this course you will learn how to launch passwords attacks and how to setup a backdoor. A password attack is a type of brute force attack that attempts to guess passwords. Common methods include dictionary attacks, where a list of common words is used as the basis for guessing, and brute force attacks, where every possible combination of characters is tried. Password attacks can be very effective, especially if the passwords are weak or easily guessed.Setting up a backdoor on a system allows an attacker to gain access even if the system is properly secured. This can be done by placing a malicious program on the system that gives the attacker remote access, or by modifying an existing program to give the attacker access. Backdoors can be difficult to detect, so it is important to be aware of them when assessing security threats.
