Learning about hacking can be very time-consuming and difficult, especially when you have no idea where to start. This can be especially daunting if you’ve decided to learn about ethical hacking – the most common type of hacking that protects instead of destroys information – and you don’t even know where to begin. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be so difficult or tedious to learn this valuable skill set. Just follow these easy steps and your entire hacking process will be done in no time!
The goal of this blog post is to introduce you to how hacking is done. The first step is entering a site, which is a process I will go into more detail about in this post. In order to enter a website, one must first find it and then break into it. One way of finding a site would be through Google’s search engine. Once found, one could take their browser and visit the desired site using an internet browser such as Safari or Chrome. Once they have arrived at their destination, they must now break into it by exploiting the code that has been written on the server side of the website’s programming language in order to break through its defenses.
The Three Pillars of Hacking
Many people think that hacking is a one-size-fits-all endeavor. In reality, hacking can take on many different forms depending on your goal and motivation. There are three main pillars to successful hacking: reconnaissance, exploitation, and post-exploitation.
Reconnaissance is the act of gathering information about a target prior to an attack or exploit. It is used to map out a potential victim’s network in order to plan for future attacks. One method for reconnaissance is scanning with common ports such as 80 (HTTP), 443 (HTTPS), 22 (SSH), 25 (SMTP), etc., which we will cover in more detail below. After recon, you need to make your decision whether or not it would be worth the time and energy required to perform an actual exploit against a system before taking any further action.
The Four Stages of Hacking
The Six Steps of Hacking
1. Know your target – know what you are looking for and how to get there.
2. Identify vulnerabilities – identify any weaknesses or vulnerabilities in the system that you can use to gain access to it.
3. Gather information – gather any information on those vulnerabilities such as what company they are associated with, who is in charge of them, their phone number, etc.
4. Get into the system – find a way to get into the system using one of those vulnerabilities.
5. Explore their systems – explore all the different parts of their systems once you have gained access and figure out what you are looking for by reading all emails, seeing all files, talking to people, etc.
6. Take control – Once you have figured out what you want from the computer then take control of it and do whatever needs doing like deleting data or moving files around
As it turns out, hacking isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Mbc222 found that some sites provided more information than others. The first site was easy to hack as it didn’t require any form of registration whatsoever; however, other sites had more stringent requirements and required a username and password to navigate through the information. Mbc222 is still exploring what kinds of hacks are available in the world of hacking but has learned that there are many different levels and types of hacking.
