SESSION ATTACKS


Here are some of the most popular session attacks that are currently being used by hackers to exploit session vulnerabilities.


  • Session hijacking: This is when a user’s session  identifier is stolen and used by the attacker to  assume the identity  of the user. The stealing of  the session identifier can be executed several different ways, but XSS is the most common. 




  • Session fixation: This is when an attacker is assigned a valid session identifier by  the  application  and  then  feeds  this  session  to an  unknowing  user. This is usually done with a web URL that the user must click on the link. Once the user clicks the link and signs into the application, the attacker can then use the same session identifier to assume the identity of the user. This attack also occurs when the web server accepts any session from a user (or attacker) and does not assign a new session upon authentication. In this case, the attacker will use his or her own, prechosen session, to send to the victim. These attacks work because the session identifier is allowed to be reused (or replayed) in multiple sessions.

  • Session donation: This is very similar to session fixation, but instead of assuming the identity of the user, the attacker will feed the session identifier of the attacker’s session to the user in hopes that the user completes an action unknowingly. The classic example is to feed the user a valid session identifier that ties back to the attacker’s profile page that has no information populated.  When  the  user  populates the form (with  password, credit card info, and other goodies), the information is actually tied to the attacker’s account.

  • Session  ID  in  the  URL:  This  is  when  session  identifiers  are  passed  as  URL parameters during the request and response cycle. If this functionality is present,  an attacker  can feed such  a URL to  the user to  conduct any of the attacks described above.

Social Engineering Toolkit (SET)

Social Engineering Toolkit  (SET) is an advanced,  multifunctional, and easy-to-use computer-assisted social engineering toolset, created by the founders of  TrustedSec (https://www.trustedsec.com/). It helps you prepare the most effective way to exploit client-side application vulnerabilities and makes a fascinating attempt to capture the target's confidential information (for example, e-mail passwords). Some of the most efficient and useful attack methods employed by SET include targeted phishing e-mails with a malicious file attachment, Java applet attacks, browser-based exploitation, gathering website credentials, creating infectious portable media (USB/ DVD/CD), mass-mailer attacks, and other similar multiattack web vectors. This combination of attack methods provides you with a powerful platform to utilize and select the most persuasive technique that could perform an advanced attack against the human element.

Cracking Wifi Using :Fern(GUI)

Fern(GUI)

As a part of Kali linux , fern can be directly used from kali linux , i would be recommending the use of kali because while using other linux environments it could be a trouble because while using fern it automatically detects the path of aircrack-ng and python installed , while in other environments it is needed to set it manually...so follow the following steps :-->

1.) Download kali linux iso and make a bootable pendrive .....if you dont know how to make bootable pendrive  then follow the steps given in blog of trinity rescue kit

Kali linux iso (amd64) recommended -->here
Link to trinity rescue kit blog --> here


 2.)Open Kali linux Goto Applications-->Wireless Attack--> Fern

3.)Select Interface card wlan0

4.)Double click any where in GUI

5.)Select enable x-terms ...so that you can view that happening ...while through a automated program...

6.)Click on select network

7.)Choose the type of network that is WEP/WPA

8.)I would recommend to add dictonary file ..…

Deep Web - Part 1

What is deep web ?

Deep web Aka Invisible web Aka Hidden web are parts of the world wide web whose contents are not indexed by standard search engines.
LEVELS OF WORLD WIDE WEB :
SURFACE WEBBERGIE WEBDEEP WEBCHARTER WEBMARIANAS WEB SURFACE WEB :
The surface web also known as Visible web , Clearnet , Indexed web or Lightnet is that portion of the world wide web that is readily available to the general public and searchable with standard web search engines. Level of web where vast majority of internet users are connected to and which is accessible in any nation that does not block internet access.E.g: Social media sites like Facebook, informational websites like Wikipedia, general websites, etc

BERGIE WEB :

It is the part of world wide web that is not indexed by search-engines,which is directly accessible and no proxy required. E.g: Google locked results, recently web crawled old content, pirated media, pornography etc
