5 Best Hacking Tools Used By Hackers

Hacking Tools Used By Hackers

#1 Nessus

  • Premier UNIX vulnerability assessment tool Nessus was a popular free.
  • An open source vulnerability scanner until they closed the source code in 2005.
  • It removed the free “registered feed” version in 2008.
  • A limited ― Home Feed is still available, though it is only licensed for home network use.

#2 Wireshark

  • Sniffing the glue that holds the Internet together.
  • Wireshark is a fantastic open source network protocol analyzer for Unix and Windows.
  • It allows you to examine data from a live network or from a capture file on disk.
  • You can interactively browse the capture data, delving down into just the level of packet detail you need.

#3 Snort

  • Everyone’s favourite open source IDS.
  • This lightweight network intrusion detection and prevention system excels at traffic analysis.
  • And packet logging on IP networks.
  • Through protocol analysis, content searching, and various processors.
  • Snort detects thousands of worms, vulnerability exploit attempts, port scans.
  • And other suspicious behaviours.
  • Snort uses a flexible rule-based language to describe traffic that it should collect or pass.
  • And a modular detection engine.

#4 Netcat

  • The network of Swiss army knife.
  • This simple utility reads and writes data across TCP or UDP network connections.
  • It is designed to be a reliable back-end tool that can be used directly or easily driven by other programs and scripts.
  • At the same time, it is a feature-rich network debugging and exploration tool.
  • Since it can create almost any kind of connection you would need, including port binding to accept incoming connections.

#5 Metasploit Framework

  • Hack the Planet Metasploit took the security world by storm when it was released in 2004.
  • No other new tool even broke into the top 15 of this list.
  • Yet Metasploit comes in at #5, ahead of many well-loved tools that have been developed for more than a decade.
  • It ships with hundreds of exploits, as you can see in their online exploit building demo.
  • You can make your own exploits writing easier.
  • And it certainly beats scouring the darkest corners of the Internet for illicit shellcode of dubious quality.
