Top Important Tools For Every Hacker

In this article I will give you some important tools that hackers must used for hacking. I finally decided to cover it up. Hacking tools are developed by some really good coders out there to ease out many complex tasks which have to be done manually and took painstakingly great deal of time and effort. All these tools provided here are free of cost, are tried hands on and are being actively developed by community, and if not, their alternatives are provided. To summarize it up, these are the  tools for every hacker work out there.

hackers tool kits

1. NMap :-

     I think everyone has heard of this one Nmap (Network Mapper) is a free open source utility for network exploration or security auditing. It was designed to Nmap rapidly scan large networks, although it works fine against single hosts. Many systems and network administrators also find it useful for tasks such as network inventory, managing service upgrade schedules, and monitoring host or service uptime. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. It may be used to discover computers and services on a computer network, thus creating a "map" of the network. Nmap runs on most types of computers and both console and graphical versions are available. Nmap is free and open source. Can be used by beginners (-sT) or by pros alike (packet_trace). A very versatile tool, once you fully understand the results.

The software provides features for probing computer networks such as host discovery, service and operating system detection, and other in-depth system information. These features are extensible by scripts that provide more advanced service detection, vulnerability detection, and other information. Nmap is also capable of adapting to network conditions including latency and network congestion during a scan. Nmap is under development and refinement by its user community.

2. Nessus Remote Security Scanner :-

Recently went closed source, but is still essentially free. Works with a client-server framework. In computer security, Nessus is a proprietary comprehensive vulnerability scanner which is developed by Tenable Network Security. It is free of charge for personal use in a non-enterprise environment. Its goal is to detect potential vulnerabilities on the tested systems.
According to surveys Nessus is the world's most popular vulnerability scanner, taking first place in the 2000, 2003, and 2006 security tools survey. Tenable Network Security estimates that it is used by over 75,000 organizations worldwide.

3. Wireshark :-

      Wireshark is GTK+ based. It is a network protocol analyzer, or sniffer, that lets you capture and interactively browse the contents of network frames. The goal of the project is to create a commercial-quality analyzer for Unix and to give Wireshark features that are missing from closed-source sniffers. Works great on both Linux and Windows (with a GUI), easy to use and can reconstruct TCP/IP Streams.
It is a free and open-source packet analyzer. It is used for network troubleshooting, analysis, software and communications protocol development, and education. Originally named Ethereal, in May 2006 the project was renamed Wireshark due to trademark issues.

4. Cain and Abel :-

The swiss knife of hacking tools..Cain & Abel is a password recovery tool for Microsoft Operating Systems. It allows easy recovery of various kind of passwords by sniffing the network, cracking encrypted passwords using Dictionary, Brute-Force and Cryptanalysis attacks (Cryptanalysis attacks are done via rainbow tables which can be generated with the winrtgen.exe program provided with it.), recording VoIP conversations, decoding scrambled passwords, revealing password boxes, uncovering cached passwords and analyzing routing protocols.The program does not exploit any software vulnerabilities or bugs that could not be fixed with little effort.

5. Kismet :-

Kismet is an 802.11 layer2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. Kismet will work with  Kismetany wireless card which supports raw monitoring (rfmon) mode, and can sniff 802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11g traffic. A good wireless tool as long as your card supports rfmon.
In simple word you can say that Kismet is an open source wireless network analyzer running under the Linux, Unix and Mac OS X systems. It is able to detect any 802.11 a/b/g wireless networks around it. 802.11 a/b/g protocols are WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) standards.
Kismet works with a lot of wireless cards supporting "monitor" mode. This mode captures packets without being able to associate in the same time with an access point and require privileges rights.Kismet detects networks by passively sniffing providing it the advantages to discover the "hidden" wireless networks and being itself undetectable.

6. NetStumbler :-

NetStumbler (also known as Network Stumbler) yes it is a decent wireless tool for Windows! Sadly not as powerful as it’s Linux counterparts, but it’s easy to use and has a NetStumbler nice interface, good for the basics of war-driving. NetStumbler is a tool for Windows that allows you to detect Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) using 802.11b, 802.11a and 802.11g.

It has many uses:

1. Verify that your network is set up the way you intended.
2. Find locations with poor coverage in your WLAN.
3. Detect other networks that may be causing interference on your network.
4. Detect unauthorized rogue access points in your workplace.
5. Help aim directional antennas for long-haul WLAN links.
6. Use it recreationally for WarDriving.

7. SuperScan :-

Powerful TCP port scanner, pinger, resolver. SuperScan 4 is an update of the highly popular Windows port scanning tool, SuperScan. If you need an alternative for nmap on Windows with a decent interface, I suggest you check this out, it’s pretty nice.  "OR"  SuperScan is a free connect-based port scanning software designed to detect open TCP and UDP ports on a target computer, determine which services are running on those ports, and run queries such as whois, ping, ICMP traceroute, and Hostname lookups.

Alternatively, you can try Angry IP Scanner which is a pretty good replacement for it.

Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Look at my page windows password resetter

don't worry about HTML coding, free HTML coding are available on internet like seobloggertemplates.com choose your own design...
