Hacking is the process of using various types of tools or technology in the form of computer programmes and scripts to get access to unauthorised data to test the security measures of a computer system or network.
Hacking devices are simply computer-programmed tools designed by developers that hackers use to identify flaws in computer operating systems, various web applications, servers, and networks.
The first thought that pops up in our mind when it comes to hacking software is that it will cause damage to our computer system. However, the reality is so different that employers might need someone as a professional expert to protect the important data concerning valuable assets to companies, hardware, and software systems from attackers.
In this blog, I’ll share the 5 best hacking devices that every hacker should have, as well as explain how to use them.
These devices are simply USB devices that, when connected to the computer, register as a keyboard, and you pre-program them to send keystrokes very quickly. As a result, as a hacker, you can do the following:
- Download and Execute Malware from the internet.
- Execute system commands
- Create a reverse shell
- Steal Passwords
- and much more. It all depends on how you use and command the keystroke injectors.
The best thing about this device is that it stimulates a keyboard; therefore, if programmed properly, it will run undetected even by your antivirus.
Now you can find this keystroke injector in the same place as a USB power cable. So, if you want to attack your target, simply grab this power cable and give it to them, or, as shown in Mr. Robot, use a regular USB Keystroke Injector and throw it near your target and hope they connect it to their computer. There can be various methods to trap your target; just find it out.
This is a small device to which you connect a keyboard and then connect the keylogger to your target computer. Then this device will record every keystroke that your target types on the keyboard.
Now, the normal hardware keyloggers have internal storage within them, whereas the professional version has a cloud system that will store all the keystrokes, and you can access it from anywhere.
3. Wireless Adapter
Most computers these days come with a built-in wireless adapter, but that will not help you while hacking. You cannot connect it to virtual machines, and most of these built-in devices do not support packet injection, monitor mode, or AP Mode (Access point mode).Monitor mode is needed to capture data that is not sent to our computer; packet injection is needed to inject data into your target computer; and AP mode is needed if you want to start your own fake WiFi network or honeypot.
So these Wireless Adapter helps you to Hack WiFi Network, Sniff data ,Capture data, Modify them or to start a Fake WiFi Network you need these adapters.
* It is important to note that brand does not matter when purchasing a wireless adapter, but features do.
4. Android Phone With NetHunter
NetHunter is an Android version that is designed for hacking. It comes with a large number of tools that are very useful. For example, you can use it to launch Keystroke Injection attacks similar to those launched by Keystroke Injection devices. The very cool thing about this is, it is very easy to do Social engineer your target and just tell them, “I just need to charge my device but I forgot the charger.” Now, when your target connects your device to their computer, it will automatically create a reverse shell, download malware, steal all stored passwords, and the list goes on. Also, you can use NetHunter to perform a DNS spoofing attack, a MMIT (man in the middle attack), bypass login screen, and many more.
5. Raspberry Pi
It is a fully fledged computer but small in size; the Raspberry Pi 0 is even smaller than a credit card. You can do whatever you want with this; this is a proper computer. Everything that you do on your desktop or laptop can be done here. You can even install Kali Linux on it.
The best part is that you can have it automatically send you a reverse connection once connected to a network, allowing you to gain access to any network you want simply by plugging it into a LAN port, and then from there you can run whatever tools you want: Nmap, Beef, Burp Suite, you can sniff data, you can modify data. It can also be used to launch fake WiFi networks, honeypots. You can do pretty much everything with the Raspberry Pi.
Now in the present day, you never know what will happen to you. It may be that a very close friend of yours can fall victim to social engineering and get hacked, or maybe you yourself, when you are careless, can get hacked, which will cost you later. So as the day passes, it is certain that cyber attacks will increase and hacking scenarios will go boom. So, always think twice before taking any steps or performing anything. Never plug in any USB devices you find lying around, do not connect to unsecure networks, and do not fall for any traps.
Stay safe and Happy hacking 😀
