The next part is choosing your victim’s mac address by using nmap or airodump. There’s a lot of tools to find the connected devices and after choosing your victim let’s move on sniffing part!

  • bettercap -X -L -T (mac address…)

2While you have the option in choosing your victims one by one you can also sniff all the devices connected to the network with the next command.

  • bettercap -X -L

3There’s more useful commands with bettercap available, it depends on what you want to capture, you can even specify the parsers to use. Endless possibilities!

Kali Linux+Hacking

This is my old hobby since Backtrack days – penetration testing. But time has come a new distro has emerge complete with all tools called Kali. Let’s start first with installing Kali Linux on your machine – dual boot, virtual machine, Google is filled with tutorials on where to download and how to install Kali on different OSes so I’m going to skip that part. Most of the tools in this site are already included in Kali because it is packed with more than 300-plus tools and I will only include installation tutorials on tools that are not installed. So what are you doing? Start booting Linux and Enjoy Hacking!! 🙂
