MSFVENOM: CREATE YOUR OWN PAYLOAD

MSFVENOM: CREATE YOUR OWN PAYLOAD

Let’s generate our own payload !

In a previous article , we discussed about the pentesting tool msfconsole and how we can use it to exploit the vulnerability and gain access on our target’s machine . In this article, we will talk about about the tool msfvenom (preinstalled in Kali Linux) which comprises of another two tools namely msfpayload and msfencoder. In our article about meterpreter, we talked about how payload is important to make a attack functionable and get most out of the attacked machine. The msfvenom does the same thing! It generates a payload according to the platform selected by you and let you access the target’s device in a way ,that when the target launches the payload, a backdoor is created which allows you to extract information from the target’s device. Here, we will see a demo how we can create a backdoor in an android device.

REQUIREMENTS:

You need to have Virtual machine of Kali Linux configured on your system. If you don’t know how to configure a virtual machine, click here to learn. Here we will be using 64-bit version 5.5.0 of Kali linux and android 9 on the smartphone.For simplicity, we are launching this attack in local environment i.e. the android device and attacker system both are on the same network.
