Top 10 Best Hacking Tools

Hacking always involves tools. A good hacker knows how to use tools to his best advantage. An even better hacker writes his own tools. Here I have listed the top 10 most popular tools used in hacking. It is advisable to master these tools to become a good hacker. Note that all the tools listed here are completely free.


1. Nmap

Nmap is also known as the swiss army knife of hacking. It is the best port scanner with a lot of functions
In hacking, Nmap is usually used in the footprinting phase to scan the ports of the remote computer to find out wich ports are open.


2. Wireshark

Wireshark is a packet sniffer. It captures all network traffic going through a network adapter. When performing man in the middle attacks using tools like Cain, we can use Wireshark to capture the traffic and analyze it for juicy info like usernames and passwords. It is used by network administrators to perform network troubleshooting.

3. Cain and Abel

Cain and Abel is a multipurpose windows only hacking tool. It is a bit old now, but it still does the job well. Cain can be used to crack windows password, perform man in the middle attacks, capture network passwords etc.

4. Metasploit

Metasploit is a huge database of exploits. There are thousands of exploit codes, payloads that can be used to attack web servers or any computer for that matter. This is the ultimate hacking tool that will allow you to actually "hack" a computer. You will be able to get root access to the remote computer and plant backdoors or do any other stuff. It is best to use metasploit under linux.

5. Burp Suite

Burpsuite is a web proxy tool that can be used to test web application security. It can brute force any login form in a browser. You can edit or modify GET and POST data before sending it to the server. It can also be used to automatically detect SQL injection vulnerabilities. It is a good tool to use both under Windows and Linux environments.

6. Aircrack-ng

Aircrack-ng is a set of tools that are used to crack wifi passwords. Using a combination of the tools in  aircrack, you can easily crack WEP passwords. WPA passwords can be cracked using dictionary or brute force.  Although aircrack-ng is available for Windows, it is best to use it under Linux environment. There are many issues if you use it under Windows environment.


8. Nessus

Nessus is a comprehensive  automatic vulnerability scanner.  You have to give it an IP address as input and it will scan that IP address to find out the vulnerabilities in that system. Once you know the vulnerabllities, you can use metasploit to exploit the vulnerablity. Nessus works both in Windows and Linux.



10. THC Hydra

Hydra is a fast password cracker tool. It cracks passwords of remote systems through the network. It can crack passwords of many protocols including ftp,http, smtp etc. You have the option to supply a dictionary file which contains possible passwords. It is best to use hydra under linux environment.

9. Netcat

Netcat is a great networking utility which reads and writes data across network connections, using the TCP/IP protocol. It is also known as the swiss army knife for TCP/IP. This is because netcat is extremely versatile and can perform almost anything related to TCP/IP. In a hacking scenario, it can be used as a backdoor to access hacked computers remotely. The use of netcat is limited only by the user's imagination. Find out more about netcat at the official website.

10. Putty

Although putty is not a hacking software by itself, it is a very useful tool for a hacker. It is a client for SSH and telnet, which can be used to connect to remote computers. You may use putty when you want to connect to your Backtrack machine from your Windows PC.  It can also be used to perform SSH tunneling to bypass firewalls.


Note: This list is not comprehensive. There are many tools that I have left out. Those tools that did not make the list are; Sqlmap, Havij, Acunetix Web Scanner, SuperScan, John the Ripper, Kismet, Hping3.
I have written another article about the top 5 website hacking tools.

Have you always wanted to know how to become a hacker? Great! Read this article and learn how to become a hacker.

  3. Sorry bro, there is no way to do that from your end. The only way you could do that is if you manage to hack the main server of your ISP, which is out of the question

  4. Hi Rajhansh,
    There are many other tools for performing ddos attacks. Example- LOIC, HOIC, XOIC, HULK (HTTP Unbearable Load King), R-U-Dead-Yet, DDOSIM—Layer 7 DDOS Simulator etc.
    Most of these tools are freely available with just a bit of googling.

  5. Hye Bro ..are you have more interesting hacking tool..? :3

    ReplyDelete
  6. Absolutely! There are plenty of hacking tools out there. The best part is that a majority of them are free so anyone can download and use them.
    Here are some- subterfuge, sslstrip, ettercap, w3af, webscarab, Ophcrack,

  7. hi, can one of these tools hack a gmail account? or retrieve a gmail account password?
    thanks in advance

    ReplyDelete
  8. None of these tools will help you hack or recover email addresses directly. Some of these tools may aid in the hacking process. For instance, Cain can be used to sniff out usernames and passwords of online accounts if you are in the same network. Hacking email accounts is an entirely different process.

  9. hey bro do you know any apps in the playstore that can hack peoples accounts on any website and it actually works

    ReplyDelete
  10. There is no ready-made software to hack anyone's account. Hacking simply doesn't work that way. You will not find it anywhere in playstore or any other website. The closest you can get is to perform a MITM attack when you are on the same network as your target. This will give you the victim's password

    you may start by figure it out the main server where your account info is stored .. once you have that look for loopholes to attack ... make sure you're doing this for a different machine or different internet connection there are many DNS scanner, crackers, etc. from there is all about disabling cap limit for your account ... I have done that before for someone else a while back ... I'm not encouraged you to try it or anything ...

  29. -open "cmd"
    -type "ping {desired address}" example: "ping gangte.net"
    -doing that will tell you IP address of desired site
    -in internet explorer or whatever your school uses just type: "http://{IP address}" example for gangte.net in this scenario would look like this:
    http://108.162.197.227
    -and voila, you're in!

  36. if you want to hack a website with it then open cmd and type

    ping "www.websitename.com" without the marks

    then

    copy the address mentioned in the ping (eg. 67.227.230.84)

    then type in cmd "ping address of the website -t -l 65500" without the marks

    Tip: if you want it to hack more easily then open note pad and type "ping address of the website -t -l 65500" without the marks and save it as .bat and open atleast 3 for a small site.

    ReplyDelete
  45. You can use either LOIC or HOIC to attack websites, but you won't be able to do much damage alone. To bring down a website, hacktivists install these tools on thousands of computers (botnets) and attack the same website at once.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Actually there is a way, but you have to know the location of the person and hack their Wifi. And then steal their cookies which is possible. And so Facebook. will think you just logged on recently and you are using the same computer. I am a master at hacking. It isn't that complicated according to me.

With Cain and Abel one of the cool abilities is you can scan for all networks around you and tells you the password key for that network. So if know what network your target is using you can use Cain and Abel to access your targets networks and the find your targets device and IP adress using WNW and use your targets IP to look for open ports or weakpoints and either search the your targets files or send a virus destroying their computer.

  138. Well I used to have same issue with my ex. We were married for 10years, sudden I noticed some change in her behavior and attitude towards everything. I could sense that something is wrong somewhere but I couldn't figure. I later suspect that she hold on to her too much , she might be doing something wrong. Then I told my friend who introduced me to a private website and devices investigator. I contacted and in less than two days I wouldn't believe all I found out about her escapades with some. I was so shattered and heartbroken. Had to get myself together. All thanks to webzeus1800@gmail,.com who helped me out of my misery for everything.
