Introduction to hacking:
The course introduces the concept of hacking, how malicious hackers intrude into computer systems causing huge losses both in terms of data and financial for companies- How hacking has emerged as a career option and what needs to be done to achieve mastery in hacking.
General Hacking Methods:
This chapter introduces the learner to hacking methods employed by hackers and information security professionals.
Port Scanning: Port scanning is the process by which hackers send messages to ports to see which are open and susceptible to vulnerabilities. Just as a burglar looks for a open window, door or ventilation to make his entry into a house, hackers send messages to ports to check weaknesses.
ICMP Sweep/Scanning: basic network scanning to find out which IP addresses map to live hosts or computers. Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) – ping is an ICMP ECHO to multiple hosts, a return ICMP echo is received if the port is live.
Tools for ICMP Echo- fping, gping, nmap for UNIX, Pinger Software- Rhino9, Ping Sweep for Windows
Netbios Hacking – getting entry into a computer system through Network Basic Input Output System (NETBIOS). This is how computers in a LAN or WAN is targeted- sniffing – ip addresses-local subnet
Internet Application Security and Vulnerability: Security breach, proactive, defensive strategies, Authentication, authorization. Common flaws – injection flaws-passing unfiltered data to the SQL server, to the browser, preventing injection flaws, Cross Site Scripting, insecure direct object references, security misconfiguration. Sensitive data exposure, missing function level access control, cross-site request forgery. Components with vulnerabilities, unvalidated redirects and forwards.
Introduction to attack techniques, classes of attacks-passive attack, active attack, distributed attack, insider attack, close-in attack, phishing attack, hijack attack, spoof attack, buffer overflow, exploit attack, password attack. Online identity-location, birth date, family connections, hacking , banking, financial transactions.
Protecting online identity:
Protecting the identity of the user, tips for protecting online identity- social media, profiles, privacy settings, usage of multiple passwords, phishing emails, https for online transactions – s stands for security.
Reducing the risk of online identity theft: Stealing personal information, impersonating, social security number, signature, name, address, phone number, mobile number,financial details- bank,credit card info.-committing fraud.
Reducing Risk of online identity theft- online transactions- ask companies how data will be used, Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Site security certificate,, data encryption, credit card info – storage and use. Destroy papers containing credit card info.
Action taken- Online identity theft- contact, credit bureaus- Experian, Equifax, TransUnion, fraud alert, the thief may not be able to open bank account on time.; monitor credit reports.security freeze, child identity theft, FTC Identity Theft Affidavit. ATM/Debt cards, social security number misuse, victim statement, reporting to police, legal support, keeping records.
Phishing- Introduction to phishing- sending email to user falsely claiming to be a genuine enterprises – get personal information for identity theft- directing to a site-updating password, credit cards , account information-bogus website, stealing information. Anti-Phishing-
Type of Phishing email/spam
Fraudsters sent the same email to millions of users seeking personal information, account verification, urgency, web-based delivery- hacker – an intermediary between website and phishing system.- Instant messaging, Trojan hosts, link manipulation, keyloggers, session hacking, system reconfiguration, content injection, phishing through search engines, phone phishing, malware phishing. Anti-phishing-steps to protect computer- using firewalls, anti-virus software, Secure Socket Layer (SSL), bank, credit care statements. Summary of approaches.
Introduction to computer security and cybercrime:
Computer crime refers to stealing data, intrusion into websites and systems- examples- cyber terrorism, cyberbullying, denial of service attack, espionage, fraud- manipulating data, changing banking records, creating malware, spoofing, unauthorized access, spamming, harvesting, salami slicing.
Cyber Security-IT security aims to protect computers, programs, networks, unauthorized access, modification or alteration. Importance of cybersecurity– government organizations, companies, corporates, financial institutions, hospitals- integrity of data, confidential information, privacy, data transmission and theft, cyber attacks.
Types of hacker attacks, spoofing- unauthorized access to user’s system impersonation, steal personal data, bank account, passwords, credit card info.- email spoofing, caller ID, URL spoof attacks- fraudulent website to obtain info from users, install viruses.credit card info.
Session hijacking –exploitation of web session control mechanism, by exposing the session token by means of predicting a valid session token to get unauthorized entry to the web server- methods- predicting session token, session sniffing, IP snooping, client-side attacks, man-in-the-middle attack,man-in-the-browser attack.
DOS and Buffer over Flow Attack- take advantage of a program awaiting on user’s input –Stack-based and heap-based attacks. Heap-based- floods memory reserved for a program execution- buffer overrun, memory object or stack. When user inputs data, the stack which empties until then writes a return memory address to the stack putting the user’s input on top of it.
