5 Steps to hacking(ethical hacking)- SOUTECH Cyber security tips, techniques and tools guide 2017

The 5 Phases Every Hacker Must Follow- Part 1

Originally, to “hack” meant to possess extraordinary computer skills to extend the limits of computer
systems. Hacking required great proficiency. However, today there are automated tools and codes
available on the Internet that makes it possible for anyone with a will and desire, to hack and succeed.
Mere compromise of the security of a system does not denote success. There are websites that insist on
“taking back the net” as well as those who believe that they are doing all a favor by posting the exploit
details. These can act as a detriment and can bring down the skill level required to become a successful
attacker.
The ease with which system vulnerabilities can be exploited has increased while the knowledge curve
required to perform such exploits has shortened. The concept of the elite/super hacker is an illusion.
However, hackers are generally intelligent individuals with good computer skills, with the ability to create
and explore into the computer’s software and hardware. Their intention can be either to gain knowledge
or to dig around to do illegal things. Attackers are motivated by the zeal to know more while malicious
attackers would intend to steal data. In general, there are five phases in which an intruder advances an
attack:
1. Reconnaissance
2. Scanning
3. Gaining Access
4. Maintaining Access
5. Covering Tracks
