Ethical HAcking 0x00

Understanding the importance of security

HACKING: Hacking!! so the question here is what is hacking actually mean??
Haking is actually a process of doing reverse engineering, which is done by an expert of that subject.

Now if it is done in computer field then it is a computer  hacking ,if it done in automobile field then it is a automobile hacking and so on.
So what really you need to note is that IT IS DONE BY AN EXPERT OR GROUP OF EXPERTS.
That simply mean to do hacking you must have profound knowledge of your subject on which you are attempting hacking.

Types Of HAcking:
1:Malicious Hacking
2:Defensive Hacking(Ethical Hacking)

Both the type of hacking are self explanatory.Malicious Hacking is done to harm someone or damage something for money or for any other benefit.
Defensive Hacking is done so that no one can easly barge in to your syytem and able to steal your confidential data  .It can also  be done to find vulnerabilities in system so that they can be patched.

Category of Hackers:
1:BLACK HAT:  They are also known as crackers.A "black hat" hacker is a hacker who "violates computer security for little reason beyond maliciousness or for personal gain". Black hat hackers form the stereotypical, illegal hacking groups often portrayed in popular culture, and are "the epitome of all that the public fears in a computer criminal.

2:)GRAY HAT:A grey hat hacker is a combination of a Black Hat and a White Hat Hacker. A Grey Hat Hacker may surf the internet and hack into a computer system for the sole purpose of notifying the administrator that their system has been hacked, for example. Then they may offer to repair their system for a small fee.A grey hat can be a black hat and white hat depending upon situation and price offered.

3:)WHITE HAT:A white hat hacker breaks security for non-malicious reasons, perhaps to test their own security system or while working for a security company which makes security software. The term "white hat" in Internet slang refers to an ethical hacker. This classification also includes individuals who perform penetration tests and vulnerability assessments within a contractual agreement..

Internet started with a concept of sharing in mind but with the advent of new technologies now it has been changed to stealing.


  • Confidentiality
  • Integrity
  • Availability 
  • Authentication
  • Authorization

If you have Triple A's in your security system then according to industry needs its a pretty decent security system and it will also have Confidentiality and Integrity automatically.
Authentication mean who you are??
i.e you give a password and you are in .

So authentication can be One factor where you have to only remember a password to prove who you are.
there are also two factor ,three factor and so on authentication model available used in industries according to their needs.
RADIUS SERVER have such triple "A's" inside it.
RADIUS Stands for Remote Access Dial In User.

Government is also building SAWN(State Area Wide Network) which will  make things easy to to have a lpg connection you can apply from your village their is no need to come to city and do registration for it.something like !..
Now security is add as one of  important Umbrella activity in software process.

Hacking Windows 10 UWP App: DLL Injection & common Vulnerabilities

I recently started working on  widows 10 Apps( Apps not Applications) security. Before diving deep in hacking terms lets try to understand what's new in Windows 10 UWP( Universal Platform) as compared to old Apps. Lets begin with how apps actually work on windows 10(desktop/tablet). Now windows 10 comes with a container only for running apps inside the isolated environment. By default, /APPCONTAINER(Linker Flag) is off. This option modifies an executable to indicate whether the app must be run in the appcontainer process-isolation environment. Specify /APPCONTAINER for an app that must run in the appcontainer environment—for example, a Windows Store app. (The option is set automatically in Visual Studio when you create a Windows Store app from a template.) For a desktop app, specify /APPCONTAINER:NO or just omit the option. The /APPCONTAINER option was introduced in Windows 8. Now there is no registry entry concept for these app in the System HIVE rather they install they own hiv

SSI Injection Attack

SSIs are directives present on Web applications used to feed an HTML page with dynamic contents. They are similar to CGIs, except that SSIs are used to execute some actions before the current page is loaded or while the page is being visualized. In order to do so, the web server analyzes SSI before supplying the page to the user. The Server-Side Includes attack allows the exploitation of a web application by injecting scripts in HTML pages or executing arbitrary codes remotely. It can be exploited through manipulation of SSI in use in the application or force its use through user input fields. It is possible to check if the application is properly validating input fields data by inserting characters that are used in SSI directives, like:  Code: < ! # = / . " - > and [a-zA-Z0-9] Another way to discover if the application is vulnerable is to verify the presence of pages with extension .stm, .shtm and .shtml. However, the lack of these type of pages does not mean that th
