Gathering information is the first step when a hacker tries to get information about the target. Hackers use different sources and tools to get more information, and 007THEBOND is among them. This information will be useful for you.

What is information gathering?

Information gathering is the collection of various data about a targeted victim or system. This is the first stage or initial stage of ethical hacking, where penetration testers or hackers (both black hat and white hat) try to gather victim information. It is a necessary and crucial step.

The more information collected on a subject, the higher the probability of obtaining relevant results. Data collection is not just a phase of security testing; this is an art that every penetration tester (pen tester) and hacker should master to get a better penetration testing experience.

There are various tools, techniques, and websites, including public sources such as Whois, nslookup, that help hackers gather information.

This step is necessary because you may need information when attacking a target (such as their pet’s name, best friend’s name, age, or phone number to perform a password-guessing attack or other types of attacks).

Some information-gathering tools to use

  • Nmap

allows security professionals to discover real-time hosts on the network and perform port scanning.

This tool is useful for many reasons, such as identifying open ports that are vulnerable to hacker attacks, or finding the operating system used for security holes to be exploited.

  • Metasploit

Metasploit Framework is a powerful tool for cybersecurity professionals in data collection tasks.

What makes it unique is that it is very easy to use. Both ethical hackers and cybercriminals can use it to identify vulnerabilities in networks and servers.

  • Maltego

It is a tool that enables graph-based data mining, network analysis, and visualization. It can be used to collect data, such as creating IP ranges, mapping domain names, or searching for devices connected to a network.

  • Wireshark

Wireshark is one of the most well-known and widely used packet sniffing tools today. It is used by cybersecurity professionals, network administrators, and hackers to gather information about networks.

Network packets contain a lot of information, and Wireshark collects this information for later analysis. Learning how to use Wireshark is essential if you want to collect data on the web.

  • Netcat

Netcat is a tool to establish simple connections between hosts. It can also be used with TCP and UDP protocols, for example for port scanning or creating backdoor channels.

If the appropriate ports are configured, it can read and write data. If you want to be a penetration tester or work in cybersecurity, learning how to use Netcat is very useful.

For Android users, especially those who use Termux we are going to discuss a tool that will help us gather victim information like other tools.
