DOS attack using Kali Sana


Mostly people don't use ETTERCAP for a DOS attack. But its Kali Linux. Ettercap provides a good DOS against any type of target. Here is a tutorial.



(above is a video tutorial you can refer to)

Steps and instructions - 


Requirements -


* Kali Linux installed.

* A good internet connection.

* A target IP address.


What is Ettercap ?????


Ettercap is a tool built-in in Kali Linux used for various types of attacks.

You may want to read this article to know waht is DOS - DOS attacks aka SMURF attacks (all you need to know)

But here we are doing a basic DOS attack on a target system to weaken it. 

(If you want to conduct a heavy DOS attack, you can refer this tutorial - DOS attack using Slowloris in Kali Linux )

So lets do it......

Steps - 

* Open your terminals and type in "ettercap -G" 



Hit enter and you will get welcome banner for ettercap


Or you can go up to Application menu and select sniffing and spoofing - ettercap


* From the menu of ettercap select sniff - unified sniffing


* You will get an option to select your interface. Select your interface (can be eth0 if you are using wired internet or wlan if you are using Wi-Fi).


You can check your network interface by typing "ifconfig" in another terminal.

Note - Don't close the existing terminal. Otherwise ettercap will be closed.


My network interface is eth0. So I will select that. 

* After clicking Ok, you will get this screen


* Select plugins from the menu. And say manage plugins




* You will get several options. Choose DOS_ATTACK 


* You get an input tab where you have to specify the target IP address


* Make sure that the target is alive. Means if it is up or not. Do a ping command. Say "ping target IP"


My target is up and running. I will enter the IP address in the input tab and hit enter.

* After this you will get another input option. Say the same IP address (target) and hit enter.


* That's it mate. You have started the DOS attack.


After some time the target will be down. Check it out by pinging the target again. 

This was a very basic DOS attack. Works better with your internet speed. 


Thanx guys for reading this tutorial.

  3. its a basic Dos attack, no it wont work. You can use big tools like LOIC, Xoic, Pyloris, Hulk. But you need to figure out your way in. They are protected right.
