We’ve been working on so much lately that it’s been a while since our last post so thank you all for being patient.
We decided that we should start a Python series dedicated to Ethical Hacking that you can use for your penetration tests, so we will start with and introduction to Python modules and go from there.
Future posts in this series will include man in the middle attacks and Arp spoofing and stuff like that, you know, the good stuff 😉
Our operating system will be Kali Linux of course, we have many tutorials on how to install it, just search on the site or use Google 😀 Also we are using Python version 2.7 here, so you will need to install that also (if you are not using Kali Linux). Here’s a good guide on how to do that on Windows.
We will be using some Python packages for this series that are available at https://pypi.python.org/pypi
The Python Package Index (PyPI) is a repository of software for the Python programming language.
We will be using a lot of these Python packages for learning so bookmark that page. Also, feel free to try any of the packages yourself, there’s so many to choose from as Python has many gifted contributors.
You can just click on them and download the TAR file and install with PIP.
So let’s install our first package using PIP for an example, say we wanted to download the Google package.
pip install google
That will go ahead and install that package.
Simple, right??!! cool.
That’s it for this post guys, we will be following up with this series soon so stay tuned 😉
