In this little book we will dive into the mindset of a hacker. Besides topics like information gathering and social engineering, we will compromise a server via a vulnerability in the Apache 2.4.49 web server and attack a current Ubuntu server (21.10) with a kernal exploit to gain root privileges. Have fun reading.

What is this book about?

In this book we will simulated into the role of an attacker. To do this, we will look at the complete attack chain or ”killchain”. We will start by gathering information about our target, will identify potential attack vectors, and will finally perpetrate an attack on our target. Always with the goal of taking
over an entire server as an administrator or root user. Before we start with the actual topic, let’s first clarify what a ”hacker” is in the first place and which mindset is predominant.

Have fun reading and participating.
