Network ExploitationComputer network exploitation (CNE) is a technique through which computer networks are used to infiltrate target computers' networks to extract and gather intelligence data. It enables the exploitation of the individual computers and computer networks of an external organization or country in order to collect any sensitive or confidential data, which is typically kept hidden and protected from the general public.
In this tutorial,we use armitage to exploit the network but before going to tutorial part first understand what is armitage?
In simple term,armitage is the GUI of the metasploit framework.Armitage is a scriptable red team collaboration tool. It has a server component to allow a team of hackers to share their accesses to compromised hosts. It’s also possible to write bots that connect to this team server and extend Armitage with scripts written in a language called Cortana.
