Weekly Journal of Ethical Hacking Part 11 Lecture 5

I didn’t notice that I accidentally skip some of the lecture to try and summed up. Specifically Lecture 5 and 6. It’s not like I haven’t done it. In fact, I did your exercise for this lecture. But I haven’t make a summed up version of this lecture yet.

In this Lecture, our goal will be to try to Enumerate our target. For this one, we don’t need to have Kali Linux, we only needed Windows command prompt because it was used for enumerating Windows OS.

Enumeration is used to collect information about shares on the network, User names signed to the network, and last time user is logged on.

Alright, let’s try to enumerate an IP address. We will be using nbtstat command for this. Let’s see what nbtstat has to offer.

We will try the nbtstat -A [IP address] first. Here is the result.

On the Wifi, it shows a NetBIOS Remote Machine Name Table. But what is NetBIOS? NetBIOS is stands for Network Basic Input Output System. It was a programming interface and it allows computer communication over a LAN (Local Area Network).

On the table there is some numbers beside the name. It was called suffixes. It was used to describe what the services is.

<00> is the Workstation service registered the computer name, or in other words NetBIOS name.

<20> is registered by the server register. The computer must has this service so they could share printers or files.

<1E> is signifies that Browser Service Election is running. Browser Service is is a feature of Microsoft Windows to let users easily browse and locate shared resources in neighboring computers.

Conclusion: You can use nbtstat to enumerate Microsoft OS. If you wanted to use it on Kali Linux, you need to download it first. It was used to show connections between computers and more.
