What is ADB?
Android Debug Bridge (adb) is a versatile command-line tool that lets you communicate with a device. The adb command facilitates a variety of device actions, such as installing and debugging apps, and it provides access to a Unix shell that you can use to run a variety of commands on a device
Usually, developers connect to ADB service installed on Android devices using a USB cable, but it is also possible to use ADB wireless by enabling a daemon server at TCP port 5555 on the device.

The Nmap aka Network Mapper is an open source and a very versatile tool for Linux system/network administrators. Nmap is used for exploring networksperform security scansnetwork audit and finding open ports on remote machine. It scans for Live hosts, Operating systems, packet filters and open ports running on remote hosts

Nmap command usage
# nmap [Scan Type(s)] [Options] {target specification}

How to Install NMAP in Linux

Most of the today’s Linux distributions like Red HatCentOSFedoroDebian and Ubuntu have included Nmap in their default package management repositories called Yum and APT. The both tools are used to install and manage software packages and updates. To install Nmap on distribution specific use the following command.
# yum install nmap  [on Red Hat based systems]

$ sudo apt-get install nmap [on Debian based systems]
Once you’ve install latest nmap application, you can follow the example instructions provided in this article.

1. Scan a System with Hostname and IP Address

The Nmap tool offers various methods to scan a system. In this example, I am performing a scan using hostname as server2.tecmint.com to find out all open ports, services and MAC address on the system.
Scan using Hostname
[root@server1 ~]# nmap server2.tecmint.com

You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root
On above output you can see that nmap scanned a whole subnet and gave the information about those hosts which are Up in the Network.

5. Scan Multiple Servers using last octet of IP address

You can perform scans on multiple IP address by simple specifying last octet of IP address. For example, here I performing a scan on IP addresses 192.168.0.101, 192.168.0.102 and 192.168.0.103.
[root@server1 ~]# nmap 192.168.0.101,102,103

Nmap finished: 3 IP addresses (1 host up) scanned in 0.552 seconds
You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root

6. Scan list of Hosts from a File

If you have more hosts to scan and all host details are written in a file , you can directly ask nmap to read that file and perform scans. Let’s see how to do that.
Create a text file called “nmaptest.txt” and define all the IP addresses or hostname of the server that you want to do a scan.
[root@server1 ~]# cat > nmaptest.txt

localhost
server2.tecmint.com
192.168.0.101
Next, run the following command with “iL” option with nmap command to scan all listed IP address in the file.
[root@server1 ~]# nmap -iL nmaptest.txt

22. Scan Ports by Network Range

You can scan ports with ranges using expressions.
[root@server1 ~]#  nmap -p 80-160 192.168.0.101

23. Find Host Services version Numbers

We can find out service’s versions which are running on remote hosts with “-sV” option.
[root@server1 ~]# nmap -sV 192.168.0.101

Black Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Pentesters.


When it comes to creating powerful and effective hacking tools, Python is the language of choice for most security analysts. Seitz explores the darker side of Python's capabilities--writing network sniffers, manipulating packets, infecting virtual machines, creating stealthy trojans, and more.

The Python download requires about 25 Mb of disk space; keep it on your machine, in case you need to re-install Python. When installed, Python requires about an additional 90 Mb of disk space.



Downloading

Click Python Download.

The following page will appear in your browser.

  1. Click the Download Python 3.7.0 button. The file named python-3.7.0.exe should start downloading into your standard download folder. This file is about 30 Mb so it might take a while to download fully if you are on a slow internet connection (it took me about 10 seconds over a cable modem).
    The file should appear as

  2. Move this file to a more permanent location, so that you can install Python (and reinstall it easily later, if necessary).
  3. Feel free to explore this webpage further; if you want to just continue the installation, you can terminate the tab browsing this webpage.
  4. Start the Installing instructions directly below. 

Installing

  1. Double-click the icon labeling the file python-3.7.0.exe. An Open File - Security Warning pop-up window will appear.

  2. Click Run. A Python 3.7.0 (32-bit) Setup pop-up window will appear.

    Ensure that the Install launcher for all users (recommended) and the Add Python 3.7 to PATH checkboxes at the bottom are checked.
    If the Python Installer finds an earlier version of Python installed on your computer, the Install Now message may instead appear as Upgrade Now (and the checkboxes will not appear).
  3. Highlight the Install Now (or Upgrade Now) message, and then click it. A User Account Conrol pop-up window will appear, posing the question Do you want the allow the following program to make changes to this computer?

  4. Click the Yes button. A new Python 3.7.0 (32-bit) Setup pop-up window will appear with a Setup Progress message and a progress bar.

    During installation, it will show the various components it is installing and move the progress bar towards completion. Soon, a new Python 3.7.0 (32-bit) Setup pop-up window will appear with a Setup was successfuly message.

  5. Click the Close button.
Python should now be installed.

Verifying

To try to verify installation,
  1. Navigate to the directory C:\Users\Pattis\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37-32 (or to whatever directory Python was installed: see the pop-up window for Installing step 3).
  2. Double-click the icon/file python.exe. The following pop-up window will appear.

    A pop-up window with the title C:\Users\Pattis\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python37-32 appears, and inside the window; on the first line is the text Python 3.7.0 ... (notice that it should also say 32 bit). Inside the window, at the bottom left, is the prompt >>>: type exit() to this prompt and press enter to terminate Python.
    You should keep the file python-3.7.0.exe somewhere on your computer in case you need to reinstall Python (not likely necessary).
    You may now follow the instructions to download and install Java (you should have already installed Java, but if you haven't, it is OK to do so now, so long as you install both Python and Java before you install Eclipse), and then follows the instruction to download and install the Eclipse IDE. Note: you you need to download/install Java even if you are using Eclipse only for Python)
