Ethical Hacking (Part 12): Browser Exploitation Framework (BeEF)

Out of all the attacks I’ve covered in my articles so far, I think this is one of my worst. I don’t like it because it is so difficult to prevent. The other attacks I’ve shown you have a light at the end of beef linux error tunnel in the sense if you know what the attack is you can put measures in place to prevent it. The only way I know of to stop this attack is to make the browsing experience extremely limited and restricting for users and that isn’t much fun.

Browser Exploitation Framework (BeEF)

BeEF comes bundled with Kali Linux. I’m going to assume you have access to a Kali Linux instance and if not I recommend setting it up by following my other article, “Ethical Hacking (Part 2): Introducing Kali Linux”. You can also download it here on other Linux variants.

The location of BeEF in Kali Linux is, “/usr/share/beef-xss”.

[email protected]:~# cd /usr/share/beef-xss
[email protected]:/usr/share/beef-xss#

We will need to configure BeEF before we are able to use it. Please open, “/usr/share/beef-xss/config.yaml” which is a symbolic link back to “/etc/beef-xss/config.yaml”.

[email protected]:/usr/share/beef-xss# vi /etc/beef-xss/config.yaml

Please locate the “credentials” section of the configuration.

user: "beef"
passwd: "beef"

These are the credentials we will use to access the framework GUI. BeEF won’t start unless you change these, beef linux error. I recommend changing both the username and password to something non-standard and strong.

Please locate the “http” section of the configuration.

debug: false #Thin::Logging.debug, very verbose. Prints also full exception stack trace.
beef linux error host: ""
port: "3000"

You need to set the host IP of your Kali Linux server where the hacked browser will connect back to. In my case I’m going to set the host to, “”.

Now run BeEF…
