BLACKEYE – Open Source LAN Phishing Tool for Penetration Testing

by Unallocated Author

BLACKEYE is a LAN phishing tool that can clone more than 30 networks templates to generate the phishing pages. Some of these networks include Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Paypal, Shopify, eBay, Cryptocurrency, Twitter, Facebook, Github, Snapchat, and Linkedin. Besides, generating templates of these networks, BLACKEYE also offers a custom template option to generate custom phishing page.

BLACKEYE Installation

BLACKEYE can be cloned from Github using the following command.

git clone https://github.com/thelinuxchoice/blackeye

BLACKEYE tool can be set into action by running the blackeye.sh file in the terminal. Navigate to the blackeye folder to run the file using the following command.

cd blackeye
bash blackeye.sh

The command opens all the template options as shown in the following screenshot.

Select any template by selecting its sequence number.  BLACKEYE requires the IP address to generate the payload. The tool asks for the IP address to be cloned as a link. The default IP address is automatically fetched by the tool. The tool uses a default IP address if no other IP address is provided.  Share the IP with the target using any social engineering technique.

When the user clicks on the link, victim IP address and browser information is shared on the host machine. If victim enters any secret credentials on the cloned page, the information is passed on to the host machine through BLACKEYE server.

For instance, we can use Google template by typing its sequence # 6. The tool asks for IP address to generate the phishing link. Following the instructions generates the phishing link to be shared with the victim.

When user opens the link, the Google login page appears as shown in the following screenshot.

If the user enters the credentials, the secret data appears in BLACKEYE terminal window as shown below.

We can also set a custom phishing page by selecting the custom template option. The custom template allows setting up custom text to lure the victim. For instance, we can set a page asking a victim to confirm their wifi key in order to perform some updates.

What Bunny rating does it get?

BLACKEYE is a simple phishing tool that automatically generates phishing pages. However, the attack can only be performed on LAN users.So, I’m giving it 4 out of 5 bunnies.

The _ga is asssociated with Google Universal Analytics - which is a significant update to Google's more commonly used analytics service. This cookie is used to distinguish unique users by assigning a randomly generated number as a client identifier. It is included in each page request in a site and used to calculate visitor, session and campaign data for the sites analytics reports. By default it is set to expire after 2 years, although this is customisable by website owners.

The _gat global object is used to create and retrieve tracker objects, from which all other methods are invoked. Therefore the methods in this list should be run only off a tracker object created using the _gat global variable. All other methods should be called using the _gaq global object for asynchronous tracking.

_gid works as a user navigates between web pages, they can use the gtag.js tagging library to record information about the page the user has seen (for example, the page's URL) in Google Analytics. The gtag.js tagging library uses HTTP Cookies to "remember" the user's previous interactions with the web pages.
