EaST – Open Source Exploits and Security Tools Framework

by Unallocated Author

East is a Python based security framework toolkit. It acts as a HTTP server and contains a wide range of different exploits and modules to use. It combines an advanced penetration testing framework with a simple to use interface, which even a beginner can use.

Installing EaST

Installation is pretty straightforward, clone the github repository.

git clone https://github.com/C0reL0ader/EaST.gi

It just requires python to run the server, nothing more.

Running EaST

Type this command to run the server.

cd East/
python start.py [-p PORT] [--all-interfaces]

The service is up and running at localhost:80. Open a browser and go to the address.

As you can see, the interface is pretty simple. In the left we have folders with modules we can use and also a window with information for every module you choose. In the right you have a box to type your target’s address and port you want to attack. You can also check their database with all the latest exploits here.

Let’s use it to attack a vulnerable server. First, type the target’s ip in the target box. Then, go to the Utilities folder and run the port_scanner module to see the open ports.


All you have to do after that is to check the available exploits and choose the right one for your target. From web to buffer overflows, there’s a good chance to find something interesting there.

What Bunny rating does it get?

EaST is a very good exploitation framework. You can learn and improve your IT knowledge in system attacks, improvement and protection. It easily gets a 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.
