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.
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.
Type this command to run the server.
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.
