How to install bettercap tool on Linux

Install bettercap tool – Bettercap is used to a man-in-the-middle (MitM) attack that allows an attacker to intercept communications between network devices. The working principle of the attack is as follows:

1. The attacker must have access to the network. They analyze the network to find the IP addresses of at least two devices-such as workstations and routers.

2. Attackers use spoofing tools such as Arpspoof or Driftnet to send fake ARP responses.

3. The solid responses market it that the best MAC deal with for each IP address, belonging to the router and computing device, is the attacker’s MAC deal with. This fools each router and computing device to connect with the attacker’s machine, in preference to each other.

4. The two devices update their ARP cache entries and then communicate with the attacker instead of directly communicating with each other.

5. The attacker is now secretly in the middle of all communications

-autostart string09.00 - 10.00Comma separated list of modules to auto start. (default "events.stream")
-caplet stringRead commands from this file and execute them in the interactive session.
-caplets-path stringSpecify an alternative base path for caplets.
-cpu-profile fileWrite cpu profile file.
-debugPrint debug messages.
-env-file stringLoad environment variables from this file if found, set to empty to disable environment persistence.
-eval stringRun one or more commands separated by ; in the interactive session, used to set variables via command line.
-gateway-override stringUse the provided IP address instead of the default gateway. If not specified or invalid, the default gateway will be used.
-iface stringNetwork interface to bind to, if empty the default interface will be auto selected.
-mem-profile fileWrite memory profile to file.
-no-colorsDisable output color effects.
-no-historyDisable interactive session history file.
-pcap-buf-size intPCAP buffer size, leave to 0 for the default value. (default -1)
-script stringLoad a session script.
-silentSuppress all logs which are not errors.
-versionPrint the version and exit.

If you need to run a Bettercap tool, type the below command on your Linux terminal

install bettercap

Now type the “help” command, so you can see all options and modules

Select module

Already I spoke to you more than 30 modules are there in the Bettercap tool. now we are going to see how select those modules for attack

You can choose any module but at my convenience, I choose the first module. That’s called “any.proxy

					any.proxy on
choose bettercap module

After that execute the “help” command on the Bettercap terminal to know the usage of the selected module

					help any.proxy
usage of module
