Hack a VPS server, how do they do it ?
Before you start reading read about what a VPS (Virtual Private Server) is : What is a VPS Server (or Virtual Dedicated Server) ?
To summarize very briefly the method, the person who wants to steal VPS servers that are accessible by,
VNC (Virtual Network Computing – software that allows you to remotely manage your servers),
will scan using a tool, a row of IP addresses with port 3389 (VNC connection port).
Once the servers are found and corresponding to the use of VNC, an attack by Bruteforce is,
then practiced, like most people who use very simple passwords,
so it’s very simple for these thieves!
The correct password found, so the server is in the hands of the malandrine !
The hacking method for gain access on a VPS under VNC or RDP :
First of all, the pirate equips himself with utility software, these are the following:
The utility that will scan the IP address ranges to find VNC servers KportScan and the last utility Dubrute that will allow the Brute-force method to be used on the vulnerable machine, you can download the pack of both utilities by clicking on the button below, the archive password will be “thankyou” without the quotation marks :
Once these utilities are in his possession, the hacker will first find an IP address row that corresponds to the desired country, thanks to this site :
He will choose the desired country by selecting the IP Range option :
Once this is done, the IP address blocks appear, so it will select the block that corresponds to it :
After that, it starts the utility that scans IP addresses by clicking on Load ranges to add its block (s) of IP addresses :
It selects the number of Threads (requests) with the VNC port (3389) and starts the Scan :
Once finished, it just needs to save its findings using the same utility in a text file, which it will re-import into Dubrute :
And finally it configures the attack by Brute-Force, selecting the number of threads :
Once he has clicked on “OK”, the attack will be launched on the targeted machines, if the hacker is good, he will launch the attacks on a VPS server that he will own (or not).
It will also use, for example, a file containing the possible passwords :
Text file containing the most frequently used passwords.
How to protect yourself from VPS Hacking ?
Simply by using an iptables variable.
This Linux kernel firewall will protect you by using this variable,
it will only allow your IP addresses to connect or send a PING request to your server :
sudo iptables -I INPUT -p tcp -s IPADRESSEOFYOURSERVER –dport 5901 -j ACCEPT
sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s 0.0.0.0.0/0 –dport 5901 -j DROP
