Read Time3 Minutes, 29 Seconds

welcome to hacking a rise on this fine Sunday i am the one and only laughingman and in this post im going to show you how to set up empire on kali linux
so lets get stuck in

What is Empire

Empire is a post-exploitation framework that includes a pure-PowerShell2.0 Windows agent, and a pure Python 2.6/2.7 Linux/OS X agent. It is the merge of the previous PowerShell Empire and Python EmPyre projects. The framework offers cryptologically-secure communications and a flexible architecture. On the PowerShell side, Empire implements the ability to run PowerShell agents without needing powershell.exe, rapidly deployable post-exploitation modules ranging from key loggers to Mimikatz, and adaptable communications to evade network detection, all wrapped up in a usability-focused framework. PowerShell Empire premiered at BSidesLV in 2015 and Python EmPyre premeiered at HackMiami 2016.

Empire relies heavily on the work from several other projects for its underlying functionality. We have tried to call out a few of those people we’ve interacted with heavily here and have included author/reference link information in the source of each Empire module as appropriate. If we have failed to improperly cite existing or prior work, please let us know.

Empire is developed by @harmj0y, @sixdub, @enigma0x3, rvrsh3ll, @killswitch_gui, and @xorrior.

Installing empire

Open a terminal and type git clone

now we type cd Empire then ls then cd setup then ls then chmod +x then ./ with for it to install mite take some time

Right lads we have the requirements installed never hurts to be on the safe side i always run pip3 install -r requirements.txt agen with for it to install

Right now lads type cd .. to go back and then chmod +x empire and then ./empire

Right as u see there 285 modules in this framework lets have a look at help first

so to view the modules type usemodule then the tab button in the key bored

To use the modules just type usemodule powershell/collection/keylogger for a example

there we can set are settings

now lets more on to listeners so type back to go back to the main menu of Empire and then type listeners this bring up the active listeners

now type help for listners commands

agents – Will allow you to jump to agents menu.
back & main – Will take you back to the main menu.
exit – Will exit from Empire.
help – Will display help menu as shown in the above image.
info – Will display information about the active listener.
kill – Will kill a particular listener.
launcher – Used to generate an initial launcher for a listener.
list – Will list all the active listeners.
usestager – Used to use a stager (we will see below what exactly is a stager).
uselistener – Used to start a listener module.

now we wanna use a meterpreter type uselistener meterpreter and then info

since by default the listener is set to local ip you wanna attack on wan u need forward the right ports or use ngrok or serveo

two set the host u frist need to clear the defalt one by typeing unset Host
