How to Enumerate NetBIOS Shares with NBTScan & Nmap Scripting Engine

NetBIOS is a service that allows for communication over a network and is often used to join a domain and legacy applications. It is an older technology but still used in some environments today. Since it is an unsecured protocol, it can often be a good starting point when attacking a network. Scanning for NetBIOS shares with NBTScan and the Nmap Scripting Engine is a good way to begin. To run through this technique, we'll be using Metasploitable 2, an intentionally vulnerable virtual machine, as our target machine. We will be attacking it with Kali Linux, the go-to distro for hackers and... more
