Hi,
I need to check the version of my Backdoor. My Backdoor (rev_http_8080.exe) is located at /var/www/html/evil-files/

So what is the correct command line to check the version of my Backdoor?

Hope to receive your reply soon, thanks so much.

Cool Regards,
Pallas

I don't think there is command for it but maybe you can do a "ls -la " or just use file managers sorting tool to find out when this file was created and then do a little web search to find out during that time which version of metasploit or msfvenom(I'm assuming you created the backdoor using these) was released around that time.

There might be better solutions but only could come up with this solution

The number your circled in the screenshot is the size of the file, are you wanting to know what version the rev_http_8080.exe file is? Can't help you there because that's a Windows executable, I would ask this on the official Kali forums.

@Pallas_L what is your business with this Trojan and how long have you been using Kali?

Hi f33dm3bits,
Ok, I got it, so this is the size of the file, thanks so much for letting me know.

Thanks for your kind intention for wanting to ask this on the official Kali forums.

Isn't here the official Kali forum???

Have a delightful day :D

Cool Regards,

Hi wizardfromoz,

Actually, I'm studying an Ethical Hacking course right now, that's why I learnt how to create a backdoor, my course teaching assistant wanted me to find out the version of the backdoor which I created but I tried many Kali commands but I still couldn't get it so I thought of posting here, someone may know the answer that I'm looking for.

I have been using Kali for about 3 months, it's still new to me.

Have a pleasant day.

Cool Regards,
Pallas

Hi Lord Boltar,

Thanks so much for the link, I think I found something in the File Details, there's this description : DescriptionPE32 executable (GUI) Intel 80386 (stripped to external PDB), for MS Windows, what does PE32 mean? Does it mean its version is 32-bit?

Waiting for your reply soon, thank you.

Cool Regards,
Pallas

The Kali tools are specialized tools for pen-testing and such, even though with GNU/Linux knowledge most can get a long way with such tools but there are just things you know and learn from experience of using such specific tools. So you are more likely to get an answer on the Official Kali forums.

@Pallas_L - just a bit of friendly advice and no offence to you.

If you had found your way to our Kali Linux Subforum, instead of to Command Line, you would have found near its top a Post from our Administrator, himself a Kali User, providing advice before posting in that subforum.

I'll give you a snippet of text I give people there new to Linux.

In this, the Kali Subforum, did you read the pinned Thread here?

https://linux.org/threads/kali-linux-forum-readme-before-posting-in-here.27151/

... and in there is a link to the Kali website itself, which says in part

Even for experienced Linux users, Kali can pose some challenges.

and

If you are unfamiliar with Linux generally, if you do not have at least a basic level of competence in administering a system, if you are looking for a Linux distribution to use as a learning tool to get to know your way around Linux, or if you want a distro that you can use as a general purpose desktop installation, Kali Linux is probably not what you are looking for.

and ends with

However, if you’re a professional penetration tester or are studying penetration testing with a goal of becoming a certified professional, there’s no better toolkit — at any price — than Kali Linux.

The bottom line here is that you should not be using Kali, nor Parrot until you have some years of experience with Linux.

...so to try to use Kali will just be wasting your time and ours.

I am not trying to be unkind.

At Rob's Thread, it is particularly important to click the links here

FYI: All/most tools that come with Kali are able to be installed on most distributions easily enough... for instance, give katoolin3 a try if you're using a Debian based (Ubuntu, Mint, etc..) system.

From Kali.org:
Should I use Kali Linux?

If you don't you are wasting your money and your time.

Any person or group running a course, whether it be high school, college, university or privately organised, who does not adhere to these principles, is doing you a disservice.

Elsewhere, you have asked for your Membership to be terminated.

You could stick around and learn some of the basics of Linux, because from the questions you have asked here, you could clearly use the experience. :)
