If a hacker can gain a foothold in the network, he compromises additional systems and tries to gain privileges. A Pass the Hash attack is an exploit in which an attacker steals a hashed user credential and, without breaking it, uses it to trick an authentication system into creating a new authentication session on the same network. In this article, we will introduce Passing the Hash and then you will learn How to Install Passing-the-Hash on Kali Linux. You can see the packages available in Eldernode if you want to purchase Linux VPS server.
Tutorial Install Passing-the-Hash on Kali Linux
Introduction to Passing-the-Hash
A Pass the Hash (PtH) attack is a technique in which an attacker receives a password hash (as opposed to password characters) and passes it to other network systems for authentication and possible lateral access. By moving laterally between devices and accounts, attackers can use Pass the Hash to gain the appropriate credentials to eventually elevate their domain privileges and gain access to more influential systems such as the administrator account on a domain controller. In hash attacks, a remote software program such as malware is used. Pass the Hash attacks can occur on Linux, Unix and other platforms, but are most common on Windows systems.
Installing Passing-the-Hash on Kali Linux
You can install Passing the Hash with the following command:
sudo apt install passing-the-hash
Next we will check how to install the modified versions of PtH that are installed as executable files.
How to Install PtH-curl on Kali Linux

How to Install PtH-net on Kali Linux
You can install PtH-net by running the command below:
How to Install PtH-rpcclient on Kali Linux
Use the following command to install PtH-rpcclient:
How to Install PtH-smbclient on Kali Linux

How to Install PtH-wmic on Kali Linux
You can use the command below to install PtH-wmic:
How to install PtH-wmis on Kali Linux
You can install PtH-wmis using the following command:
1--> Identity theft
2--> Data breaches
3--> Modify critical files
4--> Ransomware attacks
5--> Taking the network offline
6--> Start downloading malware
7--> Driving traffic to malicious sites
8--> Locking users out of their accounts
9--> Disclosure of sensitive and proprietary information online
1--> Least privilege security model: Reducing attacker access by limiting domains.
2--> Password management solutions: Compress the time window during which the stolen hash is valid. Automate password rotation that occurs after each privileged session.
3--> Separation of privileges: Reduction of administrator accounts by separating different types of privileged and unauthorized accounts.
In this article, we introduced PtH, which in this technique attackers receives a hashed password and sends it to other network systems for authentication and possible side access. You also learned How to Install Passing-the-Hash on Kali Linux and we also looked at installing modified versions of PtH.
