LAB 3 Assignment

It was brought to my attention that the laboratory does not contain information on what you need to do. After trying to contact faculty services, I wasn’t able to get a hold of anyone that could discuss what needed to be done.  As we are discussing footprinting and we have colleague, I have a few things that I would like you all to run.

Install whois on Kali.  You may have issues if this is not part of the repository list. Use the following commands.


This will let you know your repository listing. Ensure that the repository listing has the following inside.

deb kali-rolling main contrib non-free

Run the following commands in terminal.

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

that should allow you to run the WHOIS installation command.

apt-get install whois

Run queries against domains.


whois -h
whois -h *
whois -h .banjo
Run this against a few different websites.  Copy the text from the terminal and store it into a file. Write a one-page summary for how this information could be used to attack a network.

Given the lateness of the hour, I will be giving a full week of extra time on this. Please accept my apologies. I will be working on the next lab to ensure that you guys have it out before it’s due. Thank you for your time and understanding regarding this.
