There are numerous freely available tools that allow hackers to gather a considerable amount of information about organizations via their websites. In this assignment, you will use some of these tools.
Select a Middle Eastern organization with a website. Utilize the WHOIS command in the DOS terminal and record the data found. Things to consider would be:
The physical location, email addresses of contacts shown, applicable phone numbers, and all name servers.
NSLookup command for IP addresses and MX records
Trace route information
DNS zone transfer information records
Ping sweeps, UDP scans, operating system identification, etc.
All of this can be performed on a DOS window or terminal. After performing the above footprinting methods, write a short paper discussing how these techniques would be used by a hacker to gain information access to the network.
