Asalamu alaikum guys my name is Mr robot Ng hacker today gonna show you how to install and use setoolkit social engineering attack set.

What is setoolkit ?

The Social Engineering Toolkit (SET) is an open-source penetration testing framework that focuses on social engineering attacks. It is designed for ethical hackers, security professionals, and penetration testers to assess the security of systems by simulating various social engineering attacks.

SET provides a wide range of tools and attack vectors to conduct social engineering campaigns, including:

(1) Phishing Attacks:
 SET allows users to create phishing campaigns to deceive users into revealing sensitive information such as login credentials, credit card numbers, and more.

(2) Credential Harvesting: 
It can capture login credentials through fake login pages.

(3) Spear Phishing: 
SET supports targeted attacks, where attackers craft tailored phishing emails to specific individuals or organizations.

(4) Website Cloning: 
SET can clone websites to make phishing pages appear identical to legitimate sites.

(5) Payload Generation:
 It assists in generating malicious payloads for exploiting vulnerabilities in systems.

(6) Infectious Media Generator: 
SET can create malicious USB drives, CDs, and DVDs for physical access attacks.

(7) Mass Mailer:
 It can send phishing emails to a large number of targets simultaneously.

(8) Java Applet Attacks: 
SET includes Java Applet attacks to exploit vulnerabilities in Java applications.

(9) Wireless Access Point Attacks: 
SET can create rogue wireless access points to capture credentials from unsuspecting users.


You should have a Linux system (e.g., Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, Kali Linux android userland) up and running.
Python is required for SET, so make sure it's installed on your system.


If you're using Kali Linux, SET is pre-installed. You can skip the installation step.

For other Linux distributions, you can download SET from the official GitHub repository:

$ git clone setoolkit

Change to the SET directory:

$ cd setoolkit

Install the required dependencies:

$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip python3-tk
$ sudo pip3 install -r requirements.txt


To start SET, run the following command:

$ sudo python3

You will see a menu with various options for different social engineering attacks, including phishing, credential harvesting, and more.

Select an attack vector by entering the corresponding number and following the prompts.

SET will guide you through the process of setting up and launching the selected attack.
