In this tutorial we are going to learn what is Cisco Global Exploiter and how to test it.
Cisco Global Exploiter (CGE), is an advanced, simple and fast security testing tool / exploit engine, that is able to exploit 14 vulnerabilities in disparate Cisco switches and routers. CGE is command-line driven perl script which has a simple and easy to use front-end.
However, be careful while testing in a live environment as some of them can crash the Cisco devise. For example, option can stop the services.
In this case, we will test the testing machine with IP 192.168.1.102 and the protocol HTTP.
The command will be
#bed –s HTTP –t 192.168.1.102
This is all what is Cisco Global Exploiter (CGE) and how to test it with example.
