Following query was sent to me by Nathan about some issues with setoolkit.
Fri, Jul 24, 2015 at 1:40 PM Name: Nathan Comment: I need help with setoolkit. Specifically phishing and site cloning. I did everything I should have, it works on my LAN. but when I send the link to someone outside it takes forever to load and ends up timing out for them. Yes I have done these: -PortForwarded port 80 -Used my external IP -Used a URL shortener (Multiple different ones) Things I probally should NOT have done: -Disabled apache (Cant seem to turn it back on?) Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated :)
- What happens if you try the actual IP address instead of URL shortener? i.e. http://126.96.36.199/somepage.html ? Is your cloned site accessible from Internet at all?
- If apache is not running, how is your web server serving pages?
service apache2 start
- Instead of having URL shortener forward it to your IP directly, register/use those 0.99$ domains and then do a 301/302 redirect or parked domain …
Timeout mostly points to a routing issue, Firewall or misconfigured server.
Either way, use SET responsibly. It’s a Federal Offense if used for scamming and without permission. Also, it is very easy to track someone down for such activities.
