Getting started with the Social-Engineer Toolkit (SET)

Let's start our introductory recipe about SET, where we will be discussing SET on different platforms.

Getting ready

SET can be downloaded for different platforms from its official website: https://www.trustedsec.com/. It has both the GUI version, which runs through the browser, and the command-line version, which can be executed from the terminal. It comes pre-installed in BackTrack, which will be our platform for discussion in this chapter.

How to do it...

To launch SET on BackTrack, start the terminal window and pass the following path:

root@bt:~# cd /pentest/exploits/set
root@bt:/pentest/exploits/set# ./set
