Ghost Framework is an Android post-exploitation framework that is used or working with the Android Debug Bridge to access and control android devices remotely . Ghost Framework gives you the power and convenience of remote Android device administration.
About Ghost Framework:
This Framework is easy to use any Android Devices which have turn on the debug bridge in the “Developer options”. We can access it remotely with full access. How we can turn on the debug bridge, you have to follow the following video. So in this article, we can learn how to install the Ghost Framework in Kali Linux. And how to use it in Kali Linux without any error.
Download the Framework
So, first of all, we have to clone the Ghost Framework from GitHub by using the following command:
git clone https://github.com/entynetproject/ghost.git
Now our framework is downloaded in the home directory of our login user. So we have to go to the ghost directory using cd (Change Directory) command.
Now you can list the files using ls (list computer files) command.
So now we have to install the Ghost using install.sh, but first we have to change the permission of this file by using chmod (change mode) command.
$ sudo chmod +x install.sh
After run this command we have to enter the password because we used sudo command here.
Now we have to install the install.sh script using this command.
$ sudo ./install.sh
Now after running this command it is automatically installing all dependencies.
The installation of dependencies depends on your internet speed.
After installing Framework you have to run the following command to run the Ghost in the terminal.
$ sudo ghost

Here you can see all command with description. So now we have to connect the android device so we can take the control. So if you want to use your device so you have to open the port 5555 in your device. Or you can use Shodan search engine to find the vulnerable Android Device with IP address. In Shodan, we have to find the vulnerable Android Device by searching this word “Android Debug Bridge“, as we have shown here:
Here you can see the result we get 6K+ search result that means these devices are vulnerable for ghost and all the devices connected with the internet. You can get any IP address and use the connect command to connect with the device.
Now we are connected with this device you can see below:
Here we can see the result of this command, we are connected with this IP address. Now we can control android devices remotely. Now here using help command we can see how many commands we can run after connecting the vulnerable android device.
