10 Best CMD Commands Used in Hacking in 2024

CMD is a powerful tool that lets you do almost anything with your Windows 11/10 PC/laptop.

There are common commands like CD and MD, etc., which you probably know so we won’t get into that.

In this article, we have provided the best cmd commands used in hacking.

Before we begin sharing the best CMD commands for hacking, let us learn – how to enable the NetBios.

First, open your Network Connection and right-click, and select Properties.

Then Select TCP/IP and click Properties again. Now Click on Advanced and WINS tab. Select Default for NetBIOS.

Now back to the main Local Area Connection window, select File and Print Sharing for Microsoft Networks, and hit enter.

This is just to make sure you have NetBIOS enabled. We will have some fun with NetBIOS on CMD.

In case you don’t know how to get CMD by clicking the Windows icon at the left-hand bottom of your screen in all Windows versions and click on Start.

Press run from the start, then type “cmd” without quotes.

List Of Best CMD Commands Used In Hacking

Check out the CMD hack code list here which we have compiled from different sources.

1) ping :

This command will allow you to know if the host you pinging is alive, which means if it is up at the time of executing the “ping” command.

ping x.x.x.x (x is the IP address). You can try pinging which belongs to Google


ping www.google.com (www.google.com is the website you want to ping, but you don’t know the IP)

2) nslookup :

The second cmd hacking command has many functionalities. One is for resolving DNS into IP. Lets say you know the website URL but you don’t know its IP but you want to find it out.

Eg. nslookup www.google.com (www.google.com is the website for which you want to find out the IP)

Now, another really nice function of nslookup is to find out IP of specific Mail Severs

nslookup (enter)

set type=mx (enter)

This hacking command will give you the mail server IP of yahoo.com. You can use whatever server you want and if it is listed on DNS, then you get the IP. Simple, isn’t it? You can send a spoofed email to your friends using the IP address of the mail server. You can check the tutorial here for sending a spoofed email.

3) tracert :

This command will give you the hops that a packet will travel to reach its final destination. This command is really helpful if you know the route a packet takes before it goes to the target box.

Code: tracert x.x.x.x (x is the IP address)


tracert www.google.com (www.google.com is the website you don’t know the IP)

4) arp :

Next up on the CMD hack code list, it will show you the ARP table. You can find out if anyone has done arp poisoning in your LAN using this command.

arp -a

5) route :

This command will show you the routing table, gateway, interface and metric. It is pretty simple yet cool cmd commands to look like a hacker

route print

6) ipconfig :

This command will show you a lot of useful things like your IP, Gateway, DNS in use, etc. This command will give all that info but for all networks, you might have it.

ipconfig /all

Also, in case you have a dynamic IP and want to change it, then type…

ipconfig /release (this will release your IP)

ipconfig /renew (this will renew your iP)

7) netstat :

This command code will show you connection stats of all the available networks.



netstat -a (this will show you all the listening ports and connection with DNS names)
netstat -n (this will show you all the open connection with IP addresses)
netstat -an (this will combined both of the above)

net view x.x.x.x or computername (will list the available sharing folders on the target box)

8) netuser:

A rather simple cmd code for to reset Windows User Password without Knowing Old Password.

code: net user yourusername *

Change yourusername with your PC user name and press Enter. Now type the new password.

9) Net View:

This command displays the whole list of resources, computers or domains that are shared by the specified computer.

net view x.x.x.x or computername

10) Tasklist:

last on the CMD hack code list is Tasklist. A command opens up an entire task manager on the command prompt. Users just need to enter tasklist on CMD and they will see the list of all running process.

For eg; If you want to kill PID 1532 process then you can enter the command-
taskkill /PID 1532 /F


Additional CMD commands which will help you in hacking

net use \ipaddressipc$ “” /user:administrator

(this command will allow you to connect to the target as administrator)

Now if you want to connect to the target and browse the entire C drive, then use this command:

net use K: \computernameC$
(this will create a virtual drive on your “my computer” folder)

Please note that this command will only work if the target PC/laptop has not set an Administrator Password.

And last but not least, the “help” command.

whatevercommand /help


whatevercommand /?

This command is very useful in finding what a particular command does, especially if you are a newbie.
