Your question is very ‘suspicious’, as you don’t really leave much detail as to WHY you’re hacking it, and motives. Assuming you’re doing this for the proper reasons (ethical ones, as this website would imply 😉 ), you need to either scope out running services and look for vulnerabilities, there, or look for issues with the website (SQL injection, etc…)
Again, however, simply asking “how do I hack a ‘very generic server description’?” seems a bit odd to me…
Customers usually turn to the internet to get information and buy products and services. Towards that end, most organizations have websites.Most websites store valuable information such as credit card numbers, email address and passwords etc. This has made them targets to attackers. Defaced websites can also be used to communicate religious or political ideologies etc.
In this article, we will introduce you to web servers hacking techniques and how you can protect servers from such attacks. http://academy.ehacking.net/
Web servers are often the vector through which hackers mount successful online attacks. Understanding the nature of exploitable risks at this level is essential to properly protecting applications from malicious actors. This course looks at a broad range of risks in web server implementations and more importantly, how you can defend against these being compromised by hackers. This course is part of the Ethical Hacking Series.
