"A must have for any Pentester!"

What do you like best?

I love the simplicity of the web interface. Makes it very easy to navigate and understand as well as view all features in an elegant UI.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were a wizard or some type of tutorial built in. However, many can easily be found online.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use BeEF mostly for demonstration purposes when showing clients how easy it is for someone to have their system breached and exploited.

"BeEF is a must-have in a Red Team's toolkit"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to setup BeEF and distributing the webpage to hook. In a few minutes I can have malicious pages up and ready for attack. That's less time spent setting up and more time spent exploiting.

What do you dislike?

A downside of BeEF is that it has a very narrow chance of hooking a user. This isn't BeEF's fault, but a problem with the attack vector in general.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

On a Red Team we need every opportunity for exploitation. BeEF is our go-to tool for attacks through the web browser.
