"The Metasploit Framework makes discovering, exploiting, and sharing vulnerabilities quick and relatively painless. But while Metasploit is used by security professionals everywhere, documentation is lacking and the tool can be hard to grasp for first-time users. Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide fills this gap by teaching you how to harness the Framework, use its many features, and interact with the vibrant community of Metasploit contributors. The authors begin by building a foundation for penetration testing and establishing a fundamental methodology. From there, they explain the Framework's conventions, interfaces, and module system, as they show you how to assess networks with Metasploit by launching simulated attacks. Having mastered the essentials, you'll move on to advanced penetration testing techniques, including network reconnaissance and enumeration, client-side attacks, devastating wireless attacks, and targeted social engineering attacks. Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide willteach you how to: Find and exploit unmaintained, misconfigured, and unpatched systems Perform reconnaissance and find valuable information about your target Bypass anti-virus technologies and circumvent security controls Integrate Nmap, NeXpose, and Nessus with Metasploit to automate discovery Use the Meterpreter shell to launch further attacks from inside the network Harness standalone Metasploit utilities, third-party tools, and plug-ins Learn how to write your own Meterpreter post exploitation modules and scripts You'll even touch on exploit discovery for zero-day research, write a fuzzer, port existing exploits into the Framework, and learn how to cover your tracks. Whether your goal is to make your own networks more secure or to put someone else's to the test, Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide will take you there and beyond"--

Wenn es um die Entwicklung leistungsfähiger und effizienter Hacking-Tools geht, ist Python für die meisten Sicherheitsanalytiker die Sprache der Wahl. Doch wie genau funktioniert das? In dem neuesten Buch von Justin Seitz - dem Autor des Bestsellers »Hacking mit Python« - entdecken Sie Pythons dunkle Seite. Sie entwickeln Netzwerk-Sniffer, manipulieren Pakete, infizieren virtuelle Maschinen, schaffen unsichtbare Trojaner und vieles mehr. Sie lernen praktisch, wie man • einen »Command-and-Control«-Trojaner mittels GitHub schafft • Sandboxing erkennt und gängige Malware-Aufgaben wie Keylogging und Screenshotting automatisiert • Windows-Rechte mittels kreativer Prozesskontrolle ausweitet • offensive Speicherforensik-Tricks nutzt, um Passwort-Hashes abzugreifen und Shellcode in virtuelle Maschinen einzuspeisen • das beliebte Web-Hacking-Tool Burp erweitert • die Windows COM-Automatisierung nutzt, um einen Man-in-the-Middle-Angriff durchzuführen • möglichst unbemerkt Daten aus einem Netzwerk abgreift Eine Reihe von Insider-Techniken und kreativen Aufgaben zeigen Ihnen, wie Sie die Hacks erweitern und eigene Exploits entwickeln können.

A complete pentesting guide facilitating smooth backtracking for working hackers About This Book Conduct network testing, surveillance, pen testing and forensics on MS Windows using Kali Linux Gain a deep understanding of the flaws in web applications and exploit them in a practical manner Pentest Android apps and perform various attacks in the real world using real case studies Who This Book Is For This course is for anyone who wants to learn about security. Basic knowledge of Android programming would be a plus. What You Will Learn Exploit several common Windows network vulnerabilities Recover lost files, investigate successful hacks, and discover hidden data in innocent-looking files Expose vulnerabilities present in web servers and their applications using server-side attacks Use SQL and cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks Check for XSS flaws using the burp suite proxy Acquaint yourself with the fundamental building blocks of Android Apps in the right way Take a look at how your personal data can be stolen by malicious attackers See how developers make mistakes that allow attackers to steal data from phones In Detail The need for penetration testers has grown well over what the IT industry ever anticipated. Running just a vulnerability scanner is no longer an effective method to determine whether a business is truly secure. This learning path will help you develop the most effective penetration testing skills to protect your Windows, web applications, and Android devices. The first module focuses on the Windows platform, which is one of the most common OSes, and managing its security spawned the discipline of IT security. Kali Linux is the premier platform for testing and maintaining Windows security. Employs the most advanced tools and techniques to reproduce the methods used by sophisticated hackers. In this module first,you'll be introduced to Kali's top ten tools and other useful reporting tools. Then, you will find your way around your target network and determine known vulnerabilities so you can exploit a system remotely. You'll not only learn to penetrate in the machine, but will also learn to work with Windows privilege escalations. The second module will help you get to grips with the tools used in Kali Linux 2.0 that relate to web application hacking. You will get to know about scripting and input validation flaws, AJAX, and security issues related to AJAX. You will also use an automated technique called fuzzing so you can identify flaws in a web application. Finally, you'll understand the web application vulnerabilities and the ways they can be exploited. In the last module, you'll get started with Android security. Android, being the platform with the largest consumer base, is the obvious primary target for attackers. You'll begin this journey with the absolute basics and will then slowly gear up to the concepts of Android rooting, application security assessments, malware, infecting APK files, and fuzzing. You'll gain the skills necessary to perform Android application vulnerability assessments and to create an Android pentesting lab. This Learning Path is a blend of content from the following Packt products: Kali Linux 2: Windows Penetration Testing by Wolf Halton and Bo Weaver Web Penetration Testing with Kali Linux, Second Edition by Juned Ahmed Ansari Hacking Android by Srinivasa Rao Kotipalli and Mohammed A. Imran Style and approach This course uses easy-to-understand yet professional language for explaining concepts to test your network's security.
