Ethical Hacking - Session 3 - Vulnerability Assessment

  • June 24, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Why ethical hacking?

See: http://nesit.org/why-ethical-hacking/

Vulnerability assesment and Enumeration are the process of discovering flaws in systems and applications which can be leveraged by an attacker. These flaws can range anywhere from host and service misconfiguration, or insecure application design. Although the process used to look for flaws varies and is highly dependent on the particular component being tested, some key principals apply to the process.

Durring this session we'll use various tools to enumerate system, user, group, version information which will be tremendously useful in our exploitation classes in the following classes

Tools covered:
- Metasploit framework.
- Nessus

    Your sentence should read like this:

    Tools covered:
    - Metasploit framework- Does the work for you....
    - Nessus - Doesn't do the exploiting for you, but still does all the discovering of a server for you....

    You don't even need to be smart now adays to hack an enterprise system, makes me feel like years of studying security were for nothing when there's now programs to literally hack for you, I declare[masked] the year of the "Hackers who didn't want to do anything for them selves but still want the credit (looking at everyone EXCEPT the programmers who made this software)

      GUI is well and fine, but for mass consumption it's better to start with CLI. Its not hard, search, use, show option, back. And it makes running your own metasploit modules simple.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
