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 more » 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.
