PacktPub – Offensive Hacking Unfolded – Become a Pro Pentester [Video] [FCO]
In this course, you will learn the very basics of installing VMware and what to do to create the virtual environment that contains both our hacker machine and the target labs. Learn how to do advanced information gathering and reconnaissance in both active and passive modes as well as get the required templates and guides that will explain to you how to store the data you have gathered in a professional way.
After that, we will take the data that was gathered in the previous section and use it to conduct vulnerability assessments. Moving ahead, we will also discuss how to use the Metasploit framework to ease the process of exploitation without neglecting the way to exploit things manually.
Next, we will see how to beat the security of custom websites having specific vulnerabilities such as SQL injection, Cross Site Scripting (XSS), unrestricted file uploads, command injection, and brute forcing. Learn post exploitation with and without Metasploit framework as well as know many manual methods to do privilege escalation on a target, to move from standard user access to a full root/admin level shell. In the last and final section of the course, we will focus on how to write a report in a professional format.
By the end of the course, you will be able to perform professional penetration testing in real life.
