This book is totally about cybersecurity and hacking and this is mainly for Entrepreneurs and normal citizens. You can learn to become a hacker and also things about cybersecurity. In today’s date hacking cases and cyber threats are increasing rapidly but people don’t know how to save themselves from cyber crimes and the latest cyber threats. New threats and new flaws are introduced every day but if you are updated with the latest one and you have the knowledge of cybersecurity then you will be safe.
–Crack passwords and wireless network keys with brute-forcing and wordlists
–Test web applications for vulnerabilities
–Use the Metasploit Framework to launch exploits and write your own Metasploit modules
–Automate social-engineering attacks
–Bypass antivirus software
–Turn access to one machine into total control of the enterprise in the post-exploitation phase You’ll even explore writing your own exploits. Then it’s on to mobile hacking—Weidman’s particular area of research—with her tool, the Smartphone Pentest Framework.
Just as a professional athlete doesn’t show up without a solid game plan, ethical hackers, IT professionals, and security researchers should not be unprepared, either. The Hacker Playbook provides them their own game plans. Written by a longtime security professional and CEO of Secure Planet, LLC, this step-by-step guide to the “game” of penetration hacking features hands-on examples and helpful advice from the top of the field.
The highly successful security book returns with a new edition, completely updated Web applications are the front door to most organizations, exposing them to attacks that may disclose personal information, execute fraudulent transactions, or compromise ordinary users. This practical book has been completely updated and revised to discuss the latest step-by-step techniques for attacking and defending the range of ever-evolving web applications. You’ll explore the various new technologies employed in web applications that have appeared since the first edition and review the new attack techniques that have been developed, particularly in relation to the client side.
Rather than merely showing how to run existing exploits, author Jon Erickson explains how arcane hacking techniques actually work. To share the art and science of hacking in a way that is accessible to everyone, Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition introduces the fundamentals of C programming from a hacker’s perspective. Use it to follow along with the book’s examples as you fill gaps in your knowledge and explore hacking techniques on your own. Get your hands dirty debugging code, overflowing buffers, hijacking network communications, bypassing protections, exploiting cryptographic weaknesses, and perhaps even inventing new exploits.
Learn 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
