Advanced Penetration Testing

By: Wil Allsopp

Overview of this book

Today's threats are organized, professionally-run, and very much for-profit. Advanced Penetration Testing?goes beyond Kali Linux and Metasploit and to provide you advanced pen testing for high security networks. This book integrates social engineering, programming, and vulnerability exploits into a multidisciplinary approach for targeting and compromising high security environments. From discovering and creating attack vectors, and moving unseen through a target enterprise, to establishing command and exfiltrating data—even from organizations without a direct Internet connection—this guide contains the crucial techniques that provide a more accurate picture of your system's defense. Custom coding examples use VBA, Windows Scripting Host, C, Java, JavaScript, Flash, and more, with coverage of standard library applications and the use of scanning tools to bypass common defensive measures. By the end of this book, you’ll be in a position to detect threats and defend your high security network.

Curiosity killed the cat, and although no cats were harmed in the writing of this book, there is a reason this saying is a cliché.
