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.

The Attack

As stated earlier in the chapter, it is preferable to know in as much detail and with as much forethought as possible exactly what you're interested in taking from the target network prior to commencing an engagement. It sounds obvious—firearms schematics—but all that is currently known about the target is that they manufacturer firearms and are heavily invested in CNC technology. There are a finite number of CAD technologies that are suitable for such work and that can export designs compatible with these machines. Knowing what tech (and therefore file extensions and so forth) is in use beforehand will save you time when scouring the infrastructure for data.

This is not as difficult as it sounds. A quick Google search elicits a web page and, buried within a Q&A session about their hand guns designs, there is exactly what you need.
