By Lance Cleghorn

The EC Council identifies five stages of attack may be used to categorize incidences where a network or host has been compromised. Considering that these stages are common to real attacks, they are used by ethical hackers to conduct to penetration testing. An ethical hacker, or white-hat hacker, may use these steps in order or may selectively choose the steps that work best for their particular vulnerability.

Professional Penetration Testing: How to Get Started?

By Francesco Perna

The first approach to penetration testing activities seems like black voodoo arts to anyone who hasn’t ever considerer the computer security problems. The truth is that in these kind of activities no magic art is involved and no supernatural power is necessary in order to proceed. All you need for successful penetration testing is a fully functional “/dev/brain”, very specific technical preparation, strong knowledge of security testing methodologies, a little bit of fantasy and a lot of practice.

SQL Injection, Netcat and Miscellaneous Techniques

By Enrique Sanchez

Internal applications usually are viewed as a lower risk on exploitaability as the number of people able to reach them is smaller thus “lowering the risk” for the application. This means internal applications may contain vulnerabilities that would be considered as “high” or “critical” on an Internet-facing application, but are marked as “medium” or even “low” since ability to leverage a vulnerability from the outside to reach the internal network would require the attacker to exploit multiple levels through “chaining” to get to the internal vulnerable application.

Setting up a Virtual Environment For Testing

By Manlio Frizzi

It’s hard to have enough rack space, power and cooling, as it should be in a datacenter, at home to host physical servers and enterprise storages along with network and fabric switches: the best way to overcome this challenge is to build a virtual-virtual environment on a wellequipped home personal computer. In this article you will find that not all the features will be available because some of those are hardware related. Anyway you will have enough material to test and experiment a lot.
