Malware and Web Application Security and Phishing OH MY!
eLearnSecurity Launches Malware Analysis Professional Course
eLearnSecurity officially launched our latest cyber security training course, Malware Analysis Professional (MAP) on May 19. As malware continues to plague modern industry, many organizations struggle to comprehend the effects of an attack, where the vulnerability started and the consequences of such a breach.
So far in the introduction to penetration testing series of articles, we have covered non-intrusive ways of gathering intelligence on a target network. Using Technical and Human OSINT helped create a picture of the target network that is subject to a penetration test through unobtrusive means.
eLearnSecurity sat down with Stephanie Ihezukwu, known online as Steph and Sec. She serves as a Lead for WoSEC Houston and served as lead for WISP at last year’s DefCon. She speaks at security conferences on various topics. She co-hosts a “happy hour” inspired podcast called Coolest Nerds in the Room, where she leads conversations based on the lives of people in tech.
As part of eLearnSecurity’s commitment to reaching out and building community, we are pleased to announce a partnership with VeteranSec, a non-profit group that helps veterans transition from military life to the private sector. VetSec provides information technology and cyber security training to its members, many of whom began their training in the military.

eLearnSecurity’s guide to penetration testing fundamentals continues with more information on human OSINT
Google and file searches on a website are good ways to accomplish manual Human OSINT. However, most penetration testers like automation. There is a tool called “Maltego” that automates many of the search processes one would use on multiple search engines and social media platforms.
