eLearnSecurity Launches Version 2 of Penetration Testing eXtreme
On Tuesday, June 23, eLearnSecurity released the latest version of Penetration Testing Extreme, our most advanced pentesting course. We overhauled PTXv2 to address modern TTPs, especially regarding Active Directory attacks. Our course designers have also created 100+ hands-on red teaming challenges spread across 11+ attack scenarios in our industry leading labs.
So far, the Fingerprinting section of our Pentesting 101 series has shown scans originating from a personal network. That isn’t always ideal in some situations. While following the attack methodologies found in the APT-1 report, Mandiant did not talk about APT-1 doing any type of scanning or fingerprinting.
Announcing eLearnSecurity’s Red Team Month Discount
We here at eLearnSecurity have been beating the dead horse about cyber security skills shortage for quite a while now. Why? According to CoreSecurity’s 2020 Penetration Testing Report, 47 percent of businesses have not pentested their network.
Since we are trying to paint a picture of the target network, saving the nmap output would help. The command line switch “-oA” will output the results of a nmap scan to XML, a grepable format and plain text like you’d see on the screen.
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.
