Second, I want to thank Rotchy Barker, who was my first trading mentor. He took me into his Page How the Turtle W. Metasploit Penetration Testing Cookbook aims at helping the readers in mastering one The exploit works by creating a malicious PDF file which, the second issue that the antivirus program is running as a service on the target machine. Know how hackers behave to stop them! This cookbook provides many recipes for penetration testing using Metasploit and virtual machines.
This book begins with introducing you to the concepts of penetration testing and will give you a strong foundation in pentesting. The bootcamp approach will enable you to follow along with what you are learning and you will be able to utlize this information in your own daily life penetration tests.
You will also understand how to scan for vulnerability and metasploit. This book will also teach you the importance of clearing up your tracks that you leave behind after the penetration test and will show you how to build a report from all the data obtained from the penetration test.
In totality, this book will equip you with step-by-step instruction through rigorous tasks, Practical callouts, and assignments to reinforce your understanding of Penetration testing. Crack passwords and wireless network keys with brute-forcing and wordlists. Test web applications for vulnerabilities. Although it is technically not a true XSS vulnerability due to the fact it relies on socially engineering a user into executing code rather than a flaw in the affected website allowing an attacker to do so, it still poses the same risks as a regular XSS vulnerability if properly executed.
This makes it extremely hard to detect or sanitize within the websites application logic.
An example is rebalancing unclosed quotation marks or even adding quotation marks to unquoted parameters on parameters to CSS font-family.
Exploit examples[ edit ] Attackers intending to exploit cross-site scripting vulnerabilities must approach each class of vulnerability differently. For each class, a specific attack vector is described here. The names below are technical terms, taken from the Alice-and-Bob cast of characters commonly used in computer security.
The Browser Exploitation Framework could be used to attack the web site and the user's local environment. Non-persistent[ edit ] Alice often visits a particular website, which is hosted by Bob. When a user logs in, the browser keeps an Authorization Cookie, which looks like some garbage characters, so both computers client and server have a record that she's logged in.
Mallory observes that Bob's website contains a reflected XSS vulnerability: When she visits the Search page, she inputs a search term in the search box and clicks the submit button. The page displays " not found," along with an error message with the text 'xss'.
She loves puppies and clicks on the link. It goes to Bob's website to search, doesn't find anything, and displays "puppies not found" but right in the middle, the script tag runs it is invisible on the screen and loads and runs Mallory's program authstealer.
Alice forgets about it. The authstealer. It grabs a copy of Alice's Authorization Cookie and sends it to Mallory's server, where Mallory retrieves it. Mallory now puts Alice's Authorization Cookie into her browser as if it were her own. She then goes to Bob's site and is now logged in as Alice. Now that she's in, Mallory goes to the Billing section of the website and looks up Alice's credit card number and grabs a copy.
Then she goes and changes her password so Alice can't even log in anymore. She decides to take it a step further and sends a similarly crafted link to Bob himself, thus gaining administrator privileges to Bob's website. Several things could have been done to mitigate this attack: The search input could have been sanitized which would include proper encoding checking.
The web server could be set to redirect invalid requests.
The web server could detect a simultaneous login and invalidate the sessions. The web server could detect a simultaneous login from two different IP addresses and invalidate the sessions. The website could display only the last few digits of a previously used credit card.
The website could require users to enter their passwords again before changing their registration information. The website could enact various aspects of the Content Security Policy.

Metasploit software helps security and IT professionals identify security issues, verify vulnerability mitigations, and manage expert-driven security assessments. Capabilities include smart exploitation, password auditing, web application scanning, and social engineering. Teams can collaborate in Metasploit and present their findings in consolidated reports.
The goal of the software is to provide a clear understanding of the critical vulnerabilities in any environment and to manage those risks. Metasploit Penetration Testing Cookbook, Second Edition contains chapters that are logically arranged with an increasing level of complexity and thoroughly covers some aspects of Metasploit, ranging from pre-exploitation to the post-exploitation phase.
This book is an update from version 4. It covers the detailed penetration testing techniques for different specializations like wireless networks, VOIP systems, and the cloud. Metasploit Penetration Testing Cookbook, Second Edition covers a number of topics which were not part of the first edition.
You will learn how to penetrate an operating system Windows 8 penetration testing to the penetration of a wireless network, VoIP network, and then to cloud. The book starts with the basics, such as gathering information about your target, and then develops to cover advanced topics like building your own framework scripts and modules.
The book goes deep into operating-systems-based penetration testing techniques and moves ahead with client-based exploitation methodologies. In the post-exploitation phase, it covers meterpreter, antivirus bypass, ruby wonders, exploit building, porting exploits to the framework, and penetration testing, while dealing with VOIP, wireless networks, and cloud computing. This book will help readers to think from a hacker's perspective to dig out the flaws in target networks and also to leverage the powers of Metasploit to compromise them.
It will take your penetration skills to the next level. She has presented many research papers at both national and international conferences. Her main areas of interest are ethical hacking and ad hoc networking. Abhinav Singh is a well-known information security researcher.
