    Penetration Testing

    Has any one tried out penetrating testing.

    I realize that this is a contentious subject and not a mainstream subject but nonetheless important for detection of malware and the understanding of how exploits are created and spread.

    Techniques used by hackers to devise threats and spread them are extremely complex and understanding this process gets into their mindsets and helps to thwart them

    The Kali Linux distribution has been designed for penetration testing and offensive Security and was born out of the the need for sound defensive security. It contains 300 built in tools.

    Detection and eradication of malware is essential and vigilance needed at all times.

    Are you advertising pentest tools or asking how to pentest?

    Neither,

    I wanted to introduce the topic as a security concept at a basic level and poll members to see whether they might be aware of how security flaws work, the detection of exploits and their eradication.

    cheers, Neil

    I suspect 99% of users have no idea about security flaws apart from they exist - speaking from personal experience. Pentesting would be a completely foreign concept.

    cheers, Paul
