Availability: Ready to download

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 th 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 4.0 to version 4.5. 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. What you will learn from this book Set up a complete penetration testing environment using Metasploit and virtual machines Discover how to penetration test popular operating systems such as Windows 8 Get familiar with penetration testing based on client side exploitation techniques with detailed analysis of vulnerabilities and codes Build and analyze meterpreter scripts in Ruby Learn penetration testing in VOIP, WLAN, and the cloud from start to finish including information gathering, vulnerability assessment, exploitation, and privilege escalation Make the most of the exclusive coverage of antivirus bypassing techniques using Metasploit Work with BBQSQL to analyze the stored results of the database Approach This book follows a Cookbook style with recipes explaining the steps for penetration testing with WLAN, VOIP, and even cloud computing. There is plenty of code and commands used to make your learning curve easy and quick.

    This book offers a broad coverage on how network based pen-testing which would serve as a good reference for beginners. Some of the tips and references provided are useful. However, there are some assumptions are inaccurate which you may need to be cautious. E.g 1) DLL injection is not the same as DLL hijacking; and 2) with the presence of AV it does not mean that all malwares could be detected and deleted.

    Second Edition 2013 is a bit dated now, but good for a quick scan of the concepts and capabilities.

    The Metasploit framework is a very powerful set of tools in the right hands. This second edition of the Penetration Testing Cookbook is a timely update to Abhinav Singh's first edition. From configuring your environment whether in Windows, Linux (Ubuntu specifically), kali, or a virtual machine, Singh goes on to expand beyond the basic usage of the Metasploit framework and explores additional tools for port scanning, exploiting browser and/or OS vulnerabilities, and SQL injection.

This second edition of the Penetration Testing Cookbook is a timely update to Abhinav Singh's first edition. From configuring your environment whether in Windows, Linux (Ubuntu specifically), kali, or a virtual machine, Singh goes on to expand beyond the basic usage of the Metasploit framework and explores additional tools for port scanning, exploiting browser and/or OS vulnerabilities, and SQL injection. Singh also explores wireless and voice over IP pen testing and social engineering. The wireless and VoIP chapters were pretty interesting, but I found the chapter on social engineering a bit weak and would recommend a book dedicated to that topic in order to really learn more about it. But the core material in this book - using the Metasploit framework to pen test via a number of different attack vectors - is satisfactory. Not ground-breaking, and you may want to start with a more introductory book (or one that is not in the cookbook format) on the Metasploit framework before diving into this cookbook, but if you prefer to jump in and get your hands dirty right away, this is the book for you. Overall, I would recommend this book to every security professional as it has too much content

    Metasploit has gained a lot of popularity since last couple of years. This is simply because of its proven ability to help the security testers in the process of penetration testing and exploitation. The book titled "Metasploit Penetration Testing Cookbook, Second Edition" completely guides the user from basics to advance of Metasploit Framework. It does so following the 'recipe' style of writing giving crisp understanding of all concepts with suitable illustrations and references.
