How about using exploits?

Even if you don’t know how to write your own exploit from scratch, there are ready made ones that you can use against a system.

In this course you will learn how to find vulnerabilities, how to find an exploit for the given vulnerabilities and finally, if required, how to customize the exploit against the given system. To achieve this you will learn the basic usage of common vulnerability assessment tools like Nessus, OpenVAS and Nexpose. To find exploits we will use SearchSploit and Metasploit applications. To learn the process and the usage of these tools we will walk you through some step-by-step examples of usage and customization of exploits.

Join our course and start using exploits.
