Hey guys! This being my first post on this forum, I thought I'd introduce myself. My names Austin as you guys can see
. Basically for the last few weeks I'v really been getting into the field of Pen Testing. I think its kind of my calling, Sence I was around 14 (Im 17 atm) years old I'v always been interested in exploiting things. I started out exploiting online gaming systems via Winsock connections, ever sence then I'v just loved this area in computing. Right now im taking the CNNA class and Im taking a class on Ethical Hacking.. and thats where my problem is at..
Basically im going through the Linux+ and Network+ curiculum at the moment and the teacher that is "teaching" us Network Security is relying on us to pretty much teach ourselves sence he doesnt even know enough about it himself to teach it.
Me being the Sub-Geek I am im pretty much the go to guy for this information, and I bearly have a grasp on the concepts. I'v been working my way around DVL and BackTrack3 and it is very overwelming.
Not necessarily the tools included in these distro's but lack of information documenting them. I do ALOT of research on my own and I am even having trouble finding free information on the whole Ethical Hacking scene.
I would love it if you guys could give me a push in the right direction..
Maybe some good sites documenting Metasploit and such?
Really any advice is good at the moment.
Sorry for this being so long, thanks for reading.
