i am new here and new to penetration testing. i have always had an interest in computers and hacking and thought that i would like to give this a try. i bought a book from amazon called the basics of hacking and penetration testing by patrick engebretson. i find it quite easy to read and have had some fun practicing with nmap and harvester. i got to the nessus part in chapter 3. i got nesses server online and when i was using it a little box popped up. exactly the same box that pops up when i login asking if i would like the password remembered. this password said in quotes "anonymous" and asked if i would like to keep it. does this mean that i have been hacked. i was a little worried about doing this sort of thing. when i used nessus and did a vulnerability scan i found that there was a windows issue. i cant remember what it said, something about windows sharing the internet connection or something. does that mean that by using a vmware kali linux with nessus installed can make my computer susceptable to attack?
