Book: Metasploit: A Penetration Testers Guide (Jul, '11)

Wow, just after I noticed that basics of hacking book, I noticed this one coming out by several of the OffSec guys. Will certainly be picking up a copy!

Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide
By: David Kennedy, Jim O'Gorman, Devon Kearns, Mati Aharoni

Amazon.com

No Starch Press

he Metasploit Framework makes discovering, exploiting, and sharing vulnerabilities quick and relatively painless. But while Metasploit is used by security professionals everywhere, documentation is lacking and the tool can be hard to grasp for first-time users. Metasploit: A Penetration Tester's Guide fills this gap by teaching you how to harness the Framework, use its many features, and interact with the vibrant community of Metasploit contributors.

The authors begin by building a foundation for penetration testing and establishing a fundamental methodology. From there, they explain the Framework's conventions, interfaces, and module system, as they show you how to assess networks with Metasploit by launching simulated attacks. Having mastered the essentials, you'll move on to advanced penetration testing techniques, including network reconnaissance and enumeration, client-side attacks, devastating wireless attacks, and targeted social engineering attacks.

Being that both muts and R3l1k are authoring, should be a good read.  Thanks, BillV, for the info.

I will be getting this one too. I talked with muts (Mahti Aharoni) quite a few times when I took the OSCP course and he really knows his stuff. I hope the book is as good as the course was.

LOL... Yeah, I know.  Well, we KNOW he won't beat out the course, with a book, else he'd lose a ton of $$.  :P  But I'm pretty sure it'll be a great one, regardless!

All of you might want to cancel your Amazon order and order direct from the publisher. After the 40% discount, the book is the same price plus you get an EBook version of it as well :)

cd1zz beat me to it :-P  Just pre-ordered it from nostarch.com.  I figured the ebook link would be sent via email or be available via the website once the book was released, but nope - I got the link to download it immediately upon pressing "submit order."  Perusing through it already!
