Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

Looks Interesting who are the people behind it ? Most course on security the trainers names are provided but could not see them anywhere on the site. does anyone know ? as I like to do lot research about the people giving the course before I even think about taking a course.

Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

Looks pretty decent, I would also like to know more about this course and the people behind it. I was reading the information on the site, and whoever developed this course has "7 years of ethical hacking experience".

It looks like Hayabusa should be providing us with a review soon :)

Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

Yep. I'll be setting up a fresh VM (not necessary, but my preference) to watch their vids in and read the pdf's.  Will be reviewing soon!

Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

I'm interested to see what hayabusa has to say about this one.

It's too shady for me. No information about the authors and no 'about us' section. The poor grammar on the site leads me to believe English is not a first language and the course documents would be tough to get through. A domain that was just registered in October (too new) and registered by proxy (poor choice for a business, in my opinion) doesn't sit well with me either. And they have a 'testimonials' section with no testimonials.

I might throw $100 at this one and chance it but there's no way I'd be giving these guys $750, let alone the $1450 they will be asking for shortly.

Also curious as to whether these guys tried to launch a year prior and it didn't go so well...

That throws the '7 years experience' out the window

Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

Just got access to content as a reviewer and the media files are .exe files. Files were posted to mediafire instead of from the ninja-sec.com domain. Also virustotal detected a trojaned backdoor in the lab setup file i checked but I did not do any in depth analysis myself as today is my first day back in the office after 2 weeks vacation and I'm a little busy. I'm waiting on feedback from course author now and will let folks know what I find out. I'd be wary of this until someone can verify this is legit.

Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

I have the files in a dedicated (fully-offlined) VM.  I'm currently awaiting my reg code (the exe's need a reg code, to go against machine ID, before being usable.)

I'll let you know more, as soon as I'm given my key, to begin looking at the materials.

Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

OK thanks Hayabusa. Will see what happens as this moves forward and keep you all posted. I'm also doing this from an isolated VM. :)

Got my codes.  Files are unlocked (and scan clean, for those who asked.)  Will start going through, today.

Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

tturner - if you run into an xp crash when trying to view the vids, along with the codec ninja-sec linked us to, you might also need to download the latest ffdshow_beta7 codec.  That fixed the crashes for me.

Anyway, all, will update after I review further.  ;D

Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

So far it looks legit. Perhaps I was a little over cautious. My apologies to the course author.

<nod>  I won't be 'deep' into it until this evening (work came first today,) but so far, what little I'd checked, at lunchtime, looks legit, as well.

Re: CODENAME: Samurai Skills Course

With something like this, I'm probably the most concerned about plagiarism. I'm curious how original you find the material to be.

The reason they're in a .exe file is because the author wants to protect the course content the best way possible, so he doesn't lose revenue from the course  :) It's a shame it has to be this way, but looking at so many other course providers with their courseware allover the web, I think that may be the reason he chose a locked down executable.
