Where Can I Hack

I just downloaded bt 5 but I am pretty clueless about what to do.
However I have downloaded some BT manuals off the internet.
i am ccna certified.
Any ideas on how I can progress?
Thanks

Re: Where Can I Hack

Welcome!

Have a look around the forums here, for posts about the live distros (such as DE-ICE, metasploitable, etc - there are MANY threads about them) and begin learning and practicing with those.

Also look into books on building labs, such as:

to give you further ideas.

Thanks for suggesting my book!  :)

Here's a link to the de-ice VM images. There is also a video on setting up a lab on the page as well:

Well, it IS useful, and I recommend it to a lot of folks I know, as a starting point for their labs.   ;)  BTW, glad you're doing better, and good to see more of you, on here, again, Thomas!

Re: Where Can I Hack

+1 for Thomas/Grendel's book: Professional Penetration Testing

I believe it is the only book on my self that I have read cover to cover (well, almost). It's an excellent book and I recommend it to.

This book got me started, so create job Thomas. I am considering your hacking dojo course later this year just because I liked your book!

Thanks - yeah, feeling much better (other than the local carrier monkeys (kids) bringing home the plague...er flu all the time now)!

Re: Where Can I Hack

You're welcomed!

As you can see in my signature, I am also PMP certified. I liked the fact that you mentioned in your book that pentests should be treated as projects (which is true).

But your book really helped me get started!

Re: Where Can I Hack

There are two options, one is that you pay for labs and/or training, e.g. Hacking Dojo, Offensive Security, MDSec (labs only) etc., while the other is that you set up your own lab ( http://www.securityaegis.com/pentest-la ... n-edition/ , there are plenty of resources on how to build your own lab, get a VMware ESXi server on an okay machine that hosts your lab, unless you host it with e.g. VMware Player or Workstation.), and use free resources such as security tube, forums, research / whitepapers, etc. (Plenty of papers on exploit-db, plenty of videos on security tube, and so on.)
It's all about asking the right question, when you search for knowledge on Google.  :)
