    If you look up these titles in Amazon, there are plenty of other titles recommended. Start looking through them to get a feel for what else might be good for you or where you want your career to go.

    Hope this helps,

    Without a doubt, you will need to get your networking fundamentals down. To answer your specific questions…

    I’m not sure which Udemy course you mean, but Security+ is not what you want first if you’re looking at CompTIA. Look at their Network+ cert.

    On the other hand, the free Penetration Testing Student course by eLS you received simply by registering on this site has an entire Preliminary Skills section on networking. Programming, too! 😉

    Registering on EH-Net triggers an automated email regarding the Free PTS. I’ve dealt with this issue several times, and often it’s as simple as it being in your spam folder. Sometimes a filter on the email server blocks it, too, and you won’t see it on your client (depending on how you access your email).

    If this doesn’t work, we have some other means to handle it internally. So please use the envelope icon on every page on EH-Net to contact us. We’ll handle it as quickly as we can.

    Thanks in advance for your patience,
    Don

    Haven’t seen this error. Some quick searches shows others haven’t seen it either. It almost seems like this is an issue with the module itself. Is your copy of metasploit and the nexpose plugin updated? What was the command you ran to get this error?

    I would suggest going to the source and asking Rapid7: https://kb.help.rapid7.com/docs

    Nice!!

    We talk about this all of the time. Anyone can do this and make a great living. More than that it can be very fulfilling. You can also make it what you want. Do you want the corporate lifestyle – Go For IT. Want a more flexible schedule, remote working and self-employment are common. Have tattoos or a non-geeky academic background – NO PROBLEM!

    Life is what you make. For all who are reading JT’s blog post… What the hell are you waiting for?

    Unfortunately, looks like a rebuild is in your future. You could always try cleaning up everything you find, but that’s no guarantee that you found it all especially with root kits. Better safe than sorry. Is this just a test machine or do you use it for all personal things? You may want to consider changing passwords to anything you might have on that machine or for any sites you visited.

    Correct. We thought about skipping the numbering but keeping the format of having the main title and a sub-title for the next articles in the series. However, looks like we’re going back to numbering.

    Check out Part 3 in Rey’s personal blog: From Dev to InfoSec Part 3 – My First Cert

    Since EH-Net was acquired by eLS, we didn’t want this to seem self-serving.

    Stay tuned for Part 4 on Buffer Overflows making Rey’s brain hurt! It’s being editing now. Should be out this week.

    Good stuff. Thanks for sharing.

    Jason also preaches about the better chance of getting paid (and you can get more) the more details and spelled out consequences contained in the submitted report. Is this your experience as well?

    How’s the $$$$?
