    LOL BillV, I must have been smoking crack when I made that post.  I jacked it all up.  Thanks for the correction 🙂

    I’m very new to computer forensics and I’ve been looking into learning as much as I can over the next few months. I’m currently working as an IT Security Analyst and wanted to know what information, books or certifications are suggested.

    Sorry for the double post, in my previous post, I guess I was thinking out loud as a network security guy…lol  I didn’t mean to take away from how awesome that FREE tool really is.  I can just see one of our “I think I’m a hacker” employees getting a hold of this and giving me hell.

  • Nice article Don.  I think if I got a VPN server for less than a dollar, I would either think it is broke or the seller is up to something.  Don’t know that I would hook it up to my production network without a bit of testing first.

  • Well, I have been the victim of Dos attacks before on servers that I had and I can say first hand they are not fun to experience.  But, I don’t think I have ever seen a Dos attack that couldn’t be defended against at some level on the network.  I am calling hype until I see proof.

    The next thing I want to say about this exam (and I presume the class also) is it is much more focused then CEH.  I know I keep comparing to CEH and I am not meaning to disparage it but most people on this forum are familiar with it so it is an easy comparison.

    I doubt you are going to find any takers on this site Brian, but if you head over to astalavista.net I am sure you will find plenty that won’t even require that contract, and they will let you leave your firewall up.  lol

    But, they will also wipe your system for you too…lol

    I hope you understand using cheat sheets is grounds to have your certification revoked.  There are plenty of resources out to pass your exam without risking taking your exam for it not to be any good a little later down the road, if caught.

  • Well, you have to distinguish between the two types of Blackhat’s:

    1. The Blackhat who likes to know how things work and just wants to see if he can get past the security measures in place.

    2. The Blackhat that wants to tear the hell out of your stuff and steal anything they can find.

    Admittedly, both are breaking the law because they did not…[Read more]

    I think Dale and RoleReversal summed up the majority of my opinion, other than, it is kind of like asking which is the best OS; MAC, Linux or Windows?  You are gonna get so many answers it is rediculous.  In most cases, he who throws the most money at promoting/advertising their product wins, which Cisco has done a great job at.

    Lol, don’t hold your breathe on that one, as long as data is worth money, it will never be secure.

  • Gratz on passing your test Dark Knight.  I just completed the ECSA/LPT bootcamp yesterday and also had an amazing instructor, Larry Detar.  The instructor can make a world of difference in how well a bootcamp can go, cause as you know, a bootcamp is like taking the full set of Encyclopedia Britannica, opening up the top of your head and trying t…[Read more]

    It is very clear how the attacker sent an e-mail with the owner’s IP address.

    1. Hacker get’s connection to owner’s wifi (wireless)

    I would try it, but I would need an ROE, Contract and a Get out of Jail free letter with business card before attempting it.  LOL
