The baseline of security for any computer system is a defense against known exploits and attacks. In this course, you'll learn how to employ the core pentesting tools to help validate that your systems and software are secure against known attacks. You'll start by learning how to leverage the capabilities of Metasploit by using its basic commands, payloads, and options. You'll then explore Metasploitable, Commix, as well as Exploit Database, SearchSploit, and the Linux Exploit Suggester. Next, you'll learn how to use RouterSploit and ShellNoob to carry out tests. Finally, you'll examine how to use SQLMap to explore how SQL injection attacks are formed and how to protect against them.
