It’s finally here folks. Metasploit: A Penetration Testers Guide book from No Starch Press
We had to do a blog on a new and upcoming book, “Metasploit: A Penetration Testers Guide” written by Devon Kearns (dookie), Jim O’Gorman (elwood), Mati Aharoni (muts), and David Kennedy (ReL1K). As some of you may know, three of the writers are hosts on the Social-Engineer podcast and experts in penetration testing.
I’ve had the privilege of reading the book ahead of time and can say I was blown away at the amount of detail and knowledge in its pages. It started off slowly building you up as a penetration tester and establishing a fundamental methodology all the way up to finding zero-day vulnerabilities and creating your own Metasploit exploits and modules.
This book is for all audiences, whether you are new or a pro. I personally love how they had all these different scenarios that can be reproduced in a simulated lab. They even give you the instructions on building the lab in one of the appendices and let you follow along with all of the examples in the book. For the social-engineer enthusiasts there is an entire chapter dedicated to the Social-Engineer Toolkit and how to leverage it for social engineering attacks. (my personal favorite…. but I am biased)
Do you want to enhance your skill set? I was really impressed with this book and recommend it to anyone that is interested in Metasploit and penetration testing.
