  1. Re: What Direction (In Learning) Should an Amateur Pentester Take?

    Thanks for your helpful feedback, everybody!

    Since it seems like I'm not the only one in this situation, I'd love to get some other takes on this.

    Especially to the experts on the boards: If...
  2. Re: What Direction (In Learning) Should an Amateur Pentester Take?

    The link thing was cool. So in general, would you say it's better to have a rudimentary grasp, at least initially, of a wide variety of tools (within a framework) than to be really an expert at just...
  3. What Direction (In Learning) Should an Amateur Pentester Take?

    Hi All,

    This question probably gets asked a lot, but before flaming me, please hear me out.

    I've dabbled in different aspects of network security and pentesting for a while now. I know some...

    Re: Need help with dual boot install

    Yeah, with 4 primary partitions, there's not much backtrack can do. I would see if you can delete one of the primaries (maybe a recovery partition or something that comes by default), and then try...

    Re: Cant Start Gui

    Well, do you know that your network is actually working, or have you just started up networking. Try pinging something:

    ping -c 4 google.com

    Or try loading a page. If your connection works...

    Re: upgrading software

    You probably need to recompile the virtualbox kernel module for the new version of virtualbox.
    Try running:

    /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
  7. Re: What and where credentials are logged when you connect to a network?

    To echo what many others have said, an IDS is your best bet for such a problem. Particularly, I recommend the Snort IDS. It is very effective, and offers both free rulesets (they are 30 days old, but...

    Re: metasploit , db_driver: command not found

    So, you're being very vague about what you're trying to do, but I'm assuming it's the use of db_autopwn. The latest metasploit uses sqlite3 by default as its database backend, so try:

  9. Re: Win2k3 SP1 vs MetaSploit - How many exploits can you exploit?

    If you're looking to run exploits with metasploit, then I'd say scanning your box with NeXpose is a much more sensible choice, given the direct metasploit integration. Try it and see what you come up...

    Re: Fedora Security Spin

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but as I recall, a lot of the decision to use Ubuntu 8.10 specifically came from it being the last Ubuntu to support KDE 3.5.x. I have no clue how that would get worked out...
  11. Re: Problem getting internet running using the: "How To".

    To me, it sounds like you have a wireless problem. AFAIK, the /etc/init.d/networking startup script only allows your computer to connect to the internet, make DHCP requests, etc. If you are having...

    Re: DVD, Video, Author, Burn and BackUp CD/DVDs

    To echo what everyone else has said, Backtrack, being heavily customized for pentest/security purposes, is not really everyday OS material, IMO. The specific packages you want to install will...

    Re: Tunes whist working with Backtrack?

    Personally, the only kind of music I can listen to while using Backtrack is progressive rock. Yes, Genesis, Jethro Tull, Gentle Giant, King Crimson, ELP, PFM, etc. Great for concentrating, sort of.

    Do you think this would get solved faster if it were moved to bugs/fixes? Just a thought. And Zadok, I was having the exact same problem.
