    Default windows 7 vulnerabilities

    howdie friends,

    im studying Ethical hacking and computer forensics in a UK's university and we have as a task (for extra points) to hack into a machine where we have the ip, and modify a file. The machine we know its running Windows 7 professional (with nessus scans and nmap etc) it also propably has the firewall off, our teacher said that the version on this windows 7 is a full one but with no recent updates ( no RS no RTM),
    here is the nessus report... if someone has a clue on how to do that or knows something or need extra info ill be glad to answer and hear thanku very much

    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    I'm continually amazed that so many Universities assign these type of tasks without teaching how to actually complete them

    Perhaps they want their students to understand that penetration testing requires a lot of self directed learning?

    Some hints. Thorin has already pointed you to a tool to check for DCE vulnerabilities, its also worth looking at vulnerabilities relating to CIFS/SMB. The Hacking Exposed Windows book is a good reference. And assuming port 80 is running a web server...
