The Metasploit Framework makes discovering, exploiting, and sharing vulnerabilities quick and relatively painless. But while Metasploit is used by security professionals everywhere, the tool can be hard to grasp for first-time users. Metasploit: The Penetration Tester's Guide fills this gap by teaching you how to harness the Framework and interact with the vibrant community of Metasploit contributors.

Once you've built your foundation for penetration testing, you’ll learn the Framework's conventions, interfaces, and module system as you launch simulated attacks. You’ll move on to advanced penetration testing techniques, including network reconnaissance and enumeration, client-side attacks, wireless attacks, and targeted social-engineering attacks.

Computer Virus Books We are witnessing on escalating computer-virus arms race – virus, vaccine, counter-virus – that has created a whole anti-virus industry.. software programs, consultants, and many books. The most reliable intelligence from this conflict has been collected in Computer Viruses, Worms, Data Diddlers, Killer Programs, and Other Threats to Your System, by John McAfee. When corporations in Silicon Valley discover a virus, they call McAfee, who arrives in a specially outfitted virus-buster van. " His book, written for the computer-security trade, gives a comprehensive dossier of all known viral strains, post and present (up to fall 1989), and much insider scuttlebutt that is very readable for the lay user. On the other hand, Virus! by Allan Lundell is a wild, irresponsible, and highly speculative book that dramatically exaggerates the subtle attributes of computer viruses, and therefore is the more revealing one, in a vaudeville way. It tackles the question, "What does a computer virus moon?" Treat what is said as well- founded rumor. There's probably more in these two books than most want to know, but for both computer crime- and computer life-watchers, the trail begins here.

This excellent report has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. This research paper develops the foundation for a new military operating concept to "fight the net" in support of 8th Air Force requirements and stand-up as the new Cyber Command. It applies the Air Force Concept Development framework to examine cyberspace as a newly designated warfare domain, and proposes cyber capabilities and effects that the Air Force should develop and apply as it seeks to execute its mission in cyberspace. Before the Air Force can effectively lead in the cyber domain, it must first fully characterize cyber conditions, threats, and vulnerabilities, and clearly define how and where it can contribute to the national cyberspace strategy. Once the Air Force accomplishes these tasks, it can then focus on the nature of war in the cyber domain and consider the implications for military doctrine and operations. In order to successfully build capability and capacity for operating in cyberspace, the Air Force needs to institutionalize "cyber-mindedness" to underpin organizational, research and development, and human capital investments that the Air Force needs "to fly and fight" effectively in cyberspace.
