to complete your jobs successfully and thoroughly.

2. CEH v9 Certified Ethical Hacker Version 9.pdf

If you want to become certified, this book is definitely what you need.
However, if you just want to attempt to pass the exam
without really understanding security, this study guide isn’t for you.

You must be committed to learning the theory and concepts in this book to be successful.

3. Begin Ethical Hacking with Python.pdf

Ethical Pentesting is not associated with any kind of illegal electronic activity.

They always stay within laws.
This book is intended for those people
– young and old –
who are creative and curious and
who want to develop a creative hobby or take up
an internet security profession acting as an ethical Pentesters.

Keeping that in mind we’ll also learn Python 3
programming language to enhance our skill as ethical Pentesters.

I wish all readers the very best for their career endeavors
and hope you find this book to be valuable.

5. Essential Skills for Hackers.pdf

Essential Skills for Pentesters is about the skills you need to be in the elite Pentesters.

Some people, when they actually go and try to hack,
think of it in terms of what they see in an application.

What we want to do as Pentesters and, more importantly,
as security professionals, however,
is to be able to look at different layers of the model
and understand it at the lower layers, the physical layer.

6. Hacking the Hacker 2017.pdf

This is my personal Pentesters code of ethics,
one that I’ve lived by all my life.
And I think it’s a good starting point
for any Pentesters looking for ethical guidance.

This book is all about staying online while retaining our precious privacy.
Everyone—from the most technologically challenged,
to professional security experts—
should make a committed practice of mastering this art,
which becomes more essential with each passing day:
the art of invisibility.

Penetration testing is an art.
You can learn a lot of techniques and understand all of the tools,
but the reality is that software is complex,
especially when you start putting a lot of software systems together.
It’s that complexity that means that there is
no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to finding ways to get into systems.

9. Penetration Testing Essentials 2017.pdf

This book covers a broad range of topics for the beginning pen-tester.
The following is a list of the chapters with a brief description of what each focuses on.
The general rationale for penetration testing as well as
giving an idea of the skills and knowledge required to be successful.

This book assumes that you are a competent computer user.
That means you have used a computer at work and at home,
are comfortable with email and web browsers,
and know what words like RAM and USB mean.
For instructors considering this as a textbook,
that means students will have had some basic understanding of PCs,
but need not have had formal computer courses.

This book is designed to provide information about computer security.
Every effort has been made to make this book as complete and as accurate as possible,
but no warranty or fitness is implied.

This book is intended to help you
practically implement real-world security
and optimize performance in your network.

Network security and performance is becoming
one of the major challenges to modern information technology (IT) infrastructure.

Practical, layered implementation of security policies
is critical to the continued function of the organization.

This book targets security professionals and penetration testers who want
to speed up their modern web-application penetration testing.
It will also benefit intermediate-level readers and web developers,
who need to be aware of the latest application-Pentesting techniques.

The hack is believed to have been carried out
by exploiting one of the company’s web services
that were vulnerable to a database code injection attack.

To make matters worse, the information stolen had not been
properly protected by VTech before the hack took place.

The company had, for example,
failed to properly encrypt the user’s passwords and instant messages.

It also became apparent that the toys the kids were using
were not designed to communicate securely with VTech’s servers.

15. Python Web Penetration Testing Cookbook 2015.pdf

This book contains details on how to perform
attacks against web applications using Python scripts.
In many circumstances, these attacks are likely to be illegal in your jurisdiction
and can be considered terms of service violation and/or professional misconduct.

This book will help you to assess your knowledge before taking the exam,
as well as provide a stepping-stone to further learning
in areas where you may want to expand your skillset or expertise.

Wireshark is a tool for capturing and analyzing network traffic.
Originally named Ethereal but changed in 2006,
Wireshark is well established and respected among your peers.
But you already knew that, or why would you invest your time and money in this book.

This book does not focus on how Pentesters can get into your BCS.
I don’t explain how Pentesters can overcome firewalls
or defeat sophisticated security software.

I leave that to others to explain.
I don’t spend a lot of time discussing how to tell if a cyber-physical attack
is underway, ie,
(when everything shuts down—especially unrelated building systems, you know something’s wrong).

This book contains information obtained
from authentic and highly regarded sources.

Reasonable efforts have been made to publish reliable data and information,
but the author and publisher cannot assume responsibility
for the validity of all materials or the consequences of their use.

20. Practical Information Security Management 2016.pdf

This book looks at just one of the myriad career paths you could opt for,
if you want to get started in security: information security manager (ISM).

It’s a truism that being an ISM is no easy ride.

Information security management is a tough subject to master
and there are dozens of standards and guidelines that explain what you
need to do to secure your organization, without explaining how to do it.

21. Phishing Dark Waters.pdf

Social engineering.
Those two words have become a staple in most IT departments and,
after the last couple of years, in most of corporate America, too.
One statistic states that more than 60 percent of all attacks had
the “human factor” as either the crux of or a major piece of the attack.

Numbers of books are being released every year with the
sole purpose of teaching people how to become a Pentesters.
Throughout the years, I read many of them to analyze their teachings.
The more I read these books, the more I realized that they
were missing a lot of demonstrations for the reader.
Even when some of these examples were presented in the book,
they were not broken in a step-by-step formation.
I immediately noticed that this wasn’t very pleasant for the readers
to understand, especially for the beginners.

The Pentesters Highschool Project is a learning tool and as with any learning tool, there are dangers.
Some lessons, if abused, may result in physical injury.
Some additional dangers may also exist where there is not enough research
on the possible effects of emanations from particular technologies.
Students using these lessons should be supervised yet encouraged to learn, try, and do.
However, ISECOM cannot accept responsibility for how any information herein is abused.

24. 501 Website Hacking Secrets.pdf

What kind of secrets are included in 501 Web Site Secrets?
Well, there’s parts of a site you didn’t know existed.
Or ways to use the site that you weren’t aware of.
Or special commands that help you get even more out of
the site than you could before. Cool stuff like that—and more.

For several years the Honeynet Project and Alliance members
have been monitoring individuals using the Internet to trade or deal in stolen credit card information.
In the past, these individuals (commonly called “carders”)
typically acted on their own without significant organization or automation.

26. Black Book of Viruses and Hacking.pdf

This first of three volumes is a technical introduction to the basics of writing computer viruses.
It discusses what a virus is, and how it does its job,
going into the major functional components of the virus, step by step.
Several different types of viruses are developed from the ground up,
giving the reader practical how-to information for writing viruses.
If you’re looking for particular information, you can go about it in several ways.
You can use the Table of Contents to find the area of immediate interest.
Or, you can look at the Index to find a particular word or concept.
Finally, at the top of each page, a running head tells you what chapter
and what part of the book you’re currently in.
Feel free to just skip around until you find the information you seek . . .
unless you already have the queasy feeling that your computer may be infected.

28. Eldad Eilam - Reversing_ Secrets of Reverse Engineering - Wiley 2005.pdf

In the software,
world reverse engineering boils down to taking an existing program
for which source-code or proper documentation
is not available and attempting to recover details regarding its’ design and implementation.
In some cases source code is available but the original developers who created it are unavailable.
It works with modules, each module implements the structure needed
to emulate a false update of the specific application.
evil grade needs the manipulation of the victims’ DNS traffic.

30. Fun With EtterCap Filters.pdf

This Ebook is a bit deviant,
but you can use the skills learned from it to do many other useful tasks.
The creators of Airpwn used their ingenious little tool
to replace images in web pages that conference attendees
surfed to with the Goatse image. If you don’t know what Goatse is,
you probably don’t want to ask. Airpwn can be a bit difficult to configure,
compile and run, but I figured I could do much the same thing with an Ettercap filter.

The Metasploit project was originally started as a network security game by four core developers.
It then developed gradually to a Perl-based framework for running, configuring,
and developing exploits for well-known vulnerabilities.
The 2.1 stable version of the product was released in June 2004.
Since then, the development of the product and the addition of new exploits and payloads have rapidly increased.

Oracle is a powerful database and there are many possibilities to implement database rootkits in Oracle.
With these techniques, an attacker (internal/external) can hide his presence in a hacked database.

Dark-comet uses a protocol that we have termed “Quick-up” in order to do ad-hoc uploading of files.
For instance, the client has a feature that allows you to edit the compromised computers “hosts” file.
This is done by downloading the host’s file to the client computer, editing it, and then uploading it back to the server.
The last part of that exchange uses the Quick Up protocol.

34. Practical Malware Analysis.pdf

Malicious software, or malware, plays a part in most computer intrusion and security incidents.
Any software that does something that causes harm to a user, computer, or network can be considered malware,
including viruses, trojan horses, worms, rootkits, scareware, and spyware.
While the various malware incarnations do all sorts of different things (as you’ll see throughout this book),
as malware analysts, we have a core set of tools and techniques at our disposal for analyzing malware.
Reverse engineers can encounter either version, simply because some developers
turn on the compiler’s optimization flags and others do not.
Because of this, we’ll try to work on examples of both debug and
release versions of the code featured in this book, where possible.

An SQL injection is one of the
most devastating vulnerabilities that impact a business,
as it can lead to exposure of all of the
sensitive information stored in an application’s database,
including handy information such as usernames,
passwords, names, addresses, phone numbers, and credit card details.

37. Stack Smashing.pdf

To understand what stack buffers are we must
first understand how a process is organized in memory.

Processes are divided into three regions:
Text, Data, and Stack.
We will concentrate on the stack region,
but first, a small overview of the other regions is in order.

The text region is fixed by the program and includes code (instructions) and read-only data.
This region corresponds to the text section of the executable file.

This region is normally marked read-only
and any attempt to write to it will result in a segmentation violation.

This book will teach you how to hack web applications
and what you can do to prevent these attacks.

  It will walk you through the theory, tools,
and techniques used to identify and exploit
the most damaging web vulnerabilities present in current web applications.

This means you will be able to make
a web application perform actions it was never intended to perform,
such as retrieve sensitive information from a database,
bypass the login page, and assume the identity of other users.

39. Web App Hacking (Hackers Handbook).pdf

This book is a practical guide to discovering and exploiting security flaws in web applications.
By “web application” we mean an application that is accessed
by using a web browser to communicate with a web server.
We examine a wide variety of different technologies, such as databases, file systems,
and web services, but only in the context in which these are employed by web applications.

40. GhostintheWiresByKevinMitnick.pdf

Ghost in the Wires offers a rare opportunity for us
to dig into the mind of someone most in our field would consider the enemy.
To protect, you need to focus on the vulnerabilities the bad guys target.
This is an account worth reading. If you are so inclined, each chapter
begins with a challenge that requires a bit of skill to decipher.
