Finding A Company’s BreakPoint
The goal of this talk is to help educate those who are new or learning penetration testing and hacking techniques. We tend to see the same mindset applied when we speak to those new to pentesting “Scan something with Nessus to find the vulnerability, and then exploit it…Right?”. This is very far from reality when we talk about pentesting or even real world attacks. In this talk we will cover five (5) techniques that we find to be highly effective at establishing an initial foothold into the target network including: phishing, multicast protocol poisoning, SMBrelay attacks, account compromise and web application vulnerabilities.
