Two-factor authentication is an effective way to secure online accounts, but many users avoid enabling this feature to save themselves from irritation of receiving and typing a 6-digit code that takes a few more seconds.
Penetration testing requirements often force penetration testers to do both external as well as internal assessments. This article covers the concepts that are required to setup a pentest lab in virtual box, which looks like a real network for a small-scale organization. This can be used as a base for setting up more advanced labs to practice penetration testing concepts in a legal environment.
Are you a security freak looking to learn MongoDB penetration testing? If yes, our little video course “MongoDB Pentesting for Absolute Beginners” is the perfect way to pick up the basics. This course explains common misconfigurations seen in MongoDB and walks the readers through the basics. A lab is then setup followed by assessments which includes Identifying and fixing NoSQL Injection and automated assessments with NoSQLMAP. During the lab setup phase, readers will setup everything from scratch, which includes installing MongoDB and bringing it up, setting up a database for practicing MongoDB assessments, installing PHP drivers and setting up a vulnerable web application for practicing NoSQL Injection attacks with MongoDB.
Before We begin our hacking & pen-testing journey its very important for us to set up a lab, where we can try out all the testing in a very safe environment. I have seen many tutorials and videos on this topic at various blogs & channels on youtube. But what i found missing was most of these tutorials just explained the very basics such as how to install a pen testing distro like Kali Linux or backtrack on a Virtualization software such as virtual box, & how to attack a pre-configured vulnerable box or a vulnerable distro. Most of these tutorials failed to explain simple settings and tweaks that can be done to create various hacking scenarios like for example tweaking the network settings from bridged to NAT etc., Also there are not many articles or guides on setting up a lab for intermediate and Advanced Users. Due the above reasons i have decided to write a series of very detailed articles on this topic
