STEP 6 - Vulnerability Scanning And Tools


In my previous step I have discussed about OS fingerprinting i.e finding that which OS the Victim is using.

Now We move further in scanning phase and now we will scan the systems for vulnerabilities i.e finding the weakness in security ,OS,database and so on..





What is Vulnerability???


As I have Told in First step that Vulnerability is weakness in the network,system,database etc... We can call vulnerability as the Loophole i.e through which victim can be attacked.. We first analyze the loophole and then try to use it to best to Hack the System of victim or oraganisation or website...



TOOL THAT WE USE FOR VULNERABILITY SCANNING ARE :
1. Nessus
2. Retina


NESSUS
The Nessus® vulnerability scanner, is the world-leader in active scanners, featuring high speed discovery, configuration auditing, asset profiling, sensitive data discovery and vulnerability analysis of your security posture. Nessus scanners can be distributed throughout an entire enterprise, inside DMZs, and across physically separate networks.








Features:

~ Plug-in-architecture
~ NASL (Nessus Attack Scripting Language)
~ Can test unlimited number of hosts simultaneously
Smart service recognition
~ Client-server architecture

Retina Network Security Scanner, the industry and government standard for multi-platform vulnerability management, identifies known and zero day vulnerabilities plus provides security risk assessment, enabling security best practices, policy enforcement, and regulatory audits.







Features:

Retina network security scanner is a network vulnerability assessment scanner.
~ It can scan every machine on the target network, including a variety of operating system platforms, networking devices, databases, and third party or custom applications.
~ It has the most comprehensive and up-to-date vulnerability database and scanning technology.

Now After Scanning the Systems for Vulnerabilites .. We will Now Going to attack the Systems but before this we should know the Risk . This risk can be reduced to great extent by using Proxies.. In Next Class We will Discuss what are Proxies and How they work and how they are going to Help us and some undetectable and untraceable Proxy servers...
Keep Learning...
