In this video, learn how to launch an FTP attack in Kali Linux. You start by using the vulscan option in Nmap to identify vulnerabilities within specific ports and IP addresses. Then explore the databases in the Metasploitable framework to find the specific exploit you’ll want to use. Finally, you launch the Metasploitable Framework Console, type in a few commands, and let Kali execute the exploit for you as you sit back and watch the pen testing magic happen.
- So one of the things that you'll need to learn…to be better and better at as a good pentester…is learning when to select a specific exploit or attack.…In other words, what are you going to attack,…and how are you going to attack it?…So, we just talked about FTP, so let's take a look…at one way that we may decide to choose an FTP exploit,…and then, how we would actually carry that out.…So let's go back into Kali, I'm going to launch a terminal,…now I know that the commands I'm going to…use are going to be very long, so I'm going to…stretch it out a little bit here.…
And let's go back to our trusty Nmap command.…Now, I use Nmap in this course over and over and over.…Please pay attention to that because that means…you're going to see questions on Nmap quite a bit.…It's not going to be 50% of the exam,…but you're going to need to know…what Nmap is and how it's used.…So in this case, I'm going to use the vulscan option.…So we see we have nmap--script vulscan…- -script-args, now this is a new one,…I'm not going to scan all of the vulscan databases,…
