Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Disclaimer, part of Ethical Hacking: Exploits.
- [Instructor] This is one of a series of ethical hacking courses. And in addition to Kali Linux, it uses some third-party testing software. While we've done our best to insure that the tools we use and the sites we reference are legitimate, testing sites can be targets for hackers, and we can't provide any assurance that these sites might not be compromised when you visit them. Some of the sites which store the testing tools are detected as dangerous, because the tools have similar signatures to malware and may raise antivirus alerts when you visit them.
The testing tools we demonstrate are extremely powerful. They may demonstrates some of the same signature characteristics as malware and malicious implants and may raise antivirus alerts when you try to download them. Again, we can't provide assurance that the software hasn't been compromised when you download it, and so, as for any other software from the Internet, you need to exercise due diligence and take personal responsibility for anything you load into your system. The testing is mostly carried out inside a virtual environment.
To contain any unplanned effects of testing tools, and in the unlikely event that you do download malware, this will also help contain any impact.
Note: Learning about ethical hacking for exploits is part of the Malware competency from the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) body of knowledge.
