Join Lisa Bock for an in-depth discussion in this video Hacking ethically, part of Ethical Hacking: Trojans and Backdoors.
- [Narrator] The goal of the Ethical Hacking series is to help system administrators understand how to better protect the assets they manage. I'll focus on the concepts of ethical hacking in order to explain why it's essential in any organization's overall security framework. The tests and procedures I explore should only be executed on your own system or a system that you are charged with protecting. If ownership and responsibility lie with another party, be sure to get clear written instructions with explicit permission to conduct ethical hacking activities.
Do not investigate individuals, websites, servers, or conduct any illegal activities on any system you do not have permission to analyze.
Join cybersecurity expert Lisa Bock in this course as she explains how to identify vulnerabilities in your system, and how to then take countermeasures to prevent unwanted access. Lisa explains how hackers can use a Trojan to penetrate a network and lists the methods and tools that they use. She follows up by sharing how you can perform ethical hacking of your own system to detect areas of susceptibility, so you can address the flaws and defend against attacks. She also discusses rootkits, SSDP amplification attacks, ICMP, and more.
Note: Learning about ethical hacking for Trojans and backdoors is part of the Malware competency from the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) body of knowledge.
