Join Malcolm Shore for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with websites, part of Penetration Testing Essential Training.
- A significant part of any pen tester's work…will be website testing.…While automated testing tools are readily available,…there are times when you might need to do manual testing…using scripting tools such as Python.…Let's have a look at how we can use Python…to work with websites.…Websites need to have pages uploaded…and one common way to do this is using FTP.…We can use the FTP server for testing…if we have its credentials.…So let's access the FTP server to check for our webpages.…
We import the FTP library…and then set the remote server address.…We then login with a set of credentials…and set the working directory…to the website folder, which is vas/www.…We then issue a dir command to get the directory listing.…Okay, let's run it.…Okay, we've accessed the target server…and listed the directory.…We can use the URLlib to retrieve webpages.…
I'll import the URLlib library…and I'll call the URL open function…and include the webpage I want to see…and I'll print it.…The next thing an attacker might do…is to modify a webpage to do something malicious.…
Cybersecurity expert Malcolm Shore reviews popular pen testing tools, as well as the Bash and Python scripting skills required to be able to acquire, modify, and re-use exploit code. He also provides a refresher on Kali Linux and introduces techniques for testing web services.
