We have Star Trek, Low Orbital Ion Cannons, a cryptocurrency payment other than Bitcoin, and a decryptor named Spock! Need I say more? Discovered today by Avast malware researcher Jakub
Low Orbit Ion Cannon (LOIC) is one the easiest DDoS tools available, yet its simplicity and remote connection features make it an extremely effective tool. In this guide I will show you just how easy it is to launch a DoS attack using LOIC. For this exercise I used a Windows Server 2008 client with

In my previous post “Pentestit Lab v10 - Introduction & Layout”, I covered the Network layout and VPN Connection. Today I will be covering the first steps taken to attack the lab - which will include the following: Fingerprinting the GW machine Carrying out Intelligence Gathering Brute Forcing SMTP Finding the Mail Token There are 13 Tokens in total scattered
Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks have the same goals, but the implementation is much more complex and wields more power. Whereas a DoS attack relies on a single system or a very small number of systems to attack a victim, a DDoS attack scales this up by having several attackers go after a victim.
This reference guide describes every tool one by one and is aimed at anyone who wants to get familiar with digital forensics and penetration testing or refresh their knowledge in these areas with tools available in Kali Linux • Note! I’ve tried to gather as much information as possible, however, even despite that, some
