THC-SCAN VIDEO - An explanation from an expert
The Hack-Counter Hack Training Course from Ed Skoudis is an interactive
CD-ROM. It consists of 2 CD's and is divided into six parts:
- Overview and Building a Hacker Tool Analysis Laboratory
- Gaining Access
- Maintaining Access
- Covering the Tracks
Each chapter has different sub-chapters with several videos in quicktime
where the author, Ed Skoudis, explains the technology and methods used.
For example, in chapter 3, Scanning, Ed explains the following topics:
- Understanding Scanning Techniques
- Search for modems using THC-Scan (Thats why I got my hands on a copy)
- Develop a network map using cheops-ng
- Conduct a port scan using nmap
- Scan for vulnerabilities using nmap.
I found the CD pretty interesting, even though it didn't cover much
new stuff for me. But if you are interested in security stuff and
don't know where to start, this CD is *definitely* worth a look. It's
not a "boring book" and the author is able to explain things very well
with a nice and clear voice. Since you also see examples at the
computer, it is much easier to comprehend the lessons.
To show you a bit, we got the permission to publish the 13 minutes
video about THC-Scan. Ever wanted to know how it works? Don't write us
mails anymore, but download this video and be inspired. Of course, the
quality of the videos on the CD is *much* better but we had to
downsize it to a downloadable size.
