Too Busy to post – Bah!!

Well the past few weeks have been a little busy @ work so have not had much time to further my knowledge. I have managed to read about and try to understand how exploits are found and how the exploiter alters the application code to enable an exploit to run in an application, this was mainly utilising the buffer overflow method. There are some nice tutorials here @ Peter Van Eeckhouttes Blog, there’s a great paper on buffer overflows etc on

Happy reading, I’m off to learn about ‘Fuzzing’ and any other security stuff I can get my hands on.

Catch you all soon.

Welcome To The Pentest N00b

This is my first post on my new blog, hopefully this is were I’ll attempt to map my progress as a Pentester N00b.

I’ve already started on the road to enlightenment, I’ve bought some books, I got a netbook with backtrack 4 on it and I’ve been following some respected blogs, listening to podcasts and reading on security websites – I’ll elaborate on the above in future posts.

Hope this is gonna be a pleasant journey through the security universe.

Bye For Now
