Penetration Testing | The Metasploit Project

Do you know what Metasploit is?  Have you ever used it?  Metasploit is one of the most useful penetration testing tool used by security specialists to look for vulnerabilities in a system.  If you are a hacker, this is a must learn tool for you.  If you are a penetration tester, this is a must have tool for you to find weaknesses in your own system and prevent hackers from entering.  Metasploit works in both Windows and Linux, although i believe most of the users would be Windows, professionals often use Linux for this task.  Visit their homepage here.  Speaking of the word hacker, i was enlighten by one of my professors in my university few days back, let me write it out in a new post :).

.NET and its vulnerabilities

Well i continued programming in VB .NET for the last 2 months and i finally got my own masterpiece! I’m able to sell the product but i have many doubts in mind especially crackers. I googled and searched various methods to get it safely encrypted as well as decompiling it (working both ways is so what gray hat does). Well i had found a variety of method of doing so and i’m pretty satisfied with the outcome! I never knew decompiling was so fun as well as injecting codes into it. Now’s the time to do some nasty art! Oh well.. luckily i’m a 90% most of the time C person… leave the 10% to VB .NET
