The process of penetration testUploader: Patrick 23 days ago Subscribe 1622
Revealing the contents of the flag will be enough to ensure practical exploitation of the network or data theft. If the penetration test is conducted from outside the network, this is referred to as external penetration testing. It is extremely rare that an entire network has every service configured correctly, properly password protected, and fully patched. Usually, this phase is controlled in penetration testing so as to ensure that the mayhem on the network is limited. Penetration testing can either be done in-house by your own experts using pen testing toolsor you can outsource to a penetration testing services provider. However, software systems have many possible input streams, such as cookie and session data, the uploaded file stream, RPC channels, or memory. Since the attacker is an internal person, the knowledge about the system and the target will be abundant when compared to a test conducted from outside.
