My Article in PenTest Magazine – Backtrack Compendium July 2013

PenTest Magazine just released a issue focused on BackTrack titled BackTrack Compendium. I wrote a piece on compromising passwords using tools available in Kali Linux. An image from the introduction of my piece can be found below. I haven’t had a chance to review the entire magazine however glancing over it and found many interesting topics such as “Improve your Firewall Auditing”, “Building a SQLI Test Lab”, “How to Set Up a Software Hacking Lab”, “Multiphase Penetration Testing with Metasploit, Backtrack and Armitage”, “Metasploit Primer”, and many many more. I have a lot of good reading to do this week 🙂

The magazine can be purchased from

This is the advertisement about the magazine. Its 150 pages of deep tech and totally worth it.

Building your Lab which will teach you how to configure your machine and how to combine the BackTrack with other tools;
