Since the inception of our Advanced Windows Exploitation (AWE) course, our students (who are always searching for more pain) have been asking for an accompanying certification exam. We are very pleased to announce the launch of the Offensive Security Exploit Expert (OSEE) certification.
Want a chance to get even ? For years we have been running classes that take great joy in torturing our students. We ask a lot of you, and the classes and certifications prove it. However there is no way around it: Some times we can drive you nuts. Here’s your chance to get even, MW3-style.
When we last left off in Part 3 of our series of posts on Johnny’s experience at our recent PWB in the Caribbean course, he was experiencing the highs and lows of exploit development, emerging triumphantly in the end. Part 4 picks up where we left off last time so we’ll let Johnny take it from here.
In Part 2 of our series of posts on the recent PWB in the Caribbean course, Johnny was desperately seeking an exit from the upcoming pain that is exploit development. However, he didn’t come up with an escape plan quickly enough and his tale continues in this latest diary entry.
Quite often, people tend to wonder what it’s like to experience an Offensive Security live training course. At our most recent live Pentesting with BackTrack course in St. Kitts, we had in attendance, Johnny Long of Hackers for Charity and he was good enough to keep a journal of his experiences during the course.
Every patch Tuesday, we, like many in the security industry, love to analyze the released patches and see if any of them can lead to the development of a working exploit. Recently, the MS11-080 advisory caught our attention as it afforded us the opportunity to play in the kernel and try to get a working privilege escalation exploit out of it.
Our Advanced Windows Exploitation (AWE) live course in Columbia, Maryland is fast approaching with a start-date of October 24. Not only is the first time we have offered this training outside of BlackHat, it is also the first time we are able to offer a full 5 days of training and a limited number of seats are still available for this intense course.
Over this past month, we have put a great deal of time into bringing our free online course, Metasploit Unleashed in line with BackTrack 5. The majority of these changes are cosmetic in nature but they should help to reduce confusion for newcomers to Metasploit and BackTrack while ensuring a consistent look throughout.
This month, even with the rampant development and release of BackTrack 5, we still devoted some time to updating Metasploit Unleashed. The Metasploit team is making a great deal of progress switching over to post-exploitation modules so we focused entirely on them this month and added many to the Metasploit Module Reference section.
This past month has seen more additions to our free Metasploit Unleashed training course, primarily in our on-going effort to build out the Metasploit Module Reference section. Also, with the Metasploit team moving away from meterpreter scripts in favor of post-exploitation modules, we have been updating the relevant sections of MSFU.
For the last two years Offensive Security has been taking the live training market by storm with its flagship course, Pentesting with BackTrack. We are very excited to announce that the next PWB live training will be held in an exotic location the Caribbean island of St. Kitts and Nevis….
