Ports

What's the best way to setup a home network? Why should I care about BGP?

Sort of.

Listening services may have a vulnerability. Not the ports themselves. You use a port scanner to see which ports are open and what, if any, services are listening for communications on that port. Knowing that application X version 1.23 may be running on, for example, port 25, gives you a good place to start researching for any known vulnerabilities with that particular application.

Metasploit is good places to start.

I've been wondering upon this same subject myself, and keep reading about using metasploit, but I don't want to use a program to do the work for me, if thats possible. I've been trying to learn how to do it manually, but I can't seem to wrap my head around TCP/IP...

Manually? You mean you are going to write your own exploits before you even know how you would do that? Sounds like a solid plan. </sarcasm>

Metasploit isn't point and shoot. There's a lot more that goes on. Check it out.

I use metasploit. I'm not saying it's a bad tool, I'm saying I would prefer to know how it works, rather than just the fact that it does work. Also never said I wanted to write my own exploits, what I want to do is learn how exploits work at their basic level. Isn't that what being a hacker is all about? The infinite pursuit of knowledge? Maybe it's just me, but that's how I've always done things...

I misunderstood then. Check out "Hacking: The art of exploitation" for more on the exploits used.

Thank you. I've had that on my Amazon wish list for months, along with hundreds of other books, but I think it just moved to the top of my to-buy list now. Haven't had much luck with books, but I also don't have much time to peruse them lately. School/work, etc. I will have to make that one a must read.

TCP/IP Guide is a good read to learn in that case. Depending on how much you wan t to know; the online version is free.

Goatboy posted this in another thread, this may help you understand what's going on in "Hacking: The art of exploitation"
