Re: Backtrack vs ?

.so wat about the other linux os......are they that vulnerable too? No Linux and OS X are very secure, It's just DVL. DVL was coded to be insecure so it could easily be hacked. The point of it is for beginners to be able to hack it as practice. You can hack it while logged on to it, with the tools ...

Re: In need of resources.

To learn javascript or any other programming/scripting I suggest thenewboston, tizag and w3shools. As far as hacking javascript is primarily used for xss, just fyi. Playing around with ubuntu will help you learn linux. You will want to learn bash(get good with terminal commands), and get familiar wi...

Re: Backtrack vs ?

why not use it for pentesting.........i mean whats so bad about it?.... It's not bad for pentesing per say, but you probably would not want to use it for anything except as a target to try stuff on in a lab type environment, because it's so vulnerable. It's almost like running windows with no anti-...

Re: In need of resources.

If you want to learn security then you will need to learn some programming even if it's just the basics, but the the more programming you know the better. Learning programming may seem daunting at first but it's really not that hard. As far as web exploitation you will want to learn some html, javas...

Re: SQL Injections and the stripslashes statement

I believe it's 'magic quotes' that is actually used to remove the apostrophes and prevent sqli, and that 'stripslashes' is usually used in conjunction with magic quotes.(stripslashes gets rid of backslashes) http://www.tizag.com/phpT/php-magic-quotes.php I like to use the mysql_real_...

Re: Backtrack vs ?

I think that backtrack is probably the best, just because it's the most popular and probably has a lot more resources going into its development. Of course you can install any of the tools from backtrack on any distro you want, so I guess it's really just a matter of opinion. As far as alternatives ...

Re: Using cookies sniffed in Wireshark

This will ALWAYS display 'no' as you set it to no before echoing it. switch the two statements around and you will be shown what it was set to before it gets reset to no. Actually the order does not matter, I tested it before I posted. The setcookie function sends the logged_in cookie with the valu...

Re: Using cookies sniffed in Wireshark

If I'm not mistaken most sites use PHP sessions(which can not be edited by the user) instead of cookies for important stuff like login info. Cookies are usually just used for things that don't need to be secure. So the cookies may or may not be that useful. That being said: As far as saving cookies ...
