Recently I made an article on LinkedIn, I’ve done a lot of these over the years I have had an account with them and speaking generally the articles are well received.
People actually like to comment on them, share them and react to them, it’s a good feeling when something you have spent some time working on is appreciated by your peers.
Now for the first time someone has commented commending me on my Technical Writing skills.
I never thought I had this skill.
I thought it might be fun to add another cheatsheet to the collection, this time for the tool SQLMap.
SQLMap is an open source penetration testing tool that automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection flaws and taking over of database servers. It comes with a powerful detection engine, many niche features for the ultimate penetration tester and a broad range of switches lasting from database fingerprinting, over data fetching from the database, to accessing the underlying file system and executing commands on the operating system via out-of-band connections.
Today I have created a short blog post on how to install Kali Linux 2023.1, the latest version available from Offensive Security.
Firstly you will need to install some software to allow you to run the machine virtually on your Machine or alternatively to burn the .iso image file to a USB drive if you wish to install it on your system in a ‘dual boot’ configuration on an existing computer with a working Operating System or ‘bare metal’ where there is only the new OS (hello old laptop).
For the purposes of this guide I will walk you through setup via a software which is often called a ‘Hypervisor’.
So over this weekend I found myself trying (and failing) to run some Kerbrute bits and bats, turns out it was my error as Kali had remembered my slight spelling mistake and errornous commands when running things, so I decided to make a cheetsheet for Kerberos and things, so here goes something:
Shoutout to TarlogicSecurity for this one!
