When it comes to creating powerful and effective hacking tools, Python is the language of choice for most security analysts. In Black Hat Python, 2nd Edition, you’ll explore the darker side of Python’s capabilities—writing network sniffers, manipulating packets, infecting virtual machines, creating stealthy trojans, and more.
The second edition of this bestselling hacking book contains code updated for the latest version of Python 3, as well as new modules and techniques that reflect current industry best practices. You’ll also find expanded explanations of strategies, from splitting bytes to leveraging computer-vision libraries, that you can apply to future hacking projects.
You’ll learn how to:
Create a trojan command-and-control using GitHub
Detect sandboxing and automate common malware tasks, like keylogging and screenshotting
Escalate Windows privileges with creative process control
Use offensive memory forensics tricks to retrieve password hashes and inject shellcode into a virtual machine
Extend the popular Burp Suite web-hacking tool
Abuse Windows COM automation to perform a man-in-the-browser attack
Exfiltrate data from a network most sneakily
