Violent Python Book

Workshop Description

Even if you have never programmed before, you can quickly and easily learn how to make custom hacking tools in Python. In hands-on projects, participants will create tools and hack into test systems, including:
  • Port scanning
  • Login brute-forcing
  • Port knocking
  • Cracking password hashes
  • Sneaking malware past antivirus engines
With just a few lines of Python, it's easy to create a keylogger that defeats every commercial antivirus product, from Kaspersky to FireEye.

What You Need

I recommend a Kali Linux 2 computer, real or virtual. However, you can use some other type of Linux, or Mac OS X, or even Windows with Python 2.7 installed. However, you can't do these projects with a default Chromebook or iPad. Level V also requires a Windows computer (real or virtual).

I will have USB sticks containing Kali Linux and a few loaner computers available at HOPE 11.
