14 hours, 5 minutes
What you will learnIn this learning path, we will begin by covering the basics of Python programming. This includes variables, loops, conditionals, exception handling and more. Next, we will explore some of the common vulnerabilities that Python can exploit. Moving on from common exploits, we will dive into using Python for network penetration testing: Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), scanning networks, building a Windows domain controller with Active Directory and attacking it with various Python hacking tools. Finally, we will learn how to use Python to attack web applications.
