It's been around for a long time. There are entire generations of hackers that merely know how to utilize exploits; So what is an exploit?
In the security software industry, an exploit is a piece of software, a chunk of data, or a sequence of commands that takes advantage of a bug or vulnerability in order to cause unintended or unanticipated behavior to occur on computer software, hardware, or something electronic (usually computerized).
In simple terms: A vulnerability is a bug in code that can be triggered by an attacker and an exploit is the method used to trigger the bug.
A vulnerability on its own is just a potential risk. It must be exploited before it becomes a problem. For example, having your car broken into is not good, but having your car broken into and then your laptop stolen is very bad indeed.
This course teaches you the basics of exploits and how to apply them (to Ubuntu Linux). It is a beginners course and requires no programming knowledge (we won't do programming in this course). You will apply some exploits, one of which will even make you a root user (administrator) on Ubuntu Linux 20.04.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner Ethical Hackers that want to learn about exploits
