Course description

There are many different types of Malware from trojans and worms to viruses and backdoors. Learning about how each threat is different is key and about how to mitigate it. Examples will be shown with Wireshark and how to interact with Packets. Also the human element of Ethical Hacking will be covered. Perhaps a company is very good in network security but lacking in physical security. This is an area that social engineering can come into play. How do you case an establishment and look for week points in the human element? And also how can you attempt to mitigate these threats. This course is part of a series covering EC-Council's Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH).


To get the most out of this course, this course assumes that you have a good working knowledge of Linux and Windows based networking environments.
