We love PunkSPIDER and PunkSCAN.
PunkSPIDER is the best thing since sliced bread and grilled cheese. PunkSPIDER is a great service and Alejandro during our Concise Courses Hacker Hotshot event not only really explained it very well – but with a depth of passion that we have rarely seen on our information security web show. Trust me, out of all the information security and assurance shows we have done – this is one not to miss. The PunkSPIDER and PunkSCAN service looks like it is going to be around for a while and we really encourage you to use the service and add it to your pentesting tool box.
So what’s PunkSPIDER again?
We’ve written a bunch on the subject (WTF is PunkSPIDER is probably the best place to start if you are completely new) and never get bored of posting new stuff about this awesome project. Some of the reasons we like it are that it is not only useful but it is also very powerful. It aids pentesters and security professionals identify vulnerabilities with significant ease.
Viewers and Concise Courses asked various questions to Alejandro (the co-deveoper) which he more than happily answered. They were:
(If you have a question please visit the page and post your comment or question. We can post a reply for you!).
One of the key things we discussed was the difference between PunkSPIDER, Metasploit and SHODAN. We recently posted an overview of the Metaploit Framework for beginners, and if you are interested in that then you should certainly also check out PunkSPIDER.
Have you used PunkSPIDER? Do you have any comments to add? We’d love to hear from you!
