Security, information, and event management (SIEM) is a term used to describe the management of security, information, and events. SIEM technology combines log data, security warnings, and events into a centralized platform that allows for real-time security monitoring analysis.
SIEM software is used by security operation centers (SOCs) to improve visibility across their organization’s environments, examine log data for incident response to cyberattacks and data breaches, and comply with local and federal compliance regulations.
SIEM software collects log and event data from applications, devices, networks, infrastructure, and systems in order to do analysis and offer a comprehensive picture of an…

OpenVAS is a vulnerability scanner that scans endpoints and web apps to locate and find flaws. Corporations often use it as part of their prevention strategies to easily find any holes in their manufacturing or development servers or applications. This isn’t a solution, but it will aid in the elimination of any basic vulnerabilities that might have fallen through the cracks.
From the OpenVAS GitHub repository “This is the Open Vulnerability Assessment Scanner (OpenVAS) of the Greenbone Vulnerability Management (GVM) Solution. …

Launch a scan against our target machine, I recommend using a SYN scan set to scan all ports on the machine. The scan command will be provided as a hint, however, it’s recommended to complete the room ‘RP: Nmap’ prior to this room.
To do an SYN scan you need to run the command
nmap -sS -p- <Target_IP>
-sS → SYN scan
-p- → scan all ports
NFS stands for “Network File System” which supports a system
over a network to exchange archives and data with others. Users and applications will view files on remote systems almost as if they were local files through the use of NFS. This is done by mounting all or apart of a file system on a server. Clients with whatever rights are allocated to each file. Will access the part of the file system that’s installed.

Finding various modules we have at our disposal within Metasploit is one of the most common commands we will leverage in the framework. What is the base command we use for searching?
Once we’ve found the module we want to leverage, what command we use to select it as the active module?
How about if we want to view information about either a specific module or just the active one we have selected?
Metasploit has a built-in netcat-like function where we can make a…
