And then it starts installing packages and more packages and requesting to run things blackhat python administrator, which would surely be a hassle.

Black Hat Python

The Python code itself is simplistic, to say the least. At the very first chapters I noticed that the code was basically C code translated to Python, which wouldn't be a problem if you're thinking about replacing basic hack code with Python code -- because it is easier to find Python installed than GCC, for example -- but with the problems cited blackhat python actually make me think that the author never really cared about Pythonic code, just did the very minimum to make code run and that's it.

So, it's a bad book about hacking because it requires privileged access beforehand and it's a bad book about Python because it doesn't blackhat python Python good practices.

In the end, it's blackhat python a book with a few interesting Python libraries, nothing more.


As with the previous one, most of the topics and examples were Windows specific and required high level blackhat python theoretical expertise. That's not necessarily bad, but since the book started again with setting up the IDE, I thought the learning curve of topics covered won't be so steep.

Chapter blackhat python is about using the Scapy library to do interesting things such as stealing email credentials by intercepting packets and ARP Cache blackhat python.

You don't get much of an explanation of what Blackhat python or the ARP Cache is all about and if you don't realize that most networks are IP over Ethernet and use mac addresses not IP addresses this isn't going to be easy to understand. In addition most of the techniques are explained by presenting the code and making a few comments.

From here we move on to using an HTTP blackhat python - urlib2 - to do things like bruteforcing password pages and blackhat python out about files that aren't correctly protected.

Next we have a chapter on extending the Burp proxy. Again it is assumed that you have used Burp and know all about it.

Chapter 8 focuses on a sort of toolkit for Trojans on Windows - keystroke logging, taking screenshots and so on. Chapter 9 continues the Windows theme with a look at using IE for various tasks.

Chapter 10 deals with Windows privilege escalation and the blackhat python chapter is on automating offensive forensics.

Overall there are lots of details missing from these accounts. For blackhat python, it is often assumed that you have managed blackhat python get into a network and then it discusses what to do next.

It blackhat python tends to assume that you are going to run your creations as Python code when in practice blackhat python them to an exe would be a much better idea. In other words, many of the exploits are not complete but could be made so.

This is not a book that will please everyone. It really isn't about real world routine penetration testing, for example.

Black Hat Python by Justin Seitz

It does present a collection of technical projects and ideas that might please you if you want to use Python in this way. You might, however, be annoyed by the very idea of a book that deals with technical ideas in blackhat python same context as Trojans, stealing credentials and so on.

This is a good book if you want some fairly technical projects in Python and aren't put off, blackhat python better if you are attracted to, the black hat aspect of the presentation. Anthony Scopatz and Kathryn D.
