Course Description

When an organization uses systems that are no longer serviced and supported and therefore, do not receive security updates, they expose themselves to serious security attacks. To ensure a healthy network ecosystem, security operations personnel must be aware of the vulnerabilities these systems are exposed to.

In this course, you'll explore how to conduct offensive security operations against legacy Windows-based systems. You'll learn to recognize older versions of Windows, identify common exploits for these older versions, and scan Server 2008 for vulnerabilities. You'll then learn how to enumerate Server 2008, exploit legacy systems, and gain a reverse shell on a legacy system. You'll then learn how to recognize common third-party applications and vulnerabilities and how to exploit them. Finally, you'll learn how to identify and avoid a honeypot.
