Week 4 – Reconnaissance

{loadposition adposition4}

Overview

In order to protect your network, domain, or website from attackers you need to know how much and what kind of information can be gathered by an attacker doing research (reconnaissance) on your organization. Knowing what information can be gathered by someone doing targeted Google searches is a good starting point. Specially formulated searches in Google that produce search results revealing open vulnerabilities on the web are called Google dorks.
