WGet Lab



The final lesson in the Web Application series focuses on the actual web application/web server data.  WGet is the utility we use to accomplish web data analysis in penetration testing.

The WGet lab demonstrates how to retrieve data on a web server that you specifically know is there. This is an extremely powerful scripting tool that offers a wide selection of switch options for total customization so you can scan for targeted information.

You’ll also learn how to effectively use the WGet tool more precisely, including how to use FTP specific parameters for conducting targeted FTP scans and web application vulnerability searches as part of a thorough penetration testing strategy.
