Don't be a Hammer. Learning more tools with VMs and Vulnhub presented at BSidesSpringfield 2017

by Weston George,

Summary : A lot of people get sucked into using just a couple of tools for vulnerability research. When I first started out, I focused solely on the Metasploit Framework. While that is a great utility, there is so much more out there. In this talk I hope to show that through the use of sites like, and the walkthroughs they provide, you can branch out into other tools that will greatly expand your skillset, and change the way you approach CTF and vuln assessment.
