Centralia Security Lab has been hired by Haverbrook Investment Group to perform penetration testing on its systems. As a pen tester, you have been assigned to write the plan for what Centralia will do in the testing.
After collecting enough information about the target you will describe how to use that information to gain access to Haverbrook’s systems. Your one- to two-page plan on gaining access should include:
- details of the gaining access process in regards to the techniques commonly used to exploit low-privileged user accounts by cracking passwords through techniques such as brute-forcing, password guessing, and social engineering, and then escalate the account privileges to administrative levels, to perform a protected operation.
As you are developing the Gaining Access Plan, keep these questions in mind:
- How would you escalate your privileges?
- How would you establish a command and control communication channel?
