Violent Python 3
June 7, 2022

Violent Python 3 Workshop Description Even if you have never programmed before, you can quickly and easily learn how to make custom hacking tools in Python. In hands-on projects, participants will create tools and hack into test systems, including: Port scanning Login brute-forcing Port knocking Cracking password hashes Sneaking malware past antivirus engines With just a few lines of Python, it's easy to create a keylogger that defeats every commercial antivirus product, from Kaspersky to FireEye. What You Need: I recommend a Kali Linux 2 computer, real or virtual. However, you can use some other type of Linux, or Mac OS X, or even Windows with Python 2.7 installed. However, you can't do these projects with a default Chromebook or iPad. Level V also requires a Windows computer (real or virtual).
