Metasploit: The Penetration Tester’s Guide

Want a great book on Backtrack 5 and the Metasploit Framework?

Look no further than “Metasploit: The Penetration Tester’s Guide” written by the all star cast of David Kennedy (creator of the Social Engineering Toolkit), Jim O’Gorman (instructor at Offensive-Security), Devon Kearns (a BackTrack Linux developer), and Mati Aharoni (created BackTrack and founder of Offensive-Security). 

This is the most complete and comprehensive instruction book for Metasploit that I have seen so far. The authors walk you step by step, command by command through using the Metasploit Framework as a penetration tester. You move quickly from the basics of Penetration testing through using the platform to perform the different phases of intelligence gathering and exploitation. 

Excellent book for anyone interested in a hands on approach to computer security, the Metaslpoit pro who wants a great reference book and those new to Metasploit that want a step by step instruction manual.
