April 17, 2006

I've just found a really useful article which reviews the top 15 security/hacking tools (all free). Some of them you may already be familiar with, but some of them will be added to my security toolkit today.

Here's a quick rundown on the utilities mentioned:

1. Nmap
2. Nessus Remote Security Scanner
3. John the Ripper
4. Nikto
5. SuperScan
6. p0f
7. Ethereal
8. Yersinia
9. Eraser
10. PuTTY
11. LCP
12. Cain and Abel
13. Kismet
14. NetStumbler
15. hping

These utilities are not only useful for hacking a system but for learning how to protect your own.
