When usually we talk about penetration testing tools,
refer to Vulnerability Scanners like iss, typhon,
nessus, cybercop etc.
However penetration testing tools are those who
penetrate as well, the
above scanners do not do that.
One needs to have a working version of SSH exploit for
vulnerability detected by the vulnerability scanner,
so is it necessary for
penetration tester to have access to the latest of
underground exploit? or
could all this be done in an ethical manner too?
please guide I am so confused between two of these
