I am currently working through Offensive Security's Metasploit Unleashed online course.

I hate to reply to my own email, BUT...

I received dozens of (mostly off-list) messages, "I cannot find the course, will
you please send me a link"? Folks, get a clue! How can you call yourself a pen
tester if you cannot find an online course hiding in plain site? How do you
expect to be able to penetrate systems through obscure weaknesses when you miss
the 6,500Kgm gorilla in the room?

If you cannot find the course without a hint, perhaps you should be on the
Security Basics list and not the Pen Test list!! This list more or less presumes
*some* basic knowledge -- like how to use Google. (In case you don't know how to
use Google, please read: Google Hacking for Penetration Testers by Johnnie Long.)

BTW, clue: google on: Offensive Security Metasploit Unleashed



P.S. This rant does not mean that you should not contact me with questions
regarding my posts. Those who know me, know that I am always more than willing
to help, time permitting. However, please check to obvious first!

P.S.S. For those of you that emailed me off-list asking where to find the
course... no, I will not out you. For those that emailed the list with the
question... well, what can I say?
