Introduction

In this chapter, we will take the host information that we have accumulated to determine the potential exploits to use against target machines and services. It is important to note that as you work through this section, you are going to be launching attacks against hosts. These attacks are going to create noise on the network that may be picked up by security devices. Under typical circumstances, you will spend substantial time validating whether your target is truly vulnerable to an exploit before launching it, so you don't create any unnecessary information that could be used to determine an active attack against a device.
