How Do I Become A Penetration Tester?
Nik writes in, “I’m thinking about a career change. The career of pen tester/security expert sounds like it’s a growing field, how should I go about getting the training and experience to do pen testing professionally?” We interview a real live pentester, Mubix of Metasploit Minute fame, for some solid advice for Nik! (Corelan.be’s article, “How to become a pentester” is a good read, too!)
Will A New Wi-Fi Adapter Fix This?
Sean writes, “I have a TP-LINK N900 wireless adapter which supports speeds up to 450Mbps so I’m not sure why I’m only getting 40Mbps speeds. I had my MS Surface Book sitting next to my desktop and I was able to get about 134Mbps download speed tests so I think it has to do with my wireless card” and wants to know if an ASUS AC1900 PCI-E (PCE-AC68) adapter might boost his speed. Answers in the video, along w/ an option for powerline networking!
Solar charger suggestions for Shannon? Dan Writes, “For backpack/hiking have a look at powerfilmsolar.com. They are good quality for an Iowan made product. I got my panels from: http://www.renogy.com/ and the rest of my parts came from ebay. I have a total of 592w panels with a 35 amp charge controller and a 600w inverter. I’ve had my current setup for over six years now and I can tell you that when it comes to inverters, price is an indication of quality.” Tim adds, I would check out waka-waka.com/ great products plus helps out others.. I have a light and a power station which my twin boys have taken to Borneo. They are waterproof and rugged, they have survived many a camping trip.” Thanks to you both!
USB C Charger Recco!
John says “I noticed the car USB charger recommended was normal USB connections, if you have a phone that uses USB C there is a better option, CHOETECH makes a Dual USB car charger with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 & USB C Ports. Their USB C cables have also been approved by Benson Leung.” Thanks, John!
Do Something Analog!
Remember… once in awhile… put down the phone, step away from the screen, close the laptop… and do something analog, like Tony, who writes, “Howdy! I’ve been a fan for a while now! Love you guys! My favorite activity outside of the office has got to be kayaking! Here is a highlight reel of last year! Thanks again and keep up the awesome work!”
