Titel / Title: Remote Testing of home based computers
Abstrakt Abstract:

Security testing is a topic that many organizations are discussing to impose on their tool in order to detect security threats. During my thesis work I used HIAB (Hacker in a Box) and Nessus (remote vulnerability security tool) to find out the vulnerabilities in the remote client PC. This thesis describes in detail the severe security issues which were found while running an experiment at an office network and individual home PC also through remote accessing and scanning. The results were inferred by describing the different security threats and vulnerabilities.
