- February 15, 2021

This is a little snippet of some of the content our team has been working on for our upcoming PWK cohort! Keep in mind the documentation is not fully ready yet, so ignore when I say "refer to your documentation".

Autorecon is a great tool, even if you are new to pentesting, that can give you plenty of information to learn from!

Having an effective (both in data enumerated and efficiency in the time spent) approach to enumeration is a high priority for any penetration tester. While there are many approaches to enumeration, any task that you need to do more than once should be automated. Autorecon allows you to automate the enumeration phase of your penetration test, without compromising on detailed results.

Don't use sudo or install as root for this part.

Also, to upgrade it if it is < , run python3 -m pip install --user -U pipx
