Violent Python shows you how to move from a theoretical understanding of offensive computing to a practical implementation of offensive computing. The book focuses specifically on penetration testing, nefarious web activities, forensic, wireless and network analysis using the python programming language. You'll learn how to create software that attacks various computer systems, forensically analyzes digital evidence, and create programs that target wireless and mobile devices. Specific hands-on examples include, using the radio on a mobile phone, automating the process of breaking into several computers simultaneously, and data mining on social networking sites. Reading this book, you'll discover how to use Python to exploit systems and build effective pen testing tools to defend your system from attackers. *Takes difficult concepts involved in offensive computing and shows you how to implement them using a minimal amount of code. *Demonstrates how to write Python programs to defend against incursions by hackers *Includes case studies and hands-on programming with Python that simulate actual attacks
