3m 21s

This lesson covers the basics of using Nikto, the web app vulnerability scanner. Nikto is one of the most commonly used website vulnerability tools in penetration testing and is considered an industry standard tool. The main purpose of Nikto is to examine websites and webapps and report back to the tester with any vulnerabilities that can be implemented to hack or exploit the site. This saves time in pen-testing and avoids having to manually find exploits for any found vulnerabilities.
