Hacking the Web has never been easier. Whether you’re using Firefox as a stand-alone tool for information gathering, modifying your browser with innovative extensions, or using Firefox as a web front-end for other penetration testing tools, you can hack all within the potentially anonymous cozy confines of your customized browser. Putting it all together brings your hack-foo one step further. DNS lookups, uptime reports, hosted hash crakers and online scanners are at your browser’s fingertips. With Firefox’s innovative add-on feature, a number of powerful extensions have been developed for security scanning, ethical hacking, penetration testing and general security auditing. Finally, a number of penetration testing applications are built specifically with web-based front-ends. Add in a few recommendations for your setup and a few places to test your hacking skills, and your recipe for hack soup is complete.
