Designed to give you a well-rounded overview of the various attack surfaces clients present, and how to go about exploiting them, this module will introduce you to the logical "next step" in hacking. Like most hacking techniques, if you approach client attacks from a high level first, it becomes simple and effective.
In many respects, the client represents the greatest risk to messaging security today, as attackers have grown very accustomed to combining client side attacks with social engineering. One of the key issues with client side security is to understand that when mail clients are developed security is not the main focus, as features tend to outweigh security. We as penetration testers and attackers should take full advantage of this key security weakness by attacking messaging security at the client level to fully demonstrate the real risk posed by this threat to our clients. In this lesson we will introduce some of the tools, techniques, and methodologies associated with attacking the client in messaging security.
