I have also been increasing my reading. I have been reading "Ghost in the Wires", "Fuzzing", "Shellcoder's Handbook", "Metasploit: Penetration Tester's Guide" and "KingPin". All of these books are great reads. I have not finished "Ghost in the Wires" yet but it definitely has my attention. Kevin Mitnick, Dave Kennedy, HD Moore and Joe McCray are probably my favorite pentesters/hackers.
In addition, I have started another Offensive Security course: OSWP!! I ordered the wireless adapter, ALFA AWUS036H. I have heard good things about the adapter from the EthicalHacker.Net forum. On the BackTrack 5 forum, there are instructions on loading the Realtek drivers for packet injection. I am so excited. Also, I have a Linksys WRT54G wireless access point. I have registered for the class but I will be paying for it tomorrow. Hopefully, I can get the PDF's and videos over the weekend. I will be posting reviews of the modules and the exam as I go. Nothing too detailed of course ;-). When I took the OSCP course, I had a great time learning and I do not expect any less from this course. At least, this time, the exam is only 4 hours. :-). I have been reading www.aircrack-ng.org for awhile now, but never really tried out cracking WEP or WPA. I foresee a lot of that from now on. People still use WEP and weak preshared keys for WPA/WPA2. This will increase my ability to choose a different attack vector during a penetration test.
