In today's episode, I talk about my fun experience using the Sn1per automated pentesting tool. It's really cool! It can scan your network, find vulnerabilities and exploit them - all in one swoop! It also does a nice one-two punch of OSINT+recon if you feed it a domain name.

And, I tell a painful story about how a single checkbox setting in a firewall cost me a lot of hours and tears. You can LOL at me, learn from my pain, and we'll all be better for it.
