To accomplish this task, we will use our target machine as Metasploitable 2– a virtual machine with vulnerabilities intentionally created in it. We will attack it with Kali Linux, a distribution for hackers and pentesters.[Read more…] about How to list NetBIOS shares using the NBTScan and Nmap Script Engine
